Nolan Smith

Owner / Managing Broker

Nolan has been in the mortgage finance industry since 2007. His career started at a finance company that dealt with a complex demographic of borrowers. Nolan excelled as an advisor, then senior advisor, then Branch Manager and was a top-performer in the company nation-wide. While the reward of obtaining approvals for seemingly un-approvable clients was there, the limited product and rate selection deterred his desire to stay in the position for long. In 2009, Nolan joined Peet & Cowan Financial as an independent mortgage broker and found a good fit at a great company. There, he paired his knowledge of how to get tough approvals done with an array of mortgage products priced at best-market levels.

Under the guidance of his two mentors, Jonathon & Francis, Nolan learned how to think and manage his business prudently, foster and maintain key relationships all while growing his network. In January of 2016, Nolan set out to open the doors of Oceanvale Mortgage & Finance – a brokerage partnered with the Dreyer Group inside of the VERICO network. Harbouring everything bestowed upon him by the people that surrounded him on his journey through the mortgage business, the vision he crafted for his own business took flight.

Leading the company, Nolan believes in the power of an unforgettable customer experience. His network of Realtor partners, lawyers, appraiser, insurance agents and wealth managers all culminate to a well thought out and established process that is bar none.
