Susan Mason’s biggest business achievement is to have esablished a successful business based on ethics, honesty and customer service.

Ms Mason became the main income earner of her family when her husband had to stop working due to ill health.

She decided to pursue her dream of establishing a small business, relocating to Mandurah to begin this process, as she felt the area was under-serviced and had a huge growth potential. 

She set up her mortgage business from the ground up.

In 2006, Ms Mason was recognised for operating an exceptional small business when the Mortgage Industry Association of Australia (MIAA) named her its 2006 ‘operator of the year'. This was the first time the award was won by an individual.
