“We are very fortunate to have connected with Derek, a recommendation by our realtor. He’s incredibly communicative, clear, and prompt – we received a reply to all of our answers within a day, sometimes within hours. Being new to purchasing a home, there’s a lot of intimidating steps, and things that could go sideways, so it was important for us to rely on people like Derek who could guide us through everything. At the end of it all, we’re now in a home where we pay less then renting in a big city!”

With my husband and I being self-employed, I had thought our potential property purchase would not be possible.  I have no idea how he did it, but Derek Diener is amazing!  If anyone is able to find a mortgage solution it would be Derek and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

“We had a dream to build a new house but were unaware how difficult it can be to put financing together as big banks has strict lending guide lines for owner builder. Dealing with big banks was quite challenging for us but with Derek’s assistance we were able to secure financing at very low rate before we commenced construction of our dream house. Derek was always there and return our calls when we had an issue, from start to finish the building process. Thank you Derek, we would not be able to finish our dream home without your help and great effort.”

“Buying a home is hectic enough without having to shop around for the best rates and financing.  With Derek on my team he took care of all my financial requirements and paperwork so I could concentrate on all the other steps that go into purchasing a home.  Derek was able to get me the best rates and terms possible that I couldn’t seem get on my own.
Derek is local to the community and therefore was able to provide me a high level of personal service.”
