Mortgage expert Tom Brennan decided to start his own business in May 2018 and was later joined by his former colleague Chris Blackwell, now a company director. The pair decided to start the business from home, offering free, independent and impartial advice to suit each client’s individual needs.
Unlike many other businesses, the pandemic has meant a huge surge in activity for Brennan and Blackwell who have now been joined in the business by two other advisers, also working remotely.
Tom Brennan (pictured) said: “At the start of the pandemic, like many other business owners, we were uncertain how the unprecedented situation would impact our business. However, what we’ve seen is an uplift in demand, partly because this life-changing period of time has prompted people to make different life choices around working from home, where they live and what they want from their lives.”
Ted Mortgages has now reached more than 200 reviews on Google.
Chris Blackwell said: “We are over the moon to have reached this milestone. When we started we were excited to get our first review and ever since then have been determined to keep on doing the best we can for our clients. To have surpassed 200 reviews on Google in less than two years is beyond what we could have expected.”
Brennan added: “The key thing for the Ted team is to ask clients to provide us with a Google review and to send them a relevant link to do it when following up – sounds simple but it is effective and feeds into their after care process. If you know your team are doing a good job and achieving the right result for those seeking the right mortgage for them and their particular circumstances, then this is an effective marketing tool. You have to be confident in your business ethics as a review, by its nature, should be based on real experience.”
