iRefi was set up to help kiwis with their finances.
The team at iRefi.co.nz are passionate about putting people over profits. We work together, learn together and share knowledge as you would expect a sports team to support each other.
iRefi was started by Macleans College school friends Andrew and Chuck (Andrew used to coach Chuck at rugby). They previously spent time building software for mortgage and insurance advisers but found most businesses were slow to adapt to the new world of technology, and were often difficult to help.
The thing that really frustrated the pair was that this often left the adviser’s clients worse-off, bogged down in paperwork, and usually getting a poor level of service by commissioned advisers who were very self motivated. They knew they could do better, and started iRefi Mortgages. In less than 12 months, they had reviewed over $1 billion worth of lending for New Zealanders.
Blandon Leung was also instrumental in the success of iRefi from the beginning, bringing a wealth of previous mortgage experience to the table and a passion for seeing his clients achieve a brighter financial future. From the beginning, it was his efforts that kept the team sailing in the right direction, and focused on keeping our clients happy, healthy, and wealthy.
Of course, Ben & Jon Krebs our lead developers provide the engine of growth for the business, having pulled many sleepless nights building the platform that’s saved our clients and advisers thousands of hours of admin.
