Toronto, Ontario – Furthering its dedication to be the top educational training facility for mortgage professionals wanting to specialize in working with high-net-worth clients, Luxury Home Mortgage Group Ltd. is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with top producing DLC mortgage broker, Scott Westlake.
Scott has been in the mortgage industry for over 10 years and is personally responsible for originating over $1 billion in mortgage loans. He specializes in working with luxury homeowners and recently moved his office from Toronto to better serve the needs of affluent clients based in prestigious South East Oakville. Scott has been in the “Top 35 Under 35,” made the “Who’s Hot” list, as well as been active on ILMB podcasts and Next Level Loan Officer, while also hiring and mentoring over 50 new agents.
Scott has opened a commercial and private lending arm, invested in financing solutions for construction financing, and created an identity for himself as a “problem solver” when it comes to complex mortgage solutions for high-net-worth clients. Additionally, he has financed multiple loans for players in the NHL, MLB, MLS, and CFL, as well as worked with artists, entertainers, and top-tier C-level executives.
After researching the market and other available training programs, Scott concluded there are limited options, with many not delivering value for the cost involved. He feels that investing his time in this accreditation is a way to give back to our industry:
“Barriers are too low to enter the mortgage industry and higher standards should be set.
The material covered in this course, along with 12 weeks of mentorship and guidance, provides the education and skills that the industry lacks. Even though the focus is luxury based, I believe the educational component and curriculum will aid any mortgage professional, luxury based or not, with their mortgage career and help them enter the world of larger, more complex mortgages.”
The Luxury Home Mortgage Advisor course is a combination of online training, weekly homework assignments designed to develop new business, and 12-weeks of live “power calls” hosted by Scott Westlake.
“Having weekly check-in calls with a broker of Scott’s caliber is massive” says Roland Mackintosh, CEO of Luxury Home Mortgage Advisor. “As you progress through your training you will no doubt have questions. Having Scott at your fingertips to ask questions about commercial loans or how to structure complicated residential deals will definitely allow mortgage professionals to scale their business quickly”
After completing the 12-week training program, students are required to pass a multiple-choice exam. Graduates are authorized to use Luxury Home Mortgage Advisor logos on all of their marketing materials. In addition, graduates will be added to the Luxury Home Mortgage Advisor Directory, a database that luxury real estate agents will increasingly rely upon to find mortgage professionals that can handle complex mortgage financing.
“Finding the right mortgage professional that I can introduce both my agents and high-net-worth clients to is definitely challenging at times”, says Christopher Invidiata, from Remax The Invidiata Team. “It’s definitely easier to direct them to the Luxury Home Mortgage Advisor website, at least we know these mortgage professionals have invested time and money in furthering their career path and higher education means a lot to my clientele”.
The course has been pre-approved by Mortgage Professionals Canada for 4 CE Units in the
Professional Development category for the year 2019.
