Jivan Sanghera graduated from Brock University with a degree in Business Economics and Labour Studies. While selling appliances at a Maytag store, Jivan met Val Martin. She then helped him with the transition to his current role. Jivan was the youngest business development manager ever hired by MCAP Mortgage Corporation. In April 2005, Jivan made the switch to becoming an independent broker. He is one of the CMP Magazine‘s Top 20 Small Market Mortage Brokers in Canada.

Jivan shares how mentoring has brought him to where he is today, and how he transitioned from working in a real estate office to owning his own office.
