New To OOE: Right Place, Right Time For SJC Financial

By Quinn Abugov

As the winds of change blow through Old Ottawa East’s Main Street corridor, the rapidly evolving residential and commercial footprint is beginning to attract a variety of unique new businesses to the landscape.

One of the commercial newcomers, SJC Financial, which recently opened at 242 Main Street, offers a-la-carte mortgage services to individuals and businesses of all stripes. In a community with both the Corners on Main and Greystone Village developments either constructed or underway, Old Ottawa East and SJC seem like a perfect fit.

SJC offers a wide range of mortgage solutions and strives to offer packages and options for people of all ages and demographics, a factor that Steven Cleiri, company President and Founder, feels will lend itself well to the diverse mosaic of OOE residents. “With Old Ottawa East, you have a wide variety of people looking for different services. You have the aging folks who are thinking about retirement with considerable equity in their home, looking to sell and make money,” says Cleiri. “On the other hand, you have people coming into the area who are facing
challenges getting financing, and we help them out as well. We will always find a solution for our clients.”

SJC has relationships with over 60 lenders, an aspect that Clieri believes allows his company to find the best solution for each of their clients.

SJC offers services for first time home buyers, people looking to refinance their homes and alternative lending options for clients who’ve had some financial challenges. The company also offers private and construction financing, making it “a truly one-stop-shop for everyone’s mortgage needs,” says Clieri. He added that SJC’s clients can also obtain 8% to 9% yields on real estate assets held in nonregistered accounts, RRSPs, TFSAs and RRIFs.

Born and raised in the Alta Vista area, Clieri has fond memories of Old Ottawa East. “Growing up south of the community, I naturally would drive down Main Street and I always thought it was a great artery for the city. So when I came to this location and decided to pick it up, it just seemed like a natural fit.” Clieri says. “My goal in coming here is to reach out to more people in the community and get them familiar with what we offer.”

Clieri has grown his business from just himself to three agents and a full-time office manager within a short span, and he intends to continue to grow symbiotically with the Old Ottawa East. He welcomes OOE residents to visit SJC’s website at https://www.sjcfinancial.com/for more information on the company’s services or to drop into the SJC office at 242 Main Street during business hours to speak with Steven or another agent about the company’s specialized expertise and financial products.
