Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

After starting in the retail banking sector I discovered one area of business more than any other was often confused and hard to get the best deal as a client was your mortgage, savings rates were so similar between banks but mortgage rates vastly different. I wanted to understand why so after passing my exams in 2015 Craig offered me a chance to step into the market full time to learn the business.

I love changing a complex mess or situation into a clear one, problems happen before you meet a client so to take the stress away of a part of their purchase feels great. I also like to break down the detail into manageable chunks for my clients so we can make decisions together, i like to empower my clients with new knowledge so they can make an informed decision with my guidance.

My job is a 24/7 responsibility and I can get a call from a client for a simple remortgage or from a lender wanting to discuss the floor plan of a new homes site being built, and everything in between. It’s also a great way to meet people, discover more about them and make sure they’re interests are looked after.

I don’t feel like it’s a sprint, more like a marathon and the only way to keep going is to keep your head up and focus on the positives!

Sounds like a jump but an electrician, after recently renovating my home, I’ve found it’s the job that sounds impressive but mainly involves pulling wires, not that dirty!

Two days of only good news on the mobile, cooking with my partner, beer in hand and preferably a nice view of the sea.
