INVESTMENT 'YOUNG GUN' LAYS EXPANSION PLANS

AT JUST 26 years of age, George Samios has already established himself as one of the most celebrated young brokers in Australia.

Borne of a desire to help clients get the best possible deal, he founded MADD Loans in 2012, offering home, construction, investment and car loans, as well as financial advice, to customers.

Since its inception, both MADD Loans and Samios have been recognised for broking excellence, scooping up a plethora of accolades. In March, Samios picked up the Rising Star award at the Better Business Awards in Brisbane, while he was also recognised as Young Gun of the Year at the 2014 Connective National Excellence Awards.

Most recently, Samios was awarded the Australian Broking Awards' Newcomer of the Year, in July.

Samios says the success of his company is rooted in its immersive approach, which differentiates MADD Loans from banks and other lenders.

"The difference is that we really care," says Samios. "We try very hard, we do what we say and go further than what's considered normal," he says.

"Whereas a bank might just help with a home loan, we help with accounting, financial planning and property planning. We go into a lot more detail with a client so that if somebody walks in not knowing anything about property or home loans, they will walk out with a massive knowledge of that."

This approach has seen tangible rewards for Samios, with MADD Loans experiencing growth of 87 per cent and 53 per cent in the last two financial years, respectively. Progress is not only limited to financial rewards, with a recent TV commercial starring Australian comedy icon Vince Sorrenti (pictured right), aired on Channel 10, further bolstering the burgeoning reputation of the company.

Samios plans to hire more staff and expand operations over the next financial year, with a Melbourne office due for completion in December. Home shows in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are also lined up for the company over the coming year, as Samios looks to continue expanding the operations of MADD Loans.

"There have been heaps of things we've had to overcome in the last three years, but we've also seen continuous improvement and pretty rapid growth. We have the intention of expanding all across Australia in the next couple of years."
