2010 was a good year for Canadian mortgage professionals. Just check out the numbers.
Now in its fourth year, the CMP Top 50 Brokers survey, in partnership with FirstLine Mortgages, saw an increase in submissions as well as a surge in funded volumes across the board.
Today, CMP is releasing the first 40 brokers on the list, many of who are making their first appearance. On Wednesday, the top 10 brokers in Canada will be announced.
The rules for submitting were straightforward: you must be employed as a mortgage professional able to write loans and the deals must have been personally originated by you (back-office support in processing the loans is acceptable, but no other parties have been paid commissions on the deals).
We went to confirm figures submitted by everyone with brokerage head offices and lender underwriters. We recognize that although numbers are paramount when it comes to ranked lists, there are complexities to any survey and reasons behind every ranking.
A high volume and a large number of deals can indicate that you are doing something right to stand out from the crowd, be it launching a clever marketing campaign, tapping into new referral sources, building a list of “niche” clients or simply providing top-notch customer service. It also, in many cases, speaks to a mortgage professional’s hard work over his or her years in the industry.
