IYBI Finance BrokersExcellentIYBI Finance Brokers5.0 Based on 89 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onThommoThommo ★★★★★ My wife first discovered Paul on a property forum on Facebook. Paul gave us some hope in our desperate attempt to find information that no one was willing to give us. Paul jumped onto our case despite ourselves not having the greatest of financial backing when looking to buy our first home. Paul was able to do what other brokers over the last few years were not able to do for us and helped us buy our first home in the current property market. We did not seem to small or not worthy of his time. Paul was kind and caring over the many phone calls we made (including what may have been the most frustrating of questions to constantly answer). There was not a single time that was inconvenient. Paul was knowledgeable and informed us every step we made treating us with such kindness. After staying our first few nights in our new house we were greeted with a beautiful care package that had no expense spared. My wife is from overseas and hasn't perfected our language as of yet, Paul took the time and had the patience to make sure my wife was well informed. I cannot recommend Paul enough.Lucy ConwayLucy Conway ★★★★★ Best in the business. Paul has been an amazing broker who walked us through the process of buying our first home. His expertise and compassion for silly questions is unmet. Thanks so much Paul 😊Mitchell GrayMitchell Gray ★★★★★ Paul was nothing but outstanding with helping me to get a fantastic result in my reconsolidation and moving of my home loan to a better rate than I had with "one of the big 4" banks.My payslips were a hassle for banks to understand due to allowances and deductions being a shift worker however Paul was always going to bat for me and fighting to get the results that I needed.I am now one happy customer of Paul's with the result he achieved under difficult circumstances during the rate rises etc.Great customer service and he was always keeping me up to date during the entire process.Raven HawrylukRaven Hawryluk ★★★★★ Paul was extremely helpful and as the company name suggest, everything was in my best interest. The assistance doesnt end after settlement, he is very caring and supportive. Would reccommend him to everyone.Tony McBeanTony McBean ★★★★★ Paul was a great communicator, giving us options and explaining everything as the process unfolded.

Julie and TonyDylan BerderowDylan Berderow ★★★★★ Paul was absolutely fantastic in helping us understand and go through the process of buying our first home. Excellent communication, and a really personal service. Highly recommend Paul!Alison JefferiesAlison Jefferies ★★★★★ Firstly if I could give 100/100 stars for Paul’s genuine care and desire to fulfill another’s dream I would. 4 days out from a contract going unconditional on a new home for myself and my 2 children, I was told bluntly from my broker I wouldn’t get the finance causing absolute devastation, and to cancel the contract. I was casually referred to Paul. Well, from the moment i spoke him he got to work, reassuring me, calming me, keeping faith and making it a priority to get my finance through. Within 5 days Paul had proven to a bank that I could absolutely finance a mortgage no matter my income streams, Paul knew straight away which bank we would need to apply for, his knowledge, understanding, compassion, and genuine care went above and beyond any expectations and service I have ever received. A lifetime customer, without Paul and his motto In Your Best Interests I would not have fulfilled my dream.

His ethics and integrity are immediately apparent, as is his professionalism and readiness to help, despite our multitude of questions.Victoria BlackVictoria Black ★★★★★ Our fixed mortgage (with a very low rate) was coming to an end and in this climate, that was pretty scary for us.

We already had a mortgage and wanted to buy a bigger house for the family. My partner was on Mat leave and our existing lender would not help us with a new loan … it all seemed too hard until we met with Paul. Within 2 weeks he arranged a new loan with a much lower rate for us! And if that wasn’t enough, when our house sold for less than we planned, he was able to arrange a quick refinance on the new property for us too! He took all the stress out of the whole process, I’d highly recommend Paul!Kkakes15Kkakes15 ★★★★★ Paul was extremely supportive throughout the process of obtaining my first ever home loan.
