What our clients say

Joel and Melissa are first home buyers with the help and support from Simon at Finance For Living.

“Simon was brilliant, just really patient, took his time to explain my options,suggest a couple of things to look into. And I was still a year away from buying but he was just, he took his time to really set things out for me and make it really clear.”

Finance for Living Mortgage Brokers were able to help Glenyce with refinancing her loan and saved her enough for a holiday to Bali.

“At the time I sort of thought oh just let me know what you can do with this and saving ended up being something like the amount that would be a nice trip to Bali for a couple of people so I was pretty impressed with that.”

Finance for Living client Ping Chew talks about her experience working with Simon O’Kelly.

“when I found out that Simon could actually do everything for me and really show me how I could compare…I thought, this is perfect. It would just make things so easy, save me time and get the best deal.

Being a first home buyer and someone who DOESN’T have a high attention to detail, the prospect of finding a bank and getting approved for a loan seemed totally overwhelming. However, once I was introduced to Simon, it all seemed so easy! From the outset, Simon and Claire were thorough, professional, expert and experienced in their advice. Simon took the time to understand me, my financial position and my goals. He also helped ME understand finance. Which is no small undertaking. There wound up being a number of hoops we had to jump through, but Simon remained patient and persevered calmly throughout the process and found solutions to what seemed like endless problems. I can honestly say I wouldn’t have been able to become a homeowner without his guidance and expertise. I can’t recommend Simon and his team more highly. THANK YOU!

I have recently purchased my first home which wouldn’t have been possible without Simon’s expert assistance with selecting and organising an appropriate Mortgage. Simon is extremely knowledgeable and was readily available and willing to help with my multitude of questions. He made a stressful process streamlined and comfortable and I will be forever grateful to him for enabling me to purchase my first property with such ease.
Brock Conley
Simon was excellent to work with. He listened to our needs and helped us. He is professional and takes the time to explain each of his recommendations clearly. I highly recommend his services.
Chareen Rushworth
I will always scream from the roof tops about customer service!! Especially if it is a brilliant experience…One of the most exciting times in our lives is buying a house and one of the less exciting tasks is looking for a loan and ensuring we have the best rate and the best advice. In my case I was looking to save some dollars on my existing loan without the process being too painful and taking up too much time. I had a big win with Simon O’Kelly. A simple process and a terrific outcome which give me additional dollars in my pocket and I can sleep easy knowing I am not being ripped off and I have additional funds for a sizable contribution towards a holiday!! Thanks heaps Simon, cannot rave enough about your simple and professional process.
Glenyce Johnson
Simon was highly recommended to me and wow is all that I can say about the amazing service he provides to his clients. Nothing is too much bother for Simon from offering to follow-up on emails to conveyancers, to arranging to meet with you at a time and location that fits in with you. He is such a genuine, person-centred individual who works tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for you and to create a stress-free process for you in negotiating your mortgage. Hesitate no longer, contact Simon to be your mortgage broker.
Jenny Weller
Simon was an absolute godsend! Extremely knowledgeable, very patient, no sales tactics, just a genuinely nice guy helping out. We had a few issues with our conveyancer (not the one recommended by Simon, which was our mistake), and he stepped in and fixed everything. We cannot recommend Simon enough, and already have family and friends who have also made use of Simon’s service. Now stop reading these reviews, and give the man a call!
Joel Vermaas
Too bad there’s only 5 stars! Sensational service from beginning to end.
Lyle Consul
This is to recommend Simon O’Kelly in the highest possible regards. I have had the pleasure of Simon recently refinancing my home loans so that I could withdraw money to invest in my business. Having only started my business in May and due to decreasing my hours in my paid employment the numbers were tight due to the bank not initially wishing to recognize revenue from the business. Simon had plan A and plan B but I knew that only plan A was required as I trusted that Simon would navigate the system with ease and professionalism as he did. Not for one moment did I feel anxious or fear that I wouldn’t receive the desired increase on my loans. I have had interactions with mortgage brokers in the past and Simon is a standout due to his passion and commitment to gaining the desired outcomes. He is always a step ahead of the banks which allows a tedious process to be contacted in a timely manner. Simon and his team are the best!! Thank you so much.
Melonie Taylor
Simon’s service was fantastic! He was professional, knowledgeable, and more than happy to take the time to fully explain all available options. After the issues we’ve had in the past not receiving the service and assistance we’ve desired from the banks, Simon was a revelation!!. Can not recommend him highly enough!
Paul Coventry
I used Simon O’Kelly for reviewing my loans and getting new loans. Simon has an amazing understanding of client needs and he always delivers over and beyond the expectations. Anything is possible when Simon is on your side! I would recommend Simon for any loan matters!
Sanjeev Gill
I completely agree with Skye – outstanding support and assistance with buying my first home. I cannot recommend Simon highly enough. Not one negative thing to say – simply extraordinary service, patience, attention to detail, follow-up to make sure everything was running smoothly, and so available whenever I needed him. 5/5
Shelley Cook
Our friends recommended Simon to help us with our home loan – we’re first time buyers and he really helped us to understand the whole process and was happy to help out with the endless questions we seemed to have. From beginning to end both Simon and Claire made sure our application went through relatively painlessly. We are now homeowners and will be recommending Simon to everyone!
Skye Shoubridge
Thank you Simon for finding and organising the right loan for us. Your professionalism and knowledge in this field made the process so easy and stress-free. We would highly recommend Simon O’Kelly as a mortgage broker to friends and family. Thanks again Simon.
Tania & Wayne McCraw
Simon did a wonderful job getting our application all processed start to finish. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to refinance or take out a new loan.
Tim De Smaele
Simon took the time to find out what my wife and I needed from a home loan. He gave us time to consider the available options and made the process of refinancing a breeze. We were after lower repayments, Simon certainly got us there.
Tom Connor
Our experience with Simon O’Kelly has been invaluable. We had limited time in which to obtain a loan and bad credit issues to deal with. I felt like Simon was holding our hand the entire process as he explained everything to us and continually checked in with us, making us feel entirely comfortable during one of the most stressful times of our lives. We would highly recommend Simon O’Kelly as a broker, and can’t thank him enough for helping us secure a great deal and an amazing house!
