Steve Dyment, Mortgage broker, Verico Xeva Mortgage
Steve Dyment went from borrower to broker after getting a good picture of how the industry works while building his own home. “I got into this industry when my wife and I decided to build a spec home and were introduced to a mortgage broker for the financing,” he says. “I immediately thought that the blend of finance, sales, real estate and self-employment would be a great fit for me personally and decided to make the career move. I’m so glad I did as I find out how everything remains interesting, challenging, exciting, varied and fulfilling.”
Dyment’s most recent accomplishments include quadrupling his business from 2014 to 2016, and winning Verico’s 2016 Veris Award for being one of the top three brokers in British Columbia for total units, as well as the network’s Chairman’s Club Award for funding $50 million over 110 deals. Dyment’s next goal is to land a spot on CMP’s Top 75 Brokers list while still maintaining a maximum of 40 hours a week to keep a good balance between work and family life.
To help recruit new brokers into the industry and prepare them for the constantly changing environment, Dyment serves as speaker at various conferences and workshops, such as the annual Xeva Rising Leaders Conference, events organized by the Mortgage Brokers Association of British Columbia, and finance and real estate talks in his community and at his church.
