Dominion Lending Centres Mountain View – Winner of the Best Customer Service Award 2012 – CMP
My mission is to provide superior mortgage services to my clients and ensure a positive experience through communication, education and empathy. My goal is to achieve unparalleled customer service thus encouraging our clients to confidently refer DLC Mountain View to their friends, family and colleagues.
DLC Mountain View is a franchise of the Dominion Lending Centers which is largest mortgage franchise company in Canada. We can assist you with mortgage financing all across the country. Independently owned and operated, our brokers are free to shop and find you the best mortgage without influence from any particular lender or Real Estate company.
DLC Mountain View is owned and operated by Jan Dale and Wende Dawes. Together they have over 40 years experience in the real estate and mortgage industry.
DLC Mountain View maintains an excellent working relationship with the lenders within the brokerage system. We deal mostly with the major lenders that consumers are already familiar with including TD Canada Trust, Scotiabank, Westminster Savings and some ‘mortgage only’ institutions such as First National Financial, Street Capital and MCAP. Due to the high volume of mortgages we place with lenders we are offered the most favorable rates and products, often unavailable at local bank branches.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the market and providing excellent service to our customers. If you don’t qualify at a traditional lender our contacts with Private Lenders ensure you a fair rate with minimal fees. Our goal is to offer quality customer service and low rates.
At DLC Mountain View, we can place a mortgage for any purpose which includes purchasing a property, refinancing a current mortgage, or doing a transfer of an existing mortgage upon maturity from one lender to another.
