  • Assurance
    A thorough pre-approval and working with an experienced broker can mean the difference between becoming a homeowner, having the best mortgage for your needs and a positive experience. For military members who can move frequently, I coordinate the entire mortgage process, present options, accommodate various time zones and can make the process easy even if you and your spouse are in different locations.
  • Time
    The process goes very quickly once you make an offer to buy a house. Being thoroughly prepared in advance will make your experience much smoother. For military members, house hunting trips are short. My research skills and lender relationships will help you get the right mortgage so you can spend more time finding your perfect home in the best neighbourhood.
  • Free
    There's no charge to you for my services on typical residential mortgage transactions. The lender pays the Mortgage Broker and it's not added to your mortgage. My unbiased, independent advice is a free value.
Why Should You Use My Services?
Negotiation. I have strong lender relationships, which is to your advantage when I negotiate your mortgage.
 
Knowledge. Mortgages are not created equal. Rate is not the only important factor. 

Understanding. I am a homeowner, too. I have renewed and refinanced, bought and sold properties. I understand this is the biggest investment of your life. and for military families I also live the same lifestyle as a spouse myself. 
 
Environment. My office building is LEED certified, designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in human and environmental health, including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. When possible, I work from my home office and offer video and phone conference appointments reducing travel and minimizing traffic.
 
Paperless. As an ongoing effort to protect the environment, my business is run almost entirely paperless.
 
Military. As a spouse of a Canadian Armed Forces member, I have a deep understanding of mortgage needs for military families because I live the lifestyle myself.
