CMP Top 50 Brokers list announced

2010 was a good year for Canadian mortgage professionals. Just check out the numbers.
 
Now in its fourth year, the CMP Top 50 Brokers survey, in partnership with FirstLine Mortgages, saw an increase in submissions as well as a surge in funded volumes across the board.
 
Today, CMP is releasing the first 40 brokers on the list, many of who are making their first appearance. On Wednesday, the top 10 brokers in Canada will be announced.

The rules for submitting were straightforward: you must be employed as a mortgage professional able to write loans and the deals must have been personally originated by you (back-office support in processing the loans is acceptable, but no other parties have been paid commissions on the deals).
 
We went to confirm figures submitted by everyone with brokerage head offices and lender underwriters. We recognize that although numbers are paramount when it comes to ranked lists, there are complexities to any survey and reasons behind every ranking.

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.

    This list is a joke. There are 6 names on here that I know 100% that the entire office has to submit under thebrokers name, I worked there. Also, with many broker networks not participating in this program and until all do, how can this be classified as the top 50. Bad accounting, pooling business, brokers having all deals submitted under their name, this is nothing more than self glorification for insecure brokers. Until all accounting and audits performed by CMP magazine are open for public review, this is a joke. CMP states they do the audit, must be pretty bad auditors as I know personally of numerous names on the current list and their numbers are not just theirs. BIG JOKE.

    The rules are actually very clear and I am quite certain CMP investigates the volume reports within the limits of what the Privacy Act and common sense allows. Some of us choose not to participate for a variety of reasons and every established broker knows this is not the definitive list for mortgage volume in Canada. That being said, there is no reason to attack the list except as REC suggests: sour grapes.
