We have helped thousands of people just like you achieve their goals of homeownership, we have also been doing this long enough to see many of those people become mortgage free! We are with you from start to finish, even if that means the next 30 years!
We want your experience to be the best ever! From the latest market research to industry leading mortgage underwriting, to the best in communication both during the mortgage process and after, we are always investing in helping you be mortgage free, sooner. It’s hard for a single person to handle everything, we believe the team approach works really well and that you will benefit.

Head Honcho of Happiness
Helping people attain the goal of Homeownership is a fantastically rewarding part of Michael’s role as the Team Leader of the HomeHappy Team. With the extensive lending experience gained from his various levels of lending management with local Credit Unions and large Trust Companies, Michael found his niche in 1999 becoming an Independent Mortgage Broker and never looked back. “Offering only one company’s products didn’t sit well with me…Brokering meant I could use the entire market to find just the right lender for each client.”
Since starting the CME team in 2011 Michael has helped to lead the franchise to be the largest within Dominion Lending Centres…Canada’s largest Mortgage Originator. This means more opportunities for exclusive products for his HomeHappy clients as well as unique programs to help them pay off their mortgage faster.
