Karen Wotherspoon is a customer focussed mortgage lending professional with over 23 years of experience in the financial services industry. She shines in helping people make their home ownership dreams come true and finds that silver lining when working through difficult client situations.
Karen takes great care in getting to know the personal story of her clients and their financing needs, and is committed to finding the right solution for them. She specializes in helping first time home buyers, new immigrants to Canada as well as clients who are self-employed and arranges mortgages for purchases, refinances, renewals & transfers as well as reverse mortgages.
One of her most rewarding experiences, albeit a personally difficult situation for her, was advising a friend with cancer that she had the right mortgage insurance coverage but was unaware that she didn’t have to make mortgage payments while she was off work fighting the disease.
Karen holds a Bachelor of Commerce Honours degree from the University of Guelph, double majoring in management and economics. She has also achieved the Accredited Mortgage Professional certification from Mortgage Professionals Canada, a national mortgage broker industry association.
