Vie Financial Devonport

Devonport's Most Trusted Mortgage Brokers and Finance Facilitators

Since early 2016, Vie Financial and our team of dedicated brokers have changed the financial landscape of Devonport. Before Vie Financial’s arrival, the region had few places to turn for financing. Through building solid relationships with clients, we earned the respect of local builders and real estate agents and with respect came referrals.

Good news always travels fast, and word of the arrival of a dynamic nationally backed franchise spread quickly. At Vie, building long term relationships with our clients is important to us, and it did not take long before our satisfied customers began to send a steady stream of referrals our way.

Established Yet, Personal Finance Brokers

It is easy to feel a bit lost and out of your element when dealing with a large mortgage company or a bank. That is why we go out of our way to bring our own professional, personalised service to everyone who contacts us. Whether you need one of our brokers to pop out to see you or you have a question for us at 7:00 AM, we are committed to being available when our clients need us, not just from 10:00am – 4:00pm Monday to Friday (who hasn’t been frustrated by their local banks restrictive operating hours)!

All Situations Are Unique

We know that every situation is different, and each customer has a unique set of circumstances. At Vie, we do not push our clients into one-size-fits-all financing. In fact, if we are not able to create a situation that puts you in a significantly better position than when we met, we will not proceed.

  • Assisting to set up a savings plan to raise a down payment/deposit.
  • Preparing a budget.
  • Explaining where the client’s money goes each month to help manage any spending habits that may become problematic if left unchecked.

Devonport Case Study

Our first loan was memorable for a few reasons. A young couple looking for finance contacted us before our office was officially open.

Each of the applicants had credit-related issues showing on their credit reports. After being referred to Vie, they contacted us because their existing broker had compounded their credit issues by lodging multiple credit inquiries simultaneously. The property the clients were trying to purchase was also located in a North Western Tasmanian postcode, which is deemed unacceptable by many lenders.

We found a suitable loan and managed to obtain finance approval for an almost identical property, located in a different postcode, borrowing 95 per cent of the property’s value. Many lenders were only willing to lend up to 80% on this particular property, which would have required a deposit of 20% plus costs.

We were refinancing our home and building a new home and had some roadblocks with our previous lender. We were told to give Gene Medwin a call and see what he could do for us. Gene had no problems in giving us everything we wanted and nothing seemed an issue for him. Gene was very professional and didn’t beat around the bush with anything. He was prompt in dealing with all of our questions. I have no hesitation in recommending Gene for all loans and financial matters.read more

When my partner and I were looking for a home loan, a friend recommended Gene Medwin to us. Although we were based in Victoria at the time, this did not stop Gene from communicating with us frequently and efficiently. Gene notified us of documents that would have otherwise been sitting at the bank without us being informed. We found Gene to be extremely helpful in answering any questions we had. We would definitely recommend Gene and would contact VIE Financial again in the future.read more
