As an award-winning mortgage advisor, Maryam Bakhshi is passionate about her work and her clients, and believes in relationships built on trust and honesty. “Running my own business and serving my customer is my passion. In finance, you cannot postpone or delay client's financial needs. You need to be 100% committed and available. When I take a deal, I know I will close it. When I promise, I deliver,” she shares.
Maryam has always had a love for numbers and finance. With a degree in statistics from York University and a postgraduate diploma from Toronto College of Technology, she entered the working world as a statistics expert in 2001. After a successful 10-year career in different roles with Statistics Canada, the federal government, and IBM Canada, she started her business as a mortgage advisor as a part-time job in 2012. She juggled her job in statistics and her business until her desire to be self-employed drove her to leave her salaried position and dedicate her full attention to her mortgage clients. Her decision paid off with recognition as the #1 Award Winner for the past three years with her brokerage, a growing client base, and a career that she truly loves. “I have been always available and worked sincerely in exchange for the trust I received from my clients for hiring me for their financial needs that is a very important part in each family.”
Originally from Iran, Maryam’s determination to succeed in her new Canadian home was set 21 years ago, when she picked up a magazine shortly after she immigrated. “There was a magazine in Toronto about the successful immigrants. I found a quote from it that I liked very much and always followed: ‘Canada is a place full of opportunities, just work hard, and be honest.’ I truly believe in this message. We can make so many positive things happen by using our knowledge and working hard; opportunities will rise.”
