One 77 Mortgages is undergoing a period of considerable growth; having more than doubled in size in the last twelve months. We are making some significant changes to our company structure to ensure that we are providing the best possible service to our clients and business partners.
You may not be aware that we not only specialise in providing market leading fee free mortgage advice, we also provide exceptional insurance advice on how best to protect you and your family. All of our mortgage advisers are qualified to provide protection advice, however the decision has now been taken to form a ‘department’ specifically to deal with protection enquiries from our clients.
Have you ever considered what would happen in the event that you passed away, were diagnosed with a serious illness, were unable to work, lost a key member of staff from your business or your home was victim of damage or a burglary? Protection insurance encompasses a great many areas; including several different personal insurances such as life and critical illness cover as well as business protection and even home buildings and contents insurance. We source our insurance products from across the market, and only recommend providers who offer the best possible cover and service, ensuring that if and when you need to make a claim on your policy you are able to do so with the minimum amount if hassle at what is likely to already be a trying time.
Katie Pisanu, Protection Sales Director, who will be heading the department says “I have specialised in protection matters for the last ten years and know from personal experience how important it is. Protection is something which is very often overlooked by a lot of our clients. There are so many other things to think about when you are buying a property it is easy to forget how vital it is to protect your biggest asset against a worst case scenario. The new team that we are putting together will ensure that our clients are fully aware of the products available to them.”
As a firm we have a strong pedigree as Protection Advisers. Katie has previously won Protection Broker of the year at the British Mortgage Awards and was a finalist again this year. Additionally the first member of the new department; Jaime Swift, until recently one of our Case Managers, was this year also a finalist in the General Insurance Broker of the year category (Buildings and Contents Insurance). Katie said “Jaime has repeatedly demonstrated a natural aptitude when it comes to insurance matters and did exceptionally well to not only be nominated but to make it through to the final three at this year’s British Mortgage Awards. She is a welcome addition to the department and I am confident she will be very successful in her new role.”
