Jim was remarkable. The whole mortgage application process was a lot less stressful than it could have been because of the effort and care Jim put into helping us through it. We highly recommend Jim's services to anyone looking to get a mortgage.

Jim Mercer

I had a great experience working with Jim. He has a very clear and consistent approach to mortgage applications and is very engaged with his clients. I’ll definitely recommend him.

Jim makes the process of buying a home, or remortgaging completely painless. He is so knowledgeable and patient. He’s quick to respond and keeps you in the loop with each step of the process, No surprises. He manages our expectations well with informed and Realistic explanations. Provides a detailed idea of what all your options are - gives pros and cons to the options. Renewing our mortgages, selling our home in Port Elgin, buying a home in Southampton, and now taking advantage of the current mortgage rates, Jim has been a gem through it all. For myself who is very inexperienced with these processes, he breaks everything down for you. I always feel as though I’m making an informed decision that I’m comfortable with. Much Like talking it out with a friend, instead of cold confusing meeting, or zoom call where you have to google the language that was used.

Jim works for you and with you as the client. He will support you and push back for you when needed. I didn’t even know what a broker did before I met Jim but I wouldn’t ever try this process without him. I recommend him to ANYONE who is buying a home, remortgaging, renewing. But Especially those first time

Home buyers. Feeling confident with these big decisions is as easy as calling Jim!

Rachel Bennett

Thank you for all of the help, Jim!

There is no question-if you need a mortgage, you won't find a more professional, responsive broker than Jim. He explains the whole process, keeps you up to date, and can work magic, too. Unconditionally recommended.

Keith Foulds

Jim made buying our first home a stress free process. He always answered our questions in a timely manner and helped us understand the process. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for a mortgage.
