Mortgage Broker in Regina
Hi! I’m Candice Carr, Mortgage Broker in Regina. I have more than 11 years of experience originating mortgages and pride myself on making your home buying experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible! Being able to explain your mortgage options in an easy to understand manner is important to me.
I have multiple awards under my belt, including being in the top 5% of Mortgage Broker’s across the country, which means I have seen and heard every situation you could think of, and can find a solution for you. I am always thinking ahead and am a problem solver by nature. With every client I help, I am their broker for life. It’s the beginning of a long term, trusting relationship. When you call, I call you by name. The old fashioned customer service is what I strive for with every client. A relationship is formed, clients become repeat clients, and then eventually generational.
I strive for word of mouth referrals more than anything because it means someone trusts me enough to pass on my name to a person they know. They know their friend / family member or colleague will receive the same level of service they did, and I am honored to provide that service to them.
I attribute my awards to hard work which was ingrained in me my whole life, coming from a Saskatchewan born and raised, entrepreneurial family. There is still a group of people out there who value true customer service and a personal experience that becomes a long term, trusting relationship from someone who shares your values and understands what you need.
When I’m not working on mortgages, I enjoy spending time with my kids, baking, traveling, and always seem to have a renovation or re-design project on the go. I have the sweetest pups in the word, two tiny toy poodles named Minnie and Ginny.

If you know a “ball-park” value of your home, that helps! I can also get a rough estimate from a Realtor who can check some comparable properties. The actual value will be confirmed by an appraiser.
3. Determine if you have enough Equity to Refinance
In order to refinance (not including a spousal buyout) you can only borrow up to 80% of your home’s value. Value x 80% – current mortgage = the amount of funds you can have access to.
