The first thing that impressed me about Aussie Manuka was their ability to explain things to me. I'm a Financial Controller yet, while I have advanced accounting knowledge, I am not a mortgage expert. They were able to put things in terms I could relate to and that professionalism gave me the knowledge and confidence to go away and play with the figures and explore my options. They were also very good at picking up little things that might have caused an issue; they investigated those and returned with options for me to consider. Their data is always accurate and up-to-date so whenever I go to speak to them about the market they are already across it. That means we can have proper discussions and that gives me great confidence. I've been with Aussie Manuka for a few years now and, because they are subject matter experts, I've recommended them to friends, family and work colleagues, safe in the knowledge they will get the same great service I do.
Scott was recommended to me by a colleague who he had helped with a mortgage. Scott was extremely patient, accommodating and he explained everything to me thoroughly. I changed my mind about a few things along the way so it took quite a while to get through the process. He just got on and helped with any changes to the paperwork that needed to be done but always made sure that I understood what was going happening. The service was very personal and Scott guided me through everything. It wasn't just Scott that made the whole process easy though. Vicki was wonderfully helpful, and fantastic throughout, and the whole team at Aussie Manuka were always welcoming anytime I visited the office. A big thank you for all your help! I would recommend Scott if you are looking for a mortgage broker who will really take the time to look after you and support you in achieving the best outcome possible.

Aussie Manuka helped me secure my first mortgage about 15 years ago. Back then, I had a not so good credit history but I was upfront and honest with Aussie. They just took it all in their stride and helped me. From day one they were fantastic to deal with. 15 years later, they are just the same. Working with Scott and the team to refinance has been fantastic. They did a great job and it meant I didn’t have to worry about anything in the process. They took everything on board, worked with me, kept me informed every step of the way and delivered.
They even went above and beyond and introduced to me to a number of people in their network, a financial planner and a realtor, simply because they wanted to help.The team are efficient, up-to-date with what is happening in the market, informative and helpful – they are the whole package! I’m very happy with the result.
My mid-wife actually referred us to Aussie Manuka. She had gone through a tough time and she was so impressed with how Scott helped her that she was only too happy to get us in contact with them. Right from the start we were blown away by how attentive they were. It took us a while to sell our outgoing property but Scott was always there stayed in touch for when were ready. I felt really informed about everything because Scott and the team always took their time to explain things in a human way. That was in stark contrast to our experiences with other mortgage brokers! We had a few issues with our outgoing property, and timeframes were a bit tight, but the Aussie team just rallied together and helped us get it all done when we needed to move. We were very impressed.If you want a mortgage broker that is great at communicating, and always easy to get hold of, I absolutely recommend contacting Scott and the team at Aussie Manuka
