Who Are True North Mortgage Solutions?

True North Mortgage Solutions offer a personally tailored service to find you the best value loan based on your objectives. Principal broker David Gawthrop has worked in the finance industry for over 29 years with over 16 of those spent as a broker. It's our goal to make sure finding the most competitive loan for your new home, startup business or renovation is as easy and painless as possible.

We don’t charge a fee for our service to you, we are paid a commission by whichever lender you take out a loan with and that commission does not affect the rate and fees you pay on your loan. We will often get you a better rate than if you deal with your bank directly.

Most importantly of all, we love seeing our clients happy!

Meet David Gawthrop

I created True North Mortgage Solutions because it's my passion to find my clients the most appropriate finance solution to help them meet their goals & dreams.

With so many years experience as a broker I have built up a vast network of trusted lenders, financial advisors, accountants, conveyancers, lenders and lawyers. I work closely with my network of lenders and professionals to find you the most competitive mortgage solution plus additional services & advice that suit your unique personal circumstances and objectives.

I work closely with all my clients to understand what they want to achieve and find them the financing solutions to make that happen! Whether it's a new home loan, getting a better deal on your existing mortgage, or investing in property I love seeing my clients happy and that drives me to be the best I can be.

Think of me as your personal mortgage navigator - helping you through the maze of options to get the right mortgage solution so you can go exactly where you want to go and achieve your property & lifestyle goals.
