The team is complete! Welcome Laura Cook.
She’s goal-driven, self-motivated and has a strong commitment to be the best business development manager possible. Her name is Laura Cook, our new BDM for Saskatchewan, Edmonton, central and northern Alberta. With over 10 years of experience in the mortgage industry, Laura is a great and final addition to the sales team. “I’m very excited to combine my passion for sales and alternative lending,” Laura says.
Having started her career as a mortgage broker, Laura learned the fundamental principles of the mortgage industry helping build one of Canada’s top producing brokerage teams. She later became a mortgage underwriter, specializing in alternative lending. Underwriting experience makes Laura an asset to the team as she truly understands the inner-workings of mortgage deals and can provide expert counsel to her brokers. Laura has also dabbled on the consumer side, selling GICs, rounding-off her knowledge nicely.
Laura’s key to success revolves around strong work ethic, expert peers and being grateful for the clients she gets to work with. She strives to find unique ways to help brokers find practical solutions for their clients and being able to consult her fellow BDMs is a benefit – two heads are always better than one!
Originally from Vancouver Island, she moved to Alberta seven years ago. She spent a few years in Calgary and now calls Edmonton home where she fills her free time with volunteering, yoga, painting and biking when the weather allows it.
