Outside of the office, John’s a family man. You’ll be sure to find him playing with his young son, riding his bike, enjoying a cup of coffee or perhaps something a little stronger.
Tracy Rumsey – Office Manager

Looking ahead Travis has ambition to be a mortgage broker in the future.
Outside of the office, Travis has recently passed his driving test so you’ll find him enjoying his new found freedom in his Ford Fiesta, playing football for Little Oakley or enjoying a game on the Xbox
Charlie Smith – Mortgage & Protection Broker
For all of his working career Charlie has been involved in property, initially Charlie started off selling houses. Now he’s more akin to getting mortgages for them. Having working in Ipswich, Colchester, Clacton and most recently Bramford. Charlie has clients across Essex and Suffolk, needless to say his car has done a few miles! Charlie is fantastic to work with, he has lots of experience but also a can do attitude always looking for the solutions, not focusing on the problems facing his clients.
Outside of the office, Charlie is a big football fan and goes to see his team play as often as possible, if he can be dragged away from the football he loves wining and dining his beloved.
