Experience & Qualifications
I am Cemap Qualified
Residential mortgages, personal protection and life assurance, group and business protection and equity release. I also specialize in UK Holiday Home mortgages and Holiday Home Buy to Lets
I’ve worked in the mortgage industry for 34 years, 25 of those with C&G working as a Branch Manager in Swindon, Cirencester, Stroud and Devizes. I am now building a busy and successful Mortgage Advice practice working in partnership with Paul Wallace and John Moss, both Chartered Financial Planners who major in other key areas of Financial Planning. We have worked with IFS UK Ltd for over 5 years working with some of the best known accountancy and solicitor practices in Gloucestershire. I have a growing client base from all over the country. I always aim to communicate honestly and promptly with my customers and where possible deliver what I have agreed with the client.
I am passionate about giving really top quality helpful home purchase or remortgage advice to customers. Working in the mortgage field has taught me the importance of making sure that we all have the correct insurances and I am an avid believer in the benefits of Income Protection and Critical Illness plans where appropriate.
I am also a specialist in the Equity Release field. These loans are a last resort product for many and I recognize the care I have to apply as an adviser in this area.
I love my work and enjoy helping customers. Home Finance is not a straight forward area for any move and I believe my customers need a helping hand. In general trying to arrange a mortgage from a comparison website does not tell the whole story and seeking professional advice may well save customers time, heartache and money in many cases.
If you are First Time Buyer, or a mover looking for a residential or buy to let or just want to assess the feasibility of a remortgage please contact me by email (above) or mobile for a no obligation chat and I will be pleased to talk through your situation with you.

Mark provided great end to end advice regarding the best mortgage product, based on our needs and what we wanted.As first time buyers a lot of things seemed daunting, however the worries about the mortgage were alleviated by Mark, who was more than willing to answer any queries we had

Mark was excellent. He has over the last few years arranged 3 separate mortgages for us. He was very supportive and knowledgeable, I wouldn\'t consider using any other person. Would (and have) recommend highly.
