What people are saying about MSA

We love what our customers have to say about us, below are just a few of the great comments we get everyday.

Annie Nhan from you Sydney office has gone far and away beyond her requirements to assist in getting a settlement to occur when she simply could have let it slide and not happen. This file has been a real challenge to enable a refinance and purchase settlement to be booked. Responsive, proactive and exceptionally polite are the words that encapsulate Annie’s performance. In this matter, MSA can truly be proud of Annie’s commitment and how she portrays MSA in a great light.

Hi Sally, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent service myself and my clients receive from you consistently. It is rarely acknowledged when a business and their staff provide a unique service. I really want to thank you! I have never had a bad dealing with MSA and you are always fabulous!

Thank you so much! Looking forward to working with you in the new year (or sooner!) Thanks again Sally.

Just wanted to pass on my appreciation of John Makhoul’s work in the discharge settlement of two properties from PLAN Lending for my client. John was extremely helpful in his willingness to go the extra mile in achieving a deadline to avoid a court injunction and a massive headache. John’s experience was paramount and his service was well beyond expected. He kept in touch with myself and my staff and assisted incoming lenders in pushing things along.

It’s very rare when dealing with discharging lenders because they have little regard for assistance in matters that don’t involve a purchase. John’s assistance and clarity around processes and timing was invaluable in us getting the matters over the line, and his assuredness took a huge weight off my shoulders. Again, a huge thank you to John, he has done wonders for the reputation of your firm.

I just wanted to call out Ipek for her work on getting this settlement booked and finalised and the amount of work that she put into this. Ipek spent 2 days probably largely dedicated to this one settlement and went above and beyond in trying to get a booking for us. Ipek rang multiple bankers, associates and business contacts and finally managed to get it booked by our deadline.

Ipek kept in constant contact with me during this time so I knew exactly what was happening and where this was at. Appreciate her ownership and she played a big part in getting this client across, smoothly and without delay. Thanks again!!

Bec Barrett

Hi Danica, Just writing this email to thank you for all your hard efforts. You have gone above and beyond to make sure my files settle without any issue. You have been prompt and very understanding. You are a great asset to the MSA RAMS team. I strongly suggest that you get a decent pay rise. Please forward this email to your superiors so that your hard work does not go unnoticed. This message is also to all of the RAMS MSA team. Thanks to you all for your hard efforts.

Some positive feedback from my experiences today with one of the Paralegal's at MSA SA. My client was having a few issues executing her loan documents (confusion around the change of name form and requirements). Siobhan Gunter, was emailing my client this morning assisting, the client then personally dropped the documents into MSA SA and advised Siobhan that this has been done, Siobhan then emailed the client.

WI am really impressed with the customer service from Siobhan to my client, she then sent a following email confirming that settlement is booked in for Wednesday!

Andrew Prakash

Keep up the good work guys!

I want to point out Dimitiri Haddad from who has been extremely helpful this whole year! Not only this year but even when I was working with UBank he has been the same... He truly represents MSA’s values on his sleeve.

It’s not just his great personality but it’s his honest and helpful manner is what stands him out. I know each year we have busy periods and stressful times, but he is always eager to help when he can and is honest if he can’t. But will always find the best resolution to any matter put in front of him. He is a true leader and it is always a pleasure working with him.

His team are all wonderful and it is a reflection of a great Team Leader.

Thank you Kieren for getting back to me; much appreciated with all the stress

Virgin/Macquarie/Perpetual Ltd have caused me, not just with this matter either. I appreciate that you replied to me, not that you had to; but this shows the difference of true client care, not that you are working for us; (the little fish); but you have seen the true fairness in all of this.

Mrs Tracey Lee Ross

Thanks so much for confirming the loan has settled. Yes I would like to pass on my feedback - I think you all did an amazing job. Everyone was very helpful and worked hard to ensure this settlement happened without delay. Thank you to you and the MSA team for making this happen!

I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation of the service provided by your team member, Iasmina. In the past 24 hours she has gone above and beyond standard service levels to assist us with the above discharge matter and we cannot praise her highly enough.

Harry Inns

Hi Rose, Outstanding service! You put FMS, Gardens, SAIG etc. miles behind!

Stanley Duan

I would like to share a great experience that I had with one of your team, Ron Prasad. Very fortunate that I come across Ron, who take the extra mile, takes the ownership of a complex problem and being very patient helping our mutual client resolving the issue.

From my dealings with most other team members from various institutions, I rarely come across with someone with fantastic attitude and willing to assist with a problem right to the very end. I highly recommend Ron, praise all his effort and very grateful for all his help.

David Chia
Yellow Brick Road

I just want to express my gratitude to Ron Prasad for the assistance he provided in having a file settled last Friday that was quickly escalating into a total disaster and pending complaint to the Credit Ombudsman due to incessant delays that was causing the client money and personal distress.

Ron took control, called the client and also spoke to myself and the settlement was effected promptly. He is a valuable member of your team and turned an extremely unpleasant experience into a satisfactory result.

Thank you…

Hi Anne, Thanks for letting me know and for all of your help on a most difficult file. MSA’s service is always excellent but you have gone above and beyond the call of duty with this one.

Gary Huggins

Thanks again for your support and every wonderful MSA staff’s efforts. I’ve copied everyone in MSA I had contacted with in this email to acknowledge their impressive capability to handle urgent deals. I especially want to say thank you to Ipek who managed to settle this loan on last Friday when the customer just returned docs on last Wednesday. She is patient, nice, knowledgeable and willing to help in many instances!

All in all, you all are brilliant! I have no doubt that we all will work well in the future

Daniella Pan

I just wanted to let you know of the outstanding service that your staff member John Makhoul provided us with earlier this week in helping to get a settlement booked in after a lengthy delay with the incoming lender we were working with. We had a related purchase settlement which had numerous delays to which our client was hit with penalty fees and interest due to not being able to settle on time.

John was able to assist in booking in the required discharge settlement when required and even called in a favor with one of his contacts at the settlement agent when we were told by the agent that they could not move settlement due to MSA not being ready, which was not the case at all. Thanks to John's efforts here, he saved the client over $200 in extra penalties with his can do attitude.

I only wish there was more people like John out in the finance world!

Gary Rowe
Mortgage Choice

I reached out to Danielle yesterday when I was having trouble getting a settlement booked in. I believe the file manager, Brittany, had been off sick so I was unsure of who to go to.

Danielle instantly responded to my email with saying that she will follow up with the OFI. The OFI was not ready but Danielle told me should would call back again that day- even giving me a 2 hour time frame. Danielle called back that day and told me she would have an update by 10am the next day. Due to her persistence, she managed to get hold of the OFI case manager and persevered with them until she made a booking. She called me straight away today.

I feel in this situation, Danielle has gone way over and above to ensure that we received a timely result. As we all know, booking in discharges can be tiresome. This could have potentially dragged on for another week or so but due to her efforts she has turned around the client experience to be an incredibly positive one.

Danielle fully familiarised herself with the file so she knew the full scenario which I feel allowed her to respond to the questions that the OFI received, without coming back to us and doubling up on questions that had already been answered. All in all, we are extremely impressed with the level of customer service she has provided to us and her delightful manner and email tone has made her a pleasure to deal with.

Polly Hoynes-Robson

Firstly I have been so impressed by your efforts in getting this file to completion at the busiest time of the year and can only give you the highest praise for your excellent customer service. I would also like to acknowledge and thank Tony Lu and Emma Neiberding for their super quick actions in getting documents issued.

All in all the service from MSA has been nothing short of outstanding in the handling of this matter.

Just want to congratulate you on your excellent service and phone manner. Very timely with getting back to me/client and just really polite in all of my dealings.

This is an email to let you know what an amazing team you have, our office is set break what we believe is a rams record this month in settlements. This would not have been possible without MSA but mainly the team we deal with on a daily basis

Sarah, Mary, Ipek, Reema, Priya, Tamara. Docs prep team being Deanna, Emma. They are just so helpful, they are amazing and so much fun to work with… What a great team,

Ryan Gair

I just wanted to share the below email from one of my brokers, regarding the Great work that Geoff Erskine has done. I do appreciate all the work you guys do for us, it is a” Breath of fresh air “ dealing with an organisation that care. Thank You!

Karen Jones

We refer to Mr John Makhoul of your office and would like to advise we have been over the moon with his service, we recommend him for a payrise. His services have been amazing, we are so happy to be dealing with a professional. As we are aware MSA have been through quite a number of employees and hope we can continue the business with John Makhoul.

He really is one in a million.


Just wanted to provide some very positive feedback regarding a recent situation that Gabriele Sperling at MSA helped me with.

We were very close to having a breach of contract due to a deposit bond issue with a young couple purchasing their first home (fast track). The couple had to apply for an extension to allow time for us to get 2nd Mortgage consent from the clients guarantors – which was going to take a long time, putting their extension and deposit at risk. Gabriele was able to liaise with NAB in NSW, me, settlements and the consent team at St George and we were able to get their deposit bond in one day before their deadline. The clients were absolutely amazed and very grateful. Now we are on track for settlement and all parties involved are feeling good about moving forward.

Really want to say a big thankyou to Gabriele for her amazing work on this one!!

Joshua Ebbels

I usually do not write emails like this but the amazing customer service I’ve had over the phone and in person deserves recognition. Megan has been so polite and outstanding on such a difficult file. It is really nice to experience service like this and is very much appreciated.

Ana Sijercic

I would like to praise one of your staff members John Makhoul. He has made the process of a discharge booking easy. He has been efficient and has gone above and beyond. I have had to call him a few times and each time he has been patient with me and chased what needs to be done. Thank you to John for providing a great service and having my file run smoothly.

Kylie Mason

I hope you know we appreciate it. Even our clients know you!!! We tell them how much you help us at the final stages of their loan. Truly, thank you for what you do.

Warren Freeman

Thank you so much for sending this Settlement Letter through and providing a smooth transaction process for settlement.

I look forward to dealing with MSA in the future.

Patricia Yovanovic

One of the major reasons we chose to go with this lender was because of MSA's legendary settlement service. I recently completed a survey initiated by a lender and put MSA right on top.
