Welcome to my website!

Many of my clients were not sure if they needed to use my services as a Mortgage Professional, but once they experienced how this helped them with their Home Buying/Re-Financing project they are happy they did. Mortgages are deceptively simple and endlessly complicated. You can only choose when you have choice and have been fully informed. There are many great Bank Specialists providing great service to their clients, but they can only offer their Banks solutions. As an independent Professional I work for you by informing you on all things mortgage, including who will be your Best Lender. My services are FREE (with OAC) to my clients. The lenders compensate my business to provide them a qualified Client. I look forward to assisting YOU.

Many of us make New Years resolutions every January. But statistics show that nearly 80 per cent of people who make them will have broken them by February. If you feel like this is you, dont fret. Most of us can agree, especially with recent holiday indulgences, that improving personal fitness and nutrition is an intimidating idea. But the secret to getting motivated and keeping the momentum going into the spring is to follow these three simple guidelines: Dont try too much at once. When we first set fitness and wellness resolutions, were often inclined to make a goal to spend every day at the gym and eat clean 100 per cent of the time. There is a reason these are too often broken they are hard to accomplish. Listen to your body and do what feels good for you. Modify your lifestyle to a healthy one that fits your needs and is one youll be able to sustain throughout the year. Stick to it. Experts say that it only takes 21 days to create a lasting habit.
