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 another mortgage broker to buy our home. Steve helped us refinance recently and we cannot believe the difference.Steve helps you through the whole process and understands exactly what the client wants/needsVery professional and timely and felt to be important. If I did not know any better I would say I was his only client at the time because he gives you so much attentionDo not waste time with anyone else, this will be the best choice you ever... makeI will continue to use Steve for anything mortgage relatedread more
The best in the business. Steve is professional, incredibly thoughtful and responsive in all matters, and has gone above and beyond to help me with several mortgages over the past number of years. I highly recommend him to everyone looking for a sincere customer advocate!
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
Had a wonderful experience working with Mortgages.ca. James and team were so incredibly helpful, professional and detail oriented. They completely set my mind at ease and got us to a great outcome! Couldn't recommend more highly!
Steve was very insightful. He really took the time to understand our needs and helped us think outside the box. With his guidance he saved us a lot of money and set us up for future success.
Had a great experience with James and Mayra at Mortgages.ca. And despite being a challenging customer, they were patient and accommodating with me throughout the entire process. Would highly recommend.
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
Had a wonderful experience getting our mortgage with James Harrison. This is the second time we had James help us and both times we have been extremely happy. He promptly answered all our questions and took the time to explain different options available to us. Highly recommend working with him and his team!
Only person I trust with my mortgage business. AAA+ service and guidance on the right moves for me and all my clients. The entire team makes the process seamless and easy.
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 his team are helpful, thorough, responsive and just plain lovely to work with. While confirming a mortgage in this crazy market, they moved quickly to align with offer dates and provide sound advice along the way. highly recommend!
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!
We couldn't be happier with Mortgages.ca and James and Mayra. Extremely professional and knowledgeable, they made the whole process super easy from start to finish and got us a fantastic rate. Highly recommended!!
Scott Nazareth was awesome from the start to my wife and I when we were looking to buy our first house. He was always super responsive to our questions whether a call or email and made the whole process a complete breeze. We secured an unreal rate also!!! Highly recommended
James and his assistant Mayra did a great job on our mortgage! They were very honest about what I could afford and responded at all times of the day and night to questions I had. To top it all off he got me a great rate and even sent a gift basket to congratulate me on my new home.Would definitely recommend!
I will highly recommend James Harrison and his team Scott Nazareth @ mortgage.ca.Scott handled all our paper work . He was very professional and patient and answered all are queries and explained everything detailed . With all the follow work and his patience We felt very comfortable working with him. He closed our deal so smoothly and we are very happy that we choose the right brokerage company. Wishing him and his team all the good luck for future.
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
James and team were excellent with my first mortgage and subsequent refinancing. Very responsive and clear answers to what may be basic questions from first time buyers, highly recommend and will use James again in the future.
I've dealt with Steve for my initial mortgage (4 years ago) and again when I went to re-finance recently and Steve & his team were always willing to explore a variety of options and to accommodate our timelines, preferences and schedules and particular made navigating the complexities of a re-financing during the virtual environment as seamless as possible. I would definitely recommend Steve & team, and will likely go to him again in the future.
Great experience- professional and super pleasant to deal with! Highly recommend.
Both James and Zayna were incredibly helpful with this process, walking us through everything and spending the time to make sure our decision was the right one. As first time home buyers it made this big step so much more enjoyable knowing we were in good hands. Would highly recommend their services.
Working with James and his team was a dream! James was extremely responsive to our (many!) questions and gave us great advice. Most importantly, he found us a great mortgage that made it possible for us to buy our dream home. We would highly recommend working with James if you get the chance.
Worked w/James & team recently and had a great experience. Being new to this market, I was full of basic (& sometimes silly) questions and James/team were full of patience. They were very prompt in responding to my emails and phone calls. I've had a great experience and recommend their service to anyone in need. Thanks again, James!
Steve was excellent to deal with and always made himself available to discuss any questions or concerns. The whole mortgage process felt very seamless and pain free.2021 Update: Steve was once again an incredibly helpful resource and trusted advisor when guiding us through the steps required for the mortgage application process.
We've been dealing with banks and their Mortgage "experts" our entire home ownership lives, and those relationships have always left us frustrated because we knew that we weren't getting the best mortgage deal for us. Working with Mortgages.ca, and James Harrison specifically, was a breath of fresh air knowing that we had somebody working for our best interests! We now enjoy our properties much more knowing that we absolutely got the best rates, and deals that we could for... our mortgages, along with getting to keep more of our money instead of the banks getting it. Not only that it was personalized care from start to finish, but they were extremely clear in what they needed from us every step of the way. My husband and I both agree that we will only work with Mortgages.ca going forward.read more
James and Mayra are a great team. Responsive, knowledgeable and easy to work with. James came up with and option that hadn't even crossed my mind. Just what you need.
Steve was incredible to deal with! At the last second we needed to make a substantial change to our mortgage. Steve jumped at the opportunity to help and worked late to get in contact with the bank. Without his overtime and critical problem solving we might have had to push our closing date. He stayed calm and leaned on his relationships to make it happen. There aren't a lot of mortgage brokers or people from the bank who would ever give their time like that. My husband and... I are very thankful and will continue to use Steve for everything in the future.read more
Scott & James,I just wanted to thank you for all your help this past year not only for my clients but for my own mortgage needs as well. In most cases many of the scenarios were challenging and I was able to rely not only on your professionalism but the personal service you always provide.I greatly appreciate you always being able to get the job done (even through a worldwide pandemic), and leveraging the best rates through the multiple lenders you work with by creating... a bespoke strategy for each client.Looking forward to sharing another successful year, thank you again.Jason - Royal LePageread more
10/10 would recommend James to anyone looking for a broker. Straight forward and responsive with great results.
Another extraordinary experience working with Steve and Zayna. Steve helped us buy our first home in 2019 and we had such an exceptional experience we contacted him when considering a refinance and buying our first investment property. Steve went above and beyond, always happy to call and take his time guiding us through every step and our countless questions. He even intervened when we had an issue with the appraiser and fought on our behalf to get our home reassessed... resulting in our successful refinance. He was super supportive with our first rental property purchase and provided very helpful guidance on planning our investment path. We also referred my mom to her and because of Steve's amazing support, she finally felt confident enough to buy her first condo, a lifelong dream of hers. Needless to say he also got us all amazing rates! Steve treats you like a VIP no matter what you are buying and he happily has our highest recommendation. We look so forward to continuing our journey with him and refer all our family and friends with total confidence. It simply doesn't get better!read more
I had a great experience working with James and Mayra. They walked me through every step of the process and they took time to answer every question. Buying a home can be a cumbersome process but it was smooth sailing with this team and I highly recommend their expertise.
I had the pleasure of dealing with Scott Nazareth. He was clear and concise with what he wanted from me to deal with my refinancing. I highly recommend Mortgages.ca. Great job Scott!
My partner and I worked with Scott for a good chunk of the year that we were looking for a house. Although we went with one of our banks in the end for our mortgage, we were very impressed by Scott's knowledge, patience, and good nature. It was a pleasure working with him and I highly recommend his services.
To sum it up quickly: Mortgages.ca checks all the boxes. HIGHLY recommended!The details:James, Mayra and the whole team spent a great deal of time with us not only on the phone but via email to help us to understand the current landscape, to explore all of our options, and to make an informed decision regarding mortgage products with all of the pros and cons. James is not "coin-operated", meaning he's not focused exclusively on closing your deal and moving on to the next... one; he truly cares about making sure you get the best product for your needs. They also went the extra mile and gave us money out of their own pocket to cover the difference between what was supposed to be our final payout from the financial institution we ended up choosing and what we actually received. I can't say enough about much we enjoyed working with this great company.read more
I worked with Scott to get a better rate than my current lender was offering on a refinance of my mortgage. Knowledgeable, quick to respond to emails, pleasant to work with. Would recommend mortgages.ca
James & Zayna from Mortgages.ca made our house-buying experiences very seamless. As first-time home buyers, they walked us through the entire process and made sure to keep us updated at every step. We really appreciated their quick response and transparency.
Steve at Mortgages.ca was an absolute key part of our successful house hunt. He took the time to make sure we fully understood our financing options, introduced us to options we were the best fit, and was with us every step of the way on the house purchase journey. He had exceptional turn around time and took a genuine interest in making sure we got the best deal and mortgage possible. He was always a call or text away.
Scott did an amazing job as our mortgage broker. As first time home buyers, my fiance and I initially felt intimidated at the prospect of buying a house in the GTA but Scott made the process easy, guiding us through the mortgage process and ensuring we got the best possible deal. He was very responsive to all of our questions and requests and extremely knowledgeable. We could not have been happier with Scott and would not hesitate to work with him in the future.
It was a pleasure working with James. He made the mortgage process incredibly easy and was very professional and responsive. On top of that, he got me the best rates. I would recommend James to anyone.
I had the pleasure of working with James and his team to secure my first mortgage. As a first-time homebuyer, I had many questions - luckily, James was very knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive. James and Zayna also made sure my paperwork was completed smoothly and in a timely manner. I couldn't have asked for better service. Thank you!

Steve and his team at Mortgages.ca offer exceptional service and professional advise in all things mortgage. This is the 3rd time we have worked with Steve and besides his expert advise, he was able to connect us with industry experts for all our needs (we needed a lawyer) thus making the re-financing process carefree. Last but not least he got us a rate that we didn't believe existed! Thank you Steve!
I would absolutely recommend Steve to anyone. No question was insignificant to him; his knowledge and expertise helped me immensely and he got me an outstanding rate. Steve always picked up the phone or responded immediately to email. He is highly professional, very responsive and an extremely nice person.
Mortgages.ca and the very personableJames Harrison have always offered a quick response to any query, in-depth knowledge of mortgage options and concerns, and excellent service to the clients we have successfully referred. Looking forward to many more!
Outstanding service. Steve Harrison went above and beyond. He was always available and answered every phone call or text immediately. We had a few issues which Steve easily solved for us. Would highly recommend.
After having a very negative experience with a banks mortgage devision. Steve was exactly what we were looking for. Steve was excellent at answering our questions quickly and clearly. His professionalism gave us the confidence to make an aggressive offer which ended up being successful in the purchase of our 1st home. Thank you Steve, would recommend to any one.
We are very happy with all the customer service, hard work and dedication from James and Laurie. I was able to ask all the important questions and get all the right answers as this was our 1st time buying our 1st home! The efficient and effective work really allowed me to feel at ease that I was getting the best service, rate and lender to make my dreams a reality! I recommend them for all future buyers.

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
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
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.
