About Us

Smart Select Group Pty Ltd (SSG) was established in December 2016 and the Select Realty Tablelands (SRT) and Loan Select Tablelands (LST) businesses changed ownership in February 2017. The two businesses, SRT and LST now trade under the SSG company banner. SSG aims to offer a “one stop shop” for real estate and finance. A small professional team, lead by Albi Homann are available to assist you in both areas of real estate and finance.

SRT is the real estate business of SSG which was founded in 2013 to assist in creating the “one stop shop”. The team at SSG can help you to buy or sell your property in the Tablelands area with the knowledge of the local and current market conditions.

LST is the finance business of SSG which has been reputable since 1994. LST offers mortgage broking with a long history of helping locals and Australian wide clients navigate the ever changing mortgage landscape to find the right loan. Every client’s situation is different and the SSG team enjoys the challenge this presents. The team work hard to find solutions and ultimately take great pleasure in seeing clients achieve their goals and dreams.

The SSG Team

Albi Homann (pictured centred below) is the owner and director of SSG. He is the licensee of SRT and LST as the real estate agent and mortgage broker. He commenced his journey with the company back in 2011 and is passionate about helping his clients. The ever changing market brings with it added challenges, which Albi meets head on.

Cara Raso (pictured left below) is the initial point of contact for both businesses. Cara is not just the receptionist and administration person but she is also keen on developing her knowledge in both the real estate field and mortgage broking.

Nadia Trask (pictured right below) joined the team in September 2016. In this relatively short time she has successfully completed her Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking, her Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management and her Diploma of Financial Planning. Nadia is currently studying for her Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning and gaining more knowledge and skills to accommodate our growing clientele's needs. She is actively involved in the business and has a professional, caring attitude.

100s of Happy Clients

“Albi and Nadia made the process of applying for a home loan seamless and stress-free. They were efficient and clear with communication and turn-around. In purchasing a property, having a relationship with the broker that is built on trust is pivotal to a successful experience - it is paramount when making such huge financial decisions. Albi and Nadia built this trust from the get-go and maintained it throughout the process.”
