MORTGAGE BROKERS WORK FOR YOU
Unlike the branch Mortgage Broker, who is paid by the bank to sell their products, a Mortgage Broker works for YOU! My job is to work as a link between you and the lender. I’ll filter through the offerings to find you the best rate and product for your specific needs, versus you having to go from bank to bank yourself. Best part is that my services are FREE! This means you get all my expertise (I’ve been a broker for 15+ years), at no cost to you!
MORTGAGE BROKERS CARE FOR THEIR CLIENTS
The reason I love this industry and have had so much longevity in my career, is because I want to help my clients get what they need. Home is the most important place to all of us, and I know helping people into a home, with a great mortgage, is a special job. It’s important to me that my clients feel that I’ve taken the time to understand what they’re looking for, and that I’ve hit the mark in finding this for them, as the majority of my business is done through word-of-mouth.
MORTGAGE BROKERS ARE LICENSED PROFESSIONALS
It might surprise you to know that bank Mortgage Agents are not required to have any formal training or licensing. While some lenders do provide in-house training, however this varies from the provincially regulated course that mortgage brokers are required to pass. As a Mortgage Broker, I also continue to maintain my education through license renewals and educational courses that are mandated by my professional body (similar to your accountant, doctor, etc). As a result, a Mortgage Broker provides expert advice you can trust!
MORTGAGE BROKERS HAVE GREATER ACCESS TO RATES
As a Mortgage Broker with Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Excellence, I have access to 90+ lenders, while the bank’s employees can only access their particular lender’s products. This can mean a big difference in not only rates, but as importantly mortgage terms for my clients! My job as your mortgage broker is to understand your plans today, and in the future, and find the perfect mortgage terms to match this plan, while shopping the chartered banks, trust companies and credit unions we work together with. I want you to understand all your options, not just one option.
MORTGAGE BROKERS FOCUS ON MORTGAGES
All I do is mortgages; I live and breathe home ownership! Bank staff are often trained with a focus on cross-selling. While you may have booked an appointment to discuss a mortgage, many times they will focus on other bank products such as credit cards, insurance, RRSP, lines of credit, etc. This can sometimes be helpful, but many potential homeowners may find it overwhelming or pushy; especially when they are specifically looking for a single product – a mortgage. Since mortgages are my sole focus it’s my duty to stay up to date with product and policy changes with all our banks across the board, which means I may know about a product that will make or break your plans of home ownership.
MORTGAGE BROKERS OFFER FLEXIBLE HOURS
ThThe saying “bankers hours” exists for a reason, and these restrictive hours can make it hard to book an appointment. My business has been structured in a way that makes it easy for clients all over the country to complete their mortgage with me no matter their work schedule. Since meeting in person can be challenging, video calls and a series of recorded videos will guide you through the process, on your schedule.
