Charity & Referrals

With a continually changing real estate marketplace, working with a great mortgage broker can be the difference between obtaining a mortgage and not. From navigating lending during the global COVID-19 pandemic to multiple rate changes and policy changes, surrounding yourself with the right lending partner is critical.

With all that has happened in 2020, now more than ever, is a time to establish a long term strategy to make a habit of giving back to those in need.

As a group, we have decided to pick a charitable organization at the start of each month. Then, at the end of each month, we add up all the reviews & referrals made to our Mortgage Brokerage and make a contribution to a local charitable organization as a percentage of revenue earned. The more reviews & reviews the higher the percentage.

We will select one charity per month and make the contribution and post it on our blog along with the organizations information. If you are a client or referral source of our brokerage and have an organization thats important to you and yours and it could use a little push, please let Scott know scott@thewestlaketeam.com

Since referrals and reviews are the lifeline of our business, we believe that by encouraging these activities that allow our business to grow, it naturally allows us to give even more. Reviews & referrals are easy for us to track and something clients and referral sources naturally do when satisfied with the services we provide.

In addition, for each review & referral made, we will provide a token of appreciate from a local business.

We believe that this program will create a sense of accountability and corporate culture that encourages giving back, while inspiring those around us. This program allows us to support charitable organizations & local businesses – important to our team, clients and referral sources while rewarding the behaviour.
