Why did you see an Aussie Mortgage Broker?
To refinance our owner occupy loan.
Why did you choose Aussie?
The reason we contacted Aussie was because our then mortgage provider was hiking up interest rates over and above the reserve banks raises, and we felt there were better deals out there. We contacted Aussie, because they seemed to have the best reputation in the market, and at the same time were offering a no string payment of $300 if they couldn't help you get a better deal.
How much did you borrow?
Did your Aussie Mortgage Broker save you money?
Yes, Paul is self employed and our loan was originally approved as a low doc with a finance company that were charging over the market rates. We were able to have the loan approved as a Full Documentation loan and the savings per month were considerable (especially as the current financier was not passing on very much of the RBA cuts).
As a result we saved almost one third compared to previous payments, and have no hesitation in recommending our Mortgage Broker Catherine to anyone for mortgage advice.
What did you like most?
I have dealt with a number of Australian companies who will 'call you back' only to never hear from them again, but Catherine Dodd responded promptly, was flexible regarding meeting us and was able to craft a better arrangement with little aggravation on our part. Not only this but as the process went through, we have benefited from falling rates as Catherine had the foresight not to tie us into fixing our rate.
