Some of the industry’s top retail stores, loan writers and mobile brokers have won major national awards for their 2015 financial year performance at an awards night for the country’s largest mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans.
Held at the Crown Conference Centre, the gala awards evening was part of Aussie’s biennial sales conference ‘BE’, attended by 700 Aussie brokers, staff and franchisees, lenders and industry experts.
For the third consecutive year, Aussie Parramatta claimed the title of Aussie Retail Store of the Year, topping off a stellar 12 months for the franchise which settled a record $280 million in FY15.
After less than three years as a mortgage broker, Romeo Raad from Sydney’s South-West was awarded the Aussie Excellence Award for Mobile. This is the second accolade for Raad this year, who also won the MFAA NSW/ACT Achievement Award in March.

ANZ Bank was also awarded the Aussie Partnership Award, selected from detailed criteria across all facets of Aussie’s business model.
Chief Executive of Aussie, Mr James Symond, said “Rewarding and recognising top performance is something we’re focused on at Aussie, and it’s always a delight to present these prestigious awards to our top brokers, stores and partners.
“While some of these recipients have been in the industry many years, like the Le Quesne’s, Mark and Evelyn Burton from Liverpool and Mr Moon, some are much newer. Prospect only opened its doors in October 2013 yet it settled the fourth highest volume in FY15.
Romeo has only been with us around three years, and he’s now our top mobile broker.
“The results and success of these stores and brokers show what’s possible when you put a great brand, training, products and support together with motivated, engaged and passionate business professionals. These brokers are leading our national team in providing what I believe are the highest service standards of any mortgage broker in Australia, and the awards were all earned amid very hot competition within the market,” he concluded.
