Talk to Michael Sloan at Destiny Financial Solutions. I've been with him for a number of years.
he's on holidays at the moment, but ring and talk to Steve Richards in the mean time.

Why not try Alistair Perry from the forum here who is a regular contributor.DCHMember@dchJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 4
You can try MoneyChoice, who I have been with for a while, they are based in Richmond but come out to your home. Which is very convenient if you are working, as they will come out to you at 8pm at night if need be. They specialise in brokering for property investors.
Ask for Rozina Kovacevic on 94280755

Thanks for the recommendation Richard.
Alistair pleasure mate.
My philsophy anyone who contributes regularly and is good at what they do deserves to be recommended especially to people who use the forum.Alistair PerryParticipant@aperryJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 891
I agree, but I would go further. I am constantly frustrated with the poor overall standard of our industry, and I think forums like this are very good for putting brokers under scrutiny. Everything you say on an Internet forum is up for scrutiny and brokers (and other professionals) who have been long term contributors have obviously stood up to this and come through. I can't think of a better or more rigorous screening process.
Alistair dont start me on the standard of the industry – lol.
I cant believe that todays garage mechanic completing his Cert IV can be out there tomorrow advising on Finance structures and precuring Commercial deals for multi million $$$.
You are right forums such as this keep records of what you say for all to read and you can be held accountable to at least the forum members. It is just a great shame the rest of the industry cannot be so accountable.
I hear from new clients so often that Joe Bloggs who did our home loan is no longer in the industry can you pick up the pieces.
Anyway mate my personal crusade over here is to improving standards all round.
Good luck for 2008.mrdenn1sMember@mrdenn1sJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 18
I think you need to find a broker who understands your investment philosphy
I am a "capatialise the interest" kinda guy. My broker does the same thing, so the relationship works well
Most brokers i met before him didnt get this type of investing and just sold me on low interest rates, etc. This was the exact opposite of what i was looking for. I wanted an expert, not a salesman
I couldnt agree with you more mrdenn.
Would you use a broker who wasnt a property investor or use a Financial Planner who mapped out some wonderful strategy for your retirement if they themselves hadnt already retired.
All i was saying I believe in supporting people who make a worthwhile contribution to the forum hence my recommendation for Alistair.
Many guys come here in the hope they can snare a bit of business. Members like Alistair dont need the business but still give up their time to assist new investors in asnwering questions and providing information.mrdenn1sMember@mrdenn1sJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 18
Fair point re: Alaistair.
As a newby to these forums, I am loving the depth of knowedge.
If anyone want details to my broker, please ask. He is in Melbourne and a gun.

Stuart Wemyss from ProSolutions is who I have been using and I am most impressed with his service. I am based in Sydney and he in Melbourne. I think he sometimes writes on here under StuartW.
