Mortgage Education & Ongoing Coaching
As you embark on your mortgage education, learning from a manual or textbook can only take you so far. Ongoing mentorship will allow you to fully develop your career. Gerard takes the coaching process very seriously and has years of experience successfully training new recruits. From his days in the military to his days at Scotia Capital, he has been successfully leading teams. He views the success of his mentees as his direct responsibility. Being accountable and having access to a highly experienced mentor will allow you to build up the necessary skills to further your career.
“Gerard’s perseverance and integrity are qualities that he brings to work every day, and he always offers the opportunity, encouragement and support to achieve success. Even after all of these years, I still utilize some of the management skills I learned while working for Gerard. To this day, I benefit from the leadership he provided many years ago and he still remains a trusted friend and mentor”
says Jeff Blanco, Managing Director and Head of Foreign Exchange, Canaccord Genuity Corp.
“Having Gerard in your corner gives you the confidence to test your abilities; he’s always ready to offer encouragement and guidance as you build your career. His commitment to coworkers and clients is genuine and his authenticity has been inspiring”
says Mirka Macalik, Executive Recruitment Consultant
Prior to engaging with home buyers, the mentee is guided through the process by a series of mock interviews. From managing application software to handling customer questions and conversations, the mentee will go through an extensive introduction with Gerard. 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, his career in finance includes time in both investment banking and real estate centred in the Toronto area. In recent years, he has focused on mortgage solutions for Simcoe, Grey and Bruce Counties after moving to the area on a fulltime 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 difficult economic times, having gone through 9/11, SARS and the financial crisis of 2008. Though COVID19 brings about new hurdles, working alongside someone who has navigated through uncertainty will help you adopt tactics that lead to stability even in a pandemic.
Be Part of a Team that is Thriving
Building your own brand and reputation takes time and effort. There are great advantages to joining a mentor with an established mortgage brokerage: one being that you can devote all of your time to learning about creative mortgage solutions rather than focusing on promotion, advertising and social media management. Gerard has carefully built every aspect of his community and online image so that The Buckley Mortgage Team 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 Mortgage Wellness.
With Gerard as your mentor, you gain access to more than 85 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 to Port Elgin. The Mortgage Wellness team 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 new deals.
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. Mortgage Wellness is proud to support numerous local causes including Cadet programs, The Barbara Weider House and Simcoe/Muskoka YMCA.
