What clients say

We were recommended Steven by a local real estate agent & from the moment we made contact we were put at ease by his caring professional manner. Steven listened to our story without any judgment and gave good sound knowledgeable direction, keeping us informed on progress throughout our application. Within a very short while, thankfully to Steven’s awesome communication skills & sold relationships with lenders, we were offered a refinance deal to suit our needs. We highly recommend Steven for supporting us through this process & taking the stress away, when other brokers popped us back into the too hard basket!! We look forward to working with Steven again in the future.

Tracy & Jon

Steve truly went above and beyond to assist us in securing our loans. His approachable demeanor and honesty made the entire process seamless. Not only did he work diligently, but he also worked quickly, ensuring that our needs were met promptly. When we encountered difficulties with the bank, Steve didn't just stand by; he fought tirelessly on our behalf. His determination and advocacy were pivotal in navigating these challenges, and I sincerely believe that without his involvement, we wouldn't have achieved success. Steve's dedication to his clients goes beyond the ordinary, making him an invaluable asset to anyone navigating the mortgage process. We are grateful for Steve's expertise and dedication, and we highly recommend him to anyone in need of mortgage services.


Thank you so much for all your help with getting me a loan, it truly would not have been possible without you. Your advice and guidance helped me achieve my dream of owning my own home. Once again thank you.


Thanks so much Steve! Would highly recommend getting in touch with Steve, he definitely goes the extra mile and helps every step of the way. His service was amazing, helpful, and informative and I really appreciated the effort he put into helping me secure my lending.

As real estate agents who also have a property portfolio of investment properties, we have had many dealings with banks and mortgage brokers over many years. Our most recent dealings with Steve Potter from Vega Finance have prompted us to write this testimonial. After searching for a holiday home in the far north for over 10 years, we came across one that suited all of our needs. Upon enquiring to the agent, we soon discovered that we would be competing against other buyers. This made our finance requirement a matter of urgency. Having been introduced to Steve through our work at Bayleys we decided to engage home to help us. We cannot speak highly enough of the service that we experienced with Steve. Communication was outstanding every day, and he worked with the urgency that we were hoping for. He was clear in requesting the information he needed from us and tenacious in pushing the deal through. As an agent, we have also had Steve get finance approved for some of our buyers, when their own banks made it seem impossible. We cannot rate highly enough his skills, ability and performance to get this work done in a timely manner with a stress free approach. Of all the experiences we have had, the service and result we got with Steve was by far the best and we are now making a habit of recommending him to all of our clients – because we are confident that if anyone can get it done, Steve Potter can.

Olivia and Brent

Steve is a fantastic mortgage broker, very professional and knowledgeable. He was very thorough in explaining everything to us so we were well aware. This was our first home purchase, so we were very nervous and unsure of the process. Thanks Steve for your great help and making this as easy and seamless as it was
