Jacky is the Mortgage Specialist who helped my wife and I with our first home purchase. We were very happy with his professionalism, the time he took to helpfully answer our many questions and speed with which he communicated. We found it useful to go into the store to talk with Jacky on a few occasions and he was easy to schedule time with for that. He’s very personable, listens well and always gives a balanced view without pushing his recommendations too strongly. We were also very happy with the realtor Marion who Jacky connected us with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jacky and working with him again in future.
- Daniel from BC, January 2018
My husband and I worked with Jacky throughout our mortgage process. Jacky was knowledgeable and responsive (even when he was supposed to be on vacation!) and his follow-through was fantastic. It was certainly above and beyond the service I was receiving with another bank prior to going in to True North. The rate was also good compared to what my current bank was offering. Looking forward to completing the process on our place and working with him in the future.
- Ashley from BC, January 2018
I recently transferred and renewed my mortgage through True North Mortgage at Metrotown with Jacky Cheong.

Jacky is a great Mortgage Professional and I would do business again in the future.

The rate that I received for my mortgage was also better than at other places. Thanks to Jacky and True North, my financing was accepted.

I will highly recommend Jacky and True North Mortgage!
- Bhaskar from BC, August 2017
Jacky Cheong was our mortgage broker. Very professional, hard-working, sometimes too much he answers his emails off hours even on his off days. This worked to our benefit because we were beating a tight deadline of 2 weeks of completion. He's been with us through the ups and downs and obstacles of our transaction. He kept up-to-date, there was almost no time to breathe. He can attest to this. We would probably not have gotten the house if it were not for his dedication and perseverance.
- James from BC, August 2017
Very good service, good rates. Mortgage Agent Jacky helped me nicely throughout the process, being a first time home buyer made it really easy and simple for me.
- Abhinandan from BC, August 2017
True North provided straight, honest and professional service.
- Whylie from BC, August 2017
I contacted True North after dealing with my with Credit Union("CU") for about 2 weeks trying to get pre approval for a new mortgage. The pre approval process with the CU seemed to be taking forever and there was a new requirement from the CU every second day. I was getting extremely nervous and frustrated as I had already sold my place and needed a pre approval right away to put an offer on a house that we really liked. I was worried that based on the CU delay, I would lose the house that we wanted. Frustrated, I submitted an online request for True North Mortgage to contact me so that I could at least get a second opinion. I was sceptical in the beginning as the CU had made the pre approval extremely difficult and I expected the same from True North Mortgage. I was very much mistaken in this regard. Mr. Jacky Cheong called me back right away and guided through the process. Somehow he made the process seamless and pre approved a reasonable figure as soon as he had all documents in his hands. It was right there, right then. There is no next day or next week business with True North, they deal with your request with lightening speed! I am sure that True North has other clients, however I was always made to feel that I was their one and only client and everyone in their office was paying 100% attention to me. To top it off, True North Mortgage was able to provide me an APR that was far better than what I would have received at the CU. Upon acceptance of my Buy offer, my mortgage was approved the next business day by the bank as they had everything they needed from Mr. Cheong. While speaking to the bank during the approval process, the bank agent advised that although he deals with several mortgage brokers but Mr. Cheong is the very best in the Industry. If you are in the market for a new mortgage, do not make the same mistake I did and waste your time with the bank or CU. Let Mr. Cheong do all the work for you and enjoy the best rate in the market. Buying a new home is the largest purchase we, as consumers, make and it can be very challenging. I am grateful that True North Mortgage and Mr. Cheong were my partners in this process and guided me at each step. Thank you Mr. Cheong and the True North Mortgage team!
- Moe from BC, July 2017
Jacky went above and beyond with helping us with our mortgage. Being first time home buyers we were unfamiliar with the process, but he helped us through every step and fixed our problems when they came up. Thanks again Jacky for everything!

- Rayan from BC, July 2017
I am a single mother, adult son with Autism who requires full care, work part-time and I needed to re-apply for my mortgage to hold full title. I called 2 lenders daily until I found someone to think outside the box. That lender was Tru North Mortgage. I had 100% confidence that if they couldn't find a lender they could break it down to what I needed to make it happen in the future. It was with great blessings it did happen and I now hold title to a house my Autistic son and his workers can call his home. Tru North Mortgage went above and beyond to stay connected and keep me informed. Jacky Cheong held my hand the entire way for which I am incredibly grateful. A true professional and caring lender. They don't take just the easy mortgages, they take the ones no other lender can figure out.
- Donna from BC, June 2017
I would like to once again thank you for all that you have done for Matthew and I in helping us find a New Mortgage. Your service was the very best that I have ever received. Right from the start you were friendly and professional and so quick in getting us a New Mortgage. I am so happy that I saw the True North Mortgage advertisement on my computer. I decided to take a better look and read the customer comments and everything people were stating about the True North Mortgage Brokers was all true. It only took a few days to have everything go thru. We are very happy we have gone with your service Jacky. Thank you Jacky Cheong for all your help. I look forward to seeing you again when it comes time for my next Mortgage renewal.
- Sheila from BC, June 2017
We have had a great experience renewing our mortgage with True North. They have convenient hours and location ( we went on a Sunday afternoon) and great customer service. Jacky, our mortgage specialist, clarified all our questions, provided us with all the information we requested and followed up with us once we have made the decision to go with True North. Also, he walked us through the process of notifying our previous lender, and made all the arrangements, so we could sign our papers for our renewal, before we left for a planned trip.
- Norberto from BC, June 2017
Got mortgage for my first and 2nd home. These guys know their work, got approval with-in 24 hours. Broker Peggy Wong and Jacky Cheong were professional, friendly and very informative. I will definitely recommend True North Mortgage. Keep up the good work!
- Sam from BC, June 2017
I went to couple of brokers initially who were just delaying the mortgage process. Then after we put in the offer and had 7 days to remove subject, the broker backed out and said 2-3 banks have denied as Property Taxes are high and we cant afford it and was trying to sell me 1 year mortgage for much higher rates. When 2 days were left for subject removal, I went to True north mortgage and Jacky said I don’t see a reason why banks said no. In a total of maximum 5 hours he sent the offer letter yo me. Jacky is a superb guy and is really passionate. I highly recommend them.

Our experience with True North Mortgage was amazing! Among the options, we got a product that suits our needs, and the rate was unbeatable. Thank you to Chris Rempel! We were very fortunate to have found him. After receiving a disappointing renewal offer letter from our existing lender, we started thinking about switching and encountered a True North Mortgage popup window showing great rates. We visited the Metrotown office, and lucky for us to meet Chris, a True professional with friendly manners. He is reliable, trustworthy, and was very patient with us. Looking forward to working with you again Chris! We are really happy working with True North Mortgage!
- Seigo from BC, May 2017
I am a small business owner for over a year. Where other brokers have not been able to commit a mortgage, TNM did an excellent job securing the mortgage for our first house. I am pleased to inform that Chris Rempel at the Metrotown location put in a great effort to make a strong application by asking for the right details for the banks to consider. For us it was a journey of many weeks but eventually True North Mortgage made it a success!

True North Mortgage has done an excellent job securing our last two mortgages.

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.
- Mike 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.

- Scott from BC, September 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 :-)
- Joseph 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 will be sure to refer friends and colleagues to your firm in the future.

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.

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.

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

Our mortgage broker Laurie Mapes was professional, courteous and efficient. A pleasure to do business with! Thanks Laurie!
- Aeron from Vancouver, March 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!

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!

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.
- Carlos from Vancouver, January 2016
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.
- Gerald from British Columbia, August 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!
- Victoria from British Columbia, July 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!
- Alyssa from Vancouver, March 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!
- Brandon 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.
- Alex and Flora from Vancouver, February 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.
- Marnie from Vancouver, January 2015
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.
- Gabriel 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!
- Ronni from Vancouver, December 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!
- Catherine from Vancouver, November 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.
- Ernie and Dory 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.
- Jin 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!
- Anthony 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.
- Andrew 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.
- Edwin 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!!
- Jayden from Vancouver, October 2014

- Lorraine & Mike from Vancouver, October 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.
- Dagen from Vancouver, August 2014

- Sandeep from Surrey, 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
- Brian from Vancouver, March 2014
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.
- Allan from Kelowna, October 2013
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!
- Natalie 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!
