Melbourne’s Inner West to benefit from new broking franchise
Mortgage Choice is proud to launch a new franchise covering Melbourne’s Inner West area.
The franchise is run by local businessman and financial services stalwart Garry Megalogenis.
Garry joins the branded brokerage armed with more than 19 years’ experience in financial services.
Having previously worked for some of Australia’s leading lenders, Garry said he decided to join Mortgage Choice because mortgage broking was a perfect fit for his business skills.
“While I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in banking and finance, I decided to move into mortgage broking because I wanted to be able to offer clients more options and better advice while helping them to fulfill their property and finance dreams,” he said.
By his own admission, Garry, who has an MBA, a Cert IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking and speaks fluent Greek, loves being able to help all Australians live the life they want, which is why he decided to take the leap and open his own Mortgage Choice franchise.
“I want to be able to help Australians achieve their dreams whether that is to start a new business, build on an existing business, develop property, or purchase their own home,” he said.
“I look forward to helping potential borrowers in my local area find the right mortgage product for their current and future needs.”
Garry said his strategy for success is built around a ‘client for life’ philosophy.
“Family and friends thought it was the perfect profession for me as it combines my love of real estate, my knowledge of business and finance, and my experience in customer service. I will always put the customer first,” he said.
“I aim to grow the business by helping people in the region achieve their goals as quickly and as easily as possible. I want to provide them a level of service that exceeds their expectations so they will be happy to refer me to family and friends.”
