Business Coach, Success and Broker

Ruan Burger - Bio
 
 
Kerry Packer once stated that Mortgage Brokers ‘are in the business of hopes and dreams’, Ruan Burger, former Managing Director of Time Home Loans, Brisbane, and Home Loans Etc, Gladstone, wishes he had created this line as it typified his business philosophy as a Mortgage Broker - helping people achieve The Great Aussie Dream of owning your own home.  
 
 
Ruan landed on Aussie shores in 2005 and quickly forged a career within the Mortgage Broking Industry climbing into Australia’s Top 100 Brokers in the first two years of business and retaining his position in the pack until the sale of Time Home Loans in 2021. He won numerous accolades during his career, and is ready to raise the bar again with Success&Broker.
 
 
“You do not need to reinvent the wheel, you just need to do it better than the competition. The wheel in this instance is service and I believe relationships are the key to providing a standout service. People deal with people; we are but a culmination of our experiences” - Ruan
 
 
Ruan has always aimed to raise the bar with visionary and adaptable businesses, with great purpose and support, delivering an outstanding and individualized service to clients - they say that you cannot be all things to all people, but does that mean you should not try?
 
 
After a long working week Ruan unwinds with his wife and children for quality family time… if it’s a really good day his wife allows him out for a game of golf!
