Buying your first home can be a daunting experience! With 20 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 was highly recommended by a colleague and we were extremely happy we went with her. Sonya helped us to refinance our mortgage and was super knowledgeable. She tailored a plan specifically for us and the whole process was super easy. Would have no hesitation in using her again. Thanks Sonya.

I contacted Sonya when I decided to buy my first home, and I don't regret it one bit! She has been amazing from start to stop. Being my first experience on the property market and anything loan related in New Zealand, she was very patient and explained everything very professionnally and very patiently. I was very happy with her and could not recommend her more. Thank you Sonya!

I've dealt with Sonya for probably close to 20 years now and she's consistently fantastic. Fair to say she navigates the twists and turns expertly and has helped me into several homes both in Wellington and Auckland. Distance has never been a barrier to great service. Sonya's knowledge is immense, her manner is empathetic, kind and funny.

I was so pleased to have Sonya by my side as I bought my new house. It's the second time we've worked together and, as ever, I really appreciate her expertise. As well as being super-knowledgeable about finance, Sonya was even better than my lawyers or agents about understanding how the whole process fits together. I trust her advice 100%.

Sonya was amazing (ka mau te wehi A++++++) and recommended by my colleague. We tried the bank initially, with poor results. She explained the procedure during a stressful time and reduced the pressure when we needed to make immediate decisions.Without her informative and professional delivery, we wouldn't have been successful. We positioned ourselves competitively for the hot market through her excellent com's. Nga mihi nui Sonya. Naku iti noa, na A-J and Chantelle

We appreciate having Sonya going in to bat for us over the last 4 years. She has made a scary process easier for us. Our last refinancing venture ended up being a better outcome than we expected when we started out. Thankyou for your understanding and expertise.

We've been lucky to have Sonya assist us with establishing and managing our mortgages for 13 years. She is very approachable and her communication is reliably efficient and friendly. We particularly appreciate how she explains it all clearly, making sure that we understand the process as we go along. We trust her advice and know we're in a better position thanks to her help. F Morris and L Prebble.

Awesome service, knowledgeable and easy to deal with, had been to other mortgage brokers and weren't impressed. Sonya made sure we got approval even though it probably wasn't the easiest task. Thanks again Sonya, will definitely be recommending you to others!

We've worked with Sonya on several property purchases and insurance brokering over the last 7 years. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. We have no hesitation in recommending Sonya to anyone who wishes to receive great advice and excellent service.

Sonya is fantastic. She is very professional, with a lovely manner. As a self-employed - later in life - first-home buyer, there were a few twists and turns, complications and delays purchasing my home. Sonya was very patient and was there every step of the way throughout the loan application process. She made the process easy. She is very knowledgeable and helped me to choose the best loan structure to suit my situation. I couldn't have done it without Sonya's assistance. Thank you. Sonya :D

Sonya is an absolute pleasure to work with, she is very good at breaking down purchasing a house and making it a simple, smooth process. She has excellent relationships with lenders and continues to assist throughout the term of your mortgages; negotiating excellent rates on your behalf. We could not recommend her services enough, we are very thankful for all of your help over the last 4 years. Fraser and Lilian

Sonya is a brilliant mortgage broker. Sonya has helped me with the purchase of my first house and more recently Sonya helped my wife and I with the purchase of our family home. This was a tricky process as we had set up a LTC to purchase the two properties we had in addition to purchasing a new family home. Sonya was excellent in working through this process with us, we avoided break costs and the new loans were structured to put us in a good financial position. Tob job, A+++ recommendation

Sonya is the Best!! No doubt about it. Sonya has worked with us over the past decade to negotiate great Interest Rates and successful applications to the bank for mortgages. She tells you straight up what you need and what you will qualify for before applying to the bank. She works tirelessly to help you achieve the reality of owning your own home or upgrading to another home, exploring all options along the way. You won't regret engaging this lady to work for you! Extremely Highly Recommended.

Sonya is fantastic to deal with. She worked with us as we tried to find a house for nearly 3 years! Throughout that time she was patient and was always willing to accommodate our frequent requests, last minute changes to loan amounts. She provided invaluable advice on the house buying process and was fully involved in our house search for the last 3 years. We would thoroughly recommend her services and look forward to working with her in the future. Thanks Sonya. Robin & Ailua

Sonya was fantastic. She took something that was overwhelming and confusing and made it manageable and comprehensive. Pragmatic, patient, and generous with her time, I’m very grateful to have had Sonya’s support during this process. Thank you, Sonya!

Sonya is brilliant. She helped me navigate my first house purchase, found me a good rate and facilitated great relationships with everyone involved at the bank and elsewhere. She was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so thankful for their advice.

We received the most amazing and comprehensive service imaginable. It was our first time dealing with a home purchase in NZ and Sonya made it super easy. She secured us an amazing interest rate AND got us a big cash bonus. I trust her services unconditionally and can highly recommend Sonya Reid. Barry and Maryam Geldenhuys
