Duncan Gardiner joined Great Pacific Mortgage and Investments in 2018, following a successful career as an Account Executive with the Victoria Royals Hockey Club where he serviced clients across Vancouver Island for over 12 years. Duncan assists his clients in a variety of mortgage scenarios and provides them with professional, impartial advice to help them find the mortgage product that best suits their financial goals and budget.
Duncan enjoys helping first time home buyers navigate the home buying process and takes satisfaction in educating them in the intricacies of becoming homeowners.

Duncan also works with homeowners looking to utilize their equity for home renovations, purchasing investment properties, upgrading their principal residence, or even taking advantage of low mortgage interest rates so that they can invest their equity and maximize their TFSA and RRSP contributions.
Duncan also assists other mortgage brokers throughout British Columbia in more complex files, by finding alternative mortgage solutions and using creative underwriting to help their clients find the funding they need.
