About us

After buying Kiwi Mortgage Market Petone in 2009, Brendon decided to launch The Mortgage and Insurance Shop in April 2014.

Over the last 14 years since becoming a broker/advisor, the services we can provide our clients have increased and changed. What started as providing Home Loans, Advice and a bit of Business and Commercial lending now extends to a Full Financial Service model which now encompasses Home Loans, Business and Commercial Lending, Personal Insurances, Asset and Vehicle Finance. We also offer continued servicing of loans that we arranged for our clients (ie re fixing of interest rates, small top ups etc). We think the business name really defines the business that we are in.

As advisors, we know that ‘one shoe doesn’t fit everyone’. We have access to more than 20 lenders, insurers and financial providers and understand the market and what lending criteria is at any particular point in time, to allow us to find the best bank or insurer to meet your needs.

Our Service for 95% of our clients is FREE, so why wouldn’t you want to deal with us?

We don’t just deal with local people and business, we have clients across the country and indeed the world that we have arranged finance for.

Make the call to The Mortgage and Insurance Shop today, you won’t be disappointed.

Risk Advisor

Insurance is in my blood being the third generation insurance adviser within my family.

A huge passion of mine is meeting people whether it be on a personal level or within business, being in the Insurance industry helping people to protect what matters most to them, has allowed me help people protect their biggest asset, ‘your ability to earn an income’ and the people they love and care about financially from disability is what really motivates me.

Having my own mortgage and more recently a little girl, drills home even more so, that what I do is so important.

Making sure people are educated about how imperative being financially protected is, while providing excellent advice, is instrumental in my day to day dealings with people and of course my own clients.
