Over a decade of feedback.

You were available night and day for clarification, resolution, organization and peace of mind. [why would you recommend Jim in the future? He was] knowledgeable, patient, accessible and was driven to want to make the experience a very pleasant one!
Dave & Erin Gionet, Barrie
“informed and comfortable”
The quick and detailed responses via email and the willingness to meet at my convenience were very much appreciated. Also, the lack of implied stress and complications that I had been dealing with from other companies was what really set this service apart. I would give a 10 (out of 10) for the services and information provided. It was made quick and painless, yet informed and comfortable. Of course, I would and will continue to recommend Jim Cook to others looking for mortgage advice.
Jelisa St. Peter, Saugeen Shores

“only good things to say”
I have only good things to say about working with Jim. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions and I always got a prompt answer from Jim. The experience was definitely a full 10 (out of 10). And yes, I would recommend him to others too.

“he really cares about his clients”
I would give Jim a 10 for quality. I appreciated his willingness to explain everything in detail and his patience.

For those reasons, I have already recommended Jim to other people.

“made the decision making much easier and clearer”
I would recommend Jim Cook without hesitation to anyone looking to renew or get a first mortgage. I loved the fact that Jim answers his phone and leaves the computer to do other work!! His ability to break down options available to me into terms that affect my life made the decision making much easier and clearer.

“a 10 out of 10”
I would rate my experience as a 10 out of 10. Even though there were more paperwork demands, Jim was good at explaining why and helping me get the right information. Overall, I am quite happy with the support … Unlike the banks, I was not made to feel like I was doing the lenders a favour.
Nathan Smith, St. Edmunds Township
“found this experience truly refreshing”
I was really happy with the entire experience. Jim knows the industry, got us a great deal and made the whole process unbelievably easy for us. I have had mortgages with a number of banks and found this experience truly refreshing. Thanks!
Brian and Kim Luinstra, Kincardine
“Jim was absolutely super”
Jim was absolutely super, patient and completely professional. Even though I have a banking background, I am no financial wiz and he walked me through all paperwork and answered my questions. I have no regrets and appreciate my real estate agent suggesting that I consider talking to him. I am so thrilled that my mortgage is NOT with a traditional financial institution, especially after working for one in the past.
Jacquie Fraser, Point Clark
“he went above and beyond”
I don’t think that there was anything that could have went better. And based on this experience, I’m strongly recommending Jim to anyone that I know who is also looking to purchase a house. I think he went above and beyond in order to help get us the best deal and make everything easy for us.
Jeff & Jennifer Stevenson, Port Elgin
“we can’t thank you enough”
Tony, thank you so much for everything! You have been amazing to work with and we can’t thank you enough. We will definitely recommend you down the road. Thank you for the [Brick] certificate! We may want to buy a new washer and dryer with it! We are so excited to move. Thank you again.
Bonnie MacPherson & Justin Miller, Burlington

Jim Cook helped me when I had been with #### Bank for over 30 years and they turned me down. I will use Jim again and recommend him to anyone I know in need of a mortgage.

“rate our experience a ten (out of ten)”
I would rate our experience a ten (out of ten) with Jim. I don’t feel there was any area that he could have improved on. He was amazing as … this was not a straight forward [request and] Jim did everything in his power to make things go smooth.
Susan Ritchie, Port Elgin
I had a great experience with Jim Cook at Mortgage Intelligence. As a first time homebuyer, I really didn’t know where to begin in the process of getting a mortgage. I heard great things about Jim so I decided to make an appointment. He was extremely helpful in explaining the process and even sent me home with ‘homework’ so I would be ready once I found a home. Jim was alwasy prompt with returning my emails and I feel like he really did go out of his way to guide me along. I truly appreciate his help and will definitely refer others to him.
Jody Slesser, Kincardine
Your services were very professional and prompt, an attribute I specifically value. I had considered myself well-researched for my mortgage and was pleasantly surprised when Jim gave us options of which I was not aware. Thanks again.
Alex Rauket & Jenn MacKay, Kincardine, December 2010
“we felt extremely well informed”
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, we would rate our experience as a 10! With being first time home buyers and being unfamiliar with the house buying process, we felt extremely well informed and organized with Jim Cook. He explained all steps in great detail and was always readily available to answer questions by both phone and/or email. It was also appreciated that he was flexible with meeting times, being available outside of normal business hours.
Laura Minns & Chris Misch, Port Elgin, October 2010
“heartily recommend your services”
The service we received from Jim was certainly nothing less than a 10. He kept us informed throughout the process and took care of all the little details that arose. It made what could have been a very tedious and potentially frustrating exercise for us into a pain-free, pleasant experience. I would heartily recommend your services to anyone seeking a mortgage.
Wade & Janice Gibson, (PWU), Kincardine, October 2010
“our experience was excellent”
Our experience with Mortgage Intelligence was excellent once again. It was great to use Jim’s experience and expertise to analyze our options on different types of mortgages. I would definitely rate the quality of service a 10.
Jared & Megan Adams, (PWU). Kincardine, September 2010
“we were very pleased”
We were very pleased with our experience with Mortgage Intelligence and would give it a 10 out of 10. We appreciated being able to meet with Jim after our workday and not feeling rushed at any time during our meetings. We were always able to get all our questions answered and felt good about our decisions.
Lija & Bryan Bradley, Kincardine, September 2010
“can not say enough”
[We] can not say enough about Jim. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME … scale of 1-10, I give you guys a 100. Thanks for all the help, patience and hard work.
Kate & Richard Serre, (PWU), Point Clark, July 2010
“could not have gone any smoother”
The service was way more than a ten. My experience with buying a house could not have gone any smoother.
Jeff Colman, Kincardine, June 2010
“it constantly amazes me how he is able to keep getting better”
My experiences with Jim have always been a 10. We’ve been in the mortgage situation three times now and as excellent as our first mortgage went with Jim, it constantly amazes me how he is able to keep getting better at what he does. Rest assured, that if in the future the situation arises again, we’ll be in touch.
Joe & Lana Hunter, (PWU), Kincardine, May 2010
“if exceeding expectations is the priority, then you’ve succeeded”
On the 1 to 10 scale, you’ve got the ten. I would recommend Jim to anyone thinking of purchasing a home. Believe me its the first time I ever had a good experience getting a mortgage. Jim knows his product and was able to set me up with an institution that met my needs. I appreciated his honest knowledgeable approach. If exceeding expectations is the priority then I have to say you’ve succeeded.
Andy & Penny Gulley, Boilermaker/PSW, Port Elgin, May 2010
“we truly were given a first class, professional service”
I would rate this whole experience with Jim and Mortgage Intelligence as a solid 10 out of 10!!
I do not rate this number solely for the purpose of giving a good rating. We truly were given a first class, professional service. I called the company based on an Internet ad as we were looking at a mortgage for a new home we bought in Hanover Ontario. Jim answered the phone. Within 30 mins of talking and answering some questions we were well on our way to solidifying a deal.
After only a couple email messages back and forth and a phone call or two, Jim was able to put together a fabulous package for us. It was really a pleasure to deal with a Professional. There was not one “snag” so to speak, everything was put together and prepared for our signatures with no stress and anxiety on our part. We have and will continue to refer your office of Mortgage Intelligence!
Peter & Kathy McEwen, Police Inspector/Nurse, Guelph, March 2010
“he was there with us at every step”
We were very impressed with the services provided by Mortgage Intelligence, Kincardine. We were especially impressed with the knowledge and experience Jim brought to our team. He was there with us at every step and always made sure we were informed with the latest updates. Even after the sold sign went up he was fighting to get us the best rate possible. We recommend Jim and Mortgage Intelligence to anyone and everyone, a definite 10 out of 10!
Eric Dunn & Karen Day, Bruce Power, Port Elgin, March 2010
Thank you for all of the help & good advice you gave us [Tony] & I will definitely endeavour to send business your way in the future.
Mike Vella, Pilot, Ancaster, February 2010
“professional, friendly, tenacious and insightful”
Our experience with Jim Cook of Mortgage Intelligence has been excellent. He has been professional, friendly, tenacious and insightful at every step of the process. We could not have made this purchase without his help. On a scale of 1-10 the service has been an 11.
Aaron Klassen & Elizabeth Conerly, AMEC, Kincardine, January 2010
“Our Sincerest Thanks”
Chris and I would like to give our sincerest thanks to you for all your efforts with regards to our mortgage renewal … If we can ever refer anyone to you in that area we certainly would as you created a very trusting relationship with us. Thank you again.
Chris Simoes & Anne Haslett, Oakville, January 2010
“the service was excellent”
The service was excellent. Jim was informative and called to inform how things were progressing. [It was] the first time I understood the mortgage information as it was explained well and Jim reduced the stress. I have recommended your services to many others and will continue to do so.
Patti Boron, Nurse, Kincardine, December 2009
“Jim was very professional and patient with me and my family”
I would definitely rate Jim at least a 10, the service was more than I expected. When I had questions (and I had a lot) there was always a quick response. Jim was very professional and patient with me and my family. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Carrie Twolan, Kincardine, October 2009
“the service was second to none”
The service we received was second to none. We probably would not be in our new house if it were not for Jim answering the call. Even though it was very late in the evening! Nothing but GREAT things to say about our whole experience!
Peter & Suzanne Gibson, Kincardine, September 2009
“Jim was a tremendous help to us”
We would definitely rate your service a 10. Jim was able to accommodate our work schedules and was very knowledgeable and informative. Even the footwork he did between our real estate and lawyers offices was a tremendous help to us.
Mike & Heather Grondin, Superheat/Nurse, Kincardine, September 2009
“I was truly impressed…”
I was truly impressed when I called Jim the first time just to inquire about his services and before the end of that day had a pre-approval in my hand at a rate lower then I thought possible. Throughout the whole process Jim always took the time to answer the wide array of questions we had as first time homebuyers…so I think that deserves a 10 rating in my book.
Mike & April Sutton, Bruce Power, Hanover, August 2009
“On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the quality of service as 11.”
On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the quality of service as 11. Jim was incredibly helpful from the moment we walked in the door, to after we’d moved in. During our initial meeting with Jim, he assessed our knowledge of the home purchasing process incredibly well. He was very thorough in explaining what was going to happen and when this would occur. If he thought he was overloading us, he would stop and check to make sure we understood everything. He explained all of our options and in my opinion offered solid advice at every point where a decision was to be made. Jim gave us a package of information about mortgages that was incredibly helpful as a reference guide. One of the key things that Jim did for us was to stay in contact on a regular basis and update us in terms of rates, progress, etc. I never once felt like we’d been forgotten about or pushed to the side. In short, if we include all the people that were involved in the process of our purchasing a home, Jim was easily the most informative, helpful, prepared of the bunch. If we ever plan on purchasing another property, the first call I make before talking to anyone else about it will be to Jim Cook.
Bill Morrison, Painter, Kincardine, Jul 2009
“Dog with a bone attitude”
Thank you so much for all your hard work on this one I know it would never have happened if we went the bank route or for that matter through another broker – you went the extra mile it seemed on a daily basis and I knew from experience that your “dog with a bone attitude ” would result in a successful conclusion.
John & Jane Sangster, Realtor, Kincardine, July 2009
“It was a pleasure working with Jim”
It was a pleasure working with Jim – he was wonderful with us, very patient and helpful – he took the time to make sure we understood what we were getting into. He was always quick to answer our questions and we feel that he went out of his way for us. We recommend him to all our friends and family 🙂
Katherine Mullin & Greg Thede, Veternarian/AECL, Port Elgin, June 2009
“10 out of 10 without a doubt!!!!!! He made it happen!!!”
We can’t say a bad thing about our experience with Jim Cook. He is an amazing person and we do nothing but recommend him. We even have his business cards in our house we are trying to sell right now for those going through it. He is extremely thorough and we never had to wait for any information we were inquiring about. 10 out of 10 without a doubt!!!!!!! Thank you Jim for everything. He made it happen!!!
Michelle & Adam Kraemer, Kinfarm, Kincardine, June 2009
“Your level of expertise and professionalism was of the highest quality”
We would rate our mortgage experience at a 10!!!!! Personally, we felt very comfortable with you from the very beginning. Your level of expertise and professionalism was of the highest quality. We are very happy with the way things turned out and are looking forward to working with you EVERY time we have to redo our mortage (is that refinance?). Honestly Jim, we will recommend you to all of our friends and family seven days a week and twice on Sunday.
