A Letter From Darlene

I believe in the business of relationships build upon mutual trust and respect, providing service with full transparency.

My approach is to accurately assess each client’s unique situation, integrating short and long-term financial goals by providing the right mortgage solution.

I understand the importance of knowing what impacts mortgage rates and have implemented systems to monitor the weekly economic data to help you obtain the best rate by knowing when to lock.

Choosing the right mortgage solution is crucial. Equally important is choosing the right mortgage planning specialist to entrust with your family’s financial future. My knowledge of the tax and financial implications of mortgage and real estate investments enables me to provide mortgage solutions that will help you save money on income, capital gains and estate taxes.

Bottom line…I am committed to you and your success.
