Broking is challenging enough at the moment without lenders throwing up extra roadblocks. But we’ve listened to your feedback and improved our secure online portal, which is exclusively for our brokers to help you help customers get on track – and stay one step ahead of the competition.
“More than ever, we’re committed to making it easier for our broker partners to do business with Virgin Money and working together to help more customers be financially better off – now and in the future,” says Christian York, Virgin Money Australia’s Head of Distribution.
1. Faster quotes and approvals
The secure broker portal launched in August 2020 – and it’s been a real game-changer for brokers. Response times on quotes and loan approvals have been cut down, giving you and your customers responses quick-smart. No more waiting around!
2. Real-time price comparisons
Finding the right rate for your clients can be challenging at the best of times. But our new live pricing tool takes the stress straight out. We also provide discounts on your customers’ interest rates based on the size of the home loan and loan-to-value ratio.
3. Easy application and tracking
Say sayonara to arduous check-in processes and extended email response times. Just login to our broker portal and you’ll be able to access a library of credit and product policy to ensure your customers have all the right information prior to their application. You’ll also be able to track all your customers’ home loan applications.
4. Streamlined digital comms
Got interstate clients or navigating an impromptu COVID lockdown? No sweat. We’ve introduced digital acceptance and electronic signatures for home loans via our secure online broker portal. Getting your clients’ home loans across the line has never been so easy!
5. Direct access to credit coach
The home loan assessment process may be daunting. But with your credit coach readily available, it’s easy to get stuff sorted on the fly. When you lodge your assessment request, you’ll be assigned a single credit coach who is available to answer any burning questions you have about a customer’s loan.
6. Stepped-up broker support
The expedited self-service online portal is already a broker favourite. But we’re also offering stepped-up support exclusively for brokers after a more personal touch. The team’s been expanded and strengthened, so you can talk to your individual state manager – or a local, dedicated BDM experienced in your metro or regional market. That’s support you can count on.
7. Discounted rates and special offers
Whether your client is in the market for a first home, upgrading to a bigger one, or looking to save interest on a current loan, we do everything we can to keep more money in their back pocket. At the moment, our lowest rates ever are on offer, plus a raft of other offers and benefits, including:
- Variable Home Loans1 from 2.39% p.a. (2.56% p.a. comparison rate#)
- 2-year fixed rate2 1.98% p.a. (2.66% p.a. comparison rate#)
- $3,000 Cashback* on new refinance loans.
Low rates. Big benefits.
