David Jones

Director,  Advisor

David was born in Shrewsbury in 1965 and first came to Nottingham in 1984 to study for an Economics Degree at what was then Trent Polytechnic.

His mortgage career began in 1988 meaning he now has a vast knowledge of what has become a complex mortgage market. He is also a qualified Equity Release advisor and so can advise across the full spectrum of mortgages.

“My aim is to listen to what you think you need. I will then advise you as to what I would do and why I would do it if I were in the same position. I’ll never dictate to you, but I will always give you a straight and honest answer.”

He owns a small number of student properties and therefore has first hand experience that is invaluable in advising clients with both small and large Buy To Let property portfolios.

You will occasionally hear him on BBC Radio Nottingham discussing various issues to do with the mortgage market.

In late 2018, he stepped down from running Beach Soccer in England having spent 11 years supporting the Men’s and Women’s national teams as well as developing the national league. He is therefore hoping to find a little more time to get back on the golf course!
