It’s hard to believe you’ll ever meet anyone as passionate about client service as Fane Levy. Delivering exceptional client service is his driving force.

After completing a degree in building management and property economics and embarking on a career in the field, Fane was hankering for something more people-oriented, sales-focused and challenging.

So, he started an online men’s footwear business from his garage. He sold 800 pairs of shoes in just three months, part time.

“Customer service,” he says, “is what helped make the business profitable quickly. In fact, customer service is the cornerstone of all business success and you provide excellent customer service by understanding people’s expectations and then meeting them in a timely way. 

I never, ever want a client to chase me,” says Fane. “If they are, I’m definitely not doing my job.”

Some years later, when mortgage broking came calling, Fane didn’t hesitate. These days his wife runs the footwear business, and Fane’s passion for customer service has turned from shoes to clients who need help finding a loan.

“It’s one thing selling comfortable shoes that look good,” says Fane, “but it’s quite another to help people secure their first home or grow their investment portfolios. Property makes the world go around, and brokers are central to that by helping people to find the finance they need to achieve their dreams and aspirations. It’s very satisfying. It’s such a dynamic industry too; it’s interesting to be part of.”

In a short time, Fane has achieved significant industry award recognition too, as an MPA ‘Young Gun’ in 2017, making the Advisors’ 2018 list of ‘Top 10 for Customer Service’ and also AFG’s Top 40 Brokers, 2018. He works with a range of clients from first home buyers to seasoned property investors, developers and those with commercial interests.

“Working with Fane was a breezy process.  In the beginning stages, he was always quick to answer any queries we had and always available to chat by phone or in person.  He secured our pre-approval with ease, and we felt comfortable during the process because he kept us well-informed.  He’s an all-around great person to work with, and I’d highly recommend him to others.  He helped us to secure our dream home, and for that – we’d gladly engage his services again.”

“I am writing on behalf of both myself, Lilly and Sandra regarding the service Fane has provided us over the past year or two. Throughout the application of the numerous loans we have made, Fane has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Whilst we have found other brokers and institutions to be less than helpful, Fane has been exceptional. His hard work and diligent follow up have made what seemed like a nightmare turn out to be a smooth and easy process. We can’t thank Fane enough for everything he has done for us and have told all friends and family that they would be crazy to go elsewhere should they ever be in need of a loan. Fane is a credit to his company and we look forward to any future dealings with him in the future.

You have a customer for life.”

“Fane Levy of Shore Financial helped me secure a loan whilst searching for, bidding on properties and finally purchasing my first home. 

During this substantial and sometimes daunting process I found him extremely professional, responsive to all my questions and very reliable throughout. He arranged for me a competitive loan that was well tailored to my personal situation as well as financial needs. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for loans in the process of purchasing property.”

Fane assisted myself and my partner in the purchase of our first home. From start to finish Fane’s customer service was amazing from showing us which products would suit our needs, obtaining a great deal and getting our approval sorted in no time. Then when it came time to settle Fane was on top of everything. We highly recommend Fane.”

Brendan

“Fane Levy was recommended to me by a friend who described him as ‘awesome’ and ‘the only mortgage broker worth speaking to in the Eastern Suburbs’.

As this was my first foray into owning a home, I literally had no idea about mortgage brokers and what they did.

Sure enough, Fane managed to live up to the hype. Our first meeting was great. We met at my office in the CBD and over a coffee we were able to set a clear plan to broker the best mortgage for my particular circumstance. During the course of the next few days we kept in touch and by weeks’ end Fane had secured a great rate from one of the leading banks. Five days later I became the proud owner of my new home and couldn’t be happier!

Throughout the entire process, I found Fane to be highly professional, trustworthy and personable, and I am so pleased to have been introduced to him and thankful for his care and dedication.

I highly recommend him as your go-to mortgage broker.”

Sonya Charles

“I have dealt with a number of brokers in the past, but the one that stands out as the most helpful and switched on is Fane. His responses are very timely and he is always available for a chat to explain financial matters. I always felt as though he looked for the best deal for me and that he would give realistic and honest feedback on my purchases. I have recommended him in the past to my internal network and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a broker who will work with your best interests in mind.”

Moises Lopez

“In the past getting finance or refinancing has been a very stressful process. The first time we met Fane we were very impressed with not just his professionalism, but his genuine care factor. He listened and really understood what we were wanting to achieve and each and every time went above and beyond to ensure our goals were met. We have used Fane to assist us a number of times and have referred him to many friends and family. There is nothing but positive feedback for each and every experience using Fane’s services. It’s comforting to know this process with Fane’s help is always going to be stress-free.”

Rachel and Liam

“Fane at Shore Financial was initially referred to us by Bresic Whitley when purchasing a company title property in Sydney. Fane made himself immediately available to meet with us and provided expert guidance and knowledge on how to approach what is often a difficult proposition compounded by further complexities with our financial situation.

After formally enlisting Fane’s services, he professionally went about the task of finding the best options for us and working through a number of obstacles with steadfast devotion, keeping us updated regularly along the way.

Throughout the process we found Fane to be personable, responsive and empathetic – qualities that are often hard to find these days and which make him a great choice for anyone looking for a top-notch mortgage broker.”

Z and G

“I came to Fane for a second transaction after I had already won the bid for buying my property in Queensland. We were time poor for ensuring settlement on the deadline date. Fane was very prompt in picking up my query. He listened and understood my requirement and presented an appropriate and implementable solution fit for my needs with good pricing. After my consent to proceed, he found the relevant people to make this happen and finally with all the hard work and effort of the team we were able to meet the settlement date.

Thank you.”

Saurabh

“Fane is everything you need and want in a credit advisor: he is professional, knowledgeable, diligent, trustworthy, honest, patient and tenacious. Fane recently guided us through the process of refinancing and securing a loan for an investment property. No challenge was too big for Fane, who achieved incredible results for us including settlement on our new property within three weeks. Fane provided us with the best advice, secured us the best loan products and did it all with good grace and humour. Making decisions regarding your financial future is life-changing stuff and Fane’s expertise has certainly changed ours for the better.”

Damien and Emma

“Working with Fane was an absolute pleasure. His ability to make himself available to answer questions and provide advice at any time gave me a great amount of confidence and reassurance while purchasing my first property. His knowledge and level of professionalism in which he conducts himself were greatly appreciated and I look forward to working with Fane again in the future.”

Jacob West

“I have been extremely pleased with the service and advice I received from Fane Levy. He is very professional and always helps with everything you need. Whenever I sent an e-mail with questions, he would answer within a short time frame. He is always very helpful and I would highly recommend his services
to anyone who needs financial help.”

Jana

“Fane has been the best mortgage broker I have dealt with in over 15 refinances and property purchases. His attention to detail is second to none and he is extremely knowledgeable in regard to mortgage options and getting his clients’ needs resolved. I could not recommend him more highly and we will continue to use his services in the future. I also recommended him to my parents who share my views about his thoroughness and knowledge in the financial services sector.”

James Reynolds

“My husband and I recently sought to purchase an investment property and were in search of a broker. Neither of us is particularly financially savvy and we have had some very lacklustre experiences with banks and other brokers.

Fane pours his heart and soul into his work, is endlessly and patiently available to answer the most inane questions, and really knows his stuff. He was completely across our situation at all times and gave us the confidence we needed. And he is just a really nice person, to boot.

We cannot recommend Fane highly enough and would not consider using another broker.”

Janiene and Shane Dwyer

“We engaged Fane from Shore Financial to handle a refinance and an application for a new investment property loan. Being self-employed, the approval process was complicated. Fane was recommended by a family member, and from our initial meeting we found him to be extremely knowledgeable, diligent and always went above and beyond our expectations. Plus, he’s a great bloke!”

Josh Harrison

“When looking for a broker you need someone who’ll ask the right questions to ensure you end up with the right loan for you. Fane Levy at Shore Financial did exactly that for us. Our journey to buying our first home was long and drawn out, starting in Sydney and then moving to Newcastle, NSW. Fane was with us the whole way, advising on different markets and ensuring that whenever we bought, we’d get the right loan for us. From making an offer to settling, Fane was always contactable and reassured us that things were in order and would all be fine. He was right. Everything went smoothly, thanks to his organisation and professionalism.”

Benjamin Scott

“To Fane’s supervisors, bosses and even peers, my name is Garen Manoukian, my father and I recently came to Fane to help us with our home loan.

Our experience with Fane surpassed all of our expectations. Fane is a gem amongst others brokers out there. I have had a business relationship with Fane previously and did not know what to expect when I came to him for a second opinion.

I believe Fane has found his calling; he will definitely succeed in this industry. A broker like Fane needs as much exposure to clients as possible.

As an employer myself, I can see much value in Fane’s role and contribution to any business. Not only does Fane realise what it takes to succeed and keep clients happy, but he also knows how to execute it. Fane was taking our calls, giving advice and making amendments to our application at all hours of the day and night, Saturday and even Sunday. Service of that calibre would satisfy the most prominent of clients.

I want to summarise by saying that we have been so happy with Fane – it would be wrong not to tell his superiors about how great our experience was with him.”

Garen Manoukian, Leading Technician Impedanz Electrical

“Over the course of the last six months I have been pursuing my first purchase as a homeowner with your fantastic credit advisor, Fane Levy. Fane has been instrumental in not only getting my finances in order but also in facilitating the search and supporting my needs. I sincerely believe you truly have found an asset in Fane’s ability and want to thank Fane for the work he has carried out. I certainly will be recommending his work to others.”

Natasha Irani

“We definitely did not make it easy for Fane… a shortened four week settlement, bidding above our pre-approval (meaning we had four weeks to start from scratch), a joint purchase as tenants-in-common with equity for the loan spread between assets in the UK and Australia, the need to avoid LMI with only 10% deposit to put down (a stroke of genius from Fane without which we would have never even bid on this awesome property – although this unfortunately added to the difficulty in getting the loan pushed through!)… just to name a few of the challenges we threw Fane’s way.

Fane worked extremely hard to make it all happen, having everything in place and ready to go with even a few days to spare. The level of service was exceptional, attending auctions with us for moral support, and constant reassurance from him which was very much appreciated during a stressful and uncertain time.

We owe a lot to Fane in helping us achieve this great purchase – I will be highly recommending him in the future.”

Seth Ephron

“I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding support you have given Anna and me over the past few months. We are simply bowled over by the generous time and effort you have given to our modest project. 

We know that there must be far easier ways of making a living and feel that your sincerity and professionalism shone through the whole process.

We are truly grateful to you.”

Jonathan Tottman

“For someone like me who was new to the home loan market, Fane was very patient and helpful with my many questions, not to mention having been able to negotiate a great deal with one of the big banks.”

Misha

“Working with Fane to find a suitable home loan was nothing but a pleasure. As first home buyers, Fane was able to guide us through the process with great ease and excellent communication. We would highly recommend Fane’s services.”

Elison and Chloe

“I want to thank Fane from Shore Financial Services for the support and effort he has made in organising and pulling my refinance together. I personally would have thought refinancing would be stressful and very nerve-racking. However, Fane made it simple, easy to understand and made it all happen within a number of weeks. Shore Financial delivered a high level of customer service and were helpful in assisting to complete documentation and realistic in managing my expectations.”

Iveta Navara

“We were glad we had Fane as our mortgage broker. He works hard and goes out of his way to accommodate our work schedule. Always available for a chat and very patient at explaining financial jargon. He is genuine and cares about clients. We will highly recommend Fane.”

Wendy and Romain

“I am writing to express my gratitude and respect for Mr Fane Levy of Shore Financial.

Without him, I would not have bought my first property and been able to get out of the renting cycle.

Of the several mortgage advisors I had sounded out, Fane was the only one who had the tenacity and grit to help me secure my mortgage approval. He was attentive, prompt and skilled. Despite the relatively low loan amount and the difficult approval process, he remained “hungry” for the deal and “fought” alongside me.

When I first engaged Fane, I knew he was well-regarded as the 2017 MPA Young Guns by the industry. Now, I can attest that he is a great asset and has helped set your firm apart. It is a pure delight to work with such a professional.”

Siew Lee Seow

“If you are looking for a mortgage or to refinance, Fane Levy from Shore Financial is your man. My wife and I recently settled on our first home, and were preparing for a really daunting and complicated process, but Fane made everything extremely simple, and was on-call at all hours (even when he was on holidays!) to answer any questions or concerns. He also provided continuous updates unprompted, and managed to get everything approved very quickly. I would highly recommend Fane’s services.”

Antony Butler

“Just wanted to say thanks for all the time, effort and guidance you provided during my refinance process. It was definitely a tricky situation but you made it happen and showed great tenacity, attention to detail and skill in getting this across the line. Best customer service I’ve received in a long time too – always attentive, prompt and genuine. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for mortgage.

Thanks again for all your help and all the best for the future!”

Rachel

“Once again, thank you so much. You were so great to deal with and got us an amazing rate. We really appreciated your efforts through the whole process and will definitely be recommending you to our friends.”

Chloe and Leo

“When my wife and I first started this process, it was daunting and we didn’t know where to start. We contacted a few lenders; however, always felt uncertain with the information we were provided. However, after meeting with Fane both my wife and I felt instantly at ease. The information he provided us was clear and he always had time to help walk us through each step. We felt that Fane had a genuine care in finding us the right loan.

Throughout the process Fane went above and beyond and always made himself available to answer any questions that we had. Even on settlement date, Fane was away on holidays but made himself available for a call when we had an urgent question, showing us again that he really did have a genuine care throughout the process.

I would like to again thank Fane for his help and would highly recommend him to anyone about to go through this process. I do not know how we would have done it without him.”

Tom Chapman

“Thanks so much for all of the work you did helping us purchase our new home and reorganise our finances for our existing property.
We are genuinely delighted with how you have looked after everything – no request too big or small or complicated.
Most of all we appreciated your speed of response to each query regardless of the time of day! We always felt reassured that you were doing all in your power to move things along.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family.”

Christine and Colin Brennan

“My wife and I used Fane from Shore Financial for our recent mortgage. 

Fane went above and beyond our expectations, making sure we had our mortgage completed as quickly as possible and securing a great rate for us.

Fane’s help and guidance through this stressful time was invaluable; we couldn’t be happier with the outcome and the service we received. We cannot recommend Fane more highly.”

Matt and Jess

“I’m a non-resident Australian and have recently purchased an investment property in Sydney. We simply couldn’t have done it without Fane. His dedication, attention to detail and leadership of the various stakeholders got the deal across the line.”

Luke Jacobson

“Fane was a pleasure to work with throughout our home loan application process. As first-time buyers we had many questions that needed answering and Fane was there for us at all times of the day no matter how small the question. Fane was extremely helpful in guiding us through each step of the process and has continued his support post settlement. I would highly recommend Fane to anyone looking to seek assistance with obtaining a home loan, especially first home buyers.”

Dom West

“Fane was very professional, readily available and mastered the loan process. He managed the whole lending so well and that saved a lot of my time. I would be more than happy to refer Fane to my friends and family.”

Anju Aggarwal

“We engaged Fane after being left in limbo with our current broker for weeks on an off the plan purchase fast approaching settlement. This of course was at a time when the banking royal commission was in full swing and everyone was feeling the banks tightening their lending criteria. We met up with Fane and explained the urgency of our situation and were immediately put at ease. Fane was extremely professional but more importantly was very prompt with his actions and updates as he knew how stressed we were. We had our conditional approval within three days and our unconditional approval within five days – which is amazing considering the current lending environment.”

Chan and San

“Thank you very much for getting my refinancing over the line when it was virtually impossible.

It was a pleasure working with you; your service was very fast and efficient. I will definitely recommend you to others.”

George Gerzilis

“Working with Fane was my own fortunate first experience with a mortgage broker. I’m grateful to him for ensuring the process was a smooth and relatively stress-free one. 

I shall continue to recommend him to anyone on the lookout looking for expert guidance and infinite wisdom amidst what might otherwise prove an overwhelming or daunting process.”
