Josée Ménard

Mortgage Broker
The Mortgage Advisors

As a bilingual Mortgage Broker there are many reasons why Josée enjoys helping people with their mortgage needs. Perhaps the most obvious is the deep satisfaction that comes from helping people realize their dreams and help them accomplish financial success.  Another reason she loves what she does is that mortgages are a real learning process. No two clients are the same, no two mortgages are the same and no two dreams are the same. Each has its own characteristics and challenges. However, it is particularly through overcoming the challenges where she learns the lessons that enable her to improve her quality of service.
