Elaine Peligren, Nanaimo Mortgage Broker
Elaine owned a very successful retail business for 17 years and, prior to that, was in the life insurance business for 14 years. Since 2008, Elaine has brought all her financial, business and life skills knowledge to her mortgage 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 dont have someone knowledgeable helping you through the process. 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.

Extremely Helpful, Professional, Knowledgable and Efficient
“During what was an exceedingly stressful time for me, Elaine was extremely helpful, professional, knowledgeable and efficient, right through to the end. Given I do not reside on Vancouver Island, Elaine accommodated my shift work and physical location always having my best interest in mind. To say she put my mind at ease through the whole process, is an understatement. I would use her again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend her to anybody looking to mortgage or refinance.”
