About Colleen

My name is Colleen Saunders and I have 30 years experience in the Financial Industry.  After enjoying a successful career and a variety of roles with The Royal Bank, I left the corporate world to establish my own business.  Helping people with their finances was the one passion that had given me the greatest professional satisfaction.

I have a great sense of humour, very professional and treat everyone with respect.  I like the direct route and don’t like to waste people’s time.  All of these qualities help me be fabulous in my career as a Mortgage Professional.

I work with quite an array of referrals from my clients.  Some recent referrals included: a young couple purchasing their first home, a client in the police force purchasing a cottage, a wealthy business owner that purchased a home with the intention of tearing down the existing structure and I can arrange the construction financing when the time comes.  I also assist clients that have lost their job, faced an illness or suffered the death of a spouse and work with them in a confidential compassionate manner to help them overcome their financial stresses.  One client I worked with recently encountered financial difficulties due to his wife’s battle with cancer and loss of her income.  We consolidated everything and freed up $900 per month.

Part of the role of a good mortgage professional is to look at the big picture and determine what is best for the client and is not just there for the commission.  It is all about giving alternatives for the client to find their best solution.

My personal and professional goal is to be my client’s lender for life.  There is nothing more rewarding than when a referral calls and states a friend told them that I was the only person that they should speak to about their mortgage requirements.

It is imperative that my clients have a great experience when arranging their mortgage because the greatest compliment is the referral of family and friends.   I write a weekly educational newsletter with industry info such as rate changes or changes in legislation or articles of interest.
