Hi all, I'm based in Townsville and the stories I've heard about some of the local brokers leave a lot to be desired, so I'm considering using a broker who posts on this forum. Are there any problems with using a broker that is not local, and dealing with them purely via phone/email? I would normally prefer a face to face, but would rather use a broker with good recommendations than take a shot with an unknown. My next few purchases will likely be in North Queensland so it would be nice to have a broker with knowledge of the area, but I think it would be more important to have someone that can help align my finance structure with my goals. Can anyone make any recommendations?
