Meet Trent Lee

Trent Lee founded Mates Rates Mortgage Brokers in 2005 based on a very simple belief – mates should always pay less!

By creating the very best in Mortgage Broker models – the cash back Mortgage Broker – Trent Lee’s innovative and disruptive approach to mortgage broking firmly places the needs of his clients first, rather than the lenders.

Nearly two decades later and with more than $10 million paid into our client’s home loans as cash back – which when left credited to their loans could effectively save more than $10 million in compound interest – Mates Rates Mortgage Brokers continues to be the market leader in cash back mortgages, helping our mates to pay off their home loans sooner and achieve greater financial freedom in their lives.

We work for our clients, not for the lenders

Trent created his pro-consumer cash back business model after he attended a presentation where a lender said, “at the end of a day, a loan is a loan, so you might as well recommend us because we pay higher commissions”.

When Trent asked the question, “what if another lender is cheaper for the client with lower interest rates and fees, and pays less commissions?”, the response was “well, who are you working for?”

Trent replied, “ I actually work for my clients!” And the concept of a Mates Rates cash back mortgage with the Lender Commission Leveller was born.

Trent explains exactly how a Mates Rates Mortgage Brokers’ cash back mortgage works in this interview with financial journalist, Alan Kohler.
