why we’re awesome!


can see the passion & dedication

I haven’t seen anyone explaining the mortgage/insurance process in detail like you. Didn’t feel like dealing with a businessman, can see the passion & dedication in your work. You will always be our first point of contact for any financial related matters. Definitely would recommend to anyone asking for a financial advisor.

personal, detailed and honest help

Having personal, detailed and honest help was why our friends recommended Laurie and Cassandra. They were more than helpful (and patient) and did a great job in helping us come to the right decision-even though we live in Wellington and they are up in The Bay of Islands. Super helpful!!

cost effective and easy

My partner and I were buying our first joint property and due to settle on an expensive home, when Laurie asked: “What if? What if the worst happened and you died?” A grim enough thought, but worse to think my grieving partner could be kicked out of our home. Everything was done online, super-fast, efficient and easy. Life insurance gave me peace of mind.”

worthwhile in every way

Hi Laurie, just wanted to thank you for giving us the opportunity to move our life, income protection and health insurance policies to Awesome Mortgages four years ago.

I admit we were initially wary of changing providers because the idea of more paperwork and hassle was very off-putting. But you were right, it wasn’t nearly as bad as we thought, and it has most definitely been worthwhile in every way.

To begin with you took the time to understand in depth exactly what our needs and priorities were, and tailored our policies to suit us perfectly. You continue to monitor them annually to ensure we’re only paying for what we need – this is particularly important with our income protection because we are self-employed with fluctuating incomes. In this respect it’s been a very different experience from our previous providers who basically washed their hands of us once they had sold us our policies.

As you know we were previously both quite cynical about insurance but we’ve made two claims on our health policy in the last year and in both cases they have been paid out with a minimum of fuss. The providers you work with have been as straight up and reasonable as you said they were.

So all in all we’d like to say thank you for another great service and more excellent advice.
