Real customers.
Real stories.

Real life is not always simple. Here are some examples of how Athena has helped different customers get more flexibility.

No delays for small business owner John

John started his own business just over a year ago. He wanted to buy a home but didn't have any completed tax returns.

Athena accepted two Quarterly BAS statements and an accountant's letter for income verification and was able to get John pre-approved quickly. He purchased his dream home much sooner than he expected saving him time, money and stress. Now he can focus on his business and owning his home faster.

Consolidating Sam's debts

Sam was paying interest on six different debts, with six different interest rates. He was in arrears on some of these loans, and wanted to improve his cashflow.

Athena looked beyond his credit score and helped Sam refinance his home loan and consolidate his debts. He chose to start with a 40 year loan term to help lower his initial repayments. He can change this later when his financial situation improves. Sam is now saving a tonne of money and stress and on his way to paying down that loan sooner.

Tricia and Ted's rural dream

Tricia and Ted had just started new jobs and wanted to move to a rural town. They were having difficulty finding a lender who would give them a loan to buy a non-metropolitan home.

Thanks to Athena's flexible borrowing policies, an Athena Loan Expert got Tricia and Ted approved for a loan in the location they wanted quickly and easily. They've since found their new home and moved!

If you're happy with one of the loan options, we'll help you submit an application. Your Loan Expert will support you through every step and you can ask them anything throughout the process.
