Testimonials

I am so proud to post testimonials from my clients. Thank you!

“In 2008 my husband and I were looking to purchase our first home and we were completely lost in what to we needed to do. Our real estate agent at the time recommended we get a mortgage broker and that John Harker is a personal friend of his and is the best in the business. John was great right from that first phone call. He made the experience much easier and he explained every step to us – plus he was able to get us the best rate available. When we sold our home to purchase our second home late 2013 we did not hesitate to contact John again. We would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for the best in quality service! John is honest, professional, fast to respond to questions, easy to work with and he genuinely cares about you and that he gets you the best mortgage rates.” – Tamara Zummach

“We had checked with our bank for a mortgage and decided to see what other options were out there for our first house. Found John Harker online and so glad we did, very experienced and so easy to deal with. John sent us a first time Home buyers guide from Canada Mortgage & Housing that answered all questions. Our bank as we found out was quoting “Posted Rate” and John got us a much better interest rate and saved us thousands of dollars in interest charges over the first 5 years. We had heard that mortgage brokers charge a fee, John DID NOT CHARGE US and does not charge as a professional mortgage person. We would strongly recommend “Coach John” for all your mortgage needs. As it turned out John had coached some of our friends in Minor Hockey.” – Matt & Brittney Cartmel
