Buying your first home can be a daunting experience! With 17 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.

I have been using Sonya for more than 10 years now the the service remains exceptional. I've just purchased a new house whilst living overseas, and whilst it may seem daunting purchasing a house from overseas, I provided all of the details to Sonya and between her and my solicitor, everything was done including a very competitive rate from the banks. I personally had very little involvement in the whole transaction from start to end. Highly recommended.

Sonya has provided an absolutely fantastic and professional service for us when buying our first home. She has provided advice from the start of the process right until we found the place we bought. Her recommendations for valuer and lawyer have been top notch too. We highly recommend Sonya as a mortgage and insurance broker, and will continue to use her services for years to come.

We hadn't planned to use a mortgage broker and so only brought Sonya on board at the last minute. Thank goodness we did! As soon as we met her everything became so much easier. She was totally professional, competent and reassuring. Despite the tight deadline she was able to negotiate a fantastic deal with our bank - way better than anything we'd anticipated, saving us thousands. Our lawyer commented that it was one of the best deals she'd seen! I highly recommend Sonya - she's fantastic!

Sonya is the first mortgage broker I have used. Sonya got the deal I don't think would have been available to me and this was with my current bank the bank that I have been using for 20+ years. I hope to continue using her services in the future.

We have had Sonya look after our mortgage management for a number of years. The friendly, professional and timely response along with the range of considered options Sonya brings to the table that could suit our needs is what keeps us coming back.

Thanks Sonya, you've been great to work with. We've (and the rest of our family!!) have worked with Sonya over a period of years. Sonya has always been professional, open-minded and just 'around' to discuss 'ways' we could achieve what we wanted. Our family would definitely recommend Sonya to others! Thanks Sonya.

My partner and I had signed up with Sonya back in 2015 and have only just purchased our first home this March 2017. Sonya was so patient and understanding throughout the past 18 months. As first home buyers, we didn't have a lot of knowledge on how loans, insurance etc worked. She made this process much clearer and easy for us - we didn't have to worry about a thing with the bank - she had this all sorted! I have recommended Sonya to all my family and friends! Such a lovely person to deal with.

From the first contact with Sonya it was clear I was dealing with someone who really knows her business, she was very informative, professional and friendly.

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.

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
