Last year marked the inaugural Broker Lifestyle Issue and in it, we uncovered just what exactly makes up the average mortgage broker. But this year, we'd like to get even more detailed so let us know what questions you'd like to see us ask in the comments below.

    I would be interested in the technology brokers are using to keep in touch with their borrowers after funding e.g. Sales force, Maximizer, Incontact, Revo.

    I would like to know several things:
    1) What level of education does the average broker have?
    2) Does the average broker push beyond a better interest rate, offered by the banks, and put forward a better solution?
    3) In order to achieve 2) above many more questions need to be answered than contained in the average application form. What are some of the questions that the average broker asks in order to achieve 2)?
    4) In order to achieve 2) a far better knowledge/understanding of other things is required, such as:
    - estate planning
    - capital gains
    - interest expense
    - leverage
    - accounting
    to name a few. How often are these things involved in providing a better solution for the average client by their broker?
