We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our production team and explain how we work together to help you through the entire mortgage process.

Who are we?

Neighbourhood Dominion Lending Centres is an independently owned and operated franchise of Dominion Lending Centres Inc.- owned by Gary Meger and Bill Nugent. We are one of Dominion Lending Centres'  top  franchises in Canada, with currently more than 75 licensed mortgage brokers, agents and assistants across Ontario.

On a daily basis, Gary wears two hats - one where he originates mortgages with the help of his team and, in a second capacity, which sees Gary manage our top-producing team of agents across Ontario. We are extremely proud of the quality and integrity of our people.

Gary has successfully completed well over 12,000 mortgages since he started his brokering career in 1983. In 2010, Gary received the prestigious Mortgage Broker of the Year Award at the annual CMP Canadian Mortgage Awards - an annual award that is given to just one of 15,000+ mortgage brokers and agents across Canada. This is the finest recommendation he could ever ask for from his peers in the mortgage industry. And in 2011, Gary won the AMP Award for Canada, competing with over 4,000 agents. It is a highly esteemed award.

Gary has a passion for the business and truly loves what he does. He actively originates mortgages along with Danielle Cawley, his daughter, and Helen West. Both are fully licensed, experienced mortgage agents who work together to ensure the highest possible level of service - both prior to and after the closing of your mortgage. In addition, Maureen Montgomery helps with all of our digital communications and educational programs.

Gary continues to attend conferences throughout North America, researching the latest trends and information on the mortgage market. Over the past several years, Gary has been working with one of the top mortgage coaches in the world through Building Champions. He strives to balance his business and personal life, which is difficult to do in this industry.                                  

How are we different from other brokerage firms and lenders?

We want to find out what is important to you, our customer. We then take a financial planning approach to your needs, ultimately developing a customized mortgage strategy that is right for you.

We are extremely straightforward and transparent about how we operate. This ensures that you will know everything there is to know about your mortgage options.

The past 17 years have seen us develop and implement industry- leading systems to ensure your mortgage process is as uneventful as possible (we can never say stress free due to the nature of the business)! Our business has been built 100% on a foundation of referrals from our satisfied clients. We do not advertise at all, which makes earning your trust that much more important to us.

Our motto of "high trust, high touch and high tech" is a reflection of how we operate.
