    Good to see some Lawyers having to put their hand in their pocket for a change.

    If he can afford to borrow 57 Million from his company it tells me that the Aussie Consultants are losing too much in commission splits to the company.

    I'd feel a bit silly if i were working (as a broker) to make this guy richer. Just sayin

    I totally agree all the Aussie agents should be considering their commission split in light of this.

    This is nuts....why would someone like Aussie John (founder of Mortgage Broking as we know it today) take home loan advice from a solicitor & not say a F/Planner or Tax Advisor or other BIg Business Specialist?? You think HE would have known better! Perhaps he shoudl have asked one of the other local high rollers how they did it. Whislt there would be much more to the story. I think Aussie John was just able to afford a much better Legal Litigator & good would the Aussie Brokers be feeling right now??
