f o S R E WN O E H T FROM ns E o i G t u A l o S S S ge a g t A ME r o M Quantus 2016 was a year of huge challenges, but also great accomplishments. We saw more regulatory changes in the year, than any of the past twenty. Sometimes we wondered if the mortgage industry would ever recover from the massive changes implemented this past year! Not only did our team recover, they found new ways to conduct business as they always have. They continued to convey the message that in these difficult, complicated times, that now, more than ever, consumers need the advice of an experienced professional regarding such a complicated process. Of course, Quantus Mortgage Solutions has an overabundance of wealth when we're talking experience and professionalism. And for those on the team who may not have two decades or more in the industry, our team bonded together like no other year to share their experiences and the paths they had discovered in this ever changing landscape.
The energy our team exudes, combined with the amazing culture our entire industry sees became quite contagious in 2016. We were honoured to welcome 19 associates to the Quantus team this year from all parts of Alberta. A commonality among all our new hires was the recognition of the reputation of QMS and its team members and how each of them saw a fit somewhere in the culture QMS has developed over the years. One of the pillars of that culture is being involved, and giving back within our community. There are countless hours donated from our team members on various charities, fundraisers, community associations, and team sports. Nowhere is this more evident however, than the team's involvement with the charity we founded - Community Key. This past year Community Key went from an idea pitched at a meeting a couple years ago, to a fullfledged, operating concern. We were blessed to help our first couple families just this past December with the
response of those involved with meeting the families priceless. Our team's ongoing involvement in the mortgage industry allowed us to form a partnership with the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association that resulted in over $25,000 being raised through the association alone this year. With our commitment of contributing a donation to every mortgage funded at Quantus, combined with other fundraising efforts, the charity is soon to pass $100,000 raised since inception just a short while ago. Our success over the years would not be possible without the great partnerships we've forged with our lender and insurance partners. This very large, diverse group takes the time to educate our team, address any questions we have, and work with individuals to help them grow their own business. They also participate in the many events we hold each year so that everyone gets the chance to know
each other just a little more. And of course, our partners are very generous in sponsoring our various meetings, events, and parties throughout the year in addition to contributing to Community Key. Every event you see in this magazine was sponsored by some of our lender partners, and we could not hold the high quality events we host each year without their assistance. We're excited for all the new opportunities 2017 will bring. We look forward to working with all our past clients and referral sources to be the expert in everything mortgage related. Our planning for 2017 involves some great events and initiatives we can't wait to share! Wishing you all the best as we start a new year of growth and possibility. Paul Bojakli & Todd Fralic
