Mortgage Qualification

Get Ready to hear the words - You’re Approved!
Here’s how we’re going to make it happen!

Step 1

The Discovery Call

Let’s Talk About What Went Wrong

In this step we’ll have a casual conversation and:

  • Talk about your desired outcome
  • Revisit obstacles the other lender brought up
  • Review your financing challenges
  • Explore different approaches

Now that we know a bit about you, let’s focus on getting you back on track. Starting to breathe a bit easier?!

Step 2

Develop a financing plan

Think of it like Tetris, but with Numbers

In this step we’ll work our magic behind the scenes and:

  • Determine how to maximize your income & assets
  • Look for ways to reduce/consolidate debts
  • Offer suggestions to fine tune your credit score
  • Submit your restructured application to several lenders

Financing makeover complete! Now that we have a plan to get you back on track, on to the next step!

Step 3

Meet Your New Lender

Don’t worry; we’ll do all the legwork

In this step, our experience/matchmaking skills shine through! And we’ll be there to:

  • Get your new financing approved
  • Explain all the terms and options
  • Wrap up the lender’s conditions
  • Help with transferring the relationship

We may have found a lender that understands your financial situation, but our work is not done!

Step 4

On Going Mortgage Reviews

Ironically, the end is just the beginning

In this final and ongoing step, we’ll be there to guide you through:

  • Maximizing your self employed income for future approvals
  • Suggestions to ensure a top notch credit score
  • Annual reviews to confirm you’re on track
  • A sounding board for other financial matters

After this stage, clients often comment on how easy we made the entire process and how much better they sleep at night, knowing they now have a lifelong mortgage advisor.

Mortgage Financing Plan in Place…
Don’t you feel lighter and more confident?!

Nishka was a dream to work with! When other mortgage brokers said it wasn’t possible, Nishka made it happen! She was a wealth of knowledge and really listened to what we wanted. She offered suggestions, answered all our questions, and reassured us every step of the way. She is professional, knowledgeable, and very experienced at what she does. Communication with her is a breeze— she responded almost immediately to every query we had. Buying your first home can be a stressful experience but with Nishka’s expertise and magic, our experience was exciting and enjoyable. We are so grateful to Nishka and her team and wholeheartedly recommend them! Thank you, Nishka for making our dream home a reality.

Nishka was extremely hardworking and professional during the entire experience of refinancing our home. She worked diligently through a complex application and always looked for solutions rather than finding road blocks. She was honest, positive, and communicated with us at every step of the way. I will use her exclusively in the future and would recommend her, and her team, to anyone looking for a top performing mortgage broker.
