Purchasing a home or investment property is a very exciting time! But be aware of the tricks the banks can play... THE TOP 5 THINGS you need to know: • How much deposit do you have to put in? • Has the bank cross collateralised your loan? • Are they REALLY giving you their best deal? • Should you take a package or a basic loan – which is better for YOU? • Is it a good time to lock in a fixed rate or should you be taking the variable option?

Whether it’s the family home or a rental property, buying real estate at the right time can be one of the best investments you will ever make... as long as your finance is structured properly! At Altitude Finance we assist our clients to arrange their home and investment loans. We work with you to understand your unique situation, search for the right product, present our recommendations and even manage all the paperwork for you.

Meet Chris Ryan

Looking out for others – Good Service Counts

Looking out for others is very much a part of Chris’s life with almost 20 years of volunteering service with the Surf Lifesaving Movement in Queensland at local & state level as well as leadership in junior and senior management positions. Chris is a dedicated lifesaver patrolling his much loved beach at Main Beach as a member of the Southport S.L.S.C.. Chris is also a great communicator; his many years on the sands have given him numerous challenging experiences, and the ability to find the right solution. Real Estate can be as equally challenging, and Chris believes energy & passion are so important to achieve the best possible outcome and a special journey for each of his clients. Chris brings a flare for marketing & design to the team, with a very high work ethic, vision and the desire to succeed he is an asset to have in your corner.

Meet Karl Botha “Precision thinking in pressure situations”

When it comes to keeping focused on a job to be done you can’t go past Karl who thrives on making the right calls when in the thick of the action. Born in South Africa and raised in Australia Karl grew up with a love for the game of rugby, which he has excelled playing in Brisbane’s premier grade division as well as at representative level. Captaining was where Karl felt most at home thriving on the pressure of game day and rallying players around him to put that extra effort in to secure the win. It is in this aspect that Karl strives and relishes working in Real estate on the Gold Coast. It’s about calculated steps and persistence to keep moving forward no matter what the market conditions are, and surrounding yourself with the right team to build that winning formula. Karl has the steel to make you a winner on game day!! 131 Old Pacific Highway, Oxenford QLD 4210 5573 6222 • www.fnox.com.au 16- -www.localfocus.net.au www.localfocus.net.au 14
