THE BUCKLEY MORTGAGE BROKER MENTOR ADVANTAGE:
- Hands-on Approach to Coaching
- Decades of Financial Experience
- Established Community & Online Presence
Mortgage Education & Ongoing Coaching
In a world filled with online learning and crowded Zoom training, one-on-one mentorship has real value to offer. Learning from someone with a celebrated background in business mentorship and industry experience can help take your knowledge from textbook to real-world application.
Gerard takes the coaching process very seriously. He views the success of his mentees as his direct responsibility. Will you experience more accountability from this kind of process? Definitely. But having to answer to someone who is already an expert in their field will help you develop the habits you need to take your career further.
But how does the process actually work?
The education begins immediately with the mentee conducting a mock interview as Gerard stands in for the client. From managing application software to handling customer questions and conversations, the mentee is guided until ready to interact with actual home buyers. Throughout the first few appointments, continued assistance and deal proofing set the way for a smooth learning experience. After a hands-on review approach for the first ten deals completed, the commission split will increase – with regular increases to follow at a set schedule.
Have Experience on Your Side
Why choose Gerard as your mentor? For one, he has a lifelong career in finance behind him including time in both investment and real estate centred in Toronto while working nationally and internationally. In recent years, he has focused on mortgage solutions for Simcoe, Grey, and Bruce Counties after moving to the area on a full-time basis. Not only does Gerard have a thorough understanding of property lending, but he has personal knowledge about the unique challenges of migrating north of the GTA.
Being in the industry for decades has also prepared Gerard for weathering hard economic times, having gone through 911, SARS and the financial crises of 2008. Though the current pandemic has brought about new hurdles for both Southern Ontario and the world, working alongside someone who has navigated through uncertainty will help you adopt tactics that lead to stability – even in a crisis.
Don’t Go Alone, Go Far
You know the saying – “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Take your career far by becoming part of a team that is already thriving. Building your own presence and reputation takes time and effort. There are great advantages to joining mortgage mentoring with an established mortgage brokerage; one being that you can devote all your time to learning about creative mortgage solutions as opposed to promotion, advertising and social media management.
Gerard has carefully built every aspect of his community and online image so that Buckley Mortgage Broker is flourishing in both high ratings (including an A+ rating from the BBB of Ontario) and social media presence. Gerard is also proud to be a member of several local business chambers, further expanding the reach of his team.
When you learn under Gerard, you gain access to more than 80 lenders to accommodate each unique application. Enjoy the ability to access multiple offices, allowing you to target clients in a wider range of locations — spanning from Wasaga Beach all the way to Port Elgin.
The team also includes a hand-picked group of hardworking individuals responsible for administrative work and lead follow-up, giving you a head start when it comes to sourcing out new deals.
Mortgage agent Brandon Lacaille says:
“Starting out as a mortgage agent, one of the most important things to prepare yourself is to educate yourself. However knowing where and how to find the information to succeed isn’t black and white, it’s a very broad grey area. You would be pressed to find another broker who offers such an involved mentorship approach to his new agents if you can find another at all.
Not to say other brokerages won’t offer you training, but you will not see the very thorough hands-on approach that Gerard offers. The knowledge and advice that has been provided to me since I joined the Buckley Mortgage Team are absolutely invaluable. If I had the chance to go back and choose a different broker to work with, I would have simply called Gerard sooner.”
Not only does a mentorship with Gerard set you up for success as a mortgage agent, but it allows you to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Buckley Mortgage Broker is proud to support numerous local causes including Cadet programs, The Barbara Weider House and Simcoe/Muskoka YMCA.
