Vincent Tong, Manager of broker support/mortgage specialist, DLC Clear Trust Mortgages
Despite receiving a bachelor’s degree in genetics and cell biology, Vincent Tong decided to pursue a career in finance and lending instead. He went on to take the UBC mortgage licensing course and got a score of 95% on the exam. In 2014, his first year as a broker, Tong won DLC’s Bronze Award. The following year, he received his brokerage’s Sales Excellence Award for being one of its top 10 producers and generating more than $9 million in funding. In 2016, he won DLC’s Gold Award for breaking $18 million in funding. Earlier this year, Tong was promoted to his current role as manager of broker support at DLC Clear Trust Mortgages. In this capacity, he trains all new brokers on packaging and lender policy, as well as ethics. He also co-manages a team of 20 brokers.
When he’s not busy with mortgage work, Tong actively volunteers for British Columbia Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend initiative, where he has been a committee member since 2014, helping with event planning and at functions. Last year, his committee raised more than $788,000, contributing to a grand total of $18 million raised for the event. He is scheduled to host the annual King’s Auto Gala, another fundraiser for the BC Children’s Hospital, which will involve more than 300 leaders in the automotive and real estate industries.
