What People Are Saying About Ed

“Ed Collins and his team were so thorough, patient, and informative throughout our mortgage process. We recently purchased our first home and found Ed’s expertise and help to be invaluable. We began as complete newbies to the mortgage process, and emerged with confidence, new knowledge, and our dream home. Ed was always so communicative 24/7, answered every single question we had with such kindness and patience, and went above and beyond to make sure we understood everything. Not only did we successfully complete a home purchase, but our financial literacy is so much higher now thanks to Ed. We can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Ed Collins at Province Mortgage was fantastic. Even during trying times he made out home dreams come true. Thanks to Ed and his team we were able to close on our scheduled closing!! Thank you Ed you’re the best in the biz!”

-John S.

“As a first time home buyer doing this on my own, I started this process with little knowledge and a lot of apprehension. From the very first time I spoke with Ed I felt very comfortable and assured that this dream of owning a home would become a reality. Ed was always available whenever I needed him and made each step seem less complicated and less overwhelming than I could have imagined. Purchasing a home can be a tiring process, on top of that buying during a pandemic (you’d have to be nuts) but Ed made the process seamless for me and I was able to close on my home quickly! I also appreciated that Ed helped me to weigh my options through out the process he didn’t just hand me a loan he worked hard to get my interest rate low and he made sure any decisions I made were well informed. Ed was recommended to me through friends who worked with him and I would also recommend him to someone starting the home buying process!”

-Allie K.

“I refinanced my home through Ed and have no negative experiences. Ed comprehensively described the process and all of the forms at a very understandable level. He very promptly answered all of my phone calls, e-mails, text messages, etc. whenever I had a question about something during any time of the day. He demonstrated honesty in many facets including carefully reviewing and explaining my loan application and closing documents with me to make sure that I was fine with everything. He made sure that I provided the necessary documents and was well prepared for the process – this was proven by the quick time frame in which my application was approved – 3 weeks.”
