Essex Mortgage Brokers
We’re a friendly team, based in Essex, headed up by experienced mortgage adviser Tony Baker. Taking a modern and positive approach to the mortgage and financial industry.
Our clients like the fact that we’re right here, when and where they need us. Our philosophy is to ensure our clients are on the most suitable mortgage at the lowest possible cost to help save money and/or help finance their dream home. We work with first time buyers, homeowners looking to save money by way of remortgage, people looking to move home, and landlords with both small and large property portfolios (which can include complex circumstances).
We know that the skills to handle these situations are firmly embedded in our DNA.
We know each client’s circumstance is unique. That’s why we take a personal approach to each new enquiry. Taking time to understand not just the financials, but the personal challenges and life goals along the way. It’s about building long-term client relationships. One that will help our valued clients to take considered approaches to mortgages, home insurance and mortgage protection now, and into the future.
We can find our clients mortgages from a large range of lenders representative of the whole of the market. Good news, as this provides great choice, far better than going direct to only one lender. Across the team we have a combined 100+ years’ experience in financial services, which means we’re adept at analysing mortgage propositions, providing practical advice to smooth the road to approval for even the trickiest of cases.
Almost all of our business is thanks to recommendations from our clients’ for family members, friends or work colleagues. Something we feel incredibly proud of, and which makes us smile.
Whilst our industry is one regulated by strict rules, these are in place to protect our clients and our business. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t be approachable, accessible and dare we say it, friendly! In fact, we pride ourselves on our approach to client care, and go the extra mile to provide a personal service that’s second to none.
We welcome you to meet the team…
