Michael Garland has recently relocated to Cairns, making him APF’s most northerly-based finance broker.
Mr Garland brings to the role 20 years’ experience in both state and national positions and will complete a Master of Marketing at the end of this year.
“I’ve chosen this new professional path because the role within APF allows me to focus more on educating and empowering people rather than just finding the best loan and moving on to the next client,” Mr Garland said.
“I am particularly passionate about working with first timers – be that borrowers, property buyers, sellers or investors – and providing them with knowledge and an experience that will take them forward with their future property decisions.”
Mr Garland will be backed by mortgage aggregator Vow Financial.
APF chief executive Nathan Swain said the appointment of Mr Garland brings the group to 26 brokers and puts them on target to reach 35 by the end of the year.
