COMPANY: Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Mentors
TOTAL VOLUME: $331,520,352
LOANS FUNDED: 1,086
MOST IMPORTANT DEAL:
“We signed a 10-year renewal with Dominion Lending Centres; I’m proud to be part of the best broker network in the country. And we purchased a CFF [Canadian First Financial] centre. I feel this is a game-changer for our office and is really helping grow my business.”
There’s no other way to put this: Collin Bruce is a powerhouse. This year marks Bruce’s second year in a row at the number one spot on CMP’s top brokers list, and the fifth year in a row he’s been in the top five.
The broker-owner of Dominion Lending Centre’s Mortgage Mentors racked up an impressive $258,615,820 in 2013, but that’s nothing compared to his 2014 finish – a mind-boggling $331,520,352.
Bruce started mortgage brokering in April of 2006, and quickly took the mortgage world by storm. In 2009, he opened his own Dominion Lending franchise, Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Mentors. Bruce has been Dominion Lending Centres’ top agent in both volume and units for the last five years. He won CMP’s Mortgage Broker of the Year in 2012, and was named Canada’s number-one broker by CMP in 2013. When he’s not working on a new deal, Bruce is probably camping in the mountains with his wife of 10 years and their kids, 6-year-old daughter Emerson and 4-year-old son Liam.
So what’s the secret of Bruce’s success? According to him, it’s simple. “I think it’s just really hard work and building trust with the clients,” he says. “Just making that one last phone call before you leave the office to update your client. It goes so far.”
