“We feel what really sets us apart from competing offices is that we hire based on culture and values, not volume and experience,” says Janel Bruce, co-owner at DLC Mortgage Mentors. “Our brokerage is run by myself and my husband, Collin, so it was important to us to create a collaborative family environment for us and our associates.”
To do this, the Bruces have built their business on their relationships with lenders, associates, employees, referral partners and peers. All associates have the support and knowledge of the Bruces and the entire team, including marketing, tools, payroll or anything else they might need. The brokerage also offers an extensive training and mentorship program for new agents.
“Being a part of a team that collaboratively funds around $740 million in mortgages allows our associates access to many lenders with top-tier status, which means dedicated underwriting where available and top-tier compensation, allowing us to get the best rates and products for our clients,” Janel says.
