“Melissa is extremely professional,  friendly, client-oriented and proactive. She provided me with a personalised loan strategy based on a solid analysis and understanding of my investment needs.

She kept everything organised and updated me during the process making sure I was always informed. This made a stressful exercise much easier. I couldn’t thank her enough for her great help. I would love to recommend her to anyone who needs a great mortgage broker.”
