CENTUM THE POCKET MORTGAGE
Years in the industry: 7
Involved in construction sales from a young age, Konstantin Polyakov quickly realized the value of good credit. To close more deals, he knew he needed to learn how credit worked, so he pursued a mortgage licence. “It didn’t take long for me to figure out how much opportunity the mortgage and credit industry had to offer,” he says, “so I made the move.”
Since entering the industry, Polyakov has grown tremendously. In 2018, he formed Centum The Pocket Mortgage, which was named New Brokerage of the Year at the 2019 Canadian Mortgage Awards. In addition to running his brokerage, Polyakov is a partner in a consulting firm, RECI, that specializes in helping people re-establish credit; hosts a business/entrepreneurship podcast called PRsonalities; and teaches Brazilian jiu jitsu.
