Hanna specializes in lender/bank relations. She is in charge of evaluating our clients financial situation and finds the perfect match with our lenders. Ensuring that we can provide our clients with the best possible product and rate suitable to their financial lenders. 

We are mortgage professionals working with clients on the lower mainland. We are proud to work for the #1 Franchise Canadian Mortgage Experts with the #1 brokerage Dominion Lending Centres in Canada as this allows us access to the best mortgage products for our clients. We work closely with our clients assisting them with the home buying process and make sure that not only they get the best rate, but more importantly the right mortgage that suits their financial needs and long-term goals. 
From our experience in this industry, we’ve seen home buyer’s try to jump straight into the decision-making process without all the tools and information they need. At the end of the day, buying a home is a big deal to you, and it’s a big deal to us. Having the right information is the key, we certainly don’t want any self-inflicting wounds to occur during the process!

To gain every possible advantage, we work to lay out a roadmap for your home purchase. We will assist you before, during, and after each transaction to develop a long-term relationship, so you always have someone there for you. We’ll examine the right mortgage options and products that are appropriate for your current financial situation.  

Most people will only buy a handful of  homes in their lifetime…mortgage financing is something we do every day, so you can rest assured that working with us is the first step you should make when buying a home!   

Christian is an amazing Mortgage Broker! He did an amazing job when we needed his services. He went above and beyond as he also gave us a great advice in terms of savings and how to manage our finances properly. And Aziel being a part of the team makes it a perfect combo!

They will for sure do a great job and Me and my husband definitely recommend them! Giving them 10 thumbs up!

I was absolutely impressed with Christian’s professionalism. When I called him, he was able to schedule me in for the next day. Within 2 weeks we were able to close a deal on a house in the month of December! His commitment to help us was remarkable. We had a couple bumps on the road but he was able to give us options. It was very helpful how thorough he was with explaining everything.

He gave us the confidence to believe we are capable of having a mortgage that was within our financial means. He showed us we didn’t need to rent anymore! I’m so happy and impressed! I recommend him to everyone I know!

Thank you for always being available to help us even while you were out of town and responding promptly each time we reached out to you!

Home Purchase

Whether you are looking to buy your first home or your hundredth, I will make sure you feel comfortable throughout the entire process and get the mortgage product that best suits your individual needs. I work with all types of home buyers from first timers to investors with multiple properties. If you are looking to live in it, I can help you finance it! (Within reason of course).


Are you looking to refinance your property to access some of the equity you have built up over the years? Maybe you want to consolidate some debts, start a new business, renovate your home, buy a vacation or investment property… regardless of the reason, I will discuss all of your mortgage refinancing options with you and help you find the mortgage that suits your needs! 



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 or if they have called you on the phone, the first thing you should do is contact me for advice. Never just sign the bank’s offer, there is ALWAYS room to negotiate. I’m here to help you, so that you don’t have to do the negotiations alone!
