Making a Difference to Chris and Renea

Living in the beautiful Northern Rivers has its benefits. Not only can Chris and Renea enjoy their rural family lifestyle, they’re only a short drive from their favourite beach; which is ideal with two kids.

Before Chris and Renea bought a block of land, they asked Summerland for advice on building their dream home, so they could secure their family’s future. They also wanted to live comfortably, but at the same time didn’t want “so much money tied up in our home loan that we can’t do things we want to do.”

Summerland were able to advise the family on the best way forward, so they could live the lifestyle they wanted. “Knowing that our home loan is in good hands means that we can financially afford to go on a holiday or go overseas,” says Renea.

 

 

Alongside the financial advice from Summerland, Chris and Renea appreciate having a good relationship with the staff at their local branch and the rapport the staff have built with their children.

“We went there last week, and a staff member sponsored our son in the fun run - it was fantastic,” commented Renea.

“It's very family orientated there,” added Chris.

For those that are wanting to enjoy the Northern Rivers lifestyle, Renea has one piece of advice. “Shop around and see what sits well with you - everyone is different, but choosing Summerland was the right choice for our family.”
