Rabinder Dhillon is a mortgage broker in Port Alberni

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Alberni Valley News will be running features on a number of women in business in Port Alberni. Rabinder Dhillon is a mortgage broker in Port Alberni.

Since 2009, I have been educating people to make informed decisions about their mortgage options for purchases, refinances, debt consolidation, equity mortgages, construction and revenue properties.

Taking on a mortgage is one of the biggest financial commitments individuals take on in their lifetime. My goal each day is to have my clients realize and understand I am working for them and that their goals, along with their fears, are equally important. My goal is to build relationships. I want my clients to understand all of the options available to them in order for them to make an educated choice on the product best suited to fulfill their long-term financial goals.

I am most proud of my work in the Alberni Valley School District, educating teens on financial literacy. Since 2012, I have been volunteering my time to lecture on the EnRICHed Academy from Dominion Lending Centres at ADSS. The program is amazing as it allows for me to explain to teenagers, in simple terms, the value of money…from the importance of saving, to the true cost of credit and ultimately, investing for the future. What I try to convey to the students is that knowledge is power and the more that they know about money, the wealthier they will be.
