Mike Averbach - Accredited Mortgage Professional
Mike Averbach believes in building strong and lasting relationships with his clients. The rapid growth of his company, Averbach Mortgages, is only one of the signposts that he is VERY successful at doing this!
A native Vancouverite, Mike graduated from UBC’s Human Kinetics program. He then went on to receive a post graduate diploma in Information Technology. You might think this to be an unlikely mix, however Mike managed to mesh his passion for fitness, sports and his interest in the Internet by working as a Product Manager on an online casino and sportsbook site.
After two and a half years, the 60+ hour work weeks began to take a toll, so Mike decided to create a business that better fit his lifestyle needs. He had grown up listening to his father make commercial property financing deals, so going into a similar business seemed a natural choice. In 2004 Mike became a licensed Mortgage Broker.
Today, in addition to his own Mortgage Brokerage business, Mike is also involved in his father’s business – Belmont Properties.
Mike and his wife Lisa, are both physically active and are involved in a variety of sports and community events.
Justin Blacklock - Mortgage Manager
Some of you may remember Justin from Kit's High or from SFU's Finance and Economics program. Justin financed himself through University by working at a Super Value Grocery outlet. When he got his degree, the Super Value didn't want to see him go, so they made him an offer he couldn't refuse; a position as General Manager. Years later, seeking a new career, Justin successfully traded stocks online while training to become a mortgage broker.
In addition to over four years of experience as a mortgage broker, Justin brings his experience in financing businesses and in personal investment to the table. He sees himself as an "advocate" working on your behalf to obtain the best deal from the banks and financing companies. His mission is to give Averbach clients great service by saving them money and by coaching them on the basics of making one of the biggest purchases of their life -- their home, or investment properties.
Justin lives in Steveston and spends most of his spare time renovating and landscaping. He also enjoys keeping active on his bike and is a big sports fan!
