About John Halloran
Why did you become a business owner running a mortgage broking business?
In my time working as an accountant and financial planner, I found that my clients were constantly dissatisfied with the level of service they were receiving from their bank manager. A home is one of the biggest and most important transactions we undertake in life.
I decided during this time that if I wanted to help people financially, the single most important point of focus for making a difference to lives would be to make sure people have best loan for their home and their investment properties.
Why should a potential property buyer use a mortgage broker?
Investing in property or buying a home is a big deal. So is choosing the right home loan and lender. Whether your application is routine or complex you want someone who is always in your corner, available to answer all your questions and who is transparent and open in their dealings with you
What type of business do you want to be known as an expert in?
Loan Market is one of Australia’s most trusted names and working with myself means choosing and buying a home has never been easier. Regardless of where you are purchasing a home, I can help you with all aspects of your home loan, from pre-approval to refinancing.
I largely service the following suburbs: Brisbane CBD, South Brisbane, Kangaroo Point, Woolloongabba, East Brisbane, Norman Park, Greenslopes, Carindale, Cannon Hill. But I have clients as far north as Ayr and as far south as Armidale and am happy to talk to you no matter where you live.
I have built up relationships with agents, solicitors, financial planners, accountants and conveyancers within the area and have a reputation among my network for being diligent, approachable and thorough.
I help clients looking for loans for first home, construction of a property or renovation, refinancing, investment properties, car and vehicle loans.
Why should a client trust you?
I care deeply about each client’s reasons for borrowing and their personal circumstances. From pre-qualification for first home buyers to refinancing for an investment property, my job is to find you the right rate for your situation and to make the process as streamlined as possible. I will take the time to understand, listen, research and then present the best option.
First and foremost I really enjoy providing people with optimised solutions. While I have a background in accountancy my move into the home loan sector has greatly increased my opportunity to personally engage with clients. Working in Eastern Brisbane with Loan Market has allowed me to further expand my customer base and ability to assist more and more people.
What are the characteristics and attributes you look for in people you deal with?
My success has been built on my strong ties to the local community and a commitment to developing lasting and meaningful relationships. I relish a challenge. I’m competitive by nature – I have represented Australia abroad in both the sporting and music fields – and so I’m just the kind of home loan lender you need when the going gets tough.
I play competitive ice hockey on a regular basis and still occasionally go on tour. I enjoy optimising my life, health, physical ability, and leisure. In a past life I was a musician, ran a record label, organised festivals and managed a number of international music tours. I love all things arts, digital and multimedia, spending time with my family and helping out in the community where I can.
'Big shout out and thank to John Halloran for all his hard work during our recent home purchase. He was thorough, conscientious and informed.

We really appreciated it John, and we wish you all the best for the continued success of your business.'
