Matt Dowling

Director

Matt has been a Mortgage Adviser for almost 30 years, although you will regularly hear him joke that he was 10 years old when he started (he was actually 21). He is a fully qualified Financial Adviser with full CeMAP accreditation, although these days concentrates on his specialist area of Mortgage Brokerage. He is an expert in specialist lending and has many portfolio clients with extensive Buy to Let properties that he services at regular intervals.

Outside of his busy schedule, you may find Matt aimlessly hitting golf balls around a course or standing (generally sitting these days) at his beloved Manchester City enjoying his brief success in the sunshine and talking about the good old days of football. He is a keen Rugby Union, cricket fan and pretty much any sport his very supportive wife will allow him to watch!

Martin Hill

Director

A fully licenced professional Martin has spent his entire working life in the property industry, bringing years of experience to all aspects of property sales and lettings. In his spare time he is a keen golfer playing most weekends throughout Manchester and the North-West.

Having assisted in the sale of 1000’s of properties throughout Manchester, Martin has the experience to understand that people buying and selling houses appreciate a more personal approach.

Martin Says “We are committed to excellent customer service and offer all of our clients an honest, reliable and professional approach to buying or selling property”

Amanda Wayne

Mortgage & Protection Adviser

I’ve been a mortgage and protection advisor for over 16 years. I really enjoy being involved in supporting people with one of the biggest milestones in their lives and being on hand to make it as stress free and smooth as possible. I take a lot of satisfaction making a process which can be very daunting, a bit easier so people can just focus on enjoying the end result which is their lovely new home. In my spare time I love to read, listen to podcasts and audiobooks, I am a huge lover of animals, I’m currently trying to learn Spanish.
