After immigrating to Canada from Hong Kong 27 years ago, Sally Kwan became a licensed mortgage broker in 1992. Specializing in both residential and commercial real estate financing, including land and construction loans, Kwan has consistently been ranked as TMG’s top broker in British Columbia, in addition to receiving numerous achievement awards and recognitions from a range of financing institutions and business organizations.
A peer describes Kwan as helping to “bridge the gap between new immigrants’ mortgage concept and Canadian mortgage financing practice, including introducing the mortgage broker industry to clients from Asia, where people only go to banks for mortgages.”
Looking toward the future, Kwan is confident that the mortgage broker industry will thrive in 2018, despite another round of government interventions. “We have a saying in Chinese: With every crisis, there is an opportunity,” she says.
