Julianne CrokerMackay, QLD.
"Thanks to Kara at YBR who made the process of applying for finance for our new home an absolute breeze! She tailored her recommendations to suit us, and we now have the best loan to suit our needs. Although we are in a different state, Kara went above and beyond throughout the whole process and we can't thank her enough! We will definitely be using the services of YBR Mackay again very soon, and have recommended them to all our friends."

"'Time is of the essence' - dealing with investment loans and everyday life can be exhausting and time consuming. Lisa made my loan approval process fast and painless. Her attention to detail ensured nothing was missed and her work ethic meant she responded incredibly fast. Not to mention the good rates she got me from various lenders! These are key attributes you need in a broker and Lisa has them all. Lisa thanks for your help and keep up the hard work."
Vera Howlett St Marys, NSW.
"Thank you to Clyde & Fiona at YBR St Marys for their outstanding work and service. My Mother and I sought out YBR St Marys regarding our superannuation, investment portfolios, insurance, the refinance our home loan and to set my mum up in her transition into retirement.
Upon my intial interactions with the team, they surpassed my expectations. I cannot speak highly enough of them. They presented us with a range of products in the market, focusing on our unique needs and budget. Their advice was impartial and transparent. Both Clyde and Fiona went above and beyond to ensure both mum and I were comfortable with their recommendations. We now feel organised and prepared with our finances; a huge peace of mind.
Clyde and Fiona are very knowledgeable and very approachable, which made the whole process a pleasant experience. I thoroughly recommend YBR St Marys to anyone who wants quality advice to help secure their financial future."
Cameron JohnMaylands, SA.
"I had met with 5 brokers before I came across Straun. By this stage I was convinced that the industry was full of financial cowboys who couldn't spell my name correctly.
My first meeting with Straun was one of transparency, which I found was an experience in itself. I've personally recommended Straun to a myriad of my mates, family and whomever needs financial solutions. Big thanks to Straun and his team for a smooth, honest and consistent level of service."
Lonetta SheppardBrighton, SA.
"Awesome experience!!!!! 10 times better than dealing with the big four banks. Andrew Mudie and Deep Thacker are the best to deal with and we highly recommend them."
Josh FriendMaylands, SA.
"I was at a point where I wanted to see if there was anything better out there for me and my family. Luckily I was contacted by Tom and the YBR team and the way they conducted their work and their down-to-earth-nature gave me the peace of mind and whats more the absolute best deal that was out there. Thanks guys for all your efforts."
Chong KeatBrighton, SA.
"The team at Yellow Brick Road Brighton has not only setup my new home loan, but also shown great patience in helping me to understand the whole structure.
Their great work and active updates have made the process quick and easy. We experienced setbacks in the process with the real estate agent, but Andrew and his team went above and beyond to sort things out for us. I will have no doubt in recommending Andrew to anyone who is looking to buy a home."
Jane SpearpointWest End, QLD.
"Suzy has looked after me with my home loan, my super and now my new car. She's been brilliant and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family. ★★★★★ for YBR West End!"
George LucasMount Barker, SA.
"Highly recommend Cameron as a fantastic Mortgage Broker. He leaves no stone unturned to find the absolute best deal out there. Great follow up service."
Stefan LipaBrighton, SA.
"It has been such a pleasure to deal with the team at Yellow Brick Road Brighton.
They have made refinancing my home loan a stress free event. A notable mention to Andrew and Jarod as their expertise and knowledge is second to none. They were clear and informative across the whole process. Thank you for showing me the clear path amongst the murky woods of the 'big four'."
David ChippendaleMaylands, SA.
"I recently had the pleasure of arranging finance to purchase a property on the north shore in Sydney through Yellow Brick Road in Crows Nest.
I did my research with all the large banks before committing to YBR and none of them could go close to the mortgage loan rate offered through YBR. Apart from the rate, I can honestly say that without the help and assistance of James who we dealt with at YBR Crows Nest, we would have likely missed out on the property in Killara. We felt that we needed to move quickly on the property and make an offer before auction. To do this we needed a mortgage broker who could also move quickly.
James went above and beyond to help us at every stage and I’ve never seen anyone in any service industry be as efficient, thorough or accessible. We were able to make our offer the day we saw the property and we were able to settle within a few weeks. The real estate agent mentioned she’d never seen any mortgage broker move as quickly and efficiently as James had and without his help we would have likely missed out on securing this property before auction. A similar sized property recently sold in the same complex and we can say that we are extremely happy we were able to move on ours before auction.
If you are looking for the best mortgage rate and the most efficient and attentive service available we highly recommend James at YBR in Crows Nest."
Susan BrogdenBendigo, Victoria.
"A big thank you to Carol Ayo who assisted us with finance on a car.
Carol was able to have finance approved and available in 48 hours. Carol's service was second to none, she researched and came up with the best option and fit for us. Once we found the car we had a very tight timeline we wanted to meet and because of Carol's efficiency, flexibility and can do attitude we were able to pick up the car within a short time. Again, thank you for all of your help, we will definitely recommend you to others."
Garry and Dianne WardBlacktown, NSW.
"It goes without saying most people who work all their life, want to be able to retire in relative comfort and have the financial freedom to also have options e.g overseas travel, purchasing a caravan or a new car... My wife and I realised that we had wasted a lot of time not knowing, or being ignorant about what we required for our retirement years. We needed someone who could take us to where we wanted to go.
When our daughter and husband decided to meet with Zaheer from Blacktown YBR, we decided to also listen to what he had to say. He was very informative and truthful about our situation and we felt very comfortable. After more meetings we could see that what he told us would happen, did happen. Our daughter and husband were living upstairs so they could save for a deposit on a first home and had spoken to Zaheer about how hard it was to get a house in Sydney.
Zaheer came up with a solution. He suggested they buy our house which would allow them to enter the housing market and for us to reture without debt and do the things we had wanted. He helped us through the process and we now have no hesitation in recommending Zaheer... Sincere, quietly spoken, knowledgable and motivated to do what is best for YOU."
"Knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy - that summarises my view of YBR in Kensington, specifically Violetta - the Branch Principal. In all our past dealings, she's always come through for us. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to my friends and associates."
Vik SundarAinslie, ACT.
"We suspected that we weren't getting the best deal with our bank.
At one point I contacted my Business Banker and requested that they review our interest rate, but was told that we had already been given the best possible rate. Given that all of our other personal and business accounts were also with NAB, it seemed like too much hassle to move the loans.
I am so glad we decided to check in with YBR Ainslie. From our very first dealing with Yellow Brick Road, everything has been fantastic. Michael and his team did a comprehensive analysis of our existing loans and showed us immediately the savings that we could make by refinancing. He gave us clear options and outlined the immediate and long term benefits. They managed the entire process and went above and beyond to drop documents off to us after hours. They kept us informed throughout the process and have continued providing advice and support even after the loan has been refinanced. We were very surprised to find out our interest saving alone saved us approximately $6,000 in the first year!"
[Vik has since gone on to buy another investment property, refer family and friends, take on SMSF planning work from his advisor and create an Estate Planning business (Mode Legal Online Wills) with Michael and his wife - a service provided by YBR.]
Nathan LukeNorthern Rivers, NSW.
"Fantastic service from a team with an amazing amount of expertise and the sort of experience rarely found outside Sydney.
We referred a number of our clients, for loans, financial advice, etc and we have always been very happy with the services and that they treat our clients as well as we do, which is always so important when referring others."
Robyn & Jason MartinPenrith, NSW.
"Thanks Matt for all your hard work getting us into our first home!
We are very appreciative of all your behind the seens stress that we never seen, would definitely recommend you to any of our friends, Thanks again, Jason and Robyn"
Jim ThomsPreston, SA.
"I have always found Goro and his team will provide me with the very best service and advice.
Only recently after reviewing my current situation and what I wanted to do going forward, Goro suggested I expand on my current plan effectively doing him out of some potential business. This is the measure of a true professional with high integrity and only wanting the very best deal for his clients. Congrats Goro. Keep up your exceptional work."
Allison MurrellWollongong, NSW.
"We used the service of Yellow Brick Road Wollongong to refinance our mortgage.
Justin went above and beyond for us including two trips to our home in Sydney to accommodate our busy lives. I could not fault any part of the process; Justin made everything really easy. We also got a great interest rate that we are more than happy with. I have no hesitation in recommending Justin for any of your finance needs. He is professional; friendly and super efficient! Thank you Justin; we look forward to seeing you again."
Dale WylieMaylands, SA.
“We met Straun, Tom and the team at YBR some months ago because I suspected my bank (a big four) was putting their interests ahead of our own.
After careful analysis and some number crunching with the YBR team, we now have a bank that listens, provides excellent service and more than competitive rates of interest. The bonus with all this was teaming up with Silvertail Property Group, who have worked closely with us and YBR to bring our first investment property to fruition.
I strongly recommend sitting down with these people even if just to check whether your current lender is working hard for you, or just themselves. As well, the capacity to invest in our future was clearly detailed and made decision making easy for us. Jacq and I look forward to many more dealings with YBR and Silvertail. Don't settle for ‘that's how we've always done it.’ Try these people. Thank me later!"
Richard CantorCronulla, NSW.
"Andrew and Tim, I wish you both to know what an amazing operator you have in Jonathan at YBR Cronulla. He is the epitome of the 'can do' person and certainly the one man everyone wants on their team when dealing with any financial issue.
From our first meeting I knew we were not only in safe and competent hands, but that of a true professional who is still able to relate in the most genuine way with clients. When we had problems he had the solutions, when I had worries he was a calming influence and reassured us. We were on an extremely tight schedule for a number of reasons, and although I knew he could work miracles I didn't realize he could so fast.
The final result is an extremely happy client who has absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and YBR to anyone requiring your services. Jonathan and his colleague at Cronulla are a credit to your company and an asset no amount of advertising could buy. Hopefully you can pass on our appreciation and acknowledge him through your company - I am sure he would be an operator Mark Bouris would be proud to have on board."
