Client case study: Sarah, a recent refinancer
Meet Sarah, she’s a Gold Coast professional in her 30s, who just refinanced her home loan. She works hard to ensure a financially comfortable future, still enjoys a weekend brunch opportunity and isn’t afraid to research and shop around for a better deal.
Eager to tap into the record low rates, Sarah asked for assistance from her Gold Coast Mortgage Broker, at Crest.
Sarah shared her experience:
“I didn’t know where to start, but I knew I wanted a good deal. Dion and Natalie at Crest ensured a simple and guided process, answering all of my many questions, and holding my hand the whole way – It was such a nice experience!”
Sarah’s advice to people interested in refinancing their home loan:
- Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions,
- Be sure to stay well-informed of the ins and outs of home loan process, and
- Know exactly what you’re signing up for.
Thankfully, Sarah received all this and more from the helpful Crest Lending team.
“They gave me a highly competitive rate, and I was educated so much about the entire process, from what banks like, my residential lending capacity, budgeting and bettering my finances.”
