Brokerage doubles headcount due to lightning growth

A top brokerage has had to double its headcount this year due to the success of its “unique partnership approach” to doing business.

After cracking $1 billion in mortgages in only its second year of trading in 2014, the Sydney and Melbourne based firm, Shore Financial has now had to double its headcount this financial year. 

Alex Nochar, managing director and co-founder of Shore Financial says they have been forced to grow due to the success of their unique business structure.

“Shore Financial doubled their head count to 39 people this financial year,” he told Australian Broker.

“The backbone of our growth has been the increase in the number of new real estate partners looking to access our unique partnership approach. We focus on creating an experience that enhances the real estate professionals business.”

Alex Nochar founded Shore Financial in 2013 with Theo Chambers after working together at Oxygen Home Loans, owned by the McGrath real estate network. It was through Oxygen that they discovered a niche within real estate that they could tap into as brokers.

“We have a number of real estate partners that we have built over the last two years in Sydney and Melbourne. These Real Estate partners provide a base for our new brokers to develop their partnership skills and generate incremental sales,” Chambers told Australian Broker.

But the growth is not set to slow down, with the brokerage very recently securing a larger office space in Sydney, which will accommodate for their growth plans throughout 2015.
