Business operating in Lynn Valley since: 2013
What do customers like about your business?
I offer honest, unbiased advice on one of the biggest investments they will ever make – talking to a mortgage broker is like visiting all of the banks. credit unions and trust companies all at once. And my services are almost always free!
What do you like about your customers?
Many of my customers are young families in Lynn Valley – customers often become friends and friends become customers.
The mortgage market can be very confusing and more than a little bit intimidating – most people are surprised by what they don’t know. I help my customers by navigating through the noise and finding the mortgage solution that best fits with their financial plan.
