Veteran BC Brokers Moira Steele and Kevan Ibbotson Join Tudor Mortgage Architects

NANAIMO, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - John Parker is pleased to welcome Moira Steele and Kevan Ibbotson, the powerhouse Micasa Mortgage Team, to Tudor Mortgage Architects, bolstering the company's presence in Nanaimo and all of Vancouver Island.

"We are so pleased to welcome Moira and Kevan to Tudor Mortgage Architects," said Parker. "Micasa Mortgage has a stellar reputation in the marketplace and their deep experience in both retail and commercial mortgages will greatly bolster our market presence and the value we can bring to our clients and referral sources."

Moira and Kevan will join Tudor Mortgage Architects as "Your Micasa Team". Moira Steele launched the Micasa name in 1997 and, with Kevan joining the company in 2002, together they built a highly successful business based primarily on referrals from satisfied customers and referral sources.

"There are many synergies and economies of scale to be realized by working together," said Parker. "The Nanaimo storefront office gives us the infrastructure to expand and a larger database in which to build our brand."

"We also found many positive advantages," said Ibbotson. "We gain access to myNext Mortgage Company, and we can use John Parker's existing business management to go back to what we both want to focus on, and that's simply working with our clients." Both Kevan and Moira's going forward goals include taking more time off with their families and getting back to the basics of meeting clients' needs. "We don't want to worry about the day-to-day headaches of running a business," said Kevan. "We just want to work with our clients."

The visionary leadership of Bob Ord and the known management team at Mortgage Architects was another factor in the decision for Moira and Kevan to join forces with John Parker.

With two storefronts in Vancouver and this new office in Nanaimo, Tudor Mortgage Architects is well positioned for future growth. "This is just fantastic news for Tudor Mortgage Architects. We look forward to delivering more value to our customers and contributing to the exceptional growth of Mortgage Architects in Western Canada," said Parker.
