WA mortgage brokers win national awards

Two Western Australian mortgage and finance firms have taken out top prizes at the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia’s national awards over the weekend.

West Perth-based mortgage broker AFG took out the Retail and Wholesale Aggregator category for the fifth time in five years, while Homeloans Ltd won the Mortgage Manager of the Year category, for firms with 30 or more employees.

“The two winners from Western Australia demonstrated these qualities in a year that presented a number of significant regulatory and market challenges to the mortgage and finance sector,” MFAA chief executive Phil Naylor said.

“They have excelled despite the challenges they faced during the year.

AFG managing director Brett McKeon said the award was a wonderful endorsement of the company’s work.

“Even though we are the largest aggregator in Australia, we still have the focus and passion of a small team who really want to do the best for our members.

“I think our focus on technology caught the eye of the judges this year.

“We have invested over $50 million in technology helping our brokers dramatically improve customer retention and profitability, and enhancing their positioning as the market shifts to mobile computing.”
