Your Local Expert

Welcome to Wine Country Financial Services. I’m Nick Dunn, the owner, and I’m thrilled to introduce you to our company.

Our mission at Wine Country Financial Services is to bring versatile lending expertise to the Hunter Valley, drawing from over a decade of experience gained in the dynamic Sydney banking sector.

During the last eight years of my banking career, I had the privilege of working closely with mortgage brokers, assisting them in optimising their businesses and achieving their utmost success. Now, as a finance broker, I am eager to enhance your customer experience and become your trusted advisor for all your lending requirements. As an award-winning banker, I understand what it takes to deliver exceptional service.

Having built our family home in North Rothbury five years ago, I’ve come to appreciate the Hunter Valley’s preference for local connections. While our business has national reach, we’ve named it with our local community in mind. If you’re part of our community, I would be honoured to advocate for you and provide tailored solutions designed specifically for your unique circumstances – without bias or unnecessary jargon, just honest, old-fashioned service and a solid handshake.

Beyond the realm of business, I am a devoted husband to Laura and a proud father to our beautiful daughter, Mia. I love all sports and enjoy nothing more than a round of golf at one of the Hunter Valley’s splendid courses, where my golf ball often receives passionate feedback. We also relish fine dining and savouring excellent wines, making the Hunter Valley the perfect place for us.

What our customers say

Our Customers

Nick found the best lender to suit our situation and was extremely knowledgeable about the current and anticipated market trends, which gave us the confidence to fix a portion of the loan at a great rate. He made the process of switching lenders perfectly seamless for us, keeping us updated throughout the process and explaining things in terms we could understand.

Elise & Scott

Nick was a huge help in refinancing our business loan into a home loan, which saved us a fortune in interest as the home loan rate was not only competitive but market-leading. He has stayed in touch for over 9 years now, regularly getting the lender to review our rate so we stay on the best deal possible.

Trish & Van

Thank you to Nick from Wine Country Financial Services for securing our vehicle finance. As a new business finance can be daunting. Nick was confident and competent in negotiating the best rate for us. More than a percent lower than the dealer finance!

Nick helped us organise our documentation and liaised with the dealership to ensure timely delivery of our new company vehicle. This purchase was essential to our growing business and we couldn’t be more thankful to Nick for his service.

Nick was friendly and communicated with us through the entire process. The purchase was seamless thanks to Nicks experience and expertise in finance. We highly recommend Nick and Wine Country Financial Services

Danny, Crystalline Cleaning Solutions

My biggest achievement in life so far. A lot of hard work has gotten me to this stage to say I have a block of land, and that’s mine!

Massive thanks to Nicholas Dunn at Wine Country Financial Services for all his hard work over the last month to get this over the line. Cheers to being a land owner!


Not all mortgage brokers are the same.

We chose Nick from Wine Country Financial Services due to his professional attitude, high ethics and in-depth knowledge of the finance industry. He exceeded our expectations.

We have dealt with many financial advisors and mortgage brokers over the years, and unlike a number of others, Nick cares about his clients’ needs rather than directing them to a product that provides more benefit to the broker than the client.

Nick helped us refinance our family home and purchase an investment property using the equity in our home. We were impressed with how hard he worked in finding us the best rate. The whole process was hassle-free.

We couldn’t recommend Nick more highly.

Carol & Tony

Nick was amazing! He got me to my goal in purchasing a house. He really knows his stuff and was guiding me every step of the way all whilst listening to my needs. Could not recommend Nick more!!! I will be definitely using Nick again in the future.
