Waze Back to ‘A’ Credit

Re-surfacing from the hardships that 2020 saw, has made it difficult to find the best “exit strategy” back to greener pastures (from B or Private Lenders back to the A world) for your client. Individuals who may have had strong credit are now feeling the pinch because they may not show enough income and are unable to meet debt servicing guidelines because of a reduction of income due to circumstances beyond their control.

As we have seen this past year, life can hit your clients in unexpected ways. In this event, we will discover some new Waze to solve your client’s situation and guide them back to a route that will repair their credit quickly.


Speakers & Topics

Eric Poblete – Equifax: How are we dealing with fraud during a pandemic? How can we mitigate risks with uploading files to the Cloud? How long does bad credit stay on a bureau once paid? Eric Poblete joins us from Equifax and will explain all this and more!

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.

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.
