Australia’s largest mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans, has posted a record $5.5 billion in home loan settlements for the first quarter of the new financial year; 17 per cent above the same period last year.
The mortgage broker is also on track to increase its number of purpose-built Aussie stores across Australia from 175 to 200 and grow the number of mortgage brokers in the Group from 1,300 to 1,460 by July 2016.
Chief Executive Officer of Aussie, Mr James Symond, said “We have ambitious growth targets this financial year in retail, mobile and also in wholesale through nMB, but the 25 new Aussie stores will be key engine rooms for our growth.
“It’s not about bulk or hitting some magic figure; it’s about quality. Our focus is on attracting high calibre, dynamic and motivated business professionals so we can continue to cultivate greater broker and store productivity and grow the strong monthly settlement averages our Aussie stores are achieving which at the start of the financial year hit $6 million per month,” he said.
Ensuring greater customer access to the Aussie brand and service is the goal with the majority of new Aussie stores being targeted to open across outlying city suburbs of Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne, as well as regional areas of Queensland.
Three new stores are also slated to open in Western Australia, with a further two stores in Perth’s Mt Lawley and Cockburn officially opened this week.
“I encourage anyone looking to start a business with the backing of an industry-leading brand behind them to contact us about the many opportunities we have available across the Group,” he added.
