Our Team of Calgary Mortgage Specialists
Erin Kelly bought her first property when she was just a teenager. She quickly saw how appreciating, cash-flowing assets could impact your life. She believes it is important to get rid of your personal residence mortgage and consumer debt as quickly as possible to obtain financial freedom, and she teaches her entire team how to have our clients' primary residences mortgage-free in 8 to 10 years.
Erin considers it a great honour to work with such an incredible group of mortgage and real estate professionals. She attributes all of her success to this dynamic group of dedicated people who are committed to excellence.
She battles a daily addiction to chai tea lattés, she surfs, and because she used to work at MTV, she has an obsession with live music. Erin also travels around the world training corporations how to have a culture of achievement, but she considers her greatest accomplishment to be recovering her son from autism.
In her own words, "I love my job! I make people's dreams come true!" Whether you're buying your first home, your dream home or accessing equity, Kelly loves guiding her clients through the process and provides calm and prudent advice. She has a passion for assisting people in achieving their goals and dreams.
Kelly is the Sales and Marketing Manager for the Erin Kelly Mortgage Team. She is a dynamic leader and she Thinks Big.
When Kelly isn't helping people (really, that doesn't happen!), she has two beautiful boys, Miles and Oliver, and an amazing man who supports and loves her. Together they enjoy mountain biking, camping, hiking and tobogganing.

Jana is a licensed Executive Assistant to Erin Kelly, but we all know she's the boss. Jana started keeping Erin organized over 13 years ago when they were roommates. She is also the Assistant Underwriter on the team because Jana can be counted on to get things done quickly, and efficiently.
She is organized, professional, pro-active and sharp. She's our event planner, note-taker, director, scheduler, client care department, relationship manager, nutritionist, and fashion consultant. She is predictably positive and focused. She is the reason our clients brag about our team and we attribute our success to her support!
Lisa was born a business woman! Her first entrepreneurial adventure was building an international modeling agency. She attributes her success there to the training and development of the models through the school side of the business. She learned a great deal about the importance of training and personal development and how it relates to business success.
Lisa's next undertaking was real estate sales and marketing for condominium developers. She quickly became a top producer, which led to opening her own sales and marketing company where she employed 25 sales staff with multiple condo developments, both in Canada and around the world.
Lisa then became the co-founder of Cheap Smokes & Tobacco in 2009 and in only a few years, together with her husband Jeff, has successfully opened their 2nd store in Alberta and is in the process of franchising this business.
Lisa is our Commercial Mortgage Specialist, and she funds everything from small commercial condo bays to giant skyscrapers.
Lisa has a personal dedication to achieving excellence, both as an entrepreneur and as a mother of four children. Her dedication, drive and knowledge are evident to all of our clients.

Erin is outgoing, witty and a ton of fun! Starting her life in NWT and Saskatchewan, she has turned into the ultimate downtown girl! With a love of all things metropolitan, Erin is always helping people connect, and knows not only finance, but where to have the best meal, best time, and where to get the best deal.

Helping others has always come naturally, so her choice to join the mortgage industry seemed like a great fit. With 8 years of management experience and 3 in the financial industry, her dedication and hard work have given her the skills to make things happen.
Erin works hard for her clients, helping them to find the best mortgage product or connecting them with others to help them build their business. Erin's clients are always in good hands.
