Did you know that it takes four to seven years for the average household to save a 20% deposit for their first home and avoid paying lender’s mortgage insurance? However, a new scheme promises to drastically reduce that time by dropping the required deposit to just 5%.

“I met Kathy in 2007 when I bought my first property. She took time to educate me on the process of buying and provided detailed information on different types of home loans, which made my decision making easier. She was efficient, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Since then I have bought number of other properties for which Kathy has successfully negotiated home loans for me.”Christian – Penrith
