What our clients have shared...

Playing in the Garden

Initially, we were looking for a finance broker who was able to assist us with our small business loan. It can always be an ordeal jumping through the bank's hoops as small business owners.

David made the process painless and simplistic for us. We have continued to engage in Davids exceptional service with our current investment loan. His honest and efficient approach to get the loan over the line took all the stress away from us.

We highly recommend David and his team for all your financial requirements.

From day one Astute East Brisbane has been fantastic. David Pearse and Andrew Podger, were professional, helpful and with me every step of the way.  I am happy to say that our first loan has been finalised and we are happy to be first-time landowners and soon to be homeowners. I will surely be working with Astute in the future and would recommend them to everyone. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.

David and the team at Astute in East Brisbane provided excellent advice to us when purchasing our first home. There was added complexity (foreign currency, Covid) and they were able to steer us through the process. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Both David and Andrew were fantastic! They not only helped us with all our refinancing needs, but they were also readily available to answer questions, support us through the process and help us navigate every step in a clear, concise way. We would not use anyone else! Thanks again David and Andrew!!
