About Iain Macfadyen

Thanks for visiting www.yourvancouvermortgagebroker.ca now I’ll tell you a little about myself. I’m a lifelong Vancouver resident. I grew up in the Westside neighbourhood of Dunbar and now reside in East Vancouver with my wife and two young children. I graduated from UBC in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and in 2007 I decided I would like to focus my skills in the mortgage area of real estate finance and obtained my sub broker license.

In 2008 I began working at First National Financial, an industry leading mortgage lender, who I still deal with frequently on my clients’ behalf. From there I became an in house underwriter for a large Verico brokerage, executing mortgage approvals on behalf of a devoted sales force. I underwrote a huge portfolio of transactions for three years, giving me ample experience with all types of residential mortgages and the challenges that come with it.

Next, I moved to Dominion Lending Centres – A Better Way (Now DLC Clear Trust Mortgage – A Better Way) and was the in house underwriter for most of 2014 managing the approval process on behalf of several independent brokers.

I am now focusing exclusively on my clients, old and new. I am using my extensive background in underwriting to provide the best results and client experience possible. I am dedicated to my clients’ ongoing and evolving mortgage needs and willing to be their most trusted and accessible resource.

I work with over 20 major lenders in BC

Here’s what some of my clients have to say:

Iain truly helped us understand the benefit of working with a Mortgage Broker. When it came time for us to renew our mortgage, Iain provided knowledgeable insights into the factors that were important for us to consider. He showed genuine care and commitment to securing a mortgage that was in our best interests, and did so with the utmost professionalism. Working with Iain made this whole process a breeze. He comes highly recommended!

We loved working with Iain on our first mortgage. We were new to the process and Iain made sure our close was as smooth and efficient as possible. He got us an excellent deal before we signed the purchase agreement, and then kept working to get us an even BETTER deal before financial close. I would (and do) recommend him to my friends.

Iain Macfayden was instrumental in helping me purchase my home. I signed for a pre-construction condo 3 years ago, but found myself in a challenging situation due to a change in circumstances when it came time to transfer. I had been declined by my bank and only had several weeks to find a mortgage or I would lose my down payment. Iain helped me through this stressful time and drew upon his contacts to find me a great mortgage in record time. He was incredibly persistent, on the ball, and transparent. I knew I could trust him from the beginning, and he was far more responsive than any of the other brokers I tried. I am extremely grateful for all that Iain did to help me and know that I could not have gotten such a good rate without him. I would most definitely recommend Iain to anyone.

Iain was a pleasure to work with.  He made the process smooth and possible, provided me with great assistance every step of the way.  Got me my mortgage without having to get a co-signer which was a big relief and help to me.  He is professional, knowledgeable and looking out for your best interest.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a mortgage. Thanks Iain
