Competition is fierce among broker networks as evidenced by the recent move one group made within the broker channel.

High funding team defects to new network
Mortgage Architects has signed its newest team, a high-funding group that the broker network hopes will help grow its influence in Ontario.

“This group has been firmly planted with a competitor for nearly 17 years and were positioned as a top producing team. Their decision to join our organization in the face of intense competition … is not taken for granted,” Albert Collu, president of Mortgage Architects said in an official release. “It speaks to our incredible growth story of these past few years transcending us into one of the top mortgage companies in Canada.”

MA recently announced the addition of Zena Shekarabi, Eric Akbar, and Ali Etemadi to its ranks.

“We are excited to be working with Mortgage Architects and all the great people on their team,” Ali Etemadi said. “From technology to marketing, MA has the support structure to help us succeed in the competitive marketplace.”

Ali credits the network’s “integrity, veracity, and support” for making the switch.

“We are honoured and delighted to welcome Zena, Eric, and Ali and to our Mortgage Architects Professional Broker Network,” the superbroker said in a release.
