About Us

There are generally two ways to get a mortgage in Canada: From a bank or from a licensed mortgage professional.

While a bank only offers the products from their particular institution, licensed mortgage professionals send billions of dollars in mortgage business each year to Canada’s largest banks, credit unions, trust companies, and financial institutions; offering their clients more choice, and access to hundreds of mortgage products! As a result, clients benefit from the trust, confidence, and security of knowing they are getting the best mortgage for their needs.

Whether you’re purchasing a home for the first time, taking out equity from your home for investment or pleasure, or your current mortgage is simply up for renewal, it’s important that you are making an educated buying decision with professional unbiased advice.

More importantly you want to make sure your MORTGAGE fits your FINANCIAL PLAN. At BiggerPiggyBank.com we believe that all aspects of your financial life have to work together to meet your individual needs and goals. This is what makes us different – a comprehensive evaluation of your overall financial situation to ensure you have the right mortgage with access to appropriate, relevant financial planning resources and products.
