Partnership set to benefit new to industry brokers

The Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) is aiming to help inexperienced brokers via a new partnership with real estate data provider CoreLogic.

Through the partnership, all MFAA member brokers with two years or less experience are now eligible for a free three-month subscription to CoreLogic’s RP Data Professional platform.

The partnership is part of the MFAA’s efforts to help new to industry brokers better establish their presence in the industry and is aimed at helping them with aspects such as lead generation and client retention.

“It is important that new brokers have the right tools and support network to lay the foundations of a great business. This programme, which is part of the MFAA’s Business Builders series, allows new brokers to build relationships more effectively and be confident in their property conversations,” MFAA head of marketing and communications Stephen Hale said.

“We really encourage new to industry brokers to take advantage of this exclusive offer,” Hale said.

Along with helping brokers gain a better understanding of the property market, the RP Data Professional platform also contains features such as allowing brokers to receive alerts when a client lists their property for sale.

Frank Knez, CoreLogic general manager marketing, said the partnership would hopefully lead to key processes becoming everyday actions for inexperienced brokers.

“This is a great initiative to support and add value to newer brokers in the mortgage industry; helping them to embed effective acquisition and retention strategies as part of their everyday processes,” Knez said.
