About Our Fredericton Insurance and Mortgage Company

Formed in 2005 by founders Kent Brewer and Stephen Morse, our Fredericton-based company serves the needs of clients across the Maritime Provinces. With Kent's background in economics and finance and Steve's background in the insurance/investment industry, these two truly make a formidable team.

Steadily, our business grows — one broker, and one client at a time. The growth of our two companies has been purely organic; no client lists or books of businesses have been purchased. We’ve mainly grown our businesses “from one kitchen table to another.”

Michelle Leesque

Michelle Levesque
Investment &  Insurance Broker

I have been guiding individuals and business owners financially since 2008. I chose to represent Mortgage Alliance Front Gate Mortgages because I do not believe in being biased or product pushing. Being able to offer every bank and insurance company’s product is so important to me. Every client no matter how big or small deserves an individual plan using the best products on the market. I have built my business always making myself available at clients' convenience whether it be going to a home at 8pm after children are settled or bringing a coffee to a contractor on a job site. Much of my business is now based on referrals because clients value this personal approach.

More About Michelle Levesque

My favorite part of being a Financial Advisor is being able to educate people on their finances, and I have been the key financial speaker at many events. You work hard for your money so it is very important you have an advisor that will manage your investments so you don’t have to postpone retirement, find you the best rates for insurance because it all adds up over time, and ensure your children’s education funds are protected against market fluctuations so it is there when they need it.


Business owners I meet with are pleasantly surprised to see how affordable it is to get income protection in the event they cannot work and see strategies to get tax free cash out of their corporation. My clients speak highly of the service I provide and it means the world to me because they are the reason I get to do what I love.

Christa Reynolds

Christa Reynolds
Investment & Insurance Broker

Christa Reynolds is on one of the more recent additions to the Front Gate Financial team and brings to the team a desire to work with people for their benefit in setting up investment plans and finding the best insurance policies to suit their situations. Christa is extremely approachable with a warm and kind nature while having the drive needed to fulfill the needs of her clients. Being a parent herself, Christa is keenly in tune with the importance of financial planning and looking ahead to the future for both her clients and their families. Christa looks forward to working with people to fulfill their needs in this venue – using her friendly personality, good work ethic and intense competitive spirit to succeed.

More about Christa Reynolds

Christa graduated from UNB with a degree in Kinesiology, but quickly discerned her true interests were in other areas. While still having a competitive spirit, she turned her efforts to the finance sector and was employed as a personal banking representative for a major banking institution for the next 10 years. After having taken a few years off to have children, Christa decided it was time to focus on other ventures and tried her hand at sales. This lacked the true feeling of helping others and Christa jumped at the opportunity to join the Front Gate Team. Outside her work, Christa loves working with the teams that the children play on – primarily hockey – having served as team manager a number of times. She displays the same passion and drive for her own family's endeavors that her clients will enjoy from her.


Navigating the path to sound financial planning may be a daunting task, but with Christa on your team, it will be both rewarding and much less stressful.
