Our family is a collective of amazing people, helping yours, #livebetter
Principal Broker & Managing Partner
Nick L’Ecuyer Principal Broker & Managing Partner
A home is many things – a place to grow your family, a space to create memories, a haven from the demands of everyday life and a getaway from the rest of the world. So consider this: shouldn’t the process of financing a home feel just as good as coming home? Trust my team to make it happen.
I am passionate about real estate. Like many people, though, I know firsthand that buying a home can be an overwhelming journey. There are numerous moving parts to manage and an error anywhere in the process can cost you your dream home.
Clearly, there’s a lot at stake. So when I became a mortgage broker, I imagined starting a different kind of mortgage brokerage – one that would provide a smooth and stress free mortgage-buying experience. Today, my vision has been brought to life. I am the founder and Principal Broker of The Mortgage Wellness Group, an award-winning mortgage brokerage based in Barrie, Ont. and one of the largest mortgage brokerages in Canada.
During my career, I have received a number of prestigious industry honours and award nominations from Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine. Those many accolades include the 2009 award for Best Newcomer – Individual Agent/Broker. More recently, The Mortgage Wellness Group was a finalist for the 2015 award for Mortgage Brokerage of the Year.

Why Mortgage Wellness?
When my son and I teamed up to bring Mortgage Wellness to the local market we had a whole new client focus in mind. We could be better and different by providing better choices for our clients. Every step and all of our decisions were based on having our clients live better by ensuring they are always satisfied with their mortgage solution. We believe we have achieved this important goal and continue to change with our client’s needs.
Years of experience:
I have been with Mortgage Wellness since day one. Over seven years of supporting the brokerage and managing our external team of agents and brokers across Ontario. We have an incredible team representing us in Ontario.
I love to see all of my family each day in the office. I get a lot of visits from grandchildren and friends who like to hang in our space. Best job ever!!

On a daily basis, Nancy is able to jump in and make sure our clients and team are taken care of, and welcomed into an organized, clean, friendly environment- down to the touch up paint in our boardrooms, or new shelves in the storage room. Nancy's always able to keep our office looking beautiful!
I am passionate about real estate. Nancy is a busy mom of two, and has an extensive background in veterinarian studies, although the closest she gets to working with animals these days is when she brings the family puppy in for an office visit...we all enjoy that, especially our lucky clients that happen to stop by on those days!
