Demystifying Your Mortgage

Claire McArthur of Personalised Mortgages

Claire is a mortgage advisor with Personalised Mortgages Ltd, a premier mortgage brokering company that assists you to obtain the finance to get yourself into your dream home. Claire can also assist you with refinancing or consolidating your loans, and perhaps even get that investment property portfolio underway. Every advisor at Personalised Mortgages Ltd has worked in either the business or commercial areas of the banks. This means that you are getting service and knowledge that few others can match.

“Contrary to what many people believe, you don’t have to be in dire straits to use the services of a mortgage broker,” Claire points out. “In fact, it’s often best to check out what we have to offer first, particularly for those new to the world of financial services.

“The first step on the property ladder is the hardest. Finding finance for a deposit and convincing a lender to have faith in your ability to meet repayments is often very daunting. Banks can have rigid requirements which don’t suit every borrower.

“That’s where I come in. I have a solid banking background in banking; I’ve worked my way up from teller to managing commercial and personal portfolios. Because I’m familiar with the different lenders’ criteria I am able to negotiate with them to arrange the best possible deal, saving my clients valuable time and worry.

“And best of all, it normally doesn’t cost clients a thing.

“Working with my clients is the best thing about my job – I love it. That was my favourite part of working in the bank, and as an independent mortgage advisor I now have more time and flexibility to tailor solutions to individual clients. Personalised Mortgages Ltd provides just that – a personalised service.

“I have a really good ability to bond with people and I enjoy providing as much or as little assistance as they want. Often clients really appreciate a wraparound service – not just a mortgage, but helping with insurance, lawyers, accountants and wills to protect their biggest asset. I make sure all protocols have been complied with for investing in a property or business so that there are no nasty last minute surprises.”

As a long term local resident, Claire loves working with clients in the Pukekohe and Franklin area, and with the continued strong growth in the region there’s bound to be more demand for her services. Like most of us, the more she can avoid the horrors of the southern motorway, the better she likes it. Conveniently for local clients, she’s based in Pukekohe’s Professional House in Seddon Street several days a week but is always available to meet with clients in their home.

“I’m totally mobile – whatever suits.”
