The Mandeville Street office (Formerly Whitmore Office) is our newest investment into Christchurch. We have been growing and helping more Cantabrians than ever before become debt free faster. In March 2020 we have had to move on from our Whitmore Street office as we have just outgrown it and as such we wanted to create a place that both our staff/consultants and our clients were proud of. So we have fully renovated the Mandeville st Building and created a great environment with a true Canterbury theme that clients can visit, with ample parking out back and also facilities to be able to run Seminars to offer even more value to our clients. Our goal is to help as many Cantabrians as possible to achieve their financial goals and this office provides the space for us to be able to do this for many years into the future

"John has been a great source of guidance and reassurance since we started the home buying process with NZHL. We left our first meeting with John feeling very hopeful and confident about our plans to be home owners, and he was there to provide us with assistance at the drop of a hat, even on a Sunday afternoon when we were fretting at open homes. Now that we are living in our first home, the process has been as smooth and rewarding he promised us it would be, and we couldn’t be happier about the personalised guidance and above and beyond service we received. Talk soon!"

"Our partnership with John has been nothing short of exceptional. We have the privilege of being reasonably high earners but without the discipline to be fully financially independent. With John’s expertise, guidance and practical tools we have been able to quickly recreate our financial position and make some significant progress toward financial independence in a short period of time. We have sought John’s view on mortgage financing options, insurance, budget structuring and online tools and at every turn John has been absolutely on point. Above all we’ve found John to be a top bloke, of high integrity, interesting , thoughtful and smart. We trust John, and rate the NZHL service and products, and highly recommend both of them to you."

"With being single and having to manage a mortgage on my own, I have to say the NZHL team made it easy for me – especially when I needed any extra “top ups” to buy a car, redecorate my house, etc – it was never a problem. The annual “catch ups” with Nic Yates was always productive and helpful to keep me on track. I’m now debt free and enjoying life – thanks guys."

"We have been New Zealand Home Loans customers since 2000, and currently have two properties. As things were running themselves, we didn’t spend any time thinking about our mortgages, or place any importance on attending regular reviews. Recently however, we decided to purchase another home while placing our current residential property on the rental market. This meant a big overhaul of the finances including establishment of a company, and sorting the confusing myriad of insurances we had managed to acquire along the way. Not only was a review of the financials long overdue, but where to start? The team at New Zealand Home Loans organised all our paperwork into a manageable and comprehensive proposal, negotiated a very competitive interest rate that raised the eyebrows of our lawyer, and did so within an incredibly short time frame. I cannot speak highly enough of the professional and knowledgeable experience we received from New Zealand Home Loans and in particular Nic Yates. We strongly recommend their service and skill to any new or perspective property owner. We felt they were truly on our side to make our dream home happen, and we are secure in the knowledge our biggest assets are being well taken care of, now and for the future."

"Recently we were referred to Ben Whitty at New Zealand Home Loans, we made the decision to switch from our current bank to NZHL. It has been the best decision for us, Ben has been there from the start explaining everything clearly and guiding us through our new build loan, previous loan and ensuring we have the right insurances for our family. Dealing with Ben has been very refreshing, his enthusiasm for what he does and his professionalism has made it very easy and stress-free for us as clients. We highly recommend Ben at NZHL and we look forward to continuing our business with him. "

"Hi Simon Thought we would contact you to thank you & Nic for getting us to the position of being mortgage free. It’s been some 4 years since becoming a client of NZHL, still remember in that first meeting you saying that you would help us reduce our debt and achieve some of the milestones we set. Well we achieved exactly that with the help of NZHL, not only did we stick to maximising our payments to become mortgage free but we also saved enough to be able to go on an Africian safari as well. Don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner with NZHL. The NZHL team has made this so hassle free and in the process made us feel valued clients during our regular meetings with Nic. Thank you all for getting us to this position, look forward to working with you again to fulfil our future dreams. Cheers"

"My wife and I decided to head to the CHCH Home Show a few months back to fill in the day. While there we came across a NZHL stand that had a sign saying “Refinancing your Home Loan” We both kept walking and started discussing our state of play and that we were really treading water with our current bank set up and it wouldn’t hurt to see what advice and structure they have to offer. We had a discussion on what our current set up was and what we were looking for in flexibility of our finances. We had no expectations. This proved to be a master stroke as what happened over the next 4 weeks was meeting with an honest down to earth person from NZHL (LEE) who came to our house and we had a sit down talk. From there, Lee went away and drafted up a proposal to suit our needs. We found Lee to be an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was not judgemental of our situation. Never forced us into anything we were not comfortable with and explained things in simple terms that we both could relate to. We have now been with NZHL for 8 weeks and already we are seeing the benefits financially. My wife and I are finally feeling like we have control of our finances and the added bonus is we are paying less a fortnight and will pay off our mortgage 6 years quicker than that of our previous bank loan set up. I strongly advise if you feel like you are in a stalemate with your finances like we were, to give Lee a call. It doesn’t cost anything for a discussion that could save you money in the long run. He might even buy you a coffee."

"After a frustrating time with with another mortgage broker where we were ready to give up our dream of home ownership, we were delighted to be put in contact with John at NZHL, not only did he manage to secure us our home loan, but did so in a way that took out the stress of a first home loan set up… John and the staff at the Whitmore office and the call centre for the home loan banking are very friendly at all times and go above and beyond to explain all processes to you at all times so yo know exactly where you are at… Thoroughly recommend contacting John especially if you are a first home buyer like us!

"I’d just like to say that our experience with New Zealand Home Loans has been fantastic. You have made us feel very comfortable the whole way, and always kept us informed which has been great. Sometimes people forget the customer doesn’t know all the little things that happen in the mortgage world. And not just from yourself, Deb has fantastic customer service skills, she is always so pleasant to talk to and never made us feel pressured. We have been made to feel that our business is very important to you and there is not enough companies out there that share the same attributes. It really has been such an easy friendly experience from start to finish and we really appreciate how you all have helped our family. Word of mouth is the cheapest form of advertising and i can assure you i will be recommending New Zealand home loans to all our family and friends.Once again Brad thank you very much, we look forward to getting the mortgage paid off and moving onto those milestones!"

We found their way of thinking has allowed us to use our equity in ways we had never considered before, live within our means, and reduce debt while achieving our milestones. Thanks to New Zealand Home Loans’ proposals and systems we believe we are in a much sounder financial position and that our money is working much harder for us and helping us realise our dreams.

The interest payments we will be saving on our mortgage with NZHL is almost half another house – we can’t believe it! We have found Debtnav to be a very useful tool in being able to visualise how fast we are paying off our mortgage and the real-time feature encourages us to pay it off even faster. Simon has given us wonderful service – much better than the other banks out there, where you are often just a number to them. We feel like valued customers and really appreciate that."

"In 2014 I had the opportunity to sit down with Simon Morris and have him introduce us to the NZ Home Loans brand and more specifically to the opportunity to approach our personal mortgage lending in a different way. Working in financial services myself I was already aware of the system and was really impressed when I saw it in action for the first time. Not only did I find the software user friendly but it also had an impact on my wife who immediately took a more active role in tracking our spending and debt repayment. One of the most satisfying aspects of the home loan process was the attention Simon paid to setting up our lending in a manner which worked for us and made sense to us. There were several follow-up calls from Simon and his team to make sure we were on track and no limit to the customer service I received from the main call centre. But the real benefit we received was a complete buy in to the notion of paying off your loan earlier, doing it smarter and utilizing your excess money more productively. We managed to pay down a significant portion of our loan in the first 2 years all the while achieving the milestones we set such as our family holidays, replacing a vehicle and personal savings. Simon is a complete professional and someone we have grown to rely on for our mortgage advice. I have no doubt he will help many people over the course of his career pay off their homes much earlier than they would have otherwise."

"My partner and I would like to put in a very big THANK YOU to John McKee for the level of service he supplied us. We had been with one of the major banks for a number of years and were not happy with the service they provided. We had been asking for a change to the way our mortgage was set up a number of times. We Had to chase them to renew at the end of fixed terms. A highly stressful time. We made a call to NZHL, John then called us back to set up a time to meet and go through our options. John explained to us what he was planning to do and how it would benefit us in the long run to make us mortgage free faster. He also showed is the debit nav tracker, NZHL App and the web site where we could view all our transactions and manage or debit. We went away for a week and meet back with John. On our second meeting we signed up then and there we were really happy with what was projected for a mortgage and want to proceed asap. John also mention he was a able to look at our insurances for Life and income protection. John reviewed these and came back with a better cover at the same price again great service and we signed up then. Since we have signed over I feel like we have more control over our income and we can see where it’s going and where the best place to put/leave our income. At no time did we feel pressured to sign over to NZHL. All the facts and figures were laid out in front of us and we made the decision. So once again thank you John for introducing us to NZHL. I feel a lot more comfortable with were we are at with our finances since we have signed up to NZHL"
