Mortgage broker and founder
The Mortgage Professionals
My participation in the growth and evolution of this industry pales in comparison to many, but my dedication to our company, the industry, its people and the principles we stand for has never wavered,” says Brian Matthey, founder of The Mortgage Professionals.
Matthey started The Mortgage Professionals in 1989 following a 17-year career with CIBC. “I was part of the industry’s formation and believed in its future, and I am proud to have had a part in creating an industry that has spawned so many superstars, a company that has been a training ground for many of the successful agents we have with us today and a company that has successfully completed 30 years in business,” he says.
Matthey has been in the banking and finance sphere for nearly 50 years. Three years ago, he sold his interest in The Mortgage Professionals to his daughter and three partners, but he continues to work as a broker. “It is a joy to see how four young people thought enough of this company to step up financially and invest of themselves and their skills, then go beyond that and invest their time and energy in revitalizing and modernizing our brand in a digital future and growing our company,” he says.
Recently inducted into the Canadian Mortgage Hall of Fame, Matthey says his greatest joy comes from working with his son and daughter. “I love what I do, and that is brokering,” he says. “I still wake up excited every day.”
