Prior to joining the Green Team, I occupied management roles at Australia's largest commercial bank – National Australia Bank (NAB). I have broad experience in business, corporate, equipment and property debt and thrive on complex transactions.
James Kelder came highly recommended and after dealing with him I know why. This was my first commercial deal and James made the process so easy for me. He took time to explain things in detail and the ramifications of each option. The initial deal went through smoothly largely due to James.
He has since followed up and helped refinance taking into account all the factors not necessarily just the cheapest rate.
James Kelder helped me out and was able to secure a sizeable credit packages to help with the acquisition of multiple commercial properties. James always shown innovation in his recommendations as he looked for the best result on my behalf. Importantly, James always answered promptly to my discussions. In every way, he goes above and above. He has a sterling moral compass and genuinely cares about seeing you succeed.
James is fantastic and passionate about what he does. It is impossible to suggest enough.
James Kelder was recommended to us by a real estate agent about 4 years ago to refinance a commercial property which was done very quickly with good outcome for ourselves.
Since then he has organsied vehicle leases / shop fit outs and property purchases for us.
His professional approach to all finance matters have taken a lot of the work load away.
He is easy to talk to and he is interested in your business and how it works which enables him to come up with the right formula for your business finance.
It is nice to do business with a person that has the right attitude and can be reached all the time.
Will do more with James over the coming years.
James knows his numbers, knows how the banks' credit teams operate and can certainly help seek you the best source of funds at competitive rates.

He provides regular updates and the parties referred to him also speak very highly of his professionalism and the lengths he goes to to help. James is extremely knowledgable and I highly recommend him.

The process was so easy. James is supported by a great team at Green Finance, who ensure all the details are covered. Highly recommend and will definitely be using again for future transactions.
After approaching 5 different lenders and getting nowhere I was reluctant to try again but James was amazing! He found a way to make things work for us and help us move forward. Couldn't recommend his services more. If you have a complicated situation or just something easy hes your guy! 10 stars wouldnt be enough! Thank you!
James Kelder assisted me and successfully negotiated a substantial finance package to assist in the purchase of a commercial property located in New South Wales. I consistently found James to be innovative in his proposals as he sought out the best possible outcome on my behalf. Importantly, James always responded promptly to my communications as the deal progressed through to settlement during a difficult period in dealing with a major bank where the approval and paperwork was being dealt with as the bank executive worked from his home.
I would certainly recommend James as at all times, he dealt with me in a very professional manner.
I needed a review of all my commercial loans and someone who could find the best loan options & rates and I recommend James Kelder who not only found exactly what I was looking for, but handled all the correspondence and communication with the bank making the process extremely easy. Also following up to see if there was anything else that I need.
