Regional sales manager
DLC ELITE LENDING CORP.
Years in the industry: 3
Like many other Young Guns, Victor Ho began his career in the banking industry, but felt limited professionally. “It didn’t offer me any flexibility in making business decisions, nor an opportunity to build my own identity,” he says. “I felt restricted, and ultimately, it didn’t give me the satisfaction I was seeking in a career.”
Ho decided to take the advice of a former colleague and transition to the broker channel. He joined Elite Lending in 2016 and has been instrumental in helping the brokerage earn repeat appearances on CMP’s Top Brokerages list, in addition to being named one of CMP’s Top Mortgage Workplaces for 2019 and a finalist for Best Newcomer Mortgage Brokerage, Outstanding Philanthropy and Community Service, and Brokerage of the Year at the Canadian Mortgage Awards.
In addition to his daily responsibilities, Ho has taken a mentorship position within his team and works on initiatives to help others in the industry, including an online community where mortgage brokers can share ideas and support. He also hosts webinars through his side project, Elite Success Institute, giving new mortgage brokers strategies and techniques to jump-start their careers.
