Aussie has been named Australia’s Major Brokerage of the Year – Franchise at The Adviser Magazine’s 2014 Australian Broking Awards held in Sydney today.
Australia’s leading mortgage broker also took the titles of Best Training and Education and Best Office - Franchise with its Parramatta store.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Aussie, Mr John Symond AM, says: "It’s always pleasing for the team to be recognised for the hard work they put in. Whether it’s our brokers helping people to achieve their property ownership goals or our head office staff providing business, marketing and sales coaching and support, it’s a whole team effort.
Mr Symond added “We’re experiencing strong settlement and portfolio growth across the business every year, and our retail channel is going from strength to strength. It’s hard to believe this channel didn’t even exist eight years ago. We’ve all worked hard to grow Aussie’s retail offering and now have more than 160 stores around the country, with several more opening soon.
“Aussie has always prided itself on developing and investing in its people, and our Training & Education award is testament to this. We’re hands on from day one supporting our brokers because if they don’t succeed, we don’t succeed. We do what we can to set our people up so they can grow and run successful businesses.
“Ross and Scott Le Quesne and the Aussie Parramatta team do an outstanding job so I’m pleased they’ve received this industry recognition. Ross and Scott not only lead their team at Parramatta but generously share their time, skills and experience to help our other franchisees improve their businesses,” added Mr Symond.
The Australian Broking Awards have a stringent judging process which includes a substantial written submission and provision of business metrics.
Aussie is always looking for new and experienced brokers to join its retail and mobile teams in city and regional areas around the country, including other branded outlets. For more information visit www.aussie.com.au/careers.
