Mahfy Rahman

Mahfy Rahman 0430 355 945

At a very young age Mahfy had an avid fascination with the Australian property market leading him to commence his finance career at the age of 19.

From working for the banks for more than 5 years, to the time he started his own mortgage broking business, Mahfy has served with one purpose; to be the broker that he wished he had when he was saving and purchasing his first property in his late teens.

Mahfy is extremely passionate about helping young Australians achieve their dream of owning their first property – and then positioning them to achieve their next. As a millennial himself, he doesn’t want younger generations to think home ownership is out of reach. With his attention to detail, guidance and coaching skills, you’ll find that dealing with Mahfy is a unique and supportive experience.

Throughout his career he has maintained a high level of service in his interactions with his clients and now advocates and drives this within his team – ensuring an ethos that “all clients, no matter who they are or where they’re from are treated as lifelong relationships and not transactions”.

Mahfy grew up in and around the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. He has an active lifestyle and spends most mornings exercising at the gym or the beach. He is the youngest of three siblings who were also born and raised in Sydney. His clients, family and friends know him best for his approach on life – keeping a positive energy, a work-life balance and good vibes. His message to anyone looking to achieve a goal – if not now, when?

“Attention to detail during all client interactions and touch points allows the Astute Bondi team to make a client’s experience second to none. “
