Mortgage Associate AMPC
Back in the summer of 2015 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, I was a single mom of two on maternity leave who found myself needing to move out of where I was living. I had saved up money over the previous years to someday put towards a down payment on a house and I thought this was the perfect time to do just that.
I had been looking at a few houses and decided to go to my bank to make sure I would qualify for a mortgage before looking any further, but they unfortunately declined me with no explanation given.
I went back to the Real Estate Agent I had been working with to let him know what had happened and he recommended that I contact a Mortgage Broker he was familiar with who had helped other people with challenges getting financing. I contacted her and she explained the process to me and told me what I would need to do to qualify for a mortgage.
Because of a Mortgage Broker I was able to buy my first house for myself and my kids.
Fast forward 6 years later to 2021, I had been with my now husband for 5 years and we had two more kids together. Our family was too big for the house I had bought. We bought a new house for our family of six and I again had an excellent experience with the same Mortgage Broker.
I was on maternity leave again at this time and started thinking about what I should do for income. I wouldn’t be able to afford to send four kids to daycare on my salary. I needed something more flexible.
I have strong administrative skills and have always done my best to go above and beyond for people I’ve worked for/with and the idea of helping people get into home ownership really appealed to me. I wanted to help people the way I was helped. That’s what led me on this path.
I’ve learned a lot of things along the way and have taken every opportunity to further my education in the mortgage industry. After realizing that the course to become a Mortgage Associate was a little light, I started reading every book I could get my hands on about this field of work, listening to podcasts and taking training workshops at an additional cost. I noticed that the girl who did the podcast was with Mortgage Architects, so was the girl who put on the training workshop, and the guy who wrote the series of books I read on mortgage brokering is the President of Mortgage Architects.
I felt compelled to seek out this company, so I reached and found Tara Borle's team of over 100 agents, which is the 3rd largest national team in Canada, allowing me access to an abundance of training and resources and a highly skilled mentor. We collectively funded over $600 million in volume in 2022, which gives me access to preferred rates in order to best serve my clients.
Since getting licensed in August 2022 I have taken a step further and passed the exam to receive the Accredited Mortgage Professional of Canada designation, which means that I am committed to continuing my education in my industry each year.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have. I am happy to help in any way I can.
