Years in the industry: 6

After following his father into the mortgage business six years ago, Jon McKay has built a niche in helping homeowners who have been turned down by the banks. “The government stress test that was introduced roughly a year and a half ago is a big challenge,” he says. “Borrowers who would have normally qualified with the major financial institutions a few years back unfortunately don’t meet the same qualifications today. As a result, we have seen a large increase in homeowners who are looking for an alternative solution.”

McKay, a two-time member of the Young Guns list, is driven by his ability to make a difference in his clients’ lives. “My proudest moment would have been a little under a year ago, when I helped saved my clients’ home the day before the sheriff was coming to change the locks,” he says. “Hearing my client’s sadness turn to tears of joy, it really made me feel proud about what I do.”
