Smartline Blackwood has been recognised as a leading mortgage business at Australia’s mortgage and finance industry awards, hosted by the MFAA on Friday night.
The South Australian based brokerage, headed up by Cathy Anderson, took out the award for Mortgage Broking Business of the Year (with two to five loan writers) as well as Operator of the Year – which acknowledges the stand-out business of the year.
MFAA CEO Phil Naylor said the award represented the “best of the best” and that the association was proud to present the award to Smartline Blackwood for its “outstanding work and dedication”.
Other winners on the night included the Commonwealth Bank, which was awarded Lender of the Year, and Tracie Palmer of LJ Hooker Financial Services in North Brisbane, who landed Mortgage Broker of the Year.
A large number of industry delegates turned out to recognise leading businesses despite challenging market conditions.
“Given the current state of the market we were initially concerned about interest in the awards this year but we were pleasantly surprised with the very strong number of submissions we received, as well as the 500 plus crowd the awards drew” Mr Naylor told Mortgage Business.
Mr Naylor also commented that the mood among delegates was surprisingly upbeat which was refreshing considering the challenging market conditions.COMMENT HERE
