Smart­line’s Michael Slaugh­ter takes out busi­ness growth award

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

Work­ing in bank­ing over the years, Michael Slaugh­ter has seen first-hand the im­por­tance of choos­ing the right loan. Now the owner of the Smart­line fran­chise in Drouin, Michael is pas­sion­ate about help­ing peo­ple build per­sonal wealth by mak­ing good fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions.

“There’s no doubt that get­ting good qual­ity lend­ing ad­vice can have far reach­ing ram­i­fi­ca­tions for peo­ple’s long term fi­nan­cial health,” says Michael. “As a bro­ker, it’s very hum­bling to be able to play my part in help­ing peo­ple in our com­mu­nity achieve their fi­nan­cial dreams. It’s dif­fi­cult for bor­row­ers to keep fully abreast of what can be a fickle lend­ing mar­ket and make good lend­ing choices on their own.”

Michael’s ded­i­ca­tion and in­tegrity has seen him be­come an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar mort­gage ad­viser in the re­gion; his busi­ness has grown by over 60% in the past 12 months. Michael’s ef­forts were re­warded re­cently when he won the VIC Busi­ness Growth Award at the Smart­line Gala Awards din­ner.

“Among Smart­line’s 400 highly qual­i­fied mort­gage ad­vis­ers, there are some who are re­garded in the in­dus­try as some of the best in the busi­ness,” says Michael. “It is cer­tainly an hon­our to be amongst this group of high cal­i­bre pro­fes­sion­als.”

Ja­son Lee of Har­courts War­ragul has been named one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing real es­tate deal­mak­ers in a na­tional list of top per­form­ing es­tate agents.

Ja­son Lee has se­cured a po­si­tion in the Real Es­tate Busi­ness (REB) Deal­mak­ers 2018 rank­ing.

The list ranks real es­tate agents across Aus­tralia ac­cord­ing to a range of met­rics, in­clud­ing vol­ume, year-on-year growth and con­sis­tency of per­for­mance.

The REB Deal­mak­ers 2018 rank­ing is an ini­tia­tive of lead­ing in­dus­try re­source Real Es­tate Busi­ness, which is pro­duced by award­win­ning me­dia busi­ness Mo­men­tum Me­dia.

REB edi­tor Tim Neary said that there were some sur­prises in this year’s rank­ing and that stats re­veal some in­ter­est­ing new trends driven by the cur­rent chal­lenges across most of the coun­try’s mar­kets.

Mr Neary said the coun­try’s more ex­pe­ri­enced agents emerged as the top deal­mak­ers, main­tain­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary lev­els of per­for­mance de­spite the chal­lenges.

“It tells of a group of es­tab­lished agents sep­a­rat­ing them­selves from the pack by be­ing true busi­ness lead­ers in the in­dus­try,” said Mr Neary.

Mr Neary said this is the fore­most rank­ing of deal­mak­ers in Aus­tralia.

“Those who make the pres­ti­gious list are em­u­lated, sought-af­ter and held in the high­est es­teem, even by com­peti­tors who are chas­ing their tails.”

The data col­lected for the 2018 REB Deal­mak­ers rank­ing was ver­i­fied by a se­nior mem­ber of the agency or net­work, or the of­fice’s ac­coun­tant.

Call in and con­grat­u­late Ja­son on his achieve­ment at Har­courts War­ragul, 1/66 Smith Street, War­ragul or phone the deal­maker di­rect on 5622 3333.
