Customer care is the cornerstone of my business.
Hi, I’m Luisa, thanks for visiting my website. Here’s a little about me and why you should choose me to help you arrange mortgage financing. I am an Accredited Mortgage Professional with a reputation for excellence. My experience in real estate law and mortgages dates back to 1989 where I was employed by a real estate law firm for over 10 years. I believe this has given me invaluable insight into real estate transactions, which works to my clients’ advantage today.
In 2005 I co-founded Exclusive Mortgage Professionals, a team of experts with over 30 years of lending experience. Looking to expand my business, together with 7 other prominent Canadian mortgage brokers in late 2013 we formed Xeva Mortgage. Our goal is to become the largest, most competitive, most recognizable National Mortgage company in Canada.
I’m currently a partner, VP of Underwriting, and board member at Xeva Mortgage where our management team has over 175 years of combined mortgage experience. This means we have access to every product offered by Canadian lenders (at the most favourable terms for our clients).
So, whether you are purchasing your first home, renovating, or investing in a property, I will go the extra mile to obtain the best possible rates and customize a financial solution that meets your needs. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, honing my skills on the golf course, and volunteering in the community.
