Ben Starr was exceptional in securing us a loan for our development. It was a struggle to secure a loan in last few months or a year because of the market changes, but Ben starr was able to approach different lenders , communicated with us throughout the whole process to the very day of settlement. I highly recommend the Lateral team.

Ben Starr is absolutely our go-to person for lending bar none. Ben sees our big picture and has now helped us secure lending for over 20 properties, even managing to find us suitable lending during the tightest of markets in 2022. He can pivot quickly as the lending story unfolds and offers informed, intuitive insights that have many times really helped us to strategise at pace. The number one thing we appreciate most about dealing with him is his style of communication. Ben always finds a way to keep everyone cool under time pressure, but while always moving the timeline along at a steady rate. His communication is second-to-none: lightning fast and crystal clear. Absolutely always a pleasure to do business with.

Ben Starr provided excellent service and advice on securing a mortgage for our property. Our case was quite complicated and various issues that suddenly arose were expertly handled by Ben. Highly recommended if you are looking for an adviser that keeps at it until the job is done.

"Lateral Partners have been looking after my financial banking interests for in recent years. They have done an outstanding job of managing the various banks and achieving a very efficient outcome for me with new and existing banking requirements. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to customers looking for someone to manage their banking interests with the overall goal of reducing their costs and making life easy."

Thanks to Ben and the team at LP for their exceptional service and helping us with Development Finance. After using 3 other brokerage firms with no success, the team at LP helped us from start to finish. Could not recommend them anymore!

"Ben Pauley and Lateral Partners have been our one stop shop for our development funding needs, they have a range of contacts, and were able to bring us multiple offers for a large development in the middle of the first COVID-19 lockdown when all the banks had shut up shop. Ben is responsive to all our requirements and needs, and we will be continuing to use him for our future funding arrangements"

"Ben and his team at Lateral Partners have been great to deal with. They arranged my home loan with little fuss last year and have been actively engaged providing informative and helpful advice to me whilst pursuing other projects. Their knowledge of the market and the available products is far reaching and second to none and they’re a great sounding board. I recommend giving them a call if you have any finance queries big or small, they are the perfect guys to assist!"

Antonia Baker

"We have found Ben to be very professional, efficient and extremely knowledgeable throughout our entire lending journey. He has the experience to offer many different lending options and the experience to quickly narrow down the best option for a particular situation while keeping you informed of all the implications. When the plan changes at the last minute and things could easily turn ugly Ben has always been calm, clear and decisive. We also find Ben an excellent sounding board for possible investments even if sometimes it means talking us out of borrowing via Lateral Partners!"

"Ben Starr and the team at Lateral Partners are extremely easy to work with and really go the extra mile. I was happy to take the time to write this recommendation, if you’re reading this don’t hesitate to reach out to the team, you will be well looked after.

Ben Starr made our first house purchase such an easy and smooth process. He always had time for our calls/emails and worked tirelessly to get the best mortgage rate for us. Thanks Ben and Lateral Partners!

David G

Ben at Lateral Partners has been nothing short of fantastic to deal with. He secured us development funding at Tier 1 bank level for our latest development at a great rate and made the whole process simple and enjoyable. This particular project was on-again off-again over the last few years due to market conditions and then Covid. Ben's willingness to help and his positive can-do attitude never faltered over the entire time, where others would have lost interest, demonstrating his commitment to his clients and their success. Do yourself a favour and get in touch with Ben and his team if you are looking for finance.
