The online mortgage broker

About us


Our mission

uno is an online mortgage broker with one mission: to help you beat the home loan system.

Let’s be real here: the old way of getting a home loan sucks. It’s the biggest financial transaction of your life, but you feel like you’re constantly losing a battle against the banks and brokers. So uno is here to flip that feeling on its head by bringing you an experience that’s easier, simpler, and gets you the best financial outcome for your situation – so you feel like you’ve won.  

We’re talking about banishing clunky paperwork, bringing you expert advice around the clock, and (finally!) giving you access to the same information that banks and brokers use.

So what makes uno different?

Cutting edge tech – so you see everything

Ever been to a comparison site, punched in your details, and been presented with a few generic home loans rates that aren’t even tailored to you? It may as well be the ‘90s.

When you enter your details into uno’s platform, you enter the 21st century. Our technology, affectionately nicknamed POE, assesses your individual situation against 50,000 lender rules on interest rates, loan features and credit policies and displays a short list of mortgage options best suited to you. The result is more analysis than a human (or ‘90s tech) could ever do, matching home loans across our entire database of 20+ lenders to your specific circumstances.

We’re right by your side

We believe in empowering you with great tech which shows you all your home loan options, but won’t leave you alone in the wilderness to figure things out.  Our home loan experts (aka real humans) are here to shower you with support 60 hours a week – from 8am to 6:30pm weekdays and from 9am to 5pm on Saturday. They’re available via chat, email, phone, text, and video to advise you on how to best structure your loan, advocate for you to lenders, help you apply, and keep you updated.

No playing favourites

There’s no favourites club or VIP list for our lenders. We’ll only ever recommend a lender or product to you based on suitability for your individual circumstances.

Plus our team of home loan experts don’t receive an individual commission when you settle a loan with uno, so you know that they’re looking out for your interests, not fattening their own hip pocket. Commission from lenders is paid to uno, as a business, and is invested in the technology, platform, content as well as our people so that we can not only offer you a better deal but great advice too.

We’re shaking up home loans – and the industry is noticing

Our fresh take on home loans is helping thousands of Australians and catching quite a few eyes, including Westpac’s – which we’ve secured as an investor and majority shareholder.

Having Westpac as an investor has enabled uno to turn our dream of a next-generation home loan experience into a reality.

We’ve assembled a formidable team of home loan experts and built cutting edge tech that gives you access to the information that banks and brokers use, in the palm of your hand. Ultimately, we’re smashing down the barriers that have previously existed between the mortgage industry and customers; empowering Australians in the biggest financial decision of their lives; and as a result, changing the way they end up choosing their home loans.

Around two thirds of our loans end up going to non-major lenders – a big shift away from the Australian industry average of circa three quarters going to the big four – which proves that, when you empower consumers with great tech in the palm of their hands, they choose differently.
