A mortgage brokerage operating out of Sydney and Melbourne has partnered with a NSW-based real estate firm.
Starr Partners, a real estate franchise with 31 offices across NSW, has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with mortgage brokerage Shore Financial to enable it to offer “competitive home loans to clients”.
The group has said that the partnership will allow its real estate agents to provide clients with a broader service by allowing them to refer clients to Shore Financial’s broker network.
Following the announcement, CEO of Starr Partners Douglas Driscoll said: “Residential mortgage broking services [are] another value-added offering we’ve integrated this year to improve the customer journey for our clients — from introducing new technologies to enhance their listings to now meeting all of their financial real estate needs.
“After a year researching the market to find the best fit for third-party home loan referrals, Shore Financial was a clear standout.
“It’s their dedication and commitment to negotiating competitive rates and offering the best financial advice to meet the needs of their customers, and their experience working with real estate industry professionals, that sets them apart as the leading mortgage broking service.”
CEO of Shore Financial Theo Chambers added that the partnership would extend the brokerage’s presence in NSW.
“We love working with bigger real estate networks, and Starr Partners is a respected brand, with a strong presence in key markets in Sydney and the Hunter Region.
“We’ve been liaising with a few of their offices but saw the opportunity to extend the partnership across the full agency network.”
The news follows digital real estate platform buyMyplace’s announcement in August regarding its partnership with Choice Aggregation Services, in a move designed to provide users with access to mortgage services.
