Thank you Gayle for arranging our finance for the purchase of our property in Vanuatu.

When you live in Australia, it is a very daunting task and if it was not for you I do not believe it would have been possible. Your professionalism, attention to detail, call back and overall handling of our application was second to none.

It is so pleasing to deal with a very skilled professional who takes their job to the highest level. We cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond what was required of you in your brief from us.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anybody requiring the complete package.

Gayle helped us find the perfect loan for our needs. Having lived in Vanuatu for many years and deciding to relocate back to Australia and purchase a home, we found we were not the type of family that ticked all the boxes for Australian lenders.

Gayle’s experience (from many years as a top tier banking executive) and her excellent knowledge of lenders requirements were critical in enabling us to not only get a loan but to get the most competitive one, as well.

Gayle provides a service unlike any other. Her extensive banking and corporate knowledge means receiving advice about so much more than just the right loan for your needs.

A couple of years ago we thought about having a change of lifestyle and pace of life. We wanted to keep up our jobs but needed to find somewhere that would fulfil both our requirements.

We had been to Vanuatu a few times for holidays and had made some good expat friends over there. We did a lot of research over a few years and toyed with the idea of moving to another country for work. Our jobs were taken care of but it was a huge decision and one that would obviously take us out of our comfort zone.

We researched our options on whether to rent or buy a house. We discovered that rent in Vanuatu was very expensive and it was cheaper to buy a moderate house (as the repayments were going to be less than rent). How were we going to organise that? And, where to start??

We were very fortunate once we made the decision to be introduced to Gayle Stapleton from Stapleton Finance. Gayle was fantastic in organising our finance to purchase our house in Vanuatu and refinance our house in Australia.

We didn’t want to sell our house in Australia as we will one day move back there. Plus, we didn’t want to have to buy back into the Australian market. Gayle made the transition so easy and kept us informed every step-of-the-way.

We selected Gayle because of her detailed knowledge and experience with how banks perceive funding opportunities and associated risk. With Gayle’s up- to date market knowledge we were able to identify the most appropriate bank for our needs.

Because the project information was private and confidential we were happy to be able to target a specific source of funding (without the need to put it to multiple lenders).

Gayle was able to present our funding requirements to the bank in a professional manner. This clearly identified our project’s scope and that it presented something worthwhile (from a lender’s point of view). With Gayle’s assistance, we were able to identify and address any of the bank’s perceived risk issues and ensure appropriate and adequate security was provided.

The funding application prepared by Gayle was personalised for the project and ourselves as the borrower. It was in a clear and concise format. Evidently, due to the high quality of the loan application, it was approved within a short time frame. The terms and conditions were what we had expected.

A year on, thanks to the strong relationship developed with Gayle and the bank we have now negotiated a considerable increase to our facility to fund stage two of the project.

If you are self-employed or a professional looking to restructure your finances, I can't recommend Gayle highly enough. She helped me and my business simplify our finances and saved us a ton of money in the process.

Gayle made it very easy to transition to the new structure, working closely with our accountant and completing the mountain of paperwork required so that I didn’t have to. It was a pretty painless process and Stapleton Finance was helpful and professional throughout.

Undertaking a purchase of a business in a foreign country might have been a daunting process, if it wasn’t for the professional and hands-on business experience we benefited from in dealing with Gayle.

Gayle’s understanding of the financial institutions in both Australia and Vanuatu provided me with a transaction which was completed on time, and in a worry-free fashion. Her network of contacts in both countries was a further bonus, in providing me with introductions to both the accounting and legal fraternities.

It is refreshing to deal with a person who maintains professional conduct as a cornerstone of their business, and will go to all lengths to assure their client is fully represented.

Gayle provided faultless service, fulfilling our requirements promptly and efficiently beyond all expectations. If only every business provided service of this quality!

- Gretchen Hitchins and Robert Hitchins

Gayle was more than helpful throughout the whole processes and was always available when I had questions. She relieved any stress or doubt I had. and I have already recommended her to others and will continue to do so.

- Sherri-Rose Ripper

Gayle provided exceptional service. My financial circumstances were unusual(to say the least); given that I live in a country without street addresses, a fledgling taxation system, and use a foreign bank for my business. In fact, pretty much everything I do is outside the box!

Gayle made it all fit perfectly and facilitated a quick and easy financing deal – based on a range of possible products. She explained it all in a way that even I could understand. It was a seamless process and I was very happy with the service.

- Hector Hill

Gayle was very understanding of me and helped me ‘over and above’. Especially in terms of any expectations I may have had with getting a loan at an older age. She was there every step of the way and if I asked for help – well, she gave it to me.

I highly recommend Gayle to anyone needing a loan because she knows what to look for and how to help you. I will use Stapleton Finance should be another time in my future where I need another loan.


Gayle is professional, polite, trustworthy and reliable and also has plenty of experience. She is an excellent mortgage broker.


I couldn’t recommend Gayle’s expertise enough in helping myself and my partner purchase a property abroad. She spent the time to go over all of our questions and make sure we were comfortable with all aspects of the decision-making process.

Gayle She would always get back to us straight away, even when we would ask questions that had nothing to do with her field. She would always be able to point us in the right direction with her many contacts.

Gayle is a committed professional who tailors her services to the needs and context of her clients. She is clear- sighted and focused; she sets extremely high standards for herself and devotes whatever energy and resources are required in order to achieve them.

Engaging with Gayle and the team was the best financial decision we have made in years. Having never worked with a finance intermediary before we were unsure of what to expect, however the personalised options put together were outstanding. It is clear that Gayle listens and understands the desired outcomes, and in our case, worked tirelessly on finding the right solutions. We were kept updated right throughout the process, calls quickly returned, and information readily shared in a simple manner (even the paperwork was easy and straightforward!)

I would urge anyone reviewing their current financial position, or seeking financial guidance to contact Gayle; I’m sure you will be as impressed as we have been.

My partner and I cannot thank Gayle and the team at Stapleton finance enough, we had an unintentional long road to purchasing our first home that started with Gayle years ago. But from the moment we contacted Gayle regarding finance we knew we had made the right choice.

We were given clear direction of what we needed to do to achieve our goals not just at the beginning but with regular check ups along the way.

Entering the market at such uncertain times could have been so much more difficult did we not have the guidance, support and care that we had from Gayle and her team, everything was broken down for us and all options presented for us to make choices to best suit our situation.

Even in the most challenging of times we managed to enter the housing market and secure a fantastic home loan option, this would have been literally impossible without the assistance and guidance of Gayle and her team.

We will not hesitate to use Stapleton Finance in the future.

Gayle and Nicole have both gone out of their way to help us in securing our new home. We have been working with Gayle for over 18mths and she has been nothing but patient, informative and goes above and beyond. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will be using Gayle again.

Once again Gayle and team find the best product that suited our requirements in an efficient no nonsense manner. I have used Gayle many times before in the past with both business and personal financial requirements, and would not consider using anyone else.

A special thanks to Gayle and Nicole. We tried to refinance our home/investment loans and got no-where with our bank. Gayle was able to source great rates, new accounts and made it happen in no time at all. The whole process was so smooth. I can highly recommend your services.
