Basie Smit

Financial Adviser


As a Financial Adviser, I can live out my passion to help you with your financial life-plan. This will get you to the financial future you dream about. People usually don’t know what they don’t know. I get excited to partner with someone to get from point A to point B with their expectations. It’s a journey, and I love to be part of that. Sometimes the journey might take us on a tangent, and that is fine, as long as we get there in the end. My experience in this industry since 2002 will stand us in good stead.

Greg Kerr

Mortgage Adviser


I love property and this is my dream role, getting the finance approved for clients to buy their first home or investment property. I love working with numbers (a chartered accountant) and am very knowledgeable on property matters (studied law/experienced property investor). It is important to take the time to understand why people want to buy a property, and to create a strategy around their 'why'. Buying a home can be a stressful and time consuming process. By working with me to organise your finance, frees up your time to find that house you want to own.
