As first time home buyers, Shannon was very patient with us and made the journey to home ownership less scary. She was always very thorough in all her explanations and ensured we understood the process. Shannon always pointed us in the path that she felt was best for us, while ensuring we were comfortable with said path. I feel truly lucky that we found Shannon to help us in fulfilling our dream of owning a home. She is very knowledgeable, professional and returned any calls or emails very promptly. I wouldn't hesitate request her services in the future. Thank you Shannon.

We had a great experience with both Michelle and Garth and have started telling the world already!!! We couldn't have done it without them.

We are so pleased with everything! Garth has been really helpful throughout this entire process. As this was my first time buying a home and it was a stressful one I was pleased to have Garth guide me through step by step.

With all the things that went along with my recent home purchase, Shannon was one of the few people I was incredibly thankful to have on my side! Every step of the way she was there to guide me through the process, or answer questions and then at the very end she was even just providing moral support for the journey! I will recommend Shannon literally to everyone I know, and I personally will never go to anyone else!

I’ve always used a major bank for mortgages. Man, am I glad we called Shannon! Hands down! This was the best way to go for our purchase. I have never had that kind of service and attention to detail with a banker. in fact our bank of 20 years made it difficult to do a purchase but Shannon made it work! She keeps her eye on the whole process to ensure a smooth closing. She knows her business well and get things done! Highly, highly recommend!

Nicole

When the banks were difficult to deal with, and get a hold of, I’m so glad we called Shannon. Hands down would use her services again and highly recommend. She knows this business well and keeps the other professionals, that’s really involved, accountable so that closing happens as it should.

I just want to start out by saying Marissa Stolson is the best! I started out using a different Mortgage broker who gave me the run around for weeks. I was so stressed and had no idea what I was going to do. I, then called my relator and told her what was going on and she referred me to Marissa Stolson and after what I went through with the first lady, I was so nervous to try anyone else. I can tell you; Marissa is the best! She was always in contact with me even is there was no news, I never once had to bug her, and she honestly tried everything to get us approved. I am so happy I went with her. I will honestly refer her to anyone!! She is amazing and wonderful. I highly recommend her.

 Happy customer

Garth Lyon came through for me in the heart of the recession of 2008. Things were not easy then, and because of Garth and his creative solutions, I moved into my dream home.  Over the years Garth has provided valuable advice at no cost. He has saved me in many ways. At times of renewal and even general advice, he has always been there.  It's been about ten years now, and my trust in his character is stronger than ever. Garth made another surprising impact. By solving issues for a potential buyer of my home, we could close the sale of my house.  From mortgage to sale.  I recommend Garth Lyon with full confidence. Here is my email if you ever want to reach out: rdemchuk@gmail.com Thank you, Garth

Thank you, Garth and Jamie. We greatly appreciate the knowledge you brought to bear on our mortgage decision. We also appreciate how patiently you listened to our needs, expectations, and musings about the future. We like that you interpreted all the data and choices, then solidly recommended what you would do in our situation. Your guidance has been invaluable to us. We had assumed it was best to go straight to the banks we've had long relationships with. Now we see it's wise to instead work with a mortgage broker.

I wanted to let you both know that Street Capital has been fantastic!  They made increasing our payment 20% super easy (they just requested an e-mail).  Also, they encourage you to make lump sum payments via e-mail too.  It's so easy - you just re-send your template e-mail every month. We really want to thank you, both, for your concerted help getting us all set up for another bunch of years.  We couldn't be happier.  Thank you.  We always enthusiastically talk about you guys to folks looking to change their financing. Thanks again!

I learned about Shannon from a Facebook post where others were recommending her. I am so glad I contacted her!

Shannon is genuinely caring. She worked to understand our goals and wishes then looked for the best product for us. Shannon presented us with several options and explained them in average Joe language we could understand. She patiently answered all our questions and supported us in making the best choice for US! We would highly recommend Shannon.

Sally

April 2018

We came to Shannon after everything else had fallen through, with only days to go and figure out where we were going to get a mortgage or lose the home we were trying to purchase. It was all but a done deal within two days. Her efficiency and tenacity to work, to 'give the story behind the numbers' as she says it, and add that bit of emotion that everyone needs to get that 'yes' is what we needed. Without her we wouldn't be buying our first house, and instead would be looking for more rental options. We're so grateful for how she championed us, and all with a positive attitude. Such an amazing woman!

Heather and I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to Garth and Jamie for their assistance with what turned out to be a complicated mortgage process. Their professionalism and dedication is second to none. They were quick to address any stress and put our minds at ease every step of the way. We highly recommend using their services. You will not be disappointed! Thanks Again!

Mark

One thing for sure, Garth is one of the most patient person I've ever met! I truly learned and enjoyed a lot working with him when I purchased my first home in Canmore, Alberta. Over the past years, It was just a dream for me to own a property in the Rockies. Garth certainly helped me make that dream come true.. We've had a few challenges to deal with that made me feel like giving up but Garth stayed and worked with me until the end. He was always willing to look at available options for me and never run out of ideas to share. Garth is certainly someone you can rely on.. I owe him what I have now as his efforts are a big part of my success! Thanks for everything Garth :)

Cindy

I have used Garth 6 times now successfully in order to obtain much needed fnancing.  I always start with him and I have never needed to go anywhere else.  As impressive as his batting average with me is (100%) it pales in comparison to what he did for my family two years ago when we had challenges closing a deal.  I won't get in to all the details but Garth without asking extended extraordinary help to us. It was the kind of gesture that can never go unnoticed and has built loyalty for a lifetime.  He is more than a true professional; he is also a great man.  We would never go anywhere else. Thanks for the great service over the last 7+ years.

Dear Shannon,

From the first time we spoke, you helped put our minds at ease. We went from feeling like numbers to actually dealing with someone who cared and took the time to go over every detail.  Although, I found myself on edge and felt like I was going to have a nervous breakdown at times, you kept me calm and walked me through it.  We can not believe what a wonderful person and Broker you are.

We would highly recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Sincerely, Claudio and Misty - Airdrie

“As a new buyer in the city, we had a lot of questions. Marcus Keller patiently and effectively addresses all our concerns and walked us through all the necessary steps. He helped us to find the right mortgage with the ideal lender. But what set Marcus’s help apart from any other mortgage specialist we’ve experienced, is that, he was still available even after the deal closed. He continued to be friendly, efficient, and helpful when we had questions or concerns. He provided us with service that went the extra mile.”

Wow Garth! Wasn't sure when the day would finally come, but it has at long last. I cannot thank you enough for your patience as well as your perseverance and helping me every step of the way. Most notably when you were open and willing to help me after I was laid off with the co-signer route we ended up having to take. What a journey it's been! It is a great story to tell and one I will no doubt be sharing with others.  Thank you so much for everything. I will be highly recommending you to anyone in the market for a broker. :)

Bridget

I would like to tell you and Jamie that we appreciated very much the way things came around.  In the beginning I was skeptical, I thought that I could get the mortgage myself directly from the bank.  After working with you, I would never do any other way but with you. I appreciated your kindness and the speed and efficiency. It was a real pleasure to doing business with you. Thank you and all the best.

I can't rave enough about Shannon! She was so patient with us while we changed our minds multiple over the course of a year as we tried to figure out if we should sell or just refinance etc and she moved fluidly with us every step of the way. When we finally got our act together and made a decision, she moved quickly to get us the best interest rate and lender to work with our unusual situation.

“Our experience with Marcus was great from the beginning. Especially when it came to explaining to us everything that we needed to know about our mortgage renewal. The rate was good and the overall experience was a pleasant one. Keep up the good work and we hope to stay in touch with him whenever we may have any questions in the future.

Just a quick email to say that we closed successfully on Monday and that we are now fully moved in to our new house; and to (more importantly) say thank you very much for all you have done for us to ensure that the transaction was successful!

Out of the 3 houses that we have purchased, this transaction has definitely been the quickest and smoothest that we have experienced to date. Looking back on it all, I primarily attribute this to your very efficient and professional handling of the whole thing. If you would like any recommendation from us please do not hesitate to let me know!

Thanks again from both of us – we’ll be in touch in the near future with an invite to our house warming party.

Hope all is well!

Cheers, Martin.
