    Brian and I followed up via phone call, where he: - Discussed RateHub, - Discussed the background of CanWise Financial - Discussed his own history and local presence in my area. - Discussed mortgage options for my family, - And concluded with documents needed to proceed along with a follow up email. Overall this bolstered my confidence both in RateHub and CanWise. I'm looking forward to closing on this and establishing a new mortage w/ CanWise!

    Not very polite and intimidating to talk to

  • Neil Jones
    June 22, 2020

    Brian was very good and knowledgeable but did have a touch of sales guy language which can be slightly off-putting. It’s a tough balance between being a professional advisor and being a sales guy. He was very close to being that professional advisor but slipped into sales guy once or twice in the phone call.

    February 19, 2020

    False advertising and this is not on the representative you made me pick a name and that is not fair. This is on the company as a whole and how you wish to portray yourself. Please put some specifications of the rates you offer without having someone calling you and emailing you. When you put rates up just say what the conditions are. This is bad marketing and tactics!!! All you have accomplished is 0% trust! Was it really worth advertising 2.44% when you could have gotten 2.74% if you would have been honest and upfront?

  • Trinda
    April 25, 2019

    I was just shopping around for mortgage renewal and it is the best rate given. The reason I didn’t go for it is because I only have two weeks time frame and also I have home line and that portion is borrowed for a family member so kind of complicated. I think next renewal I will consider to go with it .
