We have been working with Ray and his team for 13 years now and I can highly recommend dealing with anyone at Switch Finance. They go above and beyond, and are very patient people which is important when you are making big financial decisions. Thank you Switch Finance!!
I have known Ray for I5 years and have referred 3 people to him for mortgages and we were all extremely happy. I can’t say enough how wonderful Ray is and one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Thank you very much for the effort you and your staff go to put a roof over our heads 😊Photo is my next property a holiday eventually
Wonderful help from Julie and Ray
We wanted to refinance our house for some extensive renovation work. Josh from Switch Finance was a huge help in the process. He secured us a great deal and walked us patiently and transparently through the process. Highly recommended.
My property just settled. Thanks so much for all your effort Ray, and the girls always a pleasure to deal with.I am a single mum, and was told No, no and no. Ray got me a YES for not only a refinance, but also another loan for a home for me and my girl. Dealing with the bank is always stressful, but Switch made it more bearable. Celebratory Dinner tonight.Thanks heaps Ray. And thanks for taking my calls, even at the Christmas party. You made me feel like I was an important and valued client.
Super impressed with Switch finance team and especially Eghard's support!! He took time to truly understand our situation and needs and made sure they were met when applying for finance. Efficient, effective and very personable service! Couldn't recommend these guys enough! Thank you!
Again you have made our purchase easy and follow the process all the way through to hand over. You and the entire Switch Finance Team are AMAZING !!! Could not recommend you enoughThanks for all your help today and over the years Ray. You are a pleasure to do business with. Nothing is difficult to you and we truly appreciate it 🙂 . We highly recommend your services at Switch Finance.
Joshua and team have helped us going through all the process until we got our home! It’s not easy but we work together! Now we are very happy! Thank you!
I can't speak highly enough of Eghard's professionalism and how much he assisted us in navigating the home buying process. We worked with Eghard on and off over a few years waiting for the right time to buy due to travel overseas. Without engaging the help of the Switch team we would have found it extremely difficult and probably more costly finding the right financier for our home purchase. Using a broker is a no-brainer, highly recommended.
Great service and very experienced team!
Ray and Julie have helped me with securing mortgage for me twice and both experience have been great. They will do their best to support and get the required work done in timely manner. I will definitely reach out to them again if i need to secure another mortgage.
I highly recommend Switch Finance. The service was top quality, friendly, efficient and so helpful. They were so reliable and happy to answer any questions and take the time to explain things. I would definitely use them again
Eghard and his team was great to deal with and I can highly recommend anyone at Switch Finance, great experience!! Thanks for all your help and support. Thank you Switch Finance!!
Eghard and the team at Switch have just helped my partner and I secure our new home. This is the third time I've been fortunate enough to have them as part of my team. The relationship has allowed me confidence in my position when offering on property, along with extending my financial knowledge. The team are proactive in their approach, always responsive and reduce the stress of property purchase (not to be undervalued). I've recommended Switch to many of my friends and we look forward to working with them for the next one! Thanks again guys!
Thank You, Bobby! We couldn't do it without You and my accountant off course! Best service ever!
Ray & Julie were fantastic to work with when refinancing our home loan."I will use this team again
What a team!! Could not fault the service we received from Ray, Julie and the Team. We have dealt with mortgage brokers in the past but none come close to Switch Finance. Ray is very knowledgeable and gets the loan that other brokers can't. Then there is Julie who is definitely Ray's right hand woman, she is on top of every little detail and does not skip a beat. We will be using them again in future and I would highly recommend them to anybody. Thanks for everything guys!
Ray and Julie (and the rest of the team) were a pleasure to work with. Ray was able to get finance approved for us that other brokers just could not match. Julie made the process smooth and stress free despite undertaking a complicated home refinance & construction loan in the middle of a global pandemic! We highly recommend Switch Finance. Thanks so much for your help....
Eghard & Julie were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We really valued their professional assistance, they went above and beyond any standard expectations.We’d like to recommend them and the whole Switch Finance team for any of their services.
Thanks Bobby for helping us secure a loan so we could move a little further out to Bonogin to a nice family home to raise our 2 and 3 year old.Having our own business made it very difficult for banks to lend us money but Bobby said he could help and he was able to secure our loan. Bobby was very prompt, even outside working hours.We wouldn’t be enjoying our new home today if it wasn’t for Bobby at Switch Finance.Steve & Ash - Chevron Driving School 🚗💨
Couldn't recommend Switch Finance higher - Ray, Julie and Carl are a team to be reckoned with.From start to finish their attention to detail and efficiency never lacked.Switch Finance organised a great deal - even better than personal contacts I had in banks could.Give them a call today, you will be glad you did!!
Wonderful experience as always, Ray is continuously able to get us exactly the structure we dictate we want, and quick too. Very easy to deal with and friendly. Would use them again.
Highly recommend! Ray & Julie were fantastic to work with when refinancing our home loan. They were patient with us & always quick to respond with answers & advice we requested & thorough in making sure we got the right loan for our requirements. Thank you Switch Finance!
Eghard and Julie were wonderful, their experience and knowledge combined with their excellent client service ensured a smooth home loan experience for first-time home owners in Australia. We are now the proud owners of our dream property and the Switch Finance Team were instrumental in getting us there!
Had an excellent experience with Ray and Julie with my home loan. They were quick to find a suitable lender and made the whole process seamless and easy. Thanks for your help!
Always great dealing with Ray and Julie and such a personalised and wonderful service from Switch Finance. Thanks guys - Lorina
My family and I have been working with Ray and the Switch Finance team for well over a decade. They have consistently given me the best deals on my home loans and go above and beyond in their customer service. Switch helped me get my first mortgage/home loan as a first home buyer. They made the whole process so much easier, helping me with the complex paperwork...something none of the banks really go out of their way to do. I was also pleasantly surprised at how many different loan products they compare. I felt like they really took my personal situation into account and found the right loan for me! The big banks don't offer anywhere near the same level of variety. Make sure you book a consultation with them if you are a first home buyer or refinancing your loan. Thanks Switch Finance Team.
My wife and I have worked with Ray for many years. His team at Switch Finance have been a pleasure to work with and we always have full confidence that our mortgage is in good hands with these guys. Highly recommended!
Very helpful and straight up from the get go with a great understanding of the best way to structure things to suit your circumstances. Highly recommend.
Eghard and team were wonderful looking after us at such a stressful time! We most certainly would not have gotten our house settled without him! Thanks Eghard!
Exceptional service received from Ray and Julie. Ray is trustworthy, analytical, super organised, has amazing attention to detail and is very Knowledgeable. He returns phone calls and to date has given great advice. Cannot fault the professionalism or service received.
Ray is a 'one in a million' finance broker as he takes the time to explain all positives and negatives from multiple lenders. Furthermore Ray is confident and experienced enough to let you know if you are potentially going down the wrong track or over committing yourself. Lastly, I now regularly use Ray to bounce off investments ideas as he always leans on the conservative side to balance out my view.
My husband and i have been using Ray since we first landed in Australia some 10 years ago, for all our personal and investment loans. We had difficulty as new residents to the country to get any kind of finance even though we had bought over a substantial amount of money. Our first dealings with Ray were quite daunting as we were new to everything and we hoped we would find someone we could trust so early on. Lucky we found Ray, he was trustworthy and so we made a good choice. Now 10 years on and we are still dealing with him. Thank you Ray for being trustworthy and we both thank you for all your effort and time you put in everytime we have dealings with you. I would highly recommend Ray Dib for your finance requirements.
