I work with Canadians from coast to coast and my website and blog will equip you with information, (candid) commentary, and an array of easy to use tools.

Here is what you can expect if you contact me:

  • Personalized service from an experienced industry expert
    (no call centres and no annoying voicemail instructions).

This was the second time we have worked with Dave and in both cases he has been professional, knowledgeable, and accessible. I would recommend Dave to anyone who needs assistance with their mortgage!

Ryan and Wioleta S.

David was a pleasure to work with. As a first time home buyer he not only answered but anticipated all questions I would have and very patiently walked me through everything. He made the entire process as easy and smooth as possible.

Stephen S.

We thought that getting a first mortgage would be overwhelming. Our experience with David LaRock however was outstanding and he made the process very smooth. He can make things very simple, but we had a lot of questions and he was able to speak deeply on all of the subjects that mattered to us. From refinancing strategies to variable impact on mortgage insurance across different down payment levels. He's very knowledgeable, but informal and friendly as well. We've already recommended Dave to others. Hands down our best partner in our new home purchase.

Heather K. & Max R.

Dave reached out proactively to let us know that we could save thousands of dollars by changing mortgage lenders. He made the process seamless, and we continue to be very happy with our experience with the Integrated Mortgage Planners Inc. team.

Alex S. and Stacey B.

To anyone considering arranging a new or second mortgage, this is the company to choose. There are other who advertise the "best rates" on the radio, but those companies only provide the same or higher rates than Integrated Mortgage Planners. This company provides the best rates, walks you through the process, gets the mortgage commitment from the lender, and everything proceeds smoothly from there. If you want integrity, consistency, and no surprises, please do yourself a favor and contact David Larock at Integrated Mortgage Planners. My wife and I arranged a mortgage through David, and we and our lawyer were very happy with the result. You won't do much better than getting a mortgage through David.

George and Jacqueline C.

My experience with Dave at Integrated Mortgage Planners was excellent. He is amazingly knowledgeable, not just with mortgages per se, but with global and national economic conditions that affect mortgage issues. I would highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. Definitely 5 Star Rating!

Brian and Anna G.

This was my first time buying a house on my own. David was a fantastic resource, he patiently walked me through every step of the transaction making the learning curve easy to handle. He was positive and professional throughout.

Margaret L.

Amazing service. It was really quick and David knew exactly what he was talking about and most importantly delivered everything that he promised. This was my second time dealing with a broker and the experience from previous was night and day. David was polite, straight forward and didn’t waste any time. Also he submitted it to only one institution and not multiple- so credit didn’t get dinged.

Ash B. and Umee S.

I found IMP's service very helpful in providing a good cross section of the products available to me at my time of request as well as the tailoring of these product options for my needs was accomplished quickly and precisely.

The follow up was prompt and the deal closed when and how it was expected to.

All in all an excellent service experience from start to finish.

Thanks Dave.

Chris V.

I would strongly recommend the services of Dave Larock and Integrated Mortgage Planners without hesitation. They were able to effectively deal with a very complicated financial situation and create attractive and workable mortgage and financing options on an expeditious basis. We felt extremely comfortable in Dave's hands throughout the financing process and the final result certainly illustrated how valuable Dave's services had been.

Sean K. and Michelle D.

Amazing service! Dave did everything we hoped for, he kept my family stress free through it all and always updated us on everything! Thanks for the outstanding service!

Valentina M.

Service was exceptional - very knowledgeable, always responsive and attentive, and provided quality guidance and alternatives to work through a number of complications during a very unique and long process. We have already recommended Dave to friends and will absolutely be back for any future mortgage needs.

Tim B and Stephanie O.

Dave Larock helped us obtain our mortgage for our first home. Dave was easy to communicate with and always responded in a timely manner. He is knowledgeable and provided us with all the information we needed to select the best mortgage product for us. Also, Dave has access to a large selection of mortgage providers, and was able to get us an excellent rate! We would definitely work with Dave again for future mortgages and highly recommend his services.

Travis P. and Jennifer N.

Working with Dave was a great experience. He made the process simple and straight-forward, got us a great rate, and helped us feel a lot more confident about the whole process. I would definitely work with Dave again in the future!

Natasha D. and Leslie B.

Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with. He patiently explained every part of the mortgage application process to us (and as first-time home-buyers, we needed a lot of enlightening), he kept us constantly up to date with the status of our file, and he got us a fantastic rate. Very highly recommend.

Kevin and Warrena W.

As a first time home buyer I felt like I was in the right hands with Dave. The patience and confidence he provided was very much appreciated. He provided sound advice and we felt like he was looking out for our best interests. I would recommend him to friends.

Prashant G and Jyoti K

Dave came recommended to us by two friends who had worked with him in the past. We gave him a close-to-impossible task and a very challenging home equity financing project and he guided us through every step along the way. He not only got us a better rate but also with our preferred lendor.

Kevin M. and Heather D.

David is a very knowledgeable and competent mortgage broker. He managed to pull together the procurement of our mortgage in a matter of a few days. He was available to answer any questions that arose immediately.

R. Chopra

David Larock knows his stuff. It was our first purchase ever and it was quite stressful. At the beginning of the process, there was no pressure from David. He shared all our options and the pros and cons of each. To be honest, I felt like when I was using the banks, I felt that I was lied to.

Bryan T. and Senna H.

David and his team went above and beyond to answer our questions and concerns we had and made sure we understood everything in all the fine print, we will continue to use David's service on our next purchase.

Adam P and Kristen V.

I really appreciate all the information provided by David which helped me make a confident decision for my new mortgage. Not only did I get a great price, I understand the process much better now. I liked that I was able to communicate with David either by phone or email. I was often very pleasantly surprised to get very fast responses to my questions even after regular business hours. During the whole process I always felt David was giving me the best advise for me and I never felt pressured. Thanks so much for taking such good care of me!

Anna C.

Dave and Melanie were a pleasure to deal with - knowledgeable, pro-active in providing information and updates, really prompt in responding to our queries and made sure that we got the best rate possible. Will be going back to IMP again in the future!

Carly and Avin B.

Well. My real estate deal was beginning to crumble within the last week of closing. The stress was building. People weren't cooperating. My agents were disagreeing. But through it all David and Melanie were there when I needed an answer or explanation or an opinion. Dave was very organized which made things so clear and simple, in what seemed a very complicated process. And when conflict arose and the winds started blowing, Dave remained professional and personal, an impressive balance. Things were getting pretty bad at one point where I started doubting the people around me and was preparing for the worst. "This deal is going to fall apart and I am going to end up in court and lose a lot of money..." But Dave just kept pushing ahead no matter what obstacle presented itself. He always kept me well informed of my options and gave me a clear picture of what was happening. He didn't hide things, either good or bad. I was confident he had my best interests at the forefront throughout this experience. And Melanie was a cool gentle breeze on a hot sweaty day (which they were, I worked outside) always so kind and calm and ready to help. Thank you Dave for standing firm and allowing me to lean on you so heavily in "the perfect storm." You were more than a mortgage agent, I feel like we re companions after a long adventure. I'm kinda sad we won't be talking anymore lol. May God bless you and Melanie. Thank you (bows low in respect and gratitude).

Derek and Angelyn C.

David Larock provided exceptional service and much-needed counsel. An industry expert, his knowledge and calm guidance helped us at every step of the way. It was so much more than just getting the best rate available. I couldn't recommend David and his team highly enough.

Jonathan B and Wendy M.

The team at Integrated Mortgage Planners got us a great rate and helped us source service providers that I wouldn't have expected our mortgage agent to have in their repertoire. Call them. You'll be glad you did.

Tara L. and Steve N.

We were thrilled with the very high level of insight, knowledge and service offered by David Larock of Integrated Mortgage Planners. We will not hesitate to continue to use David Larock and even before our deal was done, we referred good friends and will continue doing so.

Daniel B. and Sarah F.

David was very good at explaining the process of obtaining a mortgage. He responded quickly when contacted and was always pleasant to deal with. David kept his eye on the rates and was able to obtain a lower rate than the original quote, which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend David's services.

Brooke W.

I contacted Dave regarding doing a vacant land purchase because I read his long weekend cottage woes blog in which he described his detailed knowledge of knowing exactly how to purchase vacation properties. The seller of the property I wanted had already told me there were several unsuccessful attempts at purchasing the property so I knew there was no point in just calling anyone. This property is water access, on a private lake, no power, no water, buildings of no appreciable value, a bit remote... a mortgage nightmare... Dave actually made the purchase seamless and seem easy. Awesome!

Ian C.

Thank you for making this process run smoothly. Much appreciated!

Cheryl G.

Dave Larock was fantastic to deal with. What a professional. Eden & I were very happy with his services.
