The answer is simple: I have gone through the home-buying journey myself and can share my experiences and expertise with all my clients.

Having bought my first property over ten years ago and a few more properties over the years, I have gone through numerous scenarios in the buying-selling process.

I have gone through an open bridge application and a same-day settlement. I know what can go wrong and how stressful it can be.

This is where I make the process as seamless as possible for my clients. The Benchmark service does not stop on the approval of your loan or when we confirm the loan structure to your bank, it is a long-term partnership.

When clients come through looking for funding for renovations or seeking construction funding, I can share my experiences and let them know realistic time frames, costs involved, and what lenders look for as I have been there myself.

The process of doing a house renovation or a construction project can be difficult which is why it is crucial to have the right team behind you.

At Benchmark Mortgages we provide solutions to our customer's problems. We are out-of-the-box mortgage advisors, which is why many of our clients come through to secure specific funding requirements.

When your mortgage comes for renewal this is a very important time financially, why? Because this is an opportunity to review your mortgage and come up with strategies to pay off your loan quicker or free up cash flow.

Fixing your mortgage on the lowest rate is not always the best option, a prime example is during the Covid period interest rates were low as 2.19% for 1 year however there were rates at that time for 3.13% over 5 years, a lot of people would want to rewind the clock and have this choice again looking at the current interest rates.

At Benchmark we look to make recommendations based on clients' short and medium-term goals which will enable to you meet your long-term goals. With the election in October, this is an important time to have a clear strategy for your existing mortgages and future projects.

Give me a call or flick me an email to discuss your mortgage requirements.
