Excellent service and very low rate.
I recently obtained a home loan from Reduce Home Loans for the purchase of a new home. Not only were they able to offer me a super-competitive interest rate, they also provided exceptional customer service. Mr David Easey and his colleagues were very friendly, responsive and professional throughout the process, and I was very impressed by the effort David made to make things happen in time for me. I'd highly recommend Reduce Home Loans to anyone considering a home loan.
Good experience- lowest rate and good communication.
Loan was approved in a timely manner with good communication throughout process.
I would recommend them as they are also the lowest rate available.
Everything completed online via email and phone calls.
Extremely satisfied with my customer service experience. Reduce representative was always there to answer questions as required.
No extra costs or issues with the loan. Very happy with the loan setup costs compared to other lenders.
Very satisfied with the rate I received.
Great rate on home loan. Very happy.
Great rates, low establishment fees and no on going fees. Very happy with my loan and the service of reduce home loans. Highly recommended if you want to save on your rate. Could process applications a bit faster, however only minor complaint.
Glad we made the swap!!!
Great rate and it was an easy process to swap from our previous bank. Very knowledgeable staff, who were easy to talk to and happy to answer any questions. Thanks heaps Jess!
Cheapest rates our of any lender. They even gave me the cheapest rate when I didn’t completely qualify. Very responsive customer service and always able and willing to answer my questions.
Great communication, great low rate
One of the lower rates I found on the market. Bryce was brilliant at working around my busy schedule and kept in regular contact. Happily answered all my questions and made sure everything ran smoothly.
Nothing short of outstanding
I was very nicely surprised at the excellent service I received from Reduce Home Loans. From their branding on their web-site I initially perceived them to be a cheap, cut corners, internet brokerage. Truth of it is that I received VIP treatment from them. David, who was the Reduce broker I first made contact with, gave me his mobile number and was always super-quick to respond, whether I texted, called of emailed. He had a solid sense of urgency as things needed to move quickly with the short settlement period. If there were any delays (not due to the fault of Reduce) David immediately escalated and got things resolved right away. The rate they got me for my home loan was also head and shoulders better than the rest.
Good interest rate. Process was efficient up to the Settlement Agent which needed some management. Offering and features were better than expected for the entity. All good in the end.
Love the best rate in all over Australia
Process was well explained and easy to follow. Rhyse guided us all the way through, he was just an email away, attended to our inquiries almost immediately . I wouldn’t hesitate a single moment to recommend Reduced Homeloan to my family and friends.
Great knowledge and service
My broker was David Easey and he explained the process very clearly and took his time to discuss the pros and cons of different loan types. He was prompt in replying to any of my queries over the phone or email. I'm glad that I went through reduce home loans for my mortgage. I was also assisted by Kurt Trendle and Jet Curtis who were also very knowledgeable and provided great customer service.
unhappy with home loan manager !
Not happy at all with the customer service that we received from home loan manager (don't want to put his name here). He seemed to be more conscious about his consulting time than finding out best possible options for us. He was handling too many clients that he seemed to forgot us. Anyway, after emailing him couple of times, he finally gave us a borrowing loan amount and asked to upload documents. We uploaded all the required documents in the client portal but after waiting for 3/4 weeks he then emailed us that the borrowing calculator has be...en updated recently and our borrowing capacity has become much less. Anyway, we agreed to proceed with less loan amount and asked to submit our application to loan assessor. The loan assessor had few questions which I already answered to my home loan manager. Since then I have not heard anything from him. It's been for than 4 weeks now. All in all, 2 and half months gone without getting any result reduced home loan. Later I have gone with another lender and got approval for much higher loan amount within 2 weeks.
Good rate and responsive service
Excellent customer service, best rate available and very responsive. Made a complex process simple to navigate. Offered some good ideas that allowed us to structure our loans in a cost effective way. Highly recommended.
Easy & fast
As a FHB I was quite stressed about the loan application process and deadlines. David got my loan pre-approved and final approved within less than one month! He also helped me negotiating a rate and package suited for me. Thank you! I found the process quite simple, easy and smooth. Definitely recommend.
Reduce staff are great help
I chose Reduce because their rates were the most competitive, but be prepared to submit a lot more documents than other lenders, and multiple times if the process gets drawn out. Otherwise, the service I received from Jacqueline from Reduce Home Loans was fantastic. She was very helpful, even helping me to change to a lower interest option with a higher LVR midway through the application at my request and gave regular updates on how my application was progressing since my case was unique. All while she was very patient and thorough and answered...my many questions. However, I would ask the lender (mortgageez) to avoid using Galilee in future as their solicitors, since their communication was poor and unprofessional, if they had spent the time to explain what needed to be done ahead of time it would not have drawn out the time to settle. The settlement day got delayed twice as a result, and the second time was because they miscalculated the shortfall!
Questions & Answers
Why are the fees so huge and why are so many members accusing you of bait and switch, where months after they have their loans established they get a letter advising their interest rates are going up?
Some of the comments are quite serious and places doubts on whether Reduce can then be trusted or not if they sign you up on one rate, only to increase it in a few months. Has many people experienced it?
Also people are saying their exit fees are very high. How high are they compared to others?
I am considering refinancing soon with reduce and I was wondering if there rates go up soon after changing over. I was convinced a few years ago by a broker to refinance with AFG and 2 days after my loan changed over the rate went up quite a bit and I would have been better off staying with Peoples choice. I don't want to waste my time changing if this will happen again.
I am an existing customer my rate was 2.42% it will soon reduce to 2.27%. I have not experienced any issues with rates, although I have noticed they are now advertising at 1.77% so do not reward loyalty. The process to refinance is beyond slow, frustrating and you need to jump through hoops expect it to be even months before it is finalised. So you need to weight that up.
I am also an existing customer at current rate of 3.94% IO Investor loan when current advertised is 3.19% for the same product. Contacted my manager who said that no improvements to rate are possible. I'm now looking at refinance for 2 loan products elsewhere closer to the advertised Reduce interest rate. No reward once you are signed up.
They don’t reward loyalty. It’s disgusting they advertise new loans 0.5% lower than loyal customers. Also the discharge fees are excessive!
