Otto Dargan is the founder of Home Loan Experts, the leading specialist mortgage broking firm in Australia. As a young mortgage broker, he was named Australia’s Brightest Broker twice in 2011 & 2012 and in 2019 he made the coveted Mortgage Global 100 list which recognises industry leaders who’ve made a difference.

Otto’s passion for real estate, investing and financial services compelled him to create a business with a strong service focus that’s often lacking from the services offered by other brokers and the major banks.

Having achieved that, now he wants to help everyday Australians make smart property decisions. Over the last 16 years, he has learned what works and what doesn’t, where people make mistakes and how to get the best deal for yourself.

Otto and the Home Buyers Institute team are waiting to help you through your property buying journey.
