We have decided to take our show on the road and bring our ever popular half day symposium to the Crowne Plaza Hotel 105 King St E, Kitchener, ON N2G 2K8!

Surviving The Industry, September 28th


Betty Talbot of Centum Omni will speak about her 30+ years of success and obstacles in our ever changing industry.

Commercial Appraiser, James Griesbaum of City Management & Appraisals will discuss the current market place and where values may head in the future as interest rates rise, along with the “Baby Boomer” affect on values.

Paul McGill, President of The Financing HubOpportunities in Commercial Mortgages, Regulatory changes continue to restrict the residential mortgage market, while the commercial mortgage market grows unabated. Investor money, once pouring into the residential market as direct investors and within the private MICs, is now starting to refocus on small and mid-market commercial opportunities. A number of commercial lenders are building up their positions in this smaller/mid-market segment. With this, there are new opportunities opening up for brokers and agents to expand their business and replace revenues lost to the regulators; replacing it with new commercial focuses.

This session explores these and other areas relevant to those residential brokers looking to make moves into the commercial real estate financing sector.
