About

What’s the mortgage agent advantage anyway? 

You get a commitment of follow up – a promise that banks can fall short on.
I will keep in touch with around the clock updates if necessary, while you wait for your approval.

I get the deal done for you. Paperwork is my job, not yours!
I make it easy for you by managing the process from start to finish.

Not available 9-5? No problem, our appointment can be worked around your schedule.
Sometimes we need to move quickly! I am flexible for your convenience.

I have a strong, personal relationship with my lenders.
Understanding my lenders are a key to your approval success.

You can often get an answer the same day.
Turnaround time can be as fast a few hours for non-complex applications.

Qualifying for a mortgage has many variables.
When I understand your needs, I know how to ‘market’ your application to get to the ‘yes’ you need to hear!

Intimidated by mortgages? Confused by credit scoring?
Let me explain in plain language until you’re comfortable.

I hold the only nationally recognized designation for mortgage agents.
The AMP designation is my commitment to you for excellence, ethics and education.

Having worked in a bank for a number of years, I’ve made the decision to put the needs of my clients first. I understand the frustration of trying to arrange mortgage financing through traditional banking channels and having to meet difficult criteria, or worse; being turned down outright.

It’s for this very reason that I choose to work with Bob Woods of Assured Mortgage Services. It’s no secret that Bob’s exceptional level of client care is renowned in the Halton Region. I hope to continue this level of service by expanding our outreach to Acton, Guelph, and beyond!

But don’t take it from me… here’s what my clients say:

…her real world, down to earth, educated approach gave us great confidence through a most difficult and important purchase for us, our home. We value Tara as a most important part of our home buying team.

P & S. H., Waterdown

…she took the time to discuss everything with us, ensuring that we understood all of our options. We were pleased with how thorough she was and now have a mortgage that suits us. I will continue to recommend her to all of our friends that are getting new mortgages or those that are looking to get better rates….

Tara, I wanted to express my thanks to you for the outstanding support that you provided to my son recently when he was navigating his very first mortgage. The level of advise and support that you provided was “over the top” in my experience. When my other kids (or their friends) are ready to make their leap into the housing market I will definitely encourage them to contact you for superior customer service and mortgage expertise. Many Thanks!!

H.D., Oakville

It helps that you are a cheery and easy to get along with person yourself. YOU are helping US get a house so THANK YOU! I am glad it is shaping up to be a positive experience on both ends.

A.R., Acton

You were amazing and I’m going to keep sending you my clients because you handle your business the best and smoothest I’ve seen and I LOVE IT!

K.C., Orangeville
