What clients are saying about Shaun Zipursky Mortgage Broker

Shaun is the reason we were able to purchase our condo. He managed to pull together financing for us on a Sunday evening, with no notice, which allowed us to beat out other offers. On top of that he was a real pleasure to deal with, and a great guide for us as first time home buyers.

Peter Eirikson

Shaun is attentive, informative, and very helpful. I have used him twice now as my mortgage broker, and he has done a stand up job on both occasions. I highly recommend him.

Stephen Balnave

Shaun has been my broker for many years now. He has always been very thorough to ensure I got exactly the type of mortgage that I needed. He even at one point cut himself out of the equation, and therefore his commission, because it was better for me. That type of honesty and integrity is rare and much appreciated. My new mortgage was quite complicated, and Shaun delivered as promised. His assistant Danielle was also very helpful and deserves mention. I highly recommend Shaun .He is an excellent broker.

Ralph Rasmussen

Shaun is extremely knowledgeable about the workings of mortgages, and the big players in the mortgage space. He was able to get me a mortgage at much better rates from the big and medium sized banks that I approached individually. He's responsive to questions, and is proactive in providing payment strategies that ended up saving me significantly. I highly recommend Shaun if you are in the market for a mortgage.

Tom Davis

Shaun has been so great to work with! He was recommend by a friend and I'm glad I followed up on the recommendation. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions throughout the whole process and Shaun always took the time to provide as much information as possible and is fast and responsive. Working with him and Danielle has been a seamless process. I know he worked hard to get me a great deal and that was very much appreciated.

Eleni Korres

Shaun and his team are professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. This is my second mortgage with them, and they have been nothing but fabulous. Considering this is the biggest purchase of my life, they presented various options and went through them in detail. He provided advice that worked well with my current situation, and never pushed any one option. He ensured that I was comfortable with my options/decisions that was best for ME, not his commission. I would highly recommend Shaun and his team, 200%!! Thanks again! 🙂

Second Time
Melissa Lee

Three years later, I’ve come back to Shaun and Danielle again for my mortgage needs. In a world where GOOD customer service is rare, these two go above and beyond, and I truly appreciate that. Not only will I be back in 5 years when my mortgage is up for renewal, but given the opportunity, I will always pass their names along to people in the market for a mortgage.

Both Shaun and his assistant Danielle were always available when we had questions along with timely responses even after hours! Shaun's professionalism, thoughtful attitude and honesty makes it a pleasure to work with him again and again. I highly recommend him to any primary/investment home buyer.

Timely and Respectful
Christine S - Langley

As First Time Buyers we had a lot of questions, Shaun and his team were not only extremely knowledgeable but were also very considerate in ensuring we understood the options to us and what would best suit our needs. Their professional and genuine approach helped us through what can be a very stressful process and landed us happily in our first home.

We will continue to recommend Shaun to anybody we know that may require his services. We really appreciate everything he did for us, he really made it easy for us which was huge during such a hectic time.

Chelsea and Greg W - New Kamploops Owners

Shaun, Danielle and his team helped us to find the best fit for our mortgage needs and to plan where we wanted to be 10 years from now. His dedication to his clients is most impressive and his team really makes every effort to go the extra mile.

David B – Vancouver

Shaun & Danielle at CityWide will have my business for a long time! I recently refinanced a property in a very busy and stressful time. While Shaun was also quite busy (due to being so popular as a mortgage broker!) he made the time to thoroughly discuss options to aid me toward financing with the best lender for my situation. I had sudden tight timelines on my side and the CityWide team made every effort to accommodate me – which they did! I now have my second mortgage and will happily refer family and friends to CityWide!

November 2015

J Henry – North Vancouver

This is the third mortgage we’ve done with Shaun Zipursky and we wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Service: check!

Attention to detail: check!

Knowledge of the market: check!

Ability to get a great deal: DOUBLE check!

But what we like most is the feeling that Shaun always has our backs. It’s hard to put a value on that, but having someone who’s fighting to get you the best deal, asking all the questions you never thought to ask, checking and double checking to make sure nothing gets missed – it counts for a LOT.

Thanks Shaun for all your help, looking forward to working with you on #4

J Dolan

Working with Shaun was a great experience. Our home search was long and arduous and as a first time buyer a mortgage was very daunting. Shaun and his team took the time to explain everything and answer our endless questions. We feel we made a well informed decision that will serve us well for the term of our mortgage and are thankful for that experience with Shaun.

N Vecsei and J Henry – North Van

I would highly recommend Shaun to anybody looking for a mortgage! He made the mortgage process the easiest part of the entire real estate transaction. This was just the start of his dedication to continue to support me throughout the term of the mortgage. Less than 2 years later I had to make changes to my mortgage so I was the sole person on the title and Shaun and his team again did an awesome job! I didn’t realize how complicated it would be to change the title on a mortgage and property, but I knew from the start that I didn’t have to worry about the mortgage portion. i look forward to working with Shaun again in the future.

M Murdoch – Port Moody

It has been a pleasure to work with Shaun. When I purchased my first home, he patiently walked me through the process of mortgaging and got me an excellent deal. When renewal came up, he again outlined all my options and provided sound advice. I consider myself fortunate to have encountered a broker who puts his client’s interests before all else, and I have no reservations about recommending Shaun to others.

Matsumura – Vancouver

We enjoyed working with you again! As much as we would prefer you to still have your office in Ladner, we were happy that we were able to do it via email – which means that wherever we go, we can still have the opportunity to deal with you (but would still rather have you here!).

Other than that, you and Chelsea were great – sometimes pushing us a bit to get stuff signed, but that is how you keep us on track. All of our emails, and any phone calls, were dealt with promptly & you were available for any questions.

Thanks so much again!

May 2014

B & M Sheppard – Ladner

Thank you so much! i do really appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and i will absolutely be back in 3 years when my mortgage comes up for renewal again. it’s a bit anomalous these days to encounter good service – restaurant or otherwise – but you and Chelsea have gone above and beyond the entire way, and i truly appreciate that. When i have the opportunity, i will definitely pass your name along to people in the market for a mortgage.

G Schellenberg – Port Moody

I’m going to be totally frank and honest because that is what you need to hear not what you want to hear. I have and will continue to recommend you to other. I don’t know if it is just because you know me, but the lengths of patience is very appreciated. In out, up down, on and off, changes and changes, the number ONE thing is getting back to us and in your genre of work that is critical… and you did it every time. I really don’t know how you manage all the correspondence! GREAT job and I’m not sure that I would have been able to do everything without your finesse with all the balls in the air.

Now for the negative.. Can’t think of anything!

Feb 2014

S Greenstien – Ladner

What can we say? You go above and beyond all the time. Shaun, your ability to put people at ease and explain all the complexities in terms easy for us to understand is excellent. You also surround yourself with very capable, friendly staff. None of these qualities has gone unnoticed. You truly enjoy your work and your always friendly interaction with people is obviously genuine.

Thanks again for everything Shaun. It will be our pleasure to recommend you to anyone.

C & E Oliver – Ladner

THANK YOU for your amazing work to secure this mortgage for us. Both Lindsay and yourself were always available to answer every small query we had and all our concerns were put to rest with infinite patience and with our best interest at heart!

THANK You again, I can definitely recommend you and your wonderful team at Citywide to our friends.

J & N Homem – Ladner

I have to say a gigantic than you to both yourself and Lindsay. if it wasn’t for you I just don’t know what I would have done. You two are very special people and I will always be thankful to my Realtor who put us together. I have already shared with anyone who will listen how helpful and kind you both were and if they need a mortgage specialist they should go to you! I can’t say thank you enough…

D Lister – Tsawwassen

I have nothing but great things to say about our experience working with you. Your process was smooth and easy!! Need I tell you how wonderful it was to deal with Lindsay??? She was easy to get in touch with, responded to my questions quickly and explained things so that they made sense to me without being condescending or rushed. There were times where I needed clarification a couple of times regarding the same question and she was always rock solid and lovely to deal with! I could rave about her forever. She is the type of person I wish I had as my own employee.

As for my personal dealings with you, I feel much the same way. Friendly, honest and real. If I ever felt like I didn’t understand something, I felt very comfortable in asking. I felt you were genuine and extremely knowledgeable. You were easy to work with and always available. Plus, you sent me flowers and THAT is always recognized.

I will always recommend you to those I know looking for a mortgage specialist!

J Sinclair – North Vancouver

My wife and I found Shaun Zipursky while surfing the internet looking for our first mortgage 9 years ago. When we thought about purchasing an investment property the first person we thought about was calling Shaun as our first dealing with him was outstanding. I have to say that both Shaun and his assistant Lindsay went way above the call of duty and exceeded all our expectations which made the whole process painless. We can’t say enough about Shaun and Lindsay and the customer service they provided to us. We recommend Shaun to anyone looking for a mortgage.

It was a pleasure to work with you and Lindsay on our mortgage. We feel like we got a great mortgage product, and we are both so impressed with the high quality of service that you and Lindsay provided throughout the process – you really stood out from everyone else we dealt with on the purchase of our home. We will make sure to recommend you to anyone we know who is in the market for a mortgage.

J Carter & M Tweedie – Vancouver

I would like to thank the two of you for the incredible work you did on our behalf. We simply cannot think that this could have gone any smoother than it did! From finding the best deal for us, to the ease of everything that was required from our end, you guys are the best. You can be sure we would deal with you again, and we most certainly would recommend your excellent services to anyone we know.

Shaun went above and beyond the call of duty in helping explain things in regards to borrowing money – much appreciated and couldn’t have done it without him – We have already told many friends and contacts/acquaintances to use his services!!

J Eades

Shaun Zipursky and Lindsay Fowler handled our case. They were both fantastic! Any time we called either the phone was picked up right away or it was returned very shortly after. They were very helpful with every question we had and if they were unsure they quickly got the information we needed. I have passed on their cards to numerous friends looking for a mortgage.

K Lam

I was very pleased with the services provided. I enjoyed the friendly attitude and accepted a lot of suggestions and advice provided. I would do business with Shaun and his assistant Lindsay every time.

Shaun Zipursky and his assistant Lindsay Fowler were superb. I have renewed my mortgage with them three times and each time they are been outstanding — service, knowledge, follow-through…

C Thornicroft – Victoria

I’m very impressed with the City Wide Mortgage team. I have referred several people to Shaun and his team, and will continue to do so in the future.

A Gibson – Poco

We had an excellent experience working with our broker and his assistant (Shaun Zipursky and Lindsay Fowler). We felt they really understood our situation as self-employed people and sought out the best financing arrangements for us. Communications were always clear even when there were issues to be ironed out. We have already recommended their services.

June 2012

E & P Keenleyside – Tsawwassen

Our realtor referred us to Shaun plus we were going to contact Shaun personally because we knew him. He helped me a LOT in understanding fixed and fluctuating loan rates. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaun Zipursky.
