Director, Mortgage Origination
Michelle joined Canada ICI in 2022. She started her career with a bank prior to working for one of Canada’s largest real estate private equity firms. She structured and managed over $500 million in assets at the firm, focusing on construction and development.
Having lived in Toronto for five years before moving back to Vancouver, Michelle is well-versed in both the Ontario and British Columbia markets.
I believe the keys to success are hard work and integrity. I think my commitment to always be transparent with both my developer and lender clients has allowed me to foster deep, meaningful relationships.
I joined CICI because of the opportunity to take part in establishing the national brand in a new market with a dynamic team.
I like working in commercial real estate finance because there is always a new connection to make and something new to learn. No two deals are the same.
My strengths are my firm foundation in underwriting at a number of large real estate finance institutions in Canada. This experience has allowed me to make several industry connections and structure deals to the needs of both the lenders and the clients – with a high success rate.
The best part of my day is collaborating, whether that be with my clients, co-workers or consultants.
