“Can We Work With You As Our Broker If We Live In Kitchener?”

Hi Ross:

We are buying our first house in Kitchener this summer, and we decided we would like your help with our mortgage, as we are regular readers of your articles. But we are concerned about the distance between KW and your office in North York. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Wayne

Dear Wayne: Well, first we can ‘meet’ either by telephone or by a free video call over Skype. It will be as if you are in my office, without having to leave your living room.

You can ask me any questions you like during that conversation, and that will allow me to assess what kind of mortgage you should be looking for, and what you will have to do to qualify for it.

If you like my feedback at that point, then we can begin a ‘virtual’ business relationship – one in which we theoretically never have to meet – if that is what is most comfortable for you.

Between the phone, fax, scanner and email, we can accomplish everything we need to without consuming travel time and money. Actually, this is happening more than you might think these days – especially for people like myself who rely on their online presence and happy client referrals to generate new client relationships.

There are many pluses to dealing with an experienced, competent mortgage broker – I won’t list them here, but it’s one of a very few professional services in life that won’t cost you a penny. Looking forward to helping you and Tanya; thanks for the reach out Wayne.
