Broker Spotlight – Darren Slattery


Darren Slattery | No Bull Finance

How did you get into the mortgage broking industry?

I was looking for something that I enjoyed and have experience with. Finance was an easy choice and as a result mortgage broking.

What do you like most about the industry?

I like the personal enrolment with people while getting to know them and how I can help them meet their goals.

Who is your favourite lender and why?

Bit of a hard one, there are few very good lenders. Pepper finance is my pick as they have products that can help a range of people that the majors would not even consider.

What advice would you offer someone joining the industry?

Don’t rush into it, ensure you are across all aspects of the industry. Compliance is a big topic and you only get one chance to get it right. I’m reminded that people always tell everyone of their bad experience, where as a good experience will get some attention. 

How and when did you join Vision?

I was looking for an aggregator that looked after their brokers and after a few calls, I joined the Vision family in 2020. 

What do you do in your spare time?

I play golf, cook and trade shares

What challenges are you facing with the current climate?

Current challenges are the constant changing of the rules and regulations.

If you won $10M tomorrow, what would you do?

Play golf, cook and trade shares 🙂

What makes you laugh?

Robin Williams and funny cat videos 😉
