John has been great to deal with. Always very responsive regardless of where he was in the world, very knowledgeable and was always about to answer questions straight away, gave me options to choose from and he’s a friendly, good guy! Thanks John!

I've been working with John at Money Jar for over 12 months now. He's a very honest and reliable broker. At our initial meeting John took the time to teach me all about borrowing, although I still sometimes mix up power with capacity (my bad). John was clear about what conditions I should seek and gave me tips about making an offer. He was always quick to send property reports, even on the weekends! John gave me lots of options to choose from when it came to deciding which bank to choose and was able to give some insider info about their turn around times, I was on a tight schedule. John has always been friendly, funny, and fast. I look forward to working with him for all my future loan needs. Thanks John

John is a great broker and awesome guy. It is the first time we have used a broker or any third party. We have had wonderful service from him, and as a result, feel so much more in control of our finances and mortgage. Throughout our journey, John has been really good at explaining in simple terms the processes, concepts, and benefits of each step along the way. We highly recommend his service. It is the best money we could have spent, as we can see the benefits immediately from the recommedendations John has made for the changes to our mortgage setup. He also continues to check in with us to see how we are going, which we value a lot. He comes highly recommeded from us!

We got in touch with John through our financial planner. The first conversation with John was quite pleasant and we decided to stick with him to secure our mortage. Our home buying journey was extremely chaotic, to the point where we saw a house, put in an offer and then called John to secure the mortgage (without prior warning). John took on the challenge, crossed his t's, dotted his i's and helped us secure our mortgage within a really short timeframe. We highly recommend John if you're looking to secure a mortgage, especially if you are a first home buyer and have never been through the process and system before.

We recently had the pleasure of working with John from Money Jar Concept, and I must say it was an exceptional experience. Despite some initial hiccups on the bank's end, John made the refinancing process remarkably easy and stress-free. His expertise and humour turned what could have been a tedious task into a surprisingly enjoyable one. Hats off to Money Jar Concept for providing an exceptional refinancing experience. It's definitely a 5-star service!

My wife found this fella through social media. I was sceptical, to say the least. Buying a first home was far more difficult than I thought. John didn’t just help with navigating the quagmire that is home loan finance but he helped us, and encouraged us, throughout the process. Even when we took a long break from looking, as soon as we got back in touch he was on the case, and in our side. He put us in contact with an array of other professionals who helped as well. Honestly, if you are thinking of buying you really want someone like John in your corner. We can’t recommend him enough.

I found John on a local Facebook page. There were multiple people recommending him as a local broker. Now I understand why. John is approachable, knowledgeable and patient. There were multiple times I messaged John, stressed about the next steps. He would always tell me to trust the process which was correct. I’d highly recommend John as a broker to everyone!

Money Jar Concepts are great. John helped us get a great home loan when we did not look too good on paper and then to refinance a few years later to a rate much better than what the big 4 banks were offering. i recommend to everyone .the best!
