‘’As a first-time home buyer, Brenden made the Finance process so easy and stress-free. I never felt like I was asking stupid questions and feel really confident in how my loan works.

- Phillip, September 2020
‘’Josh and the team at SMS Finance were instrumental in us being able to buy our very first home. The attention to detail, knowledge of products, and awareness of available grants and schemes are the only reason we were able to settle. Even to the point of making us aware of additional money to use towards the deposit through the First Home Super Saver we were not aware of. We entered the market looking at 'low deposit options' and in the course of doing due diligence and comparing those products to the 'open market' SMS Finance were able to provide a product a whole percentage point lower in interest with a mortgage product that let us pick any property on the market within our budget. Instead of needing to buy in the outer suburbs, we were able to buy 300m from where we were renting which would not have been possible without the advice and help of Josh and the team.’’
- Sam, September 2020

He is calm and can answer any question you may have. I found Brenden to be very knowledgeable and caring towards myself and my partner being that it was out first ever home loan. I would recommend Brenden to anyone!’’
- Maddison, August 2020
‘’Usually communication is difficult for me as I work shift work, but somehow you made it seem such an easy process. Your wonderful staff took away a lot of the worries as I was selling and buying at the same time. I even corresponded with Jacqui after my sale, due to my buyer asking for a week extension on settlement day. They cost me an extra $2000 in bills, to add to that stress my solicitor not providing a professional service and missing the window to claim me any compensation.
Please let Jacqui, June and the other girls know how thankful I was in a very stressful time.’’
