Your Trusted Bendigo Mortgage Brokers

Whether you’re buying your first home or a new home, securing a personal loan or looking at commercial or asset finance, we know the loan process can be overwhelming. We are here to guide you to a worry-free mortgage or loan. 

You’ll be sifting through hundreds of loan options, dealing with a different person (or robot) every time you ask a question, filling in pages and pages of documents and there are the banks, lawyers, surveyors to deal with too. It’s complicated, we hear you.

We’re here to make sure you have choice and the opportunity to secure the best loan for your circumstances, minus the complication and stress.

A team of trusted, experienced and professional mortgage finance brokers. Our difference is not in a process, or an incentive or gimmick, it’s in our relentless commitment to open and honest communication with every Proactive client.

We work for you – not the lenders. We’ll make sure you’re informed, updated and confident about what’s going to happen next. No surprises, just genuine care and efficient action (and perhaps a warm hug/elbow tap once your finance is approved!).

It's been a pleasure dealing with Proactive Finance Group. They made refinancing so much easier. They are on the ball and very patient, helping us through which is now a painful process, with the amount of red tape required to refinance.

After not having the best experience with our previous broker, my Partner and myself decided to engage the Proactive finance team to refinance our house, then after selling that house last year the team helped us secure finance for our new build. Both times working with the Proactive Finance team have been nothing but a pleasure. Communication has been fantastic throughout the build and payments were submitted strait away. If your after a broker who can sort you out no matter your situation I highly recommend having a chat to Natalie, Jedd and Hayley.

The Big Question – How Does Getting a Mortgage Through a Broker Work?

Getting a mortgage through a broker involves several key steps designed to streamline the process and find the most suitable mortgage product for you, as the borrower’s needs. Here’s a concise breakdown:

  1. Initial Consultation: The process begins with an initial consultation where you provide essential financial information. This helps us understand your needs and preferences.
  2. Assessment and Pre-Approval: Based on the provided information, we assess your financial profile to determine eligibility for various mortgage products. If eligible, we may issue a pre-approval letter.
  3. Market Research and Comparison: We conduct market research to identify mortgage options from different lenders/banks. We compare interest rates, terms, and conditions to find competitive offers aligned with your goals.
  4. Application Submission: Once a mortgage option is selected, we assist with completing the application and gather required documentation. We submit the application on your behalf, to the chosen lender/bank.
  5. Negotiation and Advocacy: Throughout the underwriting process, we negotiate terms, addresses concerns raised by the lender, and advocate for your interests.
  6. Closing and Funding: We coordinate the closing process, ensuring all paperwork is completed accurately and on time. We work with relevant parties to facilitate a smooth closing, and once approved, the loan funds are disbursed.
  7. Ongoing Support: Even after closing, we provide ongoing support. We may assist with refinancing options in the future, answer questions about loan terms, or offer advice on managing mortgage payments effectively.

In summary, working with a mortgage broker offers borrowers access to a wider range of loan options, personalised guidance, and expert negotiation skills. We simplify the mortgage process, empowering you to make informed decisions about your home or asset financing.
