Alberta Business Financing Solutions

Commercial Financing

Different types of businesses need different types of money at different points in their life, for different reasons. We are money brokers. We can source the funding you desire. I wear two hats. Mortgage financing as a licensed mortgage originator through TMG The Mortgage Group Inc. and non-mortgage business financing through Alberta Business Financing Solutions. TMG and ABFS are connected businesses.

A long and profitable business history and great credit certainly help, but we know that not all businesses meet that profile. That’s OK. We have lenders willing to consider your situation; they will look at the whole picture. Depending on the financing required there are minimum lengths of time the business must have been established and operating.

Our Value Proposition

  • We have access to the lenders
  • We know how best to package up your borrowing proposal
  • We are paid based on our results

Types of Financing
We Engage In

  1. You desire new “hard assets” in order to grow, or modernize, your business. The assets can be furniture, technology, medical equipment, manufacturing, and construction equipment, hardware for the logistics industry, specialty vehicles, signage, waste management, etc. There really are no limits to “hard assets” that can be Leased. (Please note that standard automobiles and trucks are not our market.)
  2. You need some cash to tide you over a slow period. You own relatively new equipment assets with decent remaining economic life. We arrange Equipment Sale and Leaseback financing.
  3. You need cash for down payment and financing for the Acquisition of a business as a business expansion strategy.
  4. You have solid Accounts Receivable, but your customers take 60, 90, 120 days to pay. We can get you your funds now.
  5. You have a steady flow of credit and debit card payments. We provide Debit and Credit Card Advances and take payment as a percentage of FUTURE debit and credit card payments.
  6. You need to buy materials and engage labour for custom builds and are paid on delivery. We arrange Work-In-Progress Inventory Financing.
  7. You have a unique opportunity to buy inventory for resale and need cash to close the deal. We arrange Inventory Financing.
  8. Your business needs a Revolving Line of Credit.
  9. Your business needs a Term Loan. Perhaps for Renovations. Perhaps for Marketing. Other uses certainly considered.
  10. You wish to buy your own building, build your own location, renovate or refinance a building you own? As a Mortgage Broker, and through our brokerage TMG The Mortgage Group Inc. we can bring to you:
    • Raw and serviced land financing
    • Construction financing
    • Financing for your purchase
    • Refinancing options
    • Renewal options

My passion is to help you understand mortgages, understand your personal mortgage opportunity and if the time is right and I’ve earned your business, to obtain the mortgage that you desire. The good news is that for most of the borrowers we work with the lender compensates us for doing the work; so there is no cost to you for our services.

I have been a mortgage originator since 2001, an entrepreneur since 1991 and a corporate employee (technology, mining, and oil and gas) from 1971 to 1990. From these experiences, I understand the true nature of these various types of employment and how that works into the mortgage equation. My family includes five “children” in their 30’s, their significant others and four grandchildren; so I still relate to new families just starting out in life.

I work with first time buyers, long time homeowners, real estate investors and business owners.

My first exposure to general business financing was in 1991 when I took ownership of an ambulance and paramedical services company. I expanded our operations to provide medical support to Canadian and American oil field workers in Western Siberia. We also sold ambulances in Western Canada and brokered a multi-million dollar deal to Iran. From this I gained first hand experience with loans for acquisitions, operating lines of credit, equipment leasing, purchase order financing and international letters of credit.

In early 2017 I associated with our TMG connected “Castle Leasing” team so that I could bring more value to my self-employed mortgage clients. Since then we have expanded the offerings well beyond just Equipment Leasing and have re-branded as Alberta Business Financing Solutions.

TMG The Mortgage Group and Alberta Business Financing Solutions are related companies.

Your Qualified Canadian Mortgage Broker with Experience

I have been a member of both our provincial and national professional associations – the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association and Mortgage Professionals Canada – since I began brokering in 2001.  I continue to seek opportunities to upgrade my knowledge and education through those associations, as well as seeking out other delivery channels.   I am committed to upgrading my education, experience, and professionalism regularly and have demonstrated a personal belief and commitment to our associations Code of Ethics.

Serving New Home Buyers in Alberta and Canada Wide

In addition to being licensed as a mortgage broker with TMG The Mortgage Group Inc. in Alberta, I am also licensed with TMG The Mortgage Group Canada Inc. in British Columbia. In fact, I can place mortgages for property anywhere in Canada. TMG is a full service, full scope brokerage in residential and commercial lending from institutional and private funding sources. As required I can draw on the expertise and connections of over 750 TMG brokers – now in all 10 provinces coast to coast. We just launched in Quebec.

Accomplishments, Past and Present

My second passion is to help new mortgage brokers understand and successfully launch into the mortgage profession. In 2014 I was honoured and humbled to be awarded “Mentor of the Year” by CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) and our national Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) and again the following year as “Mentor of the Year” by the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association.

I am presently engaged in a Task Force with the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association to improve and increase our educational offerings to existing and new brokers and to raise the level of professionalism across our industry

Every year since joining TMG in 2010 I have been recognized as a “Summit 20” top producer and in 2016 was recognized as “Philanthropist of the Year”.

I have been recognized by my peers and provincial association, in two separate forums, for contributions to both the mortgage industry at large and for community service.

Beyond mortgages and family I am a member of the Rotary Club of Calgary Heritage Park and a volunteer and former Board Member of the Disabled Sailing Association of Alberta. Starting in 2008 I also serve on three Condominium Boards.

I have been in the financial services industry for over 25 years and have extensive experience in many different aspects of lending. I have been with TMG The Mortgage Group Inc, and the Brian Gentles Mortgage Team since 2012 and am very proud to be a part of both.

TMG has access to many different lenders, offering solutions to virtually every mortgage lending situation. TMG is also a national partner and supporter of Breakfast Club of Canada, raising funds to provide a nutritious breakfast to students across the country.

Brian and I subscribe to the same principles and values and complement each other very well. We are both active volunteers and believe in giving back to our community. I am an active volunteer with my daughter’s school and act as the Chair of the Parent Advisory Council, as well as the Team Manager on her community soccer team.

I am a member of both our provincial and national associations, Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association (AMBA) and Mortgage Professionals Canada (MPC) and hold the Accredited Mortgage Professional designation. This designation speaks to my commitment to continuous upgrading of my knowledge and skills, to be engaged in the industry on a full-time basis, as well as compliance to a strict code of ethics.

Whether a borrower is a first-time buyer, moving up to their second or third home, or a seasoned investor, the shifting landscape of mortgage financing rules means that the process has likely changed, sometimes significantly, since they last obtained a mortgage.  It is more important than ever to have a trusted mortgage professional to navigate the process for you. Educating our clients and helping them successfully complete the process is just the beginning! We continue to assist our clients throughout the life of the mortgage by developing strategies for them to achieve their long-term ownership goals, whatever those may be.

I have been involved in real estate and mortgage administration for over 25 years and have been licensed by the Real Estate Council of Alberta since 2005. I provide “Loan Partner” assistance to both Brian Gentles and Joanna Sato.

My primary role as a Loan Partner is to ensure all the right paperwork gets to all the right places on time. This includes packaging of all documents for lender review, pulling Land Title records and tax statements, ordering and reviewing appraisals, as well as advising our clients when the lenders have reviewed and accepted their documentation. I follow the mortgage process from pre-approval through to funding; acting as a liaison between client, lender and the lawyer’s office to ensure the process is a seamless one. I also prepare the personal insurance quotations and all documents for client review and signature. At the completion of a mortgage transaction I prepare and file all documents required for regulatory compliance under the Real Estate Act of Alberta or other provinces as appropriate.

Once funded I assist the brokers and clients with any post-funding mortgage servicing requests such as payment changes, bank account changes and preparing documents for those clients wishing to make changes to their existing mortgage (i.e. a conversion from a floating rate mortgage to a fixed rate mortgage). I look forward to assisting with your mortgage needs.

When not helping with mortgages I love to spend time with my children and grandchildren. I also love to travel and read.
