DLC ELITE LENDING CORP.
Years in the industry: 4
After spending seven years in the banking industry, Norris Yu followed his mentor to start Elite Lending Corp.
While Yu struggled in his first few months, the feeling he got when he succeeded reaffirmed his decision to leave the bank.
“In moments where I did succeed and got my client that mortgage, their dream home, I felt the exhilaration of a successful mortgage broker,” he says. “It was through these initial successes where I found my confidence to strive for my own business and brand.”
Four years in, Elite Lending has found tremendous success. The brokerage was a finalist for Best Newcomer Mortgage Brokerage and Excellence in Philanthropy and Community Service at the 2018 Canadian Mortgage Awards, as well as for Brokerage of the Year (25 Employees or More) at the 2019 CMAs. CMP also named Elite Lending one of Canada’s Top Brokerages in both 2017 and 2018 and a Top Mortgage Workplace in 2019.
Yu is also active in Elite Lending’s charitable foundation, Elite Cares, which contributes to numerous causes, including a local soup kitchen, Habitat for Humanity and the BC Children’s Hospital.
