MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 13
34 Mortgage & Finance brief Mardee Thomas M ardee Thomas was on a tennis scholarship in Dallas, Texas, for four years studying a Bachelor of Business. When she returned home, she was offered the opportunity to work with Wizard Home Loans in Surry Hills in 2001. She grabbed it with both hands. “It was definitely challenging in the beginning with no real revenue stream and not knowing when the next application was going to present itself,” she says. “I guess this was the driving force to do better and better.” Since then Thomas’s family has grown, and so has the business. “I started in this industry while I was still living at home and prior to having a family – which comes with its own responsibilities. This definitely helped me to grow the business without the overheads in the early days,” she says. She also credits family, love, a better lifestyle and being the best mother she can be to her children as inspiration for her to succeed – that and opportunities for growth. Thomas says that reliability, honesty and a focus on providing exceptional service to each and every client, every time, sets 1st Street apart, and believes her focus and dedication to achieve the best results for her clients is the standout difference from other brokers in the industry. “I believe that honesty, professionalism and integrity enable me to make my clients’ finance requirements a rewarding and pleasant experience,” she says. Since her time at 1st Street, Thomas has received a number of industry accolades. She was also among the top performers at both Wizard and Aussie on the basis of volumes written and overall client satisfaction. Future plans include growing the business and constantly focusing on improving her knowledge through further education. Thomas also plans to work on new initiatives to ensure her clients always have a great experience when dealing with her. Honesty, professionalism and integrity enable me to make my clients’ finance requirements a rewarding and pleasant experience. cover story
