Melbourne, Australia, March 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Well-respected for his industry knowledge and experience, mortgage broker in Melbourne
, Stephen Zamykal celebrates an important achievement this month – 11 years as a business owner for Mortgage Choice, Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker.
Stephen takes great pride in the success his local franchise has achieved over the past decade and he is grateful for the support of his customers and team.
“Ten years in a successful business is an achievement I’m proud of. During that time I have helped thousands of Melbourne locals and visitors find a great loan, whether that means it has a competitive interest rate, low fees and/or is packed with a range of features,” said Stephen.
“If it weren’t for the backing of my 12-strong team, including my business partners Ashley Koenig and Cameron Price, I wouldn’t have achieved anywhere near as much in this amount of time.
“Helping customers’ reach their property goals is straightforward when you also have the support of friends and family – including the boys from our local Avondale Heights football team, most of whom have used our services and since referred others. Not to mention our referral partners, Schembri and Co Lawyers and financial planning firm Your Money Manager.”
In addition to commemorating Stephen’s first decade at Mortgage Choice, this year marks the tenth year the Melbourne based franchise business has been among the company’s elite ‘High Flyer’ category that recognises its top franchise owners nationally.
“It has been a win all-round for us this year. We maintained our High-Flyer status and also took home the 2010 National Multi Operator of the Year award at Mortgage Choice’s recent National Conference. This award was in recognition, in part, of our duty of care to our customers and getting the job done to the best of our ability,” said Stephen.
Always looking for ways to improve their customer service, Stephen and his team recently diversified their services. Today, they offer investment, commercial and personal loans, plus asset finance, leasing and insurance services. Stephen is confident that with a broader service offering, the business can better help borrowers achieve their financial goals.
“We’re excited to now offer customers a ‘one-stop-shop’ of financial solutions. Our aim is to make the process simple, straightforward and convenient, by offering information and guidance with great care. We want customers to be confident in their decision making – especially considering the bout of recent interest rate rises,” said Stephen.
“Whilst we continue to improve our business strategy, one critical element remains unchanged – that we do not charge customers for our residential loan services.”
Stephen and his team plan to host a series of free seminars discussing investment property tips, changes in lending criteria and insights into investment loan structuring.
“Our aim is for us and industry experts including the team at Keyhole Property Investments to share our knowledge and therefore empower property buyers. We hope to inspire locals to create their own wealth, showing them how property investment could work for them,” said Stephen.
“Over the long term, my plan is to work more on the business rather than in it while continuing to educate people on how to find financial freedom through successful property investment.
