Are you stressed trying to figure out the steps to buying your first home in Barrie? Have you been to the bank and have no better direction? Have you been procrastinating getting a pre-approval because you’re so confused? It doesn’t need to be this way; a mortgage broker is the most effective way to get the best-priced and best-structured mortgage available. A broker can shop around at multiple lenders to find the mortgage for your situation, taking advantage of volume discounts at many of the top banks, trust companies & credit unions. A good broker will take into account your current & future housing needs, to ensure that you don’t get hit with excessive pre-payment penalties due to a change in circumstances.
A mortgage broker is particularly valuable if you’re self-employed, a real estate investor or had credit issues in the past. Not only do they work with Canada’s top banks but also have access to private mortgage funds to help with the trickiest situations.
Unfortunately all brokers are not alike; you need to find one you trust, is knowledgeable & has plenty of experience in finding great mortgages. Long-term brokers have had a chance to build relationships with many of their lenders which tends to ease the approval process. A face-to-face meeting early on is highly recommended and you’ll find that communication is key in the mortgage approval process. A broker that will take calls or meet after-hours or on weekends is definitely a bonus.
When using Darren's broker services you'll find someone who is professional (Georgian, Laurentian & Ryerson graduate), locally focused (Rotary Club of Barrie, Barrie Chamber of Commerce committee member, sports coach), experienced (more than 5 years in the industry) & reputable (AMP designation, CAAMP member, IMBA member).
Darren has an excellent track record, with 100's of very satisfied clients in Barrie & beyond. Here's one from repeat customers, one of his first in 2009:
"It seemed that Darren understood our needs and the needs of our family even before we did. We liked that he made us feel that we and our business were a priority. He was quick to respond to our questions and calls, and he was clear and concise when explaining the ins and outs of our mortgage, insurance options, and when giving us advice about future choices that we will be making about purchasing our next home. Darren made us feel so comfortable and confident that we’ve already told friends and family to call Darren first!"
