Lisa TaylorGroup HR and Business Manager
Lisa joined the team after working in education for a number of years. Prior to having her now grown-up children, Lisa spent over 10 years working in the Financial Services industry. Lisa wears many hats within both the About Mortgages and At Home Estate and Lettings team. Lisa’s responsibilities include; overseeing and supporting the mortgage team, general accounting, budgets and human resources. Her experience and eye for detail ensures both businesses run as smoothly as possible.
When Lisa is not at work, her love of sport keeps her busy, particularly football and she tries to support her team (Sheffield United) whenever she gets chance. Lisa loves the outdoors and one of her favourite walks is along the local coast - as long as there is time to stop for an ice-cream (whatever the weather). Lisa also enjoys a cryptic crossword, fine dining and planning her next holiday.
Lauren WoodsMortgage and Protection Manager
Lauren started in the property industry in 2009 with a keen enthusiasm to provide exceptional customer service and qualified as a member of the NAEA. Ready for a new challenge and after hearing positive reviews for our company, she secured a trainee program with us and qualified in 2021. With the experience from working in estate agency, she feels this helps her to empathise and advise on your journey through the house buying process.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children and enjoys expressing her creative flair with floristry as her main hobby.
Annie YoungMortgage Adviser
After graduating in 2010 Annie began her career working for a Property developer in London before moving onto Property Management for a corporate West London estate agency. After becoming a mum Annie decided to look for a career that would suite her busy life as a parent and after studying through Covid was thrilled to qualify as a Mortgage Adviser earlier this year. Having bought, renovated and sold a few homes of her own Annie has a real passion for property and she enjoys helping all types of clients with their mortgage needs.
Living close to Epping Forest Annie gets the best of both worlds; she loves family walks and cycling (often ending up in a pub for lunch with a shandy!) as well as enjoying the London food and music scene when time allows.
About Mortgages provided me with an excellent, first rate service. Paul and his team are open, honest, and always professional.
Paul’s advice was clear and concise and we ended up with an affordable mortgage on our dream home!
