Finding a professional Mortgage Broker is…..

Well when it often involves what will for most folk, be the most expensive purchase in their lifetime, then yes it can be a daunting task.

What say you get 16 different lenders together, and let them select the best candidates from around NZ.

Once selected, then have these finalists judged by a panel of four independent judges, importantly, from outside the industry, on various aspects of their business:

  • customer service and processes
  • professional advice
  • knowledge of the market and industry
  • client relationships
  • understanding of industry issues

Well this is the criteria and process the NZMBA go through each year when selecting their Broker of the Year.

This week I would like to introduce to you someone whom I have found over the years has all these qualities and more when it comes to assisting clients to source, apply, and secure a great mortgage.

His name is Mark Papps, and Mark is the 2008 Nelson Marlborough Mortgage Broker of the Year. This is the second time Mark has achieved this honour, he won this same award back in 2006.

The NZMBA Mortgage Broker of the Year Award rewards dedication, professionalism, innovation, creativity and excellence in mortgage broking. The winners most certainly represent excellence in their field of mortgage broking.

And as if this accolade wasn’t enough, Mark didn’t just win the Nelson Marlborough Award in 2008, he was voted No. 3 Broker in the whole country, for 2008 as well.

As the NZMBA says “… winners represent the best qualities of professional advisers.”

So I thought who better to share insight and commentary from a regional perspective.

From time to time, Mark will provide us with market updates in the finance sector and hopefully give us a better understanding of how the finance sector works.

I’m positive readers will be enlightened and informed by what he has to share.
