No. You are a bloody legend.

Colin and his team have been super effective in finding solutions to our personal and investment needs. And with none of the issues or extended waiting periods we have encountered with banks directly before using SMS finance. Obtaining finance is now something we stress about less when looking at projects as SMS have made it very smooth. Thanks guys

Customer testimonial

Colin was understanding, empathetic and went the extra mile to help me secure my goal of purchasing a property after overcoming previous financial difficulties and losses. Thank you for making my goal a reality, I couldn’t have done it without your knowledge and assistance
I can not recommend SMS highly enough! What an incredible service and made obtaining a mortgage very straight forward. We had just emigrated from the UK and from first contact with Colin to moving in to our lovely new home was 6 weeks…. incredible!

Professional with high integrity. Great knowledge of Sunshine Coast and all the elements to assist me in the start of a new venture.






“SMS finance provided me with friendly & professional service during every step of my purchasing journey. I have already recommended them to my friends.


SMS finance has helped me to achieve my lifelong dream of owning my own home. As a single mother starting from scratch any little win would be helpful.


I enjoyed working with Colin. He was always available anytime I needed.”


– Fiona


“Excellent, everything is great!”


“The efficiency and ease to talk to. I always feel as though you all know what you are doing and it’s so nice to know our money is in safe hands.


The team at SMS finance are outstanding. Previous dealings I had with mortgage brokers were so stressful and exhausting and I found I was always having to chase them up but not SMS Finance.


I always have faith in their knowledge, advice and service. They have saved me so much money on my existing loans and set up new ones as well. They are so professional and friendly and I seek comfort in knowing they will do the right thing by me.

They are clearly seeking long term customers by treating people right rather than trying to make money.


Can’t speak highly enough about them.”

Colin has been a great broker nothing was too hard for him to sort out and when we had problems with son thought it was sold out in a timely fashion

Col Mason, what can I say, the mad man works just to hard, I told him he better turn his phone off in Bali! BOOM.
– Rob


My husband and I have been a client of Colins for around 10 years now. Somehow Colin makes the process so easy and is very re-assurring. He knows your personal requirements and understands what might be best for most people, may not be suitable for you. Outside of our own home, our investment properties are the biggest financial risk we have and it is very comforting to know that we have Colin on our team!
– Nicole
We had always used banks for our finances, but when the banks put our circumstances in their ‘too hard basket’, we were recommended Colin by a friend, and he was able to successfully assist us in finding a institution to fulfil our financial needs and were able to buy the property of our dreams.
– Tania


Used clear, plain, calm language. Dealt with the bank and solicitors when we were struggling, always contactable and returned our calls and goes the extra mile.

John took a 200Km round trip to assist us with our mortgage application paperwork, when we had a difficult deadline to meet. I think that speaks for itself.
