Testimonials

Kirkwood and Brennan

Keaton Kirkwood Portrait

Keaton Kirkwood

Keaton grew up in the Okanagan where he attended Okanagan College. In 2011 he racked up a $700 phone bill calling every drilling company in Alberta. After securing a job over the phone he threw everything he owned into his car and drove to Edmonton.

He started out roughnecking on a drilling rig, quite quickly he worked his way up operating power tongs and running casing from rig to rig. After spending 3 years working on call and in camp, with the longest hitch being over 100 days straight, enough was enough, it was time for a change.

This time setting out for Vancouver where he ended up working under one of Canada’s brightest Mortgage Brokers. It was here that Keaton met Scott Brennan, his now business partner. Initially they spent countless weekends taming unruly client files, each climbing a separate path inside of the company and honing their skills.

Eventually they decided to part ways with the company and founded Kirkwood & Brennan Mortgage Group.

Outside of work Keaton spends most of his time hiking and camping with his family – fiancée Karoliina, daughter Freya, dogs Zane and Malee, and his two cats, Shiva and Napoleon.

With the goal of creating a charity that helps addicts gradually transition from rehabilitation programs back into society, Keaton is very passionate about helping others.

Scott Brennan portrait

Scott Brennan

Despite the Vancouver Canucks superfan that you see before you, he wasn’t born and raised here. Scott grew up in the middle of Canada. Brandon, Manitoba. Pretty easy to see where he gets his laid back small town vibe from.

After graduating high school he packed up his gear and moved to Lethbridge Alberta. There he attended the University of Lethbridge but was seduced by entrepreneurship before finishing his program. At the age of 21 he opened a pizza place with a close friend from scratch, winning best pizza in Canada twice. Growing restless Scott felt the call to move to the big city, Vancouver.

Staying in the industry he knew, Scott started out bartending. Eventually the fun of late nights and not having a single weekend off… ever, wore off. Scott found inspiration in his older brother Dave, a mortgage broker back in Manitoba. In 2009 he enrolled at the University of British Columbia, applying his previous secondary education and getting his license to be a mortgage broker.

After a couple years Scott ended up working along side one of Canada’s brightest up and coming mortgage brokers. Scott toiled in the trenches, along side now business partner, Keaton Kirkwood. Frequently putting in 100 hour work weeks, the teams hard work paid off, 5 years later the team was amongst the top 20 in Canada.

Having truly mastered his craft Scott felt the entrepreneurs call once again. Branching off with Keaton, Scott was the driving force behind something new…

With the goal of raising the bar in the industry and putting clients first, Kirkwood & Brennan was born.

How to Prepare Yourself for Retirement

Canadian HRReporter just put out an article that sums up the Canadian retirement landscape wonderfully. Lack of personal preparedness, lack of a plan – personal or corporate, unrealistic retirement expectations, and mis-aligned corporate support for employees and employee goals and needs.
