New-start mortgage firm targets £1m milestone

Chorley based Mortgage Experience has grown so rapidly in its first nine months that it has predicted a turnover of £1.1m for its first year of trading.

The firm was established in February this year by Shaun Evans, Andrew Morrison and Alistair Jameson, and has already grown from just two advisers to 15, with a further six staff in admin and support.

Shaun, CEO of the firm, said: “It has been an incredible year so far and we predict that growth will be even greater next year, as the amount of enquiries coming in keeps growing, so we are now on the hunt for more staff, to continue our expansion.”

Shaun is also a director at Financial Experience, a financial advice, mortgage, protection and retirement company and a qualified mortgage broker.

He said: “The mortgage market got hit hard in the recession, and really never bounced back, so a lot of talent was lost, but here we have a talented team supported by industry leading software, which means we can deal with mortgages faster and for the client, it’s a much easier process, where they can get up to the minute updates on where their mortgage is up to via an app they download to their phone.”

Mortgage Experience also specialises in finding mortgages for people who have been refused by the high street lenders. Shaun added: “It’s incredible the amount of people who have been refused mortgages, particularly if you are self-employed for example. This is an area where we’ve found our niche, because we have an experienced team who can source the best deals for someone, whatever their circumstances.”

It has been an incredible year so far and we predict that growth.

Mortgage Experience is now expanding nationwide and will be revealing details soon of a major recruitment drive and training scheme, to bring new advisers on board.

The firm has also already been nominated for two industry awards, “Best New Entrant (Broker)” and “Mortgage Introducer of the Year” for the industry’s leading trade awards, the 2019 Mortgage Introducer Awards.
