Michael was so incredible at answering all of our questions and making what can be a confusing process for first time home buyers a breeze. We really felt he advocated on our behalf and he worked until the last second on offer day to make sure that our mortgage was preapproved in time. 10/10 recommend :)

Michael is a dedicated and knowledgeable adviser who helped us greatly in very tricky circumstances. We had moved from the UK to Vancouver only very recently and Michael helped us beyond what we had expected, in terms of referrals for legal/tax advice and his excellent knowledge of the mortgage system in BC. Michael is also a very approachable person and was available to us whenever we needed him. I can't recommend him highly enough and will certainly use his services again in the future.

I had the good fortune of having Michael and his team help me with getting a mortgage in the stressful process of purchasing a property. He is professional, warm, understanding, and doing things in the best interest of his clients. He explains well the intricate processes of financing a home, and answered a lot of my questions. Would recommend Michael to anyone who is in a similar situation to mine.

Ray Collier

When I needed bridge financing for a large real estate transaction, on short notice, the Vancouver law firm I was working with recommended that I speak with Michael Friedman. Michael could not have been more helpful or efficient. He met with me virtually by GoToMeeting, explained my options and clearly explained the application process. I provided him with the relevant personal information he needed through a secure and easy to use software package and then he went to work. By morning of the next day, he got back to me with more than one viable option. Michael has a positive attitude and friendly personality. He explains things clearly and works hard to secure favourable terms for the client. I have worked with other Mortgage brokers in the past but have never been more impressed. I highly recommend this guy.

I've dealt with Michael in the past and recently my husband and I contacted Michael with questions about our mortgage and things we're dealing with during Covid.
Michael took the time to give us advice and options and never made us feel like we were taking up his time like another mortgage broker that we previously contacted before him.
I know when it's time to refinance our mortgage Michael will be the one that we'll be calling.
He's a caring and compassionate person and so knowledgeable about everything mortgage.
Thank you Michael for all your help!
I'll recommend him to family and friends anytime they have mortgage questions or renewals.

My wife and I have known Michael for many years and this is my first time working on a mortgage through him. This would be the second time he's secured a mortgage for my wife and he was the utmost professional. He was always accessible when we needed to meet up and discuss things when we needed advice. The best part about the process is he really listens to your story first, what your situation is and before he crunches the numbers for you, he advises what he thinks is the best case scenario for you before he starts the ground work. Being a first time buyer, a lot of these things were new to me but Michael was able to break things down to dummy terms and made sure we understood everything before we dotted the i's and crossed the t's. We were able to secure and capatalize on a great interest rate and a mortgage plan that worked for us and our lifestyle. I highly recommend him as a mortgage advisor for those looking for one in the future. He's a busy man, but will find time to squeeze you in when you need him. He knows his stuff and puts YOU first folks...that's a big difference between him and a lot of folks in his field. In a time and age like this and the economy the way it is today, it's refreshing to have someone look out for your best interests. Thank you Michael, we can't think of anyone better for our future purchases!

In our meetings with Michael Friedman to obtain mortgage financing for a view property in Ladner, B.C., we were provided with up to date market information and experienced professional advice to make a good decision. Michael explained all the mortgage and rate options as well as short term and long term considerations to meet our needs. Michael helped to simplify the approval process and placed our mortgage at a very progressive institution. We would not hesitate to utilize Michael's expertise for other property purchases and for referral to other friends and family who require traditional and creative financing options.

Two years ago I wrote a reivew for Michael after he helped me get my first property. I'm now looking at my options to purchase my next place and have returned to him for advice. Michael's guidance in again proving invaluble and I would certainly highly recommend his services to anyone.

Here's my original review...
Michael's knowledge and professionalism is second to none. He's adept at explaining the benefits of any option in such a complex field to anyone from first time buyer to those with a good degree of strategic thinking themselves. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to both friends and business partners.

Shane Dinh

Shane Dinh

I can not recommend Micheal enough. As a first time home buyer, I was worried about feeling overwhelmed by the entire process. His knowledge, experience and level of customer service made me feel at ease and confident moving forward.

Micheal took the time to get to know me, my family and my situation which resulted in a mortgage that fit me better than anything I could have gotten at my bank or credit union (and I tried). I would gladly refer him to my friends and family.

Nick Waanders

Nick Waanders

Our financial advisor recommended we go with Origin-Friedman mortgage advisors, and they were very helpful answering our many questions. Michael helped us get a pre-approval for a mortgage, which gave us the confidence we needed to find the home we wanted. When we found it we needed to move quickly, and Patti helped us tremendously by getting subjects out of the way within a few days, and we were able to put in a winning offer. We're looking forward to working with both Michael and Patti again!

Ben Greenberg

I've known Michael Friedman since 1997, and he helped me with 4 mortgages, the most recent being the new house my family and I will be moving in at the end of February 2013. Always professional, courteous and reachable, Michael is the ultimate mortgage broker, with a vast knowledge about the world of finances that, for most of us is quite baffling. He listened to us, understood perfectly our needs, and tailored for us the mortgage of our future home.
Thanks again, Michael, and keep up the good work!

Jeff Town

Jeff Town

Michael was fantastic; relational, communicative, responsive, flexible and solution focused. As a first time home buyer I went to Michael on the recommendation of a friend who had worked with him. My mortgage journey had high highs and low lows! In the end I wasn't able to work with Michael due to restrictions with the project. Not only did he hand off the work his office had prepared to the on-site broker but followed up with me with more information and suggestions. I talked to a number of mortgage representatives and the majority were quite laissez fair about my business. Some spoke down to me as a fist-time home buyer and most wanted me to fit into their terms. Friedman understands my generation (30-35); he provided info via email, educated me in a manner that empowered me in my decisions and was available. In five years when my mortgage is open to re-negotiate I will be working with Michael.

Adrienne Tsou-Lee

Adrienne Tsou-Lee

Excellent! Our realtor recommended working with Michael and he was extremely professional, accessible and resourceful. He listened carefully to our wishes to obtain a mortgage for our home and for investment purposes and was able to find and tailor a mortgage to meet all of our needs. Michael was extremely accessible, even using technology to accomodate meetings with my husband and I when one of us was travelling. The process so smooth and Michael always made an extra effort to help us and find answers to our questions.

We were extremely happy working with Michael and would highly recommend his services to anyone!

Deborah Hamilton

Deborah Hamilton

It is such a pleasure dealing with Michael. He is fast, efficient, courteous, and extremely helpful. The most painful part of refinancing my mortgage has been waiting for the lawyer's office to call - dealing with Michael and getting approval was the easy part.

Alan Richards

Alan Richards

We had a great first homebuying experience with Michael. He spent lots of time explaining the whole process to us, and answered every question we had along the way. We were able to teleconference to meetings separately from our workplaces avoiding the need to go to his office for each meeting. Finally he sent us a nice thank you card and very thoughtful gift that showed he listened to our conversations more than just the financial numbers.

Michael helped my wife and I with our mortgage for our first home and we were very happy with the process. Michael met us at a time and place that was convenient and explained how mortgages work. He helped us find the best rate on the market and being a mortgage broker, found us a mortgage that fit our needs best. My two brothers also worked with Mike for their mortgages and were very satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my family or friends for their mortgages.

Matt Hayden

Matt Hayden

It was great working with Michael. We really appreciated that we didn't have to leave our house to get our mortgage done, and we could see on screen everything that he was talking about. Definitely, will recommend him to others.

UPDATE: After arranging our lending with Michael, it took us a little longer to close our purchase than what we had anticipated. Our lawyer called to let us know that our lending rate would expire. I called Michael to find out if we could have it extended for another week. He said he could, and due to circumstances at the time when he called back to tell us it was taken care of we also got a nice surprise that he was able to secure a slightly lower rate. He definitely went above and beyond!!

My experience with Michael has been an education to say the least. The financing side of purchasing a home can be overwhelming, but Michael has a way of providing information in a way that is easy to absorb with great transparency. He provided several options and explained how each works. He is truly an expert and throughout the whole process, I know he is protecting and considering my best interest.

Suvi Teigen

Suvi Teigen

Working with Michael on my mortgage was a fantastic experience. He is patient in explaining financial information and trends that I otherwise had little experience with. Phone meetings with him were easy to coordinate, and he was always organized, punctual, and personal in his approach. I honestly felt like I was his only client the entire time I was working with him, even though I know that cannot possibly be the case. In addition to this, I felt that Michael had my best interests in mind and inspired the idea in me that I can be mortgage-free in under 10 years! I'm hoping to utilize other services he has recommended to improve my overall financial picture. I am really, REALLY pleased with this service and would highly recommend Michael to anyone

Our mortgage was not the easiest to approve, but Michael had gone the extra miles helping us secure financing. Able to be in reach with Michael throughout the entire application process which is critical for us. The follow up that Michael had provided us is also tremendous. Michael really looks after our needs and provides customized lending solutions. Will definitely recommend!

Faraz Khan

Faraz Khan

We were referred to Michael through our developer's Sales Centre. We decided to give him a try as our financial institution was offering a higher than normal market rate. Upon speaking with Michael, he assured us he could get us a better rate than our financial institution. Michael moves very fast. He is efficient and seemed to know exactly what was required and when we needed to submit it. He didn't ask for more information than he needed, which was nice because we didn't need to call around to get forms and papers he wasn't going to use. After 4 days, we were so happy to find out he was able to get us a posted rate at a local Credit Union. With his assurances, quick action, meet anywhere/anytime motto, I would recommend Michael to anybody who is looking for a mortgage (the useful gifts he sent us were a nice touch too). Thank you for your help Michael!

Carla Peck

Michael walked us through all of our options and helped us find the best product for our needs. He kept in regular contact as we searched and always was quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. It is incredibly convenient for me to be able to communicate through email and phone as babysitting isn't always accessible for in person meetings. Overall, Michael made this process as smooth as possible and we feel we have come out of it with the best financial product for our unique situation. Very grateful!

I am just so happy that Michael managed to secure a suitable mortgage for me that at first seemed to be so impossible. I do appreciate his efforts and thank him kindly for that; and wish him the best of success in achieving his goals. Dr. Pasha

Michael made this whole 'finding a mortgage that works for me' process so easy. He explains the mortgage hows and whys in a simple yet easy to understand format and empowers you to choose your best option. Thanks again!

Michael was incredibly helpful from the start with a clear plan for me on how to progress through the different steps. He explained the pros and cons of every move and guided me through every step. He was very responsive given the urgency of things in this market and genuinely cared and put my best interests at priority at all times. It was a pleasure and a great learning experience working with him. He went above and beyond to seek out the best rates for us and I would gladly work with him in future. He also took the time to break down the minutiae of the Mortgage application process and ensured that I was cognizant of the different options and terms and conditions that were available to me to help me make the best decision.

Michael helped us get a mortgage for our first home and gave us confidence we were getting one that fit our requirements at a great rate. Throughout the process he was able to answer all of our questions, no matter how basic or specific they were. Thanks again.

Michael has secured two mortgages for us & we will definitely use his services again in the future!
Michael is super supportive and efficient. He is there with you every step of the way and lets you know exactly what is going on. He’s easy to get ahold of & works very quickly. I get rather anxious with these types of big life things & Michael was able to calm my nerves. 5 stars!!!

Can't say enough how much we appreciated Michael's attention to detail on finding out exactly how much we could afford. It was also so convenient to be able to meet remotely over the internet so that we didn't have to arrange childcare. Thank you for easing our stress as we pursued such a large purchase!

Michael had treated my wife and I like we were family. He was very supportive and understanding when it came to us getting our first home. The transition was very easy and made a lot more sense, thanks to Michael taking the time to clarify and help us understand areas that we are not too familiar with. Going with Michael and his company was absolutely the right move for us, for as soon as we put an offer down on our current home, the financials were taken care of in only a couple of days! Thank you Michael for getting Leah and I our new home!

We recently started working with Michael when we began our journey from renters to home owners. He was incredibly patient and easy to work with -- meeting and exceeded our expectations. I'm confident that we would not be home owners now if it wasn't for his help. Thank you for making this transition a smooth one. I would recommend Friedman Mortgage Advisors to anyone looking to fill their mortgage needs.

Michael is nothing if not thorough and meticulous in his approach. He went out of his way to meet my mother in person since she isn't tech-savvy. He has over 30 years experience in his field and it shows. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any mortgage and financing needs.

Michael helped me it with my first mortgage. He made it simple and convenient for me. Michael would be working around the clock in order for me to meet deadlines and he was able to get me a lower rate near the end. I would recommend him to friends and family and I would use him again.

Michael Friedman helped us through our first mortgage and made the process as painless as possible. He walked us through everything step by step, even working on the long weekend to help get our tight deadlines met. He took every opportunity to get us the best rate, even managing to get it dropped lower when rates dropped after we had signed all the initial documents. I would recommend him to any and everyone.

Michael was absolutely wonderful and easy to work with. We've never worked with a Mortgage Broker or bought property in Canada before and we walked us through every step thoroughly and with patience. He's absolutely fantastic and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

Worked with Michael to buy our new house. He also connected us with our selling Realtor, Todd Conner. Both did an excellent job. Michael is very straightforward, which we appreciate. He got us a great rate. He phoned me on my birthday! Highly recommended.
