Newly-launched brokerage First Class Mortgage & Protection is aiming to make the homebuying process hassle-free for first-time buyers, buy-to-let investors and remortgagers.
The Brighton-based freelancer created the business from a passion for providing people with friendly, easy-to-understand mortgage advice.
Christian says: “I believe that there is a mortgage for everyone – even in the current climate. There will always be a level of uncertainty about finance and mortgages, but it’s so important for us to put people at ease.”
“First Class prides itself on delivering a relaxed service at what can often be a stressful milestone in life which is why I make a point of going to my client’s home or place of work for their full appointment.”
With an ethos that ‘there is a mortgage for everybody’, the broker aims to offer down-to-earth and practical home-purchasing advice, and the expertise of the specialist team ensures all circumstances, however niche, are catered for with a range of viable financial options.
Christian adds: “The Sussex region in particular, has always been a destination for attracting employment growth within the media, arts and creative sectors. Over the past few years, this has resulted in an increase in individuals working as freelancers, contractors or entrepreneurial start-ups.”
“It’s a common misconception that mortgage applications are simply not possible with just one years’ worth of accounts, but we’re here to help debunk those mortgage myths and help more independent young professionals become property owners.”
He explains that with interest rates currently so low, the competitive market has turned to alternative criteria on which to qualify applications, such as employment status and credit rating. Because of this, it’s especially important that individuals and couples get the right support and guidance to feel confident with their property choices.
