Currently home to 13 brokers, eight support staff and a network of self-employed enterprisers, Smart Debt Mortgages’ primary goal is to provide an environment where entrepreneurs thrive. The brokerage promotes independence and competition and provides the support needed for individuals to be successful in their client/lender relationships. The brokerage holds regular team meetings and currently boasts one of the highest volume averages per broker in the industry at $32 million.
This year, the Smart Debt team has emphasized the importance of team meetings – online and socially distanced – to discuss key issues related to the changing environment. By leaning on one another as business went virtual, the team was able to foster a supportive environment. Several bank mortgage specialists even joined the company and became high-producing brokers, thanks to Smart Debt’s focus on shortening the learning curve and encouraging healthy competition.
