Barry Parker has been around long enough to know that lending is a game of swings and roundabouts. If you stick to the fundamentals you’ll always come out on top
The past year has seen the peak of the housing market, with interest rates falling on owner-occupied loans and rising on investment loans. As the demands on brokers increase with all APRA- induced changes so does your workload.
At Nationalcorp we are all about providing our mortgage brokers and financial planners with the highest level of assistance. Our team is always available to supply you with personalised support.
Nationalcorp Home Loans offers our brokers access to services that can expand their business potential. Our Australian Capital group is an umbrella of companies that holds an Australian Financial Services Licence, credit licences and a full real estate licence. We act as a dealer group; we do not compete with our brokers or planners and never market to their clients unless we are doing it on their behalf.
Australian Capital group offers full access to Nationalcorp’s home loan range, aggregation, and the ability to upskill from either a financial planner to a mortgage broker or vice versa, with full back- end support.
Nationalcorp prides itself on our excellent service. It is our mission to make sure that our brokers are receiving the highest level of support from our team. This includes, personalised customer service, quick turnaround times, and during processing we ensure positions are held in the queue and immediately revisited if there is something missing from the file. In addition, we run regular marketing campaigns for our brokers and planners and provide most of the back-end processes that stop them from writing more business.
Nationalcorp Home Loans is one of the largest mortgage management companies in Australia today. Industry publications, such as The Adviser have consistently ranked us in the top 10 mortgage managers in the country. In operation since 1997, we are one of the longest serving mortgage managers. We have seen several credit squeezes, the most notable being the GFC, ultimately introducing legislation which has created great challenges for all of us. However, in the good times and the bad, we have kept our feet firmly planted on the ground and in the end it has made all of us stronger.
Nationalcorp has four main funding lines: Classic, Exclusive, Premium, and Platinum. Two of our product ranges are funded by ADIs and two by non-banks, which allows us to have great pricing and enough flexibility to cover just about any lending scenario.
Managing director Barry Parker has a passion for customer service both supporting the broker channel, the brokers’ customers, and for going the extra mile to help our customers. He says, “To compete in this market we have had to think outside the square”. In this day and age service is not always rated over price; we believe we have a good mix of both pricing and service and because we have four funding lines on one application we also offer choice.
All of the pieces of the puzzle: price, service, product and great support.
