A Network of Business Partners in Cochrane
How do local Cochrane residents get access to wholesale mortgage rates?
We are partnered up with major banks and wholesale mortgage finance companies which enables us to provide market-leading products and rates. Knowing what is available to you in the Canadian mortgage market is vital, rates are not a one size fits all kind of product.
We will go over your needs and find out what works for your financial goals. Together we choose the rate and product that will save you the most in the long run. We like the idea of having a choice when it comes to your mortgage.
We are excited to partner with Lisa Elle of Ellements Financial Group, together we help Cochranites to be financially savvy and have every aspect of money ready for not only today, but for your future as well. You never know what may come your way.
Uncomplicate the Process
Our goal is to help navigate the home-buying process. Of course technology is wonderful, until it gets complicated. We believe in communicating the way you prefer, and have every angle covered. You like to text? So do we. You like to email? No problem! If you like to explain things over a call, we are at your fingertips. And better yet, if you want to come into the office and sit down with us, we love meeting clients as well.
Getting a mortgage these days takes time, effort and a seemingly never-ending pile of paperwork. Income, credit scores and deposit funds are key factors to borrowing money, but the sheer process of taking the right steps to get everything into place can feel a bit time-consuming and detailed. We have the process down to a science, and we help clients move through quickly and efficiently.
The Personal Touch
Lorrie loves the community, the people, the small-town feel, and the easy way of life here. “I have made so many friends over the years, sure we provide mortgage services, but it has been so cool to get to know the clients, heck they are my neighbors.”
Newcomers to Cochrane hold a special place in Lorrie’s heart. “I love chatting with people that are moving to Cochrane. Because I have spent the last 13 years in Cochrane, I can share my experiences with them, from the schools to the rink, to small businesses and the amenities that are available, I am able to help them feel at home before they get here”.
Lorrie’s favourite question for newcomers is “What is the most important to thing to you about relocating?” The match is almost perfect every time, all the boxes are checked and the next thing you know they are here living the life they envisioned it to be.
Life has its challenges, Smart Mortgage Solutions focuses on helping families build wealth and making sure their finances are in check. Home buyers need more than a mortgage, they need help planning a future, whether it be a life insurance policy or a will, Lorrie has partnered with key professionals that put your financial footprint into place.
We love being here, downtown Cochrane is our home too, mortgages are all we do. All day. Every day.
