What does Johan Overa like most about this industry? Quite simply, the fact that it’s a free service for borrowers.

Originally from Norway, Johan completed his bachelor degree in Marketing and Management at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, before moving to Sydney.

His career includes a wealth of international experience across several industries, including residential and commercial real estate.

He joined Shore Financial in 2016 and has quickly gained a reputation amongst his clients for ‘straight talking’.

He freely admits that being transparent as well as helping clients to cut through the jargon and learn about the mortgage process are some of the things he enjoys most.

“There’s nothing worse than sitting in a meeting where people are talking about LVRs, MBRs and DSRs. These numbers can be complex. The most important thing is that people know what they’re committing to and the finances involved,” he explains.

“There’s a saying I love which goes like this: ‘You never know who’s swimming naked until the tide goes out.’ I want all my clients to know exactly what’s going on. That means no surprises or misunderstandings.”

Johan’s attention to detail, his directness and his knowledge are all attributes that enable him to quickly garner the trust of his clients. In just a couple of years, he has built a strong portfolio of clients, mostly through ‘word-of-mouth’ referrals.

“I aim to stay at the forefront of changes to this industry – policy, rates, lender options… so I can add value to clients by helping them to understand their own financial options better when it comes to borrowing for a home or an investment property.”

“Johan is an exceptional broker and someone I trust. He is always available and willing to listen and help. I am very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you.”


“Without Johan I wouldn’t have my little property – Johan was amazing – calm, informative and so very helpful. I definitely recommend Johan for First Home Buyers as well – as I really didn’t know what I was doing and he guided me through the whole process.”


“Thank you for your professionalism and assistance throughout the whole process”



“Johan helped us out with two off the plan purchases over the past year, an owner/occupied in Sydney and an investment on the Gold Coast. Both projects had their fair share of delays but Johan has been amazing throughout the whole process. We met with him several times and he’s been available at the drop of a hat for any questions that we’ve had. Both settlements ran smoothly with the second one happening yesterday.

We been amazed at the level of customer service we’ve been given from Johan and Shore. I’ll be recommending Shore to any friends who are looking to purchase.”
