Buying your first 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 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% 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 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 a real superstar - she understood our circumstances, knew the market and secured us an excellent deal without a murmur of difficulty. We feel very lucky to have secured Sonya's help and recommend her services to anyone requiring mortgage and/or insurance assistance.

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!

Sonya is a true miracle maker who moved mountains for me when the chips were down in a very stressful situation. Fast, concise, honest, kind and good communication. What more would you like from a mortgage broker? Would highly recommend and will be using her again in the future. Thanks for everything Sonya.

We used Sonya in 2009 when we bought our first home. She made the process seamless and got us a great interest rate and loan term. She facilitated all the communication between the parties which made everything easier. In 2015, we contacted her again for a refinance. Our situation was tricky and seemed hopeless, but within a few days, she had gotten us a loan approval. I can't say how glad I am that I used her help again. Sonya is professional, diligent, and works hard for her clients.

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
