What Our Customers Say ...

We know that customers are at the centre of our business. That is why everything we do, we do for our customers. See why Credit One has become one of the most trusted and preferred brokers in Australia.

My name is Geoff. I went through Credit One, a third choice as other finance companies, in Melbourne I might add, was so disengaged and just couldn't be bothered with the difficult task I needed. So I give Credit One a chance, it started as, oh, I'm not sure about this? but as we progressed it started to become more tangible? Then the lady I was dealing with, Emma, stepped up to the plate, and went way and beyond the line of duty.
My finance was very difficult indeed to achieve, and I knew that! Emma nailed it, and Alan the manager, was extremely helpful as well! I have to say in the end, I can't fault them.
I don't usually give my opinions to anybody in writing, but these individuals deserver praise. They kept me informed of everything that was happening, and WOW, there was a lot that happened! and it took such a long time to complete, and such a big headache it was!
I will give them 10 out of 10, as I was extremely impressed! Great job, your company should be proud to have such dedicated staff!
