In the past 12 months, Queensland-based brokerage Borro has gone from a team of two to a team of seven. We find out how the brokerage has been rapidly growing and its process for hiring team members that fit.

In this episode of Elite Broker, recorded live at the Better Business Summit in Brisbane, host Annie Kane catches up with banker-turned-broker Cara Giovinazzo, broker and founder of Borro, to find out how she’s been rapidly escalating her broking business and the lessons she’s learned over her four years of broking.

Tune in to find out:

- How her attitude to broking has changed over time
- Her thoughts on channel differentials in turnaround times
- Her process for hiring new recruits
And much more!
