Client Testimonials

What my clients are saying....

"Laurie-Anne was a god send for us, as we had no knowledge of the mortgage process. She patiently walked us through the steps, obtained excellent offers from several banks, and then efficiently got us through the paperwork. Beyond the mortgage, Laurie -Anne also has a wealth of contacts for those other services needed when taking on a property. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a broker."
Paul Macoun, Assistant Director Operations, VENUS Coastal Network

"Laurie Anne Faulkner is a consummate professional. As first time homebuyers, we needed a lot of direction and her extensive background and experience, as a mortgage broker was evident from her thorough knowledge of the entire process involved. From the start, we felt like we were in safe hands. She could write a book about mortgage broker customer service. She gives generously of her time and her knowledge. She is responsive, cordial, efficient, pays attention to detail, and follows through on everything she says. Laurie Anne made every effort to ensure that our best interests were looked after and made sure that there were no details that had been over looked. She has a wonderful engaging style and manner and was very accommodating. This made the whole process easy, informative, and most importantly it was enjoyable. She went far beyond her duties as a mortgage broker to become a trusted advisor throughout the purchase of our home. The service she has rendered is sincere and unsurpassed. We would not consider using anybody else for a mortgage. We highly recommend Laurie Anne as an agent to anyone looking to purchase a home. - FIRST TIME BUYERS"

Both occasions were stressful but Laurie Anne made the process simple and easy.

She is thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable, and an absolute pleasure to deal with. - REPEAT CLIENTS"

"Laurie Anne recently helped me set up my mortgage following my separation. While she worked doggedly to get me the best rate for my mortgage at a local Canadian lending institution, more importantly, she also drew up a comprehensive picture of my new future financial picture. In short: we didn’t just talk numbers, she took many other variables into account: my lifestyle choices, the needs of my children, my future endevours, doing renovations, doing my masters, etc. - LIFE CHANGES"
