Mortgage broker

East Coast Mortgage Brokers

Nikki Carew began her career in the financial services industry in 2005 with President’s Choice Financial. She joined the broker channel six years ago and has grown her business to an annual volume of more than $30 million. She also serves as the Newfoundland director of CMBA Atlantic Canada and was a 2018 WIMI ambassador and chairperson for the Brokering Wishes Gala for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

“The mortgage industry is definitely one that is challenging; however, life this year decided to challenge me in a completely different way – with breast cancer,” Carew says. She encourages her peers to “ensure you are putting your health first. Get your screenings, and if you don’t feel like something feels right, go to have it checked and don’t take no for an answer. And have those discussions with other women in your life; you could save theirs.”
