On Behalf of Neighbourhood Dominion Lending Centres Welcome To Our 7th Annual Sales ConferenceIt has been an interesting year since we all had the opportunity to meet at our conference last Septemberat Queens Landing in Niagara-on-the-lake.We have seen some big changes to our industry with the introduction of the new lending rulesimplemented by the international lending community.There were also changes that were set in motion by our federal government which causedCMHC, Genworth and Canada Guaranty to change the lending practices of the insured mortgagesin Canada. There will likely be more changes coming, we will need to understand and embrace themand try to fight them.Lines of credit for high ratio mortgages are now gone and the lenders and insurers have also tightenedup the rules for self-employed clients.Some people will look at these changes as negative, but as mortgage agents and brokers we need tolook at them as positive. We can spread the word that these people are still great clients. We just needto work the deals a little differently than we have over the last five years. These clients also knowthe rules have changed as most have found that their financial institutions have tightened up ontheir business lines of credit.Our conference is designed to help make our market stronger. As we mingle with some of the executivesof our lending partners, underwriters and business development officers, it helps us to understandtheir needs and how we can become more efficient. By working together, we can help them achievelower cost of funds, overhead and can also help them to cross sell other products which will make themmore profitable. As mortgage originators, we do not want to lose any more lenders from our marketplace.It is our vision to encourage strong relationships with our industry partners by bringing themtogether with our teams at events such as thisBuilding bridges through knowledge and mutual respect will create a solid foundation for thegrowth of our future. To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. ~Anatole France~
