About Us

Back in 2007, just when the global economy was battening down the hatches, John ‘JB’ Bolton had different ideas. He reckoned more than ever, people buying houses needed someone in their corner.

That’s when Squirrel was born. On the surface it’s a mortgage brokerage, but it’s also a whole lot more. In a market where everyone works for the seller, JB wanted a business that would fight for the buyer.

And he was plenty qualified for it. JB had been a big cheese in bank world, dealing with more than $40b in mortgages and deposits over his time with some of New Zealand’s leading banks.

He’s also a property investor himself, so he brought insight and experience from both sides of the fence.

Now, all this time later, JB and the Squirrel team help first home buyers, new investors and old hands cut through the spin, make better purchasing decisions, get better terms from their banks and have a nicer time of it in the market. We currently write more than $90m in mortgages every month – that’s over $1b per year.

We’ve won just about every award for brokering there is. But what makes us feel happiest is the feedback we get from happy clients.

Lindsay is great but really, really busy with volume of clients so we had to chase him up. I'd still recommend him however as he has a great manner and is very customer focussed.

I went on holiday and found a property I loved so required funding very quickly. At the time I was already committed to settling a new property so this was a pretty complicated and for me a pretty stressful time.
I can not speak highly enough of Aatish - he listened to what I was wanting to achieve and worked through the ways we could achieve this. My Bank gave me a flat "no"
I now own my dream property. Aatish is very professional, helpful, "human" and solutions focused.
I would definitely recommend Squirell and Aatish.

JB was super helpful, proactive and prompt. He quickly understood what I needed from this loan, researched the market and gave me a clear range of choices. After we discussed how to proceed, he made it happen super quick. Well done.

I dealt with Faye Foster as my mortgage broker to help purchase my first home. She was really supportive, encouraging, friendly and approachable and had great communication. I would recommend Faye to anyone seeking a broker, she helped me own my first home.

Kyle was fantastic for us from our very first meeting, designing a plan that was tailor made for us and really helping us throughout the entire process of securing our first mortgage. Looking forward to working with him in the future to further reduce our mortgage and grow our portfolio.
