Though I am from Edinburgh originally, I currently live in East Staffordshire, on the outskirts of Burton on Trent. Having lived here for several years now, I’ve become a big fan of the warmer and drier weather!
When I first moved here, the main part of my business was helping clients to obtain mortgages for their homes or their rental properties. This is a service that I continue to offer.
I set up Equity Select in order to deliver high-quality equity release advice within the local area. The market has changed significantly, and more and more people are seeing their property as a way to help fund their retirement.
Yes, equity release has suffered a bad name in the past – nobody would deny that; however, with the new regulations and safeguards that are in place, it’s easy to see why it’s grown in popularity and why I receive regular enquiries about it.
