My husband and I chose to use Shawna MacDonald’s office for the financing of our first home because her office was quick to get back to us, offered us knowledgeable and thorough explanations of the process, and were able to connect us with other services needed to close the deal.

Working primarily with Shawna’s assistant Ashlyn Yablonski, we were able to secure a great rate. Ashlyn graciously fielded a number of calls from us as we sought clarification through the process, and kept us updated throughout it all. Ashlyn even provided us with a number of options for our lender, to make we were comfortable with our choice.

I look forward to working with Shawna’s office when our term comes due, and have no hesitation in recommending the office to others looking to buy a home.

I've now bought my first two homes with the help of Shawna MacDonald had had a great experience each time.  As a first-time buyer, every step was explained to me so I understood what was going on, and was presented every option with her expert opinion and guidance.  She also answered questions I had when it came to discharging my first mortgage when I sold my first home.  Questions were always answered quickly, and I felt like she was really invested in my succeeding.

I could not have had a better experience, or had the way paved any smoother for me.  Thanks for all your help Shawna! I will both be recommending you to friends, and using your services again in the future!


I worked with Shawna and her crew for the purchase of my first home in Dundurn 6 years ago.  Having no experience in purchasing a home, Shawna was great in walking me through the details and making the process as smooth as possible.
My 20 yr old daughter and I recently put an offer on a new home in the City and, of course I contacted Shawna again.  Everyone is so helpful and eager to answer any questions that you may have.  It was my daughter's first time getting a mortgage and everyone went through the signing process in detail so my daughter understood everything that she was signing.  

I am hoping that this will be my last home purchase as I am planning to grow some deep roots and love our new house, but will definitely be contacting Shawna when it comes to renewing our mortgage!

Being self-employed complicated things a little, but Shawna and Ashlyn were able to help us secure a mortgage at a good rate. We were first time home buyers and they helped guide us through the process. They were quick to respond by email and phone and I would recommend them for other buyers.

Shawna and her team helped us buy our first home and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. From the first phone call to the possession date, her team graciously helped us through every step. Since it was our first home, we had a lot of questions and her team always made us feel very welcome and promptly responded to each request. The daunting paperwork was suddenly understandable and completed with ease. We have already recommended Shawna to our friends and family!

I am new to Canada and JUST got my PR card.  As such, I had no credit score and therefore could not be a part of our mortgage.  I really wanted to be on the mortgage and Shawna and her team directed me on how to get a credit score (though clearly on such short notice, not a good one) as quickly as possible.  Despite what is likely the worst credit score rating one can have, my name was able to be added to the mortgage thanks to them... and they got us a great rate to boot!  Thank you so much for everything you have done for my husband and I!!

I am extremely happy that I had Shawna as my mortgage broker. She is friendly, honest, very knowledgeable, and helpful. She worked very hard for us. This was my first time buying a house and she took the time to explain everything thoroughly to me. She took good care of us and gave us helpful advice. She helped me feel confident about the decisions that I was making. Her and her team were very professional and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. I would highly recommend Shawna to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.

Shawna and her team were very helpful in assisting us in purchasing our first home. Shawna took the time to explain everything with us and answered every question we had. They were very fast at getting everything organized. Over all I would highly recommend Shawna and her crew to anyone looking for a mortgage broker.

Shawna, Ashlyn and the staff at TMG were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in assisting us with renewing our mortgage.  They secured us the best rate that even our bank could not offer.  I am grateful for their expertise in this area.  They made the process of switching lenders seamless and stress-free.  Thank you!!

To say I had a unique situation would be an understatement.  On paper I had no job and a lot of debt so clearly getting a mortgage was going to be difficult.  I certainly was unable to secure one when I tried myself.  Shawna and her team made it seem like no problem at all (though I am sure there was a lot of negotiating behind closed doors with the bank).  We just moved into our house and I can honestly say, we would not be here without her help.  Thank you so much for everything!!

I was very happy with the service Shawna and her staff provided.  Her advise helped us and they where always on top of any details that needed to be addressed.  We ended up purchasing a foreclosure that created an extra layer of difficulty when it came to the morgage approval but it ended up working out well which I know was in no small part to Shauna and her staff.  I would recommend anyone I know needing a morgage too her in a second.

Shawna and her team were great to work with for renewing our mortgage.  We used Shawna when we bought our house and didn't think twice about calling her when our mortgage was coming due for renewal. Shawna and her team answered all our questions and helped us out every step of the way.  We got a great rate on our renewal too.  We will definitely use Shawna again in future mortgage transactions and will tell others about her.
