I qualified as a Mortgage Broker in Dec 2006, seven weeks after my first training session with Mark Hobbs at New Leaf, I was brand new to the Industry, I had no experience or knowledge in Financial Services. For the next sixteen months I became an AR of another network. In May 2008 I was reunited with New Leaf this time joining them as an AR. At first I found the move very challenging as their standards were so much higher than I had been use to. However due to the excellent training and constant support I have received from New Leaf, I now have a greater understanding of Mortgage & Protection business. With the knowledge gained I have been able to focus more on the protection side of the business instead of constantly relying on mortgage business, this has been a massive benefit in the current economic climate and has also increased my turnover. The support, help and regular training I receive from New Leaf is unbelievable, if I have a question it is answered straight away by a polite, happy member of the team, all of which was alien at my last network. Joining New Leaf was the best decision I made.
