With a Monday deadline looming, the number of submissions for the CMP Top brokers list has more than doubled last year's, suggesting mortgage professionals are increasingly willing to disclose funded volumes in exchange for a marketing boost.
“Our goal has been to ensure the widest possible cross-section of brokers participate – in terms of their geographical location, but also in terms of network affiliation and market size,” said CMP Editor Vernon Clement Jones. “It’s great to see the successes of so many brokers during a challenging 2011.”
The growth in submissions comes as the magazine expands The CMP Top 50 to the CMP Top 75, as a way of better highlighting industry growth. This year marks the addition of a Top 20 list for brokers in smaller markets where the average home price is $290,000 or lower.
The increase in submissions suggests more brokers have shelved their shyness about sharing funded volumes in consideration of the marketing assistance a spot on the list provides mortgage professionals.
”Being from a small market, I was hesitant to put my numbers in because I didn’t think I could compete against Victoria, Vancouver and Toronto,” said Deb White, owner of Dominion Lending Centres – White House Mortgages in Vernon, B.C. “But being from a small market and making the list, it really makes people more aware.”
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be recognized as a top performer in your industry. You still have until 11:59 pm EDT, Monday, June 16 to submit your entry form.
Also, The Small Market Top 20 is open to all brokers and agents who did a minimum of 80 per cent of their deals in such markets where the average price is at or under $290,000.
Small Market brokers will also automatically be considered for inclusion in the CMP Top 75.
