A Painless Process

Thanks so much for making the mortgage process so painless. I appreciated the advice and information you provided, and that you then allowed me to make my own decision. Also that you put up with my indecision over whether to go variable-interest or fixed!

Dear Tracy and Team,

Uzma and I would like to thank your whole team in making our current and previous mortgage experiences seamless and happy ones. We both appreciate the pleasant atmosphere, top notch and timely customer service at your office. Your role as our mortgage expert instills confidence in us. We hope to continue this relationship in future years.
Kasif and Uzma

Best possible solution

My wife and I were looking to consolidate our expenses to ease the burden, and we were referred to Tracy Valko by our current mortgage provider. When we spoke to Tracy about our needs and what we wanted to do, she found us the best possible solution, which would ease the financial strains. She shopped around to get us the best possible mortgage rate and consolidate other expenses. Tracy and her team always kept myself and my wife informed and up to date on the progress of our application with the lender in the best and professional manner, making the whole thing for us run so smooth. We would definitely use Tracy and her team again, and refer her to our friends and family. Thank you Tracy and to your team for all of your help! Truly appreciated!
Csaba and Carolyn S.
