The property market should pick up after the election, Aussie’s James Symond has claimed.
Speaking to Real Estate Business' sister publicationThe Adviser, Mr Symond said he expects the market to “pick up significantly” after the federal election later this year.
“We are confident that, after the election, the marketplace will get better,” he said.
“We are preparing ourselves for strong growth and another stellar year, both across our retail and wholesale arm.”
Mr Symond went on to say that he was hopeful Aussie’s newest recruit – chief executive officer Ian Corfield – would help to bring new life to the company.
“Ian is a good person and should be an excellent leader in that position. Ian has many years of experience and I think he will work well with the team. He has a lot of knowledge about the wider banking sector and I think we can take a lot from that.”
