“Our experience with Kelly + Co Finance. was excellent from start to finish.
Linda Oliver was exceptionally helpful and professional, and provided a very personalised service. Linda was prompt when responding to questions, supportive of our needs, and always careful to ensure that we felt comfortable and clear with the process. She has a detailed knowledge of both the industry and a wide range of mortgage providers and products.
We will continue to work with Kelly + Co Finance. Finance in the future, and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.”
“We would like to sincerely thank Linda for assisting us with realising our dream of refinancing our mortgage.
She worked with us to find the best outcome for our situation and what we wanted to achieve. We can now move forward in the best way possible.
Because of her dedication, honesty and “can do” approach, we are now enjoying a stronger financial position and have commenced our long-awaited renovations.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Linda’s services as a mortgage broker, and the Kelly and Co Finance business.
We look forward to working with Linda again.”
“We needed to raise a small loan quickly so we approached Kelly & Co because they had very efficiently helped our son.
Lindy was quick to suggest that Macquarie Bank would nicely fit our situation and that with the assistance of Linda we would be able to get the loan through in no time. Linda knew her job, was very efficient, quick & knowledgeable in assisting us to have the loan approved.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Kelly & Co and their staff.”
“Linda recently refinanced my current mortgages, getting me a much better interest rate than my current bank. She was genuinely interested in what my financial plans for the future were and how I could get there. I now have a plan in place to make this happen. Linda was always in communication with me in regards to paperwork and the next steps required. Linda guided me through the process and always made herself available to me when I needed it. The whole process of refinancing was much easier than I thought it would be and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone!”
“Jase and myself would like to thank Linda for helping us refinance our home loan and consolidate our other small loans at a much better interest rate. Thinking it was going to be easy and straight forward in our situation was like counting your chickens before they were hatched. It was very frustrating and the thought of just leaving it would have been easier but it wasn’t saving us money or helping us sleep better at night. Linda didnt give up, she went above and beyond to get us the best rate and at a better bank. Her years of experience and knowledge is worth its weight in gold. We will definitely be spreading the word regarding our situation at hope that other people will benefit from her service.
“We were not the average clients. Linda was amazing. A treasure box of everything starting with the letter “P “– Perseverance, Persistence, Patience
Proficient, Positive and above all Professional.
Linda’s assistance has been life changing. Linda will definitely be our go to person for any future lending advice and guidance.”
“We cannot express our thanks enough for Linda’s dedication and flexibility during obtaining finance for our new home. From the outset, we were worried that our multiple locations (Queensland, Western Australia and Malaysia) and unique work situation (roster work, time zone differences) would be a challenge while trying to obtaining a loan. Linda was more than accommodating of our unconventional requirements and found a unique solution that suited our situation.
Later in the process we received some curve balls, which Linda managed quickly and efficiently for us. This was key to us obtaining our finance on time and for us to orchestrate an international move to line up with settlement dates.
We are now well settled in our new home in Brisbane and are very grateful to Linda for her groundwork every step of the way. We look forward to working with her again in the future. “
“I was referred to Kelly & Co through a work associate. My circumstances were quite difficult, being in my late fifties and requiring finance for an unplanned eventuality. I spoke with Linda who from the get go was quite positive, which in my instance was a welcomed attitude.
There was always a sense of if this doesn’t work we will try something else till we get there and again this was helpful to me. As a Project manager myself I could see the methodology being engaged which operated with a steady pace all through negotiations.
Nothing seemed to be too much trouble which had the causal effect of me wishing to be likewise minded and despite the absolute hurdles created by my specific circumstance with this level of collaboration I was able to obtain finance.
Would I have found the same result elsewhere with another broker? Perhaps. What I can confidently say is that this, I did not have to seek out a broker to perform at this level, as I found it with Kelly and Co, in particular with Linda.”
“Being a first time home buyer, I felt very unclear about the process and found the prospect incredibly daunting. Initially I was just going to take the home loan through my own bank as that seemed the logical way to go. On the recommendation of a family member, I contacted Linda. She was able to source me a much better deal that was a better fit for my financial situation and requirements. She explained all of my options and was happy to answer my many first-time-buyer questions – she was never too busy to speak with me. Not only was Linda incredibly efficient, friendly and reliable, she was also honest and acted with integrity – two traits often lacking in the financial industry. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
