Who We Are

At Finance for Living, we have extensive lending experience and are passionate about customer service.

When it comes to home loans, most people tend to shop around for the best interest rate. On the surface that may seem like the best idea, but what most people don’t realise is that the best interest rate doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best deal to suit your unique requirements, circumstances and goals.

Delivering Award-Winning Customer Service

Passionate in Supporting Our Planet

Finance for Living has been recognised as a leading Sustainable Mortgage Broker in Australia. 

“I had someone say to me once, ‘I wouldn’t have thought there’d be a mortgage broker who cares about the environment"

Simon O’Kelly

Simon has been trained by Al Gore (former Vice President of the USA) and delivered many updated presentations of the 2006 “An Inconvenient Truth” documentary to different groups in the community. We receive many requests from clients to use lenders which do not fund fossil fuels.

Meet Simon

Director & Senior Mortgage Broker

Simon has over 25 years experience in customer service and commercial roles, largely in the travel industry. In 2013, Simon set-up his own business as a mortgage broker so he could help customers finance their dream home or refinance their existing loans. Our team has grown to meet the demand; a key to our business is treating customers as customers for life and being there to help their family and friends as well.

Simon is passionate to find one of the most appropriate lenders for each customer especially when a customer has been told they cannot get a loan.
