You will act as a trusted strategic advisor, connecting clients with other RBC partners to meet their diverse commercial and personal financial needs.

  • Mentor and coach Associate Directors in deal structuring, negotiation skills, RBC lending guidelines, policies and risk appetite, profitability requirements;

  • Proactively maintain the health and integrity of accounts from a portfolio quality management perspective;

  • Through long-term strategic planning with clients, maintain an ongoing sales pipeline of real estate transactions and identify opportunities where RBC can support our clients through platforms outside of real estate financing (e.g. Residential Mortgage program, Private Banking, Capital Markets, Commercial Mortgages); and

  • Develop and maintain a strong external network in the hotel, seniors housing, self-storage, and real estate community, including lending syndicate partners, law firms, cost consultants, etc.

What do you need to succeed?


  • Previous real estate IPP lending experience;

  • Proven track record in sales and business development and exceptional client relationship management;

  • Superior negotiation skills supported by deep industry expertise;

  • Excellent credit structuring and underwriting skills, and strong background of project budget and financial statement analysis;

  • Strong computer skills (especially Microsoft Word and Excel);

  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills;

  • Must be independent worker and team player with a positive attitude;

  • Motivated proactive thinker with detail-oriented and creative problem solving approach;

  • Ability to quickly develop a working knowledge of programs and systems employed by the Bank; and

  • Ongoing and consistent adoption of the Banks goals and core values.


  • Prior experience in operating real estate (Hotels, Seniors Housing, and Self-Storage)

  • MBA, CFA or CPA; and

  • Experience leading large, complex syndicated transactions.

What's in it for you?

We thrive on the challenge to be our best, progressive thinking to keep growing, and working together to deliver trusted advice to help our clients thrive and communities prosper. We care about each other, reaching our potential, making a difference to our communities, and achieving success that is mutual.
