Bavneet Mundi, Principal broker, Mortgage Alliance Pinnacle Capital
After growing up and finishing her bachelor’s degree in India, Bavneet Mundi moved to the UK to pursue an MBA. She went on to work at Barclays to gain experience in the financial industry. In 2007, she immigrated again to Canada, where she joined TD Bank to learn the ropes in the mortgage industry. Finally, in early 2015, Mundi was able to realize her dream of starting her own business.
Mundi advises new brokers that success requires both motivation and time. “Although motivation comes from within, I see lots of young professionals joining the industry to test the waters for themselves,” she says. “They see lots of successful people in this market and yearn to be like them. The message for young professionals should be loud and clear: It takes years to build your client base – and more importantly, to keep that client base. [Growing your] knowledge about your product, lender, etc., is key to getting you where you want to be.”
In 2016, Mundi’s company was nominated for Best Newcomer Brokerage at the CMAs. Mundi also earned a spot among the top 10% of Mortgage Alliance mortgage agents in both 2015 and 2016.
