“Best interest rate around and great efficient professional team working for, THEY ARE THE BEST with no hesitation!”

“Hassle free - very straight-forward and uncomplicated to set up. They keep me well informed of rate changes and unlike banks they pass on interest rate reductions straight away.”

“No shop front is no problem and the interest rate is exceptional”

“The flexibility with my loan and combined offset account to easily manage my funds, optimize paying my loan off faster at no cost to myself and knowing that I have one of the best interest rates available with the knowledge that rate cuts will be passed on. have a great product backed by great service.”

“I like the cheap rate and customer service. I always speak to someone who knows the answers to my questions. In my local town if I go in and ask a question to anyone from my previous banks branch no one gives me a straight answer.”

“It had the best rate out there and also all the features that a big-4 would give. Don't even understand why someone would go anywhere else.”

“Great interests rate and tracked against RBA movements for the first 3 years. Rate changes are made effective within 1 or 2 days of the RBA announcement. Much better than my previous lender in all aspects.”

“I most like the low variable interest rate and the fact that the interest rate is linked to what the RBA does for the first 3 years. That is, the RBA cuts have all been passed on in full.”

“Best variable interest rate at 5.08% peg with reserve bank decision and pass the rate cut in FULL for 5 years. It is much better than the big 4 greedy banks who never pass fully the rate cut by Reserve Bank but always pass the rate increase in FULL. Big Banks make billions of $ in profit and yet cry poor !”

“The cheap rate and the great service without pushing other products like the Big Banks do (like life insurance, house insurance, car insurance, super etc etc).”

“The interest is pegged to the cash rate so there is no issue about whether reductions will be passed on or not.”

“Customer service - I was initially concerned about using an online provider but I was assigned a dedicated loans officer and they took me through the whole process quickly and easily”
