Erica Ma has been a proactive and enthusiastic member of the Canadian mortgage brokering industry for 15+ years, most recently joining TMG The Mortgage Group as an Area Vice President.
Passionate about helping mortgage brokers grow their businesses, Erica quickly went from becoming a licensed broker to a business development manager at First National Financial. Working with brokers better aligned with her aspiration for training and building lifelong relationships to help others meet their business goals.
As a BDM, Erica trained new brokers on effective deal packaging, helped structure files and offered solutions that led to more closed deals.
After eight years with First National, Erica embraced a new challenge with CMHC where she managed bank and credit union corporate accounts. This enabled her to continue on her chosen path of training and business development, but this time through the bank channel.
Erica missed working with mortgage brokers so she returned to First National for another five years before joining TMG’s management team in 2021, where she not only helps brokers, but also gives back to the community through TMG’s charity of choice, Breakfast Club of Canada. Erica also led a recent TMG blood drive to help replenish the supply shortage fuelled by the pandemic.
A dedicated champion of women, Erica also generously spends any spare time mentoring new industry members whenever possible, regardless of how stretched she already is as a professional and mother. She finds mentoring incredibly rewarding as it empowers her to have a positive impact on people’s career growth and life, which also helps fuel the future of the Canadian mortgage brokering landscape.
Erica’s also an active contributor to the Women in the Mortgage Industry online form, where she creates and posts helpful videos that provide insight and value to her peers.
