About Us

Ballarat Lending Centre was established by Ray Watson and developed a reputation for providing a valuable service to clients. In April 2019, Ray retired and transferred the Ballarat Lending Centre business to Sertori & Co Lending Centre Pty Ltd, which is led by Nigel Keating.

Ray advised his clients:

“I have identified Sertori & Co Lending Centre Pty Ltd as they share the same values and work ethic as I do. They exceeded my hopes for a Firm that I can align with; that
will continue the traditions we have for excellent service, expertise and a working environment I feel my clients would feel comfortable with.

The Changeover will be seamless and Ballarat Lending Centre’s contact details will remain unchanged. Ballarat Lending Centre will continue to provide you access to over 25 lenders to ensure the best outcome is achieved for your financial needs.

Thank you for your past support”.

When you call Ballarat Lending Centre, we will guide you through your loan process, providing you with information and support every step of the way. We believe that loan products should be easy to understand, easy to access and allow you peace of mind.

Regulations in the broking industry are continuing to improve across Australia. Think of your broker as being a professional resource in the same way you think of your accountant, financial planner or solicitor. We are in the business of building ongoing relationships with our clients and to think of your best interests, not those of the bank.

We will work with you and your service providers (such as real estate agent, conveyancer and lender), while ensuring we help you obtain the finance that best suits your circumstances and needs.

Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you today.
