National estate agents Leaders has launched a brand new range of mortgage services designed to help customers access the best deals and rates, as well as an in-house academy to train the next generation of mortgage experts.
An expanding team of experienced mortgage advisers are now operating from many of the company’s 123 branches. They include specialists in a variety of areas of the market, including mortgages for buy-to-let investors and new homes.
Leaders Mortgage Services will be available to customers in all 123 locations across the UK in which the firm’s branches are based. Local advisers will be supported by a dedicated central mortgage services hub.
Mark Hughes, who joined Leaders as financial services director last month, says: “We are delighted to be able to launch Leaders Mortgages Services, which is already expanding rapidly and we anticipate will become the UK’s most trusted mortgage service.
“We want customers to know they can leave the important task of finding a great mortgage deal in our capable hands, meaning we take some of the strain during their move and ensure they benefit from the best deals on the market.
“Our team already boasts hundreds of years of combined experience and we are still recruiting. A range of flexible working options are available to staff at our central mortgage hub, so we would like to hear from anybody interested in joining us at this exciting time.”
Kevin Shaw, national sales director at Leaders, adds: “As part of the ongoing expansion of the sales side of our business, we are delighted to be launching Leaders Mortgage Services in order to make the process of buying and selling even simpler and more beneficial for our customers.
“I would also like to welcome Mark to the company. He has the experience and expertise required to ensure our mortgage services will go from strength to strength in 2018 and beyond.”
Leaders has also announced the creation of an academy at which it will offer training programmes to aspiring mortgage brokers and administrators.
Mark explains: “The trainees come to the academy from a variety of backgrounds. Most are new to the mortgage industry and looking to succeed in a fast-paced and rewarding career, while some may have relevant property-related experience.
“Our academy offers full training, mentoring and an opportunity to secure industry qualifications that allow our budding brokers to move into full-time roles with all the knowledge required to deliver our services and help customers achieve their goals.”
