THE <br>PROCESS!

Highly recommend working with Mike.So knowledgeable, prompt, efficient and helpful.As a first home buyer it can all be a bit overwhelming but with Mike on your team it’s way less stressful. Thanks Mike - you were such a big help 😊
Mike helped us recently refinance our property to undertake renovations. He worked really hard to get us the best possible options. Walked us through the process in an easy to understand and professional way. Mike was super responsive and worked hard to get it all sorted within the tight timeframes. Would 100% recommend Mike and Connect Me mortgages. Thanks again. Much appreciated.
Mike was a great help during our property buying journey. Mike was a great communicator especially in regards to getting in touch and explaining the options we had in front of us in a way we could understand easily. We got caught in the new lending criteria and Mike ensured we had all bases covered, come approval time things went very smoothly! Highly recommend on all fronts
We were first introduced to Mike from Connect Me Mortgages back in 2018 when we were in the process of buying our first home. Since then he has been by our side when we've had our loans come off fixed rates, or needed some help with a mortgage top up to work on renovations. Our experience has always been really positive and professional, and it's made a big difference to what can be a stressful process on your own. We would recommend to anyone wanting to buy or re-finance to go through Connect Me, as the support from a good broker is so valuable.
Mike is very knowledgeable and helpful. He will guide you through the whole process and let you know what your next steps are, making the whole process stress free.
I can't recommend Mike enough, we fell in love with a house and Mike helped us get it! The process to put in our offer was very time sensitive so we needed his help quickly. Mike was always quick to respond and worked incredibly efficiently to help us put in an offer in an extremely short time period. We are so grateful that he acted in this way for us and it made all difference! He's very thorough and you know he's really on your team to get the best result.
Unbelievably helpful and patient. Thanks a million Mike!
Brodie helped us with securing our first mortgage and I couldn’t be more pleased with the effort he put into this. He was very easy to deal with, was always easy to contact which resulted in excellent communication, professionalism, and most of all a high level of commitment always! Brodie is very knowledgeable around many aspects and made the home buying journey a breeze! Couldn’t recommend him enough! Worked round the clock to get it done. Brodie, Thank you so much. Our family can’t wait to move into our first home!
Emma Johnston was brilliant to deal with. She is really knowledgeable and insightful to our needs. Emma made the refinancing/restricting process so easy, quick and seamless, and got us such a great result! I would happily recommend her services to everyone, no matter how simple or complex your needs are, she will smash it out of the park.
EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE WHICH SAVED US $800 EVERY 4 WEEKS ON OUR MORTGAGE PAYMENTS. We cannot recommend Emma Johnston - Mortgage Broker at Connect Me Mortgages enough -or speak more highly of the exceptional service she recently provided to me and my husband which saved us over $800 every 4 weeks on our home loan for a period of 2 years.My husband and I moved to NZ 4 years ago and went to our (BNZ) bank last year for help to finance a home loan to build our new home. We were given a "special discounted rate" of 4.88% interest by our current bank as a construction loan which we did not question.When we were recommended Emma by my work colleague at the beginning of this year - she advised us that we should have been eligible for a Blue Print to Build Scheme - which would see us receive a discount of 2.88% on our monthly mortgage payments for 2 years. Emma arranged for our home loan to be transferred to a provider who provided this scheme (our current bank didn't). Emma took care of all the paperwork and negotiation with the new lender, ANZ, and kept us fully informed throughout the process of changing our loan over. Emma was always contactable and quick in her responses to any queries we had. With Emma's help our loan was transferred saving us over $800 every four weeks for the next two years. Emma's help has ensured that over the next two years we will be paying a total of $20,800 less in our interest payments. Mind-blowing and we cannot thank her enough. Needless to say we most certainly will have Emma as our mortgage broker for life.
Brodie helped us in securing the mortgage for our first home. It couldn't be as easy as this. Brodie brought the best deals to us in a quick timeframe. He was very professional and fully met our expectations. Would highly recommend Brodie for his services 👌
Brodie Sadgrove from ConnectMe Mortgages is approachable, patient and resourceful with every house we sent to him - and we came across heaps. He answered all of our questions and pointed us to the right people if we were struggling with different aspects of house hunting e.g. insurance, builder's report, etc. We definitely felt more confident in our search and we knew he had our back.He advocated for us and was very pro-active with communicating with the bank, even in times of short-notice on our part due to it being a seller's market. We have lost out on several houses before this one, but we were able to remain hopeful due to his help and guidance.He made our search as smooth and as efficient as possible by explaining things in layman terms. He also provided a wealth of knowledge especially to us as First-Home Buyers.He helped us get our dream house after 2 months of solid searching and viewings. Even in finalizing our mortgage and sorting out everything before settlement - he was there every step of the way.We definitely couldn't have done it without Brodie as our advisor and I will be personally recommending him to everyone I know.If you're a FHB or someone who's unsure about what a mortgage advisor can do for you, contact Brodie and you won't regret it! Thank you Brodie!
Faifili Levave was incredibly patient, methodical and helpful with my loan request. He was always courteous, professional and I felt he had my best interests at heart. Thank you so much for your assistance with my complicated situation!
A friend recommended we talk to Mike at Connect Me Mortgages to arrange a somewhat complicated multi-generational joint ownership type of mortgage situation on the purchase of our first home, and he proved to be a great guy to deal with. Very clear, responsive, and efficient, and got us a good result. Would recommend.
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages helped us secure a good mortgage for purchase of our first home in New Zealand. We have received a very professional service and excellent advice. Mike made sure we understand all the options, and shared useful links explaining how offset and other types of mortgages work. We felt well informed and confident when signing the documents. Communication was excellent throughout, thanks again!
Mike was an absolute pleasure to deal with. As first home buyers we had a lot of questions and he was always happy to answer them through an email or phone call. He was extremely professional helped us understand the process of buying a house and structuring our mortgage to fit our goals.
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages is absolutely amazing. Very responsive and informative in helping us secure lending.Thanks heaps Mike we look forward to doing more business with you in the future:)
We came to knowing of Connect Mortgages at the hardest season of our lives. We had just lost our mum and months later we were looking to buy a house. They’re very attentive, professional and gave us sound advise. We had no idea what we were doing but they helped us immensely. A year on they’ve helped us figure out how to structure our mortgage, helped us apply for a mortgage top up. We worked specifically with Mike McGinley and we tell our friends looking to buy a house, all about their services.
Really good service from Mike. Very responsive and timely. Gave good easy to understand advice.
I was put on to Mike McGinley by a friend who spoke very highly of him as a Mortgage Broker who had helped her to buy her first house.Mike was very professional, responsive and helpful, and was a great guide in helping me navigate my own first home buying journey. I would recommend Mike's services to anyone in need of a Mortgage Broker.Jemima de Lacey
Brodie has become a trusted advisor, and helped us shape our finances to work better for us. He is generous with both his time and knowledge, a quick communicator and provided us great results. Highly reccomend!
Very much liked Mike’s professionalism and knowledge. Efficient and very effective in dealing with any issue that arose. I have already recommended him and ConnectMe Mortgages to 3 friends. Friend while being to the point. Highly recommend if you are in need of a fantastic Broker.
Mike is a fantastic mortgage broker, especially for us as first home buyers. He was exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and didn’t mind answering our many, many questions. Highly recommend his mortgage broker services, you’ll definitely get the best out of your money and the best experience.
I would highly recommend Emma from Connect Me Mortgages. She is efficient, professional and always fast to respond. Emma provides excellent service and great advice, everything that makes a great mortgage advisor!
Fast, professional and genuine. If I could put 10 stars I would.Brodie's commitment to his clients are unmatched and we can't recommend him enough.
Highly recommend Mike and his team. Really helpful and efficient especially for me and my wife being first time home buyers.
It's been great working with Joshua Logan from Connect Me Mortgages. We updated our insurance policies and Joshua was friendly, helpful and dealt with all the paperwork/process for us. We're confident that we have the correct insurances (life, health) in place.
To say Emma went the extra mile is an understatement. She made the whole mortgage process a breeze.Emma secured two great offers from the banks and locked in an excellent deal within a week of my first contact with her! I’m delighted with the outcome.Emma really cares and listens. She took care of all communications across all parties and attended to every single detail professionally and efficiently!In summary, I cannot recommend Emma highly enough. She provides an exceptional first class and seamless service. Thank you!
Had a fantastic experience with Brodie Sadgrove who helped re-fiannce our mortgage to fund major rennovations. He delivered quick and hassle free service, taking the stress of dealing with the bank and their red tape, out of the equation. Would highly recommend.
I'm a first time home buyer and I cannot speak highly enough on how Brodie Sadgrove made this home buying experience easy and stress-free for me. I know some people who shared stories on how stressful it can be when buying a house especially if it's your first time. I was worried that I was going to go through the same thing and was preparing myself for it. But Brodie was really professional and knowledgeable in his field. He was also very understanding and very patient especially when explaining things to me (so many terms/jargons I didn't understand LOL). Overall, I am very much satisfied with Brodie's service and will highly recommend him to others. Thank you, Brodie! 🙂 Juna
Highly Recommend! Mike and his team are very professional and work to get the best outcome for their customers. Really responsive and great to deal with. Would 100% use them again.
Highly recommend Brodie Sadgrove from ConnectMe mortgages. Brodie helped us buy our first home. He is extremely helpful and provides very good advise on buying a house. His customer service is excellent. Very fast responses, he responds even during weekends and is available to help all the time.
Brodie was excellent to deal with. Was always easy to contact and responded quickly to any questions. Always friendly, polite and helpful.
Just a special word of thanks for all your patience and efforts with securing our mortgage during this daunting process of finding and finally, buying our first property in NZ.Your excellent communication and professionalism made the process super easy!Once again, thank you!
Mike was very helpful in helping me get my first mortgage. He answered all of my questions, talking through any concerns I had and got me the best deal and interest rates. Call Mike!
Looking for finance when it comes to lending for a property is not always the easiest and can also be a huge emotional rollercoaster for some people.In some cases, it can be difficult to share lots of case-sensitive personal information with a broker who you never knew or met before.We investigated our options with our first port of call being on Google and contacted the top five listings, which included some of the larger mortgage broker brands including squirrel who placed in the top three on Google.I write this review for Emma at connectme mortgages but also highlight why I did not choose to continue the dealings after two or three phone call conversations and document submissions with others. Therefore this review is comparable to the experience of the last 4 to 5 weeks with all of the selected brokers.Emma made the experience very personal. She allowed us to feel comfortable and shared processes and insights into lenders thinking and her suggestions for us to align with. She took the responsibility to realise the result one way or the other. Constant communications daily allowed us to feel that maybe she was only working for us and no other client.Emma can see the big picture from the small window shared with her as a top-class detective would in a crime scene.Selflessly using her negotiating skills with lenders to even get them to reduce their admin fees including hers because she wanted this to work for us.In comparison to early days whilst still talking to many brokers including Emma, no one at all cut it to the level of her qualities and hence it was not a difficult choice for us to engage the best broker for the job.Thank you Emma you are a true asset to the company and have given confidence to us that we can rely on you, hence next time knowing you are a text message away.Unfortunately, we can only give 5 stars here but no doubt worth 10.JJ
My whānau and I have our dream home - and that’s thanks to Ronnie and Brodie from Connect Me Mortgages. We were new to the selling/buying process and didn’t really understand how it all worked. But they answered every question we had (there were A LOT), their patience and organisation made everything so easy for us. Brodie’s experience and knowledge of the property market and commitment to getting us the best mortgage option was fantastic. They both went above and beyond - and we can’t thank them enough. We know without their help, we wouldn’t be in our beautiful new home.
Brodie Sadgrove was amazing! Don't think we could of successfully bought our first home without him.5 stars! Would definitely recommend.
Brodie is amazing.We would not have made it through our first home journey without him! He has a vast knowledge, he is approachable and has a friendly manner, he is very helpful when you are confused by the banks and have no idea what you are doing!I would and do reccommend him to all.- Thank you again Brodie! YOUR A STAR!!!
Met Brodie through a common friend. He was amazing, went above and beyond just sorting my mortgage. He gave great financial advice when requested, was very generous with his time and continues to provide great service post my purchase. Highly recommend!
Excellent service and super efficient to deal with. Made the mortgage process so easy and has a wealth of knowledge. We will definitely be using you in the future. Thanks again!
Five star service from Brodie in assisting with our Morgage. Highly recommend.
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages was brilliant to deal with. I had a couple of slightly complicated scenarios that he gave thorough advice around, and when it came to structuring the final mortgage gave really clear and easily understandable advice and information. He was super responsive, and always has time for my questions. I would not hesitate to work with Mike again, and have already recommended him to friends and family!
Made the process really easy especially being first home buyers.
We have used Brodie for a refinance and a pre-approval for a new purchase. We will use Brodie again without any hesitation.Brodie has always replied quicker than you expect. He is incredibly proactive and guiding throughout the entire process.Along with helping us get a good result, he has also given us ideas for options that we hadn't considered.
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages was beyond helpful, professional and knowledgeable. Other brokers that we spoke to gave us varying degrees of confusing and incorrect information whereas Mike was clear, informative and always responded in a timely manner. Thanks so much for all your help getting us into our first home.
I met Emma through recommendation a few months ago. I was beginning the process of purchasing my first house. This can be a daunting task at times. Emma took me through step by step and had some great industry knowledge which helped me along the way. Emma was very approachable and provides valuable advice whenever needed.I couldn't recommend Emma highly enough. I look forward to working with her in the future.
In today’s market in NZ it is very competitive and difficult to get a foot in the door. We were lucky to have Faifili Levave in our corner to be able to make what seemed impossible, very much possible. Faifili was able to answer all of our questions and helped us understand the process of purchasing a property. Faifili remained calm and worked very well under pressure which we couldn’t be more grateful fo. Faifili was also able to recommend an awesome solicitor and guided us through the whole process and now we own our first home so a big thank you to Faifili Levave for all of his hard work! I highly recommend you get in touch with him to help make your dreams a reality.
Emma has provided outstanding advice to us. We first meet Emma when doing a new build a couple of years ago. She provided great service and always went out of her way to give sound advice. We were delighted to find her at Connect Me and used her services again to restructure our loan. We referred our son to Emma who has just bought his first home and thanks to Emma’s extensive experience and knowledge he is now a proud home owner. We would highly recommend Emma’s services - she is amazing!
Contacting Emma was an absolute game changer in our house buying journey. She went above and beyond to help us throughout the process and kept regular contact to see how we were getting on. I wish we had enlisted her help sooner! Highly recommend
Great experience dealing with both Joshua & Brodie. Would recommend their services to anyone. Both are very professional and we have been very happy with their service.
Emma Johnston is everything you could ever wish for and more in a mortgage advisor.She is professional, friendly and caring.She organises your mortgage like it’s her own, with attention to detail, focus and determination.Emma has been for our advisor for many years now and we wouldn’t dream of going to anyone else.We know we can trust Emma with some of the biggest decisions we have to make and she will do her very best for us and deliver every time.
Huge thanks to Brodie for helping us though the long haul of finding a property and securing a mortgage. Brodie was always available around our busy schedules and we really appreciated the extra effort he went to.
Mike has been absolutely amazing. Without him, we couldn’t have purchased our new home. He has been very patient with us over the last year and we’re forever grateful. Highly recommend his services 🙂
I dealt with Mike and he was great helping me get into my first home and getting me the best deal from the bank we went with. Since this was a turn key he worked with me all throughout 2020 helping me come up with back up options that thankfully weren’t needed. He worked with me on this for the best part of 18 months. Definitely reccomend Mike and the team at connect me mortgages.
Big Thank you to Faifili Levave for his guidance in helping us utilize equity we had to top up for urgent renovations and a purchase of a new family car. He has a great way of communicating and was always available when we had questions. Grateful for his expertise and Professionalism. Highly recommend Faifili and the team at Connect Me.
Faifili was simply awesome!! Presented him with a huge challenge to unravel business and personal lending and bring it all together. He listened from the start and structured a deal that made a huge difference to us. Would totally recommend Faifili. His communication throughout was great and we knew where thinvs were at every step of the way. Superb!
We have had dealings with banks and they were unprofessional and unhelpful towards my first home buying situation with one of the Mobile Mortgage Managers asked if we even knew what we were doing in a condescending way.Me and my wife had such a terrible experience with the bank when we gave them 8 business days in advance to see if we could go unconditional on our offer but there were no response to my emails or correspondence and we ended up losing on the home because we had to go conditional to finance. After the awful experience with the bank we ended up going to see Mike and it was wonderful working with Mike. As a first home buyer, I felt looked after with Mike.Mike was helpful in every way from the documents needed for the application, to the home loan offer, to the settlement. He ensured that I understood every step of the way on what was happening. Mike was genuine and was always present through the whole way.I have referred him to many other friends and will continue to do so because I know that he will look after all his clients. It was a pleasure working with him and can not wait to work with him in the future once my fixed terms end to reassess the situation and work in a new deal.
We found our forever home but hadnt yet sorted much else. We searched for local brokers and Connect Me Mortgages were highly recommended.I was impressed when Mike responded to us almost immediately after sending him our enquiry. Mike talked us through the entire process from start to end, he made everything seem so easy for us at every step and turn. Nothing was too much and he was always available to talk. We purchased our forever home and are extremely grateful to Mike. If you want professionalism & outstanding service please contact Mike.
Brodie Sadgrove and Connect Me Mortgages was almost the easiest part of my first home purchase. Brodie was super easy to communicate with by text, email or phone calls. Excellent work and a wonderful experience working with them.
My partner Tony and I have been using Brodie Sadgrove for his services for over three years now. We have alot to be grateful for what he's enabled us to do with lending, purchasing homes and debt consolidation. I highly recommend Brodie.
Thank you to Faifili from the Connect Me Mortgages team in porirua. Faifili was very professional and made sure we understood everything, he had great communication which made the refinance/change of bank process run so smoothlyWe highly reccomend Faifili and the Connect Me Mortgages team in porirua..
Mike from the Porirua branch was amazing, explained everything we needed and held our hands through buying our first home. Great response times and always at the end of his phone for support. Highly recommend:)
It was great working with Brodie, he made the process smooth in very professional manner.
Emma Johnston has been our mortgage broker since 2006 (15yrs). She helped us get our first home when we thought it wasn’t possible. When we found out she joined Connect Me Mortgage it was a no brainer that we follow her. Emma has provided us with excellent service throughout the years and in respect she has our loyalty always. Emma is so quick and attentive to ensuring she gets what her customers need in a really way. She goes the extra mile and explores all options for her customers. We have recommended Emma to all my friends and family across the country. She is the best.
Always so responsive to txts and emails, Brodie was excellent at making time for us and guiding us through buying our first home. Very happy with their service and expertise!
Brodie is excellent with what he does and we were very happy with his services, delivering on a very tight deadline. He's always there to answer questions and gives you advise even on a Sunday evening. We were very lucky to have been referred to him by a friend. Thanks Brodie and Connect Me Mortgages for helping us buy our first home!
Brodie was excellent to deal with, still helping us even after we have finished our purchase.
Faifili was so awesome, amazing to deal with, so friendly and got us the best deal with changing banks!Would highly recommend!
Have recently had the pleasure of using Faifili Levave as our mortage broker. Faifili made the who process of moving banks so we could secure a better mortage rate so easy. He was professional and had a great understanding of our needs. I would highly recommend using Faifili and will be definitely be using him again. 10/10 rating.
Mike was very responsive and worked hard to provide us answers we needed despite short time frames. He also provided great recommendation on people we can work with (conveyancer) allowing us to form a great team to support us in the home buying journey. We got our bank pre-approval in Dec 16, and got our offer to a home accepted 3 Feb! In a market as crazy as NZ, it is a great win!
Mikes service and knowledge in the housing market is second to none. He made getting into our dream home possible and worked with my fiancé and I at every turn to ensure we had all the information we needed to move forward. We are so grateful to have worked with Mike and we recommend him to anyone that will listen. Thanks again we love our forever home 🏡
Mike is the man! Thank you for helping us secure our first home. We were until a little time pressure over the busy holiday period but Mike was still able to help us really quickly and everything was sorted well in advance of our settlement date. He is clear, very responsive, doesn't put you under any pressure and is patient when you don't quite understand something. We look forward to working with you for the rest of our mortgage days.
I was referred to Brodie Sadgrove through a colleague. Brodie was very professional and very fast at responding to any questions or queries I had throughout the process of getting a mortgage. As I am primarily based overseas with work commitments I was impressed at how easy Brodie made the whole process. I would highly recommend Brodie and will happily use his expertise in the future.
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages is super helpful and responsive. He made the somewhat daunting process of buying a first home a lot more straight forward. He explained the entire process in a very digestible way. Would recommend Mike to anybody looking to purchase a home.
We are moving into our dream home only because of Mike and the team at Connect Me Mortgages. Simply put, without their help we wouldn't be in this fortunate position and we can't recommend them strongly enough.The knowledge and professionalism shown by the team means we could trust them completely, and now we have the keys to our new house and can look forward to 2021.Irrespective of being your first, second or third mortgage, please get in touch with Mike who will offer you invaluable insight and guidance.
As a first time home buyer, the immense support Mike and the Connect Me Mortgages team provided was invaluable. Through what could've been such a daunting experience, Mike went above and beyond to ensure I was well looked after from the beginning right through to the end. I had "shopped around" many other mortgage advisors/companies before hand and Mike and the team was by far the best, personable and genuine service I've come across. I could not recommend Connect Me Mortgages enough! Thanks Mike - couldn't have gotten into my first home without you!
We can not recommend Mike more highly. From our very first interaction with him he has taken the time to understand our complex situation with international lending and equity and always worked hard to get us the best financial outcomes. His communication skills are second to none - he always wrote, called and text back straight away. Mike is clearly very well respected in the field, much to the benefit of his clients. A part of our settlement didn't go to plan (nothing to do with Mike) & he absolutely saved the day! We are forever grateful. Thank you Mike!
Mike from Connect Me Mortgages is amazing! He was so helpful and professional and made the whole process much easier for us. Highly, highly recommend!
Kia Ora,We had the privilege of working with Faifili. I have to say I always found the process of going through personal finances very daunting. However, Faifili made us feel comfortable and at ease during the process with no judgement. Faifili is very professional and had good product knowledge he was always available to answer any questions that I had, and I had A LOT of questions. :)Thank you Faifili for helping us achieve our goal of being homeowners, a dream I thought may not be possible but we made it! Nga mihi nui ki a koe!
After many attempts with the bank, we were apprehensive about working with a mortgage broker. My husband and I finally decided to work with Faifili when he was highly recommended by a friend. I must say, contacting Faifili and was the best decision we ever made.Faifili, provided an exceptional service.He was non judgental in his approach, his ability to communicate and provide sound advice made the whole process easy.When we had questions Faifili was always readily available, whether it by phone or emails. His positive attitude and willingness for us to succeed gave us confident. He gave us hope. What was once "impossible is now possible". We are grateful for all the support he's given us and we will definitely continue work with him.
Mike at Connect me mortgages went out of his way to help me and even though there was nothing to gain for Mike he literally spent hours over a course of a month to explain how the market works, giving me advice and putting me into great people he knows in the industry.. I’m now on the way to owing my first home! Thank you very much Mike, greatly appreciatedKind regardsSam
You can't go wrong with Brodie. Very professional, responsive and very knowledgeable. He formulated a pathway for us to be a first time home owner. We are very thankful that we had met Brodie so we can acheive our goal. Highly recommended.
Brodie is excellent with what he does. He's always there to answer our questions and gives us advise that we need to get where we are. He has stuck with us for more than 2 years always encouraging us to be patient. We just bought our house with his help. We got approved in the middle of Covid when others stopped doing anything due to Covid. We are very happy with his services and we wouldn't change anything at all. We are very lucky to find him through a mutual friend. Thanks Brodie and Connect Me Mortgages for helping us reach our goal!👏❤🎉
Mike was so helpful and on top of the my application. I didnt do any running around. I got best rates, good cash back and peaceful mind when i dealt with Mike from Connect me mortgages. Highly recommended !!
I was given Mike's name by a work colleague and was so thankful. Mike has made the process of getting a mortgage stress free. He explained everything to me clearly and in language I could understand. Once the house went through I got him to look at my KiwiSaver again another easy stress free process. I thoroughly recommend using these guys they know what they are doing and get you value for money. I would not hesitate in recommending Mike and the team to any of my friends or colleagues.
Mike took us step by step through the process and was very professional. He is very responsive and helped us get our dream build finally underway! I have recommended Connect Me Mortgages to several friends and would definitely use them again.
Great mortgage company! Easy to deal with & very responsive. Thank you Mike & the team, we look forward to the many years ahead 🙂
Brodie Sadgrove? Definitely worth it. Being on my own in NZ meant - I couldn't afford to make a mistake while buying a house. Apart from getting a lot of details about properties, loans, agreements etc., I really appreciated that I had his fast responses on the phone and did not have to deal with a bank. You really do not want to be stuck with a bank's call center.
I met Brodie through a referral from a developer/vendor for property we were both considering purchasing and while I did not end up buying that piece of property, Brodie was very engaging in providing answers to my questions and we didn’t speak until I actually found the process of buying a new home and dealing with banks absolutely stressful. A colleague advised to engage a mortgage broker and instead of running to a few names - I approached Brodie. He worked with me really well being a good communicator and most importantly advising me on risks associated with types of loan structures. I was able to reach him after hours during a stressful period and he was professional and pleasant to deal with. He helped during our lockdown as that’s when I was about to settle and I have to say I am very satisfied with his services communication advice and help with structuring my mortgage. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brodie.
Mike & Faifili, thanks heaps for your assistance with reviewing my mortgage rates and getting me a new one which meant savings for me and my little family! Appreciate the speed at which it was processed too and how they were able to break it down for us. HIGHLY recommended. faafetai lava
Mike was brilliant to work with. He explained everything technically but then also in layman’s terms which, as a first home buyer, was super helpful. He provided excellent service and I had complete confidence in his ability to secure us a great mortgage structure.
Mike McGinley from Connect Me Mortgages helped me getting a loan for my first house. He walked me through the whole process and provided all the information and knowledge required. Mike is always responsive and made sure I make the right choice. Thank you Mike for your help. I would really recommend Mike.
Brodie was such a fantastic mortgage broker helping us buying our first home! He explained the process and how the types of home loans work so well to make sure we were comfortable with everything we signed up for. And always had fast responses to any of our questions we had throughout the process
I've personally know Mike for several years now and I must say from an outcomes perspective there is no one better.I have had a experiances with a couple of other brokers who have managed to a job, haven't had the knowledge that Mike has. From the start he knows if you are going to get a loan and who is lending for your situation. Where as I have found other brokers haven't, you go through the forms process then they give you the "bad" news.Mike and the team offer practical solutions for finance. Not all the time I've liked the message, but the reality was that it simply wasn't possible in the lending enviroment at the time.There approach is the most modern I've experianced. Their online system for gathering info is fantastic and makes the process of getting the info they need to help you get the finance simple. There isn't one better.I would highly recommend Mike if you are looking to finance a purchase of a significant asset in the future.
Mike & Josh were helpful, efficient & professional. As a first-home buyer, they were great at answering my many questions & helping me navigate the process. Highly recommend!
Working with Mike and the ConnectMe team removed a significant amount of stress and uncertainty from the mortgage process. Mike was able to recommend a product that fit our financial needs, preferences and lifestyle, as well as guide us through the process to buying our first home.I would use ConnectMe Mortgages again, and will continue to recommend Mike to friends and family.
Brodie from ConnectMe was amazing. He was fall of advise and ensured we got the best mortgage rates. Our timeline to get the mortgage was tight but Brodie ensured that everything came together. I would recommending ConnectMe to anyone that wants a Mortgage or even insurance.
Mike was excellent to deal with. He was very helpful explaining and helping us through the process as first home buyers. We will definitely use him again!
Mike was am absolute pleasure to work with. Being first home buyers we were very unsure of the process involved and the steps that we needed to take while trying to purchase our property but Mike simplified a lot of the 'scare factors' and made things easy for us (especially purchasing during lock-down)!. Mike remained very professional throughout the time we had our dealings with him and managed to get us a great deal in the end! He was very thorough, fast paced and always made himself available for advice or general information. Appreciate all of your help Mike and we are looking forward to working with you going forth.
Thank goodness for Mike. He gave me such a good steer and helped me through a tricky process to where I came out with a great deal. I seriously couldn't have done it successfully without his great advice and support.
Mike at ConnectMe mortgages was brilliant to work with. We got in touch with Mike early on, in the search for our first home in Wellington. He was very informative, flexible with his time, and patient as he worked us through the house buying process. He was helpful and available at each step of the way. Thank you Mike for making our home buying process easier. We highly recommend your services!We also had the pleasure of working with Joshua, who is the insurance adviser at ConnectMe. Brilliant to work with, Josh worked tirelessly to get us insurance policies to suit us.Thank you ConnectMe Mortgages, you have truly made adulting easier.
Brodie made our home buying experience run like an absolute dream, even in the middle of a pandemic. The process from the outset was so easy; Connectme allowed us to complete most of the paperwork online, with a great dashboard that helped us to keep track and understand the process. Brodie went above and beyond to help us with a successful offer on a home. It was a tough and competitive buying environment and Brodie stuck by us, through multiple offers - always providing guidance and support (even during the uncertainty of COVID!) Could not recommend more highly. If you want professional, responsive, honest and effective support with obtaining a mortgage and securing your home - look no further. Thanks so much!
Mike was absolutely great to work with. He is extremely clear and very patient in explaining to us the things that we do not understand about buying our first home. Now, that we have our place to call "Home, Sweet Home". Thank you Mike and Connectmemorgages for helping us all the way through.
My husband and I cannot fault Mike's service. We were really impressed with how he managed everything, his professionalism, his knowledge and clear communication style. He was able to answer any question we had and his guidance was invaluable. We highly recommend him and won't hesitate to use his services again.
Cannot recommend Brodie Sadgrove enough at Connect Me Mortgages. He helped us through the entire process seamlessly, also connecting us with an insurance broker who was very helpful. Will definitely use Brodie's services again in the future. Thanks so much, couldn't have done it all without you.
Mike is fantastic! As first home buyers we were pretty new to the whole scene. With his extensive knowledge he made this really easy for us, we never had a problem getting hold of him if we needed to check something or get further advice. We are now in our new home and loving it! Thanks again Mike. Tom & Grace
Absolutely brilliant, Mike is a mortgage broker that absolutely works for you! We are based in Auckland, so distance was not an issue, we did everything through the online platform, email and phone. He has in depth knowledge of the mortgage lending market, and clearly has the right relationships with the banks as everything went smoothly. Will give 6 stars if i could
Mike is excellent - very fast, efficient, professional and very knowledgable. I wish I had found Connect Me earlier! Highly recommended.
Brodie helped me get into my first home I highly recommend his professional services.  He was able to let me know what was possible within a situation that for me was a bit variable as to what deposit I had and what property I would have an opportunity to give an offer on. Brodie gave me realistic possibilities from a financial services perspective every step of the way for the different scenarios that came up.Brodie kept in touch with me to make sure I wasted no time while waiting on information about my deposit amount or property offer.  During the waiting periods he guided me to get all the necessary paper work/supporting evidence in place which he knew the bank would want covered off.  That preparation really made the final steps much easier.  For someone new to the house buying process I highly recommend Brodie, he is very straight forward, no nonsense, with a drive to help people.For people (like me) who like to do paper work using the internet Brodie also had the option of a simple interface via his company's website to upload documents and even schedule catch up appointments with him. On this website interface (you have your own log in area) you can see easily if there is anything outstanding and if the papers that you have uploaded have been accepted.  Brodie also personally phoned me during the critical moments of the process this was greatly appreciated.
Mike at Connect Mortgages is incredible! He has been there from the moment I contacted him to tell him I was interested in buying till now which is me in my first home! He has a depth of knowledge in this area and really cares about helping you achieve your goals. I cannot thank Mike enough for the hard work he put in and his professionalism he handles all his work with.Thank you Mike for getting me in to my first home, I couldn't have done it without you.
Brodie worked tirelessly to get our first home over the line. He provided sound advice when we needed it, and was always on hand and responsive for those hairy last-few-moments-before-auction times. Everything went smoothly with our mortgage and settlement and he was able to negotiate a cash incentive too which really helped with move in costs. I 100% recommend Brodie and when the time comes, we'll be coming back to him. Thanks Brodie!
Mike and the team provide a very professional service and make getting a mortgage easy. I would highly recommend.
We purchased our house last month in Upper Hutt, Wellington, and we could not have found such a good deal without the smooth service and assistance from Brodie Sangrove. From the get go he was knowledgeable, polite, informative, and accessible. There was no question that he found too difficult and if he wasn't sure of an answer he found out the correct information and got back to us ASAP.He is an absolute asset to your company and we have been recommending him to everyone and anyone we know.
I had the pleasure of dealing directly with Mike. Firstly, he managed to get the banks to offer me more money and a better interest rate than my bank did when I approached them directly. Secondly, he was always available when I called him -- and I called him often -- and took the time to answer all of my questions. Thirdly, but most importantly, he helped me move into my dream home. Mike is professional, patient, and supportive. The entire process, from the initial application to settlement, went perfectly smoothly. Superb!
We have been lucky to have been introduced to Mike and to have subsequently engaged him for his services. He works with the client in mind, ensuring best outcomes are achieved.If you are looking for someone to help you find the best mortgage deals, and work with you as the client in mind right throughout, Mike is that person!
Mike was fantastic to work with!He was there every step of the way with answers and advice.His systems and processes are easy and fast to use.His advice and structure has saved us thousands already, but more importantly he has set us up with a great bank/structure/flexibility and everything else a growing family needs to have on their side.I could not recommend him more!
absolutely the best.Mike went out of his way to get us home loan after we had been turned down several times.We highly recommend Mike to anyone with a smile and we will definately be dealing with him for any future transactions .EXCELLENT SERVICE.Thanks a million Mike.
Loved working with Mike and the team at Connect Me Mortgages. He made everything super clear and easy to understand for us being first home buyers. Highly recommend, i would never use anyone else!
Excellent friendly advice with taylored solutions. Mike made my mortgage and Life Insurence experience hassel free with his proffessional and helpful advice. Thank you.
Mike went above and beyond to assist us during a busy and swift sale of our first home to come up with the perfect mortgage arrangement for us going into our second home. He is extremely thorough, helpful and an expert in his field. We felt absolutely confident in his advice and we wouldn’t hesistate twice to recommend Mike to anyone.
Mike is not only knowledgeable about all the services he provides, he is always available, considerate and thoughtful. His great communication really helps when making some really important life decisions. He takes the time to explain important details and works hard to find great deals.
Our experience with Mike at Connect Me Mortgages has been exceptional. His dedication, knowledge and guidance has been invaluable. A huge thank you for helping to get us in our first home. Ka mau te wehi!
Excellent experience with Mike. Not only did we get a competitive offer but that was secondary to the value he brings with his service and expertise. Throughout the process he is prompt in his responses and provided valuable guidance throughout a fairly complex loan request. I have dealt with a few different lenders and Mike has been by far the best. I would highly recommend Mike if you value excellent service.
Mike is very sincere and considerate in every aspect of engagement with his customers and prospective clients. We have had the pleasure of dealing with Mike for a number of years now and are more than happy to recommend his services to prospective customers. If you want honest, thorough and comprehensive financial advice, Mike is definitely the person to speak with
