Loan Market Mortgage Broker servicing Annadale, Glebe, Newtown and surrounding suburbs
About Sharon Clarkson
With over 15 years' experience in the mortgage industry, I have a wealth of knowledge about lending processes, lenders and their products. Whether you're looking to purchase your first home, that investment property, need bridging finance, or a self-managed super fund loan, I can assist you through the loan process from application to settlement. My career started as a credit analyst so I have tips to help obtain your loan approval.
In 2007, I decided to start my own mortgage broking business as I wanted to provide my clients with the very best customer service and duty of care. My office was originally based in Neutral Bay servicing the Lower North Shore of Sydney, however I've recently relocated to the Inner West, now based in the heart of Annandale.
I always say, 'No question is ever a silly question'. It's my job to make sure that all my clients understand everything we discuss during an appointment.
Finance Tip: Never let the cheapest interest rate decide your home loan. You need to look at and compare all the home loan features. Working on a five year plan is the most effective way of getting the best mortgage. Entry, exit and ongoing fees may be the key features that a borrower needs to consider in the short term so the interest rate may not be the deciding factor.
First home buyers
Buying your first home is one of the most stressful things you will do in your life. I help my clients through the preapproval process so you know your borrowing and purchase price limits. This eases the stress and makes you feel comfortable in making an offer to purchase.
Non-residents, expats and foreign investors
The process of obtaining finance and purchasing property from overseas can be quite complex, and it's important to enlist the services of a mortgage broker who has the skill and experience to make this happen for you. I regularly assist non-resident buyers, and can explain stamp-duty, the types of loans available and the Foreign Investment Review Board requirements to you.
Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF)
Is a SMSF something that you've thought about? Have you wondered what you would need to do or the costs involved setting up your own personal fund? My associates and I can assist you through the maze and provide you with all the necessary information.
Whether you're self employed or running a small business, I can assist with all your business finance including commercial mortgages, motor vehicle and equipment leasing. With my no fuss, solutions-oriented attitude, I can satisfy your business needs.
Customer service is one of the most important aspects of my business as I treat all my customers as I would like to be treated. I base my business on customer retention and word of mouth provides a lot of my new referrals.
"I had known Sharon Clarkson for a few years, so when it came time to purchase a property and get finance approved, she was my first and only point of contact. Sharon's experience, professionalism and support were outstanding. I feel Sharon went beyond her duty of a Mortgage Broker, making the process of purchasing stress free and effortless. I would certainly recommend Sharon to anyone looking to obtain finance."
Joanne B from Cremorne
"I first spoke to Sharon at an Open Home just to get a second opinion. When my probation period ended and due to the fact Sharon was the only broker who kept in regular contact, I decided to deal with her. For almost a year Sharon and I were communicating, through phone calls and emails, advising me when better deals were available and showing me better ways to save a larger deposit. When I finally did find my home, Sharon in my opinion went above and beyond helping me in every way she could to secure the property. Since buying and using Sharon's services, I have passed her number on to some of my friends who were looking to buy property."
Mr T Johnson from Wollongong
"Sharon is a consummate professional who demonstrates expertise in her field and goes above and beyond to deliver to her clients. Sharon's experience and attention to detail enables her to anticipate and address potential issues before they become a problem. Her work practices are efficient, she does not waste anyone's time. Always a pleasure to deal with, highly recommended!"

Justice of Peace and other affiliations
I am a Justice of Peace which helps many people feel more comfortable that the document signing process has been managed appropriately and that the documents are explained properly. Especially when the mortgage is a refinance and the borrower does not want the extra expense of seeking legal counsel.
I am a member of the MFAA (Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia) which upholds brokers to the highest values and standards. I also hold a Certificate IV in Financial Services which is an ongoing educational program that makes sure brokers are abreast of the ever changing lending market.
