Waikato Franchise Move Brings Increase In Business

Waikato Franchise Move Brings Increase In Business

There have been plenty of changes in the life of Mike Pero Mortgages franchise owner, Jacob Annals, over the past four months. The 25 year-old took over the Waikato franchise at the beginning of July and has just opened the doors at his new premises.

Jacob says the move was based on the accessibility and convenience for their clients. Now located on busy Te Rapa Road in Hamilton, the new Mike Pero Mortgages office has an increased level of exposure, which has been brilliant for business.

“Since our move, business has increased dramatically for us in the Hamilton office. We are in a location that almost everyone knows and can find easily, with plenty of parking,” he says.

“But there are also other factors at play, here. Increased living expenses and some general financial uncertainty have prompted people to call us to discuss what we can do to help them achieve their individual goals, through good structures and advice. Sunny weather always adds positivity to the market and dropping interest rates is another key factor in the increased level of business.”

The Hamilton office employs three other mortgage brokers, besides Jacob, and an office manager. The staff of five is kept busy dealing with mortgage business as well as the expanded financial services, including Insurances, Personal Loans, Debt Consolidation, and KiwiSaver.
Jacob may be one of the youngest Mike Pero Mortgages franchise owner’s in the country, but his success in the world of business is based on maturity.

“A number of factors have led to my success – dedication, passion, having supportive family, friends, colleagues and business associates. I’ve also had to put in the long hours but that’s been rewarded by referrals from existing clients,” he says.

Jacob says Mike Pero Mortgages prides itself in providing the best options for clients, not only by sourcing the best lender and structure, but also making the whole process, easier. This is a business philosophy Jacob feels very comfortable with.

“This sort of philosophy makes it very easy to set my future goals. I want to build awareness of what Mike Pero Mortgages has to offer and how we work with over 20 bank and non-bank lenders, to source the best products to suit our clients.”

Jacob says he loves this aspect of his job.

“I like the feeling of providing clients with options and structures they may not have known about or had made available to them. When these options play a major part in the successful purchase of their home or investment property, I consider it a job well done.”

The new Mike Pero Mortgages Hamilton office is located at 543 Te Rapa Road, Hamilton.
