    Both Albert and Ron are class acts and will form a great team. Good job.

    Good luck to all involved. Good people joining with good people. The next couple of years will prove interesting. When an industry is growing there is room for more players at different size tiers. A shrinking broker space requires consolidation.

    Great Partneship. All the best to both Ron and Albert.

    Love to see proactive moves in our industry. As the market changes, I agree with Ron Butler, consolidation is necessary.

    Well done everyone involved... all the best!

    I think it just proves how hard it is to be a small brokerage in this business any more. From a business point of view if your not in the multi billion dollars of mortgages funding then its hard to get noticed. Albert and Ron are both sharp business men and I'm sure it was a win/win situation.

    @Len I work with Argentum. We are Not small. we are over 550 Mortgage brokers and do over $3.0 Billion per year. I like this deal for us because from my understanding combined entities will be close to $8.0 Billion per year. That is Top 3 in Canada behind DLC and VERICO.

    Sorry John didn't mean to offend you but in what is probably a trillion dollar industry we are all small potatoes which is what we need to work on glad to see two smart business men working it out.

    Hey John, sorry, this merger still won't put you in the top 3, you forgot about Invis/MI.
