  • Udia Umoette

    Mortgage Agent Level 2

    After personally facing the challenges of securing a mortgage as a new immigrant and a self-employed professional in the construction industry, I decided to channel my decades of experience in sales and partnerships into the mortgage sector. My goal is to assist individuals in understanding how to obtain funding tailored to their specific situations. With a background in the IT sector spanning both the United Kingdom and Canada, I am passionate about promoting inclusion and fostering partnerships with financial institutions. This passion led me to serve on the board of the Consumer Advisory Panel of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA), where I work to address the challenges consumers may encounter with financial services. Deeply connected to my community, I have volunteered with organizations such as SickKids Hospital, Canadian Red Cross, Cerebral Palsy Initiatives, and the Richmond Hill Soccer Club. Outside of my professional and volunteer pursuits, I enjoy spending quality time with my kids, striving for a Victory Royale in our gaming adventures.

  • Norman Grove

    Mortgage Broker

    In 2013, I embarked on my fourth career at Benson after retiring from the education profession. In education, I taught Mathematics and Science and held various administrative roles. During that time, I pursued further education, studying accounting while teaching, and obtaining a BAS and MBA, in addition to my earlier BA in Economics and M.Ed. I hold English and Australian accounting designations and teach part-time at Seneca College. My career journey began as a pilot in my early twenties, followed by a transition to pursuing my CA with Touche-Ross before returning to teaching. In 2017, I upgraded my Agent license to Broker. My interests are particularly focused on construction mortgages, having arranged them from Windsor to White River, and handling residential transactions in Northern Ontario Towns and the Ottawa area. Although I reside in South Simcoe and Dufferin County, I am enthusiastic about assisting clients in the GTA, where I also live. With my background in education, I am especially drawn to clients involved in the education sector. Beyond work, I have contributed to the Stevenson Hospital Memorial Foundation in Alliston, serving as a director, treasurer for one year, and Vice-Chair for four years.
