SINGLE IDEA.

About VERICO


VERICO began with a single idea - to unite top mortgage originators in Canada and create additional opportunities and value for this group of highly driven professionals and together, make a mark on the Canadian mortgage industry.

In 2005, the journey began with a single member in Vancouver, BC.

Then, slowly but surely, word of our network - our ideals - spread and our membership grew along with our reputation.

Two years later, the VERICO network went national with members in every province from coast to coast.

In 2010, the VERICO network reached $10 billion in collective loan volume, a number that rivalled the mortgage business of big 5 banks.

Today, over 200 mortgage business owners and entrepreneurs share these ideals and choose to be a part of the VERICO Network.

Operating at the highest degree of professionalism, excellence and ethical standards, we originate over 12 billion and counting.

The Story

VERICO Management Team

VERICO was founded by Colin Dreyer and John Kelly.

Each was an industry leader in his own right having been at the helm of many successful businesses in real estate and mortgage.

Real Estate Association and Past Director of the Canadian Real Estate Association.

Colin is a graduate of the Professional Development Program from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia (SFU). He combined his interest in business and his enthusiasm for personal development and began a highly successful sales career that ultimately resulted in ownership of various companies including mortgage brokerage, real estate brokerage and franchising, as well as real estate development.

Colin Dreyer

Colin established one of British Columbia's premier mortgage companies in 1990 - The Mortgage Source Ltd. - which was amalgamated with Invis Financial in June 2000.

The Story

Our People

Members of the VERICO network have a reputation second to none.

VERICO members are top producers that take pride in our core pillars of excellence, professionalism and ethical standards; as a result, we have earned a reputation that is respected and admired in the industry.

Our members give back. They provide their time and leadership at Provincial and National mortgage associations. Many are trusted experts that are regularly interviewed by the media for their opinions and insights.

Calum Ross

VERICO The Mortgage Management Group
Member since 2012
My Reason
“Joining VERICO was the best decision for my brokerage, as VERICO brings the right support elements to the table yet lets its brokers shine and operate under their own unique branding and business models. VERICO has a visionary and highly ethical leadership team, industry-leading marketing tools, and finally, an engrained commitment to continually improve its offerings and to stand behind them. It sends a clear message to the broker industry that VERICO has one-year renewable contracts, with the point to not lock brokers in, but convert them to self-subscribing loyal customers through delivery on its service promise.”

Sabeena Bubber

VERICO Integré Mortgage Partners
Member since 2009
My Reason
“Since joining VERICO, my success as a broker has been remarkably elevated, not only with my clients, but also among my peers.

I think that it is critically important for mortgage brokers to be recognized for our professionalism, our pursuit of excellence and our ethical standards. VERICO stands for all of this and more.”

Jared Dreyer

VERICO Dreyer Group Mortgage Inc.
Member since 2005
My Reason
“VERICO is at the forefront of business innovation and is a true leader in this industry. The tools, technology and support that has come as a result, has helped our business stay competitive in today's ever changing market.

As the most trusted and respected mortgage network, VERICO continues to enhance and grow their broker network through setting the highest standards in every aspect of their business philosophy.”

Garth Ellis

VERICO Ellis Mortgages Canada
Member since 2005
My Reason
“The same reasons that compelled me to join VERICO 7 years ago are the same reasons that keep me with the VERICO network today:

+ Association with the most respected mortgage professionals in Canada
+ My trust in VERICO’s management
+ Confidence that VERICO is dedicated to help me row my business.”

Don MacVicar

VERICO Premiere Mortgage Centre
Member since 2007
My Reason
“My reasons for joining the VERICO network have been reinforced year after year. I chose to associate myself and my team with the best and most respected in the industry. VERICO continues to add tremendous value with "best in class" technology, sales tools and Lender relationships. We would not have had the same levels of success without the VERICO team in our corner!"

The Story

President's Letter

One of the most gratifying parts of my job is to watch the successes that the VERICO network has collectively achieved year after year.

In 2005, when we created VERICO, the concept of a true network of mortgage brokers did not exsist in the industry.

There were the superbrokers and franchises, but VERICO aspired to be neither.



VERICO aspired to create a partnership between lenders and mortgage brokers that created mutual opporunties for success.

This single idea of a network of peers, operating our businesses with a steadfast commitment to professionalism, excellence and ethical standards, continues to set us apart to this day. We continue to attract the top professional originators and influential companies in Canada who share our principles and want to grow their business, their brand, their way.

Our commitment to VERICO members’ individual business growth and brand equity is stronger than ever.

Our commitment to quality and excellence remains unwavering.

This is an exciting and rewarding industry with lots of opportunity for those who have the experience, the talent and the drive.

Over and over again, brokers and business owners who talk to us and explore the opportunities with VERICO come away surprised and impressed.

I encourage you to talk to us. And find out why VERICO is the #1 mortgage brokerage network in Canada.

My Life is Better with VERICO

You have the experience, the talent, and the drive.

8:10 AM

Coffee in hand, kids off to school and I’m ready to start the day. After I’ve check my emails, I take a look at my Veriweb site, which only took me 10 mins to create. I make some adjustments to the widgets and make the key ones pop to my website visitors. I also hop over to VERICO Magazine to check out the latest mortgage and real estate news and this month’s VERICO TV episode.

VeriwebVERICO Mortgage Magazine

8:32 AM

I check the lead that came in through Veriweb last night to my Verico Dynamics account. Because I can access the Dynamics system from my Outlook, it’s really easy to keep an eye on my current deals and run reports on renewals that are coming up in the next 6 months. Direct from Outlook, I send an email to the lead to set up a phone meeting.

VeriwebVerico Dynamics

9:40 AM

A long time client of mine is now buying a cottage in the Muskoka area but has a big mortgage on a commercial building. Another VERICO member might have the answer I need. I will just post my question on VERICO Talks. I’ll also log into VERICO Sharepoint and use our Lender Vault tool to narrow down lender options.

VERICO TalksVERICO Sharepoint

10:30 AM

I’ve logged into VERICO Tools and I’m prepping some feature sheets for an 11:00 appointment. This was a referral from my realtor so I will customize the Feature Sheets with her photo and logo. I’ll create a ‘Lifetime Comparison’ , ‘Fixed vs Variable’ and the ‘basic Interest vs Principal’ sheet. If I need more, I can always access VERICO Tools at the coffee shop and show the client right on my laptop.

VERICO Tools

11:10 AM

Meeting with clients is going great. They want to submit an app now, so I open VERICO Mobile Office on my iPad and fill it out with them. While we chat, I've also emailed the link to my Mobile Agent app to their phones. If they want to check rates or do a mortgage calculation, they can do it on their phones. It’s like having my own branded mortgage toolbox on my client's phone!

VERICO Mobile Office

12:15 PM

After the meeting I open my Verico Dynamics account from my Outlook and add my new clients to my Verico Dynamics CRM marketing. They will not only get birthday and seasonal emails automatically but also mortgage application status notifications – this truly is a complete mortgage business management system.

Verico Dynamics

12:48 PM

Just finished a phone call to the lead that came through Veriweb last night. It’s a first time home buyer wanting a pre-approval. I’ll place this deal with one of VERICO’s preferred lenders. I can offer a competitive rate and great product features for this couple.

Veriweb

1:28 PM

VERICO Academy webinar is starting in 2 minutes. This one is on industry stats, market outlook for rest of the year and ideas on how to adapt my marketing strategies. Should be chock full of ideas.

Verico Academy

2:22 PM

While at VERICO Academy, I’ll check out the last ‘Hear from the Pros’ recorded session on unique marketing ideas. Hear from the Pros always has great insights and perspectives.

Verico Academy

3:30 PM

Coming up to the middle of the month. This is usually the time when I start prepping my newsletter. Shouldn’t take too long once I find the VERICO at Home newsletter template in my emails from head office. Just update my bio and put in an additional article I found on VERICO Sharepoint and it’s done!

My Reason
“I joined VERICO because I liked the business model; it’s simple, straight-forward, and just makes plain business sense.

Member since 2012
My Reason
“Northwood Mortgage Ltd. has been a long time independent company and we joined VERICO for many important reasons.

Many lenders commented on the quality of the people involved in the Network; and that reputation has strengthened our own relationships with lender partners. VERICO's CRM and other technologies have also allowed us to concentrate on our core business. We are extremely satisfied with our move to the Network and we only look forward to growing our relationship with VERICO."

Nick L'Ecuyer

My Reason
“I know I am surrounded by the best team of mortgage professionals from coast to coast, because I am part of the VERICO network. VERICO’s principals are second to none and it is reassuring to know that I am part of a network of elite performers in the industry.

VERICO offers the freedom to be independent, but I still get all the benefits of a large respected organization which allows me to lead in my local market and provide my clients with the absolute best solution for their individual needs.”

My Reason
“The mortgage industry is changing quickly and we want to be associated with professionals who understand how these dynamics affect our business. The leadership at VERICO is well respected and they provide us with tremendous guidance in uncertain times.

Being a part of the VERICO team means surrounding ourselves with experienced professionals who can assist in growing our business through a continually evolving financial landscape.”
