CMP: How do you think the industry needs to change to better serve both brokers and consumers?
Deb White: In the past few years, I have witnessed a huge curve in the awareness of brokers. Gone are the days that we are loan sharks – thank goodness. Through the associations in each province, consumers are becoming more and more educated on how a broker can be of great service to them. As long as we as brokers keep the awareness up, we will succeed.
CMP: What’s your prediction for the state of the mortgage industry this year?
DW: My belief is that the mortgage industry will stay strong and increase! The consumers are loving the personal touch that they receive when working with a broker and the hours that we work. With technology these days, we are answering calls and approving mortgages at 9 p.m.
