Andrea Worledge - Cert CII
Mortgage & Protection
I started my mortgage career back in 2004 for one of the world’s biggest banks. Whilst working in the background, setting up customers mortgages within the bank, I spent my days gaining valuable experience liaising with valuers, surveyors, solicitors & the banks customers. I also spent time as an underwriter, making the decision as to whether the bank could lend or not. In 2007, I moved to another part of the bank & I started working alongside brokers up and down the country to help them place their cases with the bank and achieved the role of Business Development Manager.
After the big bank crisis of 2010, I opted for voluntary redundancy and started my mortgage advice career for a large National Estate Agency. I spent a few years here gaining promotions along the way and learned many new skills across the house buying process, including practices & expectations of estate agents. After this, I then moved to a small family-owned brokerage where I became an independent, whole of market adviser.
With this variety of experience, I have a strong background and history in all aspects of the house purchasing and mortgage process and have brought this experience and insight with me to help my first-time buyer clients move forward in buying their first, dream home. The experience of working in many different areas of the process, from the bank to the estate agents to the independent adviser, has given me an invaluable advantage to help all my clients achieve their goals.
I love being able to make peoples dreams become reality. Buying a home is the biggest (& possibly sometimes the scariest!) purchase of your life. I hope to be there to reduce the stress & hold your hand through the whole process. 🏡
Married to my soul mate Phil, we have a crazy toddler who rules our world & 2 cats who use our home purely as hotel, but I wouldn’t have it any other way 😂
My biggest passion is travelling & I’ve been fortunate enough to visit some of the most beautiful places in the world. Places like New York, Mexico, The Maldives, Santorini, Paris, Italy & The Caribbean. Ultimately when I can combine 2 of my favorite hobbies, travelling & Disney, we come to my love of Orlando ❤ I’m also a massive sun worshipper so the crazy heat of Egypt is always near the top of my list too.
My husband is a big football fan so plans have to be made around this 🙄, I also support his biggest rival team (which doesn’t get me many brownie points!) I won’t name teams here though! 😂
The end goal in my working life….work hard enough that I can achieve a dream of owning my own holiday home abroad in the sun! ☀
