A top real estate agency and a mortgage aggregator are joining forces in a move touted to provide brokers with a new source of business leads.
Through a RE/MAX Australia and Vow Financial joint venture, finance brokers trading as Australian Property Finance (APF) work with the RE/MAX agents to write a full range of financial services for home buyers.
APF accesses a panel of 34 lenders, including major banks, second-tier lenders and smaller niche financiers.
The services span insurance, wealth creation, and leasing, and finance brokers will advise new and refinancing borrowers on commercial and residential options.
APF chief executive Nathan Swain says joining APF means a broker is backed by Vow rather than acting independently, and they are affiliated with RE/MAX, a global real estate company.
“These two factors are valued by finance brokers seeking security and longevity.
“The joint venture will provide brokers with a new source of business leads, and 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.”
RE/MAX has offices in 90 countries and is the top real estate agency business in the world based on volume of sales.
