Axiom Mortgage Partners has appointed Tony Roberts as the vice-president of Ontario and Eastern Canada.
Before making the transition into mortgage brokering in 2008, Tony spent over 20 years on the lending side of the mortgage industry – working for the likes of Household Finance, TD/Canada Trust and Wells Fargo.
During this time, Tony accumulated some useful insight into the mindset and day-to-day rigours that brokers face – first, as part of the brokers and sales force at TD/Canada Trust and, later, as one of the pioneers of Wells Fargo’s brand new “non prime” program.
Through these roles, Tony acquired an understanding of the symbiotic relationship that exists between brokers, agents, lenders, insurers and other industry professionals in the broker channel – a relationship that he believes is imperative to the success of the broker channel as a whole.
“It is critical that we protect each others’ interests and perform with the utmost professionalism and integrity in order to solidify the broker reputation and attract unprecedented consumer appeal,” he says.
