A few words from some of our happy clients

Emma and Lalisa - Refinance

“My fiancé and I were looking at refinancing our property, and I immediately knew I wanted Maria and her team’s assistance. I have dealt with many brokers in my line of work, and I can genuinely say that Maria is not only the most efficient, knowledgeable and friendly broker, but also truly cares about you and your situation. Maria kept us informed every step of the way, and made sure we had the best possible deal. Maria and her team are there every step of the way, and take all the stress out of what can be a very stressful time. I truly cannot recommend them highly enough."

Kate and Phil - First Home Buyers

“Maria was recommended to us by a friend and she was absolutely fantastic. She met with us immediately and was extremely efficient and professional in all our dealings. Maria explained the mortgage process to us very clearly, showed us all our options so we could best choose the mortgage that suited our lifestyle, recommended a fantastic lawyer to use and met with us several times to be sure that we were comfortable with the process and what we needed to do. She was wonderful support from start to finish and was always available to answer questions and queries by phone, email and in person. Maria is warm, thoughtful and caring. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides a thorough and complete service. I would not hesitate to recommend Maria."

Sarah and Stuart - First Home Buyers

“We approached Maria for some advice about buying our first home, what our options were and what we could afford. We met with her and we discussed our financial status. She went above and beyond to help us find the right deal that worked for us. There were a few complications along the way with a number of speed bumps for a few different reasons, but each time, she dealt with it professionally and respectfully. She always kept us informed of what was happening, ensured we knew what was going on and offered endless reassurance. Maria and Lisa were an absolute dream to deal with. They showed compassion and kindness from start to finish. We would definitely use them again and I would highly recommend Maria Thackwell Mortgage Company"
