Elaine helped us with the mortgage for our first home this year, and was warm, patient and professional in walking us through the many aspects to consider in planning and applying for a mortgage. She was knowledgeable and made us feel confident in her. We couldn’t have asked for a better adviser and are happy to recommend her to our friends and family.
Thanks for everything, it really was a pleasure to work with Elaine! We’ve been recommending Elaine to anyone we know who is getting into their first homes like us ūüôā

Elaine Peligren was recommended to us by a well known Nanaimo realtor who had first-hand knowledge of Elaine’s success stories from feedback with his many clients who had dealt with her. ¬†We took his advice and asked her to help us with an extremely challenging mortgage application. ¬†She took on the challenge with enthusiasm and always gave us hope that she would succeed, knowing there were many hurdles to overcome. ¬†After a lot of very hard work and investigating every possible for us, she put together a mortgage that fit us and found ways to “make it happen”. ¬†To this day, I consider her to be a “mortgage miracle worker”! ¬†Even after all the dust had settled, and we were in our new home, three months later she suggested we come into her office and put together a letter asking CMHC to review our file and consider a rebate due to unusual circumstances in our situation. ¬†She helped us with the letter and we were successful in receiving that rebate. ¬†She leaves no stone unturned and does everything in a timely manner, even if¬† it means she has to work on the weekend or into the night. ¬†She is there to help, and we really felt as though she cared about us. ¬†We can’t thank her enough for holding our hands through a very scary process and making it all look so easy. ¬†We highly recommend her to anyone looking to find the very best service and mortgage deal out there. ¬†Her integrity and proficiency are second to none in the mortgage world. ¬†We consider to have found more than a great mortgage broker, but also a good friend in Elaine Peligren.

Elaine Peligren was recommended to us by our daughter in law. ¬†We had only dealt with banks before learning about Dominion Lending Centres Vanisle. ¬†I am self-employed, so it is difficult to obtain credit from traditional lending sources (banks, credit unions). ¬†We wanted to help our son and his wife to obtain a mortgage. ¬†Elaine was able to shop our mortgage even though our bank couldn’t. ¬†Elaine worked hard for us and helped us get a great rate. ¬†Elaine provided us with great service in a timely manner and got together with us in the evening and even on weekends to work around my son’s work schedule. ¬†She was well prepared and had all the documents organized. ¬†We recommend Elaine because of the highly personalized service she gave us.
