Finance Wise Limited was established in October 2014 by Christine Legge. Nicola joined Christine in 2015 confident that she too could provide a better way to help clients with their home lending, better than any bank or institution could. Our offices are centrally located in Warkworth and we service the Rodney area with ease. Many of our clients prefer for us to visit them at their home at a time that is convenient, however you are always very welcome to meet us at the Finance Wise office. We are mobile and flexible with our working hours. Our client base far exceeds the Rodney area and we are happy to conduct skype/phone meetings, making life easy for you!


Sadly Christine left Finance Wise in September 2017. However Nicola continues with Finance Wise Limited to provide clients with lending assistance. Nicola is an experienced professional who happily balances her diverse community involvement with her business endevours and finds her biggest reward is helping people reach their goals. You will find her refreshingly personable, professional and determined to secure the best lending solution for you. Needless to say all contact will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
