John Manciameli handed a letter to the Prime Minister of Australia

I personally handed a letter to the Prime minister of Australia On Friday night 7th December 2018, I did something I have never done before. I personally handed a letter to the Prime Minister of Australia. The letter below was written on behalf of my 15,000+ colleagues in the mortgage brokering industry and all the clients I disappointed this year because of the Royal Commission into Banking Misconduct. On behalf of all mortgage brokers in Australia, I am sorry if you had your home loan aspirations affected by this Royal Commission. The good news is the mortgage brokering industry has banded together and started exerting pressure to find a middle ground where lending kicks starts again. To all my colleagues in finance, if a humble mortgage broker in the suburbs of Sydney can find his way to the prime minister, may I encourage you to take up the call to arms from the MFAA/FBAA to contact your federally elected member. Feel free to to copy and paste the letter I wrote below. Your clients need you, our industry needs you, Australia needs you. PS – that really is box of Pannetonne I handed our prime minister!   Dear Scott Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. My name is John and I am a humble mortgage broker working in Sylvania Waters, Sydney. I speak on behalf 16000+ mortgage brokers whom act on the dreams and aspirations of hundreds of thousands of ordinary Australians. The Royal commission into banking has had unintended consequences on Australians. I thank you in advance for the opportunity to bring what’s happening...

John Manciameli talks to Sally Prowse, CEO of Sandcastle Finance

What first attracted you to help your clients with their investment property aspirations?I’ve always had a passion for property and I completed a Property Investment Advisers course, just before I started working with Slipstream, where I discovered some of the basic foundations. I love exploring the future with my clients and asking them – where do you want to be in 10-15 years time? Why did you choose to work with Slipstream?Anyone who has started working in the investment property space, whether it’s with their clients, or just for themselves personally will know how many cowboys there are out there.     The industry is completely unregulated at the moment and so one of the biggest things that attracted me to work with Slipstream is that they are an aggregator of accredited research houses and buyers’ agents who you can really trust.     I had the opportunity to meet the panel at the first Slipstream workshop I attended and the high standard was obvious. They really understood the whole process from beginning to end and immediately set to work helping me to set out a realistic and manageable process I could follow. What are the key benefits of working with an independent aggregator of investment property research and buyers’ agents?A huge issue is knowing who to trust in the sector, and this is a crucial component of the referral business, so knowing Slipstream has this covered is a huge weight off my mind.     Slipstream’s vetting process for the research houses and buyers’ agents is really strict – this is the way you know you’re working with the best of the best in the industry.      The other...
