A FRIEND

I am 70 years young  in Feb 2020.I started our company over 30 years ago out of my gargage. Last year 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 am now able to concentrate on what I love to do and that is helping homeowners and homebuyers strategically deal with their mortgage.

My son, Chris, my daughter, Karen and Karen Schmidt, comprise the Matthey Mortgage Team. Chris has been a mortgage agent for 8+plus. Karen's background is in International Finance and has been an agent for 5 years. Karin Schmidt has a 20+ year banking background and is our client services manager

Our speciality is First Time Buyers, but we cover a wide range of financing options for all types of situations.The new First Time Homebuyers plan may also help a new homebuyer qualify when they maybe wouldn't normally.

Lately, I have been seniors , who own their own home, improve their lifestyles by showing them the advantages of a Reverse Mortgage. I am also 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 ut the Truth.

If you are military, you may have seen news stories on huge mortgage penalties paid by members to their Bank, when posted. You may qualify for our "Freedom Mortgage" for military that offers no penalty when you produce a posting notice inside or outside of Canada.

If you are a First Time Buyer , we have the most comprehensive guide available for you that you can order on line. Just send an email to brian@mtgprof.com under the heading "First Time Buyers Guide Please"

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 alos included in Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine in their Hall of Fame in 2019

It is our belief that our job does not end with your mortgage approval. We support you through changes in your life and lifestyle and we are there to guide you into the nest mortgage product that benefit you, not the lender.

We would love to hear from you.


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.

BLOG / NEWS Updates

Employment fell by more than one million in March

Employment fell by more than one million in March (-1,011,000 or -5.3%). The employment rateor the proportion of people aged 15 and older who were employedfell 3.3 percentage points to 58.5%, the lowest rate since April 1997. Of those who were employed in March, the number who did not work any hours during the reference week (March 15 to 21) increased by 1.3 million, while the number who worked less than half of their usual hours increased by 800,000. These increases in absences from work can be attributed to COVID-19 and bring the total number of Canadians who were affected by either job loss or reduced hours to 3.1 million. The unemployment rate increased by 2.2 percentage points to 7.8%, the largest one-month increase since comparable data became available in 1976. Unemployment increased by 413,000 (+36.4%), largely due to temporary layoffs. In addition, the number of Canadians who had worked recently and wanted to work, but did not meet the official definition of unemployed, increased by 193,000.

Forecast Update: Economies Shutting Down

Rapidly evolving developments necessitate an update to the forecasts we published just last Friday. Additional quarantine or shut-down measures have been put in place in a number of countries in the last few days. As a result, we now anticipate global GDP growth to be 0% in 2020, followed by a sizeable rebound in activity in 2021 given our view that economic activity will rebound quickly once the virus is no longer a serious threat to public health. At present, we believe activity will begin to return to normal in the third quarter, except in countries where containment measures were aggressively deployed in the first quarter (essentially the Asian economies), where activity resumes in the second quarter. In Canada, the closure of non-essential business in Quebec and Ontario announced earlier this week will have large economic consequences. At present, we believe Canadian economic activity will fall by 28% in Q2 as these measures are felt. If other provinces follow, the fall in Q2 economic activity would be in the 35% range. We now assume that economic activity resumes by the start of the third quarter and that growth rebounds sharply at that time. However, the 20% drop in US economic activity in the second quarter will restrain the rebound in Canadian activity in the third quarter owing to the usual lags between US and Canadian economic outcomes. Under these assumptions, Canadian GDP would fall by slightly more than 4% in 2020 and rebound by 5.1% in 2021. Though we have not included any additional measures in this update beyond those already announced, we believe a substantial ramping up of fiscal support measures in Canada is forthcoming. There is a chance that aggressive virus management measures are required beyond Q2 to ensure the virus is truly well-contained. Evidence in Asia this week suggests that even in countries where aggressive management measures have been put in place, COVID-19 can come back quite quickly. If measures in Canada are not lifted by the end of Q2, growth would fall again in Q3, and GDP would fall by 6.3% in 2020 instead of the 4.1% we currently expect. A key question for forecasters is the length of the virus-related restrictions on firms and households. As noted above, a shift of one quarter in the resumption of normal operating conditions can have a large impact on growth outcomes. Since we do not have a good handle on the ultimate length of the interruptions, we consider it more informative to assign probabilities to the time at which virus containment measures end. At this time, we believe there is a 75% chance that activity resumes by Q3 and a 25% chance that activity returns to more normal levels by Q4. How officials manage virus containment internationally, as well as the evolution of the virus, will inform our assessment of probabilities going forward. Source: Scotiabank Economics
