Experience, know how and industry contacts

I have worked with David Starkey for the past 8 years and over that time I have purchased six investment properties. I have found David to be extremely knowledgeable in regards to the range of loans available, always being able to provide a variety of options and identifying the pros and cons of each.

I purchased a property in my SMSF prior to this becoming mainstream and David was able to navigate the complex legislative requirements to successfully complete the acquisition with a minimum of fuss.

The lending environment has never been more dynamic than over the past few years and David has been diligent in keeping track of my loan structure and suggesting changes where appropriate.

David applies a balance of common sense together with a solid understanding of my individual asset growth strategy, and this coupled with his astute interpersonal skills makes him a valuable business partner to have on my team.

David Starkey of Symmetry Finance Solutions has been instrumental with helping us secure our mortgages. Multiple mortgages, over multiple properties, over multiple years. We were happy with David’s ability to advise us as to the best product for our needs. Then we were delighted when he suggested a structure we had not thought of, allowing us more flexibility with our budgets to make the transition to home ownership far easier. We recommend David’s services with the highest of compliments. We would not use anyone else and as our repeat business has shown, we will use him again. Thank you David for taking the stress and hassle out of applying for our mortgages.

“I was looking to start a relatively large investment property project and was unsure how to begin to understand my finance options and borrowing capacity. David was recommended as a specialist in investment property financing and in my experience lived up to that recommendation. David has the ability to communicate in an ‘easy to understand’ manner and helped structure our finance to commence the project. Specialist investment property financing knowledge is a non-negotiable when dealing with multiple banks, options and complexity. I thoroughly enjoyed working with David and would not hesitate to recommend him and his knowledge in this specialised area.”

We’ve re-financed our home loans with David three times over the past decade. On each occasion there were a number of challenges due to our circumstances and each time David successfully steered our application through. The most recent re-finance involved switching banks and the minutiae and hurdles that were put in our way would have defeated me. However David pro-actively and patiently managed the process with the bank and regularly kept us informed with the state of play. We’re very happy with the outcome and highly recommend using David and Symmetry Finance. Dr Richard C and Dr Carol M

Thank you for the professional and personalised service given to me by Symmetry. I needed a quick turn around and lots of advice in a short space of time, without your experience and knowledge I would never have reached my goals. Your intimate knowledge of the home loan industry as well as attention to my personal needs was hugely appreciated! Thanks and I would certainly recommend Symmetry. Brett A

I have had the privilege of working with Symmetry Finance and David Starkey. I was first introduced to David 9 years ago, through a business contact when a client of mine was looking for a new finance broker. David quickly proved he was a client/relationship-focused operator.

In fact, he has that sense of business service from the 1950s. Courteous, friendly and when he says he will do something or be somewhere he is spot on! My client had no hesitation using Symmetry’s services and benefited from David’s experience and knowledgeable approach.

His professional conduct and attention to detail is flawless combined with being an utmost trustworthy and ethical operator. Needless to say, during the past 9 years I have referred David to many friends and clients. I know that he has my best interests at heart and I too have utilised his services on many occasions. I would have no hesitations in recommending the services of David Starkey and Symmetry Finance.

We required finance on our investment property in Melbourne. We purchased it in our SMSF. This was quite a complex process with a lot of documentation involved etc. David Starkey greatly assisted us from the beginning to settlement. He has great expertise, is patient and knows what he’s talking about. He also has an excellent eye for detail. We can sincerely highly recommend David for his finance brokerage services. He is very capable and easy to work with.

I highly recommend David from Symmetry Finance for anybody looking at getting a loan or refinancing. The personalised service was amazing and stress free from start to finish. David managed to do wonders getting me the results I was after due to his knowledge and experience in the industry, which I don’t think I would have got through anyone else. I will definitely only be going through Symmetry for any future loans.

David was recommended to me through a friend who has worked with him for many years. David provided an incredible service to me, as a novice in the game, and led me through the complexities of mortgages and home ownership. David’s advice was spot on and he was invaluable in helping me gain knowledge and make the right decisions for my circumstance. I felt like David walked beside me through the process and I would recommend his friendly and expert services to anyone.

“David went out of his way to make sure my loan application was processed as quickly as possible. He provided regular feedback on the progress of my application and found a loan product much better suited to my requirements than that I had found for myself”.

Kristie T

David was able to secure a loan with our existing lender after they had already declined our application, and at a better interest rate than the discounted package we already received. Very professional and good communication.

Kerry and Warren L

Business Owners & Multiple Property Investors

David, thank you so much for all the help in yet again securing me a great home loan. Not only do you always make the process seamless, save me an enormous amount of time but always seem to secure me a rate far better than that I could’ve got myself.

I won’t hesitate in advocating the services of Symmetry Finance to all and sundry, as the service you provide is priceless!

I have known David for over 20 years, first as an employee for several years in our mortgage team and more recently as a client. Needless to say David is very experienced and has a wealth of experience in structuring loans strategically for both tax purposes and efficient management of repayment.

David, as any of his clients can attest, goes about his business in a professional and ethical way. He is honest and trustworthy beyond reproach. I have no hesitation in recommending David to my clients as the best individual to look after their loan requirements.
