Here is a little more about Nick…
With over 20 years of experience working in the financial sector, Nick joined the team in 2018 after relocating from rural Gloucestershire.
After undertaking a degree in Economics at Manchester University, Nick embarked on his financial career working with prominent brands including FAF Ltd, First Mortgage Group and Yorkshire Building Society.
During his time at Yorkshire Building Society, Nick undertook several roles including Savings and Mortgages customer service representative, a role in which he gained extensive experience in areas such as Power of Attorneys, Probate, ISAs, mortgage lettings and post-completion mortgage administration.
Thanks to his diligent nature, communication skills and excellent attention to detail, Nick was promoted to senior mortgage underwriter, a role in which he flourished and which strengthened his already impressive mortgage criteria knowledge.
Regularly handling over 80 mortgage applications at any one time and gaining insight into all realms of specialist mortgage underwriting, his role as senior underwriter was the perfect prerequisite for managing multiple complex acquisition applications in his current role as dedicated case manager to senior Buy to Let and Bridging specialist, Duncan.
It is safe to say that Nick is now an integral part of our case management team and his knowledge and support as a whole has been invaluable.
A proud Manchester United supporter, when he is not being kept busy with his two young girls, he enjoys watching the footie or relaxing with a glass of red.
What our clients say about Nick…
Absolutely amazing service. Team could have not been more helpful. Not only really amazing service but also very knowledgeable and taking customer interest as a number 1 priority. Trying to get best deal possible with saving as much as possible. Duncan and Nick have could not have been more helpful during what was very challenging purchase.
Could not have better Mortgage Broker. World class service!!
At first sight, one might think that a mortgage broker was an unnecessary expense. In this case, nothing could be further from the truth. On my first contact Duncan rapidly understood our requirements, which were quite complicated. Contrast this with direct contact with a lender (Halifax/Bank of Scotland) who started with absurdly numerous and detailed questions (what was the date of your marriage?) and ended with an offer that was obviously unsuitable. He narrowed down the lenders until he found one that exactly suited our requirements. When Nick took over he helped us with the many requests from the lender, and they both stayed with us until the end as we raced against the clock to get the finance we needed to complete a house purchase. It is to be noted that they continued doing this after we paid them. Each time there was an obstacle they came up with a solution. The price was very reasonable compared to many others, and, unlike others, they didn’t ask for payment before recommending anything to us, They don’t need to; they are confident that their customers will be satisfied, and with reason.
Worth every penny
My brokers were Duncan and Nick. Duncan listened carefully to my requirements and recommended various options. His recommendation reduced the interest rate I had expected to pay so saved me money. Nick guided me through the forms and application which lowered the usual stress of applying and he was easy to contact on the phone.
Listened carefully to my requirements and always answered the phone.
This is the second time I have used the buy to let brokers, I can not fault there service, Abby, Nick and Duncan are great and very professional and knowledgeable.
The best brokers
I have used The Buy To Let Broker to arrange finance for the majority of my Buy To Let property portfolio. Duncan, Nick and Abby have all been very responsive and helpful, and I am very happy with the mortgage deals that they have found for me. I wholeheartedly recommend The Buy To Let Broker to anyone seeking BTL mortgage finance.
Fantastic, efficient service received from Duncan, Nick & Abbey on both my buy to let & residents mortgages. Very knowledgeable team with plenty of advice & ideas to move my portfolio forward, cannot recommend enough.
Duncan and Nick Were absolutely amazing. They literally managed the process all the way through to completion. They provided a friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient service always going the extra mile to make sure my complicated purchase and sale stayed on track! I would highly recommend them and will be using them again myself! A huge Thank you to Duncan and Nick for your amazing service.
Outstanding Top Rate Service – Highly Recommend!!
I’ve used the Buy-to-Let Broker several times for BTL. Recently Duncan Winsland and Nick Proud have also been helping me with a residential remortgage involving combining two properties. Duncan’s advice throughout the process, including preparations which started over two years ago, has been invaluable. This has been a non-standard application and the team has really risen to the challenge, keeping me informed at every step and working seamlessly so that whoever I speak to knows the state of play. I know the team has been massively busy this year with the glut of work created by the stamp duty holiday, but the quality of service has remained high – friendly and professional as ever. Thanks guys!
Real professionals and a pleasure to deal with
Duncan and Nick were so helpful throughout the entire journey of the purchase of my first home. I can’t recommend them enough! They made my experience as stress free as possible and explained all the details I didn’t understand – plus they go above and beyond to find what’s right for you, thank you!!
