On the back of Aussie’s successful first quarter business results, MPA Magazine has revealed that more than one quarter of Australia’s top mortgage brokers come from Aussie. With 26 brokers on this list of the nation’s best of the best, Aussie placed more than any other for the second year in a row.
“I am very proud of the Aussie team for once again ensuring an impressive representation in the top 100,” says executive director, James Symond.
“The 2012 results underpin our commitment to the thorough training, development and ongoing company support to every broker who works with the Aussie brand.”
Aussie ensures all of its new and existing brokers are members of the MFAA and are diploma qualified and supported through ongoing business academy training as well as having access to accredited credit coaches, company sourced leads and localised marketing support.
“Our brokers work to the highest possible standards of professionalism and are supported in every way throughout their tenure with Aussie, either as mobile brokers or franchisees with a store. The strong showing in the national top 100 list, coupled with the highest lead, lodgement and settlement figures we have seen since we acquired Wizard, is a testament to us that our holistic approach at Aussie has been a formula for our brokers success,” he continues.
Aussie was founded in 1992 by John Symond AM, who was widely credited with bringing competition to the Australian home lending industry. The company was unique in its approach to home loans, offering 24 hours a day service and loans far cheaper than those offered by banks. In 1994 Aussie introduced the securitisation of home loans, allowing it to offer loans upwards of 3% cheaper than its competitors. Over the last five years, Aussie has been voted as Australia’s Best Mortgage Broker in the Australian Banking & Finance Magazine Awards. The company rapidly grew as consumers became aware of its products and the competition heated up as Aussie grew its market share. In 2008 CBA acquired a 33% share of Aussie. As at end September 2012, Aussie had a loans portfolio of almost $44.9 billion. In 2012 Aussie acquired Mortgage aggregator nMB, which brought its total portfolio value to $53bn.
