What people are saying about us

I have been most impressed with the friendly and helpful staff at Intuitive Finance. I had no idea what I was doing as it is my first property that I have purchased. I felt very confident having you to guide me through the process. I had all my trust in you and honesty is everything in a situation like this. I would highly recommend you to all my friends and family.

Claire
We had a positive experience with the team at Intuitive Finance in dealing with the financial aspects of our first investment property. The staff were professional, friendly, and responded promptly with any of our concerns. We would highly recommend their services.

Warren & Janine
Andrew Mirams tailored an arrangement to fit our needs where the banks wanted to fit us into the standard arrangement with a ‘take it or leave it’ approach. Andrew provided a personalised, experienced service far superior to the major banks. Most importantly the loan arrangement was much better than what the banks offered.

Richard
The team at Intuitive Finance have successfully provided some creative finance solutions to allow us to refinance the portfolio, access equity and purchase additional properties. The whole process had been handled smoothly and professionally. Give them a call. Now.
