Advent Mortgage Services


The McMaster Alumni Association is pleased to offer an exclusive benefit to alumni with our affinity partner, Advent Mortgage Services. Advent is Canada’s #1 ranked mortgage broker by volume (per Canadian Mortgage Professional 2013) so they consistently can negotiate the lowest rates from popular lenders, most often the same banks you go to. As an exclusive benefit to McMaster alumni, Advent will reduce the lowest rate they can find by a further .05%. To illustrate how valuable this can be, for a typical $425,000 mortgage over a 5-year term, this would increase your savings by an additional $1,000 over and above the money you would save by accessing the most competitive rates in Canada.

Whether you are a first-time buyer, or your mortgage is renewing, let Advent offer you a quote to see the money you can save.
