Mortgage Agent Level 1
Mortgage Agent Lic # M23004887
Hello, My name is Harold Au and I originally hail from Hong Kong, China. However, my family and I moved to Toronto when I was seven years old, and I've been living, schooling and working in the GTA and Kitchener-Waterloo area ever since.
I joined the mortgage industry to bring my 15 years of institutional finance experience to the table and work with clients to brainstorm the best solution for their financing needs. My goal is to help demystify the mortgage world and provide clients not only with the best rate for their situation but also ensure their financial goals are met in all areas.
My clients will want to work with me because I have a deep understanding of economics and finances, and I am a pretty transparent person who wears his heart on his sleeve, so many people can relate to me. I'm proud of the fact that as a partner of finance at a design and construction firm, my team and I helped a client and her family bring their dream home from a distant concept to a full two-story modern home, all within their budget.
I like to think of myself as a solution provider, and that's the role I've excelled at in my career. From designing and building complex computer systems to helping match buyers and sellers as a trader, I create the structure and venue to connect people who have needs with those who can service those needs.
In my personal life, I embrace adventure, and to that end, I've become pretty comfortable on a snowboard, mountain bike, and motorcycle. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether it's a night out on the town or a children's party at the local trampoline park.
My favorite book right now is "Becoming Supernatural: How Common People are Doing the Uncommon" by Dr. Joe Dispenza, which was recommended by one of my book club members. My favorite quote is "Live Long and Prosper," accompanied by the Vulcan salute, which encapsulates the positive sense of doing good and wishing well on others in your everyday journey of life.
As for my wolf name, I chose Cerberus, a multi-headed wolf that guards the gates leading to the world of bad financial choices and prevents clients from making financial mistakes. I chose this name because it represents my mission to protect my clients and guide them towards making the right financial decisions.
