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.

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.

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 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!!!
