There are many great things about working with Smartline, but the one I appreciate the most would be the work-life balance. I have young children who need me around, so having my business means I can do school drop off and pick up and even attend those special occasions like school concerts and carnivals. I can work whenever it suits me which is a rare luxury for many.

I’m inspired by the feeling of contentment I get when I help a client. For example, I was recently able to help a client who had been through a divorce and didn’t think she would be able to afford to buy a house on her own. But, we made it happen and that helped her to move on and be independent, which was fantastic. 

Thank goodness COVID happened in 2020 when we have such amazing tools at our disposal so that we can easily and cheaply have online meetings! I couldn’t have continued my business this year without these resources. 

For anyone who is considering becoming a Smartline Franchisee I would simply say, “Do it!” Smartline have a very strong focus on family, which is important to me. There is also a huge amount of support between franchisees, which makes you feel like you are part of something bigger. I wouldn’t want to be a mortgage broker anywhere else!

My favourite quote: 

Wake up with determination, go to bed with satisfaction.
