Mike Pero Mortgages Brokers Take Honours at 2011 NZMBA Awards

Mike Pero Mortgages’ brokers have taken out four top awards at the 2011 annual New Zealand Mortgage Brokers Association (NZMBA) Awards held in Auckland on Friday night.

Shane Crawford was awarded Broker of the Year for Otago & Southland, James Heath for Canterbury, Maria Pereira for Greater Wellington and Lee Johnson for Central North Island. Grant McFlinn in Greater Auckland and Stuart Pope in Nelson & Marlborough were also nominated.

Mike Pero Mortgages Chief Executive Shaun Riley says he’s full of praise for his brokers’ achievements.

“Shane, James, Maria and Lee have been recognised for the outstanding work they do. These awards are the result of a lot of determination and hard work. In this industry it’s all about client service and these brokers certainly live by the phrase ‘putting the client first’,” he says.

He says the four winning brokers consider it an honour to take out the top awards for their regions.

“Each of the winning brokers finds it gratifying to be recognised by their peers for doing a job they really love. They also find it very rewarding to know they have made the process of getting their clients into a new home a satisfying experience.”

Shane Crawford has been with Mike Pero Mortgages in Alexandra & Cromwell for four years, James Heath has been based in the Christchurch office for 11 years, Maria Pereira has worked in Wellington for 10 years and Lee Johnson has looked after the Manawatu region for six years.

The NZMBA Broker Awards are among the most prestigious and sought after industry related awards. The judges say the awards recognise the outstanding contribution brokers have made to mortgage broking in New Zealand and also reflect the outstanding manner in which these brokers have dealt with both clients and lenders.

Brokers are nominated for the NZMBA Broker Awards by lenders. The nominated broker then makes a submission, including a business and processes plan and provides other relevant information. A presentation and interview session is then held with a judging panel.

Shaun Riley says the other Mike Pero Mortgage nominees in the NZMBA Awards deserve to be congratulated for their efforts. He says Grant McFlinn and Stuart Pope have also made the company extremely proud of their achievements.

“It is a real reflection of the professionalism and care all our brokers show when dealing with their clients to ensure they receive the most trusted and unbiased mortgage advice.”
