Meet the Member - Jennifer Yates - Mortgages Made Simple Ltd

Who are you? Jennifer Yates, Owner

What sets you apart from the competition? Our passion for customer service. Local and friendly advisors who talk in plain English rather than financial services jargon.

How did the business come about? I had been working as a self employed advisor for another brokerage which unfortunately had to close. I used the opportunity to start up on my own working from my home office. The business has grown and grown to the small business that it is now.

What job or achievement makes you most proud? I was awarded best advisor for Quality in 2016 by our network after nomination by compliance and customers.

Where do you see the business being in five years? Trading strongly from our new town centre premises

Why Warrington? The majority of our staff live in Warrington and we have already formed some close relationships with the town centre solicitors.

Tell us one interesting thing about the business that might surprise us? 3 of the team have worked together for over 10 years

Tell us one interesting thing about you that people might not know? (ie, hobbies, amusing fact, etc) I can't think of anything other than I have recently dug out my very old sewing machine and am looking forward to practising in my spare time (once I get some) 

Brexit – good, bad, opportunity? I'm a glass half full sort of person and believe that if we all think positively, we can overcome any obstacles put in our way. The future is never predictable - let's grasp the opportunities.
