Milan, Canada ,

I would never said that I’d find my broker here listening his helpful podcast

As a first time home buyer I was frustrated from the amount and quality of information about mortgage products available to 1st time home buyers. After finding Marko’s podcast I immediately realized that there are honest people willing to provide truthful information without seeking profits only to themselves. This didn’t stop here by listening podcast only. I decided to call Marko and asked him to be my mortgage broker. He provided great help and explained every annoying question I had (and I have them a lot). He was on top of everything- communication with lenders, realtors, notaries...thanks Marko again for making buying our first home such a fun and memorable experience. I would recommend you to anyone.

Mortgages and music

I came here for the mortgage advice but I’m also incredibly impressed by the music. A well put together podcast in bite sized episodes. Worth a listen for sure.
