Having emigrated to NZ from the UK in 2010, I know first-hand how different and daunting home loans can be, especially to people who are new to NZ.
I am passionate about helping people and as a Registered Financial Adviser with access to both registered banks and non-bank/specialist lenders, I will work with you to find lending to meet your needs.
Whether you are a First Time Buyer; looking to buy an investment property; refinance existing lending or want to consolidate debt, I would like to hear from you.
I am committed to providing a professional service, with good clear communication, ensuring my clients are kept up to date with progress of their lending application every step of the way.
Having been working as a mortgage adviser since 2015, I am very proud to have previously received the Mortgage Link New Mortgage Adviser of the Year Award, which recognised my professional conduct and overall performance as an adviser helping my clients.
I look forward to helping you soon. You can contact me on 021 126 7963 or email me by clicking here
"Thanks for helping us purchase our first home! You made a complicated, foreign experience simple and we appreciate all the work that you have done on our behalf (whether it was getting pre-approvals for the auctions, talking us through 'dumb' first home owner questions, to securing us great rates and providing us with sound financial advice). We'll be sure to recommend you to our friends and family!" - P&A, Auckland
"Karen was very personable and easy to work with over the time. The process from initially seeing Karen to finding the right house took some time and Karen just kept in touch without any obligations. When finally we did find the right property and spoke to Karen she was very helpful and offered good advice and helped us understand what options best suited us. It is quite a daunting task borrowing money for a mortgage with so many choices. Karen helped us take out the guess work. Karen has also said she would follow up post our settling and moving in to look at alternative options once our fixed rate terms finish which is a great after service. Very customer focused. Thanks Karen for all your hard work on our behalf." – Dave & Nicole, Auckland
"I have no hesitation in recommending Karen’s services in providing advice and services in regards to mortgage lending, making the whole process hassle free. Karen’s communication throughout the process was clear and prompt" - Rob & Liz, Auckland
"Karen is the most amazing, genuine, hard-working and approachable mortgage adviser I have met. If finance is what you are looking for, she knows it all and looks at ways to save you money, time and heartache. Karen helped us in buying our first home and couldn't have been more helpful. The loan structure we have, we didn't know existed and this should allow us to pay off our mortgage much faster and also be safe in a changing climate. Thank you Karen we are most grateful for your help in what was a stressful time. You are a bright star." -Manuela W, Auckland
"Karen was recommended to us when we decided to buy our first home. Not only did the person recommending Karen speak highly of her, but when agents asked us the name of our mortgage broker, they all knew her and again commented on what an amazing job she does. Karen made buying a house that little bit less stressful. She was incredibly helpful, managed to get a good deal with the bank and ensured things were turned around quickly. Thanks to Karen we are now enjoying making our first house our home."- Jade B, Auckland
"Karen has been great throughout the process of buying a new home. She was very helpful with seeking the preapproval from the banks, and then with the structuring of my home loan. She is able to break down the numbers simply and ensure that you are informed so you can make the right decision that suits you best. I appreciated her patience and grateful that I could go to her with any questions related to the mortgage application. If you need advice or help with your mortgage application, do give Karen a call." -Alice C, Auckland
"As first home buyers, Karen gave us a huge amount of support in organising and understanding our financial options. She gave us a detailed explanation of each step in the process, and was always quick to respond via email or call.
Meeting up was very convenient – She came to us at a time that suited, and slowly went through all options. She was successful in securing very low interest rates for us, which will definitely make a difference in our future finances.
We are very thankful for her help and knowledge in structuring our loan, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for mortgage advice - We are very glad that we chose Karen to help us!" -Tom & Lisa, Auckland
“Karen Renwick was recommended to us when we were looking at buying either a larger or second home and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She walked us step by step through our options and then, once we had found a property, through the application process. This had seemed very overwhelming to us but working with her made the whole experience so much less stressful. Her experience, attention to detail and patience in dealing with our ongoing questions was much appreciated and led to a great outcome for us. Karen is an absolute pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate in using her services again.” Kerry and Ruth, Auckland
"Thank you so much for helping us ride this stressful and emotional rollercoaster, there was a lot of times when I didn't think it was going to happen but eventually it came through and honestly we are 2 of the happiest people on earth right now.
We have appreciated your help so very much and we want to extend our immense gratitude to you. Thank you Karen and we wish you an abundance of blessings."
Regards, - Emily G, Auckland
