Hello from our national conference, this year at Alice Springs! Not having been to the Red Centre before I would have thought I was heading into oppressive heat. But no - it was 8 degrees at lunchtime yesterday and raining. Slightly warmer today but its a far cry from "warm". Incredible. The conference is something I look forward to every year.Mortgage Choice, and in particular Mortgage Choice at Gymea, have some really exciting changes this year. The biggest is our financial planning arm, Mortgage Choice Financial Planning which we now have up and running. The second is an incredible car finance offering. Theres nothing we can't do. We can help our clients with so much more than home loans now, which has definitely put a spring in the step of my team and I. It feels like a brand new business running with 14 years experience. As I'm quickly approaching my 40th birthday I think of it as being 21 again but knowing what I know now. It's a great opportunity.The new office is also going very well. We have also seen an increase in referral business - our clients are referring more and more of their friends and family to us which is always flattering.I have to keep this weeks entry short and sweet, so more from me next week. If there is anything at all you need please give us a call on 02 9525 4544 or you can email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org. We are more than happy to help. In fact, we would love to help.
