    "The idea of buying our first home was quite daunting but we found the process to be relatively stress free thanks to Greg's great advice and guidance every step of the way. We really appreciated his friendly and approachable manner. I'm sure we are in a much better position with our home loan than we would have been had we chosen to negotiate with the banks ourselves. We will definitely be recommending The Home Loan Shop to our friends! " – 7th Nov More details…

    "Greg Scott (and the home loan shop team) went above and beyond what I expected from them. Their customer service is outstanding and they are excellent at their job. This is the second time I have used them and will do again in the future when I need to. They secured us the best deal I think you could possibly get and I would advise anyone who is buying (or thinking of buying) a house to contact them first. You will not find a more dedicated team or get a better deal anywhere else..........." – 5th Oct, 2011 More details…

    "I couldnt say enough good things about Martin and the team at the Home Loan shop. Having had issues with BNZ and Kiwibank, we decided to try a mortgage broker instead. The Home Loan shop was recommended by a work colleague and we were really pleased with how things worked out. As first home buyers we found Martin approachable, friendly, professional and reassuring. Will be passing their details on to anyone who I hear is in the market for a mortgage. Thanks to all the team at the Home Loan…" – 14th Mar, 2011 More details…

    "We had availed Home Loan Shop\'s service in mid 2010. We primarily dealt with Martin Duncan and the office admin and recall that we received first rate service from them at all times be it a follow up on the documents, or the next step to take. There were times when we were lost in the procedures being first time buyers. Martin proactively guided us through simple 1-2-3 steps, and with the right advice. We were quite eager to listen to our trusted adviser\'s view points each time we…" – 10th Mar, 2011 More details…

    "I thought Martin Duncan was great. He offered very good advice and saved me alot of time by not having to wade though all the mortgage providers. As it\'s my first property purchase it was reassuring speaking to someone who clearly knew what they were doing and took the time and effort to make sure that any queries that i had were answered promptly. It can be quite a scary process for a first time buyer, so i would definately recommend Martin to help you though the process." – 10th Mar, 2011 More details…

I would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing property. " – 28th Feb, 2011 More details…

    "My partner and I struggled to get finance for our first home, despite both earning good incomes we didn\'t have much of a deposit or a \'savings history\'. We had found a house we liked but noone would lend us the full amount we needed. On a whim we walked into The Home Loan Shop and made an appointment to see Martin. He listened to our story and gave it to us straight. It wasn\'t going to be easy but if we really wanted the house he\'d make it happen. The next couple of weeks we were in daily…" – 19th Feb, 2011 More details…

Our lending criteria did not fit the usual boxes however they were able to secure our loan at a very competitive rate. Our mortgage finance deal was better than our bank of 22 years could achieve! The pro's and cons of fixed or floating mortgages and the tax advantages were discussed with us in detail which enabled us to make an informed and…" – 3rd Dec, 2008 More details…

We were very clueless about the purchasing process, and over several meetings and many phone calls Laurie has been able to help us make informed decisions the whole way through as well as getting us a brilliant mortgage package.
