Could not recommend The People’s Finance enough. No matter what crazy scheme we had for Matt, he always remained positive and excited about what they could do to help us. Nothing was ever a problem and with the support from Rachel, the process was seamless. So happy to be back in the bay thanks to help from the team (even if they are from Marist 😜)

Danny was recommended to me by a friend, and from the first contact I could see why. What I needed to achieve was tricky and Danny was all over it from day one. Within a tight timeframe he smashed it out of the park. Everything had to be done remotely, and Danny's great communication made it all felt very smooth. I also appreciated him referring me to a Solicitor who was a good fit. I highly recommend Danny, he will exceed your expectations every step of the way. Huge thanks Danny!

The People's came together for an awesome team effort. We had a tight timeframe for settlement and it wasn't an issue. Matt, Lou and Rachel all worked together to ensure a positive and smooth outcome in what could have been a very stressful situation.

I couldn't recommend Danny enough! We were working on very tight timeframes to secure our first home and Danny turned around an unconditional pre-approval from three different banks at very short notice. It was only because of Danny's involvement and the competing offers on the table that our preferred bank actually offered us unconditional finance. On top of that, we secured the best interest rates and cash contribution possible. He takes the time to understand your financial situation, and is able to communicate this effectively to the banks to put you in the best position possible. If you want an expert on your side and somebody to take on the most stressful parts of getting a home loan, I would 100% recommend Danny.

Highly recommend the people’s finance!! They made our dreams of purchasing our first home come true and made the whole process such a smooth ride! Very friendly and if you had a question at 10pm at night Matt would still answer it straight away! He also was so welcoming as soon as we went into their office. Can not recommend enough especially in these crazy times when we didn’t think it would be possible! Thank you so much guys, we couldn’t of done it without you!
