Growth Momentum for Mortgage Architects in Calgary Continues to Be Strong With the Signing of Jacqui Mulikow

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2009) - Mortgage Architects is pleased to welcome Jacqui Mulikow and her powerful team of associate planners, increasing the company's presence and market share in Western Canada.

Mulikow, with a rich financial services background, spent 20 years with major Canadian financial institutions, primarily as a mortgage specialist and for a short time as a financial planner, before becoming an independent mortgage consultant in 2004, a move Mulikow calls "amazing."

"I found the move to be an independent broker relatively easy because I maintained a very strong rapport with my network of financial planners," said Mulikow, whose number one source of business continues to be from financial planners.

"That planning model is one of the reasons I moved to Mortgage Architects," says Mulikow. "I don't want my business transactional, but rather my goal is to be focused on my existing clients and offer them tailored information and advice." Other reasons Jacqui cites for making the move include the exclusivity of Mortgage Architects, the quality of people and information, and Bob Ord's reputation in the industry and his ability to always negotiate the best for his brokers.

Jacqui's going forward goals include getting back to basics with her clients, strengthening relationships with referral sources, and nurturing her team of associates, all of whom have strong and varied backgrounds. The team includes associates: Jerry Schindel, Laura Broad, Taz Rajan, Jo Gilbert, Travis Kulasekere, Bill Schmitt, Tom Daumler, Murray O'Donovan, Tony Piattell, Milica Legault, and administrator Charlene Varze.

"Having the powerhouse Mulikow team join Mortgage Architects is fantastic and a testament to the strength of our value propositions," said Meinhard (Meini) Ickert, Vice President of Western Canada for Mortgage Architects. "Our expansion and achievements are incredible and there is still so much more to come; it's very exciting."
