Broker finalists revealed for Mortgage Business Awards

More than 40 individuals have been chosen as finalists for the broker and loan administrator awards at the inaugural Mortgage Business Awards.

Mortgage Business is proud to reveal the brokers and loan administrators who have qualified as finalists in the individual categories for the first-ever Mortgage Business Awards.

Run with the support of principal partner Resimac, the exciting new awards program recognises the leading lights who are helping propel the third-party residential mortgage industry in Australia.

This week, the 42 finalists of the five hotly contested individual categories have been released. 

These awards are:

  • Mortgage Broker of the Year — Metro
  • Mortgage Broker of the Year — Regional
  • New Broker of the Year
  • Innovator of the Year — Broker
  • Loan Administrator of the Year

A total of 42 people have been chosen as finalists for an individual Mortgage Business Award 2023 after judges reviewed and scored the video submissions.

With mortgage brokers facilitating almost 72 per cent of all new residential home loans between July and September 2022 (according to Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia data), there has never been a better time to recognise the hard work of brokers and their dedication to serving in the best interests of their clients.

Group award submissions closing soon!

As well as recognising brokers, the Mortgage Business Awards also champion the businesses leading the way in third-party mortgage distribution.

Mortgage Business is inviting aggregators, lenders, and technology providers in the third-party channel to submit an entry by sending their video submissions by Friday, 17 January 2023.

The group awards consider excellence in operations, technology, and innovation while highlighting and rewarding those who have delivered exceptional and consistent customer service and outcomes.

There are a total of 18 group award categories on offer including:

  • Aggregator of the Year
  • Brokerage of the Year 
  • Major Bank of the Year 
  • Mutual Bank of the Year 
  • Non-Bank of the Year 
  • Non-Major Bank of the Year
  • Service Provider of the Year

Entrants will be asked to provide a three-minute video submission for the award categories they wish to be considered for, answering the following four questions:

  • What steps have you taken to ensure operational excellence?
  • Provide an example of innovation in your business over the last 12 months and how this has helped your business grow.
  • How do you ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction?
  • What is the best example you can provide to demonstrate business growth in 2022?

Finalist submissions are delivered to the panel of judges, who assess each video submission against the criteria of each award category.

For lender, aggregator, and technology finalists, the video will make up 30 per cent of the weighting.

The remainder will be determined by their positioning in industry research and rankings, metrics from past broker award programs run by Mortgage Business’ parent company Momentum Media as well as the largest brokerage/aggregator and mortgage broker associations, the results of the Third-Party Lending Report, Broker Pulse surveys, Momentum Intelligence’s Aggregator of Choice Survey, and the Mortgage Technology survey.

The combined judging scores for each submission across each category are tabulated, with the highest-scoring submission deemed the winner.

Mortgage Business will reveal the rest of the finalists soon so keep an eye out for that!
