By far the best broker in Melbourne. Exceeding customer expectations is their top priority. They know exactly the product right fit with lowest mortgage rate.

I engaged Jay for a construction loan with complicated circumstances. Jay was able to work out the accurate borrowing power and find us the lowest rates with no ongoing fees. The process of building was smooth sail and the handling of Informedfs ensured progress payment was done on time and Jay kept us always updated.

I highly recommend InformedFS and Jay Buenaventura for any mortgage related service no matter how complicated your situation is, he will always give what is best for you. Thank you Jay and it was an absolute pleasure to have you as our broker!


Mohamad B, Aintree

We recently refinanced with Jay. Having gone through this painful process in the past I wasn’t too keen to do it again. Jay allayed our fears and ensured we went through a pretty painless process. I found Jay to be a super professional and genuine person to deal with. Would absolutely recommend anyone looking to borrow for a house or refinance to consider speaking to Jay. Also got a great interest rate which has saved us heaps of $$$


Daniel N, Williams Landing

Can’t recommend Jay highly enough.. he got our home & investment loans through in record time & made the whole process really easy. Excellent knowledge & turnaround times. Jay was always responsive & happy to help.


Ryan & Gemma W, Williamstown

I was unsure at the start because there are a lot of shady people in this sort of business. Jay earned my trust in a short period of time. He was always in contact with us and went out of his way to help us with the refinance and additional investments. I have recommended Jay to friends and colleagues as a trustworthy and professional advisor.


Kersten V, Wallan

Jay and his team were the only ones who actually tried to help us and did even the impossible to get our home loan application approved. He was very patient and supportive during the whole process. I would highly recommend him to everyone.


Galina & Vlad, Ripponlea

Nothing was ever a problem for him. Made the whole experience of buying a house less stressful.


Todd & Emily, Wallan

Jay understands the situation and puts himself in the customer’s shoes. He also works outside of the normal work hours, answering my questions sometimes on weekends and late nights.


Louie L, Sassafras

Understood my needs and recommended the right product. Thank you for a pleasant and effortless experience in my refinancing. I will definitely refer Informed Financial Services to my friends and colleagues.


Timothy E, Reservoir

Very prompt and professional with every step of the way. No dramas whatsoever.


Dean & Mai, Keysborough

Jay was able to help us with the finance of some investment properties. He is trustworthy and always willing to help, even after hours. I have recommended him to my daughter who also organised her finance through Jay and other friends of our family.


Kersten V, Wallan

Jay has been amazing to work with. I have been through a few refinances before in my life and it is like pulling teeth out. Jay made a very comprehensive and extensive process look very easy. Jay definitely went above and beyond my expectations of a broker/ banker. Would recommend to anyone looking to get a home loan.
