Here is our List of the 10 Best Gold Coast Mortgage Brokers
For more than 16 years, Austin has been rising through the mortgage broking ranks; he began this journey at age 24 and quickly rose to the top of one of Australia’s largest broking firms.
Austin started his own firm, Zanda Wealth Mortgage Brokers, 9 years ago and since then Zanda’s broking presence has grown remarkably, with Austin being listed in the top 5 brokers in the state with Connective. This achievement reflects the results in numbers which in turn reflects client satisfaction.
Austin and Zanda Wealth Mortgage Brokers operate with a no-nonsense approach to their work. Their company ethos is constructed on the statement “we’re here to get the job done” and Austin is big on providing quality information to his clients.
“We don’t want to sugar-coat important details just to make it sound better to the client. Not only do we want to let the clients know what they can do; we also want to let them know what they can’t do” says the founder and CEO.
Austin is big on helping clients protect themselves; “we’re here to guide the client properly so they can reach what they want to achieve but also not get themselves into trouble”.
Chatting with Zanda’s clients reveals the depth of trust they feel to the company and to Austin himself; “we wouldn’t deal with anyone else” says Mark Dorsett.
“We couldn’t have done it without Austin and his team” says long-term clients Okke and Linda Velzeboer, who recently upsized their family home and needed bridging finance.
“I’ve been dealing with Austin for many years now, and with multiple transactions and wouldn’t be interested in dealing with anyone else” says long-term client and investor Michael Hamdan.
Clients Fiona and Sam Hurst recently purchased their first home – “when we first were looking to buy our home we had no idea how it all worked and Austin and his team made us feel comfortable with everything and helped us into our first home. Couldn’t be more grateful.”
Everyone needs a good mortgage broker; if you want an exemplary broker with a down-to-earth, honest approach, get in touch with Zanda Wealth Mortgage Brokers. They have been making a significant headway for themselves in the field – and with good reason.

He is pro-active, I know too well the benefits of being a team player. He works with your real estate agent, solicitor, accountant, builder and anyone else involved.
Between us, his wife and he has purchased a number of properties over the years. And throughout that time, they faced many challenges e.g. Being self-employed, over inflated interest rates or fees and charges, lack of a deposit requiring lenders mortgage insurance, a default on a credit file, lenders that were less than cooperative and very poor with communication.
Combine this with a passion for real estate, a hunger for investing in property, a little stubbornness and a low tolerance for poor customer service, his frustration built over time to the point where he decided he could do this better than most!
He embarked on a journey of educating himself further in real estate, investing, taxation requirements/reduction strategies, he secured industry accreditation and set about trying to change the game as they knew it!
On a personal note, he’s lucky enough to run Blackbox Finance with his wife Michelle.
