Victor and his team have been helping my wife and I for around 7 years.

The service continued throughout the years with Victor always approachable, friendly and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. An example of this is Victor meeting us at the airport at around 9pm at night so we could get all the documents signed to allow us to settle a property ASAP. The great thing about Victor and his team is that you don't just become a number and fade into the background after a few years. Victor always returns phone calls and has your information to hand when talking to his clients.

Victor was very helpful from the day we contacted him just to get general information about buying a house. He is very knowledgeable and was always very patient answering all our questions. Victor and his amazing team provided support along the way and after we purchased our house. I would definitely recommend Blackk Finance to all my friends and family!!

My wife and I were looking for a broker after seeing the house we thought it was perfect for us. The right size, price and even street! So we found Blackk Finance when researching online and went to meet Victor. See, we were not just first home buyers but we also had no idea about how mortgages work. To top that, I’ve just started working as self-employed photographer and financial institutions don’t exactly love that.After reviewing our situation, Victor said we could try it but it would be complicated so we went ahead and made an offer for the property. A few days later our solicitor (who’s amazing and was Victor’s recommendation) had contracts signed and everything was ready and perfect for us to apply for the loan. Victor has lots of contacts and sadly when it was time for us to apply, a little situation started in Australia and the banks got spooked. So there we were, contract signed, first deposit paid, building inspections done and so on, and the banks saying no before we could even apply for a loan - and Victor trying every single magic spell mankind has ever heard of (and some probably only he knows).Day in, day out, Victor tried EVERYTHING. In the end, there was a chance and we decided to go for it, only to see it declined by the banks. While my wife and I were frustrated and sad, Victor has never for a second given up. And for that we are forever thankful. Mind you, this was all happening in the lead up to Christmas and New Years.And this was the 5 star review we were writing even though we didn’t succeed - which was entirely our fault - to Victor Kalinowski, first of his name, wizard of Oz finance and brave restless knight.Anyone could have given up on us and it would be completely understandable. We were a very difficult case and it was a lot of work to even try getting us a loan. Most brokers would probably say “sorry, can’t help, come back in a year when you do this, this and that”, but not him. Instead he was honest and open about our chances and the work it could take, to get everything ready and still receive a no for an answer. And that’s exactly what happened: after trying everything, we accepted the fact we were not buying this house, this time.But then something changed in our situation, a little thing, and I called Victor to tell him. With the same excitement he said that would change everything and we should try. At this stage, time was really against us. For a whole week Victor worked hard to get things done in time.And here we are now, packing our stuff to get ready to move in to our new home.Victor, we cannot thank you enough, I couldn’t just write a review saying “yes he’s the best broker in town” because without explaining what we all went through together, it would be hard to make people understand how much you care and work hard. We know you could have spent your time working with easier clients and yet you haven’t stopped for a second.Thank you thank you thank you,(and Debbie)Bruno and Roberta (and Helga)

My partner and I had been recommended by friends to contact Victor at Blackk Finance for the purchase of our first home. From the initial meet and greet late one evening to the actual purchase / finance of our property the positive experience continued.Victor was more than happy to talk us through all aspects and options available to us, this included understanding our personal circumstances and always maintaining options that would have our best interests first.The process was simple, convenient and we could not meet someone more willing to help and answer questions, giving confidence at every step along the way.We could not recommend Victor and the team enough and without questions would use them again for any future finance requirements.Thank you again for all your assistance and support!Brent & Shoko

I would give Blackk Finance 10 stars if I could. Victor & Debbie were simply amazing!! I personally found purchasing our first home a bit scary but Victor coached us through the whole process and always managed to reassure me. He never seemed annoyed at my endless questions & was very well prepared for everything we threw at him.Thank you for not giving up on us. I know it took us a while but now thanks to you we will be enjoying Christmas poolside in our new home!! We will definitely recommend your services to all our friends and will be back the next time we’re in the market for a new home. 🙂

Victor is extremely approachable, friendly and professional. He instills a confidence in you that he is genuinely making suggestions based solely on your best interests.We felt very looked after by Victor and truly wondered why anyone would even bother looking for finance on their own.Even when freak complications arose, Victor worked very hard to both rectify the situation and continually communicate with us about it.I would wholeheartedly recommend that anybody looking for a home loan speak with Victor immediately.

We engaged Victor after a recommendation from a friend and were not disappointed! Victor sat with us and helped work out the best situation for us very early on including getting pre-approval. Through the buying process he helped with property reports as we were looking at various properties to ensure we made the best buy possible. Being a business owner, finance is always more complex however Victor found us a bank that can work with us on this, and he had the loan approved, done and dusted in record time as this was important to secure the property and go unconditional. He also helped us with further valuations and refinancing for further work to the property which has been fantastic. The team at Blackk Finance has gone above and beyond to guide us to the best outcome we could hope for! Thank you Victor and the Blackk Finance team!!!

Our situation was a little more difficult than most, we had a combination of it being our first property purchase, self employed and that we were buying the property we were currently renting so there was no sales agent involved to help with certain details. Victor and his team were absolutely brilliant. From the first conversation to the conclusion they made the process extremely easy to understand, follow and be informed. I had previously spoken to a number of brokers before Blackk Finance, at that time we only had a small deposit, other brokers were keen to do the deal and encouraged us to take big risks to make it happen at that time without being clear of the consequences. My first chat with Victor was simple . "Save more " So we did, got back in touch with him down the track and he exceeded our expectations with a higher deposit loan and thus lower interest. If other brokers are soldiers, Victor is a Navy SEAL . His communication is always clear, precise and professional. He knows his profession extremely well and he will make sure that you get a good deal and that you are making solid financial decision. Special thanks to Debbie as well for her efforts, extremely helpfull.

This was our fourth time buying a home but our first time using a financial advisor. We did not expect the process to be easy as we are used to doing things a certain way and we had a billion questions. We were so wrong. Victor validated and answered every single one of those billion questions and gave us confidence that what we wanted to achieve with purchasing our first investment property could be achieved... Then he made it happen. He and his team personalised every meeting we had with him and then went to work finding a finance package that suited us PERFECTLY. Thanks Blackk finance. Who knew buying a home would be so enjoyable and easily thanks to you. We are so very grateful for the time and personal attention you took to making this so enjoyable and perfect for our needs.

We are first timers and had no idea where to start. Victor went above and beyond for us, staying in contact, following up on everything and stuck it out with us for a few years before we had enough to finally start the process.Victor & Blackk finance are great guys and we won't hesitate in contacting them again in the future.We appreciate everything you's have done for us!

After a couple of very successful earlier dealings with Blackk Finance we had no hesitation in contacting Victor again when we recently decided to upgrade our family vehicle. The brief was challenging....all communicaton was via phone or email as we reside in a remote area, the vehicle we settled on was in Brisbane and our local bank had been unable to help us. As with our previous experiences Victor proved himself yet again, making the whole experience a very positive one. Great communication, nothing was too much trouble and his down to earth friendly approach made a potentially stressful situation very pleasant. He negotiated a great deal for us and we have driven away in our dream vehicle. Thanks again Victor for making this happen for us!! We will definitely be back! Martin & Therese 🙂

Victor was brilliant from the get go! Meeting us on a Friday afternoon when many would have knocked off, he sat down and took us through the steps for securing our first property. He took into account everything we needed and provided us with a great loan. He did everything promptly and kept us update to date throughout the entire process even when we were overseas. We would definitely use Blackk Finance and Victor again and would recommend to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.

We know that we can always depend on your knowledge & expertise in financial matters to advice us in future too. Thanks a ton. Great work.

I could not be happier. I can confidently recommend him. Victor has communicated every step of the way he always answered any of our questions quickly and thoroughly. He has been on top of everything and is very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank you so much Victor.

During my first discussion with Victor I knew that he was the broker for us. He is clearly very passionate about property investing and smart financial structuring. Victor and the Blackk team are also incredibly authentic in their desire to not only assist my husband and I purchase our first investment property but to consider future investment goals. Victor is giving of his time and met us where we were at whilst generously imparting his knowledge and expertise I have to also give a special mention to the ever professional and gracious Jacquie. She made herself so available to us, explaining things, replying to emails and texts in record speed and sending reassuring texts at the eleventh hour. Not to mention, doing paperwork in the carpark when my child was sick in car. I highly recommend Victor and Jacquie and will definitely be seeing them again in the near future with the next buy!

Victor was clear with everything required of my partner and I as we went down the road of buying our first home and I could not recommend any better! When we would visit his office after work, there was cold drinks waiting and he never failed to make my kids feel as though they were involved in the process as we sat for a couple of hours going through the paperwork it never felt like a chore!THANKS AGAIN VICTOR AND THE TEAM AT BLACKK FINANCE!

I cannot speak highly enough of Blackk Finance. Victor really listened to us and got us a great deal on the package best suited to us, when refinancing our home loan. Even when we went away and more or less forgot about it, Victor was on the ball and always keeping the line of communication open. No question was too hard/annoying for him. I could go on, but you get my drift. Love your work, Victor!

Not only did he find a more suitable bank and structure, but also a great interest rate. Nothing was ever too hard. No question was left unanswered. He took the time to explain everything and made sure we understood every detail. Victor is very friendly, understanding and approachable. Even when contacted out of business hours, he made himself available for us. I commend you on your patience, understanding and knowledge. We HIGHLY recommend you guys at Blackk Finance! Thank you again for all that you have done for us. * We love the colourful technique you use to explain*

Blackk – Experienced Mortgage Brokers in Brisbane

Frequently Asked Questions

It usually costs you nothing to use Blackk to get your loan approved and settled. This is because we are paid by the lender with whom you have your home loan with after your loan has settled (i.e. when you pick up the keys).

There are some exceptions to this which we will discuss with you if it is relevant. These broadly include the following, if (i) your situation is really complex involving significantly more time, or (ii) you refinance your loan away from Blackk within 18 months of your loan settling, to another bank or mortgage broker.

The amount you can borrow depends on a number of factors, including your income, expenses, credit score and the type of property and location you are purchasing. To get an accurate estimate, it is best to get in touch with us.

The best place to start is with a phone call with Victor, our mortgage broker.  You can book online a time that suits you, or call the office and we can arrange a time. This is an opportunity for you to ask any burning questions you may have and get a feel for if you think we are the right fit for you.

Once you have spoken with us, the next step is to complete an online fact find, where you provide all your personal and financial information for us to review and also upload your supporting paperwork like bank statements. Once we have reviewed these, we will recommend suitable home loans.  For more detailed steps, go to ‘Services’ on the menu bar and choose what type of home loan you are after.

This can take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days, depending on how complex your loan is and how busy the banks are. We follow up with your lender regularly on your behalf to push your application along as quickly as possible and keep you updated.

The main reasons for using mortgage brokers:

  1. Have access to hundreds of different loans from up to 40 different lenders and banks– This includes the main ones like CBA, ANZ as well as smaller ones you may not have heard of who often have good deals;
  2. Provide expert home loan advice which gets you ahead financially – From which lender is the best fit for you, through to setting your loan up. Good brokers will also have plenty of experience dealing with real estate agents and builders so can advise on this through your journey. If you have spoken to us and a bank directly about a home loan, you will have noticed we provide you with a heap of good advice that you will never receive from a bank!
  3. Saves you time – It’s no secret you’ll need to provide lots of paperwork to get a home loan and a good Mortgage Broker does a lot of this handling on your behalf.

If you’re concerned about your credit history or your credit file we recommend you get a copy of your credit file before applying for a loan to check and see if there are any ‘marks’ against your name.  There can be a number of reasons why this might be the case: from not paying your mobile phone bill on time, missing a credit card or loan repayment or worse.  Your credit file can be accessed through mycreditfile.com.au.  If you do have a bad credit history, there are some things you can do to fix it but this is normally determined on a case by case basis.

Mortgage Brokers are paid by your lender once your loan has settled (ie when you pick up the keys). The payment is not out of your pocket.

Mortgage Brokers typically get paid in two ways:

  • Upfront commission when your home loan settles; and
  • Trail commission for every year you hold your loan with them.

We act with the highest levels of integrity with our advice on how much you can borrow. We never:

  • Allow clients to take on a home loan that was too big for them to handle (based on the information they provide us);
  • Encourage a client to take on a bigger home loan so we get higher commissions;
  • Choose a bank for a client so we get higher commissions.

We want  you to know that almost all our business comes from clients referring their family and friends as they are highly satisfied with their experience with us – meaning our clients feel we are acting only in their best interests.

Please note, if your situation is really complex, such as a self-managed super fund or you have multiple loans and properties in the one transaction, a fee may apply. It’s best to confirm this upfront before you get started.

Mortgage brokers are now a crucial part of the residential home loan industry. Mortgage brokers do the following:

  • Keep home loan interest rates and fees down – mortgage brokers negotiate with several banks on your behalf to get the best interest rate for their clients. Without mortgage brokers, expect loan interest rates to rise;
  • Allow over 40 different banks and lenders to compete for your loan – most people go into bank branches to ask about home loans. Only the top 6 to 8 or so banks in Australia have a branch network. For the remaining banks and lenders (Macquarie Bank, ING, BankWest etc) they get most or all of their business through mortgage brokers. Without mortgage brokers, the big 6 to 8 banks will dominate. This means banks will raise their interest rates and fees as there is less competition;
  • Provide extra advice on getting ready for and applying for a home loan – a bank branch is very unlikely (I’d prefer to say ‘will never’) give you the level of quality advice in preparing for and getting your home loan application approved.  Mortgage brokers (good ones) will spend this time with you.

The 2019 Banking Royal Commission report has recommended making customers pay a fee to use mortgage brokering services.  This will mean many mortgage brokers will leave the industry.  The likely outcome is higher fees and interest rates for borrowers as the big 6 banks dominate.
