I ran my own businesses since 1974. In 1990, I came into Financial Services providing advice to both individuals and companies. I formed WP Property Finance Ltd in 2011 to focus on providing mortgages and loans to those who wished to purchase and improve all types of property. In 2015, we took over Positive Property Finance Ltd, originally set up by Kevin Wright in 2013, to expand our services to property investors who needed access to specialist buy to let mortgages, commercial loans and bridging finance. There are many ways to finance a property, other than the traditional mortgage route, which can offer huge advantages but, the risks and costs can be higher so it's important to seek the correct advice and guidance.

I began my career in London at the tender age of 17 and gained invaluable admin/secretarial experience working for large City corporations for 10 years. Returning to a local environment I continued my career working for a well-established wine company combining the perfect balance of my love of wine with my skills in admin! Now working closely alongside Tony and the rest of the team, I run the administration side of the mortgage department using my naturally friendly and helpful manner to ensure the stresses of dealing with lenders and Banks in the current mortgage market is significantly eased. No question is too minor!
David Pomphrett
David Pomphrett, Broker - Specialist Mortgages

After a brief spell working with a major high street Bank initially in customer services then in the fraud prevention department, I decided I wanted to follow in Dad’s footsteps as an adviser and joined the business in 2006. The early days working from the family home seem a distant memory now when I consider how far we’ve come. I love the job and it might get a little crazy at times but it’s never boring. As the market for different types of mortgages have developed the business has adapted and we are far more specialised now as the Buy to Let market has grown and property portfolio landlords have had to rise to the challenges the industry has faced in recent years.
Alison Roper
Alison Roper, Assistant to the Managing Director

Ali joined us last year having spent many years working in a small local IFA practice - she very quickly settled into the team with her warm and helpful disposition and her wealth of experience in financial services has enabled her to learn and grow quickly. Ali is a talented cake maker and when she isn't in the office she runs her own cake business, which we are very happy to say we have benefitted from on many occasions - although our waistlines are not quite so happy!
Trinity Ewing
Trinity Ewing, Case Manager (Commercial)
Tel. 01206586580
Mobile. 01206586580
Email. trinitywpfinanceme.com
Trinity joined us just over two years ago but has moved on leaps and bounds in that time and now helps Tony run the bridging and commercial side - she builds a fantastic rapport with the clients with her friendly, easy-going nature and goes above and beyond to help ensure the cases are processed as efficiently as possible - which can often be challenging in the world of bridging and commercial finance!
Isaac Hogarth
Isaac Hogarth, Mortgage Broker
Tel. 01206 586580
Email. isaacwpfinanceme.com
I joined WP Property Finance in 2014 and whilst being trained for the role it soon became apparent to me that this was a career I wanted to pursue. I have learnt a lot about the industry since I’ve been here, it’s always changing, and you must work hard to keep up, but I am fortunate to be working with wonderful people and we all get along like a big dysfunctional family. I have recently passed my CeMAP qualification and am currently undergoing further training to become a fully competent Mortgage Broker. I am always up for a challenge and will do my best to make sure your mortgage is dealt with as efficiently and professionally as possible.

Helen Swift, Client Liaison
Tel. 01206 586580
Email. helenwpfinanceme.com
My career began in customer services for a well-known furniture store. I moved on to administration work with a firm of Solicitors and Estate Agents. This worked well for me as I was promoted to run the letting department until I moved to France and started my family. After three years, we moved back to the UK and I worked in sales and accounts for a distribution company. Now, I have the pleasure of working alongside our professional advisers, providing administration support, submitting applications on mortgage protection and keeping a check on the compliance side of things.
