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 knowledgea

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.
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.
