Have you decided that this is the year that you stop renting and get yourself into a place of your own?
An important part of the home buying process is having finance in place that suits your needs and lifestyle. Whether you are currently looking, or are just starting to think about buying, it is important to have an expert on your side to answer your questions and help you find the right home loan.
That’s where I can help! I have made a career of managing the finance process for my clients, allowing them to concentrate on finding the right property.
Whether buying, selling or looking to refinance, I support and educate my clients, enabling them to make sound financial decisions and achieve their goals. I take an impartial view of hundreds of loans from over 30 lenders. I then assist with the application paperwork, and then liaise with solicitors, real estate agents and lenders through to settlement. I strive to give you the insider’s edge. I talk to lenders daily, and knows the niche areas that each operate in, which lenders are processing applications quickly, and which ones are competing strongly on interest rates.
With official interest rates at historical lows and the potential of more rate cuts on the way, now may be an opportune time to look at how much mortgage repayments would be compared to the amount you are currently paying in rent. Use these calculators to help put your budget together.

Home loans - think long term
The majority of my business is First Home Owners and clients looking to use equity in their home for investment purposes. I specialise in finding solutions for clients to firstly help eliminate their non-deductible household debt, and then to build wealth through investment. Once the relationship begins, my aim is to keep the customer for life and assist them, their friends and their families with all financial transactions in the future.
We recently finalised the purchase of a new home, and although we entered into the market with a degree of trepidation, in hindsight we didn't need to. Our best decision was to utilise the services of Michael Roberts. He built our trust instantly and after spending a good deal of time listening to & considering our personal circumstances, he went on to recommend a loan package that took all these into account - and we didn't have to set foot in one bank! It was a great feeling to know we had someone on our side dealing with the lenders and taking care of all the running around and paperwork. Simon & Kaylene Rollin, Orange NSW
I have over 13 years experience in the financial services industry and have been providing professional mortgage solutions for clients since 2005. In that time, I have built a large network of clients from all parts of Australia by providing personal and professional service and maintaining contact after loan settlement.
I previously managed InvestSMART Financial Services, an online research and transaction site that provides discounted access to financial products.
We dealt with Michael for over year before we purchased our first home. He was so incredibly patient with us and we couldn't have done it without him. His experience, expertise and incredible service helped us navigate through all the processes required when purchasing a home. We would have no hesitation to recommend Michael to anyone in the market for a home loan. Thanks Mick for all your help. We absolutely love our new home! Virginia Clayton and Haydn Smyth, Clontarf, NSW

Based in the Manly area of Sydney, I mainly service the Northern beaches suburbs including Balgowlah, Seaforth, Allambie, Harbord, Curl Curl, Dee Why, Mosman, Neutral Bay, Cremorne, Collaroy, Narrabeen, Cromer, Beacon Hill, Brookvale, Frenchs Forest, Forestville and Narraweena. I also have clients as far away as Newcastle, Brisbane, Perth, Yass, Parkes and Orange and have even helped arrange finance for clients in Singapore. I am able to service my clients wherever they may be and will travel to help them out as required.
Michael Roberts provided us with professional and efficient service and advice on every occasion we dealt with him. The purchase our first home was quite a scary experience, but was made so much easier with Michael's help and experience. We were so pleased with the service provided that we are currently in the process of using his services again for finance on an Investment Property. Nicole and Patrick Doyle, Newcastle, NSW
Over the last couple of years, my business has both donated to, and helped raise money for, several worthwhile causes including the Cancer Council, Movember and the 'World's Greatest Shave'.
I just thought I would thank you Michael so very much for assisting us with our new home loan with the Commonwealth Bank. I have found your service to be second to none, and the assistance you have given us through the process has enabled us to obtain a far superior product than our previous home loan, and saved us a lot of time with research on which home loan best suited our particular needs. I particularly appreciated having you deal with the bank on our behalf from the outset through to completion. Once again, thank you for finding us a great product and enabling us to far better manage our finances. Tonia and Kevin Eaton, Warner, Qld
