Honouring the industry's savviest females

by |
Twenty years ago, when consumers conjured up an image of a mortgage broker, the blurry picture of a man in a suit most likely came to mind. Well, that’s assuming any image arrived at all. Still, flash forward to 2014, and today’s savvy homebuyers are just as likely to imagine a woman in that suit as they are a man. The truth of that statement was never more evident in crafting last year’s first-ever Women of Influence feature.

Last year we identified 10 of those industry stars and this year we continue the trend by featuring ten more.

For this year’s list we’re looking to our faithful readers to help us identify these talented ten. And, hey, don’t shy away from nominating yourself – we’re looking for the best and the brightest females from across Canada and one of them may very well be you.

While it's CMP’s attempt to both honour and recognize individuals who have made positive contributions to the industry, the list is also a celebration of the growing influence of women in an industry still in its infancy.

What the list is not is a ranking; it’s also not scientific and it’s absolutely not CMP’s last word on the subject, but the magazine’s continued salute to broker women.

So email MortgageBrokerNews.ca and let us know who you think should be featured in our second Women of Influence issue.

    Marina Reznik, INVIS Inc, Thornhill. She's the smartest and most knowledgable, has a good business sense and always willing to help. She's my 1st choice for this year's award.

    I would recommend Claire Drage as being an innovator with her training program as well as savvy business ethics. Her philosophy warrants multiple recurring referrals from existing clients and peers. If you want a knowledgeable and servicing Mortgage broker - she is your woman!
