Academy attendee signs $1m month

by Caroline Dann01 Aug 2012

A broker academy graduate has just signed her first $1m month, only months after starting training.

Loan Market's Michelle Murphy is one of the first brokers to attend Loan Market's two-year course, referring to herself as the "guinea pig."

"We are the first ones through, so it's all very exciting," she told Australian Broker Online.

Compliance issues are a key component, she said, which makes the course particularly pertinent.

"There are so many more regulations and rules brokers must comply with nowadays, and the course went through everything in such a practical way," she said.

Murphy had been working as a broker for several years in NSW before joining Loan Market's Broker Academy.

"I would urge all brokers, regardless of how long they've been in the industry, to take a course like this."

    I settled my first $1m about 5 months after I started broking, and I didn't need an academy to do it. This seems like an advertorial for Loan Market?

    The thing is that every broker out there is different. Sure many of you will have settled $1M quicker, but the key here is that training like this gives brokers the tools they need to write business. It's really positive to hear a story like this.

    Michelle seems really proud of her settlements. I say good on her!
