What Our Clients Are Saying

"Marcus guided us through the process expertly, and was always on hand"

Marcus helped us secure our mortgage for our first property in Australia. He was fantastic throughout. As first time buyers he guided us through the process expertly, and was always on hand to answer any and all our questions. We frequently changed our minds in the early stages of the mortgage process, but Marcus always dealt with these changes promptly. I would highly recommend Marcus as a mortgage advisor and will be using in in the future for any mortgage applications and reviews we carry out.

Ben Thompson

"Marcus went above and beyond"

Marcus went above and beyond to find us the right mortgage provider, offering any assistance we needed. He was even able to go back and get a generous rate discount after the initial offer. You won’t find another more helpful and trustworthy mortgage broker. Highly recommended!

James Williams

"Can confidently recommend!"

Gerard Dallow

"Marcus took to explain everything in the simple terms"

Marcus was a great help right from the start at our first meeting it was apparent that Marcus acted in the clients best interest & his advise was based on that and not selling a service. Your first mortgage can be quite daunting and that was all mitigated with the time he took to explain everything in the simple terms that helped me take all the information in. If I ever need another Mortgage or when I require a re-finance Marcus will be the first phone call.

What's the cost of your service?

There is no cost to you, the borrower.

We are paid a small commission by the lender when you receive your home loan.

By using a mortgage broker, you benefit from comparing dozens of lenders and finding the product that best aligns with your unique situation.

This allows you to save on fees and charges that you may otherwise pay if you were to go directly to the lender.

How are you better than my bank?

When you work with Brighter Finance, you can be sure that your loan and structure are align with your best interests.

We aren’t owned directly or indirectly in any way by a bank.

Unlike banks who choose from a narrow suite of their own financial products, we’ll assess over 30 lenders to ensure you have the right fit.

No single bank or lender is recommended in a disproportionate amount. And you will understand why any recommendation is made and why it makes sense for you.
