Commission Advance Program

CENTUM Canada is the only Super Broker in the mortgage industry offering Advance Commissions. The CENTUM Commission Advance Program is fully integrated into Equity Builder, there is no double-entry for the Broker or Agent; the commission advance forms are pre-populated from the transaction information within Filogix.

Daily Electronic Commision Payments

CENTUM Canada simplifies your bookkeeping with daily electronic transfer of commission payments, detailed reports, and timely statements. All commission payments to Franchisees are made the same day commissions are received by CENTUM from lenders. Our Bank, the Toronto Dominion requires two days to process electronic transfers.

Group Medical and Dental Health Benefit Plans

Most Group Medical and Dental Health Benefit Plans require a minimum of 20 participants to qualify for group pricing, but the CENTUM Plans allow for discounted group pricing without the need for minimum participation. These Benefit Plans are available to any CENTUM Network member and their clients. Franchisees have recognized this as a real value-added for their clients because many are self employed or don’t have access to cost-effective coverage.

Here are some features of the Group Medical and Dental Health Benefit Plans:

  1. Three levels of coverage to choose from depending on needs
  2. Direct Pay Cards - no need to pay, submit, and wait for compensation…direct pay cards pay for medical costs right at the source
  3. Out-of-country medical coverage

Independent but not Alone - Intranet, Awards, Marketing Materials, and More

Each CENTUM office is independently owned and operated. This means you maintain control of all daily business decisions; you are not simply an employee of some large corporation. But you are not alone! CENTUM Franchisees benefit from participation in a large network of successful and experienced peers allowing new operators the opportunity to establish best practices even before they open for business. Further, CENTUM Canada provides ongoing operational support. We know that most Franchisees have neither the time nor the expertise to develop the training programs, system support materials, business planning tools, and technology necessary to stay on the cutting edge of the Financial Services industry.
