After having been a branded broker for over a decade, South Australia-based broker Kristy de Poel took the leap to go independent. We find out how she did it.

Starting your own broking business can be a daunting process, but – for many brokers – the flexibility in being your own boss and building a valuable business is more than just reward.

In this episode of Elite Broker, we’re catching up with the director and broker at South Australia-based brokerage The Finance Room, Kristy de Poel, to find out how she’s been building her broking business with her husband Jamie Christie, after more than a decade being branded brokers. 

Tune in to find out:

  • Her journey to becoming her own boss
  • How she is preparing clients for rising interest rates
  • Why she thinks broking is an attractive career for women

And much more!
