“We recently had the pleasure of working with Rita to obtain our first mortgage as a married couple after being recommended her services by friends of ours.
When we took the plunge, it was in the height of COVID19 which meant the banks kept changing policy and procedures frequently, making it even more “cutthroat” to be able to get a mortgage than ever before. Every single day Rita was on the phone or sent a detailed email that informed us of exactly where we were at, what the bank required from us all while making sure we were getting the best fitting mortgage for us as a young family.
There were never any “hidden surprises” from Rita nor the finance company she was dealing with at any stage unlike when we have dealt with the “Big 4” in the past.
Rita has kept in regular contact with us since finance took place (after a nail biting 21 days), ensuring settlement was arranged and paid prior to the date of settlement for piece of mind for us as couple; has called in the weeks since to make sure that everything with the repayments and financier has continued to travel along smoothly and just to check to make sure we were ok as people and a family which has been wonderful.
We will continue to use Rita’s services for a long time into the future as we continue to grow our investment housing portfolio, as well as manage our mortgage on our personal home as well”.
“We’d like to thank Rita at Kelly and Co Finance for her outstanding work helping us with our recent property purchase. After a less than satisfactory result from our current bank, we contacted Rita who dropped everything to find us an even better deal than our bank could provide and expedited pre-approval within days to allow us to secure our dream property. We really can’t recommend Rita enough – she understood completely our time pressure, walked us through the process and presented a number of different finance options that allowed us to be armed with the information we needed to make the best decision for us. If you are looking for a trustworthy, diligent and patient broker who genuinely cares for her clients, look no further than Rita. We look forward to working with her again.”
“Rita made the purchase of my home so much easier than it could have been. She was patient and put in time and effort to help me along the way. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a mortgage broker”
“Our experience with Kelly and Co Finance was superb! We could not be in better hands. We never thought they would make our dream come true so quickly. Rita Sauvage put things in very simple terms and never rushed us to make a decision. She was very transparent and unbiased with the home loan comparisons in order to help us to select the bank that suits our needs and lifestyle.
She made us feel very comfortable to call her about our ‘home loan application’ even if it wasn’t directly related to the loan. Rita is our trusted advisor in the home loan aspect.
Rita is always committed to the customer, she helped us to negotiate with real estate agents, property developers and solicitors of both parties. We have no words to describe how thankful we are. Looking forward to buying the next property with her.
Every potential home buyer should meet with Kelly and Co Finance when considering a loan.”
“We found Rita Sauvage, of Kelly and Co Financial Services, absolutely superb in helping us with our mortgage. We got really prompt service, and nothing seemed too much trouble. We cannot recommend Rita highly enough.”
“We could not have been happier with the service Rita provided. We found a property much faster than anticipated and with a really short finance clause and a slightly complicated short term financial position. Rita went above and beyond to not only get our loan approved in time but also to ensure we got a great rate. From first meeting through to settlement Rita was with us every step of the way, keeping us updated on progress and ensuring our application was processed promptly. We will definitely be back to chat to Rita when our fixed rate term expires.”
“Can’t thank Rita Sauvage enough for the hard work and effort she put in to help me. I wasn’t seeing results from previous mortgage brokers, but Rita made the entire process seamless and stress free for me.
It’s one of the most stressful experiences we have to go through, so I’m glad I had someone as knowledgeable and open as Rita to help me. She kept me updated and informed the whole way, and secured me a really good deal where others couldn’t.
Will and have already recommended Rita to others!”
“Whilst exploring options to consolidate some existing debt, and after some disappointing advise from my current lender, I went to see Rita. My expectation of achieving my goals was fairly low, given the experience with my current lender. However, after the initial meeting with Rita I was nicely surprised to learn that I could consolidate and refinance with an alternative lender and reduce my repayments all at the same time.
Finance for me is like the great unknown, I am baffled by the terminology and the inherent difficulties with dealing with banks. Within a matter of minutes, Rita was able to demonstrate her competence and knowledge such that I had the utmost confidence that she would find a solution that would work for my circumstances. Rita is persistent, knowledgeable and patient and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Put simply, Rita is a cracker!”
“Rita Sauvage is an authentic, professional and warm person who has been genuinely interested in assisting me to realise my goals and dreams. Rita helped me navigate through a range of options that was the best fit for me and my long term goals. I have no hesitation in recommending Rita to anyone who wants to find a better loan option.”
“Buying our first home was not an easy process, we had so many questions and sometimes we found the information quite overwhelming. After meeting Rita things started to clarify and the process became easier and clearer. Rita visited us several times even to assist us with things that were not related to her service. She was always clear and provided with us different examples so we could easily understand the information and different figures involved. She listened closely to our needs and concerns and assisted us with a plan that worked very well for us. She worked with our timeframe and directed us in what we needed to complete in order to buy our first home. We are very thankful to have met her as she made the process very seamless, she assisted us with very small details and she had always an clear answer for our concerns.
We can’t stop recommending her! “
“Thanks to Rita for her knowledge and guidance in buying our first home. Rita made what we thought would be a daunting, difficult process extremely easy and stress free. She really helped us learn about and navigate the financial process and nothing was ever too difficult. We felt very supported and in safe hands throughout, and really appreciate her excellent communication and hard work to get the best outcomes for us. We couldn’t recommend Rita highly enough.”
“We recently used Rita from Kelly & Co Finance to help us find the best home loan for purchasing our first home. Rita was referred to us by a couple of work colleagues who had used her and found her to be fantastic. Let me just say that she did not disappoint in the slightest. Rita consistently went above and beyond for us and was always there to help answer questions or quell our nerves. We will be using Rita again in the future and will be recommending her to all our friends and family.
Thank you again Rita!”
“Rita was absolutely a delight to deal with. Very professional but also managed to treat us as individuals and tailored her approach based on our needs. She made us feel that she was there with us every step of the way and her personal touches were very much appreciated. She provided us with more in-depth insight and assistance from negotiating the cost of the property to ensuring that everything is in place for us to move in at the right moment. We are very grateful and would highly recommend her services.”

“Working with Rita was an absolute pleasure! She offered us personalised and professional service and guided us through the financing process step by step. I would recommend Rita and Kelly and Co Financial Services to anyone! Thank you Rita“
“We have recently used Kelly and Co – in particular Rita Sauvage to help us with our finance options. Rita was outstanding in keeping us updated with the progress and worked hard to secure the best deal for us. We always find Rita very professional, approachable and understanding of our needs and we have no hesitation recommending Rita’s service to others. Thanks so much Rita you truly are wonderful!”
“We would just like to express our gratitude and say a huge thank you to Rita Sauvage for helping us buy our first home.
She is probably the most genuine & authentic person we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and thank god we did. Rita made the whole process so simple by explaining every detail in an easy and non complex manner. She was always available be it on the phone or in person and nothing was too much hassle for her. We would of been totally lost without her help. We look forward to continuing working with her and couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She was amazing”
“Kudos and thanks to Rita and team.
We tried to get finance directly from a Big 4 Bank, but became stressed and frustrated when our loan application simply wasn’t moving fast enough. Rita stepped in and presented a series of options to us (much more competitive than we could find directly) that suited our specific needs. She then managed to get the loan approved and sorted out in just a matter of days.
Thanks Rita – so much easier and saved a bunch of money too!”
“We are so grateful that we were lucky enough to find Rita Sauvage just in time to ensure the purchase of our first home went smoothly. We are a young couple that knew absolutely nothing about getting a loan, working out our finances or even what an offset account was etc. Luckily however Rita is such a knowledgeable and patient mortgage broker and she took the time to explain the whole process to us.
Rita’s service was amazing, she kept in regular contact throughout the process from start to finish. By helping us prepare to finish our savings she made us confident that we were ready to start looking at houses with an accurate idea of what our budget was. She also explained the ins and outs of fixed versuses variable rates plus everything in between.
Having Rita as our mortgage broker was the best decision we have ever made!
We had friends and family who had went directly through banks ‘to get the cheapest rates for their loan’ however that is most definitely not the case. Rita invested so much of her time and effort to find the perfect lender for us and not only did we get the cheapest rate we got such incredible support and advice throughout which kept us sane!!
If you are looking to buy a home/borrow I couldn’t recommend enough getting a mortgage broker to help you because trying to do it yourself by going directly to the banks is a waste of your time! And don’t get just any mortgage broker, get Rita Sauvage I’m sure you will be just as grateful and happy as we are. Rita is so good at what she does, but most importantly is such a lovely, genuine, kind lady. She was so kind to give us a beautiful set of mugs to congratulate us on the purchase of our first home and still keeps in contact 3 months later to see how everything is going. Thank you so much Rita for everything you have done for us”
“I am so grateful that we were introduced to Rita! After seeing four other brokers and being left a little uninspired, it was an ABSOLUTE pleasure meeting with her to discuss our plans for buying our first home.
I really looked forward to our regular catch-ups. Once we got into the nitty-gritty of organising the finance, Rita made the process so easy. I genuinely couldn’t understand why everyone else says that the most stressful part of buying a house is arranging the finance. This is definitely not the case when Rita is your mortgage broker!
Rita’s whole attitude, professionalism, knowledge and customer service was perfect. I will be telling everyone who wants to listen about how great our mortgage broker is! Thank you so much Rita. I am so glad we were able to share the process of buying our first home with you!”
