London-based mortgage professional recognized as industry elite performer

Mortgage Magnates and M|M University’s president and CEO Chris Baker has made this year’s Canadian Mortgage Professional Hot List

Online PR News – 12-February-2021 – Toronto, ON – A London-based mortgage professional has just been recognized in a prestigious list of the most innovative minds the industry has to offer.

Mortgage Magnates and M|M University’s president and CEO Chris Baker has been included in the annual Hot List report released by Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine, celebrating the 53 mortgage professionals who survived the twists and turns of 2020, turning difficult situations into extraordinary opportunities.

Baker took a long and winding road to the helm of Mortgage Magnates and M|M University, an online streaming and lifelong learning platform for North American mortgage professionals, which gives him an opportunity to put his background in radio and TV broadcasting to use and deliver truly unique service. “Our biggest differentiator is our lack of affiliation with any particular company,” Baker says. “We are steadfastly loyal to our ‘Brokers Helping Brokers’ model and bring in top mortgage professionals from across North America to teach how they became top performers to our membership of both new and veteran mortgage pros so they can benefit from that success. Being brandagnostic means everyone can benefit from each other, not just one particular group.”

“A roller coaster of a year, 2020 started out calm, and most experts were predicting a stable market throughout the year. But by the end of February, COVID-19 had arrived in Canada, and everything seemed to go off the rails. In March and April, lockdowns left Canadians scrambling to prepare for the worst. With many out of work and struggling to make ends meet, mortgage deferrals were granted, the Bank of Canada dropped its key lending rate to 0.25%, and corporations implemented remote work policies. By summer, things had shifted yet again,” says the editorial team at Canadian Mortgage Professional. “The 53 mortgage professionals selected for CMP’s 2021 Hot List all managed to lead by example and make the best of out of the chaos of 2020. Whether launching their own businesses or starting a new charity, mentoring new employees or recruiting new personnel, these 53 individuals all pushed themselves to greater heights over the past 12 months – and they’re well positioned for even more success in 2021.”
