Mortgage Broker in Essendon, Moonee Ponds, Brunswick, Point Cook, Port Melbourne and surrounding suburbs

I've helped hundreds of couples, families and single women by being there when they needed it most and to answer all of those questions and more. My focus is not the loan, it's helping you realise your dreams and goals. I guide you through the process of buying a home, budgeting to help maintain your existing lifestyle, introducing you to all the professionals you might need along the way, solicitors, financial planners, building inspector, insurers, accountant, etc. You get as much or as little of my knowledge, experience and contacts as you need.


  • C.L Donnelly - Coburg North
    Astrid is a wonderful professional who helped us immensely in buying our first home. It was a complicated loan with a split contract and us not having a big deposit but we got there! She was kind and compassionate but also straight talking when needed. Astrid has been the biggest blessing to us in this process and I cannot recommend her highly enough. We will be sending a lot of business Astrids way that is for sure!

  • D. Smith - Melbourne Outer
    My experience with Loan Market, in particular the assistance and guidance from Astrid Caddeo, has made the task of refinancing mortgages an absolute breeze. I am so thankful that I chose to seek advice from Astrid, as it made the somewhat tedious and difficult process of choosing a lender, stress free and seamless, particularly as there are so many choices out there in the Home Finance arena. Astrid went the extra mile on many occasions, communication was clear, concise and frequent, and it was this extra attention to detail which made the whole process so much easier. I'd recommend Astrid and Loan Market to my family and friends and anyone that is faced with the large and sometimes daunting task of deciding how to go about refinancing. A BIG THANK YOU!

  • R.Eaton - Melbourne
    We have spent the last 1.5 years searching for the perfect lifestyle property to suit our needs and Astrid has been with us every step of the way. We have lost count of the number of phone calls we've made to Astrid with requests to 'run the numbers' or clarify something for us, and Astrid has always been there to assist. Astrid has proved not only knowledgeable on the lending process but also the buying and selling process as a whole. Her support has assisted us greatly in getting through what can be a stressful time. As clients who began our relationship some 10 years ago with our first purchase, we know that Astrid will continue to look after our needs well into the future and we highly recommend her and her team. Thanks, Astrid!
  • G.Smith - Travancore
    Astrid made the whole daunting process so easy at a time when so many other factors are adding to the stress levels. I would say to friends who were looking at purchasing property that they would be mad not to go through Loan Market for the finance.
  • S.Everett - Preston, Country Victoria
    My case was never going to be easy. No one wanted to give me a mortgage. I was too old and on a low income. It was a long and arduous road, but through dogged application to the task Astrid found me the mortgage I needed. Although there was probably not a lot in it for her, Astrid really went in to bat for me. My whole life has changed in the most positive way. I am now in my first home and so very grateful that I had Astrid Caddeo on my side to make this happen. The benefits of paying off my home go beyond the good feeling that comes from home ownership. I am no longer subject to the current, awful rental situation. My increased sense of security and comfort has had an unmeasurable positive effect on my life. I highly recommend Astrid Caddeo from Loan Market. I could not have had better, more diligent and friendly service. I wish Astrid continued good fortune in her business as she deserves all success that comes her way. Make Astrid Caddeo your first choice in Mortgage Broking, she's earned it.
  • Matthew L
    Loan Market made it a fantastic experience buying a house. Working with Astrid, the nearly six months of discussing finances, getting pre-approval, looking for houses and finally buying and getting settlement approved was seamless and actually enjoyable by the end! Astrid was great the entire way informing and guiding me through every step. Stress free!
  • S.Sarma - Tarneit
    We've been dealing with Astrid for a couple of years now. She's our go-to mortgage broker and a trusted advisor. She simplifies all the financial jargon and explains complex scenarios in an easy to understand language. She has been patient and eager to help despite not knowing if and when we were going to purchase. Always cheerful and a pleasure to deal with. I don't write very many reviews. But Astrid is a star and deserves a 5 star review. Highly Recommended.
  • R.D Wilken - Hughesdale
    Astrid was so friendly and a consummate professional. I felt that she was a partner in my journey from the time I first expressed interest in trying to access a home loan to settlement. Astrid helped me by asking the hard questions, ensuring I had the best information available to me, being very frank about my limitations and ultimately by making sure I got the best mortgage deal possible. I had the added complexity of a guarantee arrangement, which Astrid handled with perfect amounts of care and diplomacy, as well as made sure my families interests were protected throughout the process, which was vitally important to me. I cannot thank Astrid enough for all her guidance, support and work on my behalf.
  • J.F Gleeson - Warragul
    Astrid was wonderful. Very personable, knowledgeable and provided a great service. Thank you Astrid.
  • Natalie B - Fitzroy
    Astrid and her team provided me with the confidence I lacked in entering the real estate market. AND they've continued supporting me beyond the purchasing process. Ladies (& fellas) you want - no NEED - these guys on your side!
  • A. Barwell - Melbourne
    Thank you so, so much for everything you've done to get things over the line, I'm so grateful and so relieved that everything is settled now. The best part about working with you on this purchase has been the reassurance and confidence you've given me. When we hit a delay or refusal, your confidence in being able to find a solution really helped me to maintain mine. Because I'm not mathematically inclined, your taking the time to explain how the money worked and was distributed was really helpful. You were also easy to understand, didn't get bogged down in selling to me and just made the process straight forward and factual, and you (and Hayley) did what you said you'd do when you said you'd do it - something that so many people don't do! Thank you (and Hayley) so much for everything!
  • R.Winter - Brunswick
    Astrid went above and beyond to help me and my partner buy our first home...even when we asked for a 30-day settlement over the Easter long weekend - she got it done.
