Scott Allan - Mortgage Broker - Centum Pacific Mortgages
Finding a great mortgage can be stressful and time-consuming, but it doesn't have to be… One of the largest mortgage brokerages in the country, CENTUM Canada, is able to deliver the best rates because of our excellent relationships with major banks and lenders.
Finding the right mortgage for you is our business. We know which lenders have the best rates and we negotiate with multiple lenders at one time. What's more, we know the system and have the industry knowledge required to present a proposal for financing to lenders to successfully obtain mortgage financing, and we do all the paperwork. Plus, CENTUM Mortgage Professionals are compensated by the lenders, and in most cases we offer our services free of charge to our clients.
At CENTUM, we're always looking out for your best interest.™
I have been in the mortgage industry since 2008 and my commitment to my clients does not stop when your mortgage funds, that's when it starts. I conduct an annual review of all my client files to see if there are efficiencies that can be found. These reviews can help save thousands and this is something the banks WILL NOT do to help you. I actually get paid by the banks to save you money! My services include:
- Mortgage loans
- Secondary loans
- Commercial loans
- Construction loans
- Recreational property loans
- Lines of credit
- Commerical real estate loans
- Debt consolidation
I have a Business Management Diploma from Kwantlen Polytechnic University as well as a BBA, Bachelor of Business Administration. I am also close to completing an Accounting Diploma and have my Mortgage Broker Certificate from the University of British Columbia.
I am an avid snowboarder, a season pass holder to beautiful Cypress Mountain, as well as a fanatic Canucks fan. I love volunteering, travelling and spending time with family and friends. I am a movie buff and enjoy playing with computers.
I was born and raised in Langley, BC and have extensive family and friends in the Okanagan Valley, Manitoba (Duglad & Winnipeg), Alberta (Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary), Regina and Toronto. I maintain close connections with the communities of Langley, Kelowna, Winnipeg and Vancouver through volunteering and lots of family and friends.
I have a real passion for animals! I bred American Staffordshire Terriers for years and have brought 44 tiny puppies into the world and placed them into loving homes :) I also am a big movie buff... If it's been released since 1990 chances are good I have seen it! My all time favourite still stands at Shawshank Redemption, but Forest Gump is another I could watch again and again (honourable mentions: Fight Club, Titanic, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Silence of the Lambs, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, Indiana Jones, Braveheart, Goodfellas.... I could go on)
I have been in the mortgage industry since 2008 when I worked in the Real Estate and Mortgage Broker Department at the Financial Institutions Commission; the government agency that regulates the mortgage industry. For many years I dedicated myself to making sure consumers in BC were protected from fraudulent mortgage schemes and unscrupulous brokers. I am also very proud of the work I did helping set up the continuing education requirements that all mortgage brokers must now adhere to, to keep their skills sharp and keep abreast of the latest industry trends and legislative changes.
I am a member of the Mortgage Broker Association of British Columbia and a proud Kwantlen Polytechnic University Alumni. Outside of the office I adore volunteering; I am a Big Brother and a volunteer for the Salvation Army and the Covenant House, a shelter for homeless youth in Vancouver. My professional interests include:
- Real estate investment & development
- Commercial real estate
- Financial planning
- Computer technology
- Stock trading
