Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans, plans to significantly boost its presence in Queensland following strong growth in the sunshine state during the 2018 financial year.
Aussie’s FY18 data revealed the mortgage broker’s Queensland market share grew year-on-year with the value of loans settled totalling $3.6 billion.
Chief Executive of Aussie, Mr James Symond, said “We are building momentum in Queensland especially with first home buyers and upgraders. In a shifting market savvy borrowers are looking for expert guidance on their home loans, and we’re seeing that come through in a nice uplift in market share.
“Our growth plans are off to a solid start and we have already opened two new stores in FY19 in Burpengary and Clifford Gardens. We have another new store opening soon in Flagstone, which is an especially exciting opportunity where we will be piloting a new form of market representation to capture the rapid residential and commercial growth in the area,” added Symond.
Aussie Flagstone will initially open in a display village and will relocate to a retail premises once the commercial infrastructure in the area is developed, and a retail site becomes available.
Queensland’s strong performance was part of Aussie’s record national result for the 2018 financial year which saw Aussie’s more than 1,000 mortgage brokers settle a monthly average of over $1.5 billion and set several new records for the brokerage, including achieving Aussie’s highest settlement year ever worth in excess of $18 billion and multiple record months in its franchise channel.
Aussie has a range of metro and regional franchise territories now available across Queensland, and is also recruiting mortgage brokers for its successful mobile channel.
