Why Your Lifestyle Mortgage and Not Your Local Bank?
Why us and not your local bank?
When you walk into a branch, the financial services manager or advisor who will process the application is not only doing mortgages.
He or she sells other financial products/services as well, your bank accounts setup, TFSA, investments, RRSP, etc.
If you go back to your branch after 3-5 years to renew your mortgage, do not be surprised if you find the person you dealt with last time has been posted elsewhere.
The simple reason behind this is that the Bank wants you to have a business relationship with the brand (the Bank), and not it's employees. That way no matter who is there to assist you, you will be dealing with the brand.
So when you get a less than stellar service, your questions and calls are not answered on time, or something detrimental occurs to your application, do not be surprised or even shocked.
Your advisor at the bank is helping many others, wearing many different hats on a daily basis, and does not have a personal stake in your file.
To this extent, his or her conduct may even be forgive-able.
They are human beings whose time and energy is stretched to the maximum to ensure the bank is getting it's money's worth.
Although an extreme example: It is like asking your basement renovation guy to do the electrical and plumbing work as well, just because he has some idea about those kind of work. Well, if the house burns down or your basement ends up flooding, who will pay for it? You will.
This is where a mortgage agent or broker is different, and vital to your long-term mortgage success!
