“My experience with Innovative Mortgage solutions was a dream. This was my first time ever buying a home and it was amidst planning a wedding as well. They were so organized and on the ball and made the process so easy. They also found me an interest rate 1.9% lower than the other competitor, so they have also saved me a lot of money in the long run. I would use them again indefinitely!”
Kris and Cathy were extremely helpful, thorough and patient with my fiance and I in our journey through finding the mortgage solution for our first home. Their quick communication made it easy to build trust in their services. I would highly recommend Innovative Mortgage Solutions!

“Kris was recommended to me through a friend who bought a condo a few months prior to my purchase. All I can say is fantastic service! Kris took the time to walk me through every step of getting a mortgage. He explained the different types of premiums and insurance, walked me through my credit score, explained the different types of mortgages available, etc etc. He also took the time to figure out my short, medium and long terms plans to determine the best mortgage for me. Superior service both before and after I obtained my mortgage and went with his services. FAR better service AND rates than I received from my bank of 25 yrs. His team is very helpful and take the time to answer any question you may have. I would absolutely recommend Kris and his team to anyone looking for a mortgage.”

They made each experience a positive one and took away the stress of dealing with various financial institutions and confusing paperwork that we would normally have to do on our own. The staff is very efficient and helpful. We would recommend, and have recommended, Innovative to anyone in the future.”
“Had a fantastic experience with innovative. Mikes name was given to us by our real estate agent, and we couldn’t be happier. We walked through our house on Saturday night, emailed Mike and he came in on a Sunday morning to see us and our offer was accepted Sunday afternoon. Without his flexibility we would have missed out on our dream house.”
"Kris and Paulette at Innovative Mortgage Solutions are always great to deal with.

I find innovative mortgage solutions professional ,friendly and very helpful . I actually go there for all of my financial questions and needs . I wouldn’t go anywhere else .
Great rates. Very helpful. I needed the mortgage done quickly and they did it. I worked with Joy Lajeunesse and am completely happy.
Kris was great to deal with. I’m super glad that we chose to go with IMS. They made The process Of buying a home so easy and really helped set our minds at ease about a lot going in.
Kris really went to bat for us getting our mortgage approval. We originally went direct to TD and they denied us for what we were after. He was always available when I had questions (and there were a lot!)
Brieanne worked hard to get me my mortgage. It was not an easy task I am sure.
Always available to answer calls, great to work with
Great team! I have used Innovative more than once and they have always made my life easy and found me excellent rates
They’re easy to deal with and offer many solutions. Very satisfied, knowledgeable and nice people. Many thanks Innovative Mortgage Solutions! I got my new house with the best interest rate in just 1 month.
What I thought was impossible suddenly seemed possible with Chyanne! I accepted a job in another province, with a very short timeline to move. Chyanne walked us through the whole process, took care of everything. We could not have made the purchase of our first home possible without her! She is simply fantastic!!!
Kris and his team were very helpful in helping us with our mortgages. They were thorough and made the process smooth.
Mike and his assistant, Candice, were absolutely great to work with! They were very knowledgeable, personable, efficient and communicated with us every step of the way in order to get our financing approved. They exceed our expectations and we will use them again for any future financial needs. Thanks again to you both!
The experience at Innovative Mortgage Solutions always exceeds my expectations. Dealing with your staff makes our mortgage management easy.
Kris was fantastic to deal with.
After meeting Michael 3 years for our vacation property financing, there was no one I would go to than Michael and his great team for our other financing requirements.
As a first time home buyer, the process can be overwhelming. Deedee made the process simple, yet still ensured I knew all the options available to me. Deedee was quick to return calls/texts and it was apparent she did everything she could to find the best mortgage to suit my lifestyle. I was able to trust the process in one of my larger life-decisions; I am very thankful for that.
While working with Kris I was thoroughly impressed by his diligence, timeliness and consistent professionalism. Not only does Kris and his brokerage provide an exceptional service but they also deliver a competitive product. I received a better mortgage agreement through Kris than I was able to secure with my bank of 15 years. His services will be highly recommended.
They are a big help of us.
Great people, wonderful customer service. I just can’t believe how smooth everything went. Will refer them to everyone who wants their mortgage done.
I truly believe that we would not be in our new house had it not been for DeeDee and everything she did for us.
Kris, Joy and Paulette went above and beyond my expectations; they are so good that they managed to negotiate a better rate for my mortgage even after I’ve got the contract signed with my lawyer. I highly recommend innovative for those who need a mortgage broker.
Very worthwhile experience. Very helpful and approachable. They were easy to schedule with numerous times and made the process extremely simple.
Very helpful through the whole process. If we had a question it was answered in full and quickly. Also provided any follow up required very efficiently.
Great experience, thanks for everything!
Quick and easy to get mortgage. Friendly people to work with. Thanks!
I am very happy with Innovative Mortgage Solutions, you were recommended and I’m glad to have experienced the great courteous service and would recommend you to someone else.
The agent who watched over my mortgage application (Paulette Vroman) was very thorough on her work dealing with me and other stakeholders (mortgage underwriter, mortgage specialist, lawyer and realtor) and courteous throughout the whole process in making sure it was correctly processed.
Joy was such a pleasure to work with, she was very professional and very accommodating - I would recommend her to anyone. She literally helped a dream come true for me!
Joy and Paulette were great. They went over and above my expectations.
The staff at innovative were always willing to help and went the extra mile to make sure that all our needs were met.
Great service and great people to work with.
Michael and his team are true professionals, having worked with Innovative now for many years we have seen great benefit and return on the advice and direction we have been given.
Again, they were fantastic. All of the people that helped with our mortgage were all very very helpful. Thank you so much.
Awesome communication and rates. Good information.
I can only say that anyone needs a mortgage should see Brieanne Doucet. She is excellent, supportive and always there whenever I needed her help.
Mike and team were and have always been awesome. They cared about my needs and gave me sound advice to where my family was at.
I always feel that Kris, Paulette, and anyone I’ve dealt with work hard and go the extra mile. Highly recommended to anyone considering engaging with Innovative Mortgage Solutions.
Quick mortgage approval process and I got a great rate! Michael, Paulette and his team worked hard in a tight timeline to organize my mortgage approval. I was extremely happy with the customer service they provided and they will always willing to answer questions and educate me on the process along the way.
Everything went smoothly and I was well taken care of as a first time home buyer!
Fantastic! As soon as me and my fiance stepped in the doors we felt welcomed and respected. We were well treated and felt like we were getting the best deal.
Our experience was nothing but the best, Mike and Paulette are the real deal, would not think twice about recommending or going back to Innovative. Thank you for everything!
Excellent experience and service. I would recommend Innovative Mortgage Solutions to friends.
Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure dealing with Innovative.
Michael has been extremely helpful for me in a short time line and has helped out in the past as well with great results.
Friendly, easy to talk to, not intimidating at all. Highly recommend Innovative Mortgage Solutions.
They were very polite and they made the process of getting a mortgage a breeze.
Once again I was extremely happy with the service I received from Innovative. I cannot express how impressed I am with the knowledgeable staff and their overall attitude to finding a mortgage solution for me!
Quick and professional. The Innovative Mortgage Solutions TEAM worked together to get the job done for us when we needed a quick cash injection for our business. They quickly found us the deal we needed to move things to the next level. Once we were approved, the lawyers involved (our choice, not their recommendation, unfortunately) dragged their butts and we were growing impatient. Innovative stepped in, connected the dots where needed and ensured the fastest completion and funding possible, given the circumstance. I only wish I had gone with their referrals for everything instead of using our own service providers to try to close the deal Would use this crew again in a heartbeat. Nice coffee mugs too!
We were really pleased with the rate that Innovative Mortgage was able to find for us. We really appreciated the time and effort that Innovative Mortgage put into making sure all our questions were answered and that we were comfortable along the way.
Everyone was very kind and great to work with.
Kris was helpful, affirming and focused on my needs in setting things up. He saw advantages I did not know about and set them up. It felt like having a knowledgeable friend in the business. The support staff was also friendly, supportive and efficient. If only the actual banks and lawyers were half as on the ball!
[Innovative Mortgage Solutions] made the whole experience less stressful. We have dealt with Innovative a couple of times now and they always exceed our expectations
We greatly appreciated how helpful and attentive the team was on helping us get the best mortgage rates.
Everybody at Innovative did a great job handling our mortgage application process. Kris got us a mortgage quickly and at a great rate. We couldn’t be happier with how things worked out. Thank you!
Everyone at the company was so helpful and went out of there way to make what turned out to be a difficult process as easy as they could.
It was excellent, the staff were so helpful! they were with me throughout the process.
We are very thankful that we got to meet you and for all your help.
I will never go to a bank again for a mortgage. Mike and his team are awesome.
We loved working with the team at Innovative. We appreciated your thoroughness and your willingness to jump in and problem solve when things were close to the wire. :)
Kris was active & professional.
[Innovative] answered all of our questions, provided us very helpful information and advice in a timely manner. Really great experience for us as we are first time home buyers!
Paulette was amazing! I was a first time home buyer and had a lot of questions, to which Paulette answered them quickly and professionally. Thank you Innovative team!
I liked being able to give all that work to someone who knew what to do. Thanks Kris.
After our initial meeting, we felt much more relaxed and excited about the process. Things moved really quickly for us as we found our home much quicker than expected, and Innovative Mortgage Solutions kept up with us! Super friendly and professional. It was a pleasure to work with your team!
Brieanne is very knowledgeable. I had a ton of questions and she was so patient with me. Made the whole process seamless. We wouldn’t have been able to make our dream of owning a rental property happen without her.
Mike’s company is perfectly named. The options he presented to me for my financing needs were incredibly creative, and his whole team is perfectly professional.
Michael was very resourceful and was always available to answer our many questions. Thanks to the entire team for helping us in financing our first home!
