“James acted as our mortgage broker recently. He impressed us with his professionalism, persistence in advocating on our behalf and finally succeeding in securing the loan we asked for. Nothing was too much trouble for James, he kept us in the loop and made himself always available at all hours. I would be very happy to recommend James to anyone seeking assistance with securing a loan. “

Mike Skalsky

“James was our main man when we came to refinance recently, getting access to equity and arranging a loan for our new investment property purchase. He was able to quickly understand what we were looking for and to recommend a couple of different packages for us to consider. In these difficult bank times, James was able to efficiently and diligently navigate us through the hoops we needed to jump through, to successfully settle what we think is a great outcome. He was available all hours and nothing was too difficult. Great job James, thank you!!”

“James is the best Mortgage Broker I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. An honest guy, who is never too busy to answer my call, help clarify legal/financial jargon, or stop by to make sure paperwork was all in order. James successfully secured our second home loan, refinanced our existing loan and managed to get us all the features we wanted, at a very competitive rate. James made the process low stress and I always felt he had our best interest at heart. I’ve already passed James’ number onto all of my friends, and can’t recommend him highly enough. If you are in the market, do yourself a favour and contact James.”

Our goal was obtained and we would recommend James to anyone seeking advice on obtaining the right loan for them.”
