Serving Mortgage Clients in BC from my office in Williams Lake.  

Diane Buchanan

Hello, I’m Diane, I appreciate you taking the time to visit my page. Here is a little bit about me! I started working in the mortgage industry in 2000 as my husband at the time was already a successful broker and needed an assistant. I was reluctant at first as I had 2 sons under the age of 5, but I found that I loved helping people finance homes and brokering wasn’t a 9-5 job so I could still spend time with my young family. Fast forward 15 years and I still love what I do.

My clients appreciate that I am available to answer their questions not only during regular business hours but outside of normal hours as well. I have been known to answer emails/calls/texts up to 8 pm at night and sometimes later, depending on their schedules. My clients will never have a ‘bank’ experience when working with me!

Working with the Canadian Mortgage Experts, the #1 Dominion Centres Franchise in Canada allows me to provide more options to my clients. Better mortgage products means happy clients!

On a personal note, in the winter you will find me watching the Canucks, while in the summer I am cheering on the BC Lions. And just so you don’t think I spend all my time in front of the TV or at the stadium, I also enjoy spending time on the golf course.

Thank you so much, if it wasn’t for you and your brilliant persistence we would never have gotten to purchase.  We went to the bank to open a joint account and the young man said, “Wow, how did you get this interest rate”? That was pretty cool coming from the bank!

We love your tenacity and positive attitude and thank you from the bottom if our hearts. Diane, you’re one incredible, totally awesome woman!!!!



Thank you so much for all of your help over the years – we always recommend you to our friends and will continue to do so….



I want to thank you for working so hard to make this happen, you have truly made a difference for my family.



Mortgage Services

Home Purchase

Whether you are looking to buy your first home or your hundredth, I will make sure you feel comfortable throughout the entire process and get the mortgage product that best suits your individual needs. I work with all types of home buyers from first timers to investors with multiple properties. If you are looking to live in it, I can help you finance it! (Within reason of course).



Are you looking to refinance your property to access some of the equity you have built up over the years? Maybe you want to consolidate some debts, start a new business, renovate your home, buy a vacation or investment property… regardless of the reason, I will discuss all of your mortgage refinancing options with you and help you find the mortgage that suits your needs!




The best time to start looking at renewing your existing mortgage is 120 days before your maturity date. If your existing lender has sent you a renewal offer in the mail or if they have called you on the phone, the first thing you should do is contact me for advice. Never just sign the bank’s offer, there is ALWAYS room to negotiate. I’m here to help you, so that you don’t have to do the negotiations alone!


Looking to figure out roughly what you might qualify for on a mortgage? Here are a few different calculators that should do the trick. However if you are seriously looking to purchase, calculators will get you in the ballpark, but having me look at your financial situation by completing a mortgage application will let you know exactly where you stand! 


Here are a few of the lenders we have developed excellent relationships with, let’s figure out which one has the best products to offer you!
