John Contarino is a self-made success who’s built an exceptional career in the financial field over the course of 43 years. In 2017 he made a drastic change and left behind his life in banking to create a brokerage business from the ground up. Mobile Finance Broker began as a one-man show run out of a sublet office in a small, highly competitive region of the country. However, over four short years, Contarino’s brokerage has grown incredibly. Now, he and a small team occupy a high-profile office in the main street of Atherton, Qld, that is decorated with more than eight brokerage awards.
Contarino’s success as a broker can be credited to several factors. Firstly, his extensive background in the financial field has granted him a breadth of knowledge and experience that his competitors sorely lack. Secondly, Contarino has found that the secret to building a successful brokerage business lies in the relationships he builds with people. He feels that the key driver in generating referrals and building qualified opportunities begins with offering a stellar customer experience that people will remember.
Lastly, a great deal of Contarino’s success can be attributed not to skill or learned experience but to passion. For him, there is no greater joy than helping a client fulfil their dreams of homeownership. Being part of the special and important moments in the lives of others is what makes him happy. No one can describe this better than Contarino himself, who has proudly stated that “I absolutely love what I do; becoming a broker was the best career decision I have ever made”.
