Your one-stop mortgage shop for TRUSTED MORTGAGE KNOWLEDGE
I have lived in Port Coquitlam for the past 27 years with my husband Mike who also supports me in my business on the back end by providing marketing support. We have 3 children and are proud grandparents. I am a passionate animal lover, and love to travel and explore new places and cultures. During the winter, you can find my husband and me skiing the beautiful BC slopes or vacationing in our family vacation home in Phoenix, Arizona. Summers are spent exploring beautiful BC and it’s many hiking trails, local parks, lakes and of course visiting and supporting our local farmers market every Thursday. We are avid supporters of our community. We recently adopted a rescue dog chihuahua after losing our beloved chihuahua Sparky in December 2017 who we shared 10 blissful years with.
As passionate as I am about my family and life, I am just as passionate about my job and business as a Mortgage Broker. I started working in the banking world back in 1994 with VanCity, where I held various lending and management positions. After many happy years in my various roles at VanCity, I decided to pursue my passion in mortgages and focus on my client’s needs and objectives first. This ultimately led me to become an Independent Mortgage Broker in 2006 and open my own successful, Award winning and locally recognized brokerage firm “The Mortgage Centre TMK Team” in 2009.
I offer my clients solid objective advice and am an industry leader when it comes to providing excellent service for all your mortgage needs. My knowledge and experience help me to quickly determine your mortgage requirements and allow me to provide you with financing solutions that work. Whether you are considering buying a home, refinancing, switching lenders or purchasing a revenue/vacation property, you can expect the best rates with fast, friendly, professional service and a mortgage package that is tailored to suit your personal goals.
Your time is a precious commodity, and I am an expert in taking care of the financing details on your behalf – with your best interest in mind. I will shop your mortgage options to a number of leading Canadian financial institutions, many of which Canadians have trusted for generations, and find the mortgage that’s best for you. Plus, I have access to broker-only mortgage lenders, which could offer mortgage rates and features that you may not otherwise have access to. What’s more, I take your needs and goals into consideration when shopping for your mortgage. I understand that mortgages aren’t a one-size fits all proposition. YOUR mortgage is the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime, so I will continue to be there throughout the duration of your mortgage offering annual reviews and answering any future questions you may have. Consider me your Mortgage Planner serving Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, and throughout the Lower Mainland and BC. I work for YOU, not the banks.
About The Mortgage Centre
We are an Award Winning Brokerage, once again being voted as the TOP 50 Mortgage Brokerages across Canada in 2020 by Canadian Mortgage Professionals magazine. When Milka started her brokerage in 2009, the vision was to unite like-minded, hard-working, dedicated brokers. Her goal has never been the quantity of brokers but quality. Over time, we have become a family that enjoys working, learning and having fun together. The team is focused not only on empowering and helping each other, but also our community where we live and work. Continuous education in this ever-changing broker landscape is key to providing the best possible service to our clients. We enroll in accredited courses, conferences and steady lender meetings to understand the best solutions to our diverse clients’ needs, through all the stages of their lives.
The True rewards come from giving back to our diverse interests such as community events, fundraisers, providing food and clothing for local shelters, SPCA, or simply by assisting clients to fulfill their financial goals even when it means not getting paid. Simply put, we put clients first.
We are often featured in our local papers and have been nominated as a top small business by our community. We have received the TD community partnership award in the past for our community efforts. We have also been fortunate to receive the reader-nominated broker of the year choice awards along with many other acknowledgements. We are in it for the long run, where the common goal is to build trusting relationships, long-term, because that is what it is really all about, isn’t it?
Collaborated with Milka on my mortgage and refinancing this past week. She knows her industry, explains details and information clearly, and alleviates any issues or concerns.
She's very personable and easy to approach as well, just a nice person to deal with who will have your back !
I have been working with Milka since 2006. She is very professional and dedicated and always prompts to respond. She is extremely knowledgeable and a valuable source of guidance and support as she takes you through the process of Mortgage financing from start to finish. She really goes above and beyond for her clients and is committed to ensuring her clients always come out on top. I have already had 4 mortgages and 2 refinance with her since 2006 and she always gets me the best rates in the market. If you are looking for someone with great expertise who is helpful and always available every step of the way to help you complete your mortgage you must contact Milka.
Milka did a great job for me! She has great experience dealing with independent business people and contractors, those of us who don't fit easily into the boxes of conventional banking models. Even though my first time home purchase was a relatively small one, I never felt as if I were being treated any differently from her multi-million dollar clients. She patiently held my hand throughout the whole process and ironed out the wrinkles along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my friends and colleagues.
I absolutely recommend Milka to my friends and family. This is our second time using her service as our mortgage broker.
Simply The Best Customer Service Ever!
Milka is so knowledgeable, caring and easy-going. I felt like she always had our best interests in mind. I would recommend her to anyone. She knows her stuff and will take the time to teach and explain things to you. She made the stress of buying a new home a little less so. Thank you, Milka!
Milka rocks! If you want a mortgage broker who does all the heavy lifting and is quick - making decision making and arrangement easy - Milka is the broker for you!!! She worked so hard...even for a 0.05% difference. We love that she's a local to Tri-Cities and was able to refer us to local services (i.e. notary). Seriously...one-stop shopping with this lady and so efficient and knowledgable.
I am a first time home buyer with challenging finances (self-employed musician, etc.) I tried multiple mortgage brokers, Milka gave me the best deal and the best mortgage that worked for me. She was quick, thorough and very professional.
The best broker out there! When you are a busy realtor, you need to make sure you're clients are in the best hands~
We have been working with Milka several times for the past few years. she has been very helpful and always response questions right away. Would definitely recommend!
Milka really helped me out with a new mortgage when I needed to cash out some of the equity in my home for an investment. As a small business owner it can be difficult to get a mortgage, but Milka was able to get exactly what I wanted! I highly recommend her.
Milka was great. she worked tirelessly to get us the best rate, while paying close attention to all our contractual requirements. she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend her services as mortgage broker, extraordinaire.
We started working with Milka in 2003 when we purchased our first home and have used Milka on a total of seven property purchases since. We have found Milka to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and responsive and we keep going back to her because she delivers great results. We highly recommend Milka Lukacevic as a mortgage broker.
Milka was extremely helpul with our mortgage renewal. She has excellent knowledge of who the best lenders are and what the best rates are, and helped explain what makes some lenders better than others.
