Since dealing with Tamara (Johnston Grocke Mortgage Broker) earlier in the year I have spoken to a number of friends/family and recommended Johnston Grocke for their financial/lending needs.

Johnston Grocke Client 

"I have been a client of Johnston Grocke since 1995 (although my late husband was a client before this). I have always found them reliable, approachable and appreciated their care & respect for me as a individual. I can get on with living to the full knowing that my money & my values are safe with them."

 

Dr Igwe Nwachuku - Johnston Grocke Client

"I was first introduced to this firm of Mortgage and finance specialist a little over five years ago. At the time I was weighing my options with regards to buying/building a home. The challenges at the time were choice of location- city or country?  And finance for the venture. Being a relatively new migrant to Australia at the time, these were indeed daunting choices.

Adam and his team guided me through every stage of the journey; starting from “a preparation to purchase strategy” to a successful home loan with which I built my beautiful new home in Adelaide. More recently, they have facilitated additional funding to finance some alterations we decided to do on the original building. A special “icing on the cake”, was a waiver of the Mortgage lenders Insurance.

At every stage my interaction with this team of professionals has been very fulfilling. They have my unreserved endorsement."

Ann-Marie Zagotsis - Johnston Grocke Client

"I was quite reluctant to meet with a broker. My friend had told me some real horror stories about her experiences with brokers. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I utilised the services of Johnston Grocke.

They didn’t just help me buy my home, but assisted me with my budgeting and ensured I achieved my financial goals. 

The process that the team went through, from the very first meeting to the settlement of my home, was nothing short of outstanding. It really made everything easy and their service was exceptional. The bank was slow and disinterested in my application and if it wasn’t for my broker pushing the bank, my property would not have settled on time.

Even after my property had settled, the people at Johnston Grocke have been great, regularly checking in to see how everything is going and to see if I had any questions."
