Patty Hopper


Got mortgage questions? I’ve got mortgage answers! Getting a mortgage may seem daunting- there are a lot of options to consider, and a lot of questions to ask. Such as: should you choose a fixed rate mortgage? A variable rate? Or maybe a combination of the two? How much are you able to afford? How can you tailor a mortgage to fit you better? Whatever your mortgage questions, I’m here to answer them. Working together with you, I can help you find the mortgage that fits with your personal financial needs, and explain how a Vancity mortgage gives back to you and your neighbourhood. I’ve been offering mortgage solutions for over twenty years, and I know the North and West Vancouver markets inside and out.
