A young Melbourne-based broker has revealed why he decided to join a family-owned brokerage.
Twenty-seven-year-old Melbourne-based broker Daniel Koutzamanis, who was recently recognised as iSelect’s top broker after writing $40 million in loans in 2017, has now joined Loan Market as a senior broker.
The new recruit began his career in the financial services industry as a banker at Westpac before joining iSelect as a senior mortgage broker in 2014.
Mr Koutzamanis believes that joining the Loan Market team will help him achieve his aspirations for the future.
“I’m a very driven person. I felt like the values within Loan Market aligned with my own and would help put me in the right position to fulfill my goals for the future,” the senior broker said.
“There are so many opportunities when you join Loan Market — from the chance to work with Ray White offices to the personalised marketing and compliance assistance to the innovative technology platforms they provide.
“I was also attracted by the fact that Loan Market is a family-owned and led business. It really feels like the Loan Market team welcome you as part of the family and genuinely care about your success — that’s very rare.”
Loan Market Victoria state director Andrea McNaughton welcomed Mr Koutzamanis to the team, noting that she was impressed with the qualities that the new broker recruit brings to the table.
“When you meet Daniel, what stands out about him is his warmth and his positive attitude. It’s infectious and this has no doubt contributed to his success as a broker to date,” Ms McNaughton said.
“For someone so young, he has already achieved so much and has an excellent understanding of the industry. We’ll see him joining the ranks of the top brokers within Australia in no time.
“We are incredibly excited that Daniel has chosen to join the Loan Market family and look forward to supporting him as he grows his career and business with Loan Market.”
