I’m a mortgage broker working with clients in BC and Alberta from my office in Burnaby BC.
If you are looking to purchase a property, understanding all the mortgage options available to you can seem overwhelming. The market is hot and having a clear plan is a must. That’s where I come in, I do this everyday, and I love it. I will help you make sense of all the numbers and provide you with options. You want to be able to shop with confidence so when you put in an offer, you have done as much as you can before hand to increase the chances of everything working out!
The best time to start looking at renewing your existing mortgage is 120 days before your maturity date. If your existing lender has sent you a renewal offer in the mail, the first thing you should do is send it to me so I can give you a second opinion. Never just sign the offer, there is always room to negotiate. I am here to help you, so that you don’t have to do those negotiations alone!
Are you looking to refinance your property to access some of the equity built up in your property? Maybe you want to consolidate some debts, start a new business, buy a vacation or investment property… regardless of the reason, I will discuss all your mortgage refinancing options with you and help you to secure the best mortgage available.
If you would like to get pre-approved, refinance your existing mortgage or your renewal is coming up…

Here are some of the nice things my clients have said about me!
Scott is extremely well versed in his area of expertise.He is also very organized and pays a great deal of attention to all of his clients. In fact, his clients have spoken very highly of him to me. The communication and caring that he shares with all of his clients has provided a positive experience when dealing with him.Brenda B.
I have and will continue to refer my clients to Scott and know they will be professionally looked after. Scott understands the stresses families undergo during the buying process and uses his experience to help guide his clients (and mine) from the beginning to key hand-off to after move in ….K Hunter
Thank you very much for everything. It was a true pleasure dealing with you. Not only did you get us the best rate but you were extremely helpful & patient throughout the whole process. You were very quick to answer our many questions. I would certainly contact you in the future & recommend you to my friends and family.Valarie & Rob
Scott is one of THE BEST mortgage brokers I have ever worked with! He’s so completely thorough and professional but what really sets him apart are his communication skills and thoughtful updates to help keeping the deals moving smoothly.
Scott embraces and has mastered the new media world and consistently provides both Buyers and Realtors with all the latest important information! I would HIGHLY recommend Scott because its about so much more than just rates! .Teri Conrad
Working with Scott was great, he made the process of finding a good mortgage option and rate really easy. We used to deal directly with my bank and always got the feeling that we probably weren’t getting the best deal but at the same time found it very time consuming to do all the shopping around.
Working with Scott, we always got the feel that he was working for us and not somebody else, it really made putting our mortgage together a lot easier and stress free. We’ll definitely be using Scott for all future real estate transactions.Sean R.
