Based in the Victorian regional city of Geelong, Achieve Home Loans believe that every client deserves the best of care and service when refinancing or purchasing the home of their dreams. That’s why we adhere to a strong one-on-one personal service path. We endeavour to help every client find the right loan that will not only meet their needs today, but also have the flexibility to meet their future funding requirements as life and lifestyle changes come about.


Managing Director of Achieve Home Loans, Will McKenzie boasts more than four decades of experience in the finance sector and knows the ins and outs of the home loan market. 

Will maintains the key fundamentals of always putting the client’s needs first. “I remember my early working days as a bank junior. The bank Manager was looked upon as a respected friend and financial confidant of his clients.  He knew each one on a first name basis and was intimately acquainted with their financial affairs and position” 


“Over time, we have seen this bank culture erode to the point where today, most bank clients are simply just another number”.  


“However, at Achieve, we realise that our clients are real people with dreams, hopes and aspirations. They are not just treated as numbers, but as members of the Achieve family!  In this industry, the old-fashioned values of one-on-one personal service, especially when it comes to their financial affairs and wellbeing, still ring true.  That in itself remains the very essence of the Achieve Home loans ethos”


“With access to numerous recognised lending institutions, we can accommodate all types of mortgages including purchases, refinances, equity take outs, debt consolidation and loans for self-employed and the credit impaired”.

our motto is simple

let us help you "achieve" your home ownership dream

why choose us?


Achieve Home Loans founder and chief executive Will McKenzie commenced his career in the banking sector as a junior employee way back in the early seventies !!! In the ensuing fifty years he has seen many changes in the finance world. The impacts of the stock market crash in 1987, the ensuing credit squeeze and then the oil crisis in the early 1980’s, the global financial crisis in the nineties etc. etc. etc. and of course more recently the global covid 19 pandemic. Through all of this, two things have remained constant. Peoples hopes dreams and aspirations of home ownership and the need for the funds to “achieve” them AND Will’s commitment to always treat his customers as number one, building long term relationships with them whilst finding the right funding solution for their individual circumstances. As testament to this long-established customer service ethos, we now have many “family connected” clients where we are now arranging loans for the children of our initial clients.


Trust should be implicit in any relationship and building and earning trust with our clients is paramount at Achieve. The ongoing growth and success of our business relies upon the goodwill and satisfaction of our existing clients in referring new people to us. Rather than take our word for it, take a look below and see what our customers have to say about us. We would love to see your name amongst those at some time in the future.
