About Us

Welcome to Finsafe Finance of Ballina.

FinSafe Finance director Paul Barnes has over 30 years of experience in the banking and finance sector with two of Australia's major Banks. Paul's extensive lending history and strong understanding of the banking system, credit policies, and lending products available, enables him to deliver the most suitable lending solution for his clients.

Paul is a Qualified and Accredited Mortgage Consultant. Having specialised in both residential and commercial loan finance, he also has extensive experience in SMSF property lending and business finance. SMSF lending has quickly become a niche product for FinSafe Finance due to the expertise available within his wife’s locally based SMSF accounting firm.

Born and raised in the Northern Rivers, Paul has now successfully established FinSafe Finance in the area. A family history going back many generations in the district gives him a real appreciation of the region and its uniqueness.       

Whether you are purchasing your first home, an investment property, refinancing, or taking out a limited recourse loan within your SMSF, Paul at Finsafe Finance will gladly assist.

He will help navigate you through the competitive and ever-changing mortgage landscape to match you with the right loan. He'll go into bat and negotiate on your behalf, and make the process as simple as possible for you.

Why use us as a mortgage broker when looking for finance?

A mortgage broker is someone who shops around for the home loan that's right for you. Whether you're in the market for your first home or building a portfolio of investment properties, we have access to hundreds of loans from a host of Australia's leading lenders.

We do the hard work for you.

We make sure you get the right home loan for your circumstances and will manage the process from start to finish.

When should you see us and what can you expect?

You can see us at any stage in your financial journey. You might still be saving for your first home, wishing to use the equity in your current one, or wondering if you're still getting the right deal with your existing lender. You can make an obligation-free appointment with us at a time and place that suits you.

We will ask about your financial circumstances and objectives to find out what's important to you in a home loan. For example, flexibility might be important because you plan to start a family or you may want ready access to equity for a rental property or renovations. Whatever your plans, we will research the market and recommend the right home loan to suit your needs. We always look for the right loan for you, not the lender.
