Investment properties are now accessible to many average Canadians.
Investment properties - particularly smaller, residential real estate - are now accessible to many average Canadians. And as any homeowner will confirm, real estate has been one of the most attractive investment categories in Canada for the past decade. If you're considering an investment in real estate, start by having a conversation with an experienced Mortgage Broker, to explore some of the innovative new options and great rates available today.
There are many Canadians jumping at the chance to own a recreational property. The aging baby boomer population is flush with capital and an insatiable desire for a waterfront or other recreational property. And with the advent of better roads, Internet and telephone service, satellite service, and winterization expertise, people are realizing that vacation properties can make ideal retirement homes. No longer just perceived as a welcome retreat from the city, a second home is now viewed as a solid financial investment with the added value of a potential retirement property.

My husband and I are very grateful we had Alberta Mortgage Professionals help us with the purchase of our new home! We were very lucky to work with Marc Crossman! Marc worked very hard in a professional and timely matter and answered any questions we had to help make some tough decisions a lot easier! We couldn't have asked for any better! Thank you so much!

I just wanted to thank you with all my heart. Katie and myself really and truly appreciate all that you did for us, and for not giving up on us. You had faith, and that helped to keep us determined. I know we weren't the easiest people to deal with at times, but we really and truly are so thankful. Thank you so so much for helping us make our dreams come true!

Because of my circumstances it was a longer than normal process. Nicole was very patient and extremely helpful. She kept in touch over that period of time and was understanding of my situation. It was a very positive experience. I highly recommend Nicole to anyone needed home financing.

This was a difficult transaction with a short timeline. All previous mortgage experiences were via banks. It was great to have the personalized support of a broker to navigate the requirements for the transaction to occur on time.

'Marc took the time to answer all my questions. He was easily reachable by text and email, my preferred forms of contact. The online document system and step by step instructions made things so easy and stream lined. He worked well with my real estate agent and was extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Thanks for all the help!'

I was a bit reluctant to complete this whole process with someone who I would never meet in person, but Marc made the whole process comfortable and relatively easy - things can only be so simple when a fax machine is involved ;)
I discovered Alberta Mortgage Professionals through a referral and I couldn't be happier for it. The timing was perfect as my wife and I were in the middle of securing refinancing on our home and weren't getting much information from our then mortgage broker. We decided to contact Marc at Alberta Mortgage Professionals. This was our first refinancing experience and he was gentle with us. He patiently walked us through the process, volunteering useful tips along the way. To top it all off, he got us an interest rate that was not only lower than the one our previous broker offered, but substantially lower than our mortgage rate at the time. The thing I liked most about dealing with Alberta Mortgage Professionals was I felt they had my best interest at heart. I felt I could trust Marc and in the end, that trust paid off handsomely.

Well Marc we finally got our keys to our new home yesterday. It was all worth it waking up there this morning. Even the dog is happy. Thanks again for your patience and the time that you spent working on our behalf. I appreciated it while we were going through the whole process but I really did this morning when I woke up and realized it was final. Thanks again Marc I am not sure how we would have made it through without your help right down to the sandwiches on the day we moved. We will be calling you again when we move to an acreage.

My mortgage application unfortunately tangled with my separation agreement (as my husband and I were divorcing at the time) which lead to a LOT of last minute stress and scrambling to get the right information to the right people. Marc was there to keep me informed and act as middleman with the lenders, and offer some encouragement and support when I really needed it. Although there was a slight delay in possession (about one week), everything went through in the end. The 'congratulations' flowers that Marc sent were so thoughtful.
Marc was great to deal with, very helpful and always stayed in touch via email/phone calls through the process. As we were out-of-province buyers going through the process long-distance, Marc made it very easy for us.
Dominion Lending Centre helps me to achieve my goal - purchasing my first home in Canada. Marc was very helpful, patient and hardworking. I truly recommend this to all first time home buyers.
I really appreciate all the help and high quality service Marc Crossman provided. He was very helpful in exploring all the options that I had as a first time homebuyer, especially with my different problems and other conditions that were kind of hindering my financing. Also with the time constrain on completing the transaction, Marc left no stone unturned to make sure that the whole mortgage paper work and all the formalities were completed on time. When we were finishing the paperwork Marc sat with me and explained in detail all the points, which was very helpful as I had no knowledge of the details. Over all an awesome experience, I will refer anyone who needs these services to Marc and am going back to get HELOC. Thanks a ton.
I really appreciated how receptive Marc was to all of our questions. As first time home buyers, we were unsure about the process of obtaining a mortgage, so Marc ensured that we understood the ins and outs of it all. It was because of this that we felt so comfortable making the leap into purchasing our own home.
The experience gained as a first time mortgage renewal was beyond what was expected. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family to use Dominion Lending. The agent was very professional and patient.
I was quite satisfied with the level of knowledge, communication and service provided to help secure financing for my first investment property. I look forward to getting financing for my next properties thorough Alberta Mortgage Professionals.

We received some of the best service I have experienced from any industry. We provided our information and in only 4 days, we were able to remove our financing conditions. Marc knew what our business goal was and then pursued options that would help us achieve that goal. It wasn't about the mortgage product, but about matching what we wanted to the best product for achieving what we wanted. Thanks very much.

I really appreciated everything Marc did to help me get the right mortgage. He was very accurate and efficient. At the end I got what I expected and I am very happy to own my first house in Canada. Thanks a lot.
I've bought 2 investment properties through Mark Crossman and Would definitely say he is a very important asset to my real estate investment team. He is very knowledgeable and he works hard to give you the best service in very timely manner.
I enjoyed my experience with Alberta mortgage professionals and Marc Crossman. I was able to communicate via email, which fits my busy schedule. He followed up immediately after my initial inquiry and made the process of getting a mortgage straightforward and stress free.
