    Lorne was available to me for small or large questions. He even helped me through some questions while on vacation! He goes above and beyond.

    Clear and helpful updates on our loan and answered every question we had no matter the time of day. He even took time out of his personal vacation to answer our questions during the loan process

    If I could give Lorne 10 stars and excellent he's most deserving. He is a fierce force to advocate for his clients and literally bust through barriers successfully. Where most lenders see problems, he sees opportunities and uses those through critical problem causing skills to reach the end resolution. I'm very impressed with his abilities to get a tough deal done, and on time. Hes a true star professional.

    Lorne was able to offer clear advice and put the pieces of our financial situation together in a way that other lenders were not to get us the financing we needed.
