This was my first time using a mortgage broker, so I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised! Andrew was super responsive - whether it was calls or emails, he always reached out in a timely matter. He was also very proactive in getting us the best mortgage rate, reaching out to me before a scheduled sync up we had to let me know he saw rates were on the rise so we could lock down the lowest mortgage rate possible. You can't go wrong with entrusting your mortgage needs to Andrew. Thanks, Andrew!

Darren Sharp

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 broker in Ottawa!

Stephanie Davy

As a first-time home buyer, I am very happy that we chose Andrew as our Ottawa mortgage broker. He was very responsive, knowledgeable and patient, answering our many questions and concerns in a quick and friendly manner. Andrew clearly explained the process to us and made sure we understood and were comfortable with each step. And perhaps most importantly, he helped us secure the best mortgage rate! I'd definitely work with him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Satinder Matharu

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!.

Amanda G.

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! 

Michel Deveau

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!

Great service!

syreeta barnett

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 ST-Germain

Helene H.

Andrew was great to work with. He was recommended to me by my real estate agent Mike Devonish. Andrew was very easy to communicate with whether it was via phone or email as we are from the GTA. He helped me and my fiance with an awesome mortgage rate and the whole process went very smooth. We'd use him again !

Thomas Lobrichon

I’m a first time home buyer, and I couldn’t have asked for a better mortgage broker. Andrew helped me get a really good rate, he was always very professional and was always available to answer questions during the whole process. I highly recommend him.

Viktoria Lang

Andrew made my first home buying experience so smooth. He's so helpful and clearly details what is required to get a mortgage. He helped me get a great rate, and kept me apprised of all goings on behind the scenes. He is very patient, efficient, and personable. Recommend!

Amanda Lewis

Dasha Shakov

As a first-time home buyer, I highly recommend working with Andrew! Andrew helped me secure a mortgage in just a few days, before my closing date, which was impressive and greatly appreciated! Andrew was extremely patient, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns and was always available to talk on the phone, by email, and over text, even after hours. Moreover, a lot of the groundwork was done electronically, which made things very easy and smooth. Last, but certainly not least, Andrew helped me secure a great mortgage rate. I will definitely be recommending Andrew to my first-time home buyer friends.

Allison Caverly

As a first-time home buyer, I am very happy that we chose Andrew as our broker. He was very responsive, knowledgeable and patient, answering our many questions and concerns in a quick and friendly manner. Andrew clearly explained the process to us and made sure we understood and were comfortable with each step. And perhaps most importantly, he helped us secure a great rate! I'd definitely work with him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

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.

Nicolas C.

We reached out to Andrew with a tight deadline for a mortgage approval and he did not disappoint. Throughout the process he was attentive, very responsive and thorough, and was able to get us a fantastic rate, well below our banks rate. Highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a new mortgage, refinancing or even for general inquiries. Thanks Andrew!

Rachelqueen29

Andrew was easy to reach and very approachable. The process to upload documents was efficient and easy. He explained the mortgage papers in detail and promptly responded to my questions/concerns.

Sarah Depow

Andrew is so caring and kind no matter the situation. He works hard and keeps you up-to-date at every step of the process. I feel safe in Andrew's hands and I can trust I have a mortgage broker who has integrity and who provides quality service. Andrew is accessible and patient. I'll be recommending Andrew Thake to everyone I know. You can even 'hear' his smile over the phone :)

Dana MacDonald

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 Anderson

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!

Nora Luberti

Tessa Piscitelli

Being new to Ottawa, we came to work with Andrew following a recommendation from our real estate agent. We couldn’t have been happier with the attention and service we received. After having a frustrating experience with a traditional bank, Andrew was able to help us secure a mortgage at a rate lower than what previous banks had offered us! His attention to detail and patience with a couple of first time home buyers was greatly appreciated!

Peter Ryell

Andrew came highly recommended to my wife and I and we weren’t disappointed.

He had excellent attention to detail, was very patient explaining each and every aspect of the lending process to us (we were first time home buyers) and was always quick to respond to our emails and phone calls.

I look forward to working with Andrew again for our next home

Minh Le

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!

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 Ferron

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.

My closing date was 3 weeks, this could have been extremely stressful but instead Andrew was efficient and timely. Highly recommend Andrew!

I wouldn't hesitate to renew our mortgage with Andrew in the future
