About dm

dm consult

dm consult mortgages + insurance was established in 2014 by Darrin McCormack.

Prior to this Darrin worked in banking with ANZ for 17 years before moving on to establish a well known Mortgage Brokering brand in Hawke’s Bay, where he became one of their top brokers nationally.  Darrin has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge about mortgages & finance throughout his career, and over the last four years dm consult has helped thousands of Hawke’s Bay residents to secure over $700 million of finance for housing purchases, building loans, top ups, refinancing, lifestyle loans, holiday-homes and business loans.

In 2018, Emma Hall joined the dm consult mortgages + insurance team as a Mortgage Adviser/broker and along with Brad Collett (Brad Collett Insurance Advisers Ltd), our dm team have gained a reputation for always putting clients first, being honest and doing the right thing by the client. In 2020, Amy Walker and Danny Blackman joined the dm team to support our continued business growth as advisers.

The future is looking very bright for those who choose dm consult, so give us a call – we’d love to help you achieve your goals!



We treat each client with dignity and respect. We listen attentively to their goals and needs.

Cost Effective

Our services cost nothing as we don't charge our clients, but instead get paid directly from the lender.

Entirely Client Focussed

Our focus is entirely on the client and doing the right thing for their situation.

Why dm consult?

In short, a Mortgage Advisor does the hard work for you when it comes to arranging finance with a lender.

dm consult will meet with you to identify your finance needs and then give you options that best fit your circumstances.  We will explain the process as we go along, in a way you can understand so you don’t have to decipher confusing bank jargon.   Depending on what sort of lending you require, we are happy to offer debt reduction advice, seek a pre-approval for you so you can figure out what you can afford to buy, or seek out other avenues if your current bank is not being helpful.  If there are products you are eligible for e.g. Kiwisaver Withdrawal/Housing New Zealand Homestart Grant, we will help you with your application for this.

We pride ourselves on taking the hassle away from you, and because we deal with lenders directly on a daily basis we can place your loan application according to your requirements, and help you achieve your finance goals.

The best part of the process is we don’t charge you!
