We completely analyze the market to make sure each and every single one of our customers leaves with a smile and a great rate.

Professionalism is a huge part of what makes a successful mortgage broker. We understand that you are busy, so its important to us that the whole mortgage process goes as smoothly as it can. That means we are punctual, will be on time, will respond quickly to email and always answer your phone calls.

Always used to do my mortgage through my bank but got sick of the mediocre rates and the process taking forever. Decided to go and find a broker, read some reviews and made some phone calls and ended up working with Leon and the guys at Certified Mortgage Broker. Not only do they find better rates but they are always easy to reach and take you through the process step by step and answer any questions you have.

Excellent customer service, no hidden or unexpected fees, very transparent, they keep you updated along every step of the way and always pick up the phone or call back within minutes. VERY professional and honestly exceeded all of my expectations. Not to mention they have the lowest rates I’ve seen.

Leon and his team have been nothing but amazing since we started working with them. They took the time to explain the whole process and how it works. He then sat down and we figured out what mortgage would work best for us. Extremely patient and understanding, honestly can’t recommend these guys enough.
