Stretching relatively sedate Montreal to the molten-hot market of Vancouver, this year’s Top Commercial Brokers truly have a nationwide reach. Many on this list have been bolstered by the thriving commercial markets of the Lower Mainland and the GTA, but others in Calgary, Manitoba and Quebec have overcome regional challenges to post impressive numbers as well. What unites them all is a fantastic level of skill in their chosen profession – each person on this list expects to increase their deal volume in 2016, despite Canada’s volatile economy.
Together, our Top Commercial Brokers funded a combined loan volume of $1.17 billion in 2015 – so clearly there are plenty of deals still out there to be made, regardless of market location or increasingly stringent lending rules. From brokers in Vancouver and Toronto who look to capitalize on their success with expansion plans, to those in cities like Calgary who are finding new ways to add value for clients, the commercial brokers on this list are excelling in their roles and building an industry that will continue to thrive in the years ahead.
