Mortgage 1st announces new partnership with British Home Sellers

Chesterfield-based Mortgage Advice firm Mortgage 1st and Nationwide Estate Agent British Home Sellers are now proudly working together to enhance the home buying journey for their customers.

House hunters across the country entrust British Home Sellers to find them their new home, with the company possessing a large team of experts and a portfolio of hundreds of properties for sale across the UK.

For customers to be able to put in an offer to buy a property, they need an AIP (Agreement in Principle) which is proof that they can get a mortgage. Mortgage 1st has a nationwide team of experienced Mortgage Advisers who can search the market to find the best mortgage deal available to them based on their circumstances.

Their combined operations means that once customers find a property through British Home Sellers, they speak to an Adviser at Mortgage 1st who can provide them with an AIP in a matter of minutes. This means they can offer on the property there and then. Continuing to work closely together until completion reassures their mutual customers that they are in the safest of hands.

The two businesses will be working together in order to provide customers with expertise and guidance to meet the needs of the modern house hunter of today.

Jon Stones, Managing Director, Mortgage 1st commented: “We are delighted to be working alongside the team at British Home Sellers as they completely share in our vision for providing customer excellence and are a dynamic forward thinking business like ourselves.”

“Both Mortgage 1st & British Home Sellers share the same values in that their customers & team members are everything. By creating friendly, supportive and exciting places to work they attract passionate individuals who thrive on delivering great customer service.”

Alex Clendon, Managing Director of British Home Sellers said: “The speed of communication and expertise from Mortgage 1st has been fantastic and improves the service we can provide to both buyers and sellers.

“Their usage of smart technology, combined with experience and a lovely team yields amazing results for our customers.”

Mortgage 1st supports the marketing and economic growth of the town through Chesterfield Champions, a network of over 200 organisations across Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.

Mortgage 1st shortlisted for prestigious industry award

Chesterfield-based Mortgage Advice firm Mortgage 1st has been selected as a finalist in the Yorkshire East Midlands category at this year’s NatWest Local Hero Mortgage Awards.

Natwest is recognising mortgage brokers in the industry who have gone beyond everyday expectations to put the customer and their local community at the heart of their business.

Across the 12 regional categories, firms have been asked to demonstrate their position as a local mortgage and protection expert, their commitment to quality advice, excellent customer outcomes, and their positive contributions using the key areas of environment, inclusivity, wellbeing, charity and community. Only 3 firms have made it to the finals for our region.

Lisa Stones, Operations Director at Mortgage said: 1st said: “We are absolutely over the moon to have made it to the finals in the Natwest Local hero Awards. These awards focus on the areas of our business that mean the most to us, our team, our customers and our local community.

“To have made it to the finals is a huge achievement in itself and we’re extremely proud of our passionate, dedicated and hardworking team. We’ve got our fingers crossed for the awards!”

With their continued growth over the last 10 years, Mortgage 1st are able to continuously offer career opportunities for those with experience, as well as training and supporting individuals who are new to the industry. Their apprenticeship scheme encourages school leavers to enter financial services by providing a friendly and supportive learning environment.

Mortgage 1st designed a schools programme and have already delivered to hundreds of local students, offering them valuable life lessons about mortgages and future financial planning. Their diary is filling up fast for this year with new schools regularly approaching them.

Luke Christodoulides, NatWest’s national account manager, said in a recent article in the Mortgage Solutions publication: “These firms have exemplified putting the customer and their local community at the heart of everything they do, in addition to providing sound financial advice for those consumers within their locality.”

The winners will be revealed at the gala awards ceremony which will be held in Birmingham’s iconic grade 1 listed Town Hall in March.
