A Common Sense Approach to Lending

No two clients are alike. This is the foundation of what we believe and it is reflected in our mortgage products, which have been designed to meet the unique needs of your customers.

This is outlined by the following criteria that are an inherent part of our lending principles at CMI:
  • We look beyond credit scores; we understand that a credit score is just a number and doesn’t tell the whole story. Instead, we focus on the borrower as an individual and their ability to carry their mortgage obligations.
  • We’re always here to help – particularly when your clients don’t qualify for traditional bank financing due to credit issues or non-traditional sources of income. We’ll treat them with the respect and care they deserve while finding a suitable mortgage solution for their needs.
  • Our straightforward, practical lending guidelines don’t make you and your clients jump through hoops. Instead, we only ask you to provide the information necessary to make an informed lending decision.
  • Our “makes sense” income approach provides additional flexibility when it comes to approving a mortgage deal.
  • Our team excels at putting complex mortgage deals together for borrowers that don’t fall under the conventional guidelines that many of the banks and insurance companies must follow.

An Award Winning Team

A culture of excellence and innovation is the driving force behind CMI’s coveted status in the industry and our successes year after year. This culture has enabled us to be nominated for, and win a number of industry and broader business awards over our 15 years. Here’s a glimpse at a few of our most recent accolades:
2019 Growth 500 Award Winner by Canadian Business magazine (ranked #130)
2019 Mortgage Awards of Excellence Finalist - “Private Lender”
2019 Canadian Mortgage Awards Finalist - “Employer of Choice”
