Mortgage advice to get you moving
We like to get to know you so that we can do our best to find the right mortgage for your circumstances. Owning a property is a large financial commitment, but it’s much more than that, it supports the important parts of life where families thrive. We want to help you make the right decisions and guide you through the process. We recognise that seeking a mortgage isn’t just a financial transaction, it is often the foundation stone of a happy life.
Rob Tennant moved to West Somerset in 2007 after a successful career within industry in the Midlands. The attraction was for the family to enjoy the greater freedoms of rural life in West Somerset. He established his own cleaning business and then qualified as a mortgage broker. A friendly, approachable manner and the diligence to find the right solution for clients are his greatest strengths. “My personal experience means that I understand the financial pressures when you have a family and your own business; it gives me the drive to find the right solution for our clients”
Kate Kravis came to Somerset in the early 1990’s. In between raising three children and owning a number of businesses including Cream, Minehead’s first Barista café, she served on the District Council for 8 years becoming both Finance Director and Deputy Leader. In 2017 she decided to train as a mortgage advisor and use her financial skill in a new field. “It hit me, when buying my own property, that people need a service where they receive clarity and support from brokers who’ve taken the time to understand their needs. So, we’ve created Mortgage Yard.”
