Presentation is Everything 

Because we have done the previous step properly, this enables us to present your case to the right lender who matches your profile and criteria, so even if you have been declined or rejected by several other lenders before or told no doesn’t mean we cannot help you. We may take a bit longer before we submit an application, because we like to make sure that we understand our client’s needs in full, which in doing so, gives the client the best possible chance of success possible.  If we do get a decline or a rejection, we look at a solution or find out exactly why, so we can fix the problem and look for a solution.

Some lenders may use 4 or more credit agencies to search you, along with google and Facebook.  It is imperative that we go through your credit report and drill down the fact find, so that any issues we see that may be problematic to a lender, we can look at and find a solution to rectify this and match a lender that properly fits your criteria.
