Could mortgage broking be your new business?

- November 25, 2018 3 MIN READ

Shaking up the home loan market since 1992, Aussie has become Australia’s number one mortgage broker brand in a multi-billion dollar industry*. Mortgage broking can give you a business with flexibility and financial independence, is it for you?

What does a mortgage broker actually do?

A big misconception is that mortgage broking is all about numbers, rates and calculators.  The reality is it’s about people, relationships, empathy and conversations.

Put simply, a mortgage broker facilitates the transaction between the borrower and the lender. A good mortgage broker takes the time to listen to the needs and circumstances of the borrower, match them with the right home loan, and manage the application process for them.

Mortgage brokers earn an income on the settlement of a loan and, depending on the lender, may also receive trail commission.

What you need to be successful

Passion. You don’t need a degree, but you do need to work hard. The first year, like in any new business, can be the most challenging.  You’ll soon discover that putting hard work in during the short term, can pay off for you financially in the long term.

People skills. Successful brokers enjoy connecting with their local community, and make the effort to connect with all types of people to help them with one of life’s biggest purchases.

Patience. Like anything worthwhile, success takes time. Aussie gives you the support and knowledge you need to get started and works with you so you can see sustainable and long-term financial rewards from your hard work.

Choose your own adventure

With a range of options available, mortgage broking can give you the freedom to create a positive work/ life balance.

Mobile. Work from anywhere and service your clients as a mobile broker.

Store. Join an existing store as a store broker where the customers come to you.

Franchise. Run your own scalable and saleable business.
