Yes I know that I don't need to use a Christchurch broker but I would prefer to deal with them in person. Unfortunately the broker I have used before no longer operates in Chch. 

I'm looking for a recommendation based on good results please, not just "I used this guy here is his number".

I highly recommend Marion Moloney from Mortgage Express. We have used her and recommended her to several friends. She got us a .5% discount and removal of low LVR fees as well as double the standard costs that the bank ususally gives for legal fees etc. She even helped us track down a structural engineer not long after the Canterbury quakes at short notice (bank decided with only a few days left on conditional offer that they wanted an Engineering Report).

Have you sat down with any banks to see what they can offer ?
We spoke to three different brokers a few years ago, all three laughed at us and said we were dreaming when we said what we were after. Yet the bank offered what we wanted plus more.....

I also used Marion Moloney, from Mortgage Express, and she was excellent. I got a much better deal through her than I could have negotiated with the bank myself.
