Relationships can sometimes be hard work… and you know what makes them even harder? MONEY!

Thankfully, Relationships Australia CEO, Elisabeth Shaw, and Group Executive at CommBank, Sian Lewis, join me in this episode to provide the answers. Ohh... one more thing. Given we’re talking about relationships, I thought it was only fair that Laura comes along for the ride too!

Fear not because I’m chatting with CommBank Home Lending Specialist, Brooke McArdle, and proud Aussie home owner, Hannah Blackiston, to finally understand the technical stuff - like conditional pre-approval, interest rates and stamp duty.
