Tyler Yates, Mortgage broker, Verico The Mortgage Wellness Group
In less than five years, Tyler Yates has been able to build a thriving mortgage business in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, and land a spot on CMP’s Top 20 Small Market Brokers list for two years in a row. Last year, Yates managed to fund $27 million; as of the end of May 2017, his team had already reached 70% of their 2016 totals.
For Yates, a nuanced understanding of technology has been key to success in this industry. “My 10-year career in information technology has allowed me to build tools for my business, and more importantly, for my clients,” he says, “and that allows everyone to make informed and efficient decisions when it comes to planning their perfect mortgage solution.” He also credits his success to having a great mentor and partnering with a forward-thinking network like Verico.
