There are always opportunities to take on greater responsibility, and if you are successful, mentorship roles. Our rewards and incentives program allows us to acknowledge our employees’ achievements, so you will never feel as though you have not been recognised.
As a broker you need to be aware of the constant changes within the industry. At Home Loan Experts we are dedicated to promoting training and professional development to ensure that our brokers have current knowledge and are up to the industry’s standards. There are always opportunities for industry training days and Home Loan Experts is even willing to pay for you to attend training sessions that will help you in your role.

At the end of the day, Home Loan Experts wants its’ employees to be happy to come to work. Our employees are our biggest assets.
Here at the Home Loan Experts we understand that income is important. Because our brokers are paid on a commission only basis, it is entirely up to them how much they earn – the sky’s the limit. We supply you with leads every day and our clients are always high quality, so continuing business is never a problem. Brokers receive an initial upfront commission and then continue to receive trail for the loans they have settled.
Effectively, you will have as many leads as you can handle. We have around 50 – 100 qualified leads each month for every broker. Our leads come to us through our online stream and we get just as many phone enquiries. Despite this, Home Loan Experts will still guide you on how to build professional relationships to gain your own client and professional referrals.
Brokers have the ability to work their own hours, so it doesn’t matter whether you are a morning person or a night person. We understand that things may pop up during the day and this can’t be avoided. At Home Loan Experts we work around your personal life so you can have the best of both worlds.
