Elaine owned a very successful retail business for 17 years and, prior to that, was in the life insurance business for 14 years. For the last 8 years, Elaine has brought all her financial, business and life skills knowledge to her clients.
Here are some ways Elaine has helped her clients:
Explain how credit works: Many people don’t understand how credit works. Elaine loves explaining how credit works, especially to young clients, first-time home buyers or clients who have had serious credit problems such as bankruptcy or consumer proposals.
Help first-time home buyers understand the mortgage process: Buying your first home is a huge step and is always an emotional experience: excitement, fear, confusion, stress and joy can all be part of the experience. A seasoned professional like Elaine can walk first-time home buyers through the entire process, which helps reduce the fear, stress and confusion experienced by many first-time home buyers. Elaine creates a comfortable, friendly environment where it is comfortable to ask any questions, and she takes the time to explain everything associated with the mortgage process so first-time home buyers can have a positive experience and enjoy this major life milestone!
Personalized service: One benefit many people appreciate about working with Elaine is the flexibility and personalized services she is able to offer. From evening and weekend appointments to meeting clients in their own homes, Elaine works hard to accommodate the unique needs of each client.
Find the right mortgage for each client: Each client has different needs. Everyone wants to get the lowest possible mortgage rate, but sometimes the lowest rates can end up costing you more money! Elaine will explain all the options to help you make informed decisions and find the mortgage that is the right fit for your unique needs.
Commercial mortgages: Commercial mortgages are generally much more complicated than residential mortgages. It is important to have a reliable broker like Elaine who is experienced with commercial mortgages. If you own a business or are opening a new business, come see how Elaine can help.
Help repair credit blemishes: Sometimes life happens: divorce, sickness, etc. can lead to financial challenges that may result in a poor credit score. Elaine can help you turn your credit score around and bring it up to a level where you will be able to qualify for regular financing. In the meantime, if necessary, Elaine can help you find financing from one of the private lenders she works with.
Construction mortgages: Do you dream of building your own home? Construction loans are complicated, and you need a broker who understands all aspects of the process. Building your dream home can quickly turn into a nightmare if you choose the wrong mortgage broker. Elaine has done many construction loans and has personal experience with building homes and working with contractors. If you are going to build your own home, you really need someone like Elaine who can help you navigate the process from beginning to end.

Testimonials for Elaine:
“Wish I had Known All this Before”
I wish I had known all of this before. If someone had told me all of this 20 years ago, it would have changed my life.
“Warm, Patient and Professional”
Elaine helped us with the mortgage for our first home this year and was warm, patient and professional in walking us through the many aspects to consider in planning and applying for a mortgage. She was knowledgeable, and we felt confident in her care. We couldn’t have asked for a better adviser and are happy to recommend her to our friends and family.
Thanks again for everything; it really was a pleasure to work with you!
We’ve been recommending you to anyone we know who is getting into their first home like us.
- Laura and Steve
“Well-Prepared… Personalized Service”
Elaine Peligren was recommended to us by our daughter-in-law. We had only dealt with banks before learning about Dominion Lending Centres Vanisle. I was self-employed, so it was difficult to obtain credit from traditional lending sources (banks, credit unions). We wanted to help our son and his wife to obtain a mortgage. Elaine was able to shop our mortgage, even though our bank couldn’t. Elaine worked hard for us and helped us get a great rate. Elaine provided us with great service in a timely manner and got together with us in the evening and even on weekends to work around my son’s work schedule. She was well prepared and had all the documents organized. We recommend Elaine because of the highly personalized service she gave us.
- Gerhard and Heidi
“Took the Time to Explain Things”
Elaine took the time to explain things in a way we could understand, which no bank had ever done for us in the past. We were most impressed not only with her professionalism and knowledge, but also at her perseverance in finding us the best mortgage rate available, saving us considerable time and money.
- Caroline and Dennis
“Thanks for Your Dedication and Enthusiasm”
Thanks, Elaine, for your dedication and enthusiasm in assisting S.I.I. with all our financial needs in making something big even better.
“Elaine Worked Miracles; Spent Many Hours”
We had always used banks for our mortgages and felt that the banks were very impersonal and quite uninterested in offering us much in the way of options that would benefit us. When someone suggested that we should see Elaine Peligren of Dominion Lending Centres Vanisle because she could get us a better deal, we decided to see for ourselves. That was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Ours was a complicated mortgage and we weren’t sure it could work. Elaine worked miracles and spent many hours preparing different scenarios so that we could decide which was the best for us. There was a time crunch as well, but because Elaine went above and beyond for us, we now have the home of our dreams with a great rate
on our mortgage. We recommend Elaine and her company to everyone – you can’t do any better!
- George and Janice
“Best Mortgage Broker We Could Ever Have”
Elaine is the best mortgage broker we could ever have. She treated us like family, and we felt that we were taken care of. She explained everything to me as to how credit works and managed to get us our new home that we absolutely love. We weren’t just a $ sign to her like the banks do, and she actually offered a much lower interest rate. She has an awesome smile and a great personality. No matter what circumstances came up, she pulled through for us. We thank Elaine with all of our hearts
for making our dreams come true; I personally believe that we couldn’t have done it without her. We will definitely
recommend her to everybody who wants to meet and work with someone who will make getting a mortgage a pleasant and
exciting experience and also meet a wonderful friend... but for us she was like FAMILY. Thanks, Elaine and everybody at Dominion Lending, for all the hard work and for making our homeownership a very wonderful experience.
