Clients’ Testimonials

I feel very fortunate to work with Jacob when I was refinancing my condo in Vancouver. Being an American, I was not nearly as familiar with Canadian RE practice as I was with the US ones. Many things that I took for granted in the US RE market work totally differently in Canada, and many times the differences, when discovered aftermath, would have caused me a heart attack. Fortunately Jacob was always generous and genuine with his advice. Exactly what you need from a service professional, someone who has integrity, expertise, and honesty to help you not only with the task at hand but also with future plannings and strategies. I will enlist Jacob’s service again with a heart beat and I would recommend him to my friends and family without the slightest hesitation.

We all go through divest experiences throughout our lives. Working with Rinat and Jacob was one of the special and unique experiences that we will hold onto, as one of those who leaves a great feeling, and therefore we’ll highly recommend her.

In the last 2 years the rate we paid on our mortgage on our house was as much as double then what was available in the market. In order to change the situation and save our money we met with few experts, unfortunately none of them came up with the right solution for us.

A close friend referred us to Rinat. Although all conversation has been done from far, we did not feel that the distance caused any limitation. From the start we felt that someone , and this comes from a lady we got to recognize only by a photo attached to the signature of her e-mail.

The process was complex, many details were involved, but Rinat remembered every one of them as if it was her own mortgage file. On top of it the process was handled in a most punctuate fashion overcoming a time difference between the provinces.

We knew that Jacob was there with us along the way backing up the whole process, although we got to talk to him only on the last conference call that took 2 hours.

Thank you for a most professional and personal service, Irena and Shalva, Toronto

As first time home buyers we were intimidated about the mortgage, banks and the whole daunting process of getting the best rate with best terms and conditions. After all, this is the largest purchase of our lives and a lifelong commitment.

We had a couple of recommendations for mortgage brokers from friends, colleagues, and our realtor but after reviewing them we decided to go with Jacob and Rinat. Now we know that we couldn’t have made a better choice.

The first meeting with Jacob and Rinat was at their office in Richmond where they listened to us attentively and understood what we want. Then they provided us with various options that are suitable to our situation and needs.

All our communication with Jacob and Rinat afterwards was either via phone or email which is very convenient specially for busy people like ourselves. Both Jacob and Rinat were always contactable, responded almost immediately to all our enquiries, and provided valuable advice and guidance navigating the mine field that is mortgage loans! They also gave us advice and tips how to deal with our debts and other matters even though they were not related to the mortgage or house purchase.

When Jacob and Rinat sensed that the interest rates will go up, they immediately contacted us and in a very short time succeeded to secure the lowest fixed rate possible for 5 years! My bank was not able to match neither the rate nor the terms and conditions. The lowest my bank could offer us was 0.5% higher than what Jacob and Rinat secured, and the prepayment privileges were less friendly.

Our experience with Jacob and Rinat is very positive. They are very professional and very prompt in answering all questions. They respond very quickly to email and always answer the phone, even after hours. They explain everything thoroughly and clearly and provide valuable advice, guidance and tips. Several of our colleagues and friends have already used Jacob and Rinat’s services, and we have since recommended them to many more. We would definitely use Jacob and Rinat’s services again.

Jacob was recommended to me back in 2010 when I was in a financial crisis. I spoke to him for about 5 minutes on the phone when I just knew that everything was going to be alright. I had no clue how it was going to happen…I just let Jacob work his magic. He is extremely proactive, and works seemingly nonstop until he gets those amazing results. He has helped me out on two separate occasions and I would not hesitate in recommending him HIGHLY to anyone needing any kind of financial and mortgage assistance. What sets Jacob apart is the fact that working with him means building a relationship – he does not say goodbye after the contracts are signed…rather he stays by your side to see that you are successful in your financial future. To those in need..just dial Jacob – trust me…it will be the best, and last call you will every make

Hi Rinat, I just wanted to take a moment on behalf of Michael and myself to thank you so very much for the time and effort you put into our meeting on Wednesday night. It is very evident that both you and Jacob embrace your work with passion….and we feel extremely fortunate to have you guys in our life. Our circumstances are beginning to take a monumental turn for the better, and there is no doubt that the Sneg’s played a huge part in that. If we don’t see you before Christmas, I wish you and your family a magical holiday season. Barb Sleath

Very efficient and good Mortgage Broker

Denis Epiktetov

We decided to work with Rinat and Jacob because of a very warm recommendation coming from my best friend. I also heard some unique stories about the way they lead their business. After we met, I knew these are the people I’d like to work with: Honest, fair, aim to create clarity, Don’t care about their own gain and share and have only -me-the client in the center.

In one meeting with them they had it all planned out for me. They helped me structure my financial and occupational future so I’ll be able to achieve my goals in few months .I was willing to buy immediately, but they advised me to wait.

I loved the fact they would not rush me to close a deal and kept my interests in heart. They guided me to take the time and follow the plan they detailed, this way I’ll have an access to the best deal and most attractive mortgage packages.

When time was right, we put an offer and got it immediately accepted. Then started a race to remove subjects. Jacob and Rinat insisted on removing all conditions, by subject removal date (in few business days) so we’ll get a solid bank commitment for a mortgage.

The way they handled the process was beyond our expectations. They were available to us even at midnight; they did anything to secure the deal and improve the mortgage terms while working to satisfying all conditions. The most amazing thing was that that we ended up with a better mortgage deal then they initially promised.

I recall one of my conversation with Rinat. It was 10:00pm. She called and told me she thought a lot about our last discussion and would like to take a different route. She gave me an alternative plan to follow. I was amazed to see how she is invested in me. In 5 years from now, when time comes for renewal, There won’t be anyone else for me but Rinat and Jacob .They don’t work nine to five. They are fully committed to their clients. They really care.

Renu and I would like to thank you for making this house purchase a reality, we truly appreciate it. I got your letter and gift, that was very nice of you. We were impressed with your work and definitely look forward to working together in the future, thanks again!

Daniel Joseph

At the time of placing the Mezzuzah in my new home I want to formally thank you for your guidance over the years in giving me clarity in the obscure mortgage world; I of course thank you also for putting my new mortgage in place and helping me in the in and outs of the complex process of moving.

I thank you greatly for introducing me to my realtor Raphael Arazi. I had barely met him that he found the place I would eventually buy. He helped me tremendously in the negotiations to buy a wonderful apartment by Granville Island – and I can’t wait to have you visit me here. He’s a great guy and I consider him as new friend. Thanks again,

George
