A Comox Valley mortgage broker is continuing to make a name for itself on a national level.
The list is ranked by the dollar amount of mortgage loans funded.
The downtown Courtenay office was ranked 13th this year by the CMP after funding 379 mortgage loans at a total volume of $142.98 million in 2017.
Mackenzie Gartside, who started the brokerage in late 2006, credited “hiring a great staff and developing systems to manage client relationships” as the keys to growing the business.
According to the CMP, to qualify for the magazine’s top 75 brokers list, brokers had to be “employed as mortgage professionals, [and] be able to write loans and have personally initiated all of their deals.” The magazine states they also had to “provide a breakdown of their deals with verifiable lender contact information” and that only residential deals are considered.
This is not the first time Mackenzie Gartside & Associates was named to CMP’s annual list. According to employees, the brokerage has made the list every year since 2013, including a 12th-place ranking last year.
Mackenzie Gartside & Associates is located at the corner of Cliffe Avenue and Simms Street in downtown Courtenay.
