We are absolutely delighted with his solutions and approach, and we will continue to use his services without any hesitation.ML & AC, Worcester Park
Quick to RespondWe found the perfect house and needed an affordable mortgage to match. Steve found us a mortgage that had realistic monthly payments from a reputable provider. He was always quick to respond back to any of our queries and was very helpful. We are looking to remortgage again soon and will definitely be using Steve again, and for his mortgage protection advice.SB & KB, West Midlands
Excellent and Efficient ServiceI am very happy with the excellent and efficient service provided by Steve Hankins mortgage broker. I was looking for a new fixed-repayment mortgage and I had already found a property. Steve was able to get my agreement in principle very quickly. Unfortunately, that property fell through, but Steve again helped me when I then found another property six months later. All in all, it was a very friendly, professional service. I would definitely recommend Steve for mortgageLH, Sutton.
I have worked within the industry for over 20 years, starting in the estate agency field (both sales and lettings) where I successfully managed branches. To progress, I then studied to become a Mortgage and Protection Adviser, again working within a national network of estate agents. I decided to move into the banking sector to gain more experience where I advised in a flagship branch.
In 2013, I took the plunge and became a self-employed Mortgage and Protection Adviser at Charles Derby Mortgage Bureau. I really enjoy this environment and I have now built up a large network of customers, the vast majority of my customers come from client recommendations.
I strongly believe we should all enjoy what we do. I like helping my customers purchase their first or second homes, protect themselves from debt and ownership worries and ensure they are setup for whatever life may bring to their door.
I live with my partner and my teenage stepson, we live on the borders of Surrey and SW London. I love sport, however now I am restricted to watching and not playing which is probably for the best. My partner is Spanish, and we love spending time with her family in the south of Spain where the weather is good and the cuisine is amazing.
