Russel's Client Reviews

Running our own business, applying for a new home loan or refinancing can be complicated. Russel and Michael at Acceptance Finance did all the work for us and were able to find us a lender that suited our needs and with an interest rate nearly half of what we were previously paying. Do yourself a favour and reach out to the team at Acceptance Finance!

Phew, I'm now refinanced at a much better rate. Thanks Russel and Michael for the work you did to make this happen.

To say my application for a loan was challenging would not only be a big understatement but an insult to the talented Acceptance finance team of Russel Shaw and Minji. Watching Russel consistently jump through hoops demonstrated not only his ability to negotiate the intricate twists and turns of my loan requirements but highlighted his skill in handling a somewhat "nervous & impatient" client .Minji was the perfect partner in this scenario always remaining cool, calm and collected. Both true professionals and I am eternally grateful for their patience and professionalism.I now have great peace of mind and highly recommend them both. Thanks guys.
