THE MORTGAGE PROFESSIONALS
Years in the industry: 7
Seven years ago, Brandon Lowi left a position with a financial institution to pursue a career in mortgages. “After working at a bank, I quickly discovered I could offer more and better solutions as a mortgage agent,” he says, adding that helping people who aren’t able to secure traditional financing has been his greatest accomplishment.
Today, Lowi is an agent with Eastern Ontario’s largest mortgage brokerage, The Mortgage Professionals, which has been a finalist for a number of Canadian Mortgage Awards, including Mortgage Broker of the Year and Industry Employer of Choice.
As a young agent, Lowi sees the industry’s greatest challenge as the battle between advice and technology. “I believe we’re always looking for better and more efficient ways to do things,” he says. “But I believe this has also created a divide where advice isn’t being given, and it becomes more of a transaction business based on rate rather than expertise.”
