Raised on a family farm near Allan, SK, Marcel lived for a short period of time in North Battleford and Calgary before settling in Saskatoon.
With a passion for real estate, Marcel enrolled through UBC in 2002 and became a residential appraiser with Dream Home Appraisals. One year later, Home Loans Canada (Division of CIBC) recruited Marcel to become a mortgage professional. Buoyed by a relentless entrepreneurial spirit, Marcel founded Your Mortgage Link Inc. in May 2006. Today, he remains YML’s majority owner and President. Marcel is highly involved in YML’s day-to-day operations, including the hiring and training of new brokers. He also works extensively with both commercial and residential clients.
Marcel was married and has two boys who are now adults. He enjoys a variety of endeavors, including curling, snowmobiling, skiing, golfing, water sports, camping and cooking for others. Marcel joined Kinsmen in 2012, and enjoys contributing to the well-being of the Saskatoon community through that organization. He tries to make it back to the family farm to assist whenever possible.
