Clarity Financial Group named top brokerage
By: Mortgage Professional Australia
"After an incredible year of brokers helping borrowers through one of the most challenging environments in a generation, MPA has expanded its Top 10 Brokerages list to celebrate even more brokers. This year, there are 25 brokerages in this prestigious list boasting astonishing figures," says Mortgage Professional Australia editor Rebecca Pike.
To find the Top Brokerages of 2021, MPA invited Australian brokerages to submit their figures for the period from the start of March 2020 to the end of February, 2021. Details were requested including the number of active brokers working at the brokerage, as well as total loan book volume and conversion rate. The result is a final ranking that is weighted across four areas: total loan book size, average settlements per loan writer, total settlements in the specified 12-month period, and conversion rate. Each brokerage was ranked in each of these areas and the rankings were then combined to produce a final tally.
For Kristy Edlund, owner-manager of Clarity Financial Group, which moved up from ninth position in the 2020 Top Brokerages list to fifth in 2021, receiving this recognition is "the cherry on top of a tasteless mud cake" after an extremely challenging 12 months. The brokerage increased its total loan book by 12% and settled 18% more loans than the previous year, even with two fewer loan writers.
Being based in Canberra, a city of around 400,000 people, makes this even more important for the team. "I think the primary emotion coming from this award is one of pride, in that we overcame, adapted, redesigned processes and essentially just knuckled down together to pull through the year," says Edlund.
