Robert is a veteran mortgage broker and industry leader dedicated to the Canadian mortgage brokering industry since 1989.

Four years into his career, Robert cofounded The Mortgage Centre –, where he currently leads a team of mortgage brokers, agents and staff at three locations throughout Durham Region and Northumberland as principal broker.

A true industry pioneer, Robert was recognized nationally with the Pioneer Award from Mortgage Centre Canada in 2010. In 2016, Robert was named an Employer of Choice at the CMP Canadian Mortgage Awards – the Oscars of the Canadian mortgage brokering industry.

Robert’s approachable nature, dedication, honesty and integrity have naturally drawn others to him over the years. He always leads by example, encouraging agents to build and manage their own successful mortgage businesses in a professional and ethical manner.

Robert is dedicated to making a difference in the mortgage brokering landscape in order to benefit consumers by encouraging choice and affordability when it comes to their largest financial investment – their home.

Most recently, he served as an Ontario Director for the industry’s national association, Mortgage Professionals Canada, where he backed lobbying efforts aimed at educating the federal government and discouraging changes to mortgage rules that would negatively impact homeowners – particularly first-time homebuyers feeling squeezed out of the market.

Robert has a giving soul, supporting various charities within his community, including Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers & Sisters and numerous youth sports associations and organizations, in an effort to make Durham Region an even better place to work and live.
