Making Mortgages Easy!
Markets Served: Edmonton and surrounding areas
I have been immersed
in the busy world of mortgage brokering since the spring of 2007 when
Edmonton's real estate market was at the height of a boom. Frenzied buyers were
frantically buying whatever they could qualify for, and multiple offers were
standard. At the time, I had just graduated with a Diploma in Business
Administration, with a major in Finance. I had earned my diploma by working
full-time as a Corporate Sales Rep in the telecommunications industry during
the day and attending evening classes for several years. It was a long haul,
but it allowed me to have a foot in the business world while obtaining some
formal education and I ended up graduating with honours.
With my new diploma in hand, I wanted to change things up a bit and grow my career in a finance-related industry. But after growing a large client base and enjoying working with and getting to know new people every day, I didn't want to give up working with the public. After a lot of research and a few sleepless nights, I decided to combine my love of working with people and my educational training in finance to become a Mortgage Broker. It was a scary move for me (I hate change!) but seemed like a perfect fit. After more than 15 years of working away at it, I can honestly now say that it is.
I am licensed with Verico Compass Mortgage Group whose head office is in Kelowna, BC. Compass is a member of Verico, which is a network that unites top Mortgage Brokers in Canada. This strategic membership, with Verico, allows independent mortgage brokerages to retain their independence while reaping the benefits of being aligned with other independent firms. The benefits include access to a wider variety of lending institutions and ultra competitive interest rates due to the large amount of volume produced by Verico affiliated brokerages.
I am a member of several organizations including CAAMP and AMBA. I am also licensed through the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA).
When I'm not busy approving mortgages and meeting with clients, I am spending time with my husband and our awesome dog! My husband and I love to enjoy a good glass of wine and a nice meal. I love to cook, and enjoy eating even more! My second favorite pastime is working off all that good food at the gym or in Edmonton's gorgeous river valley! I'm passionate about fitness. I love being active and living life to the fullest!
