Time is our most important investment


Sue Tierney Mortgages provides a tailored mortgage broking service for people looking to buy residential homes, investment properties and commercial properties.


Our service starts with understanding your financial situation and future goals. We take the time to learn what matters, and then we put together a home loan package that suits. With decades of experience dealing with lenders, Sue and her team can recommend the best range of options.


Sue’s service is built on four special factors you won’t find at the average mortgage broker.


1. We deal direct with the banks

Most mortgage brokers go through a middleman or head office, as the banks don’t want to deal with the nuts and bolts of every application. But Sue Tierney Mortgages holds direct agreements with all the major banks in New Zealand, due to the volume of business we handle and our reputation for professionalism. We’ll approach the best lender for your requirements and get an answer in the shortest possible time.


2. Face-to-face service is vital

Whether you’re a busy CEO or a first time buyer from South Auckland, we’ll take the time to meet with you and gain a real understanding of what matters. The phone and email are useful tools, but we believe a face-to-face meeting is the best way to discover all the relevant facts. Of course, if you live in Sydney or Shanghai, you may not be able to meet so easily, but we’ll still go the extra mile to find out what makes you tick.


3. 100% independent

Sue Tierney Mortgages is independent from any real estate chain or financial institution. We don’t rely on business sent our way via a ‘friendly’ agent or two. Remember that real estate agents work for the vendor, not the buyer. Staying independent means we’re under no pressure to facilitate a deal if it’s not in the best interests of our client.


4. We know property inside out

Sue started saving for her first property when she was a teenager and has since become a successful property investor, with flats, holiday homes and houses throughout New Zealand. She knows what it’s like to mow the lawns of a rental on Saturday and hang wallpaper to attract new tenants. Property ownership has been a fascinating journey, and it’s taught us many things. Getting the right financial arrangements is only the beginning.
