    Hi,

    Looking for a mortgage broker to help me in the short and long term. Currently, look at refinancing when my fixed rates end and also looking to purchase an IP.

    I am looking for a broker who will be with me for the long haul. I'm Melbourne based.

    Thanks

    There's quite a few good brokers here. Speak to Pete or Tobe if you want someone based in Melbourne.

    Regarding refinancing fixed rates, often the most suitable lender is the one you're currently with. An external refinance may not be necessary, but a critical point where fixed term expiry happens is often a great time to review your current loan structure.

    Purchasing an IP may be best done by releasing equity in your existing IPs in a separate loan account, using that as a deposit for future investment purchases. You'll need someone to run some borrowing power numbers for you to see what exactly you can do.

    Cheers,
    Redom

    There is one above called "Olf" - he also goes by Rolf. He is on the gold coast which is not too far.

    Richard Taylor is also up there too.
