Seven of the top 50 brokers in the country can be found right here in this city.
The Canadian Mortgage Professionals (CMP) Top 50 Mortgage Brokers Awards has just been announced, and a few of them are from Surrey.
The winners were selected by the volume and number of their transactions.
"While volume is by no means the only mark of success in the mortgage brokering industry, it’s a measurement that shows someone’s ability to bring in business – a key trait to a thriving mortgage professional," says Mortgage Broker News, which released the numbers. "A high volume and a large number of deals can indicate that you are doing something right to stand out from the crowd, be it launching a clever marketing campaign, tapping into new referral sources, building a list of “niche” clients or simply providing top-notch customer service. It also, in many cases, speaks to a mortgage professional’s hard work over his or her years in the industry.
