Who We Are

QuickSelect is a pioneering Australian financial services company established in October 2009. We are dedicated to always providing the best choice to consumers across the financial service category, primarily focusing on residential home lending solutions.

We saw the need for an innovative online home loan service, catering for people with busy lifestyles and those seeking help from a service that was efficient, convenient and focused on delivering outstanding customer service. Sure, it was easy to find lots of sites with long lists of products, but when it came to comparing them there was one problem - there was never anyone available to answer the enviable questions that were needed to be answered. We were always left with some doubts and the only way to solve them seemed to be to talk to the various providers - which kind of brought us back to where we started - running around talking to everyone. But rather than accept that the internet killed the customer service star (and perhaps write a song) we decided to solve the problem. And solve it we did.

QuickSelect is a new kind of financial business – Fresh and dynamic, provocative and questioning. We know how to get the best out of the lending institutions and how the system works. We know it is not rigid, but pliable and flexible, that can be stretched and steered for better outcomes. We embrace the use of technology only to improve efficiency and ensure your experience is simpler and easier for you. We are staffed by people who put you first and believe nothing beats a conversation at every required opportunity. Our Mortgage brokers have expert knowledge and will provide you with guidance for your entire journey.
