local hero mortgage awards finalists

We are delighted to have been selected as a finalist in the Yorkshire East Midlands category at this year’s NatWest Local Hero Mortgage Awards.

Only 2 other mortgage broker firms along with ourselves have made it to the finals for our region in these prestigious industry 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 we’re 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.

 “We are absolutely over the moon to have made it to the finals. 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 all got our fingers crossed for the awards!”

Lisa Stones, Operations Director, Mortgage 1st

At Mortgage 1st we have our team and customers at the heart of everything we do. With our continued growth over the last 10 years we are able to continuously offer career opportunities for those with experience as well as training and supporting individuals who are new to the industry. Our apprenticeship scheme encourages school leavers to enter financial services by providing a friendly and supportive learning environment.

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

We operate nationally and have advisers and customers all over the country but we are still fully committed to our home town and continuously supporting our local communities.

Luke Christodoulides, NatWest’s national account manager, said in a recent Mortgage Solutions article

“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.

We have our fingers crossed and we’d like to wish all the other finalists the very best of luck!
