Leading mortgage broker Loan Market Group will open a new branch in one of New Zealand’s fastest growing regions.
The new Loan Market office will be located in the seaside town of Orewa on the North Auckland Peninsula.
Loan Market Group Executive Director John Kolenda said the group was seeking opportunities to expand its presence in New Zealand.
“Loan Market is well established in New Zealand and is highly regarded by lenders and has been recognised by winning a large number of mortgage broking industry awards,” Mr Kolenda said.
The new branch will be owned and operated by Trevor Tiplady, who has extensive experience in the New Zealand banking, finance and real estate industries.
Mr Tiplady has joined Loan Market following the withdrawal of Wizard Home Loans from New Zealand.
“We were approached by all the major aggregator groups in New Zealand and we were most impressed by Loan Market’s low key approach and their focus on providing the best home loans service for customers,” Mr Tiplady said.
Loan Market Group is among Australia’s top five mortgage broking firms and has more than 500 brokers in Australia and New Zealand and over 75 shopfronts in both countries.
