In addition to arranging finance for his many satisfied clients, John has regularly spoken at seminars and workshops on wealth creation and property investment.

John, on why he is a Credit Advisor or Mortgage Planner -

I love my job. Every single day I come to work, I get to inspire people to do the things that inspire them. Its fun looking for different strategies or structures that will meet each client's requirements and allow them to flourish financially. I am not even sure I am just a Credit Advisor either. There is a real joy in showing people how to pay down their debt quickly or how to be financially savvy, something none of us are taught at school. It's more about looking after your financial well-being, and I can't think of any other name that describes it.

Inspired Finance Group Pty Ltd

Inspired Finance Group is the preferred choice for those clients that seek honest, reliable service and a lending solution to suit their needs.

We specialise in providing finance to homebuyers and all types of investors, and we are accredited with more than 40 lenders. Our clients reside all over Australia, and own properties in every state.

As a broker, we do not owe our loyalty to any specific bank or lending organisation and do not offer a competing product, ensuring that we have no conflict of interest, unlike bank employees or other broker/finance organisations that sell their own products.

If you are looking for a home loan, then any Mortgage Broker can provide one. The service should be free and you will be provided with options, but only from lenders that the broker has familiarised himself with! However at Inspired Finance Group we offer more than just another Mortgage Broking service, because we are Mortgage Planning and Structuring Specialists and are not just interested in earning a commission from your business.
