Congratulations Karen Parks and Paula Watts for taking out two prestigious awards at the National Vow Financial Awards Ceremony which was held in Sun City, South Africa.
Both Karen and Paula, who have only been Home Loan Specialists for one year are already making a great name for themselves.
Vow Financial is a mortgage aggregator that forms part of the Yellow Brick Road Group and Executive Chairman, Mark Bouris was in South Africa to help award the network’s top performers.
Karen Parks was named Broker Partner of the Year – National ALI Champion which recognises a broker that not only helps their clients in securing a home loan but also ensures their financial circumstances including their asset, family and lifestyle are protected from the unexpected.
With past experience working at Commonwealth Bank for seven years and then as a mortgage broker’s personal assistant, Karen has a solid background in finance.
In the year ahead Karen plans to continue to grow her client base, build diversity in the business and continue to help her clients achieve the dream of home ownership. “I will continue to talk to my clients about affordable mortgage protection solutions as it’s important to protect your home which is such a big financial asset. I’m also always looking for other opportunities to expand the business through strong relationships, I really enjoy the customer interaction with my role and want to continue to grow as a Home Loan Specialist” she said.
Team-mate Paula Watts took out the Broker Partner of the Year – Rising Star in WA/SA award. Paula began working as a personal assistant for a Mortgage Broker and after 20 years, decided that it was time to complete her Certificate 4 in Finance and Mortgage Broking in order to become a Home Loan Specialist.
