Abbotsford mortage broker named to Hall of Fame

Geoff Lee of GLM Mortgage Group also receives Hot List Award

Abbotsford’s GLM Mortgage Group has this year been named to the Canadian Mortgage Professionals Hall of Fame and Dominion Lending Centres Hall of Fame.

The business, whose president is Geoff Lee, was also named to the Canadian Mortgage Professionals Hot List and has nominated for two Canadian Mortgage Awards – Mortgage Broker of the Year (for Lee) and Best Customer Service.

The Hall of Fame awards are a huge honour within the industry. There are only a select few selected each year to be inducted, and Lee was among the 2019 inductees.

For the Canadian Mortgage Professional’s Hall of Fame, there are currently only 20 mortgage broker titans included on that list.

The Canadian Mortgage Professionals Hot List Award recognizes forward-thinking pioneers and savvy brokers. Lee is among the 47 individuals named to the list in 2020 for his continued perseverance and dedication to his clients.

This is the sixth year that GLM has been nominated for the Best Customer Service award, winning the award in 2016.

Lee and his team have been named one of the top 75 brokers Canada-wide for the past five years.

In addition to professional recognition this past year, Lee and his wife Kim gained more momentum with their charity foundation, Imani Orphan Care, which currently supports 158 kids and has a staff of 20 in Kenya.

This year, Imani was able to:

• purchase a bus to transport kids to and from the Imani Orphanage

• build its first staff housing building

• build a library for the Imani children to be able to continue to learn and further their education

• celebrate the university graduations of two past Imani children, who received their teaching degrees.
