Hi, my name is April Jin, Mortgage Advisor for Westworth Financial Corp.
I started my career in the mortgage financing industry in 2013 and got my broker license in 2015. I joined Westworth to be part of the team where we share the same values: open communication, transparency and support.
Getting financing can be stressful, but with the right guide it will be easy and smooth. With 9 years of industry experience in both private lending and brokerages, I walk my clients step by step through the full process. I speak both English and Mandarin fluently. In my leisure time I enjoy kayaking and hiking when it's sunny.
Hi, my name is Priya, Mortgage Associate for Westworth Financial. In my 10 years of Customer Service Experience, I worked my way up in the banking sector.
To further enhance my portfolio knowledge in the mortgage & real estate industry, I joined Westworth. Upon joining the company I was given the opportunity to be part of a team and further my career in the mortgage and finance sector. I work closely with our clients throughout the entire mortgage process and am dedicated to making sure clients feel supported every step of the way, from start to finish. My inherited knowledge in financial background helps me develop a long-lasting relationship with our clients through meaningful advice and trust. In my free time, I enjoy creating media content for my Social sites, love to explore new cuisine and spending time with my family.

I make the mortgage process simple and transparent for my clients. Whether you are purchasing your first home, an investment property, consolidating debt, renovating your space, or simply looking for an expert opinion on your current situation – I’m here to serve you!

Focusing on the client journey and experience has been my passion for my entire career, this stems from my belief in the value of teamwork, communication and embracing a sense of community around me. Andy and the Westworth Financial team’s shared enthusiasm in this mindset is what brought me to this high-performing team. I come to Westworth Financial with nearly a decade of mortgage and financial industry experience as a licensed Mortgage Broker in British Columbia.
I am a local from right here in the lower mainland, born in New Westminster and having lived in Vancouver and recently moved to Surrey with my wife and young daughter. I am bilingual; fluent in English and Punjabi and relish having that ability to help me connect to all my clients and across generations. I am a big believer in keeping moving and maintain a very active lifestyle usually through running, snowboarding, road cycling, swimming, hiking and ice hockey. I’ve been on skates since the age of 4 and enjoyed an amateur ice hockey career that now spans over 30 years and counting. Hobbies and interests aside, spending time with my family is where you’re most likely to find me if it’s not at the office!
Hi, my name is Andy Saran, Mortgage Advisor, Principal and Founder of Westworth Financial. I have over 15 years of banking and mortgage brokering experience.
With my knowledge and expertise, I know how lenders operate and leverage this to help my clients get the right mortgage financing. Having personally been through many economic ups and downs, I understand what financial stress and success can be like. Asking the right questions, listening and identifying each individual’s needs, I am able to implement the right strategies even with the most complex of situations. Being very competitive, it is my commitment to bettering myself, my business, and my client’s financial status.
In 2018 I founded Westworth Financial, a Mortgage Brokerage, after working with many major organizations. Knowing the struggles brokers face on a day-to-day basis, whether it be filling their pipeline and/or requiring administration support, I wanted to create a work culture to provide the help and guidance they need.
Growing up my parents made it very important to get involved in sports to be a team player and speak fluent Punjabi so I can connect with many generations. When I am not working or spending time with family, I enjoy golfing. I love what I do (cliché, I know), and am extremely grateful to have found my purpose.
Hi, my name is Rupa Nanubhai, Operations Manager for Westworth Financial Corp. I had been working with Andy for 4 years when he approached me with his ideas, beliefs and the culture he wanted to create for Westworth Financial. Immediately, I knew this would be a company I could work “with” rather than work “for”.
I’ve worked in the financial industry for over 10 years; corporate banking, anti-money laundering and achieving my broker license 5 years ago. With my many years of experience, I am dedicated to helping take care of our clients, ensuring their personal financial needs have been met and helping them achieve their next financial goal. I am also committed to working with my team members in building a positive environment, supporting them and bringing my bubbly attitude into the office every day!
Hello, my name is Paul Aulakh, Mortgage Advisor with Westworth Financial. For as long as I can remember I’ve been involved in real estate, whether it be building and selling homes or buying as investment properties; making me very familiar with mortgages from the consumer side. Now I take that experience and guide my clients through a seamless and efficient process for their financing needs.
Prior to my Mortgage Career, I was in Operations for the previous decade. Graduating from BCIT in International Business in the early 2000’s, I joined a local Materials Handling company and worked my way up to manage one of their divisions. However, real estate continued to be a significant part of my life. When one of my business partners suggested that I should get my Mortgage Broker’s License (while juggling roles as a Builder/Developer, full-time Operation Manager, husband, and new father) I somehow found time to not only accomplish this objective, but excel at it. By combining my entrepreneurial spirit, no-nonsense approach to finance, lifelong passion for real estate development, and a deep connection to the community, I was able to see the big picture and communicate the true value of my clients’ assets and earning potential to banks and credit unions so I could secure the best possible terms for their financing needs. I see tremendous potential for Westworth to connect, secure and grow along with members of the community—particularly families with diverse real estate assets and revenue streams who can benefit from guidance on how to structure their financial matters to maximize growth.
As driven and business-oriented as I am, I place an emphasis on balancing my career and personal life. When I’m not in the office, you can expect to find me enjoying the beautiful outdoors, whether it be snowboarding, hiking, golf, or simply spending time with my loved ones. With a passion for exploring different cultures, I am an avid traveler, who is often jet-setting around the world with my young family – all while documenting the adventures on social media.
Hi, my name is Gurj Aujla, Mortgage Advisor with Westworth Financial. I have over 15 years of experience working in the financial and banking industry, specializing in Personal and Commercial banking. I joined Westworth Financial to become part of a team environment where I can collaborate and share my expertise while continuing to grow my knowledge base.
I understand and appreciate the multifaceted nature of mortgages in the financial world we reside in today. By listening to the needs of my clients, I can provide clarity, direction, and expertise to ultimately meet their financial goals. With my extensive experience in the financial world, coupled with my entrepreneurial knowledge, I strive to provide greater opportunities for my clients and surpass their goals.
Growing up on a farm in the Okanagan, my parents instilled the values of hard work, determination, and perseverance at a young age. Having this mindset has allowed me to push my own limits and boundaries within my professional and personal life. When I am not in the office, you can find me spending time with my young family enjoying the outdoors by hiking and biking local trails and exploring the lower mainland.
Jatinder S. Makkar
Hi, my name is Jatinder S. Makkar, Mortgage Advisor for Westworth Financial Corp. I grew up being around Real Estate and Financing, I’ve been in the mortgage business for 5 years and have also worked as a property appraiser. In addition, I have built houses as a registered builder. Further, I have a keen interest in holding real estate as a long-term investment. Through my experiences I’ve realized purchasing real estate requires strategy and long-term planning.
Everyone should have short-term and long-term goals for financial well-being. I’ve learned that helping people find lending solutions requires a lot of listening as everyone has different needs and circumstances. I want to hear your story, so I can find the best financial advice that works for you. I will help put that together for you with sound advice based on options tailored to your situation.
The philosophy of the team at Westworth is something that immediately struck the right chord with me. It’s important for me to be surrounded with colleagues that have high motivation, in-depth knowledge and skills. I truly believe that we should live life to our best potential everyday. The atmosphere at Westworth motivates me to be in my best element. Whether its residential, commercial, or private lending I will provide advice that’s customized for you.
Of course, hard work deserves to be rewarded. I also take great passion in spending time with my family. Family is extremely important all the way from the eldest generation to the youngest including all the friends we choose to make family through the journey.
My wife and I love watching our three boys grow as they learn important life experiences. Our family loves to travel always looking forward to the next adventure. One of the most rewarding things for me is to watch their soccer and basketball games and tournaments. I get to be their biggest fan. I also enjoy spending time following professional sports, playing golf and ball hockey in my personal leisure time.
I’ve been involved in the housing and finance market since 2003, when I became a licenced Real Estate Agent in BC. In 2006, I opened my personal construction company, Karma Homes Ltd., and to date continue to build custom homes for clients and maintain my Realtor’s license.
After becoming a Mortgage Broker in 2008, I decided to leave my current position in 2019 and joined Westworth Financial, bringing 16 years of experience in the housing and financial market. I’m able to analyze my clients to help determine their wants and needs. My own personal experience in the real estate market and construction market allows me to provide my clients with practical advice as to their needs and am able to secure them the proper and adequate finances. I’m able to assist in securing a mortgage for first-time buyers, home builders, or individuals who wish to refinance their current properties.
