Transitional Broker Program

Become a mortgage broker through a one-on-one program that pairs you with an ALIC senior lending manager.

The Transitional Broker program helps motivated individuals become successful, fully accredited mortgage brokers.

How the Transitional Broker Program Works

To continue our legacy of exceptional client results, our brokers must have the right skills, attitudes, and focus.

Over time, we found that acquiring brokers from external sources rarely resulted in the right fit.

So we developed our own talent pipeline: a way to teach motivated finance professionals the skills they needed to become professional brokers.

The Transitional Broker program enables handpicked individuals to become mortgage brokers by pairing them with senior lending managers in a structured, education-focused setting.

Over the course of six to 12 months, each participant develops the requisite capabilities to be an ALIC broker by working as associate investment lending managers.
