Middleton Finance is the first mortgage broker to win recognition from Theo Paphitis’ ‘Small Business Sunday’ (#SBS) online business community.
‘I tweeted Theo (@TheoPaphitis) about the new website during ‘Small Business Sunday’. Theo selected me as one of six winners and retweeted my message to his 500,000 Twitter followers. Since the retweet I have added almost 500 followers on Twitter and the website has had a 500% increase in traffic.
I’d like to think Theo selected me because the website is a radical departure from most mortgage websites in the UK. It is simple, welcoming, and free from jargon. My preference is to meet customers in the comfort of their own homes to explain the options open to them. However, if your mortgage need is urgent, you can complete a straightforward online form and I can get back to you quickly with tailored advice.
I’m often asked for my top ‘mortgage tips’ and I try to pass on two key messages. Firstly, mortgages are serious finance. Making the wrong decision can cost you thousands. So get advice and guidance from a mortgage professional. Secondly, don’t leave it until you have found your dream home before you start looking for a mortgage. You may risk losing out to someone who can complete sooner because they already have a mortgage offer in place.’
