Calgary Mortgage Broker expanding to offer services in more Alberta cities

Mortgage and Lending with Arnason Mortgages
Due to the increasing demand for effective and successful mortgage broker services in Alberta we are expanding our Calgary business to include several new cities in Alberta and rural Alberta with a focus on individuals and families that have credit challenges or non-traditional incomes such as self-employment.

When purchasing a home, revenue property or looking for refinancing and debt consolidation options the approval process can be challenging; for people with low credit scores, past credit challenges, or income streams that are not the standard norm the challenges are exponentially more difficult and often result in applications being turned down or approved at a much higher rate that they could actually qualify for.

Additionally, with the announcement from Canada’s financial regulator (The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions) this week that it is stepping in “to increase monitoring of home loans and lines of credit” issued by the big banks in Canada, the approval process will be getting tighter and many individuals will need to access the services of a mortgage broker to help navigate the mortgage application process.

With all of the recent changes in the mortgage industry people shopping for a mortgage can get caught in a negative cycle of having to submit multiple applications in an attempt to get approved and get the best terms, what they often don’t realize is that every application they submit results in a credit check which can further negatively affect their overall credit score. As a broker I am up to date on all of the industry changes which enables me to help my clients complete their application with the highest chance of success. I also have access to more competitive rates and alternative financing options that individuals would not typically be able to reach on their own and we only need to do one credit check regardless of how many lenders we approach on their behalf.

With this expansion we are also hoping to increase awareness of what a mortgage broker can do for individuals and families and clear up many common misconceptions about brokers including the wide-held mistaken beliefs that brokers charge a fee for their services, that they only handle new mortgages, and that they do not work with major banks.  We work on behalf of our clients to secure mortgage financing from a variety of lenders including banks and financial institutions. There is absolutely no cost or fees for our clients whether they are applying for a mortgage, refinancing, debt consolidation, or a mortgage renewal to use the services of a broker.

We are now accepting applications from new clients seeking mortgages, home financing, debt consolidation, and mortgage renewals in Calgary, Airdrie, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Edmonton, and rural Alberta at our website  you can reach us by email at or by phone through the new toll free number for Alberta 1 888 722-5086

When we were selling in Vegas we would help many people get in touch with great mortgage people like yourself because most of our buyers would start out in owner financing and then would refinance within a few years, that is where the mortgage professional helped. They were able to help them fix their credit to the point they could refinance.

Welcome to Activerain, 

As someone else who is newer to the rain, here have been the two places I have spent most of my time learning from those before me. The first isActiverain University and the second is the Activerain Newbies group on Activerain. I think I learn more in those two spots on blogging and business building than I could anywhere else. The people here are sol willing to share their knowledge.
