Mortgage Specialists

The Biggar Team, Mortgage Specialists

While attending school I discovered a passion for customer service. My mom was a mortgage specialist when I was growing up and she encouraged me to follow in her footsteps. I have been a mortgage specialist since 2006 and created a team of professionals to help me assist clients with their mortgage needs. As BMO Bank of Montreal Mortgage Specialists, we are available 24/7 to provide service when our clients need it.

People are not always available during regular bank business hours, so our team is set up to accommodate them. We can work with clients over the phone, at our office, at their home, or whatever is convenient. We believe in being straight-forward, honest, having a quick response time and doing the little things that make all the difference. My hard work and dedication to my clients has led me to become a member of BMO’s Diamond Club, a top 10% mortgage specialist in Canada. We also offer exclusive military mortgage rates and features customized to meet the unique needs of the Canadian Defence Community. The mortgage rates are extended to RCMP members, former members, retired members and family members. The Biggar Team has the knowledge and a variety of products to help you finance your new home. Give us a call to find out what sets us apart, there are no costs or obligations to speak with us.

Krista Rumberg, Mortgage Broker

Hi, I’m Krista. It’s my pleasure to walk you through each step of the homebuying and mortgage processes – from determining the amount of mortgage for which you qualify to ensuring you have everything in place on closing day and beyond – answering any questions you may have along the way.

And if you aren’t ready to make a purchase just yet, I can help you build a budget, establish or repair your credit, and assist you on your road to homeownership.

Whether you’re buying your very first home, moving to a new property, purchasing a vacation or investment property, looking to buy out your ex-spouse following a separation/divorce or renewing or refinancing an existing mortgage, I can help stretch your hard-earned money as far as possible for every mortgage you undertake.

I’m passionate about mortgage brokering and truly helping my clients. It’s my job to listen to your story, evaluate your needs and find the best lender to turn your mortgage goals into reality.

My services are typically free to my clients. I get paid by the lender once your mortgage funds, so it’s always in my best interest to match you with the mortgage that best meets your needs.

I’ve been brokering for more than a decade and enjoy the privilege of helping people transition from the dream of homeownership to becoming a first-time homebuyer and then purchasing your next dream home. Each step is as rewarding as the next as I get to experience the emotions through the eyes of my clients and ensure your money is working for you regardless of what life stage you have entered.

My motto is: Knowledge is Power. I take pride in staying on top of the latest mortgage rules, lenders, products and market data so that my clients can rest easy knowing you’re receiving the very best mortgage product and rate catered to your specific financial situation.

A resident of Spruce Grove, my mortgage services also focus on Stoney Plain, Sherwood Park, Edmonton and surrounding areas.

I’m available to answer any questions you have at any time.
