Hi there, and welcome to The Mortgage Studio!
I’m Michele Ellis, an Accredited Mortgage Professional (AMP) in Squamish, B.C. with 27 years of experience in the financial services industry. That means for the past two decades, I’ve been working for Canadians by figuring out their unique financial situation, negotiating on their behalf with my 70+ professional lenders, and – ultimately – finding the mortgage that best fits their personal goals and long-term priorities. That’s my job description as an independent mortgage broker, and it’s a job I remain just as passionate about my business today as I was 27 years ago.
I know that buying a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make – and one of the most complicated. Many people turn to their bank for mortgage advice because it seems like the simplest solution. But that simplicity comes at a cost, because the banks are only interested in selling their own mortgage plans – whether or not those plans are appropriate for your situation. Calling me is just as easy (if not easier!), and I’m not dedicated to one particular lender. That means that I can give you professional, unbiased advice you know you can trust. I work for you, not for the bank.
The cherry on top? Since I’m paid directly by lenders, the majority of my clients pay absolutely nothing to have me find them their perfect mortgage.
So whether you’re purchasing a home, transferring your mortgage, refinancing to consolidate debt, or simply want to review your financial situation and options, simply get in touch to take advantage of my experience and expertise.
