The Vision

To be the leading mortgage brokerage in the industry.

The Mission

To operate ethically for the benefit of society and to delight our customers.

We call it the ‘HLE Way’

HLE changes the lives of everyday Australians one home loan at a time.

That’s because we recognise that a home loan itself is a vehicle to achieving long term goals.

For us, the true measure of happiness is what we can give back to the world.

Our Story

Since 2006, our team of ex-credit officers, property addicts and finance gurus have been punching way above their weight in the broking industry.

It all started in 2003, when 18-year-old Otto Dargan began his career as a mortgage broker.

Driven by a passion for customer service, he enjoyed working on the tougher loans that the banks, and even other brokers, didn’t want to deal with.

He quickly realised there was a major gap in the home loan market and he had a dream to help Australians who were being let down.

Since 2006, Otto has built HLE into a brokerage with a broad choice of lenders, a loan book over $1 billion and a team of brokers focused on being credit experts.

Our vision is to be widely recognised as the leading specialist mortgage broker in Australia

Who we are

For us, it’s not about the loan: it’s about helping people to achieve their financial goals.

This includes helping people to stop paying rent and buy their own home, build their investment portfolio, consolidate debt or simply providing free guidance on the home buying process.

We believe the world should be a better place because of our presence.

That’s why we also set up HLE Cares to fund projects that will bring the longest-lasting benefit to the people of Nepal, one of the least developed nations in the world.

Our main focus is on education and child welfare because we believe education enables people to create a better life for themselves.
