I have made several inquiries about Home Loan and only Steve took so much time and effort to assist me. Being a first home buyer, there where so many things that didn't quite understand and Steve patiently explained even the smallest details. The customer service given was beyond expectation and didn't end on the contract signing. Everyone in Loan Choice is outstanding! Debra, Nicole, Elise and Steve you really helped make my dreams come true.

When you're looking for a home loan, you might work with an officer at a bank or other lending institution, or you might choose to work with a mortgage broker. The end result is the same-a new house, but the two types of jobs differ.


The loan officers at a bank, credit union or other lending institution are employees who work to sell and process mortgages and other loans originated by their employer. They often have a wide variety of loans types to draw from, but all originate from that specific lender.

The loan officer takes your application and works to find a loan product that suits your needs. If your personal credit is approved, the officer moves forward to process the home purchase transaction.


Mortgage brokers are professionals who are paid a fee by the Banks and other lending institutions to bring together lenders and borrowers. They usually work with dozens or even hundreds of lenders, not as employees, but as freelance agents.

Think of mortgage brokers as scouts. They find and evaluate home buyers, analysing each person's credit situation to determine which lender is the best fit for that person's needs. The broker submits the home buyer's application to one or more lenders in order to sell it, and works with the chosen lender until the loan closes. A good mortgage broker can find a lender for just about any type of credit.
