Would not recommend
Due to delayed and no communication from well home loans, it caused my life savings to disappear.
I am here to WARN you all to proceed at your own risk.
We are in recession currently due to COVID19 pandemic.
Well Home Loans not recommended at all.
John from credit assessment team is shame.
They took the time to make it happen
The refinancing of our multiple loans wasn’t exactly simple. After our existing bank couldn’t be bothered to provide us with any options whatsoever and another lender didn’t want to know about it, Well Home Loans came to the party. Both people I dealt with during the process took the time to listen to what we needed and Mick was excellent in the end stages of the approval process, getting it all over the line. They offered a very low interest rate at the time of application and had applied the recent 0.25% drop by settlement date.
Excellent service and fantastic rates
The refinance of our home and investment unit has recently completed. It wasn't a simple 2 for 2 refinance because we're looking to retire in a few years and we needed to restructure so that we would easily be able to sell the unit. The process was made pretty painless with the help of Glenn. Towards the end, Glenn was away for a bit but John stepped in to ensure the process kept moving and then handed back to Genn to finalise.
Most lenders claim that they are there to help their customers ... these guys REALLY ARE.
And the low rates are about to drop another 0.25% - thanks guys.
Great rates & customer service
Glenn, Patryk and John A provided a great loan application experience by answering questions promptly and thoroughly. Someone is always there to answer or return your call or email.
Other lenders I’ve experienced lack direct phone numbers (must always go through a queue or book an appointment) and have extended wait times.
While the application wasn’t perfect (paperwork seems excessive compared to other lenders and must be sent by physical mail. Supporting documents expire and must be resubmitted) overall the process was as painless as it could be.
Professional service and diligent team - operating at a level well above their competitors
The team at Well Home Loans offer a unique combination of highly competitive rates coupled with excellent customer service - so often hard to find in the market. I am a chartered accountant and work with many finance professionals and was pleased by the diligence, knowledge and responsiveness of Glenn and Patryk in particular over the refinance process. This is a professional team operating at a level well above their competitors. Highly recommend.
Good Service with Great Rates
We were very happy with the information and the service we got throughout the re-financing process for our 2 loans. Our contacts were Patryk (for the application process) and Glenn (for the approval process). It was nice to just have the one contact assigned to us for the duration of each stage. There was a little bit of to-ing and fro-ing in the initial stages to get the details straight (our applications were a little less straightforward than many) but all diligence was applied, all emails and calls were responded to promptly, their manner w...as always friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. It took a lot longer than we anticipated (about 3.5 months) and the process was challenging but we understood that that had a lot to do with the tightening up of requirements after the Royal Commission. (my partner says at this point, don't worry blokes, the missus will do most of the paperwork, haha). Settlement ending up happening on New Year's Eve which was a nice way to close off the year. After settlement the process of setting up our online banking was easy and the mobile platform (not app) works well too. Oh and of course the rates are great. Big saving on where we were before. Definitely recommend Well Home Loans.
Very Happy. Great Service, Great Product & Good Rate
Initially, I went through a different company but later withdrew my application after poor customer service. As first time buyer, trust, transparency and honesty are very important. Fortunately, I found them with all ‘Well Home Loans’. I can’t speak highly enough of John & Bret’s efforts, and their patience taking the time to explain process and reassuring me at every stage. One or two other companies offered slightly better rates, but I found ‘Well Homes’ overall product was much much better. I highly recommend this company. We are very grateful for all help to purchase our first home. Thanks
Grateful for excellent customer service and low interest rate
Glenn and the whole Well Home Loans staff have provided me with excellent service throughout the whole loan refinancing process, from loan application to the final settlement. Since this was the first time we did a refinancing of our home loan, we initially thought that it would be fraught with too many complexities. However, it turned out that those were straightforward, and I need not have to get a time off from my job to be able to comply with those requirements.
Glenn and the whole Well Home Loans staff had been very supportive throughout...the whole process and provided their utmost guidance. In the end, I’m so happy with the outcome, very low interest rate and excellent customer service. The interest rate during final settlement is, in fact, even lower than what was initially provided during the loan application process! Thanks Well Home Loans and more power!
excellent customer experience
Glenn and Brett were easy to talk to. They were quick to replay to our queries and to provide guidance on any aspect of the home loan application process. We understood the associated costs and are very happy with the rates we received for both loans - refinance and investment.
Good interest rate....painfully slow process
Customer service was mostly friendly and helpful
Costs were pretty much as expected
Rate is very good
Took around 3 months from my first application to final discharge of two loans I consolidated into one loan which is very long I feel. I think I asked the staff around eight times that I wanted both of my mortgages discharged as part of the settlement process and still ended up having to do it myself which was both annoying and confusing.
If your happy to wait through a long process the rate is worth it. Mine was not so urgent so ok in the end.
My experience with Well Home Loans was horrible, I just wasted my time & effort. Even though they offer cheap rates, this finance provider cater for selected clientele. Good for people who work Monday to Friday with fixed salary. They don't consider people work on rosters / on wages / on fringe benefits. Also, they consider only desktop valuation. They don't conduct a physical valuation.
- Verified customer
Glenn and the Well Home Loans team were nothing short of amazing. This was my first home loan and I had been told the application process is the most challenging part of purchasing a property. The reality was the complete opposite. The application process was the simplest part of my property journey.
The guidance and tutelage provide by Glenn was exceptional. No questions were too hard to answer and complex matters were broken down into understandable and relatable terms. I am truly grateful of both Glenn and Well Home Loans for assisting me on my journey.
Appalling customer service, 1 month of no reply despite 7 follow up emails/phonecalls
I have been absolutely appalled by the terrible customer service I have received from Well home loans this past few weeks. It has now been more than one month since I have had any contact from Brett, our supposed home loan consultant, despite a couple of follow up emails and several phone calls to him directly and to the 1300 number. Having been sick of being unable to contact Brett, I have spoken to Patrick on 2 occasions and requested some form of update to absolutely no avail, despite his assurances on both occasions that either Brett...or he would be back to me by the end of the day (now more than a week since my last phone call). I am not a demanding customer, however the behaviour of the representatives of Well home loans has meant that I will never recommend them as a lender to my peers, colleagues or family members. All that would have been required to appease me would have been a quick follow up email or phone call to update me on the process to date and whether anything further is required. However a distinct lack of respect and regard for me as a customer has left a very sour taste.
Excellent service setting up refinance loan
I dealt with Brett and John to organise a refinance of my home loan (previous lender would not match Well's rates). The service was excellent, above expectations. They made the effort to progress my application while I was on holiday, and kept me updated throughout the process, and were quick to respond to any questions. I have been recommending Well Home Loans to others, which is imho, the highest form of praise. Please keep up the brilliant work!
Awesome rate combine with awesome service
We refinance both our owner occupied and investment loan with Well Home Loan due to great rate advertised. The well home loan team has been assisting us the whole process of the refinance and made it looks easy he always go above and beyond with the process (even answer a phone call after work hours for a couple of question).
Great Rate, Great Service, can't recommended them enough

Hi ayasalah89, unfortunately we don't have house and land package loans available.
Hello. My husband and I are first home buyers and looking to buy a house to live in. We have 93,000 deposit and loooking into a house around 610,000. Since we don't have 20%, how much interest rate can we have and also would like to know how much LMI are we to expect.. thanks
Well HQ.Well Home Loans
Hi there dane,
Nice work saving up for your deposit and it's always exciting looking for your first home! We have different rates for both Fixed rate loans and Variable rate loans and you can see those on our website (https://www.wellhomeloans.com.au/home-loans/buying-a-house/). We do have different rates based on your LVR (if you're not sure what this is - learn more here: https://bit.ly/2JGtML8) and that will determine what sort of rate you could be eligible for. When needing to get an LMI quote, this is something that's best done with the help of our home loan consultants as it's usually based on your loan amount - give them a call on 1300 899 724 or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be able to help.
Hi dear Well Home Loans team,
My wife and I intend to build our first home next year, with a holding deposit paid for a block of land that will title early in 2021. As we will not have a full 20% deposit, my family who own a home offered to serve as guarantors to help us avoid paying the LMI. Can we apply for a loan with a guarantor?
Thank you in advance for your response,
Well HQ.Well Home Loans
Hi Damir36, congrats on the first home! It's nice that your family is able to help you out as well in order to avoid the LMI costs. The type of loan you're looking for is a normally referred to as a family guarantee loan and unfortunately we don't provide those. To double up, we also don't have construction loan products available at the moment. We're not too sure who would be a good lender so we would highly recommend looking for the services of a mortgage broker who can help you to find a lender that offers a construction family guarantee loan. Best of luck and we hope you find someone that's a great fit for you.
