Chris Pain
Head of Mortgage Advice | FPC 123, CeMAP

I have been involved in the residential property market for over 30 years from my humble beginnings as a Trainee Sales Negotiator in Esher. I thoroughly enjoyed my time within the Estate Agency market and worked my way up to a managerial role within 5 years.

Finding mathematics easy as a child, the draw of financial services proved too strong to resist and I moved over to the mortgage market in 1987. I spent 6 years working for a bank involved in residential / commercial lending before joining Curchods Mortgage Services in 1994. I now run the department and still thoroughly enjoy working with clients to advise them on their affairs, some of whom I have worked with since joining the company.



John Morgan
Sales Manager | CeMAP

Having started in Estate Agency back in 1998, I moved across to mortgages services in 2002 and have not looked back! Having always worked alongside Estate Agents I have a vast range of knowledge and experience in the housing market, which I use to my advantage in ensuring that our clients’ experience in dealing with Curchods Mortgage Services is a smooth and efficient process.

Assisting in driving the business forward whilst keeping the client at the centre of what we do is an exciting and challenging role which provides me with great satisfaction.



Tim Bryden
Senior Mortgage Advisor | FPC, CeMAP

I am a fully qualified mortgage advisor that specialises in all aspects of the house buying process. Having initially worked as an estate agent within Curchods, I am now in my 25th year within the mortgage side of the business.

With many years experience of both selling and financing property, I feel I am in the ideal position to advise and guide my clients through the ever-changing world of securing a property.



Mike Dean
Senior Mortgage Advisor | FPC 2,3. CeMAP

I have been in the Financial Services industry for over 23 years. Having started within Banking I then moved into management in Building Societies before I became a mortgage broker in 2004 which I thoroughly enjoy. I have not looked back since and am passionate about my work, providing great service to help my clients and advising them on their mortgage and protection requirements.

Many of my clients have used me for a number of years and also refer friends and family for me to help too which is a great testament to the advice and service I provide.



Tony Sexstone
Senior Mortgage Advisor | CeMAP

Currently living in Walton-on-Thames and having worked within the estate agency business since 2001 giving both mortgage and protection advice, I feel that I am very well placed to ensure that my clients not only get the best possible service throughout the sales process but become a client for life.

Since joining Curchods Mortgage Services, the dedicated admin team has afforded me more time to be in the strongest ever position to meet the needs of my clients. I am delighted to say that after many years in this sector, I still enjoy continuous referrals and recommendations which I believe to be the ultimate sign of a job well done!



Simon Labrow
Senior Mortgage Advisor | FPC, CeMAP

I have been advising on mortgages since 1985 when I started my career in financial services with Legal & General. Mortgages have become far more complicated to arrange in recent years so many of my clients really appreciate my specialist advice using my considerable experience.

I have an excellent knowledge of tax and assist clients to find the most efficient way to complete their property transaction.



Chris Gomez
Senior Mortgage Advisor | CeMAP

I have been working in the property industry now for over 5 years and began my career as a negotiator based in Ewell. Having progressed through to the position of Assistant Manager, my experience in Estate Agency has given me a vast knowledge of the house buying process which I use to help my clients dealing with offers, understanding the legal process and the mortgage journey itself.

After successfully passing my CeMAP examinations earlier this year, I decided to make the switch to mortgage services and joined the team here at Curchods Mortgage Services. I felt the combination of the experience and reputation of the company paired with the support of a strong administration team were the perfect building blocks to progress my chosen career.



Vincenzo Rosellina
Mortgage Advisor | CeMAP

I have been in the Financial Services industry now for nearly 4 years and began my career working as a financial dealer looking at risk management and market trends. Last year I decided that working within the Mortgage and Protection sector was what I wanted to do and so I completed my full CeMAP qualification and have recently joined Curchods Mortgage Services.

I enjoy being able to assist our customers with their mortgage choices to ensure they are comfortable and happy throughout this extremely important process and that the advice given is the best suited to their individual needs.



Roger Larner
Mortgage Advisor | FPC & CeMAP

I started my career in banking in 1990 before moving into financial planning in 1997 where I soon specialised in mortgage and protection advice, driven by my own experience of buying my first property at that time and the challenges that involved. With the extensive knowledge and capability I have gained, I’m most proud of the reputation I have for developing and retaining strong relationships with my clients.

Now, with over 30 years of experience in the wider financial services industry seeing an incredible amount of change that’s ongoing, I am delighted to have joined Curchods Mortgage Services who share the same passion and commitment in helping clients fulfil their goals and ambitions.



William Shillingford
Mortgage Advisor | CeMAP

I have been involved in the property industry now for over 5 years, starting my journey as an estate agent in the Chiswick area. After deciding to make the leap into Mortgage & Protection services 3 years ago I haven’t looked back.

My experience in the property industry has broadened my knowledge of the procedures and processes involved with buying and selling properties which means I am able to use this experience to pass onto my clients, ensuring that they have a greater understanding house buying process and ultimately achieve their house buying goal as smoothly as possible.



Leanna Sarawan

Having originally started my career in banking, I moved into estate agency covering all areas whilst studying my CeMap. Now with over 15 years experience in the industry as a whole of market adviser, I love being in the position where I can make sure my clients are informed fully with regards to everything involved in the financial processes.

The mortgage and protection market is always changing and can seem complicated, so it is incredibly important to make sure everyone knows the options available to them and what is involved. I pride myself on helping and simplifying the process whilst educating my clients to make their lives easier.

I am excited about this opportunity as I will gain so much more exposure of the financial industry and it will help increase my knowledge of the mortgage world.



Amanda Dwyer
Case Manager

After working in the Oil & Gas industry for many years, a change to the world of Mortgage Financial Services in 2018 was a new and exciting challenge for me and I have not looked back. I joined the Curchods Group in 2021 as I felt it was a great move to work with such a professional and well known award winning company.

Working for Curchods Mortgage Services I know will certainly expand my understanding of mortgages & protection and help me in many ways to extend my knowledge in new aspects within the business. I enjoy helping clients through the financial side of the process of house buying and ensure that I an always on hand to assist in any way possible

Having gained experience in many roles ranging from retail, equestrian, childcare and more recently Holistic Therapy, I wanted to experience office life and when the opportunity came about to join the team at Curchods Mortgage Services, I felt this was the perfect chance to join an established organisation with a well respected brand.

My experience within Holistic Therapy means that I must listen to my clients and tailor my approach to them as an individual and I feel this customer care will carry through when I am assisting the Case Managers, Sales Team and Curchods clients. I am also looking forward to the challenge of increasing my knowledge and skill set within the finance and house buying sectors.
