Four Aussie Home Loans’ stores in Tasmania have together settled a record 1,100 home loans worth $300 million during the 2015 financial year.
With growth of up to 24 per cent on last year, Aussie Burnie, Kingston, Launceston and Moonah together with their 14 accredited mortgage brokers are even rivalling their counterparts in the hot Eastern Seaboard markets of Sydney and Melbourne.
This success contributed to the record $16.8 billion in home loan settlements achieved by Aussie through its 174 stores and 500-plus network of mobile mortgage brokers last financial year.
Chief Executive Officer of Aussie, Mr James Symond, said “Compared with Aussie’s footprint across the rest of the country, Tassie has a far smaller number of stores however they are excelling in terms of the number of home loans they’re settling.
“Even when you compare their results to our stores in the thriving markets of Sydney and Melbourne they still hold their ground. Launceston and Moonah settled the fourth and sixth highest number of home loans respectively out of any Aussie store anywhere in the country; now that’s impressive,” he said.
“We are thrilled with Tasmania’s results with our team punching well above their weight. Our market share in Tasmania is much greater than any other state or territory around Australia and the great news is that there’s plenty more room for growth.
“We are actively looking to expand our team in Tassie so we can give the other states and territories an even bigger run for their money as well as provide more people and communities with Aussie’s award-winning, free home loan advisory service,” he added.
