    Strategic Lending Advice

Have You Ever Wondered…?

  • Have you ever wondered why some property investors seem to get finance approved for every deal they come across? We can show you how to obtain property investment funding easily and effortlessly time and again using our multiple property strategies.
  • Are you buying your first home or first investment property and not sure where to start?
  • Are your current loan facilities working well for you? We will assess your current loan status and give you feasible and affordable suggestions to optimise your current cashflow, increase tax deductibility and more………

We have sound knowledge of the finance industry and our Strategists are avid property investors themselves. So we understand your need for an informed, friendly financier you can talk to who is on the “same wavelength” as you.

We have worked closely with thousands of clients throughout Australia, providing property investors with finance solutions to achieve their current and long-term goals.

We will determine your potential as an investor, discuss your goals, your current financial situation, and many other factors before identifying and organising the best loan for each of your properties.

Reviewing your current loans and structures in line with your goals initially and then ongoing is key to success. We can assist with the recommendation of property strategies to help you achieve your goals. Assessing your borrowing capacity and how to maximise it along with highlighting areas of risk and suggesting ways to mitigate those risks. Taking a strategic approach, having our ongoing support, understanding your position and being “Market Ready” will get you to where you want to be faster.

Investment Lending

In an ever changing investment lending environment let us help you find the most suitable lending solution. Be that buying your first, second or subsequent investment property, constructing a duplex or block of unit we can assist. Identifying your needs matching your plans to the correct lender at the right time is key. Not all banks are equal in the investment lending space. We work with a panel of lenders and will recommend the most suitable lender for your individuals deals.

Development/Commercial Finance

An area many personal investors do not explore is development or commercial property. We specialise in this area and can assist by matching the lender to the property and your future plans.

Complex Loan Structuring Advice

To grow your portfolio and continue to maximise your property investment options you need to ensure that each property and in turn the finance for it are enablers to allowing you to continue.

Structuring, financing, using the right lender, borrowing the right amount and timing can be the makes or breaks. Let us help you set your plan and achieve your goals.

SMSF Lending

Only some banks allow lending to SMSFs and often these come with a high level of complexity. We work with SMSFs everyday so are fully aware of changing requirements and the complex requirements for SMSF lending.

Personal Loans

We have many lenders available that specialise with Personal Loans. Personal loans can be secured or unsecured and vary greatly in pricing, amounts and turnaround times. Many also vary with what they will in fact lend for – let us help you match your needs to the solutions available.

    In his early teens, Jordan worked in the family business in wholesale fruit and vegetables. Working night shift and learning the fundamentals of relationship building, customer service and the drivers for making a business successful. From that moment Jordan knew he wanted to be in business, but he knew it was not the fruit game!

    Jordan started his finance journey at an entry level position in branch at a Big Four Bank and over the next five years progressed through various roles including Business Banking Manager and Business Development Manager within that Bank and another Big Four Bank. This gave Jordan deep and varied exposure to the home and business lending side of banking. It was here Jordan was shown the idea of leveraging your assets and investing in property. From that point Jordan knew he was going to get involved in helping people achieve their goals by property investing and education.

    In 2020 Jordan decided that mortgage broking was the best to achieve this. He could see this would allow him to provide clients more access and more options in putting strategies together to achieve their goals. Jordan’s primary focus is building strong, long lasting and professional relationships with his clients and being there throughout their entire property investing journey.

    Outside of business, Jordan enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends, playing soccer and watching both his teams Tottenham Hotspur and Richmond FC.

    Simone has had over 15 years’ experience working within the Banking & Finance Industry. She first started out as a Mortgage Broker at the age of 18. This was both challenging and rewarding and Simone experienced some good success in both broker and broker support roles although she was finally attracted by the bright lights of a Big Bank.  She started with a role in Credit Assessment for Residential Lending followed by roles in both Commercial and Agricultural Lending & Business Banking teams as an Assistant Manager.

    After 7 years of working for Banks, Simone saw an opportunity to support Finance Broking businesses through remote assistance of loan application lodgement and tracking as a third party provider.  This lead Simone to starting up a business with a Bank colleague and building that business from the ground up of the next few years.

    Simone came into contact with WiZDOM Loans through that business, and instantly loved the strategy, support, network and the relationships they had with their clients.

    Simone is also a keen property investor, investing with her family as this works well for her so she can spend more time doing what she is more so passionate about – finance and helping clients achieve their property goals.  Simone is particularly passionate about renovations having completed several over the years with cutting her teeth on her fist at age 23. She loves to be hands on and getting on the tools!

    In the time that Simone spends away from WiZDOM, she plays Netball for several teams and also at a state level for Indoor Netball. She also loves to get away up to the Shack on the Murray River to Water Ski and Wakeboard as often as possible.
