Ellis Mortgages Canada: Industry Innovator, Garth Ellis Wins First Ever "Broker of the Year" Award

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 19, 2007) - Ellis Mortgages Canada, is pleased to announce that our President, Garth Ellis, has been honored with the prestigious "Broker of the Year" award from Canadian Mortgage Professional. The CMP Canadian Mortgage Awards are the premier industry event recognizing excellence and achievement in the Canadian mortgage industry.

"Canadians have been turning to Mortgage Brokers for guidance when negotiating their real estate assets for over 30 years," said Garth Ellis, President, Ellis Mortgages Canada. "The fact that Ellis Mortgages Canada is recognized as the first in the long history of the industry to receive this honor, underscores what we have been saying for years. Making the mortgage process simple while saving our client's time and money will help ordinary Canadians keep more money in their pocket and give them more time to spend on the finer things in life. We are proud to be recognized for our contributions to the industry."

Competition for this coveted award was fierce. Years of experience gained in processing more than 10,000 mortgages has culminated in Garth being singled out of thousands of brokers across Canada.

To be recognized, companies must be nominated in one of 12 categories by their peers in the industry. They must then complete a comprehensive questionnaire that serves as an in-depth analysis which enables the independent judging panel to assess and examine candidates' management practices. The panel evaluates how companies and/or individual brokers address various business challenges such as new business development, industry involvement, sales methodology and customer service.

Announcement of the winners in each category took place at an "Oscars" style gala on Friday, February 16, 2007 at the Liberty Grand Hotel in Toronto, Ontario.
