award 19 broker of the year fewer than 25 employees

Brokerage of the Year (Fewer than 25 Employees)

“We try to think about the client and the user experience. If you treat people how you want to be treated, the circle just continues” – James Loewen, Loewen Group Mortgages

 

Loewen Group Mortgages is no stranger to winning a CMA. Guided by a “constant, consistent and conservative” approach to growth, the brokerage earned its fourth award this year by sticking to its guns and working as a team to provide the best possible service to clients.

Based on Loewen Group’s targeted approach to continual improvement, this likely won’t be its last award. “We always get together and review what we’re doing,” says owner James Loewen. “As soon as you think you are doing the best you can do, you have to sharpen your blade a little bit more. We always want to be innovating and changing and just try to stay ahead of the pack.”

Shining the spotlight on smaller brokerages is key to moving the industry forward, says John Bargis, vice-president of Mortgage Edge and a founding member of event sponsor CIMBC. “Everybody has got to start somewhere. [My advice to smaller brokerages] is it’s really about managing your business and focusing on managing your business versus letting your business manage you.”
