Exclusive chat with Lauren van den Berg, President and CEO of Mortgage Professionals Canada (MPC), to cover mortgage industry trends, the future of mortgage brokering and more.
“Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or you’re moving up the ladder, mortgage brokers and lender partners are all sort of behind the scenes. We make sure everything happens, but we’re not necessarily always that first point of contact, that frontline connection that you might get with a realtor, for example, physically taking you through a home. Part of what I want to do with my mandate here in my role as CEO and President is to really start taking up more space and bragging about what we do and making sure that when you decide to embark on a home-buying journey, a mortgage broker is absolutely first on your list before you even speak to a realtor; and that’s because we know the local markets, we have that insight, that perspective and it’s not a transactional relationship. We want to be here over the course of your mortgage life cycle.”
