by Todd Stevens2 minute read
Michael Coombes, Coombes Property Group

With more than 30 years in the finance sector and a broking career which began in 1987, WA-based SME broker Michael Coombes has built a client base that continues to return to him year on year.  

In this episode of Elite Broker, host Annie Kane is joined by the leading Perth broker, who shares how the only thing that has been consistent in his business has been his client base. He discusses the importance of being able to adapt, change and do things differently and shares how he is educating politicians on the importance of the broker cause.

You will also find out:

  • How he has built a strong client base without advertising his business
  • His advice for brokers wishing to try their hand at SME finance
  • How he is achieving favourable outcomes when approaching politicians to discuss broking

And plenty more!
