Karli de Vries Shih



Since 2005, Karli Shih has helped property owners successfully navigate the ever-changing residential and commercial mortgage lending landscape.

Karli secures financing for both residential and commercial clients drawing from her own experience, and by leveraging her team of residential and commercial professionals. She helps her clients maximize their real estate investment value through institutional, mezzanine and private financing. Access to her lender network provides a wide array of options from which to choose in identifying the greatest savings for her clients as they purchase or refinance property.

Karli holds an undergraduate degree in Arts from The University of British Columbia and a Sales and Marketing Diploma from the British Columbia Institute of Technology.

She is a Mom of two unstoppable boys, and when she isn’t singing her clients’ praises to prospective lenders, she loves skiing, triathlon sports, the mountains, and the water.

How I do it?

Each of my clients has a unique story. My goal is to listen first, then identify strategies that will assist my clients in reaching their goals.

I apply a centralized underwriting process and recommend only the highest quality lenders, which saves my clients time and stress. Using a comprehensive strategic approach includes, wherever possible, the advice and knowledge of several of our professional partners.

From real estate to investment advice, estate planning to insurance, I have you covered!

  • Purchasing your first home.
  • Seniors' financing
  • Purchasing an investment property
  • Debt consolidation
  • Commercial lending

Why I do it?

Mortgage lending is complex and often stressful for clients. For these reasons, I believe that my clients expect unbiased financial advice centred around strategies that increase cash flow and peace of mind.

How we got started

The concept of a professional mortgage company in Canada was not ours; that credit belongs to the founders of Dominion Lending Centres - Canada's national mortgage company. However, the concept for The Professionals launched a short time ago when we recognized an opportunity to partner with like-minded professionals who have a desire to provide advice and solutions...from real estate to investment planning, insurance to estate planning.

We are available to meet with you in person or by various technology platforms.

We live and work in cities throughout the Vancouver region and the Fraser Valley. Our office locations are conveniently located for an interview or we can use various technology platforms to connect with you.
