Ability to grow with the company
Home Loan Experts is constantly growing. With new and exciting roles on the horizon we are always looking for fresh up-and-comers. There are always opportunities to take on greater responsibility and, if you are successful, even 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.
How have our support staff grown?
Our fantastic career development opportunities mean there is always room to grow and take on new and challenging roles. Many of our staff began working for us in junior roles, and now they not only have a career path and a clear direction but a bright future ahead of them as well. Here are just some of our employee success stories.
Andrea began working at Home Loan Experts in late 2011 after graduating from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts.
Initially her role was to provide administrative support to brokers, as well as distributing and monitoring our online enquiries.
Andrea studied while she worked and quickly gained her Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking.
As Andrea progressed to a management role, she trained new staff in managing online content and continued to work closely with brokers, support staff, HR and the Director.
She has written several process documents which have streamlined the process of training new staff and are now integral to our operations.
As the managing director’s assistant manager, Andrea is instrumental in running the business’s day to day operations.
Glaiza de Leon
Human Resources Manager
Glaiza began working at Home Loan Experts in 2009.
She started her career with us in an administrative position, assisting the brokers and continually training other junior support staff.
In 2011, Glaiza advanced to managing our human resources department whilst working on her diploma in Human Resource Management.
Now Glaiza manages our broker team and is an indispensable part of our business.
During her time working for us, Glaiza has stretched herself and reached for more and more challenging goals.
She has implemented several new procedures and documented them in our ever-expanding Operations Manual, as well as designing and implementing many of our HR policies.
She has not only grown professionally but but has been instrumental in shaping the company.
No office politics or corporate nonsense
You won’t be swallowed up by a corporate machine or feel lost in the crowd. We know that building good relationships with co-workers means that day to day tasks can be completed efficiently.
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.
Be part of a progressive company
We have implemented new IT systems and have the latest technology to ensure our employees have all the resources they need to complete their job efficiently.
Our goal is to be the pioneer in our industry; we’re always trying new things and striving to improve.
Friendly office environment
Our staff are friendly and supportive so you never feel like you can’t speak to your co-workers for advice. Home Loan Experts has a mentor program, ensuring new mortgage brokers receive guidance from our senior brokers.
This means that you always have someone to brainstorm with when finding the right solution for a customer.
Continual training and professional development
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 and above the industry 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. We believe that having the right training and knowledge is essential so our customers receive an outstanding level of service.
Unlimited earning potential
We understand that income is important. Because our brokers are paid commission, 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.
Plenty of customers to talk to
Effectively, you will have as many leads as you can handle. We have around 50 to 100 qualified leads each month for every broker. Our leads come to us through our past customers, professional referrers, seminars and website.
We will also guide you on how to build professional relationships to gain your own clients.
Freedom to work your own hours
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.
Our fantastic reputation in the industry
