Before getting into the mortgage business I was one of those people who didn’t see the need for a mortgage broker and always arranged for lending through my bank, like most people. As a licensed Realtor I was exposed to the Mortgage Broker community when clients needed help with their financing. Mortgage agents can arrange for much more creative financing, especially when a client doesn’t quite fit the mold for a standard bank. I’ve spent most of life being self employed which can present a challenge for financing at the banks. Even for regular clients mortgage agents can access lending rates not publicly posted. I pursued this career because I recognize that every single borrower should be represented by a mortgage agent.
Being a company officer and firefighter has taught me many life skills that carry over to everything I do, including being the best mortgage agent I can be. Firefighting requires discipline and the ability to think creatively in situations that can mean the difference between life and death. I’ve developed a keen understanding of the importance of focus and attention to detail as well as being able to think on my feet and move in the best direction for my client depending on their current and future financial situation. It’s not just about securing the best financing in the present for my client, it’s also about having a vision for their future financial goals.
I was born, raised and still live in Brampton. I’ve spent my whole life in the Toronto area from the east end all the way to the Halton Region. This is a very unique and diversified area to live. From condo living at Harbourfront to small community living in the outer reaches of Toronto we represent every ethnic background and cultural diversity one can imagine. In the GTA you can spend your day along the lakeshore with crowds of people or spend time hiking the Bruce Trail in solitude when you just need to get away.
