Far better is it to dare mighty things than to take rank with those poor timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Kelly Rowe - Accredited Mortgage Professional
Kelly Rowe is a North Okanagan Mortgage Broker who started her banking career in 1980 and quickly found her passion for lending. After 31 years in the mortgage industry she has found that her ability to think outside the box has assisted in thousands of mortgage approvals. Having lived in the community for 24 years and served two terms as a City Councillor, Kelly has created very long-term relationships and now has the joy of working not only with her clients, friends, and neighbours, but also with their children.
When Kelly isn't working or helping her two girls and husband with what ever she can, she loves to just spend fun time with them on the lake or the hill. As her retirement goal is Freedom 75, she will be around for years to come, continuing to work in the mortgage industry she loves.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
A: It's difficult to choose, but telepathy would definitely assist in my profession - that way, if there were a lender that wasn't quite seeing my vision, I could help them more easily understand that I am right!
Q: What is one skill/talent you wish you had?
A: I'd like to be more proficient in the many uses of social media, other than the personal social side.
Q: What is the last book you read?
A: The Penny by Joyce Meyer. It's set in the 1950's and was loaned to me by a dear friend. As someone who rarely reads fiction, I loved it.
Q: What is your all-time favourite film?
A: Imitation of Life - also set in the 1950's (hmmm...I'm sensing a theme). I remember sitting together with the family, watching this show on TV in the 1960's. There was not a dry eye at the end. I can still find it on Netflix on occasion!
Q: What do you love about what you do?
A: Creating long-lasting relationships, advising, mentoring, problem-solving, and at the end: winning!
