What a privilege to be supporting Re/Max in my capacity as a Mortgage Adviser!!
I have been an Adviser for 7 years and prior to that I was involved in the Financial Industry for 30 + years. So as you can imagine, I have seen it all and more, and can share my experience and knowledge with your clients.
Think of me as a Personal Shopper for a Mortgage – I help home buyers secure a great deal on their lending. This can mean a better interest rate, better terms, or simply a “YES” rather than a “No” from the Bank.
My role is to find you the right Loan and Lender, allowing your clients to focus on finding the right home. I can also help your clients becoming debt free sooner, and endeavour to make the mortgage process simple.
