Broker named as state’s rising star
A COFFS Harbour local has been recognised as one of the best mortgage brokers in New South Wales, claiming the NSW Rising Star of the Year award at Mortgage Choice's national conference in Adelaide.
John Duerinckx, who joined Mortgage Choice in 2012, beat other hopefuls from across the state to be named the NSW Rising Star of the Year.
This award category acknowledges the efforts of outstanding new franchisees.
To be eligible for this award, franchisees must have owned their franchise for longer than 12 months but less than two years.
Speaking about the award, Mr Duerinckx said he was humbled to be recognised at Mortgage Choice's annual awards program.
"I am thrilled to have been awarded this top honour, especially given the multitude of successful Mortgage Choice franchisees that were also in the running for the Rising Star category," Mr Duerinckx said.
"Of course, none of it would have been possible without the ongoing support from my family, friends and local community.
"I love being able to help Australians achieve their dream of home ownership and I look forward to helping more people achieve their dreams for many years to come."
Mortgage Choice chief executive officer Michael Russell said Mr Duerinckx was an individual who had worked extremely hard year in, year out and thoroughly deserved to be rewarded for always striving hard to accomplish his business objectives, achieving his goals and exceeding expectations.
"John provides his customers with a first class service, always going above and beyond to ensure he has satisfied the needs of each individual," Mr Russell said.
