Home Financing: call Phil McDowell, Mortgage Alliance Mortgages are Marvellous. Phil has almost 40 experience in finance, past Prairie Regional Manager for RBC, 15 years in the residental and commercial brokering experience, past president & current director of the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association, instructor for the Mortgage Associates Program. He is the guy that the news guys go to in Calgary when they want some more information as to when changes are made to mortgages. www.askphil.ca phone # 403-630-7852. Do note I do have a bias towards Phil, he is my husband and after 40 years do know his strengths and his weaknesses and mortgages is not one of them.
Home Appraisals: I like dealing with Roger & Jane Holmes from Holmes Real Estate Appraisal Services. Note every financial institution has there own list of preferred appraisers so if youre looking to re-finance its best to call Phil (above) first. I have add Roger and Jane on my list because you may have need of an appraiser for an estate situatuon or a separation/divorce. I have known Roger and Janie for about 15 years and have always found them to be very fair and unbias. If you have any questions call them. Phone # 403-246-6900.
