For 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 top-tier broking firms.

Austin started his own firm, Zanda Wealth Mortgage Brokers, 9 years ago and since then Zanda’s broking presence has grown substantially, with Austin being listed in the top 5 brokers in the state with Connective. This achievement mirrors 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 based on the statement “we’re here to get the job done” and Austin is big on providing quality knowledge to his clients.

“We don’t want to sugar-coat information 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 isn’t possible” says the founder and CEO.

Austin is big on helping clients protect themselves; “we’re here to guide the client properly so they can achieve what they want to achieve but also not get themselves into a financial pickle”.

Discussions with Zanda’s clients reveals the depth of loyalty 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 a superb broker with a down-to-earth, honest approach, get in touch with Zanda Wealth Mortgage Brokers. They have been creating a significant space for themselves in the field – and with good reason.
