KIMBERLEE FREEMAN

Director of new business development and planning
New Haven Mortgage Corporation

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kimberlee Freeman was adopted by a Canadian family when she was an infant, and she spent much of her youth growing up in various parts of the world. After spending the first years of her career with various mortgage companies, Freeman joined New Haven Mortgage Corporation in 2008. Freeman attributes her success in her role as New Haven’s director of new business development and planning to her disciplined work ethic. “I’m available 24/7 to my broker partners and enjoy sharing the knowledge that I’ve accumulated over the past 19 years,” she says. “I will never delay work that needs to be completed today. I am very organized and pay strict attention to detail at all times.”

At New Haven, Freeman created a lead-generation seminar to teach brokers how to approach and script different referral sources. “These seminars are conducted frequently, and I have even accompanied agents to meet with their potential referral sources,” she says. “There is nothing more rewarding than watching the success of people you have personally assisted.”

In recognition of her successful career, Freeman was asked to be a guest speaker at Niagara College for the Professional Selling II class, addressing the topics of success and leadership. “I spoke to the class about the ‘real world of business’ and shared my personal life story with them,” she says. “I was later very gratified to learn that the class had voted me their favourite speaker in the series.”
