Hear from our happy clients

  • I have used Mortgages.ca for both my mortgages and both times Scott has exceeded my expectations. Scott & Adam were absolutely fantastic this past time in securing me a great rate and putting my mind at ease in the process. They were able to navigate and mitigate complex issues with cross boarder signing and made the process as smooth as possible. Outstanding work by them both, I will certainly be recommending to friends + family and utilizing Mortgages.ca in future as well.

    Laura Camacho

  • James was extremely helpful from the very beginning of our home search, his guidance and the final work to obtain a great mortgage made our house hunting experience a breeze in these very unpredictable times. A special mention of Zayna who was very patient and thorough in helping us get all the paper work together!
    Our family will go them James again any time and highly recommend his and his team to all our friends and family.

    Tara Jainudeen

  • Our deadlines were incredibly tight and the pressure was on but you wouldn’t have known for a second that Sheri was stressed. She was the calm we needed to keep things moving and close our deal.

    Mike Warsak

  • I’ve been working with Steve to refinance my mortgage and I couldn’t have had a better service anywhere else. It was my third time working with him and I strongly recommend his services to anyone! He knows how to make the process as simple as possible and is always there to resolve any tricky situations, which may happen when dealing with banks. Thanks again for everything, Steve!

    Remy Leclerc

  • I was referred to James in 2018 when looking to buying our first condo and it was the best thing that could have happened to me. James helped us secure an excellent mortgage solution. We did not have a great deal of knowledge and experience in these matters and James helped us gain the understanding we needed and made the whole process very simple and friendly.

    Fast forward to the far more frightening real estate scene in 2023 when I was dreading renewing in this new market. James contacted me and went to work to find us the best options and helped us to select the best arrangement for our needs. If I had realized how much James and Mayra were able to help us, I wouldn’t have lost all the sleep worrying that I did. I knew we were in good hands. I cannot recommend them enough and they have a client for life with me. 5 stars are not enough to express my satisfaction.

  • James and Mayra were extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process of getting a mortgage! As first time buyers they spent the time to make everything easy and help us through any questions! Highly Recommended
