The team at iRefi.co.nz are passionate about putting people over profits. We work together, learn together and share knowledge as you would expect a sports team to support each other.
iRefi was started by Macleans College school friends Andrew and Chuck (Andrew used to coach Chuck at rugby). They previously spent time building software for mortgage and insurance advisers but found most businesses were slow to adapt to the new world of technology, and were often difficult to help.
The thing that really frustrated the pair was that this often left the adviser’s clients worse-off, bogged down in paperwork, and usually getting a poor level of service by commissioned advisers who were very self motivated. They knew they could do better, and started iRefi Mortgages. In less than 12 months, they had reviewed over $1 billion worth of lending for New Zealanders.
Blandon Leung was also instrumental in the success of iRefi from the beginning, bringing a wealth of previous mortgage experience to the table and a passion for seeing his clients achieve a brighter financial future. From the beginning, it was his efforts that kept the team sailing in the right direction, and focused on keeping our clients happy, healthy, and wealthy.
Of course, Ben & Jon Krebs our lead developers provide the engine of growth for the business, having pulled many sleepless nights building the platform that’s saved our clients and advisers thousands of hours of admin.
I would just like to thank the team for all your help with refinacing my mortage. It was a fairly straight forward process and even better, all done online. I like the way my loans have been set up, which means I should be able to pay off my mortgage sooner 😊 and save alot of interest
Huge thank you to Dan and Paul for your great service, you both made it so easy for us. It's quite rare that you get someone to go out of their way to make sure you understand everything, I would happily recommend you to anyone I know that is thinking of a new or refinancing a mortgage. Thanks again and Merry Christmas
Big thank you to Dan and Chuck for taking all the stress out of the refinance process you've just done for me. Your customer service has been outstanding.
Recently we have called on Blandon again to help us secure another loan, and he made the process so easy. He met with us to address our questions and concerns and gave valuable advice. We really appreciate that.
I'd like to thank you for organizing and renegotiating my mortgage and consolidated loan. I was quite happy with the results and am grateful for the work and effort you have put into helping me. I particularly appreciate your patience in explaining and simplifying banking concepts and jargon to me so that I made better informed decisions. The communication was also very good. Great job! Happy to recommend your services to friends and family.
Fantastic, collaborative and respectful team to work with from Andrew to the broker who worked closely with us. We will always use them
Huge thanks to Dylan and Blandon who got me a great deal when it was time to refix my Mortgage. Brilliant service, good communication and professional advice! :)
Seriously amazing service from David! Couldn't recommend him and/or Irefi more. Outstanding dedication to their customers' needs. Thanks again!
Great experience with Daniel, lowest rate available and always quick to respond to queries. Highly recommend to others looking for brokers.
Dylan and Blandon from IReFi got me a really good deal when it was time to refix my Mortgage. Trouble free and the best rates around. Very happy with their service :)
Brandon knows his stuff, knows what counts and gets to the point. One of the best I've dealt with, nothing but top marks for these guys.
Blandon was excellent in helping us refinance, great advice and above and beyond to make this happen during the holiday period. I fully recommend iRefi and will definitely use them again.
Went to iRefi for our first mortgage and it couldn't have gone any smoother. Brandon and his brother Dan were so easy to work with and were very knowledgeable and always available for any questions I had. Thanks for the awesome work guys.
I just contacted IRefi to see if I could get some advice on break fees and refixing a home loan and I have to say I was very impressed with the quick communication and helpful advice I received. Especially as we are not customers yet and I just wanted some quick info. We'll definitely be back in touch when we need to refinance. Thanks again
Andrew was very helpful in getting me to consider my all options before selling a property. He helped me examine future growth and holding strategies I hadn't given much thought to previously. I was grateful that he didn't use any pressure tactics or try to get new to see it "his way". He was genuine in his willingness to crunch some numbers without charging me. I give him the thumbs up!
I dealt with Jeremy who did all the hard work for me to get a great rate for refixing our mortgage. Jeremy was easy to get hold of when I needed and was happy to answer all my questions. It couldn't have been easier! I would highly recommend iRefi if you need help to find the best interest rate deal!
thanks heaps guys. you saved us lots getting a great rate for our mortgage. you were so patient and helpful explaining everything, i am totally computer illiterate and they were on phone talking me through every step. they always called back and followed up how everything was going.
Highly recommended. I switched to using irefi after learning they are able to get me a lower rate than my ex broker could offer me. The process was extremely simple and fast. Everything was done online on their website (you can save changes if not able to complete in 1 go), and over several emails and you are done. Blandon was also very helpful over the phone to answer any questions that I had, and is always responsive. Their services are completely free to use. They run presentations and seminars on how to manage your finances and investments. I recommended them to several other friends who are looking at refinancing and they were all surprised at the low rate I got from irefi. Contact them and they can help you get a better rate. 😊
I found David to be extremely reactive to our challenging application. Being self employed in a relatively new business made this application difficult for the banks from the outset, but David showed considerable negotiation skill with the bank to get it over the line and with excellent rates to boot. I would highly recommend David and IRrefi to anyone looking for a standard mortgage or are having difficulty based on the nature of their income.
Highly recommend iRefi if you are looking at re-fixing/financing solutions! Their offers were far lower than the bank were offering, saving me money. It certainly paid off enquiring with them. Dylan Brooks took the time to understand my situation and needs, with everything sorted in a few emails and set up on my behalf. All for free! They are Auckland based but will assist anyone nationwide - I am in Christchurch. I will continue to use their services -Thank you Dylan Brooks and team!
I chanced upon iRefi's website while browsing for a mortgage broker in early 2017 to help sort out the finance for my new build. I entered my details on the website and Andrew called me in under 10 mins! As I was only due for settlement in Dec 2017. He told me that he will contact me again in Nov. I wasn't expecting him to call me back but he did and he did and he did (as scheduled).....every time the settlement was delayed. We worked with David Chamberlain closer to settlement. He was extremely attentive to our goals and requirements and helped tailor our loan to best suit our finances. We couldn't be happier with the interest rates/cashback that he managed to secure and the personalized service that he offered. Cannot recommend iRefi enough. The level of service way surpassed our expectations. Look forward to working with you guys again!!
Blandon, Dylan & Andrew are very good at what they do. They got us a very good rate and due to this if we have to break the mortgage even the break fees will be less because of their efforts. Highly recommend, thanks to the iRefi team of from a very happy customer :)
Chuck, Paul and the guys at iRefi have got me a great deal on my mortgage, saving us thousands in interest costs and allowing us to look at an investment property as well - all through their online system. Thanks guys.
The idea of a mortgage broker frightens me, but not these guys.. no problem is too big, no drama too small. These guys looked after us so well, extremely flexible and worked to our schedule
