Mortgage Intelligence consultants in Windsor rise to the challenge for Habitat’s “Jimmy Carter Work Project”

Windsor, ON (June 14, 2005) -- Whether it’s swinging hammers, painting or landscaping, Mortgage Intelligence consultants will roll up their sleeves to help build a Habitat home for a local family in need.

The build in Windsor is part of The Jimmy Carter Work Project 2005 – Habitat for Humanity’s plan to construct more than 230 homes in numerous communities in the United States and Canada over the 10-day period ending June 24. Former U.S. President, Jimmy Carter, will visit the project named in his honour on June 23.

Although the event is hosted in Benton Harbor and Detroit, Michigan, more than 50 additional Habitat affiliates including Windsor, Ontario are participating. Approximately 175 families will be housed through Habitat for Humanity in Canada this year, with the organization dedicating its 1,000th home on Canadian soil by year-end 2005.

“Mortgage Intelligence has been involved with this extremely worthwhile charity for a number of years,” says Karl Wondrak, President, Mortgage Intelligence. “The homes built by Habitat for Humanity volunteers have restored dignity and hope to so many families. This event has drawn 100 per cent participation from Mortgage Intelligence consultants in Windsor and has attracted brokers from as far as London who want to be part of this tremendous undertaking.”

Karl Straky, a senior consultant with Mortgage Intelligence and former principle of Jordan Mortgage, spearheaded the initiative and has been instrumental in raising awareness for Habitat for Humanity over the years.

“We’re expecting an excellent turnout for the build,” says Straky. “The Habitat for Humanity build allows Mortgage Intelligence consultants to truly make a difference in the community. Many consultants have stepped up to the plate. Some have gone as far as enlisting the help of their clients to make this dream come true for a deserving family.”

Mortgage Intelligence and GMAC Residential Funding of Canada join MCAP and Genworth in the sponsorship on the building. Mortgage Intelligence and GMAC Residential Funding of Canada have been involved in numerous charitable endeavors. The organizations plan to direct $1 million over the next few years toward the creation of an endowed chair in Thoracic Surgery at the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation.


Mortgage Intelligence Inc., a GMAC company, is the largest and fastest growing mortgage broker in Canada, with more than 900 independent consultants and associates in offices throughout Canada. Mortgage Intelligence consultants help clients make better mortgage decisions for their home, revenue or vacation properties, renewals, home renovations, debt consolidation needs, and specialized mortgage requirements.
