Kieran O’Shea:‘Lachlan and Intuitive Finance were great to work with from start to finish! My first round of financing with a different company wasn’t approved (there’s a surprise) but he managed to turn everything around in about four days once all my forms were with him. He was reassuring, professional and supportive throughout the whole process. I would absolutely recommend anyone work with this company and in particular with Lachlan. I’ll certain use this team again for any financing requirements in the future. Very impressed!‘
