My wife and I own a financial planning business and assist clients with their debt strategies as part of our day to day business. My wife was a lending manager for banks in the past. We use Duncan at Launch Finance for our clients so logically we used him this year when we purchased an investment property. For us with the complexity of our business structures and the fact we invest through a Family Trust it is important to use an experienced broker who can understand a P&L, addbacks and structures. The benefit we got in using Duncan and his team firstly is a huge saving in time in researching/negotiating the right bank and seeing it through to settlement. Secondly they have established relationships with quality individuals in the banks which meant that they were able to prioritise our job and avoid the normal loan processing pool that the banks have these days. To have a specialist team who work hard for us to get the right deal implemented and then to not have to fork out a fee to pay them for that service is the great benefit of a broker like Launch.Read Less

Launch Finance were able to help us buy our first home. A home we liked came on the market a week before we were flying out on a 4 week holiday. Duncan met with us on short notice and was friendly, informative, realistic and quick in letting us know what was possible so we could put in an offer in the day we were flying out. While in Europe, Duncan and Sonia were so helpful in keeping us up to date with what was happening and what we needed to do. We were a bit clueless on the process of buying a house but with Launch FInance help we were able to do it while on the other side of the world. Thanks Duncan and SoniaRead Less
