Top 75 trend to continue?

Top 75 trend to continue? The number one position for the Top 75 Brokers by Volume may be up for grabs again this year with the numbers strongly suggesting a new person – yet again – will end up with the highest funded volume.

For three straight years the Top 75 position has been held by three different brokers; with Calum Ross taking the honours in 2011, Dan Eisner in 2012 and Jim Tourloukis in 2013. And it looks like the trend may be set to continue with a host of particpants already having submitted impressive numbers.

Of course, this may be a case of counting our chickens before they have hatched as there is still plenty of time for Canada’s highest funding players to get their official submissions in. Click here to participate.  

Last year’s winner, Jim Tourloukis of Verico Advent Mortgage Services recorded a whopping $218.1 million spread out over 592 funded deals in 2012. Despite these impressive numbers, Tourloukis thought he could have done even better.

“There is so much opportunity in this business and we could have easily put some of these initiatives in place and funded much more business,” Tourloukis told CMP at the time. “We hope to do so in the months to come.”

It remains to be seen how Tourloukis – who took the honour as an independent last year but joined the Verico network in 2013 – fared last year. And if his ambition is any indication, this year’s Top 75 broker by volume may inevitably be his for the taking once again.

As always, the Top 75 will run alongside the Small Market Top 20, which recognizes the top funding mortgage brokers who operate primarily in areas where the average home price is less than $290,000.

The poll for both categories is closing soon so act now to ensure your consideration.
