Partner/Principal Broker/Father/Doomsday Prepper
Born in the frozen wastes of Edmonton, forged in the fiery furnace of Hamilton. My mom Suzanne started this business when I was 10 years old, so it’s safe to say I was raised at the Personal Mortgage Group. After years working in carpentry, I circled back to the business in 2016 and have been servicing our awesome clients ever since.
My goal is to uphold and maintain the high standard of service and expertise that made the PMG what it is today.
Fun facts about me:
- I can name every country in the world from memory
- My son is objectively the cutest baby ever (that’s right Chris and Steve, I went there)
- I think Hallowe’en should be a stat holiday

Partner/Mortgage Broker/Father/VW Enthusiast
I recently celebrated my 10 year anniversary working as a Mortgage Broker for the Personal Mortgage Group, and there is nothing else I would rather be doing. I’ve been calling Hamilton home for the majority of my life and have enjoyed many opportunities and experiences this city has to offer. My interests vary depending on the time of year, but one thing that stays constant is my family: my wife, Jenn, and my son, Zack.
- I was an avid member of the Couchsurfing community and have hosted people from all over the world – and surfed myself. The highlight couch for me was a week on the island of Rarotonga of the Cook Islands. Travel has always been important to me with one of my life goals to visit 30 countries by the time I turned 30 years old. I accomplished this goal and had many good times along the way.
- Another highlight was being at the SkyDome when Jose Bautista hit his famous home run bat flip – what a ride those Blue Jays playoff teams were in 2015 and 2016 and the future looks bright once again. As good as playoff baseball can be, getting married and having a child has topped that all off.
One of the best parts of my job is building long term relationships with PMG clients. Although the process of applying and obtaining a mortgage isn’t necessarily considered “fun”, I hope to make it an experience that is informative, encouraging, and enjoyable.

Mortgage Agent/Father/Multi-instrumentalist Extraordinaire
Like many finance professionals, I seem to have found my way into mortgage brokering through the back door. My time at the Personal Mortgage Group started in 2012, working under the supervision of my colleague, Chris Horrocks and PMG founder, Suzanne Boyce.
I had been touring the world as Technical Director for the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra (based out of Toronto). Born and raised in Hamilton, I moved to Toronto for a number of years and found myself back in Hamilton in 2011 after buying my first house on Ray Street N.
Arts jobs being relatively scarce back then, I reached out to Suzanne for some advice; she was and is extraordinarily plugged into everything in Hamilton. To my surprise, she offered me a job on the spot!
9 years later, my life has settled in quite a bit. When I’m not busy talking mortgages with my beloved clients, I can be found at HAAA with my wife and 3 kids or haunting the local arts & music scene.

Mortgage Agent/Mother/Former Ti-Cat Cheerleader
Having spent 17 years working for some of Canada’s largest mortgage lenders, I decided it was time to take my career in a new direction and I left the hustle and bustle of the corporate world for new beginnings. After many years of working with the team at the Personal Mortgage Group, I couldn’t think of a better place to start this next chapter.
Born and raised a Hamiltonian, I love the rich diversity of this city, and the heart and grit of the people who call Hamilton home.
When I’m not working, I’m a wife and busy mom to my 6 year old son. I’m a total foodie, and thankfully my son seems to have inherited my love of good food. You can often catch us checking out one of the city’s newest culinary destinations.
- I love football and was a Ti-Cat Cheerleader way back in the day. Oskee Wee Wee – Go Cats!
- I consider myself to be a bit of an amateur mixologist. You can regularly find me testing out a recipe for a tasty new cocktail. Fan fave; French martini.
- I love to read, dig in my garden, a reality tv junkie, and anything true crime is my jam.
I bring to the table a wealth of inside industry knowledge and I pride myself on delivering the highest standard of customer service. My commitment to our PMG clients is to ensure they understand the mortgage process every step of the way, and leave feeling confident and well informed.
File Administrator/Mother of cat and human children/All-around peach
I am the newest member of the PMG family. My job is to collect and manage all your mortgage documents, which is a perfect fit as organization is my jam. Between that and having spent the last 20 years with Manulife in a very similar role, I am the PMG’s organizational backbone.
I live in Hamilton with my two kids Marley and Kai, and my sweet boy Murphy (the feline child of the bunch, LOL)! I love all the trails and waterfalls in the area and am an avid hiker. Possibly unpopular opinion, but winter is my favourite season.
My best life experience you ask? That would have to be dog sledding in the Yukon on a frozen Lake Lebarge 🙂
Suzanne Boyce (Retired)
Suzanne founded the PMG in 1992 when residential mortgage brokering was in its infancy in Canada. As a single mom of an unruly son, she burned the candle at both ends for years to build the business and establish a loyal clientele. The secret to her success was always putting the needs of her clients first and using her expertise in mortgage financing to develop reliable strategies to help people navigate the often complicated mortgage landscape. After nearly 30 years running the PMG, Suzanne has moved into a new but no less exciting phase, operating a small resort on the Island of Roatan and hopefully enjoying some much deserved R&R.
