Why use ASAP Financial Services ?
Our qualities include :
Frankly, the quality of service offered by some lenders is so poor we would not put them forward as a solution to our clients' needs.
Around 8 out of 10 of the loans we place come from our existing referral base and repeat business. We think that means our clients like what we do for them.
We do lots of “Bread and Butter” residential home & investment loan work but have become specialists in the “hard” stuff:
Established in 1999
Between our 6 staff we have 50+ years of financial services experience.
Thousands of transactions from $10k top ups to relationships exceeding $10 million.
Our close knit mastermind mentor group settles in excess of 500 million per year. So we are confident someone will know how to get it done in the best way.
We listen, learn about and help clarify your needs and goals. Based on that varied input, we provide personalised, quality credit structuring advice in a concise written format. We ensure you understand the options available, regardless of how much time and effort this may take. Should you decide to implement our recommendations we will do most of the paperwork for you, chase the lenders, valuers, solicitors and other parties and keep you informed along the way.
The vast majority of our business comes from satisfied existing clients and their referrals
Are you wondering, 'am I too big or too small to be a client of ASAP ?'
We would say no, you will probably be right at home!
Most of our clients are multiple investment property owners, in various types of structures, with net worths ranging from – 500k to well over 20 million.
And, we like to work with First Home Buyers and First Investors - for this is where our Structured Finance Concept can have the most impact in the long term.
We have a fantastic team at ASAP!

Often we will receive a phone call asking 'what is your best rate?'
'What is your best rate?'
Invariably the reponse to such a question is that this is not what ASAP seeks to do for our clients. ASAP Financial Services works with a wide range of lenders to get the best value proposition for YOU.
We can almost guarantee that this will NOT be the lowest rate product in the market for that type. In any product or Service in a free market, there are 3 things you can measure :
Please choose any two that are most important to you. In an efficient market we would argue that it isn't possible to have all three.
While there is latitude in the mortgage market you can not, for example, compare one mortgage manager's "fully featured" loan to a Professional package deal offered by the major lending institutions. It would be akin to comparing an orange and a carrot, while they are both food, and they appear to be the same colour, we all agree they taste different and are consumed in different ways !
By using structures that are tax effective (please seek personal tax advice) and cashflow effective, with products that allow flexibility in a changing environment, allowing you to grow your asset base more quickly, rate isnt as important as it may at first seem.
Having said that, the rate you pay will mostly be market competitive with similar products, we dont recommend products that are not cost effective unless there is a "borrower or scenario" reason to do so.
We believe you will be pleasantly surprised by our uncompromising focus on finding the right match for your financing needs. The vast majority of our business comes from referrals generated by existing happy clients, and we think that speaks volumes for our service.
We offer products from a broad range of lenders. At any given time we may recommend one or more over others, dependent on your particular needs and financial circumstances. Talk to us about your specific requirements.
Our clients and their friends and family have access to free of charge* Reports of various types produced by Residex
These tools, used in conjunction with our structured finance concepts have helped our clients make "life decisions" on issues of property purchase, finance and allied investment. The end result is usually a large sum of money saved or made, and a HUGE amount of time saved.
