After a lifetime of moving from location to location due to military postings, we finally settled into our forever home here in Canberra with our boys in 2007. Having since retired as senior Army Officer, and with our two boys now starting their own families, we have both been keen to help them establish their own homes.
Young people trying to establish their own families into their own properties remain challenged despite current low interest rates. The disaster that was 2020 hit our family particularly hard as work dried up almost entirely for both our boys. We were therefore very grateful when a veteran friend in the real estate business recommended we speak to Sharryn Huggett about drawing on equity in our current home to assist our kids into their own properties. We own our own place, but we were breaking new ground by exploring options to build a second residence alongside our family home whilst also helping our second son and his partner to build their own home deposit. Quite the challenge and a lot of minefields to avoid...
Despite having to conduct all our business via email, phone and video due to Covid-19 social distancing, Sharryn patiently led us step-by-step over time through a range of issues and options that resulted in a great financing outcome. Once the finance application was filed, she followed up regularly with the chosen bank and ensured that the process went smoothly and efficiently all the way. Settlement of funds into our bank was surprising fast once the process was initiated.
The new build starts soon, and 2021 is looking very bright all round. In conclusion and with the highest of recommendations, we couldn’t be happier with Sharryn’s fantastic support.
