Falcon Pools & Landscapes Pty Ltd

Dear Gayle, just a short note to thank you 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.

Best Regards,
Mark  Featherstone

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.

Thanks Gayle, we could not have done it without you and thanks also for your great house
warming present that appeared on our front door step when we moved in – so thoughtful.

A couple of years ago we had a thought about having a change of life style 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 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 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 so 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?  Where to start??

We were very fortunate once we made the decision to be introduced to Gayle Stapleton from Stapleton Solutions. 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 and we didn’t want to have to buy back into the Australian market.  Gayle made our transition so easy and kept us informed every step of the way. We have been so fortunate to have met Gayle and we couldn’t have done it with her.

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 identified the most appropriate Bank. Because the project information being 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 that clearly identified the Project’s scope and something worthwhile from a lenders point of view. With Gayle’s assistance we were able to identify and address Bank perceived risk issues, and ensure appropriate adequate security was provided.

The funding application prepared by Gayle was personalised for the project and ourselves as the borrower in a format that was clear and concise. Because of the quality and content of the loan application it was approved within a short time frame, terms and conditions were what we had expected. A year on, thanks to the relationship developed with Gayle and the bank we have now negotiated a considerable increase to the facility to Fund stage 2 of the Project.

I cannot recommend Gayle highly enough.

Gayle spent a great amount of time getting to know us, our circumstances and our requirements. She offered a wide range of products from different lenders. This empowered us to make a decision that we were comfotable with, not one forced upon us by a bank.

We now have a more flexible arrangement. We have already referred Gayle to another couple who she is currently assisting with their lending requirements.

If you are self-employed or a professional looking to restructure your finances, I can’t recommend Gayle highly enough.

Gayle 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 Gayle was helpful and professional throughout.

Thanks Gayle…

Undertaking a purchase of a business in a foreign country could have been a daunting process, except for the professional and hands-on business dealing of Gayle.

Gayle’s understanding of the financial institutions in both Australia & Vanuatu, provided me with a transaction which was completed on time, and worry free. 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 without hesitation, that I would recommend Gayle in any financial undertaking that you may be considering. 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.

Thank you Gayle for your total assistance in achieving of our current business venture. You can be assured you will be the first person I can call, for any future ventures.
Best Regards,

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, which she explained in a way that even I could understand. Seamless process. Very happy with the service!!
