THE PROCESS SO FAR

We conducted a call for nominations from June 2024 to July 2024 and received hundreds of nominations. This was followed by an intensive research period to verify the nominations and ensure that those selected as excellence awardees were the most deserving.

As the publisher of AustralianBroker and Mortgage Professional Australia (MPA), we have an unparalleled presence in the industry, making the nomination and research process exceptionally comprehensive.

More information about the Australian Mortgage Awards process is available here.
