“Finlay was recommended to us by friends who had recently purchased a house. From our first meeting, we were impressed by his friendly relaxed attitude, professional advice and expertise. He thoroughly explained all aspects of the house purchasing process and freely provided additional time and advice as required. He liaised with a number of banks to get the best deal for us, and ensured the actual purchasing of our home was a transparent and hassle-free process. We have also appreciated Finlay’s follow-up contact and services to ensure we continue to secure the best mortgage deal for us.”

“I came by Finlay through a dear friend of mine’s recommendation 5 years ago and have paid it forward ever since. I figured “Why should I be the only one to benefit from the best – there’s enough of him to go around….” I can categorically say Finlay is the most up-front person I have ever dealt with and has literally dropped everything, over and over, to spring into action to aid both myself and my husband in getting the house(s) of our dreams. If you want peace of mind, the satisfaction of knowing everything will be handled and a smattering of fun to the bargain – I recommend Finlay Abbot. We loved dealing with him so much, we bought a house in a street with his name on it!”

“Having returned to NZ after nearly a decade away I was at a loss as to where to start on buying my first home. I am both grateful and delighted to have been guided through such a painless process by Finlay, I could do it all again in a flash.
The professional manner in which Finlay handled every step of my mortgage process; offering solutions and answers to the abundance of questions, with regular contact and updates along the way. His industry knowledge and networking made every step to buying my first home that much more achievable.”
Gina Dal Din, Head of Fund Administration
“Finlay was highly recommended to Colin and myself. We found his service personable and relaxing yet highly informative. I was particularly impressed that although we have different levels of knowledge and different motivations for buying our first home Finlay was able to relate and communicate appropriately to each of us. We both left feeling we had all the knowledge and confidence we needed.
We spoke to Finlay quite early in the process and I think that was very useful as we were able to look at houses armed with a good understanding of where our finances were. When we found “our home” Finlay provided accurate, timely information and was able to secure us the mortgage that suits our lifestyle and our goals quickly. It was reassuring that we never felt pressured in any way to which bank we went with. He gave us the information to make our own decision.
We are very happy with the service we received and have referred him to everyone we know looking for a mortgage.”

“Finlay’s clever initiative for strategic financial planning has enabled me on a formerly modest middle management income to create over the last six years a property portfolio of prime Wellington residential rental properties worth $1.8 million…
…Not only does he seem to be able to manage a myriad of complex financial information effortlessly but he also has become far more than a mortgage broker to my family he is actually our strategic financial adviser. I would very strongly recommend his services.”
Graham Ford, Director of Marketing & Communications
“Finlay has been the financial cornerstone of my business for many years now. Without his knowledge and experience the capacity to grow my business would have been made considerably more difficult. He has always provided outstanding financial service to me and anyone who I have recommended him to. I hold his advice in the highest regard and look forward to working with him as my business continues to grow.”
