About Us

Columbia Finance Pty Ltd was established in 1990 as a commercial mortgage broker and originator.

We are a boutique company specializing in sourcing investment or development finance secured by commercial or residential property.

Our principal, Don Heideman, is a Chartered Accountant and graduated in 1984 with a Bachelor of Accountancy degree. Prior to founding Columbia Finance, Don spent 7 years working at top tier international Accounting firms.

Our experience spans in excess of 20 years and we can modestly lay claim to having sourced finance for every conceivable type of property, whether it be vacant land or a large shopping centre or anything in between.

Why use us to source your next loan?

As a property purchaser you have spent an enormous amount of time, money , effort and meticulous due diligence in acquiring a property and the last thing you need is an abundance of frustration with obtaining the finance you need .

To put it simply... we take the stress out of the whole ordeal.

We rapidly address all the issues upfront. We don't believe in trying to "sweep things under the carpet". It never works- you always get found out.

If there are hurdles we will advise you of them straight away and more importantly, we will overcome them.

We will not let you down and leave you scrambling around at the last minute to seek alternate finance that will no doubt be more costly, time consuming, frustrating and stressful.

The simple fact is we get paid on a "success basis" and therefore we don't take on loans that we cannot deliver on.

We are honest, straight shooters and we will always under promise and over deliver.

Our role is to obtain a loan for you that is well priced on reasonable terms and to save you an awful lot of time- time that could be invested in your business, career, other investment opportunities or at your leisure.
