Why Lockhart Mortgages?

WHY CHOOSE A MORTGAGE BROKER INSTEAD OF USING A BANK?

If you go direct to your Bank, they may offer you their best rate or they may not. They definitely won’t tell you that another bank down the road is offering a better rate for a similar product.

A Lockhart Mortgages broker has access to all Banks discounted lending rates. Often the rates we can get from your Bank are cheaper than if you approached them yourself. We also ensure that you get the maximum cash contribution possible from the Banks for your new loan.

A Lockhart Mortgages broker has access to major Banks, Credit Unions, Finance Companies and other mortgage lenders. With such a wide range of product offerings, our brokers are better positioned to match available products with our clients’ specific needs.

A Lockhart Mortgages broker provides superior service over Banks by not only making themselves available outside normal business hours, but also by personally following up with our clients throughout the application process and providing support and advice through the life of your loan. We provide regular updates on the finance market and negotiate the best possible rate with your bank each time your loans are renewed.

“Greg has worked with us on 4 successful mortgage applications in the last couple of years, ranging from the strictly conventional; to some far more creative deals. We hope he does more in the near future. His industry knowledge and professionalism make him an invaluable member of our team, Greg has a high degree of technical proficiency, communicates well, works tirelessly, and ultimately, gets deals approved. Which is all you can ask really. I highly recommend Lockhart Mortgages.”

Dave Hall – Property Investor

“We were very pleased with the help we received from Greg. Friendly and easy to work with, he took time to learn about us and what we needed.He gave us good advice on what was possible, and was very patient with all our questions. When it came time to buy, he made sure everything was organised and easy so we didn’t get too stressed about the paperwork. Best of all, we also got a good deal.”

Quentin & Michael – First Home Buyers

“I can honestly say Greg Lockhart made our first home buying experience a very pleasant one. From our first conversation Greg explained each and every option that was available to us, as well as finance strategy, and we never felt pressured into any decision. Our phone calls and emails were handled in a professional and timely manner. All in all I really couldn’t imagine our home buying process being any easier. Even now that the deal is done we would still feel 100% comfortable calling Greg with any questions. He extended his expertise beyond the scope of the mortgage deal and we look forward to contacting Greg for our future finance need. Thanks for everything Greg!”

“We bought our first house using Greg’s mortgage brokering services. He guided and supported us all the way through the loan application process; always there to answer our questions and making us feel at ease. We both are very thankful for Greg’s hard work and help. A true professional.”

Aiden & Amy – First Home Buyers

“David and I moved into our lovely new home in Panmure this past Friday, June 1st (bye, bye 2-4 hours of driving every day,
depending on brutal traffic!!!!). Every single aspect of this move that was dependent on another professional could not have gone ANY smoother, and we have Greg to thank for this. From coming out to us in Tuakau when we initially wanted to know our options, being so patient and explaining to us in really encouraging terms how we could make it work financially with bubba coming (without going broke!!).

To truly getting us the best rates possible with as much cash contribution as he could squeeze out of the bank, and making sure it was all done in a timely manner.

Working with Greg, was SO incredible he also sorted out our finances really early with the banks so that we were able to put our offer down on our house with NO condition on finances, thereby strengthening our offer in a multi-offer situation!”

Aria & David McCormick – First Home Buyers

“We had an unexpected opportunity to buy a house this year, so came into the process with low expectations.  Greg provided the right amount of information to open our eyes to what was possible without drowning us in research at a time that was already pressured.

Greg’s wealth of industry knowledge and excellent mortgage arrangement solutions not only made us feel informed, but completely at ease that we were doing the right thing – in a smart way.  Our lawyer was even impressed at how he was setting our mortgage up for us.

He’s pro-active, responsive to barrages of questions, and goes the extra mile to ensure you have all the options available to you.

Who knew when this year began that we’d be sitting here typing this email from our own home right now?  I really feel that Greg was the catalyst in making it possible.

I now encourage anyone I can to check out the possibilities – it might be achievable sooner than you think, and if anyone can make it work for you, Greg will.”
