Lisa is a former forensic scientist having worked for the Forensic Science Service for 15 years and latterly is an experienced property investor and developer with her own portfolio of properties in the Midlands. Following a suggestion that she would make a good mortgage broker by one of her builders, and looking for a new challenge, Lisa decided to give it a go and has fallen in love with the industry!
Setting up Keys Mortgages in 2009 she used her forensic and research skills to learn all she could about this vast topic and quickly became established as a leading authority on property finance. At a time when HMOs were becoming more widespread and investors and lenders were getting used to this increasingly popular investment choice Lisa decided to learn all she could about them and has gone on to assist lenders with creating their HMO products, lending and valuation policies. Lisa mostly advises on complex residential cases, portfolios, HMOs, commercial, bridging and development finance.
