A South Coast mortgage broker has won the Regional Broker of the Year title at the MFAA NSW and ACT State Excellence awards for the third consecutive year.
Mortgage Choice Nowra franchisee and broker Paddy O’Sullivan (pictured) was recognised for his hard work throughout the past 12 months at the in-person awards night held at The Fullerton Hotel in Sydney on June 23.
“Winning for the third year in a row is an incredible achievement and one that makes me extremely proud as a regional broker,” O’Sullivan said.
“I enjoy running a small business in my hometown of Nowra and the award makes that opportunity even more worthwhile. It’s a lovely community and it’s great to be able to help people with their financing needs, whatever they may be.”

O’Sullivan increased his loan writing volume by 32% in 2021 which was recognised by the MFAA award judging panel.
In his acceptance speech, O’Sullivan (pictured receiving his award) credited his award win to his growing team and the support of the mortgage industry.
“I can’t compliment my wonderful team enough on the work they do every day to make our business successful,” he said.
“We expanded our loan and office administration team this year to realise the potential growth in our business and it has been one of the best decisions we have made. I also appreciate all the support from the people within our industry.”
