Message From the President
In recent years we have seen a massive overhaul in the global financial system and accordingly, significant changes in mortgage markets. The mortgage industry is not immune to global financial pressures but we at Obsidian have worked hard to make significant strides in our services and solutions for both investing and borrowing clientele.
A testament to Obsidian’s success has been our recent national recognition through Canadian Mortgage Professional as a finalist in the Best Newcomer and Independent Mortgage Broker Firm of the Year, 2010. Our team sees this recognition as a strong indication that we’re on the right path. Going forward, our continued dedication to delivering services that create true value for our clients will be our main goal. With an extremely focused and dedicated team our company looks forward to assertive expansion in the years ahead.
As the performance of stocks, mutual funds, and other securities struggled through the global recession, Obsidian’s Private Mortgage Placement performed above projected targets, with an average annual return of 19%. Alongside The Private Mortgage Placement, Obsidian has introduced a Private Investor Exchange for interested private mortgage investing clientele and our Rock Solid Foundation Programs, developed to assist our borrowing clientele. By introducing these programs, Obsidian is looking to assist clients by allowing them to take full advantage of our wide range of financing/investing solutions.
Also worth noting is the launch of Obsidian’s new Easy Living Solutions, our revised web content, and the anticipated launch of our Consumer Resource Bank.
While Easy Living Mortgage Financing and Investment Clientele Services are a key factor to our success at Obsidian, we also take pride in and actively seek out services to other financial professionals, affiliates, and their clients as we look to expand. If we can continue to provide services that allow brokers to assist their clients it can only build our retrospective business, and allow for mutual success in the future.
Thank you to all our current clients for their continued support and encouraging testimonials, we look forward to assisting you each step of the way.
