“Thanks you so much for the outstanding service to my clients. When a deal needs to come together quickly, it is so important that every professional the client is working with keeps those deadlines. You did that so well. I was repeatedly impressed by how available you were when I called and the speed with which you got things done. You made things seamless and easy. I will be recommending you whenever I have the opportunity.” Terri Chalaturnyk – Coast Realty Group
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work you've done for us to get this mortgage . I know it's really hard to do that because of our credit situation, I don't know how you pulled it off ,but it's done, you made it happened. Also one thing I admired you about is that, you gave me your honest opinion. You said not to do it if I'm not comfortable and you mention that if I were you, you wouldn't do it because we will be more financially unstable but you will help me if I really want to go ahead and that's what happened. You made it happened ! Thank you so much . You will be highly recommended for sure .

“Great Results, Personable, High Integrity”

"Dara, I just wanted you to know that all is said and done and I thank you very much for your work and professionalism. And of course, if the time comes that someone I know is looking for magic.... I will obviously send them to you."
I just wanted to give you some positive feedback as per my experience with you and going through a mortgage broker.
It was my brother who had recommended you from his experience a few years ago when he needed a mortgage. I was hesitant to go through a broker as my previous experience was very negative. On my brother’s reassurance I did contact you via email to qualify for pre-approval before I started looking for a home.
This first step was very positive and pre-approval was an easy process with very little paperwork needed and quick-turn around time. The mortgage rate was also very competitive and lower than my own bank quoted.
After months of searching I finally had an accepted offer to purchase a home with the owners asking for less than a week for removal of all subjects. I emailed you on a Sunday afternoon and you called back in under 5 minutes. You had a positive, professional and easy going attitude, and happy to help, even with such a short deadline.
While I was also fairly prepared with more paperwork on my end, you still made it a very stress free experience, leading me through the process with less than a 72 hour acceptance/confirmation. My realtor was surprised to have the paperwork ready in such a short time.
Upon meeting you to sign the paperwork, you also took the extra step to go over all of the financial next-steps and prepare me for a final bank draft total. You were almost exact, and so I was able to avoid the “sticker shock” when the lawyer confirmed the final number owing upon completion.
Moving forward I will be recommending you to family, friends, coworkers etc. I would not be surprised if my realtor also brought you the occasional client needing expedited service.
Thank you again for your service and support and all of the extra attention to make the purchase of my new home a really great experience.
In an email to a number of Realtors….
“Hi guys, this Mortgage Broker [Dara] got us into a 5 yr closed for 4.99% a few months ago (when our existing bank couldn't touch it). He was a pleasure to deal with, his work is excellent and now the rates are even better....
I would recommend his services without hesitation and I know you Real Estate moguls may need some financing or re-financing from time to time. If you are interested, he can send you weekly mortgage updates to keep you apprised of what is going on.”

“Great Results, Personable, High Integrity. Dara did an excellent job in providing exactly what I needed in a mortgage. He started by beating all of the bank rates by a long-shot, then provided a better rate than was in our contract because rates dropped the day before closing. I would recommend Dara's services to anyone who needs a mortgage."

Thank you for helping us secure our mortgage. I can not think of any thing that you might have done to improve the process. We will certainly recommend you to anyone that we hear is seeking a mortgage or to refinance their mortgage.
Just wanted to thank you one more time for all the help. I can't even explain to you how big of a gift you have given to my family and I. Mom has never owned her own house her entire life, so that should explain the happiness and excitement to finally give her very own home. You and Raj are honestly a gift in our lives. Before I start balling my eyes at work and have my mascara turn my face in a disaster, I should end this here.
