Steven Brouwer, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
After attending university in Michigan, I settled down in Chilliwack and am happily married to Judy. We have two beautiful daughters and are active in many associations and sports groups in the Fraser Valley. After a successful career working in Vancouver, I have learned a few creeds for success that I try to follow:
- Under promise and over deliver
- Work hard and success will follow
- Build solid relationships
I have been fortunate enough to have had excellent training, worked for firms with ethics and I get great joy out of helping people.
Striving for success, working hard, building solid relationships and thinking outside the box have brought me a very rewarding life experience.

Dan Ashton, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
From a young age, I was an entrepreneur and had an interest in real estate. I owned my first home by the time I was 20 and had tenants helping to pay my mortgage.
I worked at various positions within different cities for over 10 years. After getting married and having our 1st child, I realized that I wanted to be around home more. So in 2005 I decided to move on and become a mortgage broker. I love helping clients get into their first home, seeing investors have successful rental properties, and refinancing mortgages to help families to get more cash flow to make life easier. My strong ethical beliefs at working hard and getting the best mortgage product for my clients helps get many clients out of tough situations and also helps get the best mortgage product for them. I strongly believe in getting the best product for each client. The biggest satisfaction that I get is when my past clients call me for another mortgage or when they refer their friends and family to me.
Ray Sprangers, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
After graduating from UBC in 2002 I worked as a computer programmer for both a start up company and as an independent contractor. Looking to move into something more dynamic where I could help and work with people on a day to day basis, I became a mortgage broker. I have had the pleasure of doing so since 2006 serving clients all over the Fraser Valley, Vancouver and Canada. In all areas of my life I believe that something is only worth doing if it is done right and with integrity, including helping someone obtain the best mortgage for their needs at the lowest rate available. Through hard work and years of experience I make the mortgage process as painless and easy to understand as possible for all my clients.

Donna Phillips, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
After enjoying a career in the ballroom dance business in both Canada and the U.S., I settled back into British Columbia, Canada, and then got my administrative business degree. I then joined Remax in 1987 in the Kelowna area, and enjoyed 13 years as a very active real estate agent.
I enjoyed that career immensely; but found that the one part of the entire real estate process that was very often the most stressful to the clients was "the financing stage". This was the #1 determinant of success or failure in most cases. So in 1998 I decided to specialize in that area of the real estate, and became a mortgage broker.
I now work to assist clients in getting through that sometimes stressful and sometimes very difficult part of the process of buying a home - the financing. One of the things that I like best about being a mortgage broker is that my success is directly related to the successful outcome achieved for my clients. That is a great motivator, and leads to a "win-win" outcome.
Rob Hein, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
Finding a mortgage broker is a relatively easy task. The hard part, however, is finding one that can provide home loan programs that suit your personal needs. You need a mortgage broker you can trust to act in your best interest. With approximately 40 exclusive lending sources, I am the final word in the mortgage industry.
I understand how critical it is to get professional direction during this very important and often stressful decision-making process. I like to pride myself on customer satisfaction by earning your relationship and by fulfilling your financial needs. It is for this very reason I thrive in such a vast, unforgiving industry. As someone that earns a majority of business by referral, I believe this is testimony to how I conduct my work. Other companies do not establish this type of relationship and are only concerned about remembering your account number.
I want you to be my client for life. By offering the best possible rates with minimal cost to you, I want to insure that you will return for my services. It is my goal to keep you informed every step of the way and to provide you with the confidence and assurance you need in knowing that your transaction is being processed professionally and expeditiously.
Chad Bruneski, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
I enjoy observing my kids. I love their curiosity… their thirst to understand things (or ask annoying questions)… their belief that there's always a solution… and sometimes the solutions are amusing. I've learned that there's a lot of value in approaching life, and especially business, with that same perspective. I'm at my innovative best when I can look at a problem with curiosity and wonder, and belief that there is a solution to be found. It's with this passion that I approach working for my clients to find them the best mortgage solution.
My wife, Sarah, and I have lived in Chilliwack with our three children for over four years and have found it to be home with great friends and a loving church family. After years in the Pharmaceutical industry and Management, I've learned a lot about taking care of my clients needs first, finding efficient solutions to obstacles, and doing it with a lot of joy. I get that from my kids too!

Sunil Pala, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
Mortgage brokering is not simply my career, but a true passion as well, as it enables me to meet amazing people and help make their dreams of homeownership a reality. I began my mortgage broker licensing process after my bank gave me a tough time in approving a purchase for one of my investment properties. I decided at that point that there had to be an easier way for Canadians to obtain mortgage financing.
I take great pride in staying on top of new mortgage products and rules, so I can confidently walk all of my clients through every step of the mortgage financing process – whether they’re a first-time homebuyer, purchasing a new home, refinancing an existing mortgage to free up money or renewing a current mortgage.
I have one simple goal in mind – to provide every one of my past and future clients with unbelievable service and the very best mortgage options to meet their unique needs.
Born and raised in Fiji, where I earned diplomas in both accounting and business, I also received a mathematics diploma in the United Kingdom. In addition to English, I am also fluent in Hindi and Gujarati.

Ahmed Buksh, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
Don Freeman, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
Hi, my name is Don Freeman and I would like to take a minute to let you know who is working for you as your mortgage broker and what I bring to the table.
My past experience has come from a number of different areas, everything from selling R.V.’s and manufactured homes in my early and mid 20’s, to owning a party promotion business, an art store and an adventure company. As time has gone on one of my biggest hurdles was dealing with our banking system and the mystery behind why and how they make their decisions. As you know they either love you or hate you and even when they love you, you have to be careful that you are getting the best deal for you and not the best deal for the bank. When they hate you there is rarely a good explanation of where things are going wrong and even rarer is the advice on how to fix it.
After being self employed for a number of years I decided I wanted to try something completely different and wanted to do something where I could help people and make a living doing it. It was on that note that I applied at CIBC and started my banking experience. As they say, if you can’t beat them join them.
Working for CIBC I was promoted fairly quickly as I was strong at building relationships with clients, problem solving and growing business in positions they had been previously having trouble with. I had worked my way up to Business Advisor, a position where I had a portfolio of only self employed people. I then realized I wanted to expand my experience and education to the credit union side of things to see what the differences where and how they were set up as opposed to the bank. Envision Credit Union was anxious to bring me on board.
I worked at Envision as a Personal Account Manager working on mortgages and loans and spent enough time there to take their commercial lending and mortgage courses. Through doing this I then realized that what I really wanted to do was become a broker. I wanted the freedom to help people as much as possible and I wanted the options that would come with that freedom. Now if one bank doesn’t like the mortgage I’m working on I have a vast amount of other banks and mortgage companies I can approach. These other banks and mortgage companies may have different guidelines because as many of us know, every bank has its own set of rules.
I am now on my fifth year of brokering with over 7 years of mortgage experience and I have never looked back! Due to my past experiences I now come with the internal knowledge of the banks and credit unions and the flexibility and understanding of how to make even the hardest deals make sense. Not to mention in most cases, the exception being private mortgages, I am a FREE service. The bank pays me! Not only that, but I am paid on the volume and the amount of the mortgage, not on the interest rate. Because of this, I am always looking for the BEST products and interest rates to suit your needs.
I appreciate you taking the time to read through my little story and appreciate you choosing me to be your mortgage broker now, and in the future. Unlike a banker who may change positions or banks, I am always your mortgage broker, and I always work for you and your best interests!

Geoff Lee, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
"Allow Me To Introduce Myself."
I have been investing in real estate for a number of years. It really is my true interest and passion. I’m in business for the sole purpose of giving you new options to help with the financing or refinancing of your home or business. In a challenging economy, we all need to be willing to keep our eyes and ears open to new opportunities that can improve our situation and position ourselves better for the stronger times soon to come.
I don’t know if you’re happy or royally aggravated with the current level of service and amount of helpful ideas you get from your existing finance providers, such as banks or other mortgage brokers. I can tell you that I do things very differently than most.
First of all, I take great pride in a business many people take for granted. I have helped hundreds of people like you over the last 22 years. I’m very disciplined in the way I manage my team and my company. You can actually count on me, whether it’s to give you a good laugh when you need one or take extreme care of you and our family. When you call me (at 778-552-3489) I answer the phone myself, and I guarantee you solid advice and attention to fine details when you need financing.
Second, I’ve got 2 great kids and a terrific wife. They all eat. Not long from now, my kids are going to attend college or university, if I have any say in it. I need a successful and thriving business, as do you. But that can’t happen unless I absolutely “wow” you with my courtesy, professionalism, knowledge and customer care.
Third, I actively participate in the local professional community and keep up with the latest news and trends in the industry. I am a regular the Wealthy Investors’ Network and a member of the Mortgage Broker Association of British Columbia. Doing so will directly benefit you, as I pass along to you the knowledge I gain and use it to best serve my clients.
When you work with me, you can also be assured that you’re dealing with someone who is considerate of others and constantly seeks opportunities to help those in need. I am honored to be a member of the Board of Directors for the IMANI Orphan Care Foundation, which my wife and I helped found. IMANI provides sponsorship and support for orphaned and needy children in Kenya. I believe that with business success comes social responsibility; true success means helping those in need.
In my business, I prefer opportunities where I can work with people for many years into the future. Not only to help you improve in the areas of home ownership and finances but also to turn clients into friends for life. I have a dramatically different attitude about this compared to any other finance company you’ve dealt with.
I work quickly and negotiate hard to get you a fast “yes” at the sharpest rate – guaranteed!
If we decide to explore doing business together regarding your mortgage and I don’t get you a fast “YES” within days, not weeks, and at the sharpest rates available at the time, then I will give you a $500 Gas Card. Hopefully that shows you just how serious and confident I am in my ability to deliver for you!

Tania Vermeer, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
Hello! I am born and raised in Chilliwack, and have two incredible daughters who are my inspiration and motivation.
I began my career in the financial industry in 1992 with one of the world's largest global banks. I eagerly worked my way into the Personal Financial Services department, earning my PFS Counselling Designation. While I was intrigued by the investments side, my heart was with the lending aspect, specifically mortgages and how a good and appropriate product can have such a significant positive effect on a client's life! One major downside, however, was the limitations placed on me due to being employed by only one lender, and being forced to work within the typical 'flavour of the month' philosophy. If my client didn't fit the current box, I was unable to help. I am so excited to have dozens of lenders to select from, from big banks to private lenders, all competing for your mortgage, and to truly work for my client; not an institution! Whether purchasing a home, vacation or revenue property, or refinancing to increase your cash flow, or renewing to improve your current mortgage terms, or even if you require commercial equipment leasing products, I genuinely look forward to meeting you and building a gratifying and enduring relationship.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me, please allow me to get to know you!

Perry Sherstobetoff, Licensed Mortgage Specialist
I have worked in all aspects of finance for the past 25 years, with a primary focus on lending.
I have enjoyed roles in both the banking and private sectors. As a career lender, I have enjoyed many positions which have included, Branch Management, Professional and Small Business Account Manager, Area Business Manager and Sr. Financial Advisor. My lending experience is not just that of major banks but also; Automotive, Recreational, and non-traditional lending providers.
I specialize in lending to people with perfect credit and those who have had a few bumps in the road. No two customers are alike and neither is their credit or financial situation. I enjoy the challenge of “making the numbers work” with the focus on not just the best rate but the best structured deal. If you have perfect credit, I’m sure to get you the perfectly structured mortgage, with the best rate that you’ve been searching for. But, what if you’re the self- employed, just out of school, new business owner, who is recently divorced, newly engaged, with not so perfect credit and is thinking of retiring next year?......….Call me, (604.316.1030) we’ll talk.
Remember; it’s not just what you know, but who you know! I’m the person who is willing to work hard to become “your insider”, the “guy to know”, or that long time “family friend” in the business. My customers are the ones that get that special deal, consideration or approval that others often don’t. I teach my customers how to become that “savvy” borrower, that customer that always seems to gain the upper hand when dealing with the big lending institutions. Now that you have found that non-bias “insider” give me a call and we will get down to business.
A little more about me.I was raised on a farm in the East Kootenays, (Creston B.C.), by parents with a very strong work ethic and very proud of it. I received my education while working my way through the banking system and lived in various parts of the province while doing so. I have lived in the Thompson-Okanagan, Central Kootenays, Vancouver Island, Central Okanagan and finally the Fraser Valley for the past 25 years. My wife and I have been blessed with two wonderful children. I am an active board member in my sons’ school, our church and various other organizations.
