Buying your first home can be a daunting experience! With 16 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 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 solicitor, getting a registered valuation and a building report. You will be informed every step of the way.

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

80% mortgages available for rental properties.

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.

Sonya made what I thought was impossible possible! Sonya helped us buy our first home over 10 years ago, we remembered her friendly, quality service and when looking to buy a second property, we called on her again. Thank you Sonya for helping us and for such proffesional and sound advice.

I cant thank Sonya enough for obtaining finance on a very awkward property purchase. Her degree of enthusiasm and professionalism impressed me so much, I fondly remember her diligence and tenacious efficiency months later as if it were yesterday. Sonya's a High Achiever and I Highly Recommend her Broking Services Give her a call. You'll never regret it..

Sonya helped me to secure my home in a property settlement she was very understanding with me and patient as this took some time she was in contact with me via phone and e mail which suited me so I could get on with work. She managed to secure a pre approval for me with no hassles and sorted out all the necessary paper work all I had to do was go to the bank and sign the papers. I highly recommend Sonya to all and shall be using her services again. Thank you Sonya:)

Sonya ticked all the boxes. I felt secure in the fact that I could safely leave the process completely in her hands. Her knowledge and years of experience put me at ease and for me this was paramount. I will be using Sonya's services again in the future and will be definitely be recommending her services to family and friends. Thanks once again Sonya!

Can't thank Sonya enough for her fantastic friendly service. As first time home buyers we weren't sure how the financial process worked and Sonya really made it easy and understandable. We really feel like Sonya took the time to understand our position and our individual circumstances and took the effort to find the right solution for us. She made the finance side of buying a house very easy and took the stress out of the situation. We wouldn't want to go through this process with anyone else

Sonya was recommended to me by a work colleague and it's the best advice I have ever taken. The whole experience of dealing with Sonya has been positive and rewarding. From initial contact and discussion through to loan approval Sonya has made it easy and stress free the whole way. I highly recommend Sonya and her service to anyone contemplating borrowing money.

Sonya was absolutely incredible throughout the entire process of buying our first home. Everything was always explained so clearly and we always felt extremely comfortable and confident under her professional guidance. We would never hesitate to recommend Sonya and already have multiple times.

we have been working withSonya for a year or so looking at options for a mortgage and then what house fits our approvals etc. given we are self employed and work half in NZ and half overseas it made sense to use a broker and Sonya was recommended to us. What an excellent recommendation and we absolutely recommend her to anyone with non standard requirements. Thanks Sonya !

We highly recommend Sonya. As first home buyers we were stepping in to the unknown. Right from the beginning, Sonya made the journey easy and smooth. She is knowledgeable, patient, explained our position and options well and in a way we could understand, and was always so friendly and willing to help. Sonya, we think you are super. Thanks so much - Helen and Alejo

Sonya is very helpful. She made the process easy and achieved a great result for us . She was clear and gave us the confidence to make our decisions. We had thought we would never be able to get a house . We really recommend her services.

Sonya is the absolute best! From start to finish, every step of the way; as first time home buyers answering relentless questions was never an issue and when things got tricky she knew what to do! (All the years of knowledge and experience was so useful and needed in our situation.) We were referred to Sonya by a friend and we will make sure anyone we know buying a house, talk to her first. Thank you so much Sonya, the reason we have a house is because of you!
