Commercial experts give advice

by |

“In my opinion, an agent looking at getting into the commercial game should mentor under someone experienced," Matthew Laverty of The Mortgage Centre Mortgage Brokers Ottawa told "A lot of agents are not even able to understand how to read financial statements, so how can we expect them to take a weekend course and walk away being called a commercial expert? Too often clients call and say they paid so-and-so a fee to get them a commercial mortgage and it never closed.”

The course details can be found below.

    Hi Paul and thanks for your interest,
    We've held the course in Vancouver in the past and look forward to getting back out to Vancouver as well as Calgary in the near future. We'll be posting additional dates on our website at over the next couple of weeks.

    I'd agree with much of the article - commercial transaction sure are a different beast. As on of the instructors of the course our goal is to provide some clarity on approach and what to expect. No doubt the one dy result is not to make everyone a noted financial analyst. Looking forward to also offering this in different centers again. Good luck all.
