Good Mortagage Broker in North Eastern Melbourne

Why do they have to be in North Melbourne?
I'm in Adelaide. My broker is in Melbourne.
It's all done by email, fax etc, so there's little advantage in dealing with a local. Better to go for the best, rather than the closest, in my opinion.
Although in saying that there are some darn good brokers here on the forum from Melbourne who are probably just too modest to say they are in Vic.
