John Panagakos is the go-to mortgage agent in Canada for “Separation Mortgages”. He created and pioneered this unique approach to securing mortgages ‘when they matter most’ for clients-in-need, more than a decade ago.
John has been a licensed Mortgage Agent with Safebridge Financial Group since 2010 and is highly regarded within the Family Law community as THE expert in Separation Mortgages.
To enhance his understanding and skills in this area, John took the initiative to enroll in the Collaborative Law training program (normally utilized by family law practitioners), which gives him unique insight and value when he’s called upon by lawyers to assist their clients seeking mortgages in the midst of separation and divorce
A strong believer in education, John graduated George Brown College in 2007 with a Bachelor of Business. He furthered his knowledge at Ryerson University in Finance and Marketing in 2003, while launching his pursuit of business and finance excellence at Humber College Business Management School, Business/Commerce.
John is a father of two children and looks back fondly on his early years as a personal banker at RBC, where he honed his personal communications skills. This is a pillar of John’s commitment to his clients – always willing to give out his cell number and take a call to support clients who have urgent needs and require immediate answers. It’s a personal touch in which he takes pride.
Not one to let his communication skills wane, John is also an author with Lexis Nexis. He’s not only been published, he’s become a successful speaker and live-presenter.
A supporter of multiple charities, John is committed to giving back and supporting his community through organizations such as Make A Wish, Santa Claus Parade, and Greek Games Canada.
