Buying your home can be a daunting experience! With 13 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.

Sonya was excellent to deal with and responded quickly to queries. She negotiated a rate that I am pleased with and made the process effortless. She took time to understand my situation and find a manageable solution. I would use Sonya again and highly recommend her 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!

I have sought Sonya's advice on several occasions when seeking either mortgage advice or other insurance queries like income and mortgage protection. Her service is first rate and she covers all bases to come up with the right package to suit ... always having up-to-the-minute information and insight into what's going on in the market. Sonya's very approachable, professional and trustworthy. I really value the fact that I can put out an idea to her and it comes back packaged and ready to go.

Sonya was me and my partners mortgage and insurance broker and went above and beyond what we expected a broker to do. I suggest any one looking for a broker to give Sonya a call you wont be disappointed.

Sonya has been our mortgage broker for many years. She has worked tirelessly with the banks to get great results for our businesses. Sadly my partner passed away but Sonya is still there helping me. I don't know what I would do without her. Sonya has been a godsend. She's patient, honest and a really lovely person.

Sonya was referred to us by friends and I would highly recommend her to others. As first home buyers we didn't really know the process and what we were doing and she explained everything to us. Thank you Sonya for being patient and answering all our questions and for providing a great service!
