What our customers say about us

Callum was a pleasure to work with throughout the purchase of my first home, not only did he do all the research to ensure I was getting the best deal, his consistent follow up and attention to detail ensured a smooth and hassle-free experience and is a testimony to his character and commitment to his clients. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking to obtain finance for buying their home or investment.

I would just like to thank Westlawn for always sharing Westlawn Race Day with your clients. I do not know of any other organisation that gives back to their community so generously. We always go and have a wonderful day. It is always fun to also catch up with old friends who we do not see during the year. Keep up the great work! Thank you.

The Grafton District Services Club recently funded a major renovation of our Club premises through Westlawn Finance, Grafton. Their professional approach and ease of operation allowed for a smooth transfer of funds with a minimum of fuss. Westlawn could teach the big banks a lesson in communication with prospective customers and current customers.

Arthur F. LysaughtGeneral Manager – Grafton District Services Club Limited

Thank you for all you help in financing the new work ute. You were very friendly, whilst professional and made the matter stress free. I thought it was worth mentioning as it seems it is hard to get good service sometimes. So thank you!

Clinton and Jodie Green Bananacoast Waterproofing

I was in a bit of bother, the banks would not help me, and I was looking at losing everything. Westlawn Finance gave me a 12 month chance to get things sorted, which I did. Will be always grateful for their help in a difficult situation. Merry Xmas to all the staff especially Coffs Harbour.

Liz is always willing to take phone calls with any queries I may have and responds to me as soon as possible. She will ensure she has all the facts prior to giving any recommendation to ensure the best possible advice is given for my specific situation. I trust in her ability to take care of my current and future needs and have absolutely no issue with recommending her to anyone who is seeking the advice of a financial planner.

Nancy CClient of Liz Maroney, Westlawn Wealth Management

I am truly thankful to you and the board at Westlawn for your patience and understanding over the last few years.  I don’t think anyone will ever know how stressful things have been. I am on the way back to where I once was and your support will never be forgotten. I hope that we can do business again in the not to distant future.

I would like to pass on to you my appreciation for Mike Fayle of your Coffs Harbour branch. The level of professionalism and attention to detail displayed by Mike when processing my application for a personal loan was nothing less than outstanding. He is an absolute credit to your organisation, and in my opinion, indispensable. Please pass on my thanks and gratitude to Mike.
