About Tracy Kearey
Tracy is one of Australia’s leading mortgage and finance brokers and heads up an award-winning Brisbane-based brokerage group. With over 22 years’ experience in both lending and small business management Tracy was approached to merge her existing business, Home Loan Connexion (HLC) with the Australian division of Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB). The successful merger took place on 1 April 2021.
Tracy joined HLC in 1999 as a finance and mortgage broker. Over the next 15 years, her client base exploded. So much so, that she became the group’s lead loan writer cementing her position as their number one finance and mortgage broker in Australia!
Tracy’s next move was both bold and financially brave. With the announcement in 2013 that one of the joint directors of HLC was transitioning to retirement, she made a direct approach for a buyout which resulted in her securing a 50 percent share and her appointment as a Managing Director.
Under Tracy’s leadership skills and strategic management HLC experienced phenomenal expansion and growth. Her success as a director of the group can be measured by the ongoing industry acknowledgements and awards the company received.
In addition to obtaining loans for her existing and new clients, Tracy guest speaks regularly on a range of topics at finance, property and industry events and sits on the MFAA’s WIMBN (Women in Mortgage Business Network) Advisory Panel helping to guide initiatives for the industry.
Outside of her busy life, Tracy is a devoted mother of two. She is an avid lover of AFL (supporting the Brisbane Lions), she supports a range of charities, enjoys travel, social events and horse racing.
