Australian Broker unveils winners of Fast Brokerages 2022

Australian Broker is proud to announce the winners of Fast Brokerages 2022, recognising the nation’s fastest growing mortgage broker businesses.

The second annual Fast Brokerages awards, which is sponsored by non-bank lender Liberty, celebrates the achievements of 52 brokerages across Australia, including 24 in Victoria, 19 in NSW, five in South Australia, two in Queensland, one in Western Australia and one in ACT.

Back in July, Australian Broker put a call out for brokerages to nominate for the awards, asking them to provide details of their revenue totals and settlement volumes for the 2020/21 and 20221/22 financial years, as well as any other growth milestones there were keen to highlight.

Fast Brokerages awards were given to brokerages that achieved more than 30% growth in combined revenue and settlement volume over that period. Also, 16 of the 52 brokerages were recognised as Fast Starters – having been in operation for three years or less.

Among the Fast Brokerage 2022 winners is Blue Crane Capital of Sydney. Managing director Chris Hall (pictured above left) and his team came in at No.6 in the top 10 brokerages for year-on-year loan settlement growth, notching up a 193.5% increase.

Liberty group manager sales John Mohnacheff said as strong advocates of the broker channel for 25 years, the non-bank was honoured to sponsor the Fast Brokerages 2022 special report.

“Brokerages are the lifeblood of the Australian mortgage industry and play a pivotal role in helping more Australians get – and stay – financial in all market climates,” Mohnacheff said. “We’re proud to play our part in acknowledging and recognising those who are holding the hands of prospective homeowners when they need it most.”
