The new Glenelg store of Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans, has just been named a finalist in The Adviser Magazine’s 2014 Australian Broking Awards.
Aussie Glenelg is one of just four finalists in the Best New Office category, following its stellar year under new owner Jamie Lowden. Awarded Aussie’s top performing franchise in South Australia in 2013, Aussie Glenelg grew its loan book to $158.8 million in 2013 and is on track to lift its loan volume 32 per cent in 2014.
Mr Lowden says: “There is no doubt that green shoots are appearing in the Adelaide property market and we are reaping the benefits of this because of our unique service to first home buyers, next home buyers, investors and existing borrowers who are seeking a home loan health check while rates are so low.
“While we’re proud to have helped 215 people get residential mortgages last financial year, for me it’s not just about the numbers. I’m proud to be part of Glenelg’s business community and as such ensure that we give back to the community. We are the major sponsor of the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation’s Pink, Yellow and Blue Ball, and have donated $130,000 to date which is something we’re really proud of,” Lowden added.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Aussie, Mr John Symond AM, says: “I am delighted with the performance of Aussie Glenelg under Jamie’s leadership. We are confident about the future of South Australia for Aussie and have committed to opening more stores across the state and recruiting more mobile mortgage brokers so our people, like Jamie, can help others achieve their home ownership or investment goals.”
Located at 2-4 Brighton Road, Glenelg East, Aussie Glenelg is staffed by three fully MFAA accredited mortgage brokers. The store offers a huge selection of competitively priced home loans, insurance and personal loans, and guides customers on how to potentially save thousands of dollars and cut years off their loan terms.
The Australian Broking Awards are focussed on the third-party distribution sector, recognising the top performing individuals and groups across the mortgage and finance broking industry. The 2014 winners are set to be announced on 15 August 2014.
