  • You'll discover how much home you can afford. Allowing you to truly narrow and refine what homes you should be looking at.

  • Minimize or reduce waiver timelines within your offer, making you more of an ideal choice for sellers. 
  • Gives you advanced notice of any credit issues that could be repaired prior to purchase.

Calgary Mortgages

Calgary is home to some incredible mortgage brokers and of course all of the major banks in Canada operate in the city, we are also very lucky to have other financial institutions locally, including ATB, First Calgary, Servus Credit Union, and others!

When it comes to selecting the right financial institution for your next (or first mortgage) the choice isn't so easy. Many clients of ours fall into the convenience trap, that's when they simply go to their bank and are matched with a financial advisor (Who is often not even a dedicated mortgage professional) and inquire on what they can get from the bank. Sure, your bank has your business and they should be incentivized to keep you in house, that doesn't mean you're always getting the best rates, and terms in your mortgage.

This is where a mortgage brokers come into play, the first benefit is that you shouldn't be paying for their services, mortgage brokers are paid by financial institutions for bringing your business to them, much like an insurance broker. The benefit for you is that mortgage brokers we work with are putting your application in front of many lenders, including the big banks, and encouraging them to compete for your business. This system provides our clients with the best rates, and terms for their purchases.
