The Team

Rory Sercombe

Managing Director & Mortgage Broker

Rory first ventured into commercial finance more than 15 years ago where he discovered his passion for tailored mortgage solutions, specialising in strategies for early repayment.

After excelling in a number of positions across national financial institutions, Rory owned and operated an award-winning Wizard Home Loans franchise. The inner northern suburbs branch was consistently recognised as one of the top-performing branches in Australia.

With a keen focus on exceeding expectations, Rory quickly gained and maintained a reputation for going above and beyond for his clients. Not only in settling home loans but in customer care and relationship building with credit teams, allowing much more for his clients than just a suitable home loan.

After Aussie Home loans took over Wizard, Rory continued to run his business successfully for another two years before moving into the fitness industry where he owned and operated his own gym and franchise fitness business. This opportunity equipped Rory with a broader skillset for running small-medium enterprises and strengthened his passion for helping people achieve their goals.

Rory took his expertise back into financial services where he worked as a senior business development manager at the NAB Business Bank and a mortgage broker at a financial planning firm.

Striving for excellence in customer care and tailored finance solutions, Rory and his team are helping everyday Aussies achieve their homeownership dreams at his very own Melbourne mortgage business — Own Home Loans.
