“In all my years investing I don’t think any broker that I have worked with has ever gone the extra mile after the loan was settled to negotiate a better rate. Thank you Barry and the team at Clever Finance Solutions!”

“Barry and his team went above and beyond with helping us refinance our existing property and with starting to build our investment portfolio. We would definitely recommend Clever Finance Solutions!”

Holly Venters

“We would sincerely like to thank Clever Finance Solutions for all their hard work, time, patience and persistence into sealing the deal for us. We were originally led to Clever Finance by word of mouth as the experts in obtaining finance specifically for investors and sure enough, we succeeded.

As our financial structure for purchasing a property was somewhat different, finding a lender who would agree to it became a huge hurdle to overcome. At one stage, we had a bank withdraw their pre approval, leaving us with no finance and the settlement date arriving quickly. The process, to say the least, was a laborious one not to mention stressful—nevertheless, Clever Finance went into bat for us with the banks. In the end, Clever Finances efforts enabled us to secure two offers for final approval and allowed us to select the offer with the most favourable terms.

What impressed us most of all was Clever Finance’s tenacity as they never gave up and fully supported us every step of the way and we are greatly appreciative of all their efforts. They carefully explained the process and assisted me when I still needed help to understand the documents received from my bank. They are extremely patient and never get frazzled. It is a pleasure to deal with Clever Finance Solutions.

Thanks for your help, this property will allow us to build a stronger future for our family.”

“Barry has helped us in the past with refinancing and now with buying our new home and a car. He has always been incredibly generous with his time, gets us great deals and just makes everything so much easier by taking away the stress of us trying to figure out all of the different finance options out there.”

“As a small business owner, my broker was having trouble figuring out how we were going to get the loan we needed for a property we’d put a deposit on. If we didn’t get the loan then we were going to lose the substantial deposit, putting our business at risk AND we was going to be homeless (my wife was going to kill me). I was lamenting to a friend who suggested I give Barry a call. Barry listened carefully to our predicament, asked questions about our financial situation and came up with a solution that was outside the box and fit perfectly with what we were willing to do. Without Barry’s careful consideration and brilliant idea, we would not be moving into our dream home without any risk to the business. Barry has our gratitude for life and we could not recommend him more highly. Solution focused and caring, what more could you ask for in a mortgage broker?”
