Why Vie Financial Launceston?

  • At Vie Financial, we have working relationships with over 40 different lenders, allowing us to act as a bridge by connecting clients with lenders that best fit their needs.
  • Every customer situation is different. In any number of people looking at the same property, the individual circumstances of each will most likely determine the need for different lenders to secure the right financing for the property.

By the same virtue, any purchaser looking at properties with differing characteristics will most likely find that they require a financing solution governed partially by the property profile. Aspects of the property profile that will contribute to the requirement for a specific lender include location, size and type of property.

  • Therefore, it’s vital for us to understand the strengths of each customer’s circumstances as well as the strengths of the property they would like to purchase. This allows us to match our customer profiles with the most suitable lenders for both their circumstances and the property they’re looking to buy.
  • Fortunately, at Vie Financial, we’ve been able to develop strong relationships with our lenders, giving us an excellent understanding of each of their niches and what their appetite is for specific customer and property profiles. This allows to quickly and accurately connect each customer to their most suitable selection of lenders.
  • We streamline the entire process, making it easier for customers to secure the most suitable financing for their unique circumstances, and enjoy being a Launceston property owner.

How Do We Qualify Lenders to Work With?

Although we have 40+ lenders on our panel, we generally only use about a dozen or so on a regular basis. The others we work with when the need exists.

Amongst the handful of lenders we work with daily here in Launceston and our other offices, we’re able to cover the financial needs of most clients more than adequately. However, clients with more complex circumstances can take advantage of our expert knowledge and relationships with more specialised lenders as well.

  • When selecting a lender to work with, we look first and foremost at their service and products. We only work with lenders who do what they say they’re going to do when they say they’re going to do it.
  • That being said, we look at other criteria as well. Interest rates happen to be one of them. In addition to offering competitive rates, our partners must also be clear and consistent in their product offerings.
  • We also pay a lot of attention to terms. We avoid lenders with contracts that give them the right to introduce new charges whenever they deem fit or terms that aren’t in the best interest of clients.
  • Unfortunately, there’s always some lenders that don’t act in the customer’s best interest. For example, a couple of months ago the big four lenders decided to raise their interest rates despite the fact that the Reserve Bank of Australia has not adjusted the Cash Rate since August 2016. We hold lenders that operate this way (that is out of sync with the rest of the market) in low regard, and we are more hesitant in recommending them our business.

What Should Customers Look for (and Look Out for) When Choosing a Finance Broker in the Launceston Area?

Choosing a finance broker is a lot different than picking out a pair of shoes. The repercussions of the advice you receive can have real, lasting effects on the health of your finances and family life, so it’s a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Here are some things to consider:

  • Industry Experience

    Like lenders, when it comes to finance brokers, experience counts. Many brokers have only really entered the industry in the past few years or so, but some brokers have several years of experience in connecting property buyers with qualified lenders.

    At Vie Financial, we have people in our group with 10+ years of experience, and we have others who are just starting with fresh minds and ambitions.

    Vie Financial operates as a close network of people working in different pockets of the country, dealing with different customer scenarios every day. This provides an opportunity to frequently bounce scenarios and challenges off of one another. Over the years, we’ve found that the more people we have working with us to overcome particular challenges and hurdles, the better the outcome for our customers will be.

  • Dedication

    Try calling a potential broker before 9 am or after 5 pm and see if they answer. The broker industry is just like any other – some are more motivated than others. Banks are only open during business hours and follow very regimented policies. At Vie Financial, we don’t operate that way.

    We frequently work beyond regular business hours to fulfil the needs of our clients to ensure that we do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it. Whether it’s 8 am or 8 pm, we’re available when we’re needed and will stop at nothing to ensure the job gets done.

  • Listening Abilities

    We work with a variety of customers and pride ourselves on our ability to listen to the wants and needs of everyone. Whether you’re looking for a two-bedroom apartment and a low-interest rate or a large four-bedroom home and the very best terms, we will work with you to make sure you receive the very best financing for your wants, needs, and circumstances.

  • Referrals and Repeat Customers

    While new to Launceston, business is booming both here and at our other offices. A large part of this is due to the referrals and repeat business we receive.

    Not only do many of our customers refer their family and friends, but they often come back to us for additional home loans, investment property purchases, and so on.

  • Community Engagement

    We love to get actively involved in each community we serve, and we’re excited about engaging with the Launceston community and getting to know our neighbours.

    Through Franchise Principle, Jesse Medwin Vie Financial been actively involved with the Tasmanian-based medical research charity, the Clifford Craig Foundation, for the past six years.

  • Awards and Accolades

    Jesse Medwin, the Franchise Principle for Vie Financial’s Launceston office, has been specialising in finance since 2010. In that time, he has received several awards from various industry & franchise groups and was ranked as one of the “Top 30 Brokers Under 30” by The Advisor Magazine.

What Are Some of Our Launceston Success Stories?

At Vie Financial, we’re proud to have dozens of success stories from clients both past and present. One of our favourite Launceston success stories involved a young migrant family with four young children.

The family moved to Australia a couple of years ago and started with nothing. They saved for quite some time and wanted to purchase their own home, but were told by their bank that they could only afford a two bedroom home in their price range. With four young children, this simply wasn’t ideal.

Not surprisingly, their bank was no help at all – but fortunately for them, we were. With our friendly guidance, they were able to buy their dream block of land and build a four-bedroom home with study in a beautiful area of Launceston. We were able to assist them in obtaining the $20,000 First Home Builders Grant for choosing to build a new property, all whilst structuring their finance in a way that has saved them in excess of $18,000 in mortgage insurance.

To cap it all off, we were able to implement a comfortable repayment strategy that will see them owning their own home DEBT FREE within 15-years. At Vie Financial, we’re with you every step of the way, providing Advice for Life.

They went over and above to get me the loan which was successful and I now have a great investment working for my future. Thank you so much for your attention to detail . Nothing was too much trouble for them and I highly recommend them to anyone needing help with finances.read more

I can not speak more highly of Zak, what an outstanding young man that goes well and truly above the normal expectation. He is extremely hard working and genuinely cares for his clients. It didn't matter to him that it was a Saturday night to inform us that our finance was approved, which relieved the stress we were feeling. Such a caring, honest and very experienced financier who really knows what he is talking about.read more

Zak and Jesse were great to work with, and were in constant contact with us and all involved parties for our home purchase. They did everything possible to get us into our new home as quickly as possible, and got us the best rate available. The real estate agency that was listing the house was very impressed as well. It really felt like Vie Financial was in our corner throughout the process, and dealing with them was a pleasure.read more

Thank you to both of you for such excellent service.read more

I have had the pleasure of having a working relationship with several different broking businesses. Honestly to Zak, Jesse and the team at Vie, I have never seen a broker team so ready to assist, work endless hours to find the best outcomes for their client and so knowledgeable/up to date with the industry. They are perfectionists in a sense they will only ever do what is 100% right by the person and will not stop until the best outcome is achieved.read more

We purchased our first home through Jesse Medwin 6 years ago and his knowledge and experience was second to none. We recently asked Jesse to help us with the purchase of our second home in Queensland. He made it so easy, even with us being interstate, it was a breeze. Not only has he helped us achieve buying our second home but he refinanced our original home in Tasmania to allow us to now have our first investment property, which is something we never dreamed of having. He has tailored our home finances to put us in a great position for our future. Such a professional and absolute pleasure to work with. Couldn't reccomend him more highly.read more
