Review of Cambridge PD!

In the mortgage industry, it is becoming more difficult to find the best “exit strategy” back to greener pastures (from B or Private Lenders back to the A world) for your client. With the addition of the Government Stress Test, individuals with strong credit are now feeling the pinch because they may not show enough income and are unable to meet debt servicing guidelines.

What is the Best Solution for Your Client’s Situation & Fastest Route to Repair Their Credit? Life can hit your clients in unexpected ways. In this symposium, we will educate brokers and agents on how to repair and choose the right solution to get their borrowers back to A rates.


Speakers & Topics

Vesna Spehar- CMHC:  Vesna Spehar from CMHC will offer updates on the current market & mortgage industry.

Eric Poblete – Equifax: How long does bad credit stay on a bureau once paid? Eric Poblete joins us from Equifax and will explain how to understand your client’s credit bureau. He will provide examples on how long the bad credit will follow your client before it falls off.

Wes CowanMNP: Joining us from MNP, Wes Cowan will educate you on their process prior to placing a client into consumer proposal or bankruptcy and explain the different steps of advice to remedy a client’s financial situation.

Ross Taylor – Concierge Mortgage Group: Your client has bad credit, can it ever be repaired? Ross Taylor from Concierge Mortgage Group will explain how to repair the beacon score after the consumer proposal is paid. There are always errors affecting the beacon score. Through a review of several case studies, you will learn the process of fixing the errors and show the beacon score increase.

Thank you for putting it all together! This was by far (for me) the best content I have seen. Kudos to you and the entire CMBA team 🙂

Thank you for the morning. I thought it was wonderful. I am AIC. I appreciated the speakers and the hugs from old buds but most of all I treasure the fact that we all sat together in one room with many different attitudes and ways of seeing things. It was wonderful for the brokers and the lenders and the appraisers to share and learn each others views. I have been designated since 1983 and do not remember ever having had such a rewarding morning professionally.  Please let us do this more often.
Thank you very much for allowing me to be in that enlightening atmosphere.
