Hard work pays off

Top mortgage originators are rewarded for dedication and commitment

What are the trademarks of a good bond origination consultant, one that is considered to be a top performer? Marsha Haupt, Betterbond director of sales, explains the qualities of a top performing origination consultant. “A good mortgage origination consultant maintains high standards of professionalism and reflects a professional image in all they do. Their general attitude towards work is characterised by integrity and a high degree of concern for quality as well as adhering to the codes laid down for the property industry.”

She says top origination consultants have a desire to set and meet challenging objectives; to find better or more efficient ways to do things; and to compete against a self defined standard of excellence.

Haupt says “They encourage a company culture which values customers; they monitor and act on measures of customer satisfaction and ensure personal contact with customers including agents, developers, and internal customers.

Six consultants within the Betterbond stable have reached these high and exacting standards, and have been awarded as the Billion Rand Club winners for 2008. These consultants have managed to successfully register R1-billion worth of home loans each over a five year period and in some cases even less than five years.

The winners are Jenny Venter from Centurion, Gerrit van Delden from Gauteng Northwest, Sandra Jarvis from the Eastern Cape and Gina Fourie from Gauteng Northwest, all of whom successfully registered R1-billion worth of deals each within a five year period spanning from 2004 to 2008. Irene van Wyk from Gauteng Southeast and Anchen Pagel from Gauteng Northwest hit the same R1-billion mark in less than five years.

“We are very proud to have consultants of this calibre as a part of our company,” says Haupt, “and it’s only fitting that their successes be celebrated. In this economic climate, accomplishments such as theirs are no mean feat.”
