Smartline broker Raksmey OK finds being a mortgage broker extremely rewarding for two reasons.
First and foremost, helping others is what Raksmey is about.
“What could be better than helping people realise their dreams?” says Raks. “Or finding solutions to people’s problems? These things give me a great sense of personal satisfaction, so being able to do this for a living is perfect.”
Raksmey also loves the flexibility that comes from owning his own business. It means he can work around his personal life, rather than having to be part of the daily 9 to 5 grind, and he can work as much or as little as he likes.
“It comes down to what you want from life,” he says. “I have been able to help a credit-impaired client get their first loan; it was a great feeling to be able to help someone who had been through some hardship. I have also helped many families save lots of money by finding them a great rate –it’s wonderful to know you’re appreciated.”
In addition, Raksmey has found a strong sense of personal satisfaction from the new relationships he has made through his business. “These relationships have not only helped my business grow but have allowed me to expand my networks and associate myself with a wider group of professionals than I would otherwise have been able to connect with,” he says.
