Who's Tara Patterson?

Hello! I am Tara Patterson, and I’m thrilled to be a new member of the Valko team.

There is nothing more important to me than building meaningful relationships and providing a positive client experience. I started my career as a mortgage agent through a personal refinance experience and I have been growing in this industry for 3 years. In that time, I have been awarded Waterloo Region Record Awards for 2019 and 2020 and now 2021, and I enjoy running community events. You may have seen me around!

In previous careers I was a Commercial Underwriter for 8 years in the insurance industry however I have my ECE and a BA in Child Studies and I worked with children including operating my own home daycare as well!

My favorite thing is spending time with family and friends. I have an incredible and supportive husband and two amazing girls.  We have three rescue pets, two cats and a dog. 

I love taking photos, loud music in the car, and dance parties in the kitchen with my girls.   You can also find me binge watching Netflix and enjoying a cup of tea or a good wine.

Why Should You Use A Mortgage Agent?

Widest Variety of Lenders & Options

Helpful, Unbiased Advice

Trust, Confidence & Security

There are generally two ways to get a mortgage in Canada: From a bank or from a licensed mortgage professional.

While a bank only offers the products from their particular institution, licensed mortgage professionals send millions of dollars in mortgage business each year to Canada's largest banks, credit unions, trust companies, and financial institutions; offering their clients more choice, and access to hundreds of mortgage products! As a result, clients benefit from the trust, confidence, and security of knowing they are getting the best mortgage for their needs.

Whether you're purchasing a home for the first time, taking out equity from your home for investment or pleasure, or your current mortgage is simply up for renewal, it's important that you are making an educated buying decision with professional unbiased advice.
