Broker of the year revealed - The Adviser (18 July 2011)
Monday, 18 July 2011
Australia's leading brokers and brokerages have been recognised at the inaugural Australian Broking Awards.
1st Street's Jeremy Fisher took out the coveted Broker of The Year award - and $25,000 in cash and prizes - at the prestigious luncheon held at the Overseas Passenger Terminal on Friday 15 July.
According to the judges, Mr Fisher epitomises the new face of broking under the NCCP.
While his residential volumes are among the best in the industry, he has truly diversified business that generates substantial revenue from non-mortgage products.
Principal partner CBA's executive general manager, third party and mobile banking Kathy Cummings was on hand to present Mr Fisher with his award as well as a $10,000 cheque.
"Jeremy is focused on the client rather than the transaction, and the results his business has achieved speak for themselves," Ms Cummings said.
Mr Fisher told The Adviser he was humbled by the win.
"For me, it has always been about the client. I always put the client first and luckily for me this has paid dividends."
