Australian Finance Group (AFG), the largest independent mortgage broking group in Australia and First National Real Estate, the largest independent real estate network, have joined forces to deliver a new alternative in finance and home lending.
The partnership means First National Real Estate agents will be able to offer customers the support of experienced, accredited local mortgage brokers in a way that will make the buying process as smooth as possible.
‘Access to a professional mortgage aggregation service is crucial for all property investors, first home buyers and families’ said First National Real Estate chief executive Ray Ellis.
‘The complexity of mortgage products and their ever changing nature means that only brokers with a broad panel of lending options can provide balanced advice. Even the most seasoned property investor would find it difficult to stay on top of the ever-changing range of products available.
‘Our goal is to ensure that buyers dealing with First National agents are given prompt access to comprehensive advice and are able to quickly gain approval so they can purchase with a minimum of delay and fuss’ said Mr Ellis.
Each month, Australian Finance Group (AFG) helps thousands of families move into homes using its network of 2300 brokers around Australia. With access to more than 800 home loans from 34 of Australia’s lenders, AFG offers the largest range of mortgage products.
In addition, AFG will provide First National Real Estate with administration, technology systems software, education, training, as well as communications and marketing support. In turn, First National Real Estate agents will refer customers to local AFG brokers for efficient, expeditious service, at no charge to the customer.
‘To be selected as an alliance partner by a business with such an extensive network of real estate agencies is a strong endorsement of our product offering’ said AFG general manager Mark Hewitt.
‘We are looking forward to the opportunity of helping more families into homes’
