OFFICE MANAGER / MORTGAGE ASSOCIATE
Office: (306) 781-4663
Cell: (306) 209-7811
Hello! I’m Kara Pfeifer and I am beyond thrilled to be entering the industry as a licensed Mortgage Associate with TMG The Mortgage Group.
I grew up in Pilot Butte and couldn’t have asked for a better small-town upbringing. I now live in Regina with my boyfriend, Chris, and french bulldog, Luna. I graduated from Saskatchewan Polytechnic with a diploma in Chemical Technology. The report I wrote during my practicum at Cameco’s Key Lake uranium mine was awarded second place in The Canadian Technology Accreditation Board’s 2016 national research project competition.
In 2018, I purchased my first home: an up/down duplex repossessed by the bank with a basement in need of some serious TLC. I coordinated the efforts of several local contractors, friends, and family members to complete a gut renovation of the tired old basement into a bright and airy suite. Although daunting at first, taking on this project while working 50- to 60-hour weeks was the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I am so proud of what we were able to accomplish in three short months. I now have both suites rented out to incredible tenants who put the same care into the home that we did that summer.
I am entering the mortgage industry after an 8-year career as an Equipment Operator with a local aggregate supplier. I operated rock trucks, skid steers, and front-end loaders. While there, I also had the opportunity to dabble in almost every department including the scale house and the quality control laboratory, as well as working on several different crush, wash, and screen plants. I also developed several spreadsheets that streamlined the tracking of production and maintenance.
Making a career change can be challenging but when the opportunity to combine my passions for real estate and finance presented itself, I recognized mortgage brokering as my true calling.I look forward to discussing your mortgage options with you.
