The Canadian Mortgage Hangout is a scheduled weekly hangout where mortgage professionals in Canada discuss stories that affect our industry. #cmhTV (as the hashtag goes) has no affiliation with any one company or organization but is the neutral voice of an online broker community. Gord McCallum and I both participate as weekly hosts and have a lot of fun doing it!
Normally I don't include the Canadian Mortgage Hangout on our #OwnGrowProtect Blog because #cmhTV is focused entirely on the mortgage broker industry. However the last couple weeks we have had a lot of conversation around industry best practices and the content might be relevant for other business professionals. I figured I would share a couple videos and a let you know that we are seeking a nomination for the Canadian Mortgage Awards.
In this episode we discuss the idea of dual licensing. Should one individual be able to hold both a mortgage broker license and a REALTOR® license and practice both at the same time?
As you can tell from the discussion, there is no shortage of one-sided opinions here. What are your thoughts? Would love to hear from you in the comments below!
Referrals & Conflicts of Interest
Different provinces have different legislation on what is considered acceptable payment for referrals. Our conversation focuses on REALTORS@ referring mortgage leads to one source in return for payment, are they then "trading in mortgages"? And are they providing their clients with the best service by doing so?
Love that it took us 15 seconds to realize that we were on air and that Gord came at me when I answered "can't complain" to "how are you doing"? Anyway...
