Qualifications: I have been a mortgage adviser for about 20 years (same age as my eldest daughter!) and as described I have experience in both local mortgage broker firms and the corporate environment but I know from experience I am most comfortable working in an environment where clients (can) become friends and I am able to offer honest and trusted advice in plain English (non jargon) way with the ability to select products for both mortgages and protection from the whole of the market and therefore feel truly independent. I also feel extremely satisfied when I see the client move into their dream home or save money (via a remortgage or debt consolidation) via a mortgage that I have advised and recommended or they say they feel more secure about their financial position by wanting to proceed with a recommendation I have made for life/critical illness cover or income protection. I am CeMap  qualified and hold a Diploma in Financial Regulated Protection.
