About Lisa

AMP - Accredited Mortgage Professional, Mortgage Agent

Thank you for visiting my blog, this is a place for me to share my opinions about the mortgage industry, share helpful information and perhaps a few videos. 


My goal was to provide a resource for my clients and partners where they could read the mortgage news that matters to them.


I've been in the mortgage industry for over 20 years, my career started with TD Canada Trust where I specialized in helping self-employed clients obtain mortgages for their home or business. Understanding that these clients required greater options and flexibility, I left the bank and became a licensed mortgage agent.

The L A Mortgage Team, Mortgage Intelligence was created along with my friend & business partner Ana Cruz. Together we have successfully built an award-winning team which has doubled in growth each year.   We lead in the market as industry-experts and have won awards each year with our brokerage as being a top team in our industry. Words cannot express how proud I am of our team and our accomplishments.

My speciality continues to serve the self-employed market with residential and commercial mortgages, however I partner with anyone looking for mortgage financing including first-time home buyers, investors, salaried professionals and those that require help due to credit challenges.  

I come from a family of small business owners specializing in commercial construction, custom kitchen cabinetry, retail clothing, residential & commercial property investments, this market is close-to-home for me.   I'm a strong supporter of the small business industry in Canada and will do my part to provide financing for these entrepreneurs who require solutions no less than anyone else.

For the past 10 years I have lived in Burlington, Ontario with my amazing and supportive husband along with our fur-babies.  When I'm not talking about mortgages I enjoy unplugging and being out in nature, hiking, yoga and enjoying good food and wine that I did not prepare whenever possible!
