Financial Services

Star Financial Solutions, Norman Hall – Director.
My family and I lived in Castle Rock Colorado from December 2001 until December 2006 as part of my wife’s work transfer.

We are now back living in Melbourne and able to assist ex-patriot Australians with their Finance and Banking needs back here in Australia. Just because you are now living in North America should not mean that you are precluded from investing back home. 

I have been in Banking and Finance since 1987. We have 26 Lenders on our panel to provide Home Loans and Investment Property Loans and 17 Lenders who are able to provide Commercial Property Loans. If you want to invest back in Australia, almost anywhere in Australia, we can assist. 

We can provide Property Loans in Australian Dollars or US Dollars. Why take the foreign exchange risk when you are paid in US dollars to borrow in Australian Dollars? I can also fund in a number of other currencies for your colleagues located in other countries, just email and ask. 

We can also assist in helping you source the following:
1.      Investment Property Advisory firm [they find the property for you to invest in]
2.      Conveyancers or Solicitor to help with the purchase
3.      Real Estate agents to help find a property, and look after the rental management or sell an existing property
4.      Building Inspections
5.      Insurance coverage on the property
6.      An accountant to complete and submit Australian tax returns

Our business is fully accredited and insured. I’ve been where you are and know the frustrations of dealing remote with home. If we can help let us know.
