Craig Nevill - Finance Manager

Craig’s speciality is making clients dreams happen whether it be to buy a new home or investment property, secure funds for a renovation or even reduce their expenses with a smarter loan option or better interest rate. Craig’s working life has been dedicated to the banking and finance industry and he loves being able to use the experience and knowledge his gained over the last 20 years, working with some of Australia’s biggest banks and mortgage brokerages, to help others to save money.

When Craig is not working, like many others he enjoys watching a wide array of sports. With two children Joshua and Abbey also loving sport and as passionate you’ll often see Craig watching them try out their skills on the sporting fields most weekends.

Not all banks lend the same. Craig provides access to hundreds of home loan products and works with banks and credit departments everyday so he knows which bank will be more responsive to your individual situation.

Whether you are a first homebuyer, upgrader, investor, renovator, self-employed borrower or business owner, single applicant, or even an overseas borrower, the fact is, not every bank will look at you the same way and that will impact both the amount of money you can borrow and how much it will cost you.
