Mint Equity named as finalist in 2017 Better Business Awards

Mint Equity has been named as a finalist in NSW for the 2017 Better Business Awards.

Now in its fourth year, the Better Business Awards is the mortgage and finance industry’s leading program for state-based performance – focused on mortgage brokers and the lenders and service providers that support them. 

The strong submissions from the finalists in the 2017 Better Business Awards, in partnership with The Adviser, are indicative of the high levels of professionalism and achievement across the Australian mortgage broking industry.

The awards not only acknowledge the brokers who are leading the charge – those with the most effective businesses, teams, marketing strategies and integrated offerings – but also the lenders and aggregator BDMs that are best servicing brokers’ evolving needs. Mint Equity has been recognised as a finalist in the category of Best Regional Office.

Mint Equity recently celebrated their win at the Connective Excellent Awards for Best Marketing NSW. Their nomination for the Better Business Awards was based on Mint Equity establishing their footprint on the Central Coast as a trusted mortgage broker.

Directors Zac and Leigh Peteh are delighted their family owned business is standing out from the crowd and receiving recognition. “We’ve increased our Residential Loan Book by 339% from FY15 to FY16. We’ve done this purely by increasing the number of repeat business and referrals and not by the acquisition of additional brokers, purchasing an existing book or big budget marketing. Our clients love what we’re doing and they keep coming back for more. It’s a good feeling and a great achievement,” Leigh Peteh, Director.

Momentum Media’s head of mortgages and real estate, Jim Hall, said the strength of the submissions received for 2017 made the process of selecting finalists incredibly difficult, and was a testament to what those in the mortgage industry achieved over FY2015-16.

“In a challenging and competitive market, mortgage brokers and those who support them have clearly shown that they can maintain a point of difference and build better businesses on a foundation of leadership, professionalism and a genuine passion for the work they do,” Mr Hall said.

“Being named a finalist for the 2017 Better Business Awards is a huge achievement. This year’s finalists deserve to be praised and recognised for their outstanding performance,” he said.

“On behalf of The Adviser, I’d like to congratulate each and every one of the finalists. Your hard work and dedication is driving excellence in an industry we’ve been supporting for 10 years, and will ensure Australian mortgage broking continues to thrive for many years to come.”

Participation in the Better Business Awards is open to all brokers and brokerages, regardless of whether they are aligned with a brokerage, aggregator, lender or industry association.

The event provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the top-performing brokers in each state, who may not always receive the recognition they deserve at a national level.
