Thank you for your time on the phone yesterday and copying me into the below email.
I just wanted to take the time to say that I have never seen such a comprehensive email provided to clients by a Broker before. Very clear and detailed.
I hope it’s ok that I hold onto your details to refer to clients who may need assistance.

Rapid Loan Repayments

Relatively small additional repayments can have a dramatic effect in reducing the term of your loan. On an average $300,000 loan with an interest rate of 5% pa, additional repayments will fully clear the loan as follows:

$ Repayments pm Term of Loan
1610 30 years
1754 25 years
1980 20 years
2372 15 years
3182 10 years

Loans can also be paid off quicker using other additional techniques:

  • direct credit of your full salaries straight into your loan account and access minimum funds using redraw facility
  • pay for monthly living expenses using a credit card, then fully repay the card balance at the end of each month
  • make weekly repayments instead of monthly repayments
  • pay occasional lump sums straight off the loan balance e.g. gifts, tax refunds and proceeds from asset sales
  • if interest rates fall, leave your repayments at the higher level
  • as your salaries increase, make voluntary higher weekly repayments

Using all the above strategies, it is possible to fully repay your loan in 10 years.

As a financial planner looking after my own clients, it is essential that any service, any advice and any assistance provided to my clients is of superior value, professionalism and attention to detail. It is very important for our business to ensure that our clients are well looked after, all their needs are taken into consideration and service is provided in a timely and efficient manner. This is exactly the type of service, advice and assistance that my clients received when dealing with Barry LeBrocq.
Barry took time to understand my client’s needs, recommended solution that was specifically designed for the particular case. All applications and documents were submitted in a timely manner and the follow-up was fantastic. My clients (and myself) were informed every step of the way, so there were no nasty surprises. Great job Barry, thank you for looking after my clients with such care and attention.

Hi Barry, Thanks so much. Just want to take a moment to say thanks so much for the help you’ve given me over the last year. I really appreciate your patience while I found the right property and your diligence in following up / getting back to me quickly. I really couldn’t have asked for a smoother process. If/when I have any friends or family looking for finance I will absolutely send them your way!! Thanks again.

Thank you for your professionalism, your ability to filter the market of providers to suit our needs, just brilliant. We will, and have in the past, shared your contact details to friends need to review their options. Thanks again.
Joel and Sarah Read


We decided to build our first home together just after getting married and Barry was outstanding. He found the best construction loan for us and gave us great advice on doing fortnightly or weekly repayments to pay less interest. We couldn’t be happier with Barry’s friendly manner and professional approach.
Nathen and Caren Gibson

Thanks for your efforts, Barry. If I do have any friends or family needing assistance I would not hesitate in recommending your services. Thanks again for your assistance and making the transition hassle free.

We have found Barry Le Brocq of Melbourne Mortgage Finance to be very patient, caring and diligent in achieving a successful outcome to our refinancing requirement. We were introduced to Barry by an associate and we would also have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.
Don & Christine Perrett
Leongatha VICTORIA


Being a first home buyer I was glad to choose Barry as my broker. He organised everything and took a lot of the stress out of the entire process of securing and financing the land purchase. Not only did he find the most appropriate bank loan for my needs but his communication and service was prompt with me and also with my conveyancer. Barry made the entire process that seemed daunting for a first home buyer straightforward. I’ll be requesting his services again soon for the next part of the dream…. the construction financing.
Andrew Yong


Barry Le Brocq, of Melbourne Mortgage Finance, organised a home loan for our daughter. He did this promptly and professionally, achieving the lowest possible rate. He prepared all the paperwork, spending time with her to ensure that she fully understood the commitments she was making, and ensuring that the minimum effort was required by her.
Because of the excellent service he provided to our daughter, we recently engaged his services to refinance our investment loan. Once again, his service was outstanding. He prepared all the paperwork, pushed the loan through in amazingly quick time and saved us more that .6 percent on the previous loan we had through a major bank, which could not compete with the rates that Barry achieved. Barry charged us no fees for his excellent service and prompt service. Apart from being an excellent broker, he is also friend who is helpful and approachable.
Margaret & Edward Slater


We were referred to Barry by close friends of ours who were very impressed with his service! Barry didn’t disappoint – we found our dream home un-expectedly and needed finance quickly. From beginning till end his service was fantastic, we had a such a small time frame to take in a lot of new information. We felt very supported & informed. He ensured everything ran smoothly. We’ll be recommending friends and family to him in the future. Thank you Barry!
Lachie Dixon & Melissa Lee


I can’t recommend Barry highly enough. Moving over from the UK I had no idea about the process of buying a property in Australia. Barry came to my place of work as it was more convenient for me. After I had bought a property off plan that was due to be completed in 2 years, he talked me through the whole mortgage process and the options available to me with different mortgage providers and what the best deal for me was likely to be.
During the 2 year build Barry kept in regular contact updating me on interest rates and mortgages available. Once my property was nearing completion Barry came to my home, talked me through all the paperwork and documents required making the whole buying process stress free and easy and I knew I was getting the best mortgage loan available.I would recommend Barry to anyone and, in fact, I’m working again with Barry to purchase an investment property this time.
Neil Ainsworth


As first home buyers, the whole process of buying a house was very daunting. We did not realise that the process and forms you needed to review would be so stressful.
We were referred to Barry by our Accountant. From day one and even after settlement, Barry has helped us through every step. He would visit to our home, sit around the kitchen table, go through all of our options and explain them to us in plain English. Any questions or concerns we had along the way Barry assisted with each and every one of them. Once we had found the home we wanted, Barry also helped us with financial documents required for the conveyancer and also liaised with him. We will recommend Barry to our friends and family in a heart beat….thank you Barry for being with us for the whole process, we really appreciated it.
Adam Wells


When my partner and I first started thinking of buying our first home we were unsure where to start. A quick phone call to Barry and an appointment was made. Barry came to our house and gave us all the information we required and more… we had plenty of questions being first home buyers. It took us a little longer than expected to purchase, but Barry was in constant contact and was always at the other end of the phone to help with any query we had. Finally, when we found our perfect house, Barry was always on call to help us with any hiccup we ran into. I also remember calling Barry one day when our settlement was delayed and he was out bushwalking. He was happy to take my call, and nothing was ever too much for him.
If we ever need anything in the future, Barry will be our first call.
Emmily and Troy
Frankston VICTORIA


When I made known to some of my colleagues that my fiancée and I were looking into buying our first home, a colleague of mine recommended Barry to me. Barry was wonderful to deal with, and was ever helpful when we had a million and one queries (as all first home owners would!). His ability to explain in simple layman terms about the legalities behind it helped us greatly in deciding on purchasing a place that was well within our means. Barry was also able to liaise directly with the lenders on our behalf, which was important for the both of us as we were very busy with our work at that moment in time. If we had to go through the process of buying a house again, we will definitely be contact Barry again. Thank you for every thing Barry!
Terrence Simon
Bentleigh VICTORIA


Thank you Barry for the professional manner in which you have assisted my client to complete the purchase of her investment apartment. I know she has appreciated this, as she has commented so to me and I thought I would pass this on to you. Whilst I don’t have frequent loan enquiries, I certainly will refer future enquiries to you.
Alan Morey, Financial Adviser
Canterbury VICTORIA


Thank you very much for the service you provided us regarding the refinance of our home loan. All went well and smoothly with no problems. We are happy with the new loan arrangement. Once again, thank you very much for your assistance.
Bala Krishna
Cranbourne VICTORIA


Barry recently helped navigate me through the complexities of applying for a reverse mortgage. His knowledge, professionalism and caring manner made the whole exercise far less daunting than anticipated. Barry was quick to respond to my many questions, even over Christmas and the holiday period! At every step of the way his support and patience were unwavering. Barry has offered to make contact every few months to see that everything is operating correctly and has made me welcome to call him if I have any concerns. I could not have wished for a better service.
Adrienne Anstee
Ashburton VICTORIA


I am a first home buyer and Barry has done an excellent job in making this stressful process smooth and manageable. He’s professional, knowledgeable and very patient with all my questions!! If anyone is looking for a reliable broker who will make your life easier, then don’t hesitate to contact Barry. Thanks again for all your help.
Lawrence Zhu
Mooroolbark, VICTORIA


We would like to thank Barry for his assistance in refinancing our home loan and securing 2 investment loans. He kept us updated with progress throughout, and his knowledge and professionalism made the whole process relatively simple. We would have no hesitation in recommending Barry to anyone else looking for finance.
Anthony & Wendy Bergin


Barry’s friendly service was great, especially providing comfort when refinancing to do a major renovation on our house. His knowledge and experience were very beneficial.
Nick Simpson


We were both extremly happy with the service from Barry…. he always kept us up to date and was very prompt in replying to calls and resolving any issues that arose. We would certainly recommend Barry to anyone who is applying for a loan. Thanks again.
Grace Harmes and Chris Simsir


I have had the pleasure of working with Barry in the financing of three properties, and each time my partner and I have been impressed with his professionalism, politeness, and industry knowledge. Barry is a true gentleman who in our numerous dealings with him has acted above and beyond expectations. He has made the complex process of financing our properties a worry-free experience. We will certainly be calling upon Barry again for his assistance. Our thanks.
Belinda Freeman and Jason Hiddlestone
Blind Bight VICTORIA


Thank you for all your time and support you have given us. You have really helped Sean and me every step of the way, making the purchase of our home stress free. We are now settled in and ready to begin our life in our new house. Buying your first home is a scary step, all these forms and processes we were unaware of, but thanks to your constant support we never felt out of our depth.
Barry helped us right through the loan process and we were now able to focus on the enjoyment of the purchase of our home.
Amy Bisset


I really enjoyed working with Barry. His wealth of experience and knowledge in the financial industry was evident and I trusted and greatly valued his advice in navigating the process and making sense of all the loans and products available from each of the banks. I was thoroughly impressed with Barry’s attention to detail and on hand support in filling out each of the forms prior to lodging the application. Barry was always very professional and prompt in following up any matter and ensured that I was well informed of the progress at every stage of the application. He was extremely flexible in his availability to meet after work which was wonderful and much appreciated. I would gladly recommend his services to anyone. Thanks again for all your support.
Kate Wilson


Hi Barry, We wanted to say a very big thank you for all the work you put into having our loan approved. Ours was different to the norm where we had our home under vendor finance and, even though we were paying it as ours, unfortunately the banks did not see it that way and the doors were just shutting in our face whenever it was mentioned.
You worked tirelessly on our behalf to have our home refinanced with the best deal that you could find. You kept us informed every step of the way and always worked with us to obtain anything we needed for the application. Your professionalism and knowledge of the business is second to none. Without your help we would still be under vendor finance. I would certainly be recommending you to anyone who requires a home loan. Thank you very much.
Darren & Chris
Cranbourne VICTORIA


Thanks Barry. The reassurance we got from you, the folk @ Heartland, and our lawyer is great. We live in peace because of your guidance.
Kenneth Innes-Irons

If anybody is looking for mortgage loan advice, give Barry a call. We have just done business with him and were very happy with the service he gave us. Very helpful and obliging. Thank you.
Faye Nicol


When my colleague wanted a Reverse Mortgage we circulated many brokers and banks in NSW. None responded. Barry replied within a few hours and was able to advise and to assist in the entire process. Barry went well out of his way to keep us informed on progress, to chase up delays direct with our solicitor who went to sleep, to make and take numerous phone calls well beyond normal expectations. Emails always received same-day reply, with detailed explanation and advice. We would thoroughly recommend Barry to anyone seeking a reliable, efficient and helpful mortgage broker.
Ken Stratton
Shell Cove NSW


Having recently refinanced my home loan through Barry LeBrocq at Melbourne Mortgage Finance, I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the level of service I received and pass on my positive impressions.
From the outset Barry acted in a manner that would give any potential client confidence that they were in the best of hands, and I was impressed by his very thorough work ethic. Barry takes no short cuts and leaves no stone unturned, and I will certainly have no hesitation in referring him on to other people with the assurance that they will get the service and advice they deserve. Throughout the whole process of getting my finance approved Barry was personable, professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful in making this stressful process seem so easy. Thanks again for all your hard work and for your outstanding service.
Kate Padley


Barry has been a great help since the day I first called. Visiting my house, Barry explained everything I needed to know and more. I was able to contact Barry at any time and ask any question, silly or not. Barry helped make buying my first house a great experience. Thanks again Barry.
Tara March


I have recently purchased my first home with Barry’s help. After approaching a mobile banker from my own bank, I was disappointed with the lack of service and help. I was then referred to Melbourne Mortgage Finance. Barry actioned all of my needs immediately, met necessary time frames and followed the transaction through to settlement for me. As a first home owner, it was a very daunting experience, but the whole process was conducted smoothly, efficiently and he helped me understand my financial situation. With Barry’s professional guidance, I was still able to use my own bank. Thank you for your brilliant help!
Benton Smith
Narre Warren VICTORIA


Barry provided a service that was second to none for my 75 year old mother’s Reverse Mortgage. He was extremely thorough in his explanation of services, fees and relevant products. I have no hesitation in saying that Barry is a seasoned professional who truly knows his trade…..we couldn’t be happier.
David Owen


“We were extremely impressed with the professional service provided by Barry. He was knowledgeable, prompt and courteous in all our dealings. His attention to detail was most appreciated and the whole process was smooth and efficient.”
Many thanks again
Ian & Andrea Wilson
Wheelers Hill VICTORIA


We would like to thank you for all your hard work and persistence in helping us achieve our dream of buying our first home. We first contacted you sixteen months ago and had nearly no hope of getting a home loan in the financial situation we were in at the time. Other brokers were not interested in us and told us to call them back in a years time, but you took the time to listen to our situation. You were only too happy to help us and you always had time to answer our questions, no matter how small. With your continual follow up, support and professional advice, you assisted us with staying on track (with our financial targets), to be in a great position to obtain a home loan. We couldn’t have done it without you! Also during the whole buying process you kept us up to date with the loan approval process, right through to the end. You were fantastic and we highly recommend you to all our family and friends. In fact you are assisting my cousin right now. You were a total pleasure to deal with and you genuinely cared about helping us achieve our dream.
Thank you! Hope to have you over soon to see our home as soon as we are settled in.
Cosmin and Tracey


Barry, thank you so much for all your help from pre-approval to settlement . You made a very daunting process seem all the more manageable. I knew you were always only a phone call away and ready to answer my many questions. I would definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Thanks again for all your assistance.
Daniela Salvo
Dandenong VICTORIA


Barry, thank you so much for all your help from start to finish. You made the process extremely easy for me considering that I had no idea what I was getting myself into, as this was my first property purchase. I appreciate how readily available you made yourself to answer my questions whether it be over the phone or by email. I will be definitely recommending your services to any of my friends or family. Once again Barry, thank you..
Adam Bonaddio
Wheelers Hill VICTORIA


Barry has proven himself as an incredibly competent and knowledgeable broker. He performed above and beyond expectations in what was a complicated mortgage application, and made the process straightforward and as comfortable as possible. My family and I owe a great deal to Barry’s professionalism and patience. Again THANK YOU.

Hi Barry. Thank you for your assistance with our home loan application and your swift response to our needs. Your services were greatly appreciated and we would highly recommend you to future clients. We look forward to working with you in the future regarding all our finance needs.

I was very fortunate in being introduced to Barry Le Brocq, as he provided me with sound and professional financial advice. He was always readily available to contact and capable of answering ALL the questions I threw at him (and there were many!!!).  Thanks again for your help
Anne-Marie Mikhail
Dandenong North VICTORIA


We have recently had dealings with Barry LeBrocq through Melbourne Mortgage Finance in arranging construction finance for our new house. We would have no hesitation in recommending Barry to anyone requiring the services of a mortgage broker. Barry’s knowledge was good and all queries were promptly answered. Once finance was organised, there were follow-up calls to make sure everything was progressing smoothly. Even after making our third progress payment to the builder, Barry still rang to see if everything was going smoothly.
Les & Sandra Douglass
Cranbourne VICTORIA


Hello Barry, Thank you very much for all your help in getting the loan, in fact two loans. You selected the right package and you made us feel as if we are your only customers. We appreciate your following up on every aspect of document collection and completion of all necessary documentation in order to get loan approval without delays. Thank you for keeping us informed every step of the way and explaining the many issues that we avoided thanks to your expertise and commitment to succeed the first time. Thank you again and kindest regards,
Jerzy & Guner Gregorczyk


Being first home buyers, the process of finding the right mortgage and lender was a very daunting prospect. We were recommended the services of Barry Le Brocq from Melbourne Mortgage Finance. Barry made himself available at times that suited us and explained our options in an easy to understand fashion. From our initial meeting all the way through the application and settlement process, and even once we had moved into our home, Barry was always happy to help. He was available to answer any questions we had and ensured we were comfortable with every aspect of our new lender and mortgage. It is no exaggeration to say that without Barry we couldn’t have done this ourselves. We would highly recommend utilizing his services to take the stress and pressure out of finding and applying for a home loan. Thank you Barry!
Shane Ferguson & Kara Rasmanis


Hi Barry, I am normally a very busy person and do not have much time to search through various finance organizations to find out which one could offer me best finance options.With your help, I was able to do just that within the comfort of my home. We accessed many different options easily by utilizing your computer tools and comparing them to decide which one would suit me best. But my appreciation did not stop there. After locating the right finance for me, you followed up all the steps leading up to the settlement, reminding me some steps that I forgot to follow. You also had a discussion with my financing organization and convinced them to waive the early payment fee of my existing loan (which saved me $700). It was your professionalism, attention to detail, and very friendly manners that helped the whole process turn into an easy and manageable experience for us. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is in the process of buying a property and trying to arrange suitable finance. Thanks again for your excellent support and the time you dedicated to us.
Mesut Tufan

The purchase of our first home was made possible thanks to Barry and his hard work. Purchasing your first home can be quite daunting, however Barry explained the whole process thoroughly (and many times) to ensure we were well educated and equipped to handle all that came with this process. He was always available to help with any enquiries and promptly addressed any issues that arose. Everything was completed in a timely manner and with great diligence. We are now living the great Australian dream thanks to all his hard work!!!
Craig and Pauline
Cranbourne North VICTORIA


Barry was very prompt in getting back to me after my initial website enquiry about a reverse mortgage. I was acting on behalf of my aged father in trying to secure a loan to pay an aged care facility accommodation bond. I found Barry to be very knowledgeable in the subject of reverse mortgages,and prompt in his follow up of my subsequent enquiries once I decided to apply for the Bankwest product. Barry made sure I understood all the detail of the loan and advised all the documentation and processes required to ensure prompt loan approval and settlement.
Kevin Greaney


Dear Barry. I would just like to say thank you, for all you help in assisting myself with my recent purchase of my investment property. As you were referred to me by a family member, who uses your service with his own clients, I was confident in your experience from the start however, was absolutely impressed with your knowledge, reliability, service, promptness, communication and advice I experienced myself. Thank you once again and I would have no hesitation to refer you to family and friends in the future.
Matt Turner


We would recommend Barry LeBrocq for your mortgage finances as we found him to be very helpful, efficient and professional setting up our required loan.
Thank you Barry.
John & Helen Waters
Hampton Park VICTORIA


We were extremely pleased with the mortgage broking service that Barry provided. This was our first property which meant we did not have much experience with loans and all the processes involved. Barry was very thorough in explaining all the details of the loan and sat with us to complete all the final loan documents which the bank sent us. Barry was very organised and always followed up with phone calls and emails and made himself available for after hours appointments. We would recommend Barry’s financial and loan services to anyone.
John Hsieh and Julia Huynh


Dear Barry, I am so pleased you enjoyed your game of Golf at Patterson River. As you know it was to show our appreciation for your excellent service and assistance, given to establish the Reverse Mortgage Loan against our property. It was nice to receive some Good Old Fashioned Service with a smile.
Bruce & Louise McDonough
Wheelers Hill VICTORIA


Barry did a superb job at finding us a mortgage loan for our new home. We’d just been turned down by one of the major banks and Barry helped us find a lender who could help us. He was always on call, knew all of the pitfalls and gave constant, professional and personal assistance through the whole process. We were up the creek without a paddle and Barry gave us the help we needed.
Damian Perry
Pascoe Vale VICTORIA


Hello Barry. I have just returned from the bank, and everything is now organised and under control.
Thank you so much for being so available, and so willing to give wise advice. I could not have gone through this experience without you. My funds will be available for access by Thursday, and the credit card will be the first victim!!!
Adrienne Holzer


After recently being introduced to Barry Le Brocq through our Real Estate Agent, we were ‘blown away’ by the services he provided to us. Most importantly he took his time and walked us through a step by step process in regards not only to the finance but the whole purchase procedure. We found this thorough approach gave us confidence and reduced stress. We would have no hesitations in recommending Barry’s services to any prospective client. He offered us competitive rates, after hours service and “called us” to confirm every event as it happened.
Thank you Barry for a seamless transaction, together with all of your help and support you gave us along the way.
Laurie & Ella Smith


Thank you Barry. I found you via Grants Real estate when I was looking for a house to call my own. You have been very courteous,helpful & prompt in your service all along,thanks heaps. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who requires help with their loan application. Wishing that you are happy, healthy & prosperous always.
Dr Lee


Thankyou, Barry, for your help and guidance re our loan. Your knowledge, service and communication with us were all very good. We would have no qualms in recommending you to family and friends.
Ted and Lorraine Fairweather


Barry was efficient in all his service to us…..prompt, reliable and clear in his explanation of the loan conditions. I worked in banking for 40 years and I can assure anyone that Barry has extensive knowledge of mortgage matters and was most helpful to us in our transaction. I recommend Barry to anyone who needs financial assistance.
Ken Fewster OAM


We were extremely impressed with the professional service provided by Barry LeBrocq. He has been there guiding us through the whole process step by step. If we ever required assistance he was always there to help in any way. This is what I call service. Many thanks

We would both like to thank you for your advice, assistance and the attention you have paid to each stage of this transaction in such an efficient and friendly manner. It has been a pleasure to deal with you.
Barbara & Clive Sharplin

A warm thank you Barry for your total professionalism and outstanding follow-up service!! Being a resident overseas, and with a limited time in the country, your attention to detail, advice and experience really made the difference. Your hard work, and continuous up date of my special case left me with little to do except enjoy my holiday. I really appreciate the updates via e-mail and the phone calls made on my behalf while I was back in Europe. Once again many thanks
Angelos Chaitas, Businessman

I would like to state that we found your services prompt, reliable and very helpful. As this was our first home, we found your advice at every step very beneficial. Ashish and I really appreciated the fact that, when the settlement took place, though you were away on holiday, you kept abreast of the developments via email and guided us. Your contribution before, after and throughout the process was invaluable. We have saved your thoughtful gift for a special occasion. Thank you once again.

I really enjoyed working with Barry as his knowledge of the industry was comprehensive and he certainly simplified the complexities of selecting a competitive home loan rate. His approach was professional and friendly and I was extremely impressed with his attention to detail and reliable work ethic. He regularly communicated with my brother and I and the loan providers regarding loan documentation to see if there were any issues and have them resolved. Thanks again for all your help

Barry LeBrocq regularly involves me in his client mortgage applications. Not only is Barry thorough in knowing his product and the lenders requirements but his clients are well informed. He gives them all the information they seek and has answered all their questions leaving me very little to do. Barry’s professional caring approach makes the whole transaction seamless for the clients. I would happily recommend his services to any of my clients seeking this type of loan facility.

I have known Barry Le Brocq for approximately fifteen years from his Westpac days to now. From time to time I have referred clients, friends and acquaintances to Barry for home lending advice and home loan procurement. Without exception each person has received competent advice and where able has received the most suitable loan for their purpose. Barry’s experience and communication skills are second to none and the feedback from my referrals continually testify to that.

While arranging our first home loan, Melbourne Mortgage Finance provided us with a professional service that was reliable and friendly. They explained all possible options, information and processes in a way that was easily understood, including grants that we were eligible for. Melbourne Mortgage Finance kept us informed throughout every step and process and were only too happy to answer our questions. We felt completely at ease knowing Melbourne Mortgage Finance had our best interest at heart.

“We were very impressed with the thoroughness of Barry’s services, guiding us through the process step by step, made the arduous task of buying our first home a lot easier and stress free.”
Stephen Grantham
Wheelers Hill VICTORIA


Barry has been fantastic from the first contact right through to the settlement of our first home. After thinking we would never own our own home Barry was quick, professional, friendly and always called when he said he would!! Both myself and my partner would recommend Barry to anyone wanting to purchase a home, as if it were not for him we would not have had the chance to do so.
Ella Woodward


Hi Barry I was extremely satisfied with the thoroughness you displayed when handling the Grantham matter. You went out of your way to make sure their loan was handled as efficiently as possible. I can recommend you as a Mortgage Broker.
Frank Jackson, Solicitor
Glen Huntly VICTORIA


If I could use one word to describe Barry it would be ‘”professional”! When I was told about the services Barry had to offer I had no idea how much of a helping hand he would be. Going in to buy your first home is stressful enough and having Barry as my mortgage broker was hassle free. Barry frequently kept me up to date and was there when I needed him, even when he was on holidays. I recommend him to anyone who tells me they are thinking of buying a house. Would not have survived without him.
Clair Tonkin


This testimonial is a sincere “thank you” to Barry for his outstanding service in providing a loan to our family member. Barry’s knowledge of the loan product was sensational. He at all times was understanding of our needs and time frames, and always treated the family with the utmost respect. His communication was excellent and was always available to answer any questions during this process. He was also available for a home visit which was essential due to the elderly family member requiring assistance.
Our family would highly recommend Barry to anyone seeking a knowledgeable professional in loan services.

The smart way to get a better mortgage

The smart way to get a better mortage

Whenever you use a PLAN member, you should expect to receive :

A wide range of loans from the top lending institutions
The services of an experienced and accredited Mortgage Broker
Independent advice

A better deal

Your mortgage is probably going to be the biggest expense that you will ever have, so you need to make the best decisions. Who will you entrust your financial future to? A web site? A lender with only their own product? Perhaps a franchise operator?

But what if you could be advised by someone who has years of experience in the mortgage business and earned it? What if this person was accredited, independent and could help you choose a loan that is right for you ?

You would then be thinking about an accredited PLAN member. It makes sense to use an expert, a professional.

Every PLAN member is accredited, experienced and is committed to providing the best possible mortgage solution designed for you. PLAN members are able to give you the benefit of choosing from a wide range of loans from the top lending institutions in Australia .
