Tara Gentles, Mortgage Broker

Hello I’m Tara Gentles and I have been helping my clients arrange mortgage financing since 2006 but have been involved in lending even longer than that! I started out working for the local credit unions but quickly realized that my clients needed a wider range of products to suit their individual needs. That is why I became a broker.

As a Mortgage Expert, working for the #1 franchise with Dominion Lending Centres, I now have access to a wide network of lenders and products to ensure that my clients get the mortgage product they need at the best rate.
I call Cloverdale home and am happy to have the flexibility to meet clients at times and locations that works best for them. I have successfully arranged financing for a wide range of clients, from first time homebuyers to seasoned real estate investors. I have also worked on all types of mortgages and have the ability to find the best solution for my clients every time. My commitment is to make the mortgage transaction as easy as possible for my clients while providing simple explanations for all the options available.

On a personal note, I love being a mom! Being a baseball and dance mom, I have to say that watching my kids perform is one of the best things in the world. When I’m not watching my kids do cool things, I like to spend time out with the girls eating appies and sipping wine!
If you would like to discuss mortgage financing with me, please contact me anytime! I would love to work with you!

Tara is amazing! Always professional, she goes the extra mile. She provides an extraordinary level of service. She kept us in the loop about our deal and got us an excellent rate. She took care of all of the details even she was on holidays. Having worked with Tara on two separate occasions, we know that we can trust her and that she performs with the highest level of integrity.

Tara helped us refinance our mortgage and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the whole process! Tara is so honest and knowledgeable and was able to re-work our mortgage and create a deal that was the perfect fit for us. Tara made refinancing so easy and she was there for us throughoutthe entire process – from just looking into our options to following up with us after the refinancing was complete.

A weight has lifted off our our shoulders after refinancing and we’ll definitelybe using Tara for all our mortgage needs in the future. I highly recommend Tara for anyone wanting to learn more about their mortgage and what their options are.

Thanks so much Tara!

“My wife and I were grateful to find a mortgage broker that was able to clearly help us through the process of buying a home. With so much to think about, Tara’s expertise and timely service made it easy to find the best rate and term that suited us.”

Attentive, authentic, honest, reliable, knowledgable, great listener and communicator… Tara was by our side through the entire financing process, start to finish. We considered using a bank at the start, but Tara not only got us a better rate, she listened to what we needed and found us the perfect lender for our situation. Thank you Tara!


Through the usual procrastination, I put off dealing with the up-coming renewal of our mortgage and created a real time crunch.  Fortunately, a friend recommended Tara.  Even on such short notice, her quick responses, attention to detail and good old fashioned hard work made getting our new mortgage an absolute breeze!  We are recommending Tara to anyone we know, we are confident they will not get better customer service anywhere.

I have to say thanks again for your help with my mortgage application, and retaining our home under my name. Separation is a tough time to handle these matters, along with Christmas time, but your professionalism and industry knowledge made the process easier then I could hope for. You had a few obstacles along the way, and you took them on straight on. Picking up the phone and calling CMHC directly to get involved with one of the obstacles shows me that you are true professional in your industry.

I continue to spread the word about your fantastic help. I strongly recommend to anyone who is seeking help with their mortgage that they contact you. If they should get the same Notary that you sent me then they will be pleased even more. She was a pleasure to deal with as well.

Home Purchase

If you are looking to purchase a property, understanding all the mortgage options available to you can seem overwhelming. That’s where I come in, I do this everyday, and I love it. I will help you make sense of all the numbers guide you through the process.


Are you looking to access some of the equity built up in your property? Maybe you want to consolidate some debts, start a new business, buy a vacation or investment property, or travel the world… regardless, let’s discuss all your mortgage options!



If you are within six months of your mortgage renewal, or if your existing lender has sent you a renewal offer in the mail, I can give you a second opinion, and in most cases save you money. Never just sign the offer, there is always room to negotiate.

Contact Me Anytime

Obviously there are a lot more services I can offer and a lot more information I can share with you. Consider this my invitation to contact me with your questions. My goal is to set you up with the right mortgage for you, then help you build a plan to get rid of it.


I have developed excellent relationships with lenders across the country, let’s figure out which one has the best products for you.
