“I was looking for support from a Network to independently grow my business – quickly VERICO became the clear  choice”

Vancouver, BC – Based in Saskatoon, SK, The Mortgage Associates joins VERICO this fall, looking to expand the brokerage. Principal broker Shawna MacDonald signed with the network earlier in 2016, and is one of the newest members who have added to the spectacular growth experienced by VERICO this year.

It was extremely important for Shawna to keep a high level of independence and control when it came to her brand and her business. “I chose VERICO because I wanted the freedom and support to operate my own business and take it in the direction that I envision.  After 15 years of experience, I believe I know my market very well – so I wanted to ensure I would have the tools to strengthen my market presence and continue to be successful prior to making the decision to change.”

After extensive research on what other networks had to offer, VERICO quickly became the evident choice.  Shawna elaborates that “VERICO offers its members some excellent services and their executive team proves time and time again that they are ahead of the curve in this dynamic industry.”

“In The Mortgage Associates, we see the potential for a lot of growth in the next 5 years,” says Chad Dreyer, Director of Business Relations for VERICO Western Canada. “They are a highly professional team with excellent knowledge of their customer and market – it is hard to beat that combination.”

By her own experiences, Shawna believes that building a close-knit group of quality employees is key to maintaining “the incomparable customer service and forward-thinking business practices” that will ensure The Mortgage Associates is always on top.
