Being our first time buying a place and getting a mortgage we were fairly scared and uninformed about everything related to that. James and his team were both very professional, friendly and helpful. Any questions and uncertainty we had we were comforted knowing that James would answer with a detailed response explaining whatever our questions were.James also worked hard to make sure he could secure us a great rate. He communicated all of the available options and helped us... go through that process. If your looking for a mortgage specialist I highly recommend James and his team!read more

James and his team were absolutely phenomenal to deal with throughout the entire process. Our situation was by no means straightforward and the amount of knowledge, patience, and professionalism they displayed really made me feel good from start to close. I can't recommend them enough.

This is was our first going through a renewal process and a lot was on our plate and the way the economy/society was due to the pandemic, there was a lot of options to review. James and his team took the time to understand our family plans in the present and future and presented all options and guided us what he felt was best suited for our family and assured we were comfortable with the decision. The process was super easy and we highly recommend him

James and his team were always there to guide us through the (often complicated) mortgage process between the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous one, every step of the way. They went above and beyond to secure us a great rate and were very helpful and communicative throughout the process. I would highly recommend their services to anyone that needs a mortgage specialist.

Steve and his team made the very overwhelming experience of buying our first house feel a lot more manageable. He listened to all of our concerns and found the best lender to meet our needs and limitations. Throughout the whole process there was no such thing as a stupid question, Steve took unfamiliar concepts and helped us make sense of them. He was available to help out whenever we needed him, which was very important in the fast-paced house hunt. Steve had our best... interests in mind the whole time and found the best mortgage arrangement for us. When we have to renew our mortgage we will definitely be coming back and I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone else looking for a mortgage.read more

Scott and James got us approved after we got poor service at our bank. They are experienced with self employed professionals and kept all their promises knowing we had a short closing. Thanks guys.

Hi James Harrison and Mayra Watrich are # 1 in my eyes . I had a bad experience with a very bad broker she lied from day one 3 weeks before closing she said i needed $30.000 more to close. I did not have. So because of her dishonesty. I would of lost my $15.000 deposit. A realtor Mike Mccarthy told me about James. Told him my story and he was very honest and professional up front. James did get me my loan before closing and a great mortgage. Thanks again James and Mayra.

Housing market is soaring like crazy and I thought I would not able to buy a house in Toronto. I reached out to Mortgage Architect after unsuccessfully dealing with various brokers. Scott Nazareth made me confident that he will buy me a house. He was incredible from beginning to end, very professional, responsive and managed to help me close on the property. He ensured that I felt at ease throughout the entire process, answered any of my questions via email and text message... and always kept me updated with the progress of the approval. He also helped me to negotiate the interest rate! I am extremely glad and grateful that I reached out to Scott. I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.read more

My partner and I worked with James and Mayra on our mortgage and they were fantastic. Both James and Mayra are great communicators and were very responsive throughout the process. They have good instincts for when to use email and when it's best to hop on a call to sort out ambiguity.I would absolutely want to go through a future mortgage process with them and recommend them to any friends or family.

Scott is the one to speak to. In my unique situation, I was concerned about a few things and Scott was able to make things happen. 5 stars to your commitment, knowledge, thoroughness and professional approach while having an understanding of the human side of things at the same time. Scott alleviated much of the stress and helped this experience be that much more pleasant. I highly recommend mortgages.ca. You will be well taken care of. Thank you Scott.

Working with James and his team was a amazing! James was extremely responsive to my many questions and made the whole process very easy and stress free. I didn't know getting a mortgage could be this smooth. Do yourself a favor and call James Harrison and his team to set you up with a mortgage. After working with banks and other brokers in the past they don't even compare to the quality of service you will receive at Mortgages.ca.

My wife and I worked with James and his team when we bought our first home in 2017. Fast forward to today (i.e. 2021), James has once again made the transition of re-financing our mortgage as easy and comfortable as the first time we've worked with him. From this, we would like to highlight the consistent professional service he brings to his clients. We have full confidence that he will always represent the best interest of his clients regardless of how the real estate... market is going.read more

We can't thank James and Myra enough for their help in getting us our mortgage!We had been dealing with another mortgage broker a few weeks before our home search. All required paperwork done, all numbers crunched, you're "good to go" we were told.We finally found the place we were looking for made an offer that was accepted then waited for the "formality" of having the mortgage approved. Well by day 4 of excuses we became extremely worried. Our place had sold, closing was... now just 3 weeks away and we still had not been approved, despite being assured our file was "good to go".We reached out to James and Myra and again submitted all the required paperwork, within a few days our mortgage (with a bridge loan in the mix) was approved!We wish we had started out with them from the beginning, the stress we would have been spared.THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!read more

Steve did an excellent job walking us through the mortgage application and closing process. He gave us good advice, was always available to answer questions and clearly enjoys what he does. He was a pleasure to work with and we would happily recommend him to anyone looking to buy their first home.

It was a pleasure to have James and Myra help us with our mortgage. They are well-organized, they prepared our file neatly and there was no last-minute rush for any missing papers. They are responsive: whenever I wrote to them I heard back from them in a matter of a few hours. They explained the whole process to us very well. There were no hidden fees/charges. Whenever we needed anything from them they acted really fast. For example, our builder's law firm had made a mistake... in the property address, so we needed revised approval letter, which they secured the very next day. Transparent professional and responsive. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.read more

BEST MORTGAGE BROKERS.Look no further, they are always so fast at responding to any concerns you have regarding the mortgage process and then the mortgage itself. They made the whole process so seamless and easy.During my application, I wanted to make a change to my mortgage very close to the closing date and they were very understanding and made it happen in the nick of time !! I am very grateful and I highly recommend James and Mayra for all your mortgage needs !

James Harrison from mortgages.ca is our go-to mortgage broker. When we first purchased our home 9 years ago, we hadn’t met James yet. We used another broker from a big name company and it was disastrous. We were first time home buyers and I felt so alone in the process. My emails were often ignored and I did not have the guidance one really needs as a first time buyer.My husband is a successful realtor in Toronto and James Harrison came highly recommended. My husband... recommends James to all of his clients as we have trusted him with our personal mortgage financing for the last two renewals. I’ve also recommended James to personal friends and they are all so thankful.James is very professional and very knowledgeable. He always responds very promptly. He makes everything seamless and stress free. He always goes above and beyond. If you’re looking for mortgage broker, look no further!read more

I can not say enough about Steve and his assistance during my journey in purchasing a place. He has been nothing but helpful and full of insights... plus he has a friendly but non-pushy demeanor that made all our correspondences very comfortable. I felt like I could ask him anything and he was always happy to answer my questions in depth and easy to understand. Highly highly recommend Steve!!

We've had a great experience working with James and the Mortgages.ca team for more than a year now, including securing a mortgage for our first home. On top of that, the team alerted us to other great opportunities, such as a program to complete our home renovations and later helped us lower our interest rate. We highly recommend the broker route for anyone buying a home!UPDATE: We worked with James’ team again to refinance. Helpful and smooth process where he provided... multiple options and got us the best rate, allowing us to make the most of our home’s value without moving. When we do sell, we’ll be returning for services from Mortgages.ca!read more

James and Zayna were great to work with. I was a first time buyer and needed a more complex mortgage setup than usual -- they went out of their way to make the process smooth and answer any questions, and were always super quick with their responses (which, in this crazy world of Toronto real estate, was very helpful). Can't recommend them enough!

The professionalism and quality relationships we had during our experience was made so much better by the involvement of our broker and his dedication to our needs and goals. We were shown compassion and understanding that made the stresses of buying a house a little less stressful. Our dreams were met and we couldn’t be happier with our experience with Mortgages.ca and Our guy Vern Bovell. We are only here because of you.ThanksEric and Lisa

Once again James has exceeded our expectations with his exceptional customer service and the ability to offer knock out rates. This is our second time using him and have referred him to family and friends. Thanks again for all your help!!
As first time homebuyers, finding the perfect home in Toronto within budget was challenging and full of learning experiences. Steve took the surprises and uncertainty out of the biggest purchase (ahem...loan) of our lives. He was able to answer all of our questions and ensure we had the information we'd need to make a decision. Trust me, as someone in financial risk management, I had A LOT of questions. And of course, No one could come close to the rate he got us. Thanks for... helping us own our dream house and a piece of this great city!read more
A great team of professionals!!!
I was referred to Steve from a colleague and I have been blown away! Just got back from seeing my lawyer who actually fist pumped me on the amazing rate we got. Aside from the low rate, as a first time home buyer, Steve spent so much time with me helping me along the way and educating me on an area I felt I didn't know a lot about. I'm a studier and he provided all the content and clarity I needed. He was only a phone call away and always stopped to take the time Trust is... everything and I feel so lucky to have had Steve during this whole process. Thank you Steve!!read more
Nothing but professionals here, looking forward to our next deal
Incredible customer service from Steve. Always picks up and prompt for meetings. Found the best rates possible and always took the time to explain the pros and cons of each alternative. My go to guy for anything mortgages related!
I’m so lucky I got in touch with Steve Harrison from Mortgages dot ca before signing anything with my bank or the broker my agent referred me to. Steve's ability and willingness to answer all of my questions as they came up day after day, was amazing. He was a great help throughout the process and even found me a significantly better rate than my bank or my realtor's broker. I want to encourage anyone who is in the market to contact Steve Harrison.
