A FRIEND

I was  71 years young in 2021 I started our company over 30 years ago out of my garage. I sold my interest in the company to four of our agents, including my daughter and formed the Matthey Mortgage Team. Freed from the responsibilities of management I was able to concentrate on what I love to do and that is helping homeowners and homebuyers strategically deal with their mortgage.In mid-2021 I decided to semi-retire and turn my mainstream mortgage business over to my daughter, Karen, and my son, Chris.

My son Chris has been a mortgage agent for 9+plus. Karen's background is in International Finance and has been an agent for 7 years.Both have extensive backgrounds in mortgage financing.

You can contact Chris at chris@mtgprof.com or Karen at karen@mtgprof.com to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.

In my semi-retirement, I am devoting my time to seniors who own their own home to help them understand the value of a Reverse Mortgage.  

I am a "Reverse Mortgage Specialist". Now Reverse mortgages are not for everybody but they are a godsend to many people. There are so many misconceptions about a Reverse Mortgage. My experience with all types of financing options and my age and stage in life allows me to talk to seniors on a "Senior to Senior" basis to guide them on the best financing options for their stage in life, with the Truth and Nothing but the Truth. You can read my blog below entitled "Reverse Mortgages Demystified"

I am proud to have been a nationally and locally award-winning Mortgage Broker for over 30 years in the Kingston area. I have been one of the broker/owners of our company over the same time period. I have been ranked in the Top 3 as a Mortgage Broker in the Kingston This Week's Reader's Choice Awards for the past several years, and in the fall of 2013, I was proud to be inducted into the Canadian Mortgage Hall of Fame with Mortgage Professionals Canada. I was also included in Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine in their Hall of Fame in 2019

The majority of our business comes from referrals, which is a great reinforcement that people appreciate the job that we do. Our job is not just to get you a great rate (although we do that too!) - it is to explain the home buying and mortgage process to you, clearly explain the terms and conditions of your mortgage to you (so unlike with the bank you're not suddenly hit with a shocking penalty you had no idea could happen) and keep you informed about where rates and the economy are going.

Further Rate Cuts on the Horizon: Scotiabank’s Forecast Tables

From Scotiabank We expect the Bank of Canada to cut by 25bps at each of the next three meetings. Inflation is on a good downward path though growth in the interest rate-sensitive parts of the economy remains surprisingly strong. Positive risks to the outlook for growth and inflation remain as interest rates come down. We are particularly mindful of the response in real estate markets and household spending. Any materialization of upside risks would imperil future rate cuts. Rate cuts have finally begun in Canada. With inflation hopefully on a sustained downward path despite the interest rate-sensitive parts of our economy performing surprisingly well, it is now clear that the Bank of Canada has decided rate relief is necessary. That is great news for borrowers if the Bank of Canada follows through with additional cuts. We think they will, though we remain concerned about upside risks to inflation given rising wages and falling productivity, the surprising strength in consumption, the serial over-stimulation by the federal and provincial governments, and the potential for a housing market rebound. As a result of the latest decision and the communications around that we are changing our Bank of Canada view and now expect that Governor Macklem will cut the policy rate at each of the next three meetings, for a total of 100bps of cuts this year. https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/about/economics/economics-publications/post.other-publications.global-outlook-and-forecast-tables.scotiabank%27s-forecast-tables.2024.june-6--2024.html

NBC BoC Policy Monitor: Price progress = Policy pivot

From National Bank of Canada In the first rate decision with material uncertainty in a year, the BoC opted lower the target for the overnight rate by 25 basis points, a decision in line with market expectations and the consensus forecast. This makes the BoC the first G7 central bank to ease policy this year, though the ECB is widely expected to follow suit tomorrow. Citing clear progress in core inflation, in addition to ongoing sub-potential growth and a rebalancing labour market, the press release noted monetary policy no longer needs to be as restrictive. The focus now turns to the pacing of cuts in this nascent easing cycle. In the opening statement to the presser, Macklem said its reasonable to expect further easing as long as inflation continues to ease. That puts a July cut squarely in focus and wed be inclined to bet they will ease again at the next meeting. At the same time, wed note that earlier BoC communications indicated that monetary policy easing this year would be gradual. Macklem confirmed this view in the press conference. So although back-to-back cuts may be instituted to start, were skeptical theyll continue at the same pace thereafter. We agree with market expectations that 50 basis points of additional rate relief is appropriate in 2024. In contrast, the consensus sees this marking the start of a more aggressive easing campaign. The median expectation is for a 4% policy rate by year-end. Three more cuts over the last four decisions of the year, isnt a pace of cuts we would characterize as gradual and isnt as likely to materialize barring a more material slowdown in the economy. The Banks next decision will take place on July 24th. The Summary of Deliberations for todays decision will be released on June 19th. https://www.nbc.ca/content/dam/bnc/taux-analyses/analyse-eco/boc-policy-monitor.pdf
