With 20 years as a law clerk performing title searches and closing real estate deals, Pat brings a wealth of experience not commonly found in most mortgage agents. Whether you are looking for a first, second or third mortgage, you will find Pat Lalonde's passion for her business and straightforward open approach very reassuring. Her mission to find the perfect residential mortgage fit for her clients, especially those in challenging circumstances, started with her roots in banking. All too often she saw good people being turned down by traditional banks simply because they couldn't fit the right qualification 'box' the banks created. Pat became a mortgage agent so that she could help these deserving people. In fact, Pat loves it when someone comes to her and says that the bank turned them down for a mortgage. She takes great pleasure in finding them the ideal solution that fits their financial needs.
