Ask for Danny for mortgages he is excellent - 10/10. I called him on the Monday and had an agreement in principle the next day from ASB. He knows the ASB mortgage person so was able to get results extremely quickly. He came back to me on every question within the hour, nothing was too much. I don’t think we would have got our house without his support as the situation was complex (to say the least), we had to put a finance clause in, but he called the estate agent on our behalf and really went the extra mile. So pleased we picked Danny!

As a busy family, we try to fit everything in our day as possible. Taxi the kids to sports, music lessons and haka practice as well as work. Matt has supported our family and is now apart of the family. Why? because he gives TIME. Ours and the kids future is a journey and Matt is a massive part of that. T.P.C finance Thanks Matt

I cannot recommend the team at The People's Finance enough! Matt supported us through the whole process, was incredibly flexible and went above and beyond to get us into our first home. Louise made the insurance process a breeze, she kept it all simple and got us an amazing deal. Thanks again to everyone for their support, humour and positivity!!

We are over the moon that we decided to go with The Peoples Company and work with Danny on buying our first home! No matter what question we asked or what time I text him he always replied straight away with great advice. Danny was punctual, approachable and motivating and I will be recommending him to others.

Matt at The People's Finance is bloody amazing! He really knows his stuff and goes the extra mile to help out. I was looking for my first home for a long time and Matt was on the other end of the phone every step of the way. Made the whole process super easy for me and was great to deal with. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a hand with finances. Thanks to Matt and the whole team.

Highly recommend Matt (or any of the others at The Peoples!) Matt helped me with a small home loan top to purchase a cabin (rather than paying rent on one), which I couldn't arrange direct with the bank! Although a small task now...he explained all the options going forward for the future to make the best choice for today. Will not hesitate to reassess in 12months for re-fixing my whole mortgage and maybe our next step on the property ladder! Matt is only ever a phone call away for any advice and random questions I might have!!

What can I say about the people’s company..The greatest group of people combined. They made our lives so easy, buying a house and the insurance side of things...Matt with his charm, humour and advice helped us get into our first home when we were so nervous. He put up with my constant texting at all hours and was there for us every step of the way. He got us our house and we will be eternally grateful! Then in came Lou the insurance extraordinaire, she took us through everything and now we are sorted! We told her what we wanted and she came back with it all served up to us ready to go. I can’t recommend these guys enough.. a good laugh and so wonderfully supportive. Thanks so much guys for doing you!
