TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - Pineapple Financial Inc.

According to Pineapple, the Manitoba market holds significant growth potential, particularly in Winnipeg, the most affordable housing market among the seven largest cities in the country. The newly established office locations are anticipated to yield over $100 million in new mortgage originations within the next twelve months.

Leading the Pineapple National branded office located at 267 Mountain Avenue in Winnipeg is Marilyn Magtoto and her team of experienced brokers who recently transitioned from other networks. With over two decades of experience in the banking and mortgage industry and a recent move to Pineapple from RBC in 2023, Ms. Magtoto stated, "What sets Pineapple apart is not only its technology but also its support - no other company has advocated for me in the same way or actively championed my success."

Ms. Magtoto added, "The move was also a strategic step towards enhancing our client and partner relationships. The location on Mountain Avenue, marked by the prominent Pineapple National sign, is a key intersection offering great visibility and easy accessibility for our clients citywide. The other tenants in the building have become partners in our success, driving additional traffic to our business and contributing to our revenue growth as complimentary service providers."

Spearheading the other new office at 196 Osborne Street in Winnipeg is 18-year banking and mortgage industry expert Jan Reyes, who also transitioned to Pineapple from CIBC last year, bringing a wealth of experience and a growing team of seven brokers. Mr. Reyes stated, "Our office is owned by Realtors and located in a bustling area with heavy foot traffic. This unique setup positions us as their in-house mortgage team for their client's needs, creating a distinctive advantage to increase our revenue potential."

Anticipating a booming Manitoba market in 2024, Mr. Reyes said he plans to stand out and drive success by leveraging Pineapple's new AI tools and delivering education-focused marketing campaigns to prepare clients ahead of the market shift to seize opportunities at the right time.

Pineapple chief strategy officer Christa Mitchell added, "With decades of experience in this region, Marilyn and Jan are the ideal mortgage professionals to spearhead our efforts in this promising market. Their proven track record and understanding of the local landscape will allow them to capitalize on Manitoba's growth potential and deliver exceptional value to our clients."

Pineapple Financial is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, with offices in six provinces across Canada housing approximately 700 brokers.
