We wouldn’t have this home if it wasn’t for Steve. The things that he did for us was amazing.

Steve went above and beyond the call of his duty

I have had the pleasure of working with a very knowledgable and professional advisor. Steve went above and beyond the call of his duty and I am most grateful to have had this experience. What I also appreciate, is that he is available. If I had to leave a message, and that was rare, he was prompt in returning emails, texts and calls. There are few people of this calibre in the financial business. He is a 5 star plus. If you need a mortgage or re-financing, or any other financing help, the reviews speak for themselves. He covers many services and you may find yourself in need. He’s your go-to guy. Thank you Steve.

We have been working with Steve for almost two years. He has been instrumental in helping us make the “right” mortgage choices. Steve is knowledgeable, helpful and great to work with. He always keeping his client’s interests front and centre. We really value his advice and have no hesitation in recommending his services to other potential clients.

Steve is quite interesting. He didn’t ask the normal questions that you would expect a broker to ask in terms of getting a mortgage. He wanted to know long term plans. He worked so hard to make sure that I had the right product and not just the right interest rate.

Steve and I worked together to complete a mortgage re-finance transaction for a mutual client. Steve was fantastic to work with. He is professional, knowledgeable and approachable. I found it extremely helpful when Steve made a point to maintain open communication with me and the lender to make sure the deal ran smoothly and was completed on time. I very much enjoyed working with Steve and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a competitive mortgage rate and/or comprehensive mortgage advice. Thanks Steve!

I highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking for a mortgage!

Steve was recommended by a close of mine when we were looking for a competitive mortgage provider for our new home. We received honest and professional advice from Steve. The entire end to end process was both comfortable and informative. He made extra efforts to ensure the mortgage provider and the law firm (and I) were on track to close the home. I highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking for a mortgage. Give him a call!

Steve was great to work with. Since we have an older home in a rural area, it is trickier to find a lender. Steve found us a great deal at a great lender that fit our needs perfectly.

We first contacted Steve a little over a year ago when we were planning our move home from Alberta to Ontario. As first time home buyers, the mortgage world was new to us. Steve took the time to explain everything in detail and ensured that we understood the information. In the last year, before, during and after our move Steve took the time to check in to see how we were doing and asked if we had any questions. My wife and I were impressed that he stayed in contact with us. When it came time to purchase our first home he was with us every step of the way, answering phone calls and emails promptly. Now that we’ve moved into our home Steve has checked in once again to ensure that everything is going well, including sending us a a Christmas card. It’s nice to know that Steve takes the time to build relationships with his clients. We truly appreciate everything Steve has done to make buying our first home an enjoyable experience.

Steve was a professional from beginning to end in setting up our new mortgage. The value of professional advice compared to dealing with our bank was immediately clear. Steve’s knowledge, attention to detail and guidance saved us time and thousands of dollars. He demonstrated beyond any shadow of doubt that he values and protects the long term client/professional relationship over any short term personal gain.

We initially approached Steve after our broker from Dominion went AWOL in the middle of our purchase and sale agreement. Steve provided some advice while we tried to get a response from the broker and once we knew the Dominion broker could not be counted on to close our purchase, we decided to go with Steve for the pre-approval and then final closing on the deal. Was a complex purchase given our existing rental portfolio but Steve helped navigate the process and collect all the information needed. He knew which lender to go to and we secured very favorable terms and was communicative throughout and give us frequent updates as we went along. Very professional in his work and also a friendly individual. Its not a matter of if, but when, we look at our next rental property purchase, we will be calling Steve again for our business and look forward to working with him again

Steve Tallo took care of all of my needs for my new mortgage and ensured my family was covered for everything we needed from the time we hired him right through to after we received the keys to our new home. Steve is extremely knowledgeable and courteous and makes sure you are walked through each step of the process. He got us the best rate we could possibly get. I would definitely use Steve again.

It is a pleasure to work with Steve. Steve is very knowledgeable and understanding. He makes sure he provides the right product to suit your needs. He works for his client’s interest instead of the banks. I look forward to work with Steve again and would recommend his service to anyone.

It’s Not All About A Rate!

Our mortgage term came up for renewal recently and my wife and I planned to deal with our bank directly. I decided to opt for the services of a mortgage broker. A friend referred us to Steve Tallo of Oriana Financial.

Steve assessed our complicated mortgage situation right away and stressed the need to refinance and provided us with a plan and effective ‘what if’ scenarios. He actively listened to us with respect to our wants and needs, but also focused on the bigger picture in terms of long term guidance and having us consider a well balanced approach to the mortgage but also investments, RRSPs, RESPs and life insurance. Steve obtained for us a competitive interest rate and kept us informed through-out the entire process and continued to support us even when the mortgage financing was arranged. He gave us complete peace of mind.

It is not all about rate. Our bank only offered to renew our mortgage but Steve collapsed all debt into our new mortgage with the refinancing; the improvement to our monthly cash flow is significant. We are very comfortable with the new arrangements and Steve has been a great ‘advisor’ and not just a broker. His customer service and level of support have been stellar. I highly recommend Steve and I am sure you will not be disappointed. Thanks Steve.

… thank you for all your help in securing our new home and saying goodbye to our old one. The cheque cleared a few moments ago and we now have a zero balance on our lines of credit. Your efficient and professional services were the way all business transactions should occur.

Surpassed Our Expectations!

Working with Steve surpassed our expectations! He not only took the time to get to know us, he took the time needed to fully explain our options and guide us in an appropriate direction with ease and comfort. Steve put us on the “right track” and provided us with the tools to make our refinancing a success!

Mortgage Refinance

Steve Tallo is a client of mine, in small talk it came up that I was refinancing my mortgage and this is when Steve gave me his card. A couple months went by as I was unsure of what I was doing. Steve assured me that this was a a great decision and would help clear up some of my personal debt as well as free up money to re-invest into rrsp’s. Not knowing anything about refinancing, tax’s or rrsp’s I had my personal accountant review everything Steve had sent me for a second opinion. My accountant assured me that all the information was correct and gave me the go ahead to move forward. Steve took care of everything and the refinance closed without a hitch. The ease of business was refreshing. Thank you Steve.

Knows His Stuff!

For several years we had a mortgage and Home Equity Line of Credit with one of the big Banks, and thought we were getting the best financing available. Steve quickly assessed our situation and presented options to consolidate debt, improve our monthly cash flow, and he was able to secure a better rate. I was impressed with his professional and no-pressure approach, and that he took the time to make sure we understood the options and our before and after position. In the end, we feel confident that we now have the right mortgage solution for us, not merely some cookie-cutter product. Steve goes out of his way to understand his clients’ needs and provides exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him for his ability to simplify the numbers, his professionalism and excellent service.

D.T.

Such an awesome experience with Steve! Steve went above and beyond our expectations. Always available to listen and to guide through all aspects of the financing process! You couldn’t ask for a better mortgage broker!

Alisha Petsinis

Steve Cares and Works for You For several years we had a mortgage and Home Equity Line of Credit with one of the big Banks, and thought we were getting the best financing available. We have good credit and mistakenly we always thought that you only go to a mortgage agent if you have bad credit. What a misconception!!! Steve quickly assessed our situation and presented options to consolidate debt, improve our monthly cash flow, and he was able to secure a better rate. In the end, we feel confident that we now have the right mortgage solution for us. Steve goes out of his way to understand his clients’ needs and provides exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him for his ability to simplify the numbers, his professionalism and excellent service.
