My husband and I wanted to purchase a reasonably expensive home/farm property and it appeared that we needed to sell a few houses to do this. We embarked on the exercise of making enquiries at our bank, other potential banks and trying to figure out our options.
As it was a farm property, banks view them differently and were either unwilling to lend or wanted to lend at a commercial rate. There was also the small but rather expensive issue of breaking mortgages and the penalty fees. It was getting complex. I was out of my depth and the frustration was building.
Enter Elise Vine….
Elise was a blessing – she not only removed the confusion/frustration for me, but she changed the complexity into manageable bites and then got us an even better rate than we could, with acceptable minimal fees.
My husband was a little sceptical at first having always managed these transactions himself, but we both now agree that the service provided by Elise was exceptional. She was professional at all times, kept in regular contact and gave us the confidence that she was really working hard to get us the best deal she could.
We have both been recommending Elise to anyone we know who needs financial advice or assistance with mortgages. She offers friendly, down to earth, practical advice and can be relied on to deliver!!
Elise took the time to understand and appreciate our story presenting us with options in the shape of meaningful realistic goals. She then provided support and guidance in the process of achieving those goals. Her support is on call and ongoing.
Her knowledge and understanding of all areas of finance and property management are exceptional and accompanied with her honest, ethical and humanistic approach she provides a unique service by ensuring finance is achievable whilst maintaining a healthy and sustainable life balance.
In securing the finance and the property Elise with her wide and deep local knowledge put us in contact with a team of professionals including lawyer, builder, accountant, and property manager.
Overseeing all decisions with a view of the bigger picture which she has a clear understanding of as part of the process of working with Elise is that she gets to know you and allows you to share your life narrative and its setting. This allowing her to provide us with choices that are informed and practical in achieving our goals.
While we started off with our vision being securing a dream home in Lyttleton for our retirement it has grown thanks to Elise’s influence to include one of many possible properties that we may acquire.
Anything is now possible.
Our relationship is continuous and more than merely professional evolving into a close and important friendship.
Give her a go. You won’t regret it
