“Dara, I just wanted you to know that all is said and done and I thank you very much for your work and professionalism. And of course, if the time comes that someone I know is looking for magic…. I will obviously send them to you.”

Jennifer

“Hi guys, this Mortgage Broker [Dara] got us into a 5 yr closed for 4.99% a few months ago (when our existing bank couldn’t touch it). He was a pleasure to deal with, his work is excellent and now the rates are even better….

I would recommend his services without hesitation and I know you Real Estate moguls may need some financing or re-financing from time to time. If you are interested, he can send you weekly mortgage updates to keep you apprised of what is going on.”

Leanne   (In an email to a number of Realtors….)

“We have, with Dara’s help, just closed on a new property at UBC. Dara was recommended to us by my sister and brother-in-law and we are very happy they made that recommendation.

Our financing was not small, and our circumstances were unusual. In short, we made a “big ask” of Dara, and he more than stepped up to the plate.

He was personable, resourceful and very responsive throughout the transaction and we always felt we were receiving timely, sensible and proactive advice.

He is a real asset to your company and we will not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

John and Esther

THANK YOU!!!…. for everything you’ve done and for putting up with our first time homebuyer quirks! You certainly made the process easy to understand and gave us the confidence to plunge into the biggest debt we’ve ever had!! …. LOL… I mean that in a good way!! All joking aside, we really appreciate your dedication and expertise and have already passed your name onto others!

M.K.

“Great Results, Personable, High Integrity. Dara did an excellent job in providing exactly what I needed in a mortgage. He started by beating all of the bank rates by a long-shot, then provided a better rate than was in our contract because rates dropped the day before closing. I would recommend Dara’s services to anyone who needs a mortgage.”

Jim Tessman

“I would like to express my gratitude to you, for all the effort and dedication that you have put into finding me the best mortgage. I’m very happy with your work and without a doubt I’ll recommend you as a mortgage broker to my friends.”

Javier Garcia

“Dara, it was a pleasure to work with you for a second time. Your efficiency and effectiveness are outstanding. Thank you very much for making the mortgage process simple for us.”

Javier Garcia

“Dara was very helpful and quick in getting back to me… I was pre-approved for a mortgage some time ago but when that expired I thought the process would become drawn out and time consuming. However, I saw a place I liked and was given the green light to make an offer the very next day.

Why go to a bank when that level of service is available from Dara. I will recommend him to others without hesitation.”

Jeff N

“Dara’s personable, honest and straight forward advice gave us reassurance, throughout the purchasing process, that his primary focus was on providing the best mortgage for us.”

Matthew Wood

“Thank you for always being so reliable Dara.”

Kim Mara

“Dara, thanks again for all your help and support with this new purchase. You made things very easy.”

Marco

“I’m very grateful for your hard work and perseverance in securing my second mortgage. It was a stressful time for me and your efforts, and success, greatly eased that stress! With much appreciation.”

Judy

“I just wanted to give you some positive feedback as per my experience with you and going through a mortgage broker.

It was my brother who had recommended you from his experience a few years ago when he needed a mortgage. I was hesitant to go through a broker as my previous experience was very negative. On my brother’s reassurance I did contact you via email to qualify for pre-approval before I started looking for a home.

This first step was very positive and pre-approval was an easy process with very little paperwork needed and quick-turn around time. The mortgage rate was also very competitive and lower than my own bank quoted.

After months of searching I finally had an accepted offer to purchase a home with the owners asking for less than a week for removal of all subjects. I emailed you on a Sunday afternoon and you called back in under 5 minutes. You had a positive, professional and easy going attitude, and happy to help, even with such a short deadline.

While I was also fairly prepared with more paperwork on my end, you still made it a very stress free experience, leading me through the process with less than a 72 hour acceptance/confirmation. My realtor was surprised to have the paperwork ready in such a short time.
Upon meeting you to sign the paperwork, you also took the extra step to go over all of the financial next-steps and prepare me for a final bank draft total. You were almost exact, and so I was able to avoid the “sticker shock” when the lawyer confirmed the final number owing upon completion.

Moving forward I will be recommending you to family, friends, coworkers etc. I would not be surprised if my realtor also brought you the occasional client needing expedited service.

Thank you again for your service and support and all of the extra attention to make the purchase of my new home a really great experience.”
