Better bond solutions for Aida clients

Consumers buying property through Aida agents can now look forward to improved bond origination services.


This follows a partnership deal earlier this year between Aida’s holding company Jigsaw and Sanlam, to form Sanlam Home Solutions (SHS) and help consumers gain entry into an increasingly tough property market.


SHS has now brought the PA Group on board in a deal in terms of which SHS sales and administrative staff will be transferred to PA’s mortgage originator BetterBond.


Young Carr, CEO of Aida National Franchises, says the deal represents a great leap forward in the services that Aida clients can expect. “The partnership with BetterBond means that the number of bond consultants increases from 22 to 162, which will streamline service to Aida clients through greater capacity.


“A service level agreement has been concluded with BetterBond and the process will be managed by a dedicated sales team, which means homebuyers can look forward to professional origination services supported by the extensive BetterBond infrastructure and experience.


“We believe this step will greatly benefit our clients in a market where it has become crucial to find bond finance on the best possible terms and in the shortest possible time,” he says.


Aida clients also have access to Sanlam’s wide range of products in terms of the Sanlam agreement. “Clients have streamlined access to insurance products, including householder and homeowner policies, which further enhances Aida’s one-stop service for property consumers,” Carr says.
