Why Brokers Have Winnipeg’s Best Mortgages

winnipeg mortgage brokers vs banks infographic

There is a lot of confusion between what a mortgage broker in Winnipeg does versus going to the traditional big banks. Essentially, we offer the same service, but as a mortgage broker, I have the ability to shop around to get you the best rate. I help find the best rate even if it happens to be from a bank. I negotiate on your behalf with dozens and dozens of lenders to help get you the best rate.

  • Find you the best rates by negotiating with dozens of different lenders.
  • Experts in mortgages, doing all the leg work and research so you don’t have to.
  • Have access to specialized lenders ie. bad credit, self employed, new to Canada mortgages, etc.


  • Only have one set rate to offer you, which is usually a much higher rate.
  • Strict rules in place for approving mortgages.
  • Set office hours, not always available when needed.
  • Often have rotation staff with lack of experience in the mortgage industry.


A mortgage rate of even a quarter percent less can save you thousands of dollars.

Works independently and puts your best interests first.
