Loan Market Mortgage Broker servicing Darwin, Palmerston, Stuart Park and surrounding suburbs

About Bren Rodda

I am one half of a husband-and-wife mortgage broking team dedicated to ensuring our clients can work with their preferred mortgage broker to achieve home ownership - it's a fact that some people don't mind who helps them as long as the service is good, but some people do prefer to work with either a male or female specifically (as well as getting good service). It's all about being comfortable AND well-informed.

I listen to what my clients want and look for the home loan that is right for their needs, helping them to achieve home ownership or increase their personal wealth. The best part of my job is getting people that think they are getting a good home loan deal an EVEN BETTER ONE!!!!

Get a Home Loan Pre-approval

I like to pre-approve as many clients as I can for their home loan, as there are so many auctions taking place in Darwin that getting a home loan pre-approval is just good common sense. The other reason for pre-approving my clients is, lenders are constantly changing their home loan options, and sometimes a pre-approval is the difference between securing a great home loan product or missing out as it gets pulled from the market. Just because you have pre-approval doesn't mean you are locked into a particular home loan product or lender, and we can reassess if it is still a good loan at the time of purchase.

Home Loans for Fly in Fly out Jobs

I have organised a lot of home loans for people with fly in fly out jobs, e.g. those in the mining industry. It is such a fantastic service for them as we can meet up just the once and then organise absolutely everything for them all the way to settlement of their home loan. Follow up phone calls and emails provide peace-of-mind for them, letting them know that everything is all under control and that the home loan application process hasn't stopped just because they are not there.

First Home Buyers

It may sound obvious, but for first home buyers, spending the time to go over everything so they are comfortable in choosing a home loan for what is likely the biggest purchase of their life is an essential part of my home loan service. With banks and lenders now requiring more towards the deposit than in recent years, and the property price growth in the NT over the past few years, I can assist people with little or no deposit to get into their new property with initiatives such family guaranteed loans.


I was referred to Bren by a friend. They but in a good word saying he will assess my situation, discuss my needs and look at many different lenders for me. He calculated and explained the costs involved in purchasing, what finances I had and what I will need. Very, very helpful. As a first home buyer I was very satisfied with Bren's service, he is very friendly and our meeting times where at my convenience. I would definitely recommend Bren to my friends and family, I was comfortable and impressed that he found the most suitable product for me. One hour with Bren was more beneficial than the 12 hours I spent researching the internet beforehand.

Property Investors and Investment Loans

Property investors are not likely to be making their first ever property purchase, but regardless of whether this is your their second or tenth property, it is still important - in some ways in fact more important - to make sure your bank or lender is providing you with a good investment loan option or package. Loan structure is an essential component of successful property investment and matching your loans to you investment goals and strategy is a key service I provide.

A friend of mine had dealt with Bren for the finance on his property and recommended I call and have a chat. My goal was to get a competitive rate which I got, but it was the service and follow up that I received that really sold me. The distance wasn't a problem at all when dealing with Bren; even the local bank manager told me after the loan had settled that he was a pleasure to deal with. My sister is looking at buying a house soon and she will definitely be using Bren. Thanks Again.

Home Loans for Defence Personnel

I get a lot of Defence Personnel, e.g. Army, Air Force, Navy, etc. Even though they are eligible for home loans and discounts through DEFcredit, quite often I have been able to get them a better, cheaper and more flexible home loan for their situation. It pays to look outside of the square instead of jumping into a one-size-fits-all deal.

Home Loan Solutions for Professionals

I have organised home loans for a broad range of professionals with special requirements, including miners, teachers, business owners, the disabled, people on pensions, defence personnel, government employees and contractors. A key component of working with such groups of people is a very flexible home loan service that focuses on communication in several formats, including face-to-face, by phone, email and fax.

Bren was quite knowledgably very approachable and kept me informed at all times. He made the whole process smoother and easy to understand.

A friend suggested that I try a broker to get my loan and your service helped me greatly. I'm not sure if I would have secured a loan by applying myself or got the loan that best suited my needs. I am extremely satisfied with your services, without your help I would probably be still renting and not living in my own home. I am very happy that I chose to use a broker and feel lucky to get you as mine. Your service was very professional and helped me understand what was best for me. I enjoyed dealing with you and will have no hesitation in going back in future if I require your services again. I have already referred you to a friend.
