Owner’s Spotlight: Doria Zacharias
I’m Doria Zacharias, a top mortgage agent in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I have always been fascinated by finances, and despite working as a controller for an oilfield company for eight years, this fascination refused to go away. While a change in career was not something I envisioned, the success I enjoyed when purchasing my first home motivated me to venture into the mortgage industry.
Being new to the field, I assumed the switch would be tough, but with a clear understanding of the nitty-gritty details of finance, I was able to easily transition as a mortgage agent and start helping people buy homes just like I had.
During my four years as a mortgage broker, I have witnessed this industry change every single day. However, as a mortgage professional, it’s my job to navigate through these changes, so clients don’t have to.
I believe there are too many reference numbers in finance, and while those numbers are connecting people, what client appreciate is the compassion that mortgage brokers offer. For that reason, I see every individual who approaches me for a mortgage as a person and not a number.
I understand that buying a home is a huge deal for a client and their requirements should be handled with a personable touch. So, while assisting my clients, I ensure they receive 100% honest and personable services. That way, I can help them make the right decisions while choosing a mortgage.
To improve my service quality, I like to surround myself with knowledgeable people and continue to educate myself to have the correct tools to guide and support my clients. But, whenever I feel doubt creep in, I like to recall the success I had while helping a client get out of their continuous rental cycle, purchase their first home, and set up a reliable financial plan for their future.
When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my husband Bill and our children and playing a good game of volleyball. We also enjoy going to the great outdoors, soaking in the blissful peace around the countryside, and going camping as a family. Besides this, I even support school lunch programs and food banks to help ensure that no child ever experiences the agony and despair of hunger.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
