Topic: Variable, fixed or both financing….  Financing 101

Mortgage Alliance is the largest volume mortgage brokerage in Canada
with over 35,000 mortgages totaling over $8 billion dollars funded
throughout the country in 2008. Last year
Mortgage Alliance purchased the Meridian Mortgage Franchise Network.
Based in BC, the Meridian Group funded approximately $1 billion and
over 3000 mortgages in 2008.The combination of both companies further
strengthened Mortgage Alliance’s position in the market place, where
volume of mortgages funded is king. During these times of tight credit
and banking uncertainty, lenders are choosing to work with only the
very best and most reputable mortgage brokerages. As such, not all
mortgage brokers are equal and only the top tier can offer the best
rates and products to their clients.
Mortgage Alliance-Meridian Mortgage Services, a franchise of
Mortgage Alliance, was established in 1995. One of the highest volume
residential Mortgage Brokerages in British Columbia, Meridian Mortgage
Services funded over $100,000,000 in residential mortgages in 2008.
This high volume, coupled with the power of Mortgage Alliance, allows
Kyle Green to provide rates, exclusive mortgage products and services
which are far superior to the average mortgage broker. In fact, Kyle’s
team was so successful in 2008 that they were ranked number 5 for all
mortgage brokers in Canada by Canadian Mortgage Professional Magazine.
