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.

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

After a friends recommendation, we have now successfully used Sonya twice to great reward. Her hard and expertise was the main reason we were successful in purchasing our 2nd house and she has become part of our trusted circle of advisers. Highly, highly recommended

Sonya was absolutely fantastic to work with — friendly, supportive, patient and always ensured I understood the next steps in the process. She has very strong relationships with the banks and is an expert with construction mortgages. Sonya put in a tonne of work coordinating between me, the bank and the building company to get our loan across the line. Working full time with kids, I could not have done this on my own. I cannot recommend Sonya highly enough. Thank you again for all your help!

I've used Sonya twice and, in my opinion, she is the best mortgage broker around. She is quick and efficient, totally reliable and gets me the best deals, much better than if I were to apply myself

When you and your team (lawyer, accountant quantity surveyor bank) are looking to buy Sonya is the person you want as your mortgage broker. She puts together great deals that fit your needs. When things hit pressure points as they often do her knowledge & experience ensures fantastic advice and solutions all delivered with calm and humour. She gets that this is a big deal for you and works amazingly hard to make it happen. If you don't have a team she can also help with that. She is the best.

My partner and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Sonya in our quest to find our first home. Sonya was with us every step of the way and provided professional and attentive advice throughout. Sonya approaches customer care with real authenticity and warmth, and her knowledge of the industry yields real practical results. We look forward to working with Sonya in the months and years to come (assuming she'll have us, that is!) and couldn't recommend her services highly enough.

Sonya is amazing; we can’t thank her enough for helping us with our first home purchase & insurance. As total newbies (& having a bad experience with a previous broker who assumed we knew all the lingo), Sonya took the time to talk through each step, I never felt silly asking a question. She was incredibly efficient in responding to emails/calls. She presented us with realistic options and communicated clearly about what we needed to do so we didn’t miss deadlines. Highly recommend her service!

My partner and I have been working with Sonya over 3 years now. We went through a very long build off the plans process. Sonya really provided good advice at the start of this journey, helping us understand the overall process of purchasing this contract. When it came down to deadlines, Sonya made it so easy for us and we didn't have to stress or worry about meeting 3rd party deadlines, it was covered by Sonya, or sorted shortly after. We're very happy with her services and Sonya's approach.

We have been using Sonya for over ten years and she is like our little "genie in a bottle", always obliging to our every request - no matter how big or small. Whilst we're currently residing overseas, she recently managed to get a "better than advertised" interest rate for one of our properties in NZ. As usual, she always delivers! Highly recommended!!!

We recently purchased a home and are very busy running our own business and did not have the time to complete the process. We used Sonya Reid Mortgage Brokers,and quickly realised Sonya is an expert in her field, her advice, quick responses throughout the purchase was fantastic.We ended up with the best rate and her negotiation skills are impressive. Sonya did take the stress away from us, covered all bases, and always had our best interest at heart. We highly recommend her Thank you Sonya

Exceptional service. We were recommended Sonya by friends and we are so glad we had her helping us with the many logistics of buying a home. She was always quick to reply to emails or phone calls and totally professional and helpful throughout the months we worked with her. Without her we may not have secured our bank loan. Thanks so much Sonya.

We came to Sonya to help us find a mortgage to buy our dream, albeit left field, piece of land. Sonya was open and encouraging from the get go and persisted with the banks to get us the finance we needed. She asked all the right questions and walked us through a whole process . Although I imagine this was a relatively small piece of business for her, has been the Big game changer for our family and we couldn't have done it without her. Thanks very much Sonia!

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.
