A little about Daina, her mission and her company...
Daina Stringer is a Grande Prairie resident for 25 years after being transplanted from being a Saskatchewan girl. She was raised in a little town called Swift Current. The little town she loved but gave her the drive to expand her surroundings and talent. GP quickly became home as being a natural outdoorsy girl, Daina now loves all that Grande Prairie has to offer.
Being from the mortgage business for 17 years derived a mass knowledge and skill set for matching the perfect mortgage product to the consumer. No matter where she hung her mortgage hat. Daina made the move from one of Canada's big 5 banks to the independent mortgage broker space. The choice to join Canada's largest mortgage brokerage company in 2013 was a huge leap forward on how she could assist Canadians with all mortgage needs. This has given her the opportunity to not only offer clients a wider range of mortgage products, but also the ability to get to know my clients on a more personal level. Working for one bank meant only one lender was offered. Under the economic scale of Dominion Lending Centres she can now offer her clients options from ALL of Alberta's mortgage lenders. Consumers have more options than just banks. There are many amazing lender choices out there from banks to Credit Unions to Monolenders to Trust companies and even Private Mortgage Investment Companies (MIC's). More options simply means better service!
So ....there are generally two ways to get a mortgage in Canada: From one bank or from a licensed mortgage professional like Daina Stringer. Think of Daina as your personal shopper. A shopper not for Gucci but a shopper for Gucci quality and stature mortgage products and advice. Gucci costs more for a reason. Dominion Lending Centres costs less. If you are getting your mortgage from somewhere else you are probably paying too much.
While a bank only offers the products from their particular institution, licensed mortgage professionals send millions of dollars in mortgage business each year to Canada's largest banks, credit unions, trust companies, and financial institutions; offering their clients more choice, and access to hundreds of mortgage products! As a result, clients benefit from the trust, confidence, and security of knowing they are getting the best mortgage for their needs.
