In March 2020 I had just re-entered Mortgage Broking after close to 20 years in corporate roles in Banking and Aggregation. This experience had exposed me to a range of broking businesses and journeys; I was able to distil out the things I knew were important to building a successful business and career in the modern broking world.
One element that stood out above all was partnering with professionals who could help me grow to the level I knew I wanted to be at. This meant working with people who could educate, guide, support and push me to accelerate my learning curve. With this in mind it was an easy choice to join Ruan, and the team at Time.
During the 12 months that we worked together, I was able to observe first-hand what it takes to run a successful business, while writing consistent volume. I learned about exceptional customer service, work ethic, professional standards and developed a feeling of what it is like to be on a winning team. Ruan became a colleague, mentor, peer and friend throughout this time, and I know I would not be at the point I am in my business without this experience. After just over 12 months out on my own, I am on track to lodge over $70M in new loans this calendar year. If I were to share any advice to a broker who wanted to go to the next level, it would be to engage an experienced, successful professional, like Ruan, to work in and on your business.
