Have we got Australia's top regional mortgage broker?

A BUNDABERG mortgage broker is in the running to take out some of Australia's top industry awards.

Aussie Bundaberg and its franchisee, George Farmer (pictured), have been shortlisted as finalists to win the Best Branded Office, Best Regional Office and Best Regional Broker awards at the 2016 Queensland Better Business Awards.

The awards will be hosted by mortgage and finance publication The Adviser.

Earlier this year Aussie Bundaberg won Best Branded Office at the 2015 Queensland Better Business Awards.

Mr Farmer said his team was humbled by the nominations.

"The whole team is excited to again be recognised as one of the best mortgage brokers in Queensland," he said.

"We strive to provide the finest home loan service to our local community, so this accolade is a great sign that we're on the right track.

"We build strong relationships with our customers by getting to know their financial and property ownership goals and helping to achieve them."

Mr Farmer said mortgage broking was very rewarding, and the more brokers put into their business, customers and the local community, the more they would get out of it.

Aussie CEO James Symond said Aussie Bundaberg was one of Aussie's top performers.

"They pride themselves on their customer service and delivering on Aussie's goals to make our customers feel safe, smart and special, and their success here is evident through their recent business growth," he said.

"It's always pleasing when our brokers are recognised by the industry for their hard work and this is no exception."

The winner will be announced at the state awards dinner in Brisbane on February 18.
