Buying your home can be a daunting experience! With 15 years in the mortgage industry, I can advise you on the best mortgage option tailored to your own circumstances.

Let's arrange a pre-approval which is necessary before you go house-hunting. This gives you written confirmation of the maximum amount you can borrow, which puts you in a strong negotiating position when you are ready to make your offer on a property.

We can discuss different home loan options, loan repayments and the whole home buying process. This includes making your offer, what special conditions to include in an offer, when to get your solicitor involved, when to pay over your deposit, and an explanation of the legal process, start to finish.

I can also assist you in liaising with your real estate agent and solicitor, getting a registered valuation and a building report. You will be informed every step of the way.

90% mortgages available - accredited provider of the Welcome Home Loan scheme.

I am happy to share my knowledge and experience as a property investor for those interested in finance for rental property.

As a qualified personal risk insurance adviser, I can advise you on the best options to ensure you keep your home in the unfortunate event of illness, redundancy, serious injury or death.

My services include: mortgage broker, insurance broker, and mortgage adviser.

Quite simply, Sonya is just amazing. She has helped us buy 3 houses and manage our mortgage over the last 9 years without us needing to deal with our bank. She has consistently got us discounted interest rates, extra benefits, and has always prioritised our needs and individual situation over anything else. We'd thoroughly recommend Sonya to anyone -In fact, anyone considering buying a house should get in touch with Sonya first!

Sonya was such a help to us arranging our mortgage for our first home purchase. The whole process is overwhelming if you've never done it before, but she sorted it no problem for us, getting us a great rate and explaining to us the process so we understood what was going on. We would 100% recommend her to anyone - she provides such a friendly and professional service - Lauren & Nick

Sonya has managed my mortgage requirements for my last four houses. She has consistently negotiated really good interest rates and a mortgage structure that has suited my lifestyle at the time. I have just bought my fifth house and she got great rates for me at this time of rising rates. My friends are jealous :) Sonya is a pleasure to work with, and shares in my excitement with my house purchases and my life changes, taking a genuine and caring interest. Totally recommend her services :)

I've relied on Sonya for my recent property transactions. Not only did Sonya offer an expert alternate opinion on what could be done but she was also able to present multiple options for me to consider. These options were consistently better and more sound than solutions direct from my own bank. Things that I thought may cause issues were rapidly sorted. I will continue to use Sonya’s services for any further property transactions and highly recommend her services.

I had first hand knowledge of the excellent, speedy and professional services Sonya provides through my daughter's experience in buying her first home. I asked for her help in renegotiating my own mortgage situation. She has been brilliant in negotiating a better than I ever hoped for deal. It helps to work with people who can speak 'bank talk'. Thanks Sonya, I hope this is the start of an ongoing relationship where I will use all of your services.

Sonya was great. She made the purchase process easy to understand for my daughters first venture into home ownership and managed to secure great rates with our complex property deal under what was very short notice. It was no problem for Sonya to find a venue close to work for our meetings, which took a lot of the stress from the situation. Sonya regularly kept us updated with progress and liaised well with our lawyer. I fully recommend Sonya and will definitely use her services in future.

Sonya was brilliant with getting my wife and I our first home just before the lending rules changed. She went over and above to negotiate with the bank to get us exactly what we wanted which was an absolutely outstanding result given the situation. Sonya will be the only Mortgage Broker for us in the future.

Sonya was incredibly helpful to my partner and I when we decided we wanted to buy our first home. We had no idea (and I mean NO idea) where to even begin. Sonya got us on the right track, told us everything we needed to know, who to call for what and when and basically guided us through the entire process with knowledge and understanding. we will definitely use her services again. Thank you so much, Sonya, we are loving living in our own home!
