Vancouver Mortgage Expertise to Save You
Time + Money
Purchasing a new home or recreation getaway? Looking to refinance your home to renovate or buy an investment property? Exciting times! But why pay more for your mortgage than you have to?
Beyond banks, there are many mortgage products available to you through credit unions, trust companies, and mono-line lenders that specialize in mortgages. Sounds overwhelming right? And that’s exactly why so many homeowners pay thousands of dollars in unnecessary mortgage interest every year.
Since 1997, the Synergy Mortgage Team has helped hundreds of British Columbia homebuyers get the right mortgage solutions through our network of lender partners, earning recognition from Canada’s very best mortgage providers.
In fact, we make it our business to save you time and money by providing unbiased, professional advice while sourcing the best financing options for your unique needs at the best mortgage rates and terms. We work for you, not the lenders, and in the majority of cases, we’re paid by the lenders so there is no cost to you.
With one free consultation and single application we can get you pre-approved, start shopping around to all the lenders, filter through mortgage products, and recommend financing solutions that make the most sense for you. From negotiating on your behalf right through closing, it’s our job to make this process easy and stress-free.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Chana quickly fell in love with real estate, purchasing her first condominium when she was 19. It was $75,000 with an interest rate of 12%.

Chana actively volunteers in her community, including the Board of Directors for Hebrew Free Loan Association of Vancouver. She loves long Vancouver seawall walks, entertaining friends, and travelling.
Dorothy Bried, MB

Given Dorothy’s family roots in real estate development, you could say she was born for it. Dorothy started her career in property management, then went into development real estate sales. After going back to school to earn a Bachelor of Arts at UBC, she joined Synergy Mortgage in 2004 and has since been certified as a mortgage broker by the Mortgage Brokers Institute.
A busy mother of two, Dorothy lives in the Fraser Valley with her husband where they also enjoy golfing and biking.
Coming from the world of performance sports coaching, Leo has a natural knack for organization and helping people understand complex situations. With two Olympics and 20 years in the coaching field under his belt, high pressure and big decisions are everyday occurrences for Leo.
Born in the UK, Leo has lived in cities ranging from London to Calgary and Whistler, but now calls Vancouver home alongside his partner. And lucky for us, he’s also chosen to trade in the management of national team sport budgets to bring his skills to the mortgage market.
Leo’s loving west coast life, where you’ll often find him biking, snowboarding, cooking, or researching his new favourite craft beer.
After immigrating from South Africa in 1994, Alan experienced how change can be challenging, and after becoming a successful restauranteur, he gained a first-hand understanding of the uncertainty of risk.
Being on a national karate team as a young adult taught Alan how to respond to competition, and becoming a father fostered a core value for the security of owning a home.
It’s the culmination of Alan’s life and journey that led him to becoming a mortgage broker, and we’re thrilled to have him on the Synergy Mortgage team.
