Looking for the best mortgage broker in Brisbane?

If you’ve recently moved to Australia, home loan specialist Anish can help you identify the best mortgages with the cheapest mortgage rates. As he has an understanding of what the best home loan lenders require in terms of your job situation, he can also help you find the best mortgage interest rates for your circumstances, while also ensuring that you choose a home loan lender that appreciates the fact you may not have lived in Australia for very long and your credit history here might be minimal.

While Anish is a Brisbane mortgage broker, he covers the whole of Australia. If you’re looking for a home loan specialist in the Brisbane area, he can come and visit you for a no obligation chat in person, but if you’re based outside Brisbane then he can give you home loan advice over the phone and via email.

When you are buying your home in Australia, especially after you’ve spent so much money moving across the world, you want to save money wherever you can.

Getting the best mortgage advice is essential. You need a home loan specialist who understands the needs of new arrivals who may only have recently started a job (maybe even on a casual or temporary basis) and may not have much/any credit history. Anish knows the different mortgage providers and can recommend the best one to suit your circumstances which is just as important as getting you a great rate.

How to get the $100 cashback deal when taking out a mortgage in Australia

Send Anish an initial message through the contact form on this page. That will track that you came from my website. He will get in touch to arrange to chat with you with no obligation. It’s free, so what have you got to lose?!

If you decide to use Anish’s service as a mortgage broker, and he knows you are a Smart Steps to Australia reader, when your mortgage settles he will send you a $100 visa card (your mortgage needs to be over $200k to be eligible for the giftcard). That’s it! He is paid a fee by the mortgage company, so you don’t need to pay him anything for his services.

You can use the giftcard to buy anything where you see the visa sign (i.e. pretty much any shops or online stores). So whether you use it for a dinner out to celebrate your new home, you buy yourself an expensive bottle of champagne or you use it to buy some new furniture – it is yours to enjoy as you wish.

Finding the best mortgage deals and looking for recommendations of the best mortgage broker can make your head spin. But it’s important to use a mortgage broker rather than going straight to your bank as they can ensure you are considering the best mortgage lenders on the market. They also have inside knowledge about how much evidence is required, how much work experience is needed and all of the things that can make a difference between a successful mortgage application and a failed attempt. A mortgage is the most expensive borrowing you’re ever going to take on, so get an expert mortgage broker to help you navigate to ensure you get the best mortgage for your needs.

Our story of buying a home in Australia

We spoke to our new Australian bank when we arrived in Australia and felt very disheartened about the likelihood of getting a mortgage for years as I was self-employed with no history in the country and my husband was going to be working in temporary contracts. Anish came highly recommended from a number of our expat friends who had recently bought houses, so we called him for a chat not expecting him to tell us anything different. After meeting him, we were so relieved to find we were eligible for a mortgage just using my husband’s income (even though we hadn’t been here long) so it didn’t matter that I didn’t have a few years of accounts behind me here.

After understanding our circumstances, Anish recommended Commonwealth Bank to us for our mortgage. Being able to get a mortgage so quickly meant that instead of waiting a few years, we were able to buy our dream home in north Brisbane with a pool in Australia just nine months after landing here. Moving into our own home so quickly helped us put down roots and feel settled. A few years on and our mortgage is still with Commonwealth Bank and we’ve found their customer service to be excellent which is why I reached out to them to be my banking partner for this site.
