Green & Green a short story..
Posted on 30th August 2023 at 14:29
Green & Green started back in March 2020 when managing director James became fed up with working for someone else. Feeling like he could provide a better service with the client’s best interests at the heart of the process, he applied for FCA (Financial conduct authority) registration in March of 2020. Now we all know what happened in March 2020!
With an FCA license granted but the full country in lockdown, and majority of people either of furlough with no idea if or when they will return to work, or business owners not sure if they will have a business to go back to when lockdown ends. It was a rocky start to Green & Green for sure. People weren’t buying homes due to lack of certainty and optimism in the economy and lenders withdrawing all products until they saw how the lockdown measures were going to play out, clients were hard to come by.
But with the lifting of lockdown brought an influx of opportunity for buyers with record low interest rates, but also people looking differently at their current home. People either wanted to move and take advantage of such cheap money or use that money to improve their current home to fit the new lifestyle we found ourselves in. With working from home becoming the new buzzword and pubs/bars still shut or operating on limited capacity many people released money from their homes to fund building home bars or home offices.
Off the back of this our business exploded! Helping 100s of First-time buyers, upsizers and investors build Buy to Let portfolios in our first year. As a result, the home office in James’s box room at home became a little too cramp, leading to us moving to our current office in Ergo, Bridgehead business park in Hessle. The luxury office provided us with a space to not only grow the team but a private place to hold client appointments.
The move to Ergo allowed us to hire more mortgage and protection advisers to help keep up with demand for our services with Rhys and Joe joining us in self employed capacities. Fast forward to 2023 we brought in our first employee with Anna coming in to head up our new administration department which helps us to process more cases, provide more attention to detail and more client care.
In 2023 we added 2 further strings to our bow with Rhys qualifying in equity release allowing us to advice in later life and retirement lending. James qualified in commercial finance which means any property type or property transaction we can now advise on. From bridging loans to commercial mortgages, first time buyers to retirement mortgages we can now do it all.
Over the past 3 years we have amassed over 150 5* google reviews and multiple business awards for our dedication to customer service and client outcomes and continue to strive to perfect the client experience, adding more value with product offerings and all round customer service.
