Broker group joins aggregator's exclusive CEO club

by Julia Corderoy26 Feb 2016
National broker group Australian Property Finance (APF) has been initiated into a major aggregator’s exclusive CEO club. 

This month Vow Financial announced APF as a Pinnacle CEO Club member, which comprises the top broker groups in the finance network in terms of settlements.

According to APF’s CEO Nathan Swain, APF recorded a 350% growth in volume settled. 

“APF is now recognised in an elite group of the top 20 broker partner groups, and there are well over 1000 brokers in Vow,” Swain said.

“We have achieved this inside two and a half years in the industry; and our first year was establishing building blocks, so it’s more like 18 months.

“We’ve arrive here as a mature finance brokerage through targeted recruitment of the best people and making the best-matched relationships with RE/MAX business owners.”

APF has an exclusive partnership with real estate network, RE/MAX Australia. More than a third (38%) of APF business comes through the RE/MAX network.

“Working collaboratively, the partnership between finance and real estate – between finance brokers and sales agents – means an expanded quality service for consumers,” Swain said.

“The real estate customer is best served by people working together with knowledge of the property itself, the property market and the real estate and finance industries they specialise in and the joint venture provide brokers and real estate agents with valuable leads and database growth.

“These awards are outstanding results for our business particularly given our infancy, and we are well-positioned to continue our growth in broker numbers.”
