I just want to say thank you for everything, you have all helped make our first investment property purchase a pleasure, if we decide to buy again we shall definitely give you guys a call

Thank you also from Ian, he’s normally the stressful one out of us both but you made it a breeze for him too!

Thank you Lia and David for making our home loan process effortless and something we did not need to stress about. For a loan that was not so straight forward everything was processed smoothly, we were always kept informed and we appreciate your help in making this part of the building process as easy as possible.

Miranda and Ben, October 2017


I have used you guys twice now for home loans both times. Thanks for helping my dreams come true! The bank wouldn’t even look at me as a single person, despite my current excellent financial position.    This time round was made more difficult by the fact that I was hospitalised for two weeks towards the end of the process, and you guys were very patient and understanding and caring towards my situation. Thanks for all your help

Very happy with the process and service offered, not the first time I have used GFG for my financing needs and won’t be my last. Thank you.

Patty and Lyle, August 2017


It was great to have the support from GFG.  It definitely took away a lot of the stress with the finance side of things. Thank you for all your assistance and we look forward to continuing to work with you.

Stephanie, August 2017


I found David very helpful, He explained things in depth as we went. He was patient with me until my financial situation was ready to go. I’d happily recommend David to other first home buyers.

Marika is always amazing to deal with! Fast, efficient, knowledgable, friendly and takes the time to explain every small detail in the most straightforward way.

A huge thank you to Wayne Stiles for his outstanding level of service, his professionalism and time management skills are second to none!

– Carmela & Enzo, June 2017


I had the pleasure of having Marika as my consultant for the purchase of my first property as an Investment. Marika guided me through the whole process, explained processes in the right amount of detail and was very pleasant to work with. Marika followed up on any questions or queries in a very timely manner. I am very satisfied with Marika’s efforts, and will be looking to enlist her services in the future.

My husband and I work full time, have small kids and run a small business after hours. We could never find the time to consolidate our loans to help get us ahead financially. We have found Geelong Financial Group, and David and Lia especially, invaluable to helping us improve our financial situation from their strategic advice in finding the right loans that suit our needs to being the conduit between us and the bank and completing all of the masses of paperwork required by the banks. We have been so happy with the results and can’t thank them enough. We highly recommend GFG to other families who wish to make positive changes to their financial situations.

I can honestly say, Jenni has been a life saver!!  I had no idea I was losing money on my Superannuation scheme and not only did she assist in finding a more suitable scheme, she made all the necessary changes required to rollover.  Jenni also informed me that I was not covered by my superannuation scheme should I fall ill or was made injured, as I initially thought.  Jenni again researched Life Insurances and made this happen with no fuss whereby I am now comfortably covered.  Jenni is extremely communicative in following up and keeps me abreast of all updates in both my super and life insurance.  I would highly recommend Jenni for any Super / Life Insurance requirements – she’s an absolute gun!

Wayne – GFG designed a loan plan and presented it in a format that was easy to comprehend and suited our financial requirements. The loan process was smooth and GFG communicated with all parties, from the real estate agent to the conveyancer, which assisted in a smooth transition of the property. Highly recommend GFG.

– Dale & Maria, April 2017


My business partner and I were both very happy with  friendly and professional  service provided by Leigh and the team at Geelong Financial Group. Leigh always made herself available with any questions we had and her attention to detail was impeccable. We would recommend GFG to any businesses or individuals requiring assistance with loans etc

– Dani, March 2017


Thank you very much Marika and the team at GFG. Marika, you turned the potentially daunting prospect of buying a first house into a manageable and achievable goal. The process from start to finish was well organised and structured and you were always so willing to help and go the extra mile. Look forward to continue working with the GFG team into the future.

– Taylor, March 2017


Wayne as always was awesome in getting everything organised and sorted out. Both he and Jessica were always available and ready to help as well as extremely easy to work with, and always professional. They made the whole borrowing money to buy a property experience simple, stress free and easy. Thank you so much.

I can highly recommend Wayne Stiles for his knowledge, professionalism and excellent service. Wayne assisted me, as a nervous first home buyer, with my first mortgage some years ago and I was pleased that he was able to assist me again when it came time to finance my next purchase, and I look forward to dealing with Wayne again in the future.

– Tamara, 2016


We have used GFG for two construction loans now and we could not be more impressed with David and his team. David has always been accessible if we had any questions and always took time to make sure we fully understood the process. David always kept us in the loop and was an amazing advocate for us. We have recommended him to friends and family, and wouldnt hesitate to use his service again.

– Sarah & Thomas, 2016


A big thank you to Marika! She made my life so much easier as I had no idea what to do going through the whole process. I could not have asked for anything more of her! Her customer service was above and beyond all expectations. Marika is a major asset to GFG and I could not thank her enough.

– Paul, 2016


The whole process was a breeze the staff from GFG are amazing especially Lia, nothing was too much trouble plus my questions were always answered and the follow up was exceptional; with out a doubt GFG are leaders in their field.

– Joy, 2016


Marika Johnson is excellent! The reassurance, her expertise and her knowledge has been outstanding. Cannot recommend her highly enough!!

– Diyana & Fillipo, 2016


A whole new level of customer service! Marika is amazing at what she does and provided us with the best customer service we have ever had. Nothing was too much trouble and she worked so hard to get our loan processed before Christmas. She kept us up to date with every step and explained the whole process to us. We will be recommending her to everyone we know. Thank you Marika!!!

– Megan & Robert, 2016


Dear Simon and Nicole, I just wanted to Thank both of you (and the rest of your team) for all the advice, effort and work that you have done helping Amy and I with our last project. It has been an enjoyable and stress free process.  For this, I give full credit to you guys. It is nice to know that we are well on our way to achieving our goal of a financially secure and comfortable retirement.  I know that we would not be, if it weren’t for you. I truly look forward to working  with you again in the future. Thanks Again

– Richard & Amy, 2015


David was great to deal with. He went out of his way to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible. Overall he made the whole experience very stress-free from a finance perspective. Highly recommend GFG to any potential First Home Buyers.

–  Paige & Nicholas,  2015


We would like to thank Wayne Stiles for his perseverance in getting the right loan for us. Our situation was difficult due to us being self employed and having an existing small business loan. Wayne’s efforts have enabled us to make some home improvements and add a bit more enjoyment to our lives. – Damien & Fiona, 2015


Marika, what a sensational lady!! Thankyou Marika, Elissa & GFG for helping us refinance and apply for a loan rolled into one. Seemless from your end even with the multitude of challenges we presented. Thank you Simone Sheridan for the recommendation. We will be back! And we will be recommending. – Peter & Michelle, 2015


As always GFG has delivered the most efficient service to us on our 4th property transaction. They have made the whole process run smoothly and hassle free for us. Both Simon and Nicole made all the calls and correspondence which always frees us up and saved us from the run around and stress that comes with the coordination of buying property. We Thankyou both so much and really appreciate everything that you have done for us. – Wayne & Sharron, 2015


Marika was the reason I came to Geelong Financial Group. She is so efficient and I never had to worry about a thing.  –  Sharlini, 2015


We found Marika to be both personable and approachable as well as professional and organised. No question was left unanswered, emails were responded to at any hour of the day or night. We valued her honest, experience and knowledge that was always relevant to our position and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with her.  –  Paul & Tania, 2015


Marika’s positive and approachable nature made Brad and I feel comfortable throughout the whole process. We are a young couple striving to build a property portfolio and Marika has filled us with confidence and trust to achieve our personal goals. Geelong Financial Group (Marika) always made us feel that we were of highest priority and it is for this reason that we will continue to seek advise from your service as well as recommending friends and family. Thank you Marika and Elissa.  –  Jessica & Brad, 2015


It was a big decision for us to take the step to purchase an investment property. Marika was so easy to deal with and made the process clear. Because of the support provided by GFG, we are hoping to continue growing our portfolio. We are so grateful for your services.  Jess & Andy B, 2014


I was very happy when I found out that Wayne had been employed at GFG, after receiving great service and advice from him at his previous bank employer.   At GFG, Wayne was able to take our original loan and restructure it, allowing us to save on interest repayments with a better rate, but also set the loan up so we can achieve our 5 year goal of owning our first investment property.   Thanks again Wayne for your trusted advice and great service.   –  Ben & Kim H,  2014


Marika was outstanding! As a first home buyer I was a little bewildered by the whole process, but Marika was there the whole way through and really empowered me as a young person to enter the market. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I will definitely be telling all of my friends to use GFG, especially Marika!! – Georgia B, 2014


Marika went above and beyond her duties and was just outstanding, fantastic service. – Julian H & Sarah G, 2014


We would like to thank Marika and the team for the work she put into our recent loan. She made the process easy; she had the answers to all of our questions on. We would highly recommend her services to family and friends. – Glen & Leanne D, 2014


Marika and Elissa went out of their way to make the whole process as seem less as possible for us. Their experiences were very helpful and valuable. – Anthony & Yvette F, 2014


Simon and the team have been, and continue to be, amazing. Whenever we hear of anyone thinking of going down this avenue, we strongly recommend Geelong Financial Group, but are still amazed at how many people wish to undertake it themselves, and later find out their structure is not working and they are constantly adding cash from their pocket to meet rental payments etc. And yes, we still tell them it’s not too late to seek advice from you! – Julie B, 2014


I couldn’t be happier with the team at GFG, especially Marika and Leigh. I was pleasantly surprised at how hard working, informative and knowledgeable they were. I’ll be able to pay off my loan a lot sooner than I ever dreamed thanks to Marika. They certainly exceeded my expectations! – Michelle I, 2014


Committed staff who made you feel like your loan was as important to them as it was for you. – Shane & Jessica S, 2014

Always positive and happy to help. – Daniel F, 2014

A big thank you to David and the team at the Geelong Financial Group for making the process of financial application & financial approval a smooth and seamless experience for the purchase of our new home. Your advice and guidance was greatly appreciated and we would highly recommend your services to anyone. Thanks again. – Justin H & Nicole T, 2014


We felt quite intimidated by the process of obtaining a mortgage. However, David was so helpful in guiding us to select a lender and work through all the documents. He really was invaluable. – Danielle A & Nicholas M, 2014


Our experience with GFG was amazing. We went from financially struggling, to the prospect of having a lovely, financially stress free Christmas, in only a few weeks. I can’t recommend GFG highly enough! I wish we’d gotten ourselves organised sooner to talk to them. – Ian & Kathryn M, 2013


Going through an emotionally difficult time, I was eager, yet apprehensive about borrowing and purchasing a property. Marika Johnson was an absolute angel throughout this process. Her professional yet personal nature and approach was extremely appreciated. – Susan-Gaye M, 2013


What would have we done without the help of the GFG in the settlement of our loan! With a settlement of 30 days they were able to assist with our finances and obtain a competitive rate on our home loan in such a short time frame. Although it was not an enjoyable experience due to many obstacles that were encounted along the way, without the advice and support of GFG we doube we would have settled on time. The staff is true professionals providing a high level of service and I would not hesitate in recommending them to family and friends. Looking forward to working with Simon and the team for many years to come. – James & Beth C, 2013


They made remortgaging our property a breeze. We received great advice and our additional funds were in our account  faster than we imagined. Many thanks! – Edward & Kirsty H, 2013


David was one of the best professionals I’ve ever dealt with. His service allowed me to avoid the nonsense and just get the result I wanted quickly and efficiently. He truly understands what the client wants and how to get it done with minimal hassle. – Christopher M, 2013


Not only did we get the best rate, but the service provided is ongoing, simple to understand and friendly. Thanks a bunch! – Steven M & Hannah M, 2013


As a First Home Buyer the process of purchasing a house seemed very confusing and a bit overwhelming; what’s land transfer, how do I get a stamp duty discount, what are adjustments? So many questions! Having GFG to talk me through the process and basically organise everything was fantastic. Settlement went through without a hitch. – Katharine M, 2013


Amazing what more can we say! The service was excellent, the staff were all friendly and efficient. It was so simple and worry free as we were always explained everything as we went along. Fantastic! – Carmel R, 2013


Geelong Financial Group made the process of buying our first home easy. They answered all our queries and got back to us really quickly with things. They were happy to meet us out of business hours which was great in order to fit in with our work commitments. Our house settled today and it all went through without a hitch – thank you for all your work and making it all so easy. – Kate A & Lee S, 2013


I had been given a finance quote when I was upgrading my truck. Although I would prefer to deal locally I know the people at GFG so asked them for a quote. I was surprised at the deal they were able to get me as it was so much cheaper. I will go straight to them next time knowing I’d be getting the best deal. – Kevin H, 2013


We had wanted to borrow money for sometime for a renovation on our home. The thought of having to deal with the banks and their requirements was a headache and so we kept putting it off. David Lolait made the whole process completely painless. Wish we hadn’t waited so long! – Amanda & Andrew W, 2013


We have used GFG on a number of occasions including purchasing our first house 7 years ago to refinancing the mortgage for a better deal and our recent experience of financing our new car they always kept me up to date and I even felt they went over and above their obligations to make things happen. I would recommend GFG to anyone who is in need of financial assistance. – Blake R, 2013


GFG are just great! Very professional but also very friendly and a relaxed atmosphere! Highly recommend them to anyone, family, friends, even work colleges. – Samantha & Michael K, 2013


First used GFG, services to finance an investment property and streamline loans and finances. I was very happy with the service I received and did not hesitate to use their services again when purchasing a property to live in interstate. – Phil Q, 2013


David was amazing. This was our first home & found it was such an easy process as David explained everything in terms we understood, not once did we feel we didn’t understand. I highly recommend this team & would certainly use them again in future. Thanks so much. – Craig & Elaine M, 2013


I have now been using Geelong Financial for about 5 years now. I’ve used other institutions before and never have I had this level of service. They truly have the customers’ interests at heart and that is something which you need when trying to build a good property portfolio. Thank You Guys. – Myles J, 2013

I had many hiccups in setting up a new loan because of other existing mortgages, however the staff at GFG dealt with the banks for me and didn’t give up until I was able to get my loan approved, and at a very good rate.  Thanks GFG. – Anthony A, 2013


I have been a client with GFG for quite a few years now and have been so impressed with their professionalism and product knowledge.  I have been assisted with the management of superannuation, managed fund, the purchase of investment properties and also more recently with property development and the purchase of a vehicle. They are an amazing team! – Alison G, 2013


I could not be more satisfied with the service provided by David from Geelong Financial Group. He made the whole process an absolute breeze and look forward to many more dealings with the company in the future. – Dean M, 2013


After 3 months with another mortgage broker and no sign of them getting any mortgage arranged, GFG was reccommended, an appointment made and within 10 days I had a pre-approved loan, thanks to David and the team at GFG.  Great service, straight forward no stress and every question I had was answered without asking.  Would use and recommend GFG again without hesitation. – Joy A, 2013


We have been blown away by the professionalism and service provided by Simon, Tash and the team at GFG.  We were hesitant to purchase our first investment property, but they had the tools to show us how, and made it happen for us – they took us from looking at buying our “first” to obtaining three properties in one year. WOW! – Matt H, 2013


I have been using GFG for 8 years now for both my residential and investment finance. The staff provide an array of finance possibilities and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for property finance. – Craig M, 2012


David has been pivotal in the purchase of our first two property and sale of one.  From initial advice and education, through to handover of the keys, the whole process has been simple and stress free every time, due to David’s professional and caring approach.  I have, and will continue to highly recommend David to friends and family. – Ross G, 2012


GFG exhibited a wonderful example of excellent customer service, every business could take a valuable lesson from them. The process from start to finish was relatively pain free! – Michelle B, 2012

We found the Geelong Financial Group wonderful to work with. Recently we refinanced our home at the same time as changing over the land title and with the help of GFG managed this with minimum hassle.  Nothing was too much trouble and the GFG Team addressed every concern and question straight away.  We are really happy with the way our finances are set up now and this has given us more time to just enjoy life.  Thanks to GFG for all your hard work and look forward to working with you again on another project. – Misty W


Thanks again Hugh for all your fantastic advice. Since we first chatted to you everything we have touched has turned to gold. You have no idea how positive we are feeling now that things have turned around. – Brad & Felicity S
