Building a new home loan experience

At Tella, we believe getting a home loan should be an exciting time, not an intimidating one. That’s why we’re challenging the way our industry operates and stripping away all the jargon, paperwork and trips to the bank. Our innovative home loan application process was designed to help make your home loan journey simpler, faster, easier to understand, and more enjoyable. Outside work we’re into the same things you are: spending time with friends and family, travelling (when we can!), keeping fit and making a positive difference in our local communities. We have varied interests but a shared passion for helping Kiwis into homes. Let us help you!

We care about your experience

We get it

The process of getting a home loan can feel overwhelming and stressful. Your home is probably the biggest purchase of your life, and you want to get it right. That’s why we’ve developed an easier home loan experience – one that still gives you peace of mind about your purchase – but is faster, more flexible and fun.

We love what we do

The team at Tella have helped Kiwis into homes for years. It’s a feeling that never gets old.

Our focus is on you

Without you our business wouldn’t exist. That’s why we work hard to make sure you have the best home loan experience with us, and you feel valued and respected. Getting you into the home of your dreams is the reason we’re here.

We're always here for you

We’re here to support you at every stage of your home loan journey. So, use our LiveChat, flick us an email or pick up the phone and let us help.

Trust is everything

We’re asking you to trust us with your finances. It‘s a big ask and we don’t take that responsibility lightly.
