When Dion was a sole agent, 'Mortgages By Dion' made sense as a company name. Now that we've grown into a team of professionals we are more than 'just Dion'.
The idea of Kanga Mortgage came from the desire to represent who we are - fun loving Canadians with an Aussie twist. You’ll hear Dion Beg ’s accent come through every now and then, but our roots and our team are Canadian based and Canadian at heart.
Behind the success of every top-notch mortgage agency is a skilled leader. For the Kanga Mortgage team, that leader is Dion Beg.
Dion Beg is a veteran mortgage agent whose forward-thinking approach to mortgages has risen him to the top 75 (out of 20,000) mortgage agents in Canada. Dion puts a premium on helping families reach long-term financial freedom. Why the focus on families and long-term financial success? It has to do with how Dion became a mortgage agent in the first place.
Dion dedication to his wife and kids drove him to create a business that reflects his own goals for his family: helping other people and families build wealth by investing in real estate.

To that end, he’s worked hard over the past decade to build a strong network of realtor contacts, both through direct interaction, seminars and teaching at the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board. Now Dion brings his mortgage and real estate expertise out of the auditorium, and to families all around Canada by holding regular webinars that cover the current market and real estate purchase and investment.
By leveraging his financial savvy and connections to a vast network of realtors, Dion can offer his clients a mortgage service that doesn’t just help them and their families land the best deals, but also educates them on how real estate works, and how to use it to secure your future.
Thus, Kanga Mortgage was established, with Dion as the spearhead of a team of experts, his wife Vimla as the GM, and a team of professional mortgage experts.
Vimla has worked with Dion since 2004. She has helped build the Kanga Mortgage team into what it is today by creating and managing the HR, finance, marketing and administration processes. As General Manager, Vimla works closely with the management team to make decisions on the direction of the company, allocation of resources and implementation of new ideas and strategies.
