About Dominion Lending Centres
Dominion Lending Centres is Canada’s national mortgage and leasing company with more than 2,300 members offering free expert advice across Canada – taking the hassles out of the mortgage process and simplifying your life.
With access to more than 230 lending institutions, including big banks, credit unions and trust companies, our licensed team of mortgage professionals is familiar with a vast array of available mortgage products – ranging from first-time homebuyer programs to financing for the self-employed to financing for those with credit blemishes.
The trend towards using mortgage brokers/agents to arrange mortgage financing is continually increasing. Why has this shift occurred? Well, very simply put, TOP-NOTCH SERVICE and UNBIASED ADVICE!
The banks are cutting back on staff and centralizing operations to save money. This doesn’t bode well for you, the consumer. Unlike individual banking representatives, who often move from one branch to another hoping to advance in the corporations, your mortgage broker works to form lifelong relationships with their clients.
Today, many banks are buying out smaller trust companies to expand their portfolios. Most major banks lend out money through these trust arms at reduced rates. If you just stick with your bank, you lose access to hundreds of other financing arms – including offerings from multiple banks, credit unions, and trust companies that may have better rates, products, and terms to offer you.
Dominion Lending Centres’ mortgage professionals work for you – not the lenders – to ensure you receive the best rates and products available in today’s marketplace. Whether you’re looking to purchase your very first home or upgrade to a new home, renew your existing mortgage, refinance your mortgage to free up some equity, purchase investment properties or vacation homes, or lease business-related equipment, Dominion Lending Centres has a variety of products available to meet your unique needs.
Our mortgage professionals are experts in their field and many are ranked among the best nationally.
