Cheltenham Mortgage Broker Wins Another Award

Loan Market Cheltenham mortgage broker Josh Bartlett has been selected as the Newcomer of the Year at the 2013 Australian Broking Awards held last Friday at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Sydney.

The annual event which recognises brokers and businesses throughout Australia saw Mr Bartlett win his second national award this year as the best up-and-coming broker in the country.

Loan Market CEO Sam White said it was incredibly impressive how quickly Josh has become a successful mortgage broker and that he was deserving of all the accolades he has received in the past several months including Quality Young Gun of the Year and Best International Rookie at the Australian Mortgage Awards.

“Josh works with a number of Ray White agents, all of whom have nothing but high praise and positive feedback about how he is able to help clients that they refer to him. Josh has put in the time to understand how to work with lenders to find the right outcomes for his clients,” Mr White said.

Mr Bartlett said that after narrowly missing out on the same award last year, he used his last year of eligibility to motivate him to improve his skills as a broker and his relationships with his referral partners and customers.

“In the past year I developed an E-Broker app that helps me work closer with my referral partners so that we’re in constant communication and transparent about our numbers. This has been one of the keys to my success,” he said.

In his acceptance speech Mr Bartlett thanked his business partners, staff members and most importantly his wife Kristy and two kids for their support over the past year.

“I made a huge decision to sell a successful business I had a few years ago to become a mortgage broker. Without the support from my family I wouldn’t be where I am today, I can’t thank them and the team at Loan Market enough.”

Loan Market was also crowned as the major Brokerage of the Year - Non-Franchise, at the event. Loan Market CEO Sam White, who accepted the award on behalf of the company said he was extremely proud of what Loan Market accomplished over the past year and it’s network of brokers and corporate staff were catalysts for the company being awarded such a high accolade.
