The difference is knowledge. The additional education and experience required to be a mortgage broker sets me apart from a mortgage agent or bank teller. I hold a masters degree in business (MBA) and have over 19 years of experience working with clients and money. My approach to the mortgage process is education based. Whether you're buying a home or refinancing and existing one, it's critical that you have the necessary information to make an informed financial decision. Listen-I start every interaction with a client by listening to their needs and goals Educate-I provide information and explain different mortgage scenarios Advice-I offer honest unbiased advice even if that means it...
As a soldier deployed to Afghanistan I was looking to buy a home for my return. While overseas I had dealt with several brokers, they either stopped responding to my correspondence or simply weren't giving me what I needed. The whole process of buying a home from abroad seemed impossible. I was then referred to Amanda Farris and immediately her professionalism and expertise were evident. She made the whole process so easy and seamless even from half way around the world. In fact I hardly believe it would be any easier to do the same with any other broker in person. She even got me a better interest rate just days before I signed everything with my lawyer. I would recommend Amanda Farris to anyone, either domestically or internationally, looking to buy a home in Canada. Thank you Amanda!

I just want to say Thank You for helping us in the last month. You've been diligent, hardworking for us and even found an awesome interest rate for our mortgage! You really made the process seamless for us - I'm glad we got in touch with you.
