Calgary Mortgage and Finance

As your REALTOR, I will tell you that the financing portion of your home buying experience is the most critical first step.  Over the years, I found that this was so important that I pursued and obtained my mortgage license so that I could gain a better understanding of the complete picture, write better offers and reduce risk.  I knew that if I did not have the knowledge and the license to back it up, that my clients would not be getting the best service possible.

I could spend hours writing about why you should use a Top Calgary Mortgage Broker, but here are just a few of the top reasons:

  • Calgary Mortgage Broker services are free (they are paid by the banks).
  • OPTIONS! – They have access to more than 50 lenders who compete for your business rather than you applying to be a customer and accepting their retail rates and terms.
  • They are going to review your entire financial picture to ensure you are getting the best financial product possible to meet your goals.
  • Better rates, better, more complete information
