Meet the Team
“The feeling of helping someone finance their home never gets old. I know exactly what it’s like being an excited first-time buyer, so I can truly empathise. I like to think that I will be able to put you at ease and fill you with confidence that your case is in the best hands.”
My role as a Mortgage Adviser
I have taken the less than conventional route into mortgage and protection planning than most, having worked as a chef for more than 10 years before joining Fortune Financial. I worked hard to qualify as a mortgage adviser and have discovered a real passion for helping people buy and protect their dream home.
I’m often asked if I can give people some tips when they start their journey into mortgages and protection. So, my tips for getting a mortgage are firstly, be honest with your adviser. By telling us everything about your financial situation, we will be able to find you the best deal as quick as possible.
Outside of work
When I’m not helping and supporting families with their mortgage and protection requirements, I enjoy long walks in the local countryside with my wife and our Jack Russell, Billy, followed by a drink at the nearest pub. We are currently planning a trip to walk along Hadrian’s Wall.
When we are not out with Billy, my wife and I like to go to the cinema followed by a Five-guys (without doubt the best burger). I am recently married and yet to go on honeymoon, but the dream is to go to Peru and explore Machu Picchu.
I’m not sure why, but everyone in the office thinks that my favourite song is Mysterious Girl by Peter Andre but it’s actually Africa by Toto. Needless to say, I’m not in control of the radio in the office!
My unpopular opinion is that Chocolate is the best food ever, but chocolate ice cream is awful. So, whether you need a restaurant recommendation or a recipe for lasagne I’m your man!!
But most importantly, when you need mortgage or protection advice, I am here to help.
“Our dealing with Fortune Financial Planning Ltd has been nothing short of phenomenal. I say this because they took the time to guide us and at times educate us on issues that would benefit us. At no point did we feel on our own or uninformed.”
“Mark was very knowledgeable about the products I wanted. Very professional and made the process really easy and simple. I will definitely be going back there for future help when needed and would highly recommend.”
