Meet your friendly neighbourhood Mortgage Brokers! This week, we’re shining the spotlight on Mortgage Broker, Jim Kennedy.
When did you begin your career in the mortgage industry?
Although I’ve been a long–time client of Blake and his team, I only started my career as a broker 2 months ago!
What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not working with your clients?
When I’m not with clients, I’m busy renovating our home or I’m spending time with my 9 and 10-year-old sons at the soccer field. My whole family is obsessed with soccer, so that’s definitely our happy place.
What’s your favourite thing about working in the mortgage industry?
Although I’ve only been with The Blake Wilson Group for a short time, I’ve been part of securing financing for people starting their dream business, buying their first home or buying investment properties that they previously thought were out of reach.
Playing a role in these key life events has been amazing.
Do you work with a particular clientele?
While I work with clients buying residential homes, my focus is on the commercial side of the business. Business financing, multi–family properties, commercial buildings, and financing for people who are self–employed are my focus areas.
We always ask our clients to tell us about their dream home. Let’s hear about your dream home…what would it be like?
My dream home is a large condo on the Halifax waterfront with a rooftop garden. Little maintenance, in the middle of all the action!
