Here's how Shivangi bought her first apartment

Shivangi was looking for great service - someone to help her through the process of buying her first apartment, and that's exactly what she got with Greater Bank.

Here's how Shivangi bought her first apartment

She looked at the numbers and said "This is it!"

Shivangi is good with numbers, and she thought Greater Bank’s home loan rate was fantastic. But it was the service that really sealed the deal. Cutting through the banking jargon and making the process easy for a first home buyer meant the world to her. It meant she could own her own apartment in the city she loved.

Being a "people's bank" was important too


Shivangi values her quality of life. That’s why she loves living in Newcastle. It’s cosy and vibrant, with a real sense of community.

She found those same values in Greater Bank. The great service she received was even more important to her than the great rates.

Because as a customer-owned bank, there are no shareholders that need to be paid – it’s all about the customers' needs. And the support Greater Bank gives to the community Shivangi is proud to be a part of is just the icing on the cake. 

Here’s how Shivangi did it
