Laura Martin, Matrix Mortgage Global

Chief operating officer


Age: 32

Years in the industry: 12

Given that her parents are involved in Toronto real estate, it seemed natural for Laura Martin to work in the industry in some capacity. She got her start as a mortgage broker 12 years ago and has been thriving ever since. As chief operating officer at Matrix Mortgage Global, Martin and her team have a long list of accomplishments under their belt, but she’s most proud of her ability to evolve.

“The only constant is change,” she says. “If you keep this in mind and maintain an adaptive business model, challenges become opportunity. My professional accomplishments are not static events, but rather a culmination of sustained effort to improve our processes, conversions and reach through the use of fintech, training and delegating.”

The constant innovation at Matrix Mortgage Global landed the brokerage a spot as the number-one fastest-growing brokerage in Canada on the 2018 Growth 500 List from Maclean’s and Canadian Business. Martin is also no stranger to personal accolades: She was named one of CMP’s Women of Influence in 2018 and was a finalist for Broker of the Year (25 Employees or More) at the 2019 Canadian Mortgage Awards.
