What do you love most about your job as a broker with Capital Mortgages?
For me, the best part of the job is saying the word ‘APPROVED’, making people happy and letting them enjoy their homes.
Tell us the most inspirational story from your work as a broker?
Recovering poor credit is always the best story. Having a client come in, helping them understand their credit score, having them fix it and then moving forward with a purchase.
Tell us the funniest or most embarrassing moment from your work as a broker?
Once a client texted me a photograph from their cell phone, of their computer screen showing their online banking balance… for a down payment!
What is your #1 piece of advice for first-time home buyers?
Be careful. There is a lot to be said for taking the time to understand the entire process and checking to make sure it’s correct. What you see on the Internet is not always true. When you search for mortgages online you get exposed to everyone’s marketing and you have to dig through the layers of that to understand the new rules of lending.
What is your favourite thing to do in Ottawa?
Finding the latest, greatest new (or old!) dinner spot with my wife. It doesn’t always have to be the most expensive but it does need to be creative and tasty. From BBQ, tacos or soup, to steak or sushi, I’m game for it all!
