Robert Stanford the son of Hazel and Ernest Stanford was born and raised in Wasaga Beach. After graduating from Collingwood Collegiate Institute he followed his passion studying Accounting and Business Management. Robert was torn between following in his Fathers foot steps as a builder and Company Management after working with his Father since the age of nine. Being over qualified as site supervisor siding condo projects in Collingwood Robert built several homes before chosing his passion. Management started at the early age of 16 as Manager of Riverside Marina next to the bridge near beach area 1 in Wasaga Beach.
Many years ago Robert upgraded his expertise to become one of the best Mortgage Agents in Canada specializing in non traditional Mortgages. After being trained as an understudy of an extremely busy A Broker meaning Bank approved Mortgages Robert found himself in a Brokerage with people specializing in Bank Mortgage or Private Mortgages. They offered nothing in the middle for self employed or clients that almost got approved at the Bank. Robert became a self educated specialist in what is called the Alternative Lending Market forging great relationships with lenders such as Home Trust, N-Brook, MCAP, First National, and many more. Proceeding to the next level Robert and Julia opened Mortgage Alternatives with Julia as the Principal Broker. They quickly took the company to new heights when Robert worked on a $100 million construction draw Mortgage to build a high rise. This work brought new clients including Alternative Lending clients for large projects a completely new world. After extensive research and negotiations on a difficult project Robert and Julia delivered an unconditional Mortgage approval for $69 million in private money.
Robert is still funding Alternative and Bank Mortgages today as office Manager of Mortgage Alternatives as well as being the office manager of HomeLife All Points Realty Inc., Brokerage.
Robert and Julia took an awful break from Business in 2015 when Robert was diagnosed with stage four cancer not expecting to see Christmas. Julia the best wife in the world stood beside her husband through each and every appointment and treatment. Julia worked, cooked and cleaned all day then studied online each night into very late hours learning what more she could do. In the end her intelligence and persistance convined the Encologist to change the Chimo treatment. Robert very much credits Julia with saving his life.
Julia was born in the former Soviet Union to wonderfull very well educated parents. Her strength comes from a mixture of Russian, Ukrainian, German and Polish blood. Her belief that education is not hard to carry started at a young age earning her the scholarship to travel to Kiev and get her Engineer Degree. Next came Moscow Law and owner operator of a construction company.
Julia's wonderful life was turned upside down when a crazy Canadian fell into her lap without warning. You can guess the rest.
Julia quickly joined Robert as an Agent in the Mortgage industry and proceeded to Broker. What good is a Mortgage Agent without a Real Estate Agent. Following in her life long belief that education is not hard to carry Julia went back to school and became a Real Estate Broker.
Today Julia and Robert plan to take both Brokerages Mortgage Alternatives and HomeLife All Points Realty Inc., Brokerage to new levels raising the bar of quality and education in Barrie, Simcoe County and Ontario. Builders, Developers and home owners are welcome to put quality to work for you.
Thanks Julia and Robert
