I bring over 30 years of financial services experience to my role as a mortgage agent with Mortgage Brokers Ottawa. In addition to working for the RBC Financial Group, I worked for several global financial institutions including UBS (Switzerland), Legg Mason (US) and Landsbanki (Iceland).
My financial services career started in small branches in rural B.C. I then went on to small business account management in Vancouver, head office roles in Toronto, and finally Vice President Treasury Products with Landsbanki in Ottawa.
I am very active in the community as a member of the Kiwanis Club, and as founder and President of a local whisky club, the Ottawa Whisky Guild....
Your service was great and timely when we needed it to be and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our friends.

Tom is an excellent mortgage agent. He worked very hard - for many weeks - to make it possible for us to refinance one property in order to buy another one. In our case, the financing was complicated by many factors but Tom was undaunted and optimistic that he could find us willing lenders and good rates. He even sought expert advice from others on our behalf when we needed it. It was especially helpful that Tom was able to make âhouse callsâ to make meetings easier for us around our work and family responsibilities. Thanks Tom! We couldnât have done it without you!

Tom was recommended to us by our realtor. He provided a very prompt reply to help us dealing with our mortgage application. I was part of a relocation process and needed lot of paper word from the bank and the mortgage broker and he provided to us all the documentation necessary is very fast delay, often on last minute request. He also, deliver in person to Vancouver all the paper work for ease of processing as we were very busy with the kids and the move, this was a tremendous help and was very appreciated. We had a very good service and Tom is also helping us socially settling in our new community. I would recommend Tom to anyone that would required a mortgage broker in a hearth beat. Merci Tom

"As first time home buyers, Tom was able to quickly put our minds at
ease as we progressed through our first mortgage experience. His
knowledge and professionalism led us to a fantastically low mortgage
rate for our first home. As we were closing on our home, we dealt with
a very frustrating situation with our real estate lawyer. Tom went
above and beyond his own responsibilities to ensure that despite the
circumstances, the whole experience would end on a positive note. We
couldn't be more pleased with our overall experience with Tom and
would highly recommend him to anyone in need of mortgage services." -

We really appreciate the year you spent helping us reach our dream of becoming homeowners. Our experience working with you was great, and we will be sure to refer you in the future. Thanks again.

"We were very happy to have chosen Tom to help us with our mortgage renewal. Being based overseas, everything was more complicated, but Tom walked us through our options clearly and in a very low-pressure way. His knowledge and advice were very appreciated, and his honesty even more so: ultimately he recommended staying with our current mortgage provider. We have no problems recommending Tom to anyone looking for either a first mortgage or a mortgage renewal."

Over a period of several months, Tom steered us through a series of complex (to us!) transactions associated with the purchase and refinancing of investment properties. In every case, he negotiated great rates and favourable terms and provided outstanding service. His availability over a long holiday weekend, to offer advice and direction when a couple of unexpected glitches arose at the last minute, was the icing on the cake. An unqualified recommendation and heartfelt thanks from both of us!

Tom made a difficult process easier: he worked tirelessly to secure me the best rate he explained my options in detail and he was responsive to changing information. I have recommended Tom in the past, and would do so again in the future.
When John and I got to the point where we were financially ready to knock our house to the ground and rebuild, we called our current big bank lender excited to share the great news that we were ready to construct our new home and give them this business. That bank turned us away in the first conversation saying they would not offer us a construction mortgage nor would any of the big banks.
And so began our journey with Tom. We had no idea what we were getting into and I still think we don't know the half because Tom took care of everything for us. We had a few phone calls with him and he came over after our two year old son was in bed one night to iron out the financing arrangements. From there he took care of all of the arrangements, negotiating the best deal for us and guiding us through the mound of paperwork. Building our new home would not have been possible without Tom's guidance and expertise navigating through the intricacies of new construction financing.

We can't recommend Tom Burrow enough, truly a wonderful experience!!!
My wife and I had the good fortune to connect with Tom through an existing business associate. We were in the early stages of looking to purchase our first house and had already started dealing with another mortgage agent in Ottawa. We didn't feel that we were getting enough information or even the right information until I handed everything over to Tom and started working with him exclusively.
Tom's easygoing manner combined with his invaluable experience and knowledge inspired confidence throughout the entire process. Not only did we get a great rate on our mortgage but Tom went above and beyond providing us valuable insight into the overall process. With Tom looking out for our best interests everything went better than planned
Jonathan and Mary-Beth
Tomâs approach really minimized our stress in the ups and downs of buying and selling houses at the same time. Of course there were unexpected bumps in the road, and with so much at stake, we were grateful to have his expertise to advise us on what our options were with each challenge

Tom is the consummate professional. He answered all my questions promptly and was always available to discuss any concerns regarding various aspects of mortgages - from filling out a mortgage pre-approval application to closing on a new home and everything in between. Tom always had answers to my questions & if he didnât have the answer, he was very quick to find it. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a knowledgeable & personable mortgage professional.
I wanted to take some time and thank you for all of your help along the way with being able to purchase our first home. We are very happy with how things have turned out and how helpful you have been to us. Tom, you have been very kind and considerate, and always very detailed with the information you have given us. So again, I do want to thank you very much for being our Mortgage agent.

I recently dealt with Tom for what was a fairly complicated mortgage situation. Throughout the entire process, not only was Tom extremely professional, he kept on top of every detail ensuring the deal would go through without any trouble. He worked exceptionally hard to make sure that both sides in the negotiation had what was needed and in plenty of time to avoid complication. To boot, he did so with a smile on his face. Excellent customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tom's brokerage services to anyone. Thanks again Tom, couldn't have done it without you.
As a first time buyer, I just wanted to send you a short note to say how much I appreciated you guiding me through this overwhelming process. You were quick to answer all my emails, always patient in answering my multitude of questions, and very knowledgeable. You were amazing and I won't hesitate to recommend you to all my friends! Thanks again for everything.
As first time home buyers, we could not have been more fortunate than to have Tom as our mortgage agent. He was very informative, responded promptly to our questions, and found us a great mortgage rate! We're happy to recommend Tom to anyone buying a home.
Stephanie and Andrew
Thanks for all the help, made it very easy for me and will recommend you to all friends and family.
I was referred to Tom by my realtor, and I couldn't have been happier with his services - he was very easy to consult, and he helped to ensure my first-time home purchase went smoothly. He did a great job of answering all of my questions and keeping in touch during the extended viewing process, and when it came time to settle everything, it was as stress-free as possible. I would definitely recommend Tom to anyone looking for a mortgage broker!
Tom has been more then exceptional through out the entire process of obtaining our mortgage. We should know, as we were not an easy simple sign here kinda deal. But he didn't give up and gave us great advice that helped us along the way in getting a great mortgage and within the timeframe we had. We would highly recommend him to both family and friends and we have and continue to.
Thank you Tom
Tim and Jeanick
Thanks to Tom he made our mortgage renewal process very simple and easy, even going out of his way to get a better rate just before we sign the documents. He was very easy to get a hold of when he was needed. We met with him on our terms and in the comfort of our home plus he was understand when we had our kids around taking some of our attention away but never mind re-explaining certain terms. He really put our minds at ease.
Tim and Joanne
Thanks for getting us a great interest rate
Tom and Madeleine
My mortgage experience with Tom Burrow was excellent!! His knowledge and experience in the mortgage field made me feel confident during the whole process. His attention to detail and exceptional customer service are what made things go smoothly. I will definitely recommend Tom Burrow
Tom was great! Weâre first time home buyers, my husband is an apprentice and I'm self-employed. Most of the big lenders/banks turned us down and told us we would have to wait 3 to 5 more years before being able to get a mortgage. Tom was able to work with us to get us into a home NOW, before the market turned and the prices went up. He was very knowledgeable about our situation and did a great job working around our hectic schedule. Thank you Tom for letting us stop helping other people pay their mortgage and getting us into our forever home!
