Mortgage Choice is an ASX-listed mortgage broking company established in 1992 by co-founders Rod Higgins and Peter Higgins.
Their vision of building a national network of ethical, credible and professional mortgage brokers that local communities can trust, remains at the forefront of what we do.
Since that time, Mortgage Choice has grown and developed into a fully-fledged financial services provider.
At Mortgage Choice, we have one significant point of difference that sets us apart from the competition.
Our brokers are paid the same rate of commission regardless of which lender best serves the client.
This ensures we have our customers' best interests at heart and an ethical approach to business that drives us.
Our ‘Client for Life’ philosophy sees our franchisees rewarded with 90%+ customer satisfaction ratings. Our customers don't just return to us time after time, they regularly bring their friends, family and work colleagues with them.
Investing in a Mortgage Choice franchise gives you instant brand recognition, thereby avoiding major hurdles that can stand in the way of success for start-up businesses.
Consumers recognise and trust the Mortgage Choice brand. This paves the way for all our franchisees to have their best shot at success.
As a Mortgage Choice franchisee, you have complete ownership of your business and your career. You have the freedom to succeed in your own individual way with the support of the company’s exceptional systems and processes.
Since the beginning, innovation has always been a key element of the Mortgage Choice business model. It is for this reason that we actively and consistently seek to expand our suite of services that we deliver to our customers.
At Mortgage Choice, we want to make sure we can meet all of our customers’ financial needs, thus becoming their one –stop financial shop.
As part of our desire to evolve our customer proposition, in 2011 we launched Mortgage Choice Financial Planning. This business sits alongside our broking business, meaning our mortgage brokers and financial advisers work together to help meet our customers’ full set of financial needs.

A business that's flexible and mobile
The Mortgage Choice business model allows you to keep overheads and operating costs to a minimum. You don't have to invest in infrastructure – it’s all in place! We don't require franchisees to buy or rent premises. There’s no need to pay for costly fit-outs, purchase or lease equipment or employ staff to satisfy trading hour requirements. However, when you start your franchise it always makes sense to allow for an initial period of tight cashflow and it's essential to factor this into your business budget.
Unrivalled training – ongoing support
Mortgage Choice has the advantage of 20 years of experience, and we’ll share it all with you. Our in-house rookie training program "Accelerate"’ is intense. Additionally, you’ll need to complete a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management. All your training will provide unparalleled insights into how the industry works and what it takes to achieve success in your Mortgage Choice franchise.
Build a valuable, saleable asset
Owning your own business is not all about today. A Mortgage Choice franchise is an investment in a valuable, saleable asset for your future. Through your efforts and with our support, your franchise should grow in value to build your wealth, making your partnership with Mortgage Choice as rewarding financially as it is personally.
Achieve work/life balance
A Mortgage Choice franchise lets you enjoy the freedom to choose the hours you work and the premises you work from. While lots of hard work is required to build your business, it ultimately means that with drive, passion and enthusiasm, you can potentially enjoy business success and the flexibility to enjoy your personal life as well.
