Hello. I’m Scott Peckford.  I’m a Husband, Father, Mortgage Broker, Author, Podcaster, and a Coach.

I founded the I love Mortgage Brokering podcast so I could be a better broker. I share the information with you so that you can do the same.

Mortgage Background

     I have been a Mortgage Broker since 2006 working with a few different companies however most recently, my business partner and I run CME Kelowna and have an office in Kelowna BC.

     I like creative problem solving and I absolutely love being an entrepreneur. In 2010 I wrote my first book, “How to Rob Your Bank.” It is a guide for Canadians looking for mortgages. And after the ILMB podcast had some success my team and I had a lot of fun putting on events (BrokerTalks) in 2016 and created a premier coaching program (10 Realtor Program) in 2018 using everything we’ve learned interviewing over 200 top producers in both the US and Canada.

About Me

     I love a quote I once read on a T-Shirt, “May your life someday be as awesome as you pretend it is on Facebook.” I think a lot of ‘about’ pages have a fair amount of pretend in them. In fact, I find the process of writing this about page to be challenging. How do I share who I am, but resist the urge to stretch the truth, or paint a picture of someone I wish you thought I was?

     Instead of writing an about me page that I think you will like, or sounds impressive I thought I would just survey my wife and three closest friends. I asked them to describe me in a single word. I figured, they know me best and the word they used to describe me was probably the real me. Truthfully,  if I had to create words for myself I would probably use words like Incredibly intelligent, Devilishly Handsome or even a Mad Genius because all of those descriptions sound awesome.

     Unfortunately, that is not what any of my peeps told me.

     My wife described me as Honest and Loyal. She said I am honest to everyone, but people have to earn my loyalty. However, once someone earns it I am there through thick and thin. She said, If I were a dog I would probably be a golden retriever. I kind of wish she said I was something more manly and dangerous like a German Shepeard or Rottweiler.

     My three closest friends described me as Innovative, Trustworthy and Direct.
