When Did Vie Financial Open in Burnie?

Vie Financial Burnie was the second Vie Financial office to open in Tasmania, and has been assisting people of the North West Coast with their finance needs since February, 2017.

Gene Medwin – Vie Financial Franchisee, grew up in Burnie and has a background in accounting.  Gene possesses an intimate knowledge of the local area and a detailed understanding of the finance industry, the Australian taxation system, and small business, which enables him to provide specialised, high-quality advice.

Drawing on his extensive accounting and finance experience, Gene is extremely passionate about helping clients get from where they are, to where they want to be.

Why Work With Vie Financial?

In addition to local market knowledge, specialised finance advice and outstanding customer service, Vie Financial in Burnie has access to one of the most extensive lender panels in Australia, including all of the major banks.

Working with a professional who has access to such a large and diverse panel of lending institutions (rather than just one bank or a finance consultant with a small number of lenders), provides greater product choice, flexibility, terms, conditions, lending policies, and of course interest rates! This is what enables us to provide clients with a detailed strategy, tailored loan structure, and personalised product mix.

Vie Financial and the Burnie Community – a Perfect Match!

This local Tasmanian community has welcomed Vie Financial with open arms and given us a warm response. Through happy clients and word of mouth, we’ve been able to achieve steady growth and continue helping eager property buyers.

These types of referrals are the most effective in a small, regional town like Burnie. Regardless of the loan or the purpose, we treat every client equally, and the community respects our dedication and diligence in this regard.

Like Success Stories?

Similar to any other service-based business, you can get an accurate assessment of mortgage brokers by the number of people they’ve been able to help. Despite only being open a couple of short years, we’re happy to possess a lot of success stories and several repeat clients who come back to us for second home loans.

We’re proud to have several success stories, but here are two recently that stand out:


Client Success Story #1

A client was referred to Vie Financial by a local real estate agent after their application (which was submitted by another broker) was declined, due to location restrictions imposed by the lender on the post code they were attempting to purchase a property within.

We were able to quickly identify a number of lenders who were willing to finance properties located within the postcode the clients wished to purchase, and secured an approval within three days.

Client Success Story #2

A couple who were looking to purchase their first property were referred to Vie Financial in Burnie by another local real estate agent. They had already spoken with an alternative broker, who had them complete and submit a form containing all of their financial details. After reviewing the form the broker phoned to advise there was nothing they could do to assist them at this time, due to the size of their deposit.

We met with the couple, and while they did not have a large deposit, were able to assist them purchase the property they had chosen.

One of them was a carpenter, and they very quickly made a number of low cost, value adding improvements to the property. Within less than twelve months, Vie Financial Burnie assisted the couple utilise the added value they created (equity), and purchase their second property.

The Lesson?

Vie Financial Burnie do not like or believe in the word “cant”. Nor do we believe in telling customers that we “aren’t able to help them”. There is always something we can do to assist our clients get from where they currently are, to where they want to get to. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure we deliver on this. When our clients win, we win!

This is the second time we have used Vie Financial to help with a loan. There were a few hiccups along the way, as is usually expected... with big banks, but Gene helped us get through it, provided regular updates and we got there in the end. Will recommend in the more

I was at the end of my tether by the time I found Gene. I had spent months trying to organize finance for a home loan, but to no avail. I... was told time and time again that there's no way I could get the loan, it wasn't even worth trying. And then Gene called. He told me straight up that it would be tight, but he thinks he can make it work. I had hope. Three months later, my family and I are living in our dream home and we couldn't be happier. Gene wasn't always contactable, but he certainly knows his job. Don't give up before speaking with Gene. You just never know. I will definitely use him again in the more
