499 | Why Choose an Investment Savvy Broker? – Chat with Brad Fraser


To give you an inside look at the real workings of mortgage broking, we’ve brought in an incredible broker from our investment savvy team…  

Please welcome Brad Fraser! 🙌  

We’re delving deep into the heart of this industry with two compelling real-life scenarios:     

🏡 First homebuyers: This young couple doesn’t want to compromise on their dream home yet are limited in borrowing capacity. How do we solve this with no net loss?   

💼 Aspiring Property investor: A young investor wants to buy his first investment property. Why did we initially say no, and how do we solve this problem amidst rising rates?   

Plus, we unpack Brad’s money story, which follows him as he pivots from spending it all to becoming the financial guru he is today.   

It’s an episode highlighting the importance of using an investment savvy broker who takes a holistic approach to your investment journey. Tune in now! 😊
