A 220-strong franchise group with over 100,000 clients and a loan book of more than $10bn will be created when Smartline and Mortgage Force merge on 1 July.

    Best of luck to Joe S. & Neil P., two of the really nice guys in the industry. Am certain there are some juicy synergies to be gained and have no doubt your brokers will benefit from a stronger and more sustainable business.

    Two great companies, with great management and outstanding brokers. To steal a line from a great book this is a company that is about to go from good to great.

    With forces operating from both within and outside our Industry, it's heart warming to see a merger of two well known industry leaders known for exceptional service.

    This merger is vital in maintaining the dynanism and complexity within our industry. It bolsters all our futures and stands to represent a way forward. More importantly it heralds the survivability and viability of our total Industry beyond the big 4.

    Once again I congratulate Smartline (Joe Sirianni) and Mortgage Force (Neil Pinner) for forging a positive path from within. The synergy gained will in no doubt benefit all concerned and greatly enhance our collective futures.
