James Faalvey who is an accountant was fantastic during our long call. He was very knowledgeable. Helped to understand my personal situation and gave me advice accordingly. He was detailed, thorough and very patient as I had a lot of questions. I really appreciated his expertise and guidance.

Phil and Karly at Crunch Mortgages really helped make our lives easier as we decided on our forever home. Unfortunately due to complications we had to restart the process with 3 different properties and they were both extremely supportive, providing us with updated figures and documents and continuously checking in with the progress made. We finally completed today and could not be happier with the service we received.
