Forecast for the industry in 2014

“We expect 2014 to be a really busy year. The housing market forecast is very strong, and being in Alberta we expect big things. With the lenders continuing to tighten lending guidelines, I do worry a bit about smaller offices being able to survive with less diversification of mortgage products. Hopefully the consumer will continue to see the value in strong customer service and product expertise over just selling interest rate alone.”
