Why partner with us? With over 21 years of experience working specifically with alternative deals, we have developed a superior knowledge base that we are eager to share with our brokers to help them win. We offer the stability and rigor of a Schedule I bank with the flexibility and understanding of an alternative lender delivered with an old-school focus on relationships. As a lender partner, we offer a number of unique points of value you won’t find anywhere else: fast turnaround on commitments, an extensive field of lending areas, and a genuine commitment to getting the story and seeing beyond paperwork to get your deals done are just a few.
We are also relentless about uncovering new and unique ways to support our brokers. We share tools every week to help you get more deals funded, grow your business, and provide extra value to your clients – which in turn helps you look good! We know you need quick and easy access to our lending areas and how to order an appraisal. We post resources like rental income worksheets and income verification requirements. Everything we do, we do with our brokers in mind.
Treating your clients well is another one of our passions. While innovation and automation in banking has been non-stop, we know that no amount of automation can replace human touch. That includes having honest, respectful conversations with customers about their Bridgewater Bank mortgage without any bank-speak. It’s part of our unbanklike promise. What’s more, our values, which we share with our parent company the Alberta Motor Association, are rooted in a commitment to provide superior, personal, expert service with integrity.
In a numbers industry, our top priority is people. Try us and see for yourself.
The communication was excellent, the pricing favourable and the underwriter worked with me to get the deal done and come up with solutions when we encountered a few hiccups.
My client required special consideration based on circumstances beyond their control. Bridgewater carefully considered all angles and made a strong argument to risk analysis for a positive response. Success!
They were exceptional at getting this challenging deal done on time.
In Bridgewater Bank's case, they were very clear on everything. It gave my client the opportunity to get this short-term solution done which will help her future immensely.
My underwriter keeps me updated at all stages and helps get the deal done! They are wonderful to work with.
Bridgewater Bank has a very positive attitude and quick responses to my emails, and quick approvals are such a pleasant surprise in this rushed, high demand market.
I received commitment within 24 hours and the underwriter was always quick to respond to my emails and inquiries.
Great underwriting, make-sense lending, flexible with documentation as long as it provided details, great LTV.
The BDM was always available when I needed [them] the most. The support was there prior to the approval and even right at closing when the client was at the lawyer's office.
My BDM and underwriters at Bridgewater Bank make it clear, by their efforts, they are willing to work to help put a deal together.
