I have to say its been such an easy process for renewing my mortgage with you handling it. I thought it was going to be a daunting process so I really appreacite it.
Sandeep from Calgary August 2014
Nalie Nguyen has provided fantastic advice and service. This is my first house mortgage and I'm glad I came to Nalie. These are some qualities I noticed about Nalie: Very quick to respond, and always there when you need her. She helped me to understand all the terms inside the mortgage commitment letter which I found difficult to understand. She is professional and extremely competent. She helped me to get the best mortgage rate. I would sincerely recommend her as a mortgage broker as she is truly excellent at what she does. My fiancé and I will move to our new house next month, and it's 100% as a result of the hard work, high work ethic and standard that Nalie possess. THANK YOU, Nalie; you made a significant difference in our lives. I give her, 5 out of 5 points.

Thanks Nalie! Really a great experience. I can see why my brother so highly recommended you. Thanks again.
Todd from Alberta March 2016
Nalie Nguyen was awesome to deal with throughout the entire mortgage renewal process, as I was switching from one lender to a new lender. Nalie's level of professionalism is something that is really hard to find these days. She sent me email updates regularly during the process, and also answered and returned my phone calls promptly when I had questions. I would most definitely go and see Nalie again for any other mortgage needs that I may have in the future. I highly recommend her.

It was my pleasure to write a review and post it on Facebook. Your high level of professionalism, strong work ethic and clear communication were all appreciated. Lori and I are grateful for all of your time and effort. Much appreciated!
Ryan from Alberta October 2016
I was skeptical about applying for a mortgage with a Company that I am 800km away from. But let me tell you it was the BEST decision I have every made when it came to Mortgage renewal. I made the phone call and was greeted by a wonderful agent name SANDY WU. She made this experience worth sharing with everyone.The whole process was very quick. If I had questions she was just a phone call away and answered every question. I will definitely be using them in the future and I always tell friends and family about my awesome experience with True North Mortgage.
Mohit from Alberta November 2016
Good Morning Sandy, Seeing how great True North has been to me and my parents with the mortgages, I have cc'd my colleague Ali in this email who is looking to get an idea for how much he'd be eligible for and what rates, and I couldn't recommend him anyone else but True North. I hope you can provide him with the same exceptional rates and experience as I received.
Aleksey and Katia December 2016
Thank you for all your help, extra work and for keeping us updated about what is going on. It is such a pleasure to work with you!
I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the mortgage process was completed. I appreciate all your help in this significant transition. Your efforts made my life easier during a stressful time – Much appreciated!
Lydia & Craig from Calgary January 2014
Thanks for everything...your service and attention to detail has been wonderful! We appreciate it.
Deborah from Calgary November 2013
Winston, I have to say it has been really great working with you! As a first time home buyer and someone that is not familiar with the process involved with buying a house you have been great at explaining all the details and keeping me up to date through every stage of the process. I will definitely be highly recommending you to my friends! Thank you so much!”
Harinder from Calgary April 2013
Winston: I am grateful to you that you acknowledge every email\ fax that I send to you. I am grateful to you that you always keep me in the loop and that you communicate regularly. It Is not very common to find service like this. Keep up the good work. Please forward my compliments to your manager. I hope he is able to retain a professional such as you on his team for a very long time.
Pamela from Calgary July 2014
Thank you for all of your help and patience. Buying a home can be stressful at the beginning, as so many things happen at once. So I appreciate your understanding throughout the process. It was a pleasant mortgage experience, and I will definitely pass the name around
Nancy from Calgary June 2014
Thanks very much for all of your help through this process. I will be sure to let my friends know about you and True North, and the high level of service.
Scott from Calgary July 2014
Thank you sooo much for what you are doing. You/TNM have indeed gone above and beyond to help me. Your service and kind gesture are very much appreciated.
Brad from Calgary October 2014
Awesome thanks Winston! You've been extremely efficient and a pleasure to deal with, so I'll be looking at utilizing you as a referral source from time to time.
Brian from Calgary December 2014
It's been great dealing with you. I'll be sure to send referrals your way.
Leanne from Calgary December 2014
Winston, thank you very much, it was a pleasant experience working with you. Thanks for the great rate, I figured this would be a bit of a painful experience and it wasn't that at all. In fact you made it very easy for us.
Andrew from Calgary March 2015
I've had a lot of friends who battled to get a good rate from their banks which is why I came to you and I wasn't disappointed. You were also very patient and professional with me, despite the difficulties I was bringing by not having everything ready when needed. Things moved faster than I thought they would and I was taken by surprise. Thanks again Winston. I'll recommend you guys to anyone I know that's looking to buy a house.
Sharon from Calgary June 2015
Dealing with True North Mortgage has been a fantastic experience. My mortgage specialist was Winston Leung and he was incredibly knowledgable and quick to respond to the numerous questions I had. With my previous mortgages I had dealt directly with my bank so I was a little nervous about going through a broker; however, Winston was very patient explaining how the process worked and very thorough with his explanations. The rate he was able to get was better than I expected and much better than what the big banks had to offer. Overall this has been one of the smoothest transactions I've had and the customer service I received was phenomenal. I have already told numerous friends and family about True North and would recommend their service to anyone.
Tam from Calgary July 2015
Thank you so much for your help and for securing us a great rate. We appreciate your prompt communication. It has been my pleasure. Thanks also for putting up with the completion delays and appraisal miscues.
Terry from Camrose August 2015
I would like to commend True North for the fantastic service and help I received on my mortgage transfer. Winston was courteous, helpful and got me a great rate. I look forward to a long partnership with them. I would highly recommend them.
Ken from Calgary April 2016
Me and the future wifey were looking to get a pre-approval and Mr. Simon Phui at True North Mortgage worked his magic and now we move in next week! We were shopping around for rates with other brokers and Simon got us the best rate with the terms we were looking for. He made the process so easy and effortless. Will definitely go back to him when our term is up! And will also tell our friends who to talk to when they are looking for a renewal. Thanks Simon!
Yen from Calgary April 2016
Simon Phui was such a pleasure to work with on my recent mortgage renewal/refinance. My bank (one of the Big 5) tried to sway me away from True North, citing lack of service but that couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, it was much more efficient to deal with Simon over email (he was so quick to respond and always a phone call away) vs making appointments during bankers hours to meet with an advisor. Plus, the bank could not match the rate that TNM was able to secure! It was a great experience going through True North, Simon is a top notch professional that went above and beyond to address my concerns and make the transaction as seamless as possible. Highly recommended!
Sharon from Calgary May 2016
Fantastic experience. Simon and Celeste made this experience very painless!
Richard & Gloria from Ontario April 2014
Wow! That was painless. So much easier than dealing with our bank. And you were so helpful, friendly and responsive. You offer a fantastic service and we can’t imagine anything you could do better. If you had dealt with our current bank rep, you would understand how much we appreciate having dealt with you.
Adnan from Calgary April 2014
It was really a wonderful experience dealing with TNM. I appreciate your professionalism and quick response to the mortgage related queries. Hope your assistance and co-ordination will continue in the future as well!
Matthew from Calgary March 2014
Laura, Thank you. I never expected that I could complete the whole mortgage process in less than 3 days. Often times, we are so used to going back and forth, that one is skeptical when told that “everything” will be ready within a few days. You kept your word and I am very grateful for that. Once again thank you very much and keep up the good work.
Dmitri from Ontario February 2014
Laura, Thank you very much for your persistence and patience while we worked through this mortgage. As someone who prefers email based communication, your response times and details were spot on. We will definitely keep you in mind for our future mortgage needs. Thank you, Dmitri
Ali from Calgary February 2014
Laura - Thank you for all of your support! We really appreciate the time and effort you put into ensuring our mortgage approval. This was a tedious process but it all worked out and we are very appreciative! Have a great day! Ali
Robin from Calgary July 2014
Thank you very much for your help and support in securing the mortgage and making us proud owners of a house for the very first time. Your prompt feedback and support did the magic for us. I truly appreciate it.
Eric from Calgary July 2014
Wow, thanks so much Laura. I really appreciate your hard work. Being a first time home-buyer, I had a lot of questions and no idea what the process was, but you made it easy and helped me along the way. Thanks for working hard to make this happen.
Scott from Calgary July 2014
Thank you so much for everything you have done!! Extremely happy with all the services you have provided! We will be moving our new (rental )mortgage to true north when renewal comes up in February. Again, thank you so much for making this process easy and stress free.
Leanne from Calgary September 2014
Thank you Laura, this has been a wonderful experience. As first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and you were very professional, patient and fast! Thank you for your persistence with getting us the best rate in a short period of time.
Hossein from Calgary October 2014
I could not be happier with the services you have provided. I have been very satisfied and I have been recommending my friends contact True North Mortgage for their mortgage.
Janine from Calgary October 2014
Laura – you are a rock star! You guided me through this process painlessly and I am very grateful. I would recommend True North and you in particular in a heartbeat. Thanks for all your help.
Jason from Calgary October 2014
Thanks for your help through this process. I have already referred you to a co-worker. The rate and mortgage you provided to me was better than what his bank could provide.
Andy from Calgary December 2014
Thanks Laura, I'm certainly happy with the service and will recommend you to all my acquaintances. I appreciate the prompt attention to my application and quick turnaround.
Paul from Calgary February 2015
Great customer service. Quick and responsive when I had questions. Overall happy with the service and the rate. Thank you for your help Laura.
Victor from Calgary March 2015
Laura, I'm very happy with your customer service. Everything went smooth and you kept me informed of every step of the way, thank you!
Preston from Calgary April 2015
Laura, thank you so very much for your prompt and pleasant service. This is now the second time that I have conducted my business through True North and the second time that I have been completely satisfied with the manner in which I have been dealt with. I will continue to promote True North to my friends and family.
Ivy from Calgary July 2015
Laura, Thank you very much, I have always been greatly impressed and satisfied with the hassle-free service that you have provided me. Greatly appreciated!
Hans from Calgary July 2015
Laura, Right from the moment we were inquiring about a mortgage, Laura was very aggressive with a great rate as well as confidence she would help us get approved. When we hit road blocks she knew exactly what to do next. We needed the deal done quickly and she executed. Very pleased with the experience.
Vince from Calgary July 2015
I’ve worked with Laura from True North Mortgage for a few mortgage deals now and she has always been able to get me the best rates. She always reply promptly when working on a deal, which I appreciate so much. I have always referred Laura to friends who are looking for a mortgage and I will continue to do so in the future. Thanks and keep up the good work, Laura!
C from Calgary September 2015
Thank you so much Laura, I have been thrilled with the quick and successful response you were able to get for me. I will recommend you to all of my friends, family and co-workers. Great Rate and Fast service.
Tanya from Calgary January 2016
I have had the great pleasure of working with Laura Clarke from the Calgary Place branch. She provided me with excellent customer service. She was patient and explanatory as this was my first experience with a mortgage broker. I would recommend Laura Clarke to friends, family and in passing. Thank you for the outstanding service!
Nino from Calgary January 2016
Laura helped me to renew my mortgage promptly and cordially. The process was very easy and quick!
Bisi from Calgary January 2016
From my first chat with Laura till the close of the transaction Laura was exceptional. She was prompt and worked with great enthusiasm. She ensured I got a lower rate even though I already signed documents for a higher rate. She was very patient with me and answered every question honestly and to the best of her ability. I would recommend Laura and True North mortgage to anyone. I was not disappointed at all and I can boldly say you will get an exceptional service and the lowest possible rate.
Dean from Calgary February 2016
Laura, you have been just awesome to deal with. I work with people every day and I know how trying it can be. It makes it so much easier when you work with someone who actually cares and helps. Again, Thank you!
Brian from Calgary April 2016
I have been dealing with TNM now for 5 years strong beginning with my first home and more recently my renewal. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Laura Clarke who was able to work with me via e-mail and accommodate my needs as a shift worker who typically sleeps during business hours. Great service aside, at the end of the day you’re looking for a company that can offer you the best rate & terms. TNM was able to achieve that goal. In a very competitive market where everybody is trying to sell you their services, it’s difficult to find someone you can trust. I highly recommend you give TNM a chance to get the mortgage services you need at the rate that you want. Good luck! Cheers!
Jenelle from Calgary April 2016
Great customer service. This was a very enjoyable experience. You can tell Laura loves what she does and cares about her clients. Thank you!
Katie from Calgary March 2016
Used True North - and got a great rate. Even better, we received fantastic service from Laura! She was always available and whenever we spoke she was informative, helpful and pleasant (even if I was being a little difficult). Thanks for everything Laura and True North.
Karthick from Calgary April 2016
Laura Clarke was very helpful. I went to them with only 10 days remaining for renewal. She got me the best rate and took care of the whole process.
Sophie from Calgary March 2016
This is the second time we use True North Mortgage and once again, great customer service. Laura worked hard to get us the lowest rate possible.
Andrew from Calgary February 2016
Laura was great throughout the process! Excellent customer service! She definitely gets my recommendation!
Simon from Calgary February 2016
Thank you Laura for the great service! Highly recommended.
Nathan from Calgary March 2016
Laura Clarke has helped us with several mortgages over the last few years. We are very happy with the service and the rates.
Dennis and Carrie from Calgary August 2016
We signed all of the paperwork last night and we are good to go. We can't thank you enough for all of your help and patience with us as we pestered you with questions. This renewal/refinancing was the easiest we have ever done and it has been a pleasure to work with you. Thanks again - enjoy the rest of your day!
James from Ontario September 2016
This is my second interaction with True North. The first was with Gershwin in Toronto who helped me with my first home purchase / mortgage in Canada. This time I worked with Laura Clark (out of Calgary) on my renewal. Very helpful, clearly communicated the options and made it a pain-free process to switch lender (which was so welcome given the unfavourable terms offered by my initial lender). Would highly recommend.
Jasmin from Ontario October 2016
It was simple. All our contacts went thru e-mails. They offered me the type of mortgage I was looking for under best conditions I could find on the market! I was working with Laura Clarke from Calgary office. She was polite and quick to answer any of my questions. The process was easy and simple. Thank you Laura for getting me a great rate!
David from Ontario June 2016
We have been dealing with True North Mortgages for the past 5 years and just renewed our mortgage again with them, Laura is pleasure to work with, always getting back to you right away. True North has the best mortgages out of any Bank. Would only deal with True North
Dilip from Ontario June 2016
My mortgage was up for renewal and I was going to lose the fantastic variable rate that I was enjoying for the last 5 years, since Scotiabank was no longer offering the discount on variable or fixed rate. I went to the True North mortgage website researching for better rates. I am usually very skeptical about using an online broker, so hesitantly contacted True North through the chat function on the website. Laura Clarke attended to my questions. Within minutes she gave me a quote for a fantastic 5 year fixed rate, and explained to me that the rate was for mortgage that originally had less than 20% down payment and for clients with good credit ratings. She answered all my questions to my satisfaction and assured me that there were no fine prints or catch. Instead of going back to my bank, I decided to renew with True North mortgage and started the process. I had only two weeks before my mortgage was to be renewed. Laura started off the process by sending me the forms and list of documents and assured me that she will work on it to get the approval and close the mortgage by the maturity date despite a very tight deadline. I would recommend others to start the process at least 3 weeks if not 4 weeks before the maturity date. Laura explained to me the costs that they will take in transferring the mortgage and the cost that would be borne by me. The entire process was transparent. I learnt clearly the difference between Collateral Charge and Standard Charge mortgage that the banks don't explain. Laura worked with the Title company to process the documentation and communicate with Scotiabank to get the statements, and arrange for an agent to visit the house and sign the papers well before the deadline. The Agent understood the urgency (3 days before the maturity date) and sent off the signed papers by Express post and the payout cheque was sent by the next day (a day before the maturity date). It had to work like clockwork precision. And, Laura was on top of it all the time to make it happen! Looking forward to the same exceptional service from True North mortgage team for the next 5 years and hopefully thereafter!
Patrick from Alberta June 2016
Had a really great experience at TNM, Laura got me the best rate on a mortgage that I found anywhere and it was super-fast and painless. Highly recommended!
Carlos from Alberta December 2016
Well what can I say the mortgage landscape and competition in Canada is quite fierce. A lot of brokers in the marketplace make a lot of promises and more importantly you are just treated to make a quota not as a client. Getting a mortgage (or in my case refinancing my existing mortgage) can be a very stressful time. Trying to determine the best rate and terms, or deciding who has the best offer, is a real challenge. I did my homework and due diligence but it was a daunting task until I called True North Mortgage and spoke with Laura Clarke. She was very pleasant and asked the right questions. Due to my hectic work schedule and my busy family home life most of the process was conducted via email, which was a great option for me. Laura Clarke was very professional, transparent, knowledgeable, acted with integrity during the whole process and answered all of my questions in a professional and prompt manner and showed me various options that she felt would be best for me financially. There was no pressure for a specific product or financial institution – she was focused 110% on providing me with the best mortgage solution. Special Thank you to Laura Clarke for making this process very quick, painless and for going above and beyond. I couldn't be happier with the service I received, and will definitely be returning to True North Mortgage after my 5 year term is complete. Many thanks to the True North Mortgage team for hiring Laura.
Mark from Calgary February 2013
Thanks for all of your help and patience. It was way better than having to deal with a bank.
Nikolay from Calgary December 2012
Thanks a lot, Ryan. It is rare, people are at work that late and that fast with replies. It is pleasure to deal with you.
Linda & Giacomo from Fort McMurray August 2012
Hi Ryan, Just got the 'welcome letter' from ING today. We were pleased at the slightly lower mortgage rate! Thanks for all your assistance in processing this mortgage transfer! We really appreciate your thoroughness and patience. Regards,
Trevor from Calgary December 2010
Hi Ryan, I just wanted to thank you for your patience throughout my multiple changes and answering all of my questions. Everything has been taken care of, and it has helped to make the holidays brighter for me and my family. Thank you for everything, and I hope you have a great holiday season.
Nelson from Calgary February 2016
Thanks again Ryan for your hard work in making this deal happen, like the last deal I know it wasn't easy. I don't think we could have bought this place if it wasn't for your help, so thank you very much!
Iryna from Calgary May 2016
I had a great experience with True North Mortgage and I would suggest them for anyone that is looking for a mortgage. I worked with Ryan Walchuk on two of our mortgages and I highly recommend Ryan and True North Mortgage company when thinking about purchasing or refinancing again. Thank you very much, Ryan we were extremely satisfied with you and how quickly you responded to all our concerns.
Marika from Calgary April 2015
True North Mortgage was recommended to me by another client and I was very happy with the service. My mortgage specialist was Jackie Smith, she is fantastic. Her responses were quick, questions were answered thoroughly, and the process was probably one of the most smooth and efficient processes I have ever experienced from the client perspective when transacting in residential real estate matters. Jackie was proactive and communicated everything. She helped to assess my situation and my goals to ensure that I had enough information to make a proper decision with my investment. I sincerely appreciate the honesty and transparency. I will absolutely recommend Jackie to any prospects looking to pursue their mortgage financing options.
Adam from Calgary August 2015
I would like to thank True North Mortgage for helping us. The whole process went very smooth even though our situation was complicated. I had the please of dealing with both Jackie Smith and Courtney Sanh. I would recommend them to anyone.
Adam from Calgary March 2016
I had a great experience with True North Mortgage and I would suggest them for anyone that is looking for a mortgage. Jackie is fantastic to deal with and always has great answers and advice. Dealing with TN realty was also a great experience and Celeste was just fantastic and helped me make my decision so much easier. Thanks!
Mary Jane from Calgary February 2016
We chose True North Mortgage as our brokerage after extensive research on brokerages across Canada. We chose True North due to their excellent reputation for customer service and due to their salaried payment policy (not on commission). We worked with Jackie Smith, who provided excellent support and had all the answers to our many questions. She was able to meet with us after work, and also responded to emails quickly and informatively. The mortgage process can be tricky with the amount of paperwork involved, so we were glad to have her guiding us through the process. In the end we got a great rate with excellent prepayment privileges. Very impressed overall.
Schona from Calgary October 2015
Jackie Smith is a fantastic mortgage broker. She got us an amazing rate and her customer service was incredible. She made it an easy process and I would highly recommend getting your mortgage though Jackie at True North.
Nathan from Calgary March 2016
Jackie was my mortgage broker at True North Mortgage who helped me get a crazy good interest rate on my mortgage and has been a ton of help since I signed the mortgage as well.
James from Milton November 2013
Just wanted to say thank you for your help in setting up our mortgage. It all went very smoothly. I will certainly recommend you to my friends in the future.
Patricia & Evan from Toronto November 2013
We really appreciate the time you have taken to answer all our questions clearly and thoroughly. The service you have provided has been fantastic! Sincerely, Patricia & Evan
Vikas from Mississauga October 2013
Hi Gershon, The experience we have had dealing with you has far exceeded the other lenders we have talked to recently or dealt with in the past. As such we have referred a couple of our friends… Vikas
Alison from Toronto July 2013
Gershon, We can't thank you enough for all your help. You made this so painless for us. And, of course, the rate you got us is unbelievable!! Thanks again, Alison
Douglas from Ottawa August 2012
This is a brief testimonial for Gershon Ashurov, who helped me with my recent mortgage.I found Gershon to be very objective, helpful and professional. He made sure that I was able to obtain the best mortgage for my needs and budget. Moreover, he answered all of my questions completely and promptly. He was very knowledgeable about the field and was able to explain its intricacies in ways that I could fully understand. I feel very fortunate to have had Gershon as my mortgage broker. Yours truly
Courtney from Toronto December 2014
Gershon, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and patience walking me through this process. We get the keys to our new home today! I will be recommending you and True North to all of my contacts!
Hemal from Toronto April 2015
I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Gershon Ashurov for my mortgage needs. Having spoken to several other mortgage agents/brokers while shopping for the best product to suite my needs, I can happily say that dealing with Gershon was one of the most pleasant experiences. Although I have not had the opportunity of meeting him in person, he came across as very honest, confident and knowledgeable person who was willing to educate his clients and help them make an informed decision. He was very thorough in the process and in spite of his busy schedule, found time to call back and answer any questions that I had. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family as well use his services again when the need arises.
Arlene from Toronto April 2016
Just refinanced our mortgage via True North and we were extremely pleased with the services received from the Broker (Gershon Ashurov). We would not hesitate to use True North again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a Broker willing to listen to your needs and work on your behalf to get the best possible mortgage to meet your requirements.
Doug from Toronto June 2016

Neil & Soni October 2014
Chris, We would like to thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled our mortgage as a first time home buyer. You were very professional in your approach and took the time to address all of our concerns & answer all our questions articulately. Not only did you do your job professionally but with "INTEGRITY" which was key to your earning our business. Everything went exactly as you had promised & there were no deviations or surprises. Thank you & keep up the excellent job! We have already referred 2 of our friends to you & will be strongly recommending you to others as well.
Gertrude from Toronto December 2014
As a first time home buyer, Chris Eigbe made the process very easy. He was very knowledgeable and used all forms of communication effectively. Due to his great service and hard work, my family and I are enjoying our beautiful home. Working with Chris at True North Mortgage was awesome!!!!
Martina from Toronto December 2014
Chris, I would like to thank you for all your help in setting up my mortgage renewal. Thanks for taking the time to always ensure understanding by explaining the renewal process clearly and promptly responding to my inquires. Your professionalism and exceptional customer service are refreshing and very much appreciated. I'd be happy to refer others to you for business should the opportunity present.
Stefanie from Toronto January 2015
Chris, I very much appreciate your assistance with my mortgage; you were very patient and helpful. The mortgage experience I had with you was 10 times better than I had before, you gave a nice personal touch and were confident. I can see you are very passionate about your job and know your stuff. Take great care and hopefully we can reconnect in five years when my mortgage is up. The whole True North team was exceptional, good teamwork! Chris, thank you again for everything.
Terry Ann from Toronto January 2015
Chris, the closing went very well. Thank you for all your help. You made the process go smoothly!
Matthew from Toronto August 2015
Chris Eigbe went above and beyond, and demonstrated exemplary customer service to find the right mortgage to fit my needs. He reviewed the various mortgage terms and conditions in a clear and meaningful way to facilitate my mortgage selection. Following my mortgage selection, Chris followed-up to ensure I was satisfied with the process. I was referred to Chris by my sister and I’d highly recommend his mortgage broker services to others.
Lisa from Toronto April 2016
Chris Eigbe is an exceptional Mortgage Specialist. I was referred to him by a friend who had an excellent experience finding a Mortgage and now I can say the very same. From the very beginning, he worked seamlessly with me to help me find a great mortgage that I am very happy with. Communication with Chris was great. He answered my many questions via telephone and e-mail and he provided me with responses and replies in a very timely fashion. Thank you Chris for all of your services. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Lariza from Toronto July 2016
We recently had a bad and stressful experience with a mortgage broker regarding porting our house mortgage to our new condo. The broker assured us that there wouldn't be any problems or penalty come closing time. To make the story short, we ended up paying $11,000+ penalty for early mortgage discharge. With my bad experience, you would think that I shouldn't even be considering the idea of mortgage brokers. But I decided to give it one more try and I'm so glad I did! From the moment you walk into their 145 King St. West store, Chris Eigbe is there to welcome you with open arms. He listened patiently as I told him about what happened to us and that we need a mortgage pre-approval ASAP. He was so professional, courteous and helpful in dealing with our transactions. He even offered to scan 50 pages of documents as I don't have the capability to do it. And this to me shows how Chris went over and above beyond his normal duties. Chris, thank you for treating us with respect like a human being and not just another one of your client. You should really be commended because you're an epitome of excellent customer service! Thank you True North Mortgage for restoring back our trust and faith with mortgage brokers. This remarkable experience really earned you high marks and makes you stand out from the rest. We would surely recommend you to our families and friends.
Priya from Toronto September 2016
Chris, Thank you for all of your assistance with obtaining our mortgage and the great rate we received! Our closing went smoothly and we received our keys on schedule. Best Regards, Priya
Garvin form Toronto October 2016
I just wanted to say it was our pleasure working with you and thank you for the great service and effort you provided in securing our mortgage. The solicitor referral you provided also was great, so thank you for the referral. All in all, great service.
Seema from Toronto December 2014
Elizabeth, thank you so much for your sevices. Everything went well for the mortgage and Im happy. I highly appreciate your professionalism and prompt responses.
Howard from Toronto February 2015
Elizabeth provides excellent service and attention to detail. She helped me to get a mortgage within a very short time window, which speaks to her ability and willingness to help clients. Furthermore, she is always there to answer questions and concerns. She also knows the business very well. I strongly recommend her to everyone!
Serge from Toronto December 2015
Hello Elizabeth, Hope this finds you well. I just want to thank you for your hard work and quick turnover time on this file. You have been very responsive to all our inquiries, and you were always there to provide us advice and guidance to complete this file. You were very professional, knowledgeable, and timely. Additionally, you got us the best rate after I was told by several brokers that we couldn’t get this rate. Will certainly recommend you to colleagues and friend looking to purchase. Again, thanks very much.
Nikesh from Toronto April 2016
This is my first home and have not worked with any other mortgage brokers yet but I must say; there cannot be a better Mortgage broker. Low rates, best communication and excellent service. Thank you very much.
Lydia from Toronto September 2016
I can't thank you enough for your patience and expertise in taking me through the process of decision making with my best interest in mind! I also feel so much better knowing there are specialists out there with the heart to put customer's interest first! I would definitely go to True North for future borrowing needs. Thanks again for your guidance and encouragement. How you have handled my case gives me the confidence to do business with True North in future as well as referring friends to you.
Brad from Toronto September 2016
I just wanted to thank you and True North Mortgage for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming a home owner once again. Both, yourself and TNM will be referred to and spoken very highly both personally and professionally! Thank you very much.
H from Newmarket November 2013
Just wanted to thank TNM and Cristian personally for successful completion of my mortgage renewal. Great job by Cristian. Everything was done promptly with all arrangements made as early as possible, guaranteeing an excellent rate well before closing date. Peace of mind and a smooth process all along. Will talk to Cristian first when renewal time comes around.
Nikhil from Ontario November 2012
My introduction to Cristian was purely because I left my number on a Google search result website when looking for the best mortgages available. I did the search even though I was already with an existing mortgage broker. To my surprise, Cristian called me back and offered me a better rate, with the same lender. However, my reason for writing this email is to say that I am very pleased with the service Cristian has provided me. He was extremely efficient and was able to get the mortgage approved in less than a week. He lacks nothing when it comes to professionalism and his responsiveness to my many questions kept me at ease throught-out the transfer from my existing broker to TNM. Even after closing on the mortgage he went the extra mile to try and help with an adjustment of the payment date. I believe, a resources such as Cristian, is a valuable asset to TNM and will help your organization immensely.
Ranga from Ontario May 2016
Very recently we got a mortgage through True North Mortgage. Our contact was Cristian Garrido (License #M10001441). He was very prompt, courteous and very understanding to our needs. We had given him a very short time since the closing was very near. His assistance was indeed very timely for us and once again thanks to Cristian and we can recommend him to anybody who is looking for a good mortgage agent.
Nalini & Rex from Ontario August 2016
We would like to let you know that We have an amazing experience with Cristian Garrido, he always goes extra mile to satisfy his clients. We always feel confident when we are handing out our file to Cristian, He is the key person and a valuable asset for your team and for your company's growth. I highly recommend Cristian and we will happy to come back in the future for any mortgage issues. We would like to thank again Cristian to get it done our file within the short time period.
Patricia from Ontario June 2015
I really enjoyed working with True North for my first mortgage. My mortgage broker, Victor Tran, made the experience as stress-free as possible. The communication was clear, quick, and very informative. I consistently felt like a priority. As a first-time home-owner, I was new to everything that comes with buying a home and Victor did so much more than just secure my mortgage. Not only did I secure the lowest rate heard of by friends, family, and colleagues, but I also trusted that Victor was looking out for my interests - such as shopping for an equally low rate with less restrictive conditions. He was also helpful in searching for a lawyer, suggesting best practices, and warning me about first-time homeowner pitfalls. I can confidently say that I will be a returning True North Mortgage customer.
Lee from Ontario June 2015
My experience with True North Mortgage was exemplary. They offered me the best rate right off the bat and then bested any offer my previous lender offered. Victor Tran was a consummate professional throughout the process. A steady consistent hand that kept me in the loop and kept everything on track. A pleasure to do doing business with.
Mike from Ontario August 2015
We selected True North Mortgage for our first mortgage based on positive online reviews and the promise of competitive rates, and were not disappointed. We were extremely happy with the service we received from our mortgage agent Victor Tran, all the way from pre-approval to closing. Victor processed our application very efficiently and was always available to respond any questions that came up. We would not hesitate to recommend Victor and True North to anyone in the market for a mortgage – they will get you the best available rates with no haggling and provide great customer service along the way!
Divyesh from Ontario October 2015
My experience with Victor at TNM was very good. He is very helpful, quick in answering queries and resolves any doubts that you may have about the mortgage. I never imagined getting a mortgage would be sooooooo easy . The process itself also was very quick. You get to know all about what you are going to get and you get exactly what you are told.
Tanya from Ontario March 2016
I wanted to send a note about Victor Tran. I don't think I will be able to properly express in words what an amazing employee you have. From the moment I picked up the phone his professionalism and amazing personality made me not look elsewhere for a better rate. Crazy I know, but I had to call back immediately and book with him. Victor never pushed but instead gave me all the facts and I believed him. Victor also has tremendous and quick follow up like I have never experienced before and I truly felt he cared. I'm emailing you because I felt the need to tell you how happy I am that I called and he picked up the phone. Purchasing a home is never easy and to have someone so on the ball and caring was amazing. You have something really special.
Brian from Ontario January 2016
I obtained a mortgage with True North in 2015 - my broker's name was Victor Tran. He is indeed a bar raiser for his industry, always following up on matters related to my account and resolving any problem before they arise. He helps educate his clients by explaining in detail what is required and the most effective course of action. Victor is patient and very professional. I highly recommend contacting Victor to obtain a mortgage if you want experienced, professional and the best mortgage rates around town.
Judy from Ontario September 2015
Victor Tran was our mortgage broker from True North and he offered superb customer service. He was very responsive to all my requests and questions throughout the whole process and provided responses and solutions promptly. He even educated me on the difference between collateral charge and standard charge mortgage which I did not know would make a big difference at mortgage renewal. We were able to get the lowest rate with minimal conditions. Thank you Victor! I would not hesitate to recommend True North to other people.
Claude from Ontario April 2016
Oddly enough, I came across Victor Tran and True North Mortgage on the internet. They were offering mortgages at a very competitive rate. I called and spoke to Victor who proved to be a competent, intelligent, prompt, well-spoken man who kept things simple and provided exactly what was advertised. No hidden fees. Just plain good service.
Katerina from Ontario May 2016
I had an amazing experience with True North Mortgage and Victor Tran in particular, he was extremely prompt with even the tightest closing date times and was always there to answer any and all of my questions as a first time home buyer.
Bayan from Ontario May 2016
Words cannot express how exemplary the service of Victor Tran is. Victor is incredibly knowledgable, patient, transparent and most importantly, honest. As a first time home buyer, I was clueless as to how the process works. Victor provided me with very clear, concise information, to educate me on the important topics. His primary motivation was my well-being and the response times were incredibly fast. Victor was also willing to communicate with me primarily through email as a convenience to my work schedule. I have already recommended Victor to my family and friends for all future mortgages. Please keep up the fantastic work!
Alvin from Ontario May 2016
Victor was absolutely amazing and helpful when it came down to refinancing our home. It was our first time going through the process and our situation was unique. He was patient and was able to address our concerns promptly. He made us feel reassured and clarified the entire process. Vincent was very genuine and unlike most services he provided exceptional service even after committing to a lender. He made sure we were taken care right up to the date of refinancing He was able to give us the best rate on the street but I was more impressed on his service. The least I can do is leave him a positive review. Please book your future appointment with Victor!
Lainey from Ontario June 2016
Victor Tran was amazing. As a first time buyer he was very patient and thorough in explaining everything in detail. Things got hectic and very last minute and he did everything in his power to ensure everything closed off smoothly. He was very prompt in responding to emails and he always responded - no wondering if he got my emails or not. I have a very hectic life so I probably only spoke to him once or twice on the phone and everything else was via email. He always gave me attention and was very knowledgeable and honest. I am extremely happy and recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage.
Stephen from Ontario August 2016
Victor Tran at True North was super helpful with our mortgage. He answered a number of questions for me very early on in the process and based on our conversations I came back to him once we had settled on a place. While the rates True North can get are obviously key when comparing with a mortgage from a bank, Victor's customer service was definitely a cut above and key to our decision to get a mortgage through True North.
Lysianne from Ontario July 2016
We could have not been more pleased by the level of customer service and unbeatable rate we got on our mortgage. We are expats and first time buyers in Canada and had no idea about how things work here, very different from France. Victor provided us with all the information needed to move forward with our purchase and guided us every step of the way with our application which wasn’t an easy one! He was very knowledgeable, responsive, constantly on top of things and provided us with top notch customer service. I would highly recommend True North Mortgage and Victor Tran to anyone looking for the best mortgage rate and customer service excellence.
Fox from Ontario June 2016
I used to get loans from the big banks. This is the first time I got a mortgage through a broker. The experience with True North Mortgage was really amazing. Victor Tran made the whole process stress free. He not only helped me find the lowest mortgage rate, but also provided very professional services - email responses were always prompt; very patient to answer my questions and more.
Simon from Ontario August 2016
We were referred by one of our friends who had a great experience with TNM. And how lucky were we! TNM provided us the most competitive rate out in the market during our search for the mortgage on our next new home. The customer service quality is just superb comparing to other major financial institutions. Victor Tran, the agent who gave us the best experience during this search by not only explaining things clearly and precisely, guiding us through the process but also responding promptly, proactively and professionally. Victor made it easy for us to make one of the biggest financial decisions in our lives. He took our best interest to his heart and we are really fortunate. We definitely will refer TNM and Victor to the people we know who will need great rate and services for their mortgage.
Ramandeep from Ontario October 2016
My search for a competitive mortgage rate ended when I came across Victor Tran of True North Mortgage on the internet. Victor is not only knowledgeable in his profession but extremely patient with his client. I’ve had numerous phone calls and email communication with Victor and he has been very prompt in answering all my questions. Victor helped me in every step in the process and I would strongly recommend his services to anyone in the market looking to borrow.
Linda from Ontario September 2016
I purchased my home last year, and I only have positive things to say when it comes to Victor Tran and True North. I felt (and still feel) completely taken care of with regards to anything and everything mortgage related -every step of the way from getting my questions answered, to having information presented to me, to finally deciding to sign with True North. Victor is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and a dream to work with. Thank you for all your help!
Adrienne from Ontario November 2016
Victor Tran provided the most professional, courteous and awesome experience in helping me transfer my mortgage recently. I always felt that I had a great resource in him from the smallest question to the insight needed in explaining the process to me every step of the way. I've already made a few referrals his way and I wouldn't give it a second thought to recommend him again. Thank you so much for your knowledge and help in getting me a fantastic rate and helping me to save a great deal of money over the life of the term. Thanks Victor and True North Mortgage!
Ling from Ontario December 2016
I just moved in my new home and would like to say thank you to Victor Tran who helped me obtain the mortgage. Victor guided me through the whole process and answered all my questions responsively and with great detail. He stayed on top of all misc. documents. I’m very impressed by Victor’s customer service skills and broad knowledge in the industry.
Dong from Toronto January 2015
Hi Dashna, it was a pleasure working with you. You were wonderful to deal with and the service you provided exceeded all my expectations. Thank you and hope to work with you again.
Rosie and Andrew from Toronto March 2015
Dashna, you have been fantastic. We really appreciate all your work and efforts in getting this done in a timely fashion. Take care!
Ricardo from Toronto March 2015
Hello Dashna, This is to convey my utmost appreciation for the guidance and assistance you gave me to obtain the mortgage. I decided to try True North Mortgage after getting inadequate customer service from a couple of other mortgage brokers. The issue mainly was communication; they are slow in returning calls if they did. Speaking with you the first time gave me the impression that you are the right person to deal with as you explained clearly the rates, steps, requirements and the timeline in getting a mortgage. Best of all, it was easy to get a hold of you, calls and emails were returned and responded to in a timely manner, and issues and solutions to these issues were explained very clearly. You made the whole process downright easy. I have and will certainly recommend you to families and friends requiring your services. Again, thank you very much.
Ben and Nisha from Toronto July 2015
Hi Dashna, We would like to thank you for all your help in the matter of obtaining a mortgage for our new property. I know there was a lot of work on your part and we truly appreciate your understanding and patience with us to help us through getting everything finalized. You were very professional, courteous and kept us in the loop during the whole phase of the application and approval process. Even under tight time restrictions you were able to assist us in getting the mortgage we needed and all paper work sorted out in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend you (and we already have) to our family and friends for future mortgage needs. We received our keys yesterday evening and stepped into our new home, it was a great feeling for both of us!
Barry from Toronto July 2015
Just a note to say how comfortable it was to work with True North in refinancing my mortgage. We had some glitches with the underwriting department with the bank, but the people with whom I worked with, Stacie Lemon and Dashna Joya,were both cordial and efficient in bringing the process to a successful conclusion. Dashna was especially helpful, and I am most grateful to her. Real people working for corporation do matter.
Dilia from Toronto
There are simply are no superlatives sufficient to thank you for your fantastic service! You went out of your way to help me until closing date and because of your intervention, I was able to inform the lawyer about what was missing. Now everything is going through fine and in the right direction. Thank you absolutely for everything you have done. The communication, professionalism and efficiency throughout the whole process was above and beyond, I am forever humble and grateful for your service. I will be recommending you to everyone!!! Thanks again.
Mohammad from Toronto October 2016
Thanks to Dashna Joya who offered me the best possible rate for the 5 years variable available in market. Her service was excellent through out the process and always responded to my questions in a timely manner. I strongly recommend Dashna to anyone who is looking for a mortgage.
Scott/Ellen from Ottawa October 2016
Our recent mortgage renewal was greatly facilitated by the hard work, dedication and professional work ethic of Dashna. Dashna was easy to communicate with and kept us updated on our file on a regular basis. She was always true to her word and honoured the commitments of the firm. When we renew our mortgage in the future we will certainly utilize Dashna.
Paul from Ontario December 2016
My experience was amazing, just like when I got my first mortgage through True North 2 years ago. Besides getting an amazing rate (which is most important to me), you made the whole process so easy for me and fast. I actually don't understand why everyone doesn't use a mortgage broker (probably because they don't know about it as an option unless someone tells them... that was the case for me for my first mortgage). I will always look to True North first when renewing my mortgage and continue to recommend True North to anyone I know when they tell me they need a mortgage.
Rafael from Ontario February 2016
Thank you very much for all your help, Dashna. As a first time home buyer the whole process can be quite a bit daunting and intimidating (not to mention all the unknowns that I started knowing along the way...), but your help made it much easier. I'm very happy with the way you handled everything, we're glad that we got your referral!
Jennifer from Ottawa September 2013
... I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I were very happy to have worked with Yuval Fish for arranging a re-financing of our mortgage. He was prompt and efficient in his replies, very helpful and knowledgeable and followed up at every stage. We are very pleased that we decided to work with TNM instead of with the bank we had been with for more than 10 years.
Haris from Toronto August 2012
Just wanted to let you know that Yuval helped me secure my mortgage earlier this year and he did a splendid job. It was the first time I was buying a property and Yuval answered all my questions with professionalism and great patience.
Steven from Toronto August 2012
We found you to be pleasant and very easy to talk to. You usually always had the answers to the questions we were asking and if you didn’t, you promptly got back with a response. We ended up with not just a great rate but a mortgage package that is very flexible and one that will work for our circumstances going forward. Thanks again for all your help.
Rachel from Mississauga August 2012
Yuval was very knowledgeable and prompt in responding to all email and phone enquiries and is a very likeable person. To date I am satisfied with the mortgage that I was able to obtain through True North and I don’t believe I could have gotten a better rate or terms from another company. I find it surprising that the lender I had been with for eight years could not even come close and would not match the rate. I find it interesting that they chose to lose my business instead. My father-in-law who used to be a bank manager still can’t believe the rate and the terms that I got which were much lower than the banks advertised ones. It is easy for a consumer to say they got great customer service when all goes well and a transaction is seamless but the true test of whether an individual and/or company has provided great customer service is how they respond when something goes wrong or when there is an issue that needs to be resolved. In my case there was a misunderstanding regarding fees and this is where Yuval and True North both stand out as exceptional. I was initially quite put off with Yuval’s intial response of “Hey Rachel, I did find out from ICICI and they actually don’t reimburse the discharge fee or the registration costs.” however at the end of the day he redeemed himself by being proactive and talking to his manager and arranging for a full refund of the $250 discharge fee. I was truly amazed at the expediency in which the cheque arrived! If the fee had not been covered I would have been left feeling that the company/agent was flippant in this regard and probably didn’t care as he/they had already got my business. On the other hand because of the way the issue was resolved I believe that this is a company that is actually concerned about reputation and customer service, and not just paying lip service. The fact that you are soliciting feedback is also another good sign. Thank you for actually putting your money where your mouth is. I have since told quite a few people about your company and because of the way my issue was handled I plan to use your company again when my mortgage is up for renewal.
Warren from Ottawa August 2012
Yuval was GREAT! He drove me a bit crazy with his paper work requirements but that was the lender not him. Patient, technically sound, answered my questions and got me through the long process. It was long and difficult but I am very satisfied with my 10 year mortgage that Yuval convinced me was in my best interests. Top marks for him, true professional.
Kajam from Ontario January 2015
I got my mortgage thru Yuval Fish at TNM and it was a great experience, Yuval was amazing he gave me great advice and a competitive rate and when it was time to sign the rate went down and he got me a better deal. He is very knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone.
Jennifer from Ontario January 2015
Yuval was efficient and prompt to respond to my queries. He didn't hesitate to help me even with follow up questions or concerns. Highly recommended.
Marlon from Ontario April 2015
Yuval was a great help to us, he was available to answer all our questions, explaining things simply. He also was quick to return our calls and follow up with us. He worked hard to find us the best mortgage for our circumstances and time frame. He is AA++++ in our books. Thanks again Yuval!
Samuel from Ontario June 2015
Yuval was friendly, professional and absolutely fantastic. He resolved all of our concerns quickly and efficiently and was generally on top of everything. We couldn't have asked for better care and service.
Michael from Ontario June 2015
Paul made me very comfortable with my mortgage. He was constantly fighting to get me a better rate. He was very easy to work with and very trustworthy. Very professional and he follows through and keeps you up to date with what is happening. Highly recommended.
Seokjin from Ontario June 2015
Paul Siu made me convinced that TNM was reliable and helped me a lot when I was skeptical about TNM. He was kind, friendly, professional and prompt to respond my queries with good explanation always. He was amazing and I highly recommend him.
James from Ontario June 2015
Paul Siu is a great guy, he helped me to apply the best rate mortgage. He answered all questions quickly and solved problems carefully. Reliable person and reliable company.
Cheryl from Ontario June 2015
Paul was very helpful and was awesome at securing our mortgage. Great company to deal with.
Nelson from Ontario June 2015
I had spoken to several different mortgage brokers before finding Paul Siu, who immediately struck me as highly knowledgeable as well as concerned about our needs. We ultimately ended up with a very satisfactory product, thanks to Paul’s competent guidance. I would recommend him and True North Mortgage in a minute.
Andrew from Toronto June 2015
Paul was able to tailor a product to meet my very difficult situation. He was wonderful to work with and was always available to go the extra mile to ensure that everything was done properly. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough!
Catherine from Toronto September 2016
Paul Siu is amazing and incredibly helpful. I really couldn't have asked for a better Mortgage Agent especially since i'm a first time home buyer. I had so many questions and Paul was always patient with me and answered all my questions very thoroughly. In addition, he kept me calm that everything would be fine and it did. True North is lucky to have an employee like Paul.
Yu from Toronto September 2016
I was a client with Paul Siu and it was an excellent experience. The agent took care of the whole process and no hassle at all for me. All communication is done through phone and emails so that I did not even have to make time for an appointment, which is really convenient. On top of that, unbeatable rate. Especially against the big banks. Highly recommended for renewing your mortgage.
Mikalai from Toronto September 2016
I was a client with Paul Siu and it was an excellent experience. The agent took care of the whole process and no hassle at all for me. All communication is done through phone and emails so that I did not even have to make time for an appointment, which is really convenient. On top of that, unbeatable rate. Especially against the big banks. Highly recommending Paul as your mortgage broker.
Gerry from Toronto September 2016
My first and primary contact at True North was Paul Sui. He was very knowledgeable and provided fantastic advice, while listening to me and answering all my questions. I was leery of going with a big "impersonal" broker in another city, but True North was able to get me the great rate that a large broker can get while providing the friendly personal service I would have expected from a smaller company. Thanks Paul, thanks True North.
Gordon from Toronto September 2016
My experience with True North Mortgage was absolutely pleasant from start to finish. If you're looking for a great customer service experience and great rates, this is the place to go! I was assisted by Paul Siu. Not only did he walk me through every step of the process, he also put in the extra hours to make sure everything was to my liking. Paul was always accessible and really took the stress out of a potentially daunting task. When you talk about thorough and knowledgeable staff, Paul comes to mind. In the end, I can rest easy knowing I got the best rate and the best customer service available. I will definitely be recommending Paul and True North Mortgage's services to my friends and family!
Faroq from Montreal November 2012
I went to a couple of banks and was unsuccessful in obtaining a mortgage. Thankfully I met Steven at True North Mortgage, not only was he able to quickly get me approved, but he got me an amazing mortgage rate along with it!
George and Irene August 2012
Working with Steven Levine was a real pleasure. He was efficient and personable whenever we had to deal with him, always returning phone calls and following up promptly.We strongly recommend Steven and will surely deal with him when it is time to renew our mortgage.
Alexander & Lisa from Montreal August 2012
Thanks so much for helping us to obtain a mortgage and assisting us through the ups and downs of the process. We really appreciate it. Thanks again!
Vickie from Montreal August 2012
Steven, Working with you on my mortgage was an entirely pleasurable experience. You were clear, helpful, informative and efficient! Thank you!
John from Montrea August 2012
Not only did Steven get me the best interest rate possible on the market, but the personal service was great. When the bank's loans officer needed some additional information, Steven was immediately available on the phone to resolve the problem on the spot. Highly recommend.
Chris from Halifax February 2014
I can't thank you enough, you've been great this entire process. If I ever have any friends looking for a mortgage I will definitely send them your way.
Dan & Laura from Dartmouth December 2013
And a particularly personal thanks for all the help and advice you've given us through this process. It's been so great to work with you!
Lynda from Halifax June 2013
Thank you so much for your excellent service! We really appreciate it.
Donavan from Nova Scotia December 2012
As I'm sure you're aware in this day and age, customer service is almost extinct in most places. When I find someone who is as helpful, knowledgeable and communicates in a comfortable non-pressuring manner as you have, I am more than happy to point people in the right direction
Nick from Sydney September 2012
Thanks for everything Kelly. We are very happy with our new mortgage agreement.
Jim from Halifax August 2014
Kelly, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help in the mortgage process. It was daunting, and confusing at times, but you were certainly a bright spot. You went far and away beyond your job description to help us in so many ways. In short, you were great.
Carrie from Nova Scotia September 2014
Zack, I really want to thank you for this entire experience. You are professional, patient, and really went the distance to get me the best deal I've seen. I will definitely do business with True North again - and certainly, pass this note along to your management team - you guys are doing a fabulous job!
James from Nova Scotia August 2016
Thanks Zack. Clara and I really appreciate the great service and always helpful attitude that you have provided us with. You are a fine representative of True North Mortgage company and we will be happy to recommend you to any of our friends or family planning a move down east.
Dan from Nova Scotia September 2016

Thank you for all your help, Chris and Jamie. We consider ourselves to be fortunate to have had you both to guide us through the process and make it seem simple. Wish you both the very best.
Steve from Vancouver October 2014
I just wanted to say thanks for all your help. Great experience working with you and True North. Really appreciate it!
Michael from Vancouver October 2014
Thanks very much Jamie, appreciate all your help. You'll definitely get some referrals from me.
Jeff from Vancouver January 2015
Jaime was very helpful, comprehensive and diligent when he handled my mortgage. We bought a new house and sold our old one but the dates did not line up. We needed bridge financing between the two completion dates and our big blue bank was not able to handle the transition without a considerable amount of heavy lifting. Jaime and True North Mortgage came through for us with flying colors. Everything was completed remotely without me ever having to set up appointments or step away from my desk. They also gave us the best rate. So the big question is, why doesn't everyone get their mortgage from TNM?
Elena from Yellowknife June 2015
Hi Jamie, both my lawyer and the banker said the rate you got was the lowest they had ever seen, so thank you for that! I appreciate all your hard work for us!
Graham from Vancouver June 2015
Hi Jamie, We’ve decided that we will go with True North Mortgage. Honestly, I appreciate your tenacity and drive to make this happen. Thanks!
Glen from Alberta June 2015
Hi Jamie I really appreciate your help with this. As usual, you did great and highly professional job for us!
Lori of North Vancouver July 2015
Hi Jamie, Just wanted to say that everything went smoothly. Thank you for all your help. It was a pleasure dealing with you!
Joan of British Columbia July 2015
Hi Jamie Thanks for handling this deal. You delivered! It closed without a hitch. Looking forward to a future deal with you and True North Mortgage.
Zach & Sonja M from British Columbia October 2015
Thanks Jamie! Sonja and I appreciate everything you've done for us and thanks for getting us a great rate. I will be sure to send you some referrals down the road.
Brad from BC
I just wanted to thank you and True North Mortgage for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming a home owner once again. Both, yourself and TNM will be referred to and spoken very highly both personally and professionally!
Lydia from BC
I can't thank you enough for your patience and expertise in taking me through the process of decision making with my best interest in mind! I also feel so much better knowing there are specialists out there with the heart to put customer's interest first! I would definitely go to True North for future borrowing needs.
Jene from BC
Hi Evelyn, Thanks for your kind advice and I will definitely recommend true north to my friends about quality of service and accuracy of information.
Ian from Vancouver May 2014
Chris ... The house is great and everything has gone smoothly with the mortgage. Can't thank you enough for stepping us through this process! You guys are really a rock star team. Thanks again and if any of my friends need a broker I'll definitely be sending them your way.
Justin from Vancouver March 2014
Thanks Chris!!! I'm really happy with how things have gone - thanks so much for your help! Cant wait to move in!
Sandeep from Surrey March 2014
Dude, you are the man. Thank-you so much for the help. Very happy with you guys and will recommend you to all. Thanks for everything.
Brian from Vancouver March 2014
Luckily I found Chris at True North Mortgage. When I did, I was facing the possibility of losing my dream house and my down payment . I had unfortunately dealt with an incompetent mortgage broker prior to finding out about True North. My previous broker told me I would not be able to get a mortgage due to an existing oil tank located on the property, and I would have to get private financing at a high rate of interest or I could just walk away losing my down payment. Not only did Chris get me a mortgage he got me a better rate. He worked quickly and kept me in the loop of what was happening. He is straight forward, honest, and responds quickly to all my inquires. I cannot say enough good things about him and would recommend him to anyone I know. He is a true professional. If you want good service and good rates, go see Chris. Sincerely, Brian
Allan from Kelowna October 2013
A little hard to get a hold of someone initially, but once I did Chris Rempel took care of everything and was extremely prompt with all communication. He is really knowledgeable and clearly explained some of the finer points of mortgage contracts to me without wasting my time with the basics I was already familiar with. I had a really tight turn around time for a renewal and even though my existing bank threw us a couple curve balls I was never worried due to Chris' professionalism. In the end things were finalized with time to spare. Almost forgot to mention I got the best rate in the province, but I think that's almost a given with these guys.
Sharleen from Vancouver July 2014
First National and you have been awesome and very patient through all this. Please know that I am so thankful and happy with all you have done and your expertise and professionalism.
Sujoy from Surrey August 2014
Thank you for all your help, Chris and Jamie. We consider ourselves to be fortunate to have had you both to guide us through the process and make it seem simple. Wish you both the very best.
Edwin from Vancouver October 2014
Thank you so much for your help in getting me this mortgage from start to finish. You are very professional and I will certainly use your services again in the future.
Jayden from Vancouver October 2014
After waiting a very long period of time, my wife and I finally decided to purchase our first home for our family. This was a lengthy decision that left us with a feeling of uncertainty as to the timing and our affordability. Chris Rempel from True North Mortgage was one of the first people we spoke with regarding our new venture and we were sincerely impressed from the first conversation. Chris gave us confidence that the financing would work out well and lived up to his word as everything ran smoothly from the pre-approval to the closing. There was not even a hint of pressure at any time and I sincerely trusted that he and True North were acting in our best interest at all times. Chris and the True North team provided valuable peace of mind throughout the process and we have been extremely happy with our purchase and the terms of our mortgage. I have repeatedly recommended True North to anyone looking into purchasing or re-financing a home given True North's commitment to service and providing the best mortgage rates and terms. I have spent my career in the service industry and learned a lot from True North's business model and genuine care for their clients. Many thanks to Chris and the True North group. We trust the future will be bright for True North!!
Lorraine & Mike from Vancouver October 2014
Just like that.... Done. Wow. Ur are the best. I will pass your name to everyone who will listen! Thank you so much for your help
Alex and Flora from Vancouver February 2015
Dear Chris, please accept our sincere thanks for your great service. You have made this progress so smooth and simple. Your prompt response is amazing, application sent in a couple of hours with a feedback, this really gives us confidence that the broker is really doing the work. We will definitely refer other friends to you.
Gerald from British Columbia August 2015
Just a quick note to say thanks to Chris for helping us with the financing of our new home. I have dealt with a regular bank for many many years but Chris was able to convince me of the benefits of dealing with True North. He was great to deal with and got things finalized in very short order. I highly recommend Chris and True North.
Prab from Vancouver April 2016
My experience with Chris Rempel and my realtor JD Horlings was exceptional from the very first meeting. I am a first time home buyer and wasn't familiar with the process at all. I asked a million questions and they were both very patient and answered all of my questions. They not only ensure that you feel supported during the entire process but also follow up with you after the purchase of your home to ensure that everything is going well. My sister recommended TN Realty as they helped her purchase her first home as well. I have absolutely no regrets! JD made the home buying process fun and less stressful. He listened to what I wanted and found the perfect condo. He walked me through every step of the process and he will definitely be my realtor for the rest of my real estate ventures. Thank you Chris and JD! - A Very Happy New Home Owner
Antonio from Vancouver April 2016
So, we get the mortgage papers all done yesterday. Mission accomplished. Thank you very much for your extremely professional work and such very pleasant customer service, was really a nice experience and of course I will use and refer your services in the future.
Laura from Vancouver May 2016
I highly recommend True North Mortgage and will pass our broker's details onto all of our friends. Chris Rempel was exceptional. As first time home buyers, Chris helped us out in every aspect and went the extra mile to secure our mortgage at a great rate. As we live in a small town in BC, all contact was through the phone and e-mail. Chris always replied right away and kept us in the loop. Thanks for all of the help! A very happy customer.
B.J. from Vancouver May 2016
Chris Rempel was beyond fantastic. We decided to deal with him from a distance because he was so good. He went above and beyond to provide us with great options and in the end an enviable mortgage rate. Chris always made time for my questions and he was kind and patient and trustworthy. I would recommend using Chris to anyone.
Chris from Vancouver November 2016
This is the 3rd time I’ve used True North Mortgage. There’s many reasons I keep coming back. Chris Rempel and his team do an OUTSTANDING job everytime. The 1-on-1 service, their ability to consistently find the lowest rates available, and friendly professionalism are a winning combination for me and my wife. TRULY THE BEST! I’d give them a million stars if I could. 5 isn’t enough!
Rene from Cranbrook December 2016
We would like to thank Chris at True North for making the mortgage part of our real estate transaction such a breeze. Chris is a real pro and very easy to work with. He takes what can be a complicated process and make it seem so easy. Chris explained everything in detail and always responded to every question promptly. If you need help with a mortgage, we highly recommend Chris. We should know. This is the third time we have used his services and every time it's been a positive experience.
Souvik from Vancouver December 2016
True north mortgage was very prompt and professional in their approach. On-boarding process was seamless. Highly recommend True north, keep up the good work. My mortgage renewal was facilitated by Chris Rempel, job well done.
Martin from British Columbia January 2017
True North Mortgage has done an excellent job securing our last two mortgages. Chris Rempel and his team went above and beyond securing us the best rate which was much lower than the banks we bank with. Chris also went through the very fine details of what would happen if we cancelled mid term and calculated all the possible penalties we would encounter. We definitely recommend Chris at True North if you want a transparent, seamless and pain free mortgage without jumping through hoops.
Natalie from BC
Broker Ken Xie made it really easy for me to understand the process. He was quick in response and helped in any way he can. He was really patient with me - I kept bugging him about everything and went to him whenever something came up. I really enjoyed working with him! Thanks so much for your help Ken!
Jeff from BC
Amazing brokerage! I am quite experienced in real estate and the service and quality of product was amazing. I was changing mortgages between companies and one of the brokers, Ken Xie, went well above and beyond what was necessary to not only get the deal done but at a lower rate than expected. Use this brokerage. They will save you money!
Dagen from Vancouver August 2014
True North Mortgage was truly amazing. We were happy to find Laurie Mapes went above and beyond to make sure we had the right mortgage. Her professionalism was outstanding and she knew exactly what we needed every step of the way.. Could have not asked for a better person to have working for True North Mortgage. We were pleased to see that True North Mortgage was not like most big banks that had a problem with income from a home base business. I would definitely recommend True North Mortgage.. Thank you so much for getting us into our new home.
Graham from Vancouver August 2014
Laurie was fantastic and worked extremely hard for us surpassing what a regular employee would do! Laurie really cares about her clients! Thank you!
Ernie and Dory from Vancouver October 2014
Laurie Mapes is a True scholar, and climbed many mountains to achieve our mortgage plan for us. It can also be said that this lady did not give up and aspired to achieve our goal to acquire this property we really wanted. She really cared like she is part of our family. Thank You Very Much from the Bottom of our Hearts!!!!!! She is excellent and professional in what she is doing. We highly recommended her to anyone who's looking for mortgage broker. We are looking forward to working with her in the future. We really appreciate your help Laurie.
Jin from Vancouver October 2014
As a professional realtor, I have referred many clients to various banks and mortgage brokers. When it came time to shop for a mortgage for myself, I quickly realized that the process is a lot more complicated and involved than what I normally see. Laurie Mapes has taken a very complicated process and made it into an almost stress-free experience. Laurie was professional, and always there to answer questions. At one point, we ran into a road-block but she was able to find a solution and successfully arranged a mortgage for me. Laurie is a pleasure to work with, and I will definitely be presenting her and True North Mortgage as a choice for my clients in their next purchase.
Anthony from Vancouver October 2014
Now I'm not the most professional guy to be working with when it comes to a large amounts of money, nor do I like working with people that are too uptight and professional. I guess you can say I'm a bit judgemental with who I work with, but Laurie Mapes was just a pleasure to work with. I was completely clueless when inquiring about getting a mortgage, but she was patient with me every step of the way. She kept me on my toes when I didn't understand something, and made sure I got my paperwork in on time. She was on the ball, even when I wasn't! I gave Laurie a call months after I filed my paperwork and when it was time to close on my property. She remembered exactly who I was, and helped me clarify something with my notary. Impressive really. I was lucky to walk in and have Laurie as my broker. Laurie is cool, personable and knows how to get things done. Also, she laughs at my jokes, so double plus there! Looking for a mortgage? see Laurie Mapes!
Andrew from Vancouver October 2014
True North Mortgage has great service and the lowest rates around. I worked with Laurie Mapes. She is knowledgeable and efficiently managed the underwriting process which reduced the stress of buying our home. I would highly recommend Laurie and True North.
Catherine from Vancouver November 2014
I had an awesome experience working with Laurie Mapes at True North Mortgage. She has been very professional and always follows up on my inquiries and requests. Laurie was able to offer me an excellent rate. This is my first home that I own and I am very happy with Laurie's services. I am definitely going to refer my friends to Laurie!
Gabriel from Vancouver December 2014
Laurie is a pleasure to work with. Always available and very informative. She responded to my many emails in a very timely fashion and was always open to phone calls to better explain the process. It was painless and easy.
Ronni from Vancouver December 2014
Laurie Mapes of True North Mortgage competently and tirelessly achieved securing us a successful mortgage approval for our challenging and complicated financial scenario with utmost professionalism -- including being a master of detail by listening avidly and engaging in due diligence. Wholeheartedly dedicated, Laurie Mapes provided impressive customer service and truly cares for your ultimate satisfaction and peace-of-mind like no one else in the biz (or any business for that matter!). Ever so consistent and thorough, Laurie Mapes demonstrated a phenomenal degree of prudence and acumen doubled up with true excellence, steadfast commitment, and remarkable knowledge. This might sound like a billboard ad; however, holding in highest esteem the bottom line is this: Need a mortgage broker? You need Laurie Mapes at True North Mortgage!
Marnie from Vancouver January 2015
Laurie Mapes is as efficient as she is caring and kind. When my former mortgage company did not get back to me regarding my renewal, I went on line and found True North Mortgage. I thought initially that I was just completing a survey to see how much of a mortgage that I qualified for late one night. Laurie was on the phone with me first thing the next morning never giving up until the mortgage was in place. Being a recent widow, I was not sure of what to do next and was overwhelmed with paper work but Laurie was patient and diligent until everything was in place, with the best rates possible. I would highly recommend True North Mortgage to anyone and everyone needing a mortgage. I now have peace of mind. Thanks to Laurie's wonderful work ethics and endless patience.
Brandon from Vancouver February 2015
Without Laurie Mapes I would not be the proud owner of a great investment property today. She helped me navigate a complex financing arrangement with an incredibly short subject removal date and closing date and numerous other challenges. She was extremely proactive in updating me on progress every step of the way, and was very patient and professional with me when I was bordering on panic (buying a property is stressful). Needless to say, I experienced a high level of customer service, and am extremely pleased to have chosen Laurie to help me with my purchase. I would highly recommend her!
Alyssa from Vancouver March 2015
Laurie and the team at True North are amazing. They helped us in purchasing a beautiful condo that we love. Laurie made the process quite easy and was always there to answer our many questions and accommodate our requests. We got a great rate and would definitely use True North again!
Victoria from British Columbia July 2015
Our mortgage refinancing was facilitated by Laurie Mapes, we found her to be so efficient, knowledgeable, positive, patient, and friendly. We never had to wait for a response to calls or e-mails, she alleviated all of our concerns, and made the process easy. We are thrilled with the outcome and would recommend Laurie, and True North Mortgage with confidence.Thanks Laurie!
April from Vancouver January 2016
Our experience with TN Realty and True North Mortgage has been incredible. When we first filled out a pre-approval form on the True North Mortgage website—as young, first-time buyers in Vancouver—we didn't have high hopes. But, only minutes after pressing the 'submit' button we had a representative on the phone giving us details on our pre-approval. They also informed us about the TN Realty program and connected us with JD Horlings. From there everything was fast, smooth and unbelievably stress-free. We got our approval on the Wednesday and on that same Friday JD was able to get us a viewing of the condo we wanted. By the following Wednesday it was ours! JD was friendly, professional, supportive and available every step of the way. He set us up with a fantastic lawyer, walked us through all the documents and offers, and made everything understandable. And in the background Laurie worked wonders getting us a great rate on our mortgage and a fast approval. The entire experience from start to finish was so easy on our end as home buyers. We would recommend JD, Laurie, TN Realty and True North Mortgage to everyone!
Carlos from Vancouver January 2016
Upset with my bank I reached out to True North Mortgage for a better rate and service. Laurie Mapes was exceptional in delivering on both. She was quick to reply to my inquiries and always very responsive to my concerns. Not only was she professional but was able to add the right amount of humour to ease the stress of my first mortgage renewal. Thank you Laurie for a genuine experience worth raving about.
Nikhil from Vancouver February 2016
When I started to look for a Mortgage, I actually didn't start my search for a mortgage with them. I went to a "full service" broker in the same building who described True North as a "discount" broker and used all sorts of pressure tactics. Finally I had enough and walked over to True North to see what they have to say. Laurie at True North was helpful, straightforward from the get-go. It took less than 30 mins to get started and she was always there to answer my questions. They got me the best possible rate and everything went smoothly. My advice, shop around but don't fall for "full service" BS. Laurie provided as good service as anyone can and saved me a ton of money!
Aeron from Vancouver March 2016
Our mortgage broker Laurie Mapes was professional, courteous and efficient. A pleasure to do business with! Thanks Laurie!
Joseph from Vancouver May 2016
Had the pleasure of working with Laurie Mapes at True North Mortgage. My deal was a refinance where I wanted to pull a little equity. Laurie worked tirelessly to find the best lender and interest rate for my situation. Even when the first lender let us down Laurie persevered and was able to secure a better deal through a more well known institution. Laurie's follow through with timeline commitments, availability and overall professionalism are unprecedented within my experience in the lending world. I have no doubt she will continue to help many prospective clients and that I myself will be a repeat client in five years. Thanks for everything Laurie
Jennifer from Vancouver May 2016
Just recently, I purchased my first home. Laurie made the process of getting a mortgage approval much easier for me and ensured that I understood the process. I feel as though she is a huge addition to your team as her level of professionalism and how she handles client needs exceeded my expectations. She worked very diligently in getting the mortgage for me. She went the extra mile by alleviating my stress during this major time of change in my life. I will be sure to refer friends and colleagues to your firm in the future.
Mike from Vancouver September 2016
Being a realtor, I have many options in choosing mortgage brokers. After careful review I selected Laurie Mapes from True North Mortgage. Her expertise really came through with her efficient emails and call backs. For anyone looking for a Mortgage, I would highly recommend Laurie and will recommend her to all my future clients.
Surge from Vancouver September 2016
Just a note to tell you that I was very impressed with the service I got from Laurie Mapes from True North Mortgage, I looked her up on the internet, we needed to get a refinance done. She was so quick and efficient. She got us a very good deal with excellent rates, within a couple of days. What most impressed me with her was her quickness in responding to any and all questions I had. Even though I am sure she gets the same questions every day. She was very knowledgeable and thorough. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends and colleagues. Thanks Laurie, you made getting a mortgage painless and stress free.
Tim from BC October 2016
We worked with Jacky from Truth North Mortgage. He was extremely helpful and was always willing to help and answer our questions. We first dealt with Jacky through email communication. His response time was very prompt. We later met with Jacky at the Metrotown location. He was very nice and walked us through the process. We were very happy with the rate we received and would recommend Jacky from True North Mortgage to our friends and family.
Labros from BC October 2016
Jacky was awesome securing my mortgage. He provided all scenarios to prep you for the good and the bad, and in the long run was able to provide the service that I needed with a great rate on a mortgage. Easy to talk to and followed up on every call and email, even on his days off. A big Thank You to Jacky and his team.
Ru from BC September 2016
Jackie Cheong and Chris Rempel were both extremely helpful in getting me set up with the best mortgage rate possible -- very professional and prompt in responding to my questions, and providing updates regarding the status of my application.

We worked with Jacky C. to discuss mortgage options and he was very knowledgeable and most importantly very prompt as we needed to view our options in a tight deadline. He is helpful and up front about any questions you present to him, he will cater to your needs to help you make the choice that fits you.
Luciano from BC February 2017
Jacky was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to end. He helped find me a great rate for my rental property, and beat the best rate out there that his competitor was offering. His professionalism and prompt replies to emails is second to none. Hope to work with Jackie again in the future as going through the paperwork process is seamless, and his direction to getting things dome on time seemed smooth, without stress.

Jacky was exceptional in his service during our mortgage application. He was very personable, and extremely prompt in responding to calls or emails. Fantastic experience and I would highly recommend!
