The Piccolis

Here's how The Piccolis made the sea change

Michael and Sonya are two hard working teachers who love the north coast lifestyle and wanted a home by the ocean. Here’s how, with a little help from Greater Bank, they’re living the dream.

The Piccolis

Michael and Sonya shared their vision

Michael and Sonya knew the first step was working with a bank they could trust. Greater Bank explained their options and structured a home loan to suite their needs. This also gave Michael and Sonya a chance to travel to Japan for a family holiday of a lifetime.

We’re giving the kids the lifestyle we dreamed of


Michael and Sonya wanted to give their kids the fun of a coastal lifestyle. They loved the local community around Ballina and Lennox Head and found the home of their dreams at Skennar’s Head.

Greater Bank’s Ultimate Home Loan worked for Michael and Sonya with its free online redraws, low rate, and no penalties for getting ahead on repayments. Most importantly for Michael, was the time the local branch manager took to ensuring they were getting the best for their home loan and their finances.
