Why use ASAP Financial Services ?
Our qualities include :
- We work for you (we don't work for any one bank, lender or franchise group)
- we don't do loans with EVERY lender, in fact we are selective as to the lenders we will use in terms of service and product mix offered.
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:
- Blocks of Units on one title
- Commercial Construction incl. Specialised security such as Medical and Child Care Centres
- Small to Medium retail shops and shopping centres
- SMSF Resi and Commercial
- Specific holding structures such as Hybrid Discretionary Trusts
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

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.

Great service. Highly recommended
I am fully stoked by the service I received at ASAP financial.
As always, ASAP are the only broker you'd ever need :)
So very helpful - went over and above to assist. Thanks again :)
The most responsive service I have received (over Xmas, while on holidays with family). Always willing to answer my questions, and I can tell from the responses, there is a genuine focus on our best interests versus self-interest.
Rolf is always informative and takes the time to explain things from clients perspective. Also makes you think and prompts for more questions to ensure he understands your needs and goals before tailoring solutions.
Rolf has been absolutely amazing. He is keeping me informed every step of the way. Very much appreciated.
Rolf is an wealth of knowledge and an absolute pleasure to deal with!
He was able to take a complex lending scenario involving refinancing during the sale of two properties and the purchase of another with utmost ease.
For many years you have served me and many of my friends and clients. You have provided excellent service to all of them that has been prompt, caring, efficient and timely.
I see no area that you can further improve your work except to open an office in Sydney.
Its so great to have a broker like Rolf and his team !
Jo & I really appreciate your efforts in steering us through the mire of lending, especially in the current lending environment.
Thanks so much again.
