Centum Financial Group is pleased to announce the addition of two mortgage brokerage firms to its network. The Spooner Group and Kirkwood & Brennan Mortgage Group join over 200 other member offices of the Centum network, which is one of the largest nationwide broker networks in Canada.
The Spooner Group is headquartered in Winnipeg. Founded in 2016 by Tracy Spooner, the 16-person team has over three decades of combined experience in key areas of the real estate industry, including mortgage financing, real estate investing and more. Serving both residential and commercial clients, the Spooner Group is prepared to assist with all stages of the mortgage process, from pre-approval and financing to renewing and refinancing a mortgage. The brokerage offers a number of additional services, including Canadian Home Income Plan (CHIP) reverse mortgages and mortgage insurance.
Prior to starting her own brokerage, Spooner was a mortgage broker with Centum for a number of years. Her return with the Spooner Group is an exciting moment for many of the longtime members of the Centum network.
"Having Tracy and her group leave the organization and then come back once their term was up is a testament to the bonds we strive to build here," says Chris Turcotte, president and chief operating officer at Centum Financial Group. "It feels really good to be able to look someone in the eye and say 'welcome home,' and we couldn't be happier to be working with Tracy and her team again."
Spooner herself adds, "I'm so honored to be back home, where it all started!"
Earlier this month, Centum also welcomed the Kirkwood & Brennan Mortgage Group to its network. The brokerage was founded in 2019 by Keaton Kirkwood and Scott Brennan, and offers a full slate of services to clients looking to purchase, renew, refinance and invest in real estate.
"We're thrilled to have Kirkwood & Brennan and the Spooner Group joining us at Centum," says Turcotte. "Our commitment to supporting our member brokerages and enabling them to best serve their clients helps us draw new members into the fold, and we're always looking for ways to improve our offerings and help them succeed."
