Client Testimonials

My husband and I were buying our first home and we were completely in the dark when it came not only to the housing market but understanding how our mortgage was going to work. Jacques and his team made our transition so smooth. He personally took time to answer all of our questions and worked around our busy schedule.
I would recommend Mortgage Allies to anyone especially first time home buyers. I am completely satisfied with their services and genuine hospitality. Buying a home is stressful enough, I am so relieved that we worked with Mortgage Allies to make it that much easier on us.

“Jacques & Leonette, we are truly grateful for all your help in connecting us to a lender so we could purchase our dream home!  We had never worked with a mortgage broker before and you made everything from the initial application right up to the all-important closing very smooth and painless.  We truly appreciate you accommodating our busy schedules and providing communication by phone and email throughout the whole process. We will surely be recommending you and your company to others.  I am writing this from our new home which we would not be in if it wasn’t for your help, expertise and guidance,Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

—Jaish & Tammi Chada

Jacques and the team at Mortgage Allies did an incredible job of preparing and walking us through all the options to allow us to get a mortgage that makes sense for us. He made sure he understood our needs, provided some helpful tips on optimising our approach and remained available to answer any questions. Even when we made some changes last minute he and his team were very helpful in changing or amending our documents.

Home buying can be a stressful experience, especially for first time buyers. Working with Jacques took the stress away and gave me a crystal clear understanding of how mortgages work. Jacques provided excellent advise not only on our mortgage but shared helpful tips on maintaining a organized and positive household budget. I highly recommend Jacques as a mortgage broker! Thanks for everything, Jacques!

—Jess Hinchliffe, Executive Assistant, Finance and Administration

Jacques made the process of getting a mortgage very simple and easy. His team was very responsive via e-mail and phone and during the actual face-to-face meeting, Jacques provided me with a lot of knowledge and took the time to run through the mortgage with me in detail which was extremely helpful. He certainly went beyond the call of what you’d expect from a mortgage broker. Thank you for your help, Jacques/Evelina!

Jacques is one of the hardest working individuals I know. He is trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He is also personable with incredible work ethics from the moment we started working together until long after the transaction has closed. I not only used him more than once myself, I have recommended his services to my sphere more than once and will definitely continue our business relationship for years to come.
I cheer for you, Jacques, and am grateful for all you have done for me and my friends. Thank you! j

—Nicole Charlton-Diffey

Being a first time home buyer, there was a lot of stress and uneasiness around the closing process. Jacques and co. were always around to provide their support and walk me through all of the steps. I felt well informed and assured throughout the whole process. It was nice to have one less thing to worry about during my home purchase knowing that my mortgage was in good hands.

—Ed Shin, Toronto

My husband and I would like to thank Jacques du Preez and his professional team for making our home purchase a great experience!  They offered extremely professional, organized and stress-free options arranging our financing. We both highly recommend their team.  They were available at all times to provide us with any information we required and made all explanations clear. We could not have completed our transaction without them! Thank you all!

—Helen Pszczolkowski

You would be wise to consider Jacques as part of your contacts. Yes there are many brokers but few that make the transaction unintimidating, effortless and timely. Actually a mortgage broker is the wrong description, credit consultant.

—Claude Tremblay, COO Red Cross Canada

Naomi and I already had a mortgage broker before we met Jacques, but during several encounters with him, we realized his sincerity and his passion for giving his clients the best rate for their situation. So we decided to ask him to do our mortgage. He also has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to finances and is very smart with figures. He knows the mortgage industry pretty well and gives advice freely. He is efficient and sees the entire mortgage process to completion. I wouldn”t hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
