The Mortgage Shop was created over 15 years ago by Gary Fairhall & Mike Friend after we both left the banking industry.
After humble beginnings, working out of the back of a letting agent, we have grown to employ 6 mortgage advisors and 5 support and administration staff whilst arranging 1,000s of mortgages for many satisfied clients.
This has enabled us to do repeat business year after year whilst receiving many personal referrals from our clients to assist with their friends and family. In fact many of our client’s children are now using our expertise to arrange finance to enable them to get their first foot on the property ladder!
We can offer the full ‘housing package’; by arranging competitive solicitors’ quotes, buildings and contents insurance, income protection and life and critical illness solutions.
We have diversified into the estate agency and lettings agents market over the last few years and this has enabled us to cement ourselves firmly as one of the leading agents in the local community with a ‘truly one stop shop’. With many financial solutions available that the average estate agent will not recommend, we can arrange finance on Buy to Let and unencumbered properties, sometimes meaning clients can move home without the need to sell.
We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service which means each client is treated individually and not merely as a number. We pay special attention to the fact that our clients have an understanding of their chosen mortgage product in particular, and once they have chosen their desired product, they are assisted with any paperwork or queries they may have from lenders and solicitors alike.
As a Key Account with one of the largest financial networks, Personal Touch Financial Services, we often have access to fantastic exclusive mortgage deals that are not available via mortgage lenders direct, another good reason to call or email us with your enquiry.
