“Colin, thank you for your assistance during the purchase of our second home. It was really daunting to begin with but you were able to deal with all our concerns and gave us peace of mind. You were spot on with your calculations and thank you for the many hours clarifying it all so we could make informed decisions. We recommend your services to anyone who values reliability and honesty. Thanks again”.
Elsa Smith, Landsdale
“We recently purchased our first investment property and found Colin through a recommendation on an online investment forum we use. We found Colin to be reliable, always deliver on his promises and very knowledgeable. I asked plenty of ‘stupid’ questions and always received prompt, detailed responses from Colin who explained everything to us throughout the process of re-arranging our current and securing our second mortgage. I felt Colin was genuinely interested and concerned for our success and I did not feel like ‘just another client’. I would highly recommend Colin’s services.”

Roz Dawson, Bullsbrook
“After years of being scared to step into property investing we began working with Colin to understand our position and options to build our wealth from property. Colin has been an amazing wealth of knowledge and has guided us through the process of purchasing our first investment property.
He was able to get us better options with our own bank and explains everything in a way we were able to understand. His expertise and experience plus his helpful nature gave us the support we needed. He was also able to provide solutions to related problems from his network of experts.
If you want to invest, or want to get better deals on what you have right now, Colin is the mortgage broker to work with. I highly recommend Financial Momentum for all your property investment and mortgage needs”.
Jo Saunders, Dianella
“Colin firstly I would like to thank you for everything you have done over the past month. I was most impressed at how you explained things in “simple” terms with your spread sheets. You are professional, honest, efficient and true to your word. Although our situation did not allow us to refinance you did not hesitate to negotiate a MUCH better deal with our current bank. You have saved us over $6,000 a year which will help us so much. Once again, thanks so much for everything and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs any financial assistance. Actually, I have provided your name to 3 work colleagues already”.
Telena Thornton, Carlisle

Dean Letard, Banksia Grove
“Colin was recommended to us by a work colleague who had previous dealings with him. We found Colin went the extra mile to ensure that we were totally satisfied with the outcome of our business. I have since then recommended him to some of our friends and would not hesitate to work with him again in the future”
Brian Cassidy, Clarkson

“Colin Rice is one of a kind. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and, perhaps above all, committed to the best outcomes for his clients. Rarely does one find someone who’s willing to go the extra mile, but in my experience Colin is one such person. I cannot recommend him highly enough to you”
Darrel Griffin, Ellenbrook

Veronica Kilrain, Beelair
“Aspiring to buy property in the wake of the real estate boom in Perth is daunting. I didn’t expect to be able to buy property at all. I figured there was no harm in having a chat to Colin and finding out his take on my situation. We met informally with coffee and he fielded my questions. My perspective of property investment shifted from being dug in for the long haul paying off a family home; to taking a step using equity, rental income and tax breaks to climb the ladder. In that meeting Colin pre-approved me for an average loan, which I would later secure. I ditched the impossible fiction and embarked on an investment strategy; settling for a first time property which I could afford and was happy with.
Not only was my newly renovated 4×1 my first step towards building an invested future, it upgraded my lifestyle, giving me independence and financial stability. I was tickled pink that interest cost less than rent, and the current economy is still substantiating record low rates. I could afford to live on my own and stop sharing fridge space. Best of all however is the ability to keep saving pennies in an offset account for my next investment, and a dollar saved is a dollar I don’t pay interest on, so it’s a great incentive.
One reservation that I had was how could I trust a mortgage broker who will make a commission if he signs me up for a loan? For that reason I didn’t approach a bank employed financial adviser. Colin Rice is a mortgage broker for Financial Momentum, they are independent and facilitate loans from any bank, so you can compare all the loans available and pick the best one. He does earn a commission, but it doesn’t come from my repayments, the bank who issues the loan pays his commission, since he has generated income for them by signing me up.
So from the customer’s point of view you get an industry savvy broker to find you the best deal and guide you through the convoluted application process, and it won’t cost you a cent, because he’s paid out of bank profits, not your pocket. I understand people say “but you’re paying for bank profit”, and that’s true, but no more than if I’d secured the loan myself, in fact probably less because Colin ensures the lowest rates and fees etc. It’s all above board and completely transparent.
I’d recommend Colin to anyone in a heartbeat. Buying property with finance is a stressful and complicated legal process. If you’re looking to buy property, whether it’s you’re first home or an investment property, save yourself a lot of hassle and get Colin to advise you. From my experience Colin already knows which bank loans are the best before you walk in the door. Colin will be able tell you the best interest rate going, and in some cases can pre-approve you after one meeting. With so many hoops to jump through, each with its own deadline, just one set back could disrupt the whole process and you don’t want your offer to fall over. Secure that property ASAP by letting a broker like Colin do the hard work for you. Thanks for the Invaluable free service and advice”.
Chris White, Cooloongup
“In 2013 we were advised that our rental property was going to be put up for sale. After years of renting on having to move when the owners tired of their investment properties my partner and I decided it was time to invest in our own future and purchase a home.
In order to purchase our home, and not being eligible for the first home buyers grant, we needed to obtain finance to make our dream a reality. Our biggest concerns were that we had been renting and paying out such large sums every week for our rental properties, that we had no real evidence of proof of savings other than a modest sum in one of our bank accounts. We were gifted some money from the family but we just didn’t know how to pull everything together enough to present it to a bank.
My sister had dealt with Colin in the past and he came highly recommended by her to talk us through the process involved and approach lenders on our behalf. We had looked at banks, however the lending jargon became very confusing very quickly so we decided to go ahead and follow her suggestion.
We were well aware that sometimes there are irreputable brokers out there and this concerned us greatly and had held us back from approaching a broker previously as we wanted the best loan for us, not just the loan that gave them the highest commission rate. As my sister has spent a long time investing in properties her recommendation of Colin was all we needed to proceed with his services.
Since we signed on with Colin we have managed to purchase our own home at a rate that works for us, he talked us through the whole process and laid things out in simple terms for us to understand. He has been very helpful throughout the application process and his follow up was amazing. During the application process we also suffered the loss of my father, Colin was very supportive, and understanding of our situation, taking the pressure off us and only contacting us when absolutely necessary which was greatly appreciated during a difficult time.
If someone we knew was considering using Colin’s services I would encourage them to go ahead and give him a call. Colin is a highly approachable person with a gift for listening to what you need and matching you to the right service for you. I cannot recommend Colin Highly enough, nor can I thank him enough for the assistance he gave us”.
