    Using a mortgage broker can sometimes be a hit and miss process. Luckily for me, I came across Lauren Eakins on a google search and all the reviews are accurate.Lauren guided me through the mortgage process with enthusiasm and eagerness, finding great deals that suited my circumstances.

    Lauren and the team have once again helped us secure the best available loan and rate for our mortgage. Seamlessly settled just before Christmas almost 3 years to the day since our first home settled. We wouldn’t trust anyone else! Five stars all the way! We have already referred multiple people and will continue to do so. Merry Christmas to the Eakins Finance and Insurance team.

    Outstanding service, the team at Eakins made the entire process of buying a new home as smooth and stress-free as possible. No question too dumb, no detail too small. I’d happily recommend them to friends and family.

    MARKET THOUGHTS 2022 - 2023

    By Lauren Eakins

    The year has seen continued strong sales in the FNQ region for property. For the latter part of the year, whilst rates have continued to affect the top end of clients borrowing power, the price of property has been stable. We believe the level is held up by pent up demand and a reduction in the number of listings for this time of year. The medium term outlook continues to be strong for houses under $600,000 as both investors and owner occupiers vie for the same stock. The tight rental market supports rental yield and assists investors rising costs of capital with increase to rental prices.

    Mortgage refinancing made easy

    Applying for a new home loan or switching loans is very time-consuming. You got to choose your provider, answer their many questions, supply evidence of your financial situation, provide 100% identification and fill in long applications. It’s a very daunting task.

    We understand how stressful it is to deal with mortgage lenders and banks, so we take the burden off your shoulders. We deal with this process on your behalf so you can focus on finding the right home for your needs.

    The key benefits of our services

    • In addition to being able to access products that are not typically available to you as an individual, we also assist you with market research and happy to provide our own opinion on Cairn’s real estate market condition.
    • If you need more confidence with financial matters, we help you understand the terms of loan options available to you, including the loan conditions that may seem confusing at first.
    • Rather than needing to deal with an off-shore call center or bank staff at a branch, you will have your own dedicated personal broker from start to finish. Responsive and always within reach of a phone call.
    • As mortgage brokers, we can bypass banks’ impersonal and lengthy retail customer processes and deal directly with dedicated staff to administer your loan. Essentially, speeding up the loan approval process.
