Phil & Ash
“Hi Nik and Sanne, thank you again for all your help, two weeks ago we didn't honestly believe we would have a chance to be in the position we're in now. Even the estate agent was impressed that it was able to be done.”
“I had been searching for a house for almost a year with ongoing help from Vinessa and Laura. Despite being geographically separated I found them to be helpful, positive and available at all times. It took three times of going through the process before we finally settled but they remained on task and optimistic throughout and ended up getting a great rate. Thanks very much!”
Hannah & Harley
“We recently approached Milestone to help with our mortgage financing. We wanted to stay with our existing bank, but were struggling to get what we wanted from them. With the help of Peter and Vinessa from Milestone Direct we were able to restructure our debt, at better terms and without incurring break fees. We are now in a position to get our renovations moving.”
“Good morning Nik, thank you for your hard work on this. We really appreciate the effort you put into getting us the best mortgage for us. Looking forward to working with you again in the future!”
“Hi Nik, thank you very much for your support as our mortgage broker. Buying a home was a process that was new to us and your good communication and expertise made things much easier for us. We would definitely use you again and would recommend you to other people.”
“I first saw information regarding the ability to access financial planning advice through the 'Force Financial hub' on the NZDF intranet. The overall process was extremely user friendly, with easy to follow guides and advice provided throughout. Milestone Direct definitely exceeded my expectations and I have already recommended their services to friends within the NZDF.”
“I have recently had the pleasure of working with Milestone Direct who conducted a brief review of my finances and provided me with advice around the New Zealand Defence Force Kiwisaver Scheme and NZDF FlexiSaver Scheme. I found them to be great to work with, the turn around time is fast and the staff are very friendly and approachable. In terms of advice, they provide you with written recommendations which are easy to understand and match your current goals. Milestone go above and beyond in providing clarification around any questions that you have. I would highly recommend using them.”
“Fantastic service from Milestone Direct, talked me through all available options and explained everything fully. Found them great to work with and would highly recommend.”
“Once again, many thanks for both Nik's and Laura's efforts (and patience) in helping me with this journey. It is greatly appreciated. I have been spreading rhe message through my peer groups and people I know about the great work Milestone Direct has done on my behalf.”
“I am delighted with the service Nik has provided me with. He is very knowledgeable and hard-working. He helped me simplify my mortgage structure so it is cost effective and easy to understand. I would happily recommend Milestone Direct to anyone else seeking mortgage advice.”
“Hi Laura. Thank you for all the help from yourself and Nik. You guys were great with everything.”
Kevin and Caroline
“Nik, it is hard to believe that we have worked together to get our mortgage without meeting, yet we managed it well. We were impressed with your ability to get the process underway quickly and maintain the momentum through to the settlement date, achieving finance approval quicker than your standard time frame. We were also very happy with the terms you obtained for us, and would have no hesitation recommending Milestone Direct to others.”
