Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie has launched a major expansion plan to recruit brokers and other professionals to expand their broker and franchise network during and following the COVID-19 crisis.

Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie has launched a major expansion plan to recruit brokers and other professionals to expand their broker and franchise network during and following the COVID-19 crisis.

Brad Cramb, general manager of distribution at Aussie, says Aussie is looking to recruit 200 brokers and 80 more franchisees to their retail network in city and regional areas, for even stronger presence under an already established and thriving business model: “Franchisees are especially welcome in both city and regional centres as our store network is the key to our future.”

Applicants do not have to come directly from mortgage broking, and Aussie will be providing support and a start-up incentive** to each new successful store broker recruit during their first six months with Aussie.

“We see great opportunities for franchisees from both finance and non-finance backgrounds, who may have recently been made redundant or stood down, to choose a new professional path with a thriving business,” says Mr Cramb.

New recruits will have access to industry-leading training, support and mentoring to provide the kick-start they need to become thriving and long-term brokers with Aussie. After successful completion of the training program, they will be qualified for a Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking and could be on their way to a full Diploma in Mortgage Broking over a 12-month period.

In addition, Aussie is offering:

  • opportunities to suit a range of budgets
  • reduced franchise fees*
  • a competitive commission structure (with a special offer for the first 12 months)
  • Aussie store fit-out contribution to help new stores set up and open faster*
  • funding options available to help set up the new Aussie store
  • $6,000 to help new brokers kick-start their business**

Mr Cramb adds, “Aussie is proud of its track record in providing individuals the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications, especially at a time when many companies and brokers are simply trying to ride out the crisis. We’re delighted to provide the opportunity to people to gain new skills and qualifications, particularly during this time.”

For Khyati Shah, franchisee of Aussie Stanhope Gardens, her journey began in November 2019 after joining a training group. While the process was underway, she worked as an Aussie Mobile Broker, which helped her gain valuable experience working through the mortgage lending process, interacting with customers, and familiarising herself with the Aussie system.

“I always wanted to start my own business and started searching for opportunities in mortgage broking industry around July 2019. I enquired for an Aussie franchisee opportunity and had a several exciting meetings with people at Aussie.”

During her research, Khyati says, “I found Aussie to be a well-established and respected name within the mortgage broking industry. The process was explained to me and full support was assured throughout. That was it for me, I decided to be a part of Aussie family, and it’s one of the best moves I’ve made.”

For Khyati, the benefit of becoming an Aussie franchisee is about being “fully supported by each and every department in Aussie. Full guidance and directions are provided to ensure the process remains smooth and hassle-free for me. When I tell people I am from Aussie, there’s so much positive awareness from the community and customers.”

Reflecting on the key highlights of her journey to date, Khyati says there are a handful of moments that stand out from the day she got approved to become an Aussie franchisee through to another standout, when she submitted her first customer application and the customer’s loan was officially settled.

According to Khyati, “My advice to any new broker or franchisee owner would be, make sure you plan, focus and have a positive attitude. Aussie will look after you every step while you start and build your business. Also, it’s important to have supportive family and friends by your side.”

Similarly, Luke Abraham, franchisee of Aussie Capalaba, says his journey to becoming an Aussie franchisee was influenced by brand and trust: “Legacy is one of the reasons that I wanted to become a franchisee. I have the ability to help and impact people in a positive way to enhance their life… to become a key member of the community and a trusted source of knowledge and guidance. Aussie helped me establish the brand, the trust and relationships much faster than doing it alone.”

Luke says it’s the Aussie backing that makes all the difference to ensure he can succeed. “Aussie helps me keep my business on track – ensuring I am not a failed small-business statistic. Aussie support extends across all areas a small business would require, from retail business best practice, local area marketing, learning and development, and compliance. The support is tailored to my store’s needs, since there is never a one-size-fits-all approach.”

Reflecting on the key highlights of his journey to date, Luke says opening his Aussie store in December 2019 was a key milestone, but more satisfying is the feedback he received from one happy customer that told him one of the main reasons he selected Luke to help with a home loan is “because I took his initial call on a Sunday when no other broker did”.

Luke encourages other aspiring Aussie franchisee owners or brokers to get on board and shares his advice for success: “Embedding your local presence is key; meet, use and advocate neighbouring businesses,” he says.

It’s a great time to join Aussie and be part of an industry with a range of opportunities.
