After “shopping” around we landed on Steven H at the Home Loan Shop. It can be difficult to figure out who to go with and that’s after deciding whether to fly solo or use a broker at all.Glad we did... Steven is fast and responsive, informative and patient, thorough and insightful. His experience, knowledge and awareness of all the tricks and hooks makes a big difference.I’ve already recommended him and the team at HLS but I can’t recommend them more highly. The end to end service, the thoroughness and client care throughout is fantastic. We also used Matt G to help with personal insurances, again a member of the team who knows his stuff and worked hard for what we needed.Everyone says “oh, go see our guy”. Seriously, go see our guy.

As a first home buyer I was a bit nervous and needed some extra support. Steven was so supportive through the process and took time to explain things and reassure me. I would absolutely work with Steven again.

Was recommended Martin through a work colleague and ultimately chose to work with Martin over another broker due to his friendliness and experience. Martin and Pippa were extremely responsive to our many questions as first home buyers, and ultimately when we needed to close the deal helped push the bank to get us over the line. Big thanks to them both!

We can’t recommend Oli enough! Oli is responsive, kind, and completely down to earth. He is such a pleasure to deal with and puts up with a million different questions from us and always responds to us in a timely and helpful manner. Oli is super knowledgeable about products and services from a range of banks and helps us problem solve any potential road blocks. Definitely recommend 100x over and we hand his details out to all our family and friends ☺️

Nelson FordRecently, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with Nelson. Over the past ten years, we’ve received excellent service and support from the Home Loan Shop and Nelson continues this outstanding service.Nelson worked tirelessly to get everything in order with the bank for our home loan and this included a speed up at the end to bring forward lending with the new Government tax changes coming into force. This was completed within days and allowed us to meet this deadline.We recommend Nelson wholeheartedly if you want top notch service and a competitive home loan and a nice guy to work with!Chris and Alex Nyman.

It's took us a long long time to find our home and Sloan at The Home Loan Shop helped us out countless times as we made offer after offer. When it came time to finalize our loan Sloan spent the time to explain all the details and make sure the mortgage worked for us. Excellent service.

Really fantastic service from Callan and Angela at the Home Loan shop! Not to sound too melodramatic but looking to buy your first house in New Zealand is something of a hell-scape and genuinely helpful services seem hard to come by. Having to try to keep an eye on agents, lawyers, insurers and banks while making offers on a house is exhausting and having such hard working and caring individuals working alongside us at the home loan shop was invaluable and helped preserve our sanity. Highly recommended! Thanks Angela and Callan!

Oliver has been my Mortgage Broker for 6 months and has assisted me with multiple transactions, all of which have been beyond easy! Oliver is professional and responsive which I have always appreciated. He will go above and beyond to get me the best deal from the bank and always puts my best interests first. I look forward working with him in the future and recommend him to anyone looking for a dedicated mortgage broker that will treat you as a person and not just a number. Thank you Oliver

Oliver Keogh was outstanding in arranging a valuation, mortgage, lawyer and accountant for us in order to purchase our dream home (a second property). We approached Oli 7 business days before the deadline sale after incorrect advice from our bank and he went above and beyond to get us ready to submit a successful offer. He kept us informed every step of the way, and really cared about our outcome. Without Oli we would not have this property. I cannot thank him enough!

Sloan has helped us both as first time home buyers and our subsequent move to a new home. I would recommend him to anyone (and have) and can hand on heart say that if he wasn't involved in the process we would not have successfully purchased our home. He is always quick to respond to queries (we had a lot!) and provide advice and guidance to make the process less daunting.

On Christmas Eve we viewed a property that we decided to make an offer on. At that point we had no pre-approved finance so we contacted Carley. She worked tirelessly for us over the Christmas break and our finance was sorted within a few days. We can’t speak highly enough of the professional and friendly service Carley provided and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.

We worked with Nick to buy our first home and cannot recommend him enough! Nick we went above and beyond, several times, to get us into our first home, there would have been a lot of missed opportunities for us if it wasn't for his great work. He was professional, diligent, well researched and very quick to respond to changing factors setting up our mortgage, we would highly recommend him and The Home Loan Shop

My partner and I were very impressed and appreciative with the service we received from the home loan shop and Steven. It was our first time applying for a mortage so it was new territory for us. But Steven made what would've been a complicated process easy. He was always happy to answer any questions we had and kept us updated with what stage of the application we were at. We couldn't have done it with him and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to apply for a mortgage.

Steven was really knowledgeable and communicative, and able to get quick responses from the bank which was invaluable in such a crazy market (definitely wouldn't have got the property I did without his speed and dedication). He was really on top of things and provided great personal service. Ngā mihi Steven!
