A major real estate franchise has unveiled bold growth plans for its home loans division, going on a major recruitment drive and appointing a new CEO.
As part of the group’s growth plans, CENTURY 21, one of Australia’s largest real estate franchises, has appointed James Green as CEO Australia and New Zealand of CENTURY 21 Home Loans
Mr Green comes to CENTURY 21 after almost four years as general manager of Oxygen Home Loans, which formed part of the McGrath Estate Agents network.
Mr Green will officially commence his position on January 14 and says he is excited about growing the business and recruiting more brokers.
“We have an opportunity to significantly increase our distribution base. CENTURY 21 has over 300 offices, but currently only has 17 brokers. We really need to ramp that up because we’re under-servicing our lead base,” he told The Adviser.
CENTURY 21 Home Loans will be recruiting 20 brokers in New South Wales, and aims to grow overall broker numbers to 100.
Mr Green, who is now a part-owner of the business, said AFG and Charles Tarbey, CENTURY 21's CEO Australasia, were instrumental in the deal coming together.
“Charles Tarbey and AFG were talking about how to take the CENTURY 21 business to the next level with Macquarie Bank and they saw what a great success we were having over at McGrath and Oxygen and they wanted to learn more about it.
“I loved my job at McGrath, but I’m really excited about the new position,” Mr Green said.
