We loved working with Linsday and wouldn't use anyone else. He is quick, personable, knowledgable, kind and a pleasure to work with. I can't fault his work at all!
Sam Ludbrook has been extremely helpful with my home loan application process. I had a really good experience by using squirrel. As the 1st home buyer who had no idea about the home loan process, his patience and detail explanations made my life a lot easy and stress free. I will definitely recommend Squirrel to others.
Our broker was always on hand to answer queries and provided open and honest information and assistance. This was our first rental property we had purchased and we were very satisfied with the mortgage outcome and would recommend this service to others.
The whole process went very smooth with squirrel. The person handled my case was very much interacted with me and explained every case in a very tidy way since it's my first mortgage.
I have quite recommended few friends already.
Squirrel arranged our finance, living in Wellington we liaised via email & phone which worked perfectly, was easy & stress free, highly recommend & will definately used Squirrel again
I liked there services, gave me options and a better understanding on what best suits my loan type very grateful for there professional staff have recommended to other family members.
I have used squirrel services to buy 2 properties. My second purchase was a relocatable villa and Section. I had spotted the villa on trademe whilst living overseas and the auction was the night I returned home to nz after 4 years of being away, having not even viewed it in person, I won the auction. It was love at first site when I got to see it. I would highly recommend Kyle from squirrel, I know I would of missed out on this house without the expertise of Kyle at Squirrel. He, along with Squirrel have given me great advice and made the procedure simple,considering it is a very complex structure. Now I have my dream house because of Kyle and squirrel. I am very happy to achieve my dream of owning a villa by the sea.
We were happy with the result we got but felt the advisor was trying to push us into a certain product type we were adamant we didn't want (it seemed like we would be getting more commission for it). The product didn't suit our needs and we really had to be firm when saying no.
We came out of our first meeting with the advisor feeling very positive as he was friendly and approachable and had time for our questions. But the second meeting was very cold and clinical and felt like we would be rushed through. We also felt like the meeting times were arranged around where and when suited the advisor, not us.
Althought the initial product with a different bank fell through, we managed to have a back up mortgage approval to rely on. Adviser was helpful throughout the process.
Response times and ongoing communication were slow / delayed. I had to follow up on multiple occasions. The delayed process meant I probably paid more interest at my old back then I needed to. But that's mostly forgiven because I had a great outcome.
There were some discrepancies with the amount the advisor told us the bank would lend, and the rate.
This was my first time in purchasing a property for myself and Marilize was a huge help. There was alot to learn throughout this process and I felt that I could ask anything, even if I wasn't sure it was part of the mortgage process. This was a huge help to put this together and understand what was being asked of me.
Squirrel came recommended to us and they have made things very easy.
Would be great to have a Christchurch advisor to meet up with but wasn't necessarily a barrier to the process.
I have used Squirrel for several years and have brought a friend and family members for help with their mortgages.
Shaun was excellent at giving advice on structuring my different loans for maximum security and cost effectiveness.
He achieved a rate for us I had no idea was on the table and the cash contribution was fantastic. We are now paying a lot less than I was expecting
Firstly let me start by saying a great big THANK YOU to squirrel mortgages from the first call I had with Emma to the last she was awesome and professional she took our dream and made it a reality And to be honest the hardest part was looking for the right house nothing else because she took care of everything else THANK YOU EMMA
