Listen to Rosalia’s Interview


Posted by: Angela Calla

Having the support and guidance you need when making the largest purchase of your life is invaluable.  Listen and read Rosalia’s interview with Angela and Mannie of The Mortgage Show on CKNW.


1.      How did you hear about us?

I was looking for options as a new home buyer and I listen to CKNW everyday and thought I would give The Angela Calla Mortgage Team a call, I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. 

2.      What inspired you to call us?

When I started researching and talking with other people who have gone through the mortgage process The Angela Calla Mortgage Team always seemed to pop up and that solidified my comfort in calling her team.

3.      How was your experience?

I cannot tell you how nervous and scared I was about mortgages and trying to understand them! Angela’s Team was so understanding with all my questions and nervousness throughout the whole process. They basically held my hand throughout the whole process and with all the emails I had – there were many – and always got a quick and informative response. 

4.      How did it compare to consulting elsewhere prior to moving forward with us getting a mortgage?

I did consult with my bank to see if they had any deals for me since I have been banking with them my whole life. At first I thought they were looking out for my best interest and were going to give me the best deal possible. I was wrong about the banks, they were very against me going to a mortgage broker and said they they “would not be best for someone like me as a first time buyer”  The bank was trying to sell me other products and actually quoted me a .22% higher fixed rate than what I could get with Angela’s team. I am so happy that I chose The Angela Calla Mortgage Team to help me as they were very forthcoming and honest with information and encouraged me to inform myself, ask questions and to make the best decision for myself. 

5.      How much money did we save you and how will this help your current life stage?

The Angela Calla Team asked me about my future goals in home ownership, even though I am a first time buyer I have goals to purchase a bigger home in the next 3-5 years and we put a plan together to save my boyfriend’s first time buyer opportunity for our next purchase. This will save me thousands in the future for when we need the savings the most. 

6.      What advice would you have for others tuning into the program?

I have recommended The Angela Calla Team to other friends that I know who are also first time home buyers and currently have a mortgage, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain when dealing with them. Even if you are 6 months or a year away from buying, they can help you with the information that you need to be well informed with the mortgage process.They will also point out things that you would never think of, which is why they are the experts.
