Andrew Thake was wonderful to deal with. We are so happy with the mortgage rate we received through him! We can't recommend him enough. He was well organized, so quick to get back to all of our emails, and ensured we were happy with what we got. Thanks, Andrew!

Andrew is amazing. Super responsive, very knowledgeable about the products, and also just great to deal with. We were put in a very tough position by our bank and Andrew was able to save the day and get us a great mortgage that we're very happy with. Easily the best mortgage professional I've dealt with!

Andrew is remarkable professional, knowledgeable, timely and helpful. Myself and a relative have purchased mortgages through him and have had nothing but smooth, stress-free experiences. My favorite thing about working with Andrew is that he is truly invested in the client relationship and it is obvious that he realizes that giving great service over time is how you gain clients. He does not put any pressure on the client to act now or towards a certain product. I bought my house three years ago, and I have since been in touch with him by e-mail and phone a number of times, just to ask questions that come to mind about the future of my mortgage and future possible property investments and he emails me back right away and sets phone appointments with me simply to answer my questions...THREE YEARS AFTER HE CLOSED THE DEAL! He will really take care of you every step of the way. Not only that, but he is pretty active on social media, posting updates on the state of the market and financial tips and tricks in a way that is really easy to understand. You can source a lot of information these days, but to have all of this research available on your Facebook page by someone that knows the Ottawa market and that you can do business with personally really takes the mortgage financing process to another level.

Would highly recommend using Andrew's services, he is knowledgeable and answers all your questions to help you feel great about the decision you are making. Andrew helped make sure that we locked in our mortgage rate before the rate increase and made the process very easy and stress free for us. He keeps his eye on changes and comes to his clients with the offerings and options that work best for them which is really comforting. Thank you for a great experience Andrew!

I am an entrepreneur...self employed....lender nightmare? Andrew Thake had an angle and accepted the challenge to get me into a $720,000 home..... "Stated income!.. Let's take that approach... I can get this done!", he said. We were successful as a result of his efforts and common sense approach. He is a problem solver and very connected throughout the city of Ottawa. If you are self employed and looking for a mortgage, use him. Thanks Andrew~Use me as a reference any time!.

Highly recommend Andrew if you are in the market for a new house or even just renewing your mortgage. He and his team make it extremely easy and stress free to get a great rate! My friends and family are all jealous of what he was able to get me! He was always prompt with his responses, answered my thousands of questions and was extremely thorough and clear in what I needed to do. He is completely open to doing business to fit any schedule. If you prefer face to face, he can do that and meet you pretty much anywhere in the city. If you prefer primarily electronic, he is also okay with that!

Andrew Thake was on the ball throughout the entire process. He took his time to explain all about mortgages and the nuts and bolts of the process, making sure that we understood and were comfortable with the decisions we made. He is very good at responding quickly and being available for whatever questions at whatever stage. My fiancé and I couldn't have had a better experience working with Andrew as we purchaded our first home. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to enter the world of mortgages. We were reffered to him by family and we are thankful! Give him a call; he is super friendly!

I just finished my 2nd financing with Andrew's help and was very pleased. If you are a money expert or not, you can trust that Andrew will hustle on your behalf to get the best deal for your situation. His quick and helpful responses were really appreciated, and he was always generous with his time.

Andrew was fantastic! Not only did he take the time to talk us through every step but he was always available to answer any questions we could have had. I would very highly recommend working with Andrew, you won’t find anyone as knowledgeable or personable.

I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a mortgage broker! He was incredibly professional, responsive, and patient as he guided my husband and I though the process of finding a mortgage. He was even able to help us negotiate a lower rate than our initial preapproval.

I would highly recommend Andrew’s services. He was quick to find solutions for us and extremely responsive. Texts, phone calls and emails always were answered quickly and promptly. He really went the extra mile for us. Cannot imagine an easier to work with broker.

We had an amazing experience dealing with Andrew during the purchase of our first home! He is very quick to respond and works hard to find the best mortgage rates. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and made it as stress free as it could be! Andrew is also very flexible which made things 100% easier for us. Whether it was a phone call, an email, a text or meeting up at a nearby coffee shop, he always made sure our questions and concerns were answered. We would highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a mortgage.

Great service!

Andrew has helped me buy and sell two homes over the last 6 years. Recently, Andrew helped me through a nightmare experience with my new builder. The delays affected my mortgage application. I remain traumatized over the effects of this new builder experience. Andrew was there for me at all times. Always remained positive and professional. I can chuckle at our experience now but I feel like Andrew was one of my angels looking out for me at such a difficult time. Thank you, Andrew, for everything!

Claude S.

I never take the time to complete reviews but this time is different. Andrew, Thank you so much for all your help. We really appreciate that you took the time to explain us the process from beginning to end and didn’t just assume that we knew about it. Would definitely recomme Andrew to family and friends. A true 5 star service. Best, Gerard

Andrew is highly recommended. Much more pleasant working with him than other brokers/banks. He was very quick with getting answers for you and had knowledge/suggestions to make life easier as a home buyer.

Andrew and his team made the process of getting a mortgage easy! They were wonderful to work with and got us the best rate they could find! We highly recommend him!

Dana M.

My partner and I have been more than satisfied with Andrew’s services. He has always been an email, text, or phone call away if I have any questions. I have been working with Andrew for more than 12 years and he is always able to find, and secure, a competitive mortgage rate.
He explains the process thoroughly, and in a way that we understand - this is invaluable.
We appreciate Andrew and all that he has done in helping us navigate the mortgage world!

Jenna A.

Andrew has been more than helpful over the last few years. He had helped us set up our original mortgage and recently walked us through the renewal process, finding the best rate and always answering our (millions of) questions. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and spent a lot of time on the phone, email, and met in person in order to meet our needs.
We would recommend his services to anyone wishing to find, renew or refinance their mortgage. He is quick to respond, meet deadlines, and we always felt like we, and our finances, were in good hands!

Minh L.

Andrew took care of my partner and I when searching for competitive mortgage rates in the market. We knew we were in good hands based on the active communication he provided and the thorough explanations of each step through the process. We ended up with a rate on our mortgage that beat our expectations and couldn't be happier. Highly recommended!

Anna L.

Andrew was amazing to work with! As a first time home buyer the whole process seemed a little intimidating to me, however Andrew went above and beyond to answer any questions we had (in a very timely manner might I add). He guided my fiance and I through the entire process from start to finish and was supportive and encouraging when we had offers fall through. We never doubted that he had our best interest at heart and we were thrilled with the rate that we got! He's personable, approachable and extremely knowledgeable - he's the real deal. Highly recommend!

Nicole F.

Working with Andrew was an amazing experience from start to closing! Andrew helped to navigate me through the exciting process of buying my first home. Loved that he was always able to connect, had a great website with helpful tools and FAQs, and an easy software to upload all my documents. My closing date was 3 weeks, this could have been extremely stressful but instead Andrew was efficient and timely. Highly recommend Andrew!

Andrew Thake is amazing to deal with! He has the clients best interests in mind and is extremely responsive and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone for their mortgage needs.
