CMP: In your view, what is the biggest advantage of being an independent?
Bespoke Mortgage Group:
As an independent we’re able to establish our own identity and brand on our terms. Being a member of the Coalition of Independent Mortgage Brokers of Canada has its perks in terms of having access to lenders at top-tier status and through a comp structure that can’t be beat. By collecting 100% of commission, we’re able to allocate funds towards specific areas that we believe in such as marketing and business development.

CMP: Do you think brokers affiliated with a network have an easier time building a brand? What do you do to cultivate your brand and make it memorable for clients?
Not at all – we feel by owning our own independent brokerage we are building a brand that is ours. Being part of a network, you are marketing another brand and are a franchise of that brand. Bespoke Mortgage Group is all about laying down the red carpet for all its clients by way of delivering exceptional service and building meaningful relationships.

CMP: What are the biggest issues facing the broker industry today?
Access to balance sheet funds – not many options are available to the broker industry, [as well as] regulatory changes and fair playing levels between the broker and branch channels.

CMP: What does your company do differently to stand out from the competition?
Bespoke Mortgage Group takes pride in its outstanding customer service and has built its business on referrals from satisfied clients and referral sources. Being a part of Bespoke Mortgage Group is a lifestyle and not a job. We are a family that lays out the red carpet for anyone that walks through our door.
