There is VALUE in Experience ! Not all brokers are created equal. Bringing 30 years of financial experience to your mortgage transaction means I have seen almost everything with respect to lending in Canada. A graduate of the University of Western Ontario, I started my career in financial services in 1988 with Canada Trust. My passion to assist people in making some of the biggest financial decisions of their lives was quickly recognised and became a Branch Manager before the age of 30. My experience as a “lender” awarded me the most senior credit “limits” (the ability to approve credit requests in branch) afforded to any manager in Canada (one of only 6 to hold these limits).
As a result of this experience, there is no situation too complex and no request where a solution can not be found. Brian is often heard to say, “it’s not a question of whether we can find you the funds….it is only a question of at what rate”.
A specialist in self employed requests, I have a thorough understanding of how lenders review these applicants…..and where exceptions to policy can be obtained when needed. My ability to dissect tax returns and business financial statements allows me to put forth sound business cases on behalf of his clients, means he gets approvals where others fail…..and get’s higher $$$ approvals than most would contemplate.
Living outside the “big city” means I have a special affinity for country properties, large acreages, and rural areas.
As a member of Today's Mortgage Choice, Brian is one of the team's top agents, and previously benefited from “Top Tier” status within Mortgage Alliance, among many of the most prominent lenders in Canada. This means better rates for clients…..and quicker turn around times.
I am very active in my community as a hockey coach, and treasurer of the local minor hockey association…..and am an avid golfer in summer time……but as busy as this keeps me….I am never too busy for my clients!
