NELSON Bay resident Ben Eick of LJ Hooker Home Loans Hunter has taken home the title of World Champion Home Loans Consultant at LJ Hooker’s Annual International Awards night held recently in Cairns.
The award is open to all LJ Hooker Home Loans specialists internationally, and based on the number of settlements that Mr Eick managed to secure over a 12 month period.
Ben Eick has lived in the Nelson Bay area for more than 23 years, raising his four children in the local area.
A musician and former school teacher, Ben has found his niche as a Mortgage Broker.
Mr Eick first began operating his independently owned LJ Hooker Home Loans Hunter in 2005.
Since those early days Ben Eick and his team have won award after award here in Australia as well as internationally.
“Our next twelve months has kicked off with a bang, with the new team at Nelson Bay already having broke loan lodgement records for July and August,” Mr Eick told Bay News Of The Area.
“We have a great team and have over 30 accredited lenders, our business is bringing banks to you,” Ben Eick said.
“To be recognised at this level in front of our colleagues from across the Australian and New Zealand LJ Hooker network is a great honour,” Mr Eick added.
“We have all worked hard over the past 12 months and accepting this award is a reflection of this hard work.”
LJ Hooker CEO, Grant Harrod praised Ben Eick and the team at LJ Hooker Home Loans Hunter for their continued hard work and dedication to their clients.
“Ben and his team are consummate professionals and have an excellent reputation for getting great results for buyers and sellers in the Hunter area,” said Mr Harrod.
At the annual NSW/ACT state awards held in Sydney just weeks ago Mr Eick took home the gong for Top Home Loans Consultant – Number of Settlements, which meant he was eligible for the international prize.
