VP of operations, managing partner and mortgage agent
For Jessica Rickerby, being a woman in the mortgage industry isn’t as much of a challenge as running a business. As Martel Mortgages’ VP of operations and managing partner, as well as a mortgage agent, she plays a dual role in her business, which gives her exposure to a diverse group of people and mindsets.
Rickerby’s approach to clients is to support and educate them on how a mortgage works and provide them with options. In this capacity, she is a go-to for everyone in her circle, from clients to peers in the industry. "I love being challenged every day,” she says. “This industry is forever changing, and there is always something new to learn around every corner. If you stay positive and accept the changes, you will always find success.”
