Top mortgage broker Sharnjit Singh Gill up for Mortgage Broker of the Year Award

TOP Mortgage Broker Sharnjit Singh Gill has been nominated for this year’s Mortgage Broker Award (fewer than 25 employees’ category).
“It’s a great feeling to be recognized at the national level,” Gill said.
Gill, President and CEO of Surrey-based Verico Superior Mortgage Inc., has been in the banking and mortgage business for 49 years, beginning his career in 1969 at UCO Bank in India. In 1995 he relocated his family to Surrey and a year later he joined the Bank of Montreal.
Gill became sub-mortgage broker in 2001.
His is a small family business with daughter Mani Gill, son Raj Gill and daughter-in-law Jasdeep Gill.
He characterizes it as “a small team of 4 but power of one” and adds that this is one of the reasons for the small team’s outsized success. He has a 94% funding ratio, and given the pride with which Gill submits files, it’s no wonder he’s being recognized.
“We believe in quality work,” says Gill. “We educate our clients. I educate each client so that they have a lot of information and know every feature. I spend about one hour on each client in our meetings. When I educate my client, the benefit to me is they become my investor and I get a lot of referrals. They make informed decisions.
“I don’t waste underwriters’ time. If we doubt anything, we drop the client. We always try to find solutions to my clients’ problems, and, in turn, they are happy and satisfied.”
Gill’s hard work is what Tim Duce, President and CEO of Key Media International, the Canadian Mortgage Awards’ parent company, says the awards show strives to recognize each and every year. The 12th annual CMAs, to be held April 20 at the Liberty Grand in Toronto, will showcase winners from a slew of categories.
The VOICE wishes him good luck for the Award.
