“We had a dream of buying our first home, but we knew that our situation would present a real challenge for most banks/brokers (we were both self-employed, both with less than a years’ trading history). Stephen was positive from the get-go, showing us the ways which we could look stronger on paper before using his contacts to choose the most likely bank to be receptive to our application. Any other broker would have put us in the ‘too hard basket’, but not Stephen – he 100% embraced the challenge.
The relationships that Stephen has honed over the years in the finance industry are second-to-none. It was these relationships, combined with his open minded approach to our situation and making it look as strong as possible, that enabled a successful outcome. Plus, Stephen’s friendliness made us feel at ease from the beginning – something that, as first home buyers, we really appreciated.
Our mortgage was approved by the bank, which ultimately enabled us to buy our first home – a dream that we didn’t think was a possibility for at least a few years.
Joel & I have been on cloud 9 since our offer went unconditional. Being first home owners is a dream come true. We can’t recommend Stephen highly enough – he came through for us when others wouldn’t have.“
