ABOUT Jodi Hackford – Connect Mortgages

Mortgage Broker


A home or investment is a significant commitment for most people. Whether as a first home owner or a seasoned investor, taking out a mortgage of any kind is a serious undertaking that should be given a great deal of consideration before making this decision.

At Connect Mortgages we believe in providing professional, sophisticated mortgage solutions for our clients – taking into account individual circumstances and financial goals before comparing and presenting a range of possible options.

A mortgage broker works for you, rather than for the bank. We understand and provide options from many different lenders, meaning we can help you compare all your options and make an informed decision that will pay dividends in the long-term.

Working with a mortgage broker can save you money and help you pay off your loan faster. We don’t charge any fees for our services and are committed to an ongoing relationship with you for the lifetime of your loan, managing any changes to your loan on your behalf as your needs and circumstances change.

We were recommended the services of Jodi by a mutual business partner and even though we had been approved for our home loan and were about to sign the papers we decided to call Jodi and see what she could do for us – we are more than happy that we did. It took a bit longer to finalise as we had to start the application process all over again and our agent and vendor were concerned (we had told them we were approved and ready to sign – so this delay sounded alarm bells for them).

I was stressed (because the agent was hassling me)

The vendor was anxious (because they had bridging finance on another property)

The agent was annoying (because she called me ALL the time)

Jodi was amazing (because she handled all of the above)

I think I called Jodi almost every day to get an update and each time she was calm and collected, she communicated exceptionally well and handled my questions with professionalism and stealth.

The loan that Jodi secured for us was exactly that – FOR US. We got a loan that works in our favour and not the banks, we got brilliant rates and we got our new home – We also have a broker for life.

I would highly recommend the services of Connect Mortgages and Jodi Hackford.
Thank you Jodi
