Aussie, in conjunction with RP Data, has launched a new referral program that will target 2,000 high-performing real estate agents nationally.
“Our program will provide a shot in the arm for real estate agencies and the residential property market, while helping our client’s get a great deal in the purchase and financing of their new home or investment property,” said executive chairman and founder of Aussie, John Symond, said.
According to Aussie, the partnership program has been designed to link buyers and sellers with real estate agents, with the aim being to assist people in finding the right home or apartment they are looking for in their local market.
RP Data has identified the high performing agents in each local market nationally, with Aussie’s mortgage brokers introducing qualified, pre-approved buyers to their local agent partner.
“According to RP Data, there are more homes listed for sale in Australia than ever before in history,” Mr Symond.
“Our aim is to develop a database of qualified buyers who can be introduced to the right property via our local agent partner. The program is designed to provide high level service to both the property buyer and the agent.”
Aussie said it’s in the process of contacting the top performing real estate agents in both city and regional areas over the next week to introduce the program and is expecting them to link up with their local mortgage broker to find and service property buyers and sellers.
“Our brokers are leading our clients, who now total more than 250,000, through the sometimes difficult process of accessing a great home loan and now we are extending this service to property search, in partnership with top quality agents”, added Mr Symond.
Aussie said its 750 mortgage brokers are now undertaking close to 10,000 appointments every month to help clients through the difficult task of finding the right home loan for their needs. The mortgage broker now has a loan book of more than $42 billion and more than 150 stores, with customers being serviced 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Aussie’s expanding mobile lending force.
Aussie’s mortgage brokers represent 18 home loan brands, including all four major banks, while also offering Aussie’s own suite of home loan products, with more than $1 billion worth of mortgages now settled each month.
