New membership, Jim Scott
Hi All, Just thought I would post a note here to introduce myself. I was encouraged to join the site by another member.
I was born in Adelaide (to british parents) but lived in the UK (Basingstoke mainly) for 15 years, where I married my lovely wife Helen and our children Chloe (14) and Oliver (10) were also born there. I worked for Barclays Bank for 8 years and BNP Paribas for 4 yrs, most of this time in the role of a senior lending manager.
We migrated to Adelaide about 6 years ago.
I have spent my entire career in finance and I am a full time, self-employed, professional mortgage broker. I arrange home loans, business loans and vehicle/equipment finance with a wide range of lenders.
I provide free consultations and I am happy to come to you 24/7 (in Adelaide) and discuss your options.
Feel welcome to contact me if you have any questions.

Hi Jim welcome to PIA
I may well be bending your and Andrew's ears in the near future.;) Just gotta get this house sorted then book the flights.
hello and welcome to pia
always handy to have someone who knows 'money' on board!!
even if it's a rocky boat at the moment with this blooming houseselling lowdown here in the uk
but we'll be over soon!!! (wish us luck ;))
Just to let you guys know we've just used Jim to get us a mortgage.
Top bloke who does his job well.
Is a walking encyclopedia about mortgages.
Would deffo recommend him
Say Jim, seeing as Django Pete told me I could have bought a house two years ago when I got here and now I'm fuming about it, have you experience with Homestart finance? If we do decide to finally go for a house of our own we're going to need every cent of that $11,000 they're currently offering to first time buyers. (When we get our perm. visas through.) We could put down a 10% deposit on an average house, but with only one of us working and not earning much, would we even be eligible for a mortgage? All the mortgage calculators I've been through online have said no chance. I am desperate for a place of our own instead of being shuttled around from rental to rental. And what do the 'extra' fees like conveyancing charges and stamp duty usually add up to?
