'Lorna empowered us, was easy to work with, dependable and solid. Lorna was the catalyst in achieving our dreams.
What Lorna does is go the extra mile. Lorna was always available even out of normal work hours and she always made us feel like we could ask her any question. Lorna was always well informed with free sound advice and gave clear information, informed options, and clear choices. Lorna created with us simple goals and plans to follow, never pressuring us and always making the options our choice, even if it took years :). When things got dark and when things got panicky, Lorna was like the dawn clearing the dark, just a phone call away to put us at ease. Lorna stepped in if needed be, addressing issues with other professional without having to be asked. She built a positive professional relationship with us to help us achieve what we wanted to. It feels as though she has always been a part of our family. I have recommended Lorna's services to many friends and family with excellent results. We wish Lorna, her family, and business team, a very prosperous future.
"Ehara taku toa, he taki tahi, he toa taki tini." Our achievement is not ours alone but was made possible by all our team.
Naku noa, na.

'Thanks to Lorna getting a mortgage was easy. The service was very professional and Lorna clearly explained all of the options for both the mortgage and insurance and shopped around to look for the best deal for me. I felt like I was in good hands.'

My partner and I were considering buying a house as we were paying a lot for rent, and we were due to have our first baby. Lorna welcomed us into her office and was so easy to talk to. She made us feel comfortable straight away. We knew nothing of the process of buying a house so it was a relief to know that Lorna would handle everything. And she did help with everything - from helping us with Kiwisaver, housing subsidies and lawyers, to drawing up a budget, insurances and our wills. I really felt that Lorna fought for us, making sure that we got the best deals around, she really looked after us. Lorna kept in constant contact with us, making sure we fully understood each process. I will always appreciate the wonderful experience we had buying our house, not only because we are homeowners, but because the process was made so easy with Lorna and the wonderful team at Prosper.'

'Awesome team. Made the process of buying a home very easy! Thank you.'
'I really want to thank you so much for the advice and help you have given to both myself and my clients in the past. When I worked with you personally you were extremely professional and guided me through each step. You were honest and explained things so that there were no surprises and I truly thank you very much. As a result, I have referred your service on to numerous clients and have received nothing but praise. Often these clients are purchasing their first home and need reassurance and guidance. You are always friendly, helpful and act immediately, going the extra mile and looking outside the square for a result. I have no hesitation in passing your name on to anyone needing to secure a mortgage. Thanks for everything Lorna.'

'We were running a business and decided to buy a house for our own living. The bank we were with didn't make any effort to assist us in achieving our goals and we got very frustrated with them. Then we remembered Lorna the lovely lady who assisted us in obtaining finance for our business.
Lorna put many options in front of us. We don't live in Rotorua so all of this was done via email and phone calls. We then asked for a meeting in which Lorna carefully went through the options until we found the one that best met our needs. This could have all done by distance but we were keen to meet up with Lorna because she is pleasant to be around with her great sense of humour and high level of energy.
Throughout the process we found Lorna efficient, practical and knowledgeable and her suggestions showed her depth of knowledge within the financial field. I particularly appreciated the constant contact that Lorna maintained, which was the opposite of our bank.
The very best thing was that we saved money by getting better interest rates and an all round better deal, one we could not have brokered ourselves. Proving it's worth having an expert to help.
We changed banks, which is not easy with a business, but it was a smooth process with Lorna guiding us all the way and we are happily working with our new bank.
When our mortgages come up for renewal you can guess who we are going to call first to see if we are getting a good deal. Yes, of course, it is Lorna Harris financier extraordinaire and all round nice person, thanks for everything Lorna.

'Thank you for getting us signed onto mortgage protection insurance. Sovereign Insurance has been amazing and the process has been so easy! Without the insurance, we would have probably have had to sell our house with Dave not working. I would recommend anyone to get mortgage protection insurance, as you just don't know what is around the corner, and I would also recommend Sovereign Insurance as a provider. Thank you for your good advice.'
