My husband and I had the pleasure of working with THE MORTGAGE CENTRE when purchasing a house that we thought we would never own.  THE MORTGAGE CENTRE really went above and beyond to help us purchase a home. They made us feel important and they were excited for us as well when we got the final decision. THE MORTGAGE CENTRE has changed our life and made our dreams come true.


Sincerely Marlene L



testimonial02I have had the opportunity to work with Allison Tolley on several real estate transactions over the past 7 years. She is efficient, professional and she really knows mortgages. I have sent many clients to her in the past and feel confident sending her my valued clients knowing they will be in good hands and will get the job done for them.

”It was clear that Ryan was committed to understanding our needs and securing the best mortgage possible for my wife and I. Ryan was available at my convenience, really at nearly any hour of the day. He took the time to make sure that my wife and I were well educated on the lending process every step of the way. I doubt that anyone’s financials are simple and straightforward, but I feel ours were particularly complicated, and what’s more, we had an extremely short timeline, yet Ryan succeeded in getting us a mortgage at the best rate.”

-Randal Lucas

”I met with Ryan to discuss the possibility of buying my first home. Ryan explained the process and was very knowledgeable and friendly from day one. He made sure I got the best rate, and went above and beyond my expectations as a Mortgage Broker. I am extremely pleased with the level of customer service and professionalism that he provided. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home. Thanks.”

-Jesus Cabrera

”Ryan was AWESOME! After being turned away by numerous banks and other brokers, Ryan gave us a chance!! He worked so hard to get creative with our application and it eventually got us the mortgage that everyone else said was impossible! I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone I know! Extremely hard working and friendly!”

-Bonnie Smith

”We looked around and Ryan was by far the most helpful and seemed interested in getting the best deal for us! I would highly recommend working with him, we’re really happy with the financing he got for us!”

-Lara Jensen


”Darren Gruninger was the most helpful, informative and trustworthy Mortgage Broker first time buyers could ask for. He walked us through every step of the way and answered all of our questions until he was satisfied that we understood everything. We will definitely be recommending your service and especially Darren’s! Thank you for this short survey and a chance to air my comments.”

-Dana Gatzky

-Jamie Eklund

”Very satisfied with the high level of customer service I received from your staff! I never took out a mortgage before and had many concerns before I met with my mortgage specialist. After our first meeting, I was confident that my mortgage needs would be met, and more importantly, I was confident that I had all the information I needed to proceed further and eventually purchase my first home.”

-Steve Sander

”Darren Gruninger was awesome. He met us within a couple days of phoning for an appointment. He understood what we needed to get a mortgage and he went beyond expectations to help us in every step. He was very patient with our questions that we had when we phoned him during the process. We have nothing but praise for his professionalism. His business cards are being handed out to anybody we know looking for a mortgage. Thanks again Darren.”

”Craig Paskuski was very nice to deal with, Informative, polite, and helpful. We were currently dealing with a different mortgage person that literally yelled at me (not associated with your firm.) I was shocked. I dumped that idiot real fast! Craig showed us how a real, mature person can behave and listen to the customer. As well, Craig had a lot of patience with us. I’m sure I drove him crazy but he “held in there” with me. I would certainly recommend him.”

-Douglas Hazuda


”Thanks for a wonderful mortgage experience. Elias was extremely helpful, and presented several great ideas and options I hadn’t even considered. I will never renew, transfer or take out a mortgage without the assistance of a Broker again. Everything happened exactly as promised and on time. Elias stayed in constant contact and kept us up to date on everything during the process. I highly recommend Elias and The Mortgage Centre.”

-Jeff Davidson


”Howard Newton quoted “People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it.” How true, my wife and my self are in the process of purchasing our second home. We have forgotten how involved and how time consuming the whole home buying process is. I feel totally comfortable in recommending Allison in that she totally looks after her client’s best interest. I will not shop though a bank again for a mortgage. Allison has made the process comfortable, affordable and has ensured all the steps are taken care of, right to the last detail. That way I don’t have to do it!!”

-David Kunst

”We recommend Ally for all your mortgage needs. We’ve had 4 mortgages processed through Ally and they were all processed seamlessly. Ally’s service is outstanding in all regards. The dreaded paperwork ended up being stress free. Ally is extremely easy to get a hold of, which for us, is very important. We were able to consult with Ally repeatedly during one of our offers to purchase. She took about 6 back to back phone calls from us. One of our mortgages needed to be processed in a ridiculously short time frame. Ally made it happen! Ally is always available to us for any questions even after our mortgages have long been processed. She is someone whom you can consider as part of your team, always looking to do what is in your best interest!”

-Candy Salik

”Allison is a great person, all around. She is dedicated, motivated and always has your best interests in mind. Allison is hard working, confident and works well under pressure.”

-Nancy Churchill


”I always recommend you to everyone interested in mortgaging. I can’t see why anyone would go any place else. Great people, great service!”

-Edward Stoller

”I was completely satisfied and impressed with the service I received from The Mortgage Centre. The process was completed in a very timely manner even though it was the Christmas season. The Mortgage Specialist I dealt with was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful throughout the process and I would, and already have, recommended this service to a friend.”

-Nancy Lewis

”My wife and I obtained our new mortgage through a Mortgage Agent with The Mortgage Centre. She is very knowledgeable and obtained the best we could qualify for. We have been Mortgage Centre clients for 15 plus years; always with Firstline. The above referral refers to the original mortgage obtained.”

Thank you, you’ve probably saved me thousands of dollars in interest and you’ve saved me countless hours of time.”
