“After the risk and the hard work, it feels great to be recognized by the industry,” says James Laird, President of VERICO Canwise Financial.
James and Bryan Freeman, VP of Canwise, Financial took to the stage on May 12 at the CMA gala to accept a hard earn award for “Best Newcomer, Mortgage Broker Firm”
“To stand out in this industry you need to offer your customers value and efficiency, you need to provide lenders with high quality business at volume, and you need to provide your team with a fun and rewarding place to work. If you can nail all three of these things, then the industry can’t help but notice,” says James.
As for advice to those looking to follow the same path, James says, “to achieve more in this industry you can either work smarter or work harder – either will put you ahead. If you manage to do both, then you will be really far ahead.”
Congratulations to James Laird and Bryan Freeman!
