Geri Janes | Mortgage Broker

Hi, I’m Geri. I’m here to help you through every step of the homebuying and mortgage processes – from determining the amount of mortgage for which you qualify to ensuring you have everything in place on closing day and beyond.

And if you aren’t ready to make a purchase just yet, I can help you build a budget, establish or repair your credit, and assist you on your road to homeownership.

I have a passion for numbers and helping people, so mortgage brokering enables me to enjoy the best of both these worlds.

I know what it’s like to raise a family and make adjustments along the way to help pay for such things as braces, tuition and renovations – whatever it takes to accommodate an evolving household.

I have been brokering for more than a decade and enjoy the privilege of helping people transition from the dream of homeownership to becoming a first-time homebuyer and then purchasing their next dream home. Each step is as rewarding as the next as I get to experience the emotions through the eyes of my clients and ensure their hard-earned money is working for them regardless of what life stage they have entered.

I live and work in Barrie, and love the small-town feel that it still projects while continuing to grow and thrive. I enjoy running into my clients while going about my day and staying in touch to revisit their needs as their lives continue to change.

Let me help take the stress out of homeownership. Answers to your questions are just a phone call or email away!

Mortgage Brokers

Provide Choice

Instead of working with a banker, who has access to a single product line, and represents the bank’s best interest, when you work with an independent mortgage broker, you gain access to several lending institutions, which gives you considerably more choice.

A mortgage broker will help you determine your mortgage needs, and match you with the best available mortgage product at no cost to you!

Home Purchase

If you are looking to purchase a property, understanding all the mortgage options available to you can seem overwhelming. That’s where I come in, I do this everyday, and I love it. I will help you make sense of all the numbers guide you through the process. 

Refinance

Are you looking to access some of the equity built up in your property? Maybe you want to consolidate some debts, start a new business, buy a vacation or investment property, or travel the world… regardless, let’s discuss all your mortgage options!

l

Renewal

If you are within six months of your mortgage renewal, or if your existing lender has sent you a renewal offer in the mail, I can give you a second opinion, and in most cases save you money. Never just sign the offer, there is always room to negotiate. 

Contact Me Anytime

Obviously there are a lot more services I can offer and a lot more information I can share with you. Consider this my invitation to contact me with your questions. My goal is to set you up with the right mortgage for you, then help you build a plan to get rid of it.
