The Parramatta store of Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans, is now established as one of Australia’s best mortgage brokers – named as a finalist in The Adviser Magazine’s 2014 Australian Broking Awards.
Aussie Parramatta is one of just four finalists in the Best Office Franchise category, following its stellar year under owners and brothers Ross and Scott Le Quesne. Named Aussie’s top franchise in 2013 and on track to take the title again in 2014, Aussie Parramatta helped 425 people get a residential mortgage in 2013, a loan volume of $150 million. In 2014 this figure increased to 622 people, a loan volume of $200 million, representing an increase of over 33 per cent.
Ross Le Quesne says: “It’s fantastic to be selected as a finalist in these prestigious industry awards. We are reaping the benefits of our hard work and expertise in dealing with almost any financial challenge or opportunity faced by our customers in the Parramatta region.
“We are seeing strong activity this year from first home buyers, next home buyers, investors and existing borrowers seeking a home loan health check while rates are so low. We also specialise in helping customers looking to navigate property investment through their self-managed superannuation funds,” he added.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Aussie, Mr John Symond, said “I am delighted with the performance of Aussie Parramatta under the leadership of Ross and Scott. They are innovative, always striving to improve their business and as such they lead the way in best practice for not just Aussie but the whole industry.
“The Parramatta community is where Aussie first started way back in 1994, so I’m thrilled to see our store there continue to go from strength to strength,” said Mr Symond.
With more than 200 years’ combined experience in mortgage broking, financial services, real estate, business and administration, the Aussie Parramatta team helps customers through the process of finding and applying for mortgages from Aussie’s panel of up to 19 lenders, including the big banks, and hundreds of different loans. The team also specialises in niche areas of the mortgage market, namely the investor space and Self-Managed Super Funds.
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.
