Leading mortgage brokering company Mortgage Express has announced that Vicky Devine has been named Choice CEO of the Year. Choice Aggregation Services awarded its top award to Ms Devine during its annual High Achievers event, Platinum. This is only the fifth time in its 22-year history that the CEO of the Year award has been given.
“I am honoured to be recognised by the industry and my peers in the mortgage industry,” said Ms Devine. “This past year could easily have redefined our industry, but collaboration across the industry is what made us so much stronger – and that is thanks to our industry network, our Mortgage Express brokers and their clients.”

Mortgage Express is a partner of global real estate franchise network Harcourts International.
“Harcourts is proud to have a strong and growing connection with Mortgage Express across Australia and New Zealand servicing financial wellness for families,” said Mike Green, Executive Director Operations, Harcourts International.
At the Platinum event several Mortgage Express brokers obtained High Achiever status within the wider broking community: Christine Penford, Doug Owens, Tracey Pye, Rick Spinks, Daniel Jones and Jamie Girgin.
Ms Devine went on to note that the highlight of the two-day retreat, held in New Zealand, was a session for the Team with Gilbert Enoka, All Blacks Manager and Board Director of Harcourts International, on what culture looks like in high preforming teams. His theme of ‘Be present where your feet are’ resonated with the Team during the lead in to the festive season, given the ramifications of the Royal Commission report.
“Mortgage Express is built on the goal of providing consumers the convenience of doing all the leg work to access an affordable home loan while balancing their clients’ financial interests and future goals,” said Ms Devine. “Our group of mortgage brokers are dedicated to fulfilling that promise, and to have been recognised for our work in this way is truly remarkable.”

With over 1,600 members, it consistently achieves over $1 billion in monthly settlements and has a year-on-year growth.
