A real estate agency’s mortgage broking arm has appointed a former banker as its new managing director.

Stone Real Estate’s mortgage broking and financial services spin-off, Stone Money, has appointed former Century 21 Home Loans chief executive Ben Braysich as its managing director.

Stone Money has appointed Mr Braysich to lead the growth and strategy of the broking operations.

Mr Braysich has 20 years of experience in financial services, and was previously the national manager for global real estate organisation Century 21 Home Loans. Prior to that, he spent three years at Macquarie Bank and seven years at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, including five years within the private bank division.


His roles in CBA saw him win the 2016 NSW Private Banker of the Year Award and the 2016 National Private Banker of the Year Award.

Commenting on the appointment, Stone Real Estate CEO Peter Mumford said it was vital to partner with the right individual and team.

“Ben is a huge asset to the Stone Network with his proven track record in driving and leading successful broking businesses,” Mr Mumford said.

“For our franchisers, Stone Money will be a comprehensive offering in a property and lending market, which demands top-level resources and service.”

Stone Money has been integrated into 32 Stone Real Estate offices across NSW, Victoria and Queensland. The group plans to open another 15 offices Australia-wide in the next 12 months, and Stone Money will open alongside all of them.


Stone Money has also announced a partnership with aggregation firm Specialist Finance Group.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Stone who we see as an innovative and exciting brand to be associated with,” aggregation manager Blake Buchanan said.

“Our comparable vision for best customer outcomes, digital solutions and uncompromised professionalism has yielded early results with recruiting award-winning brokers to the Stone Money team, and we support the group looking to rapidly increase broker numbers to service the Stone network.”
