Our staff strive to be the approachable, down to earth and friendly face of local Estate Agents.
John Grant has lived and worked in the Newtownards and Bangor areas for most of his life and has had successful careers with Halifax Bank, Leeds Building Society and Halifax Estate Agents.
John Grant Mortgage Services opened in Mill Street, Newtownards in February 2002 as independent mortgage and insurance brokers and in March 2005 became John Grant Mortgage and Property Services adding Estate Agency to its list of services.
Having navigated the downturn of 2007 and the Covid-19 lockdowns of 2020/2021 Grant Estate Agents are now firmly established as leading Estate Agents and Mortgage Consultants in the Ards and North Down area and are recognised as professional, enthusiastic and dedicated with a firm focus on the client's needs and a friendly, down to earth approach.
Victoria Alexander has been with John since the company first opened in 2002 and is a key member of staff providing day to day support across all areas of the company's activities. She currently specialises in Sales negotiation and Sales progression and is often the first point of contact for customers dropping into the office.
With a background in Halifax Estate Agents she is more than equipped to assist our Estate Agency clients with any of their property needs.
Kerrie joined the company in 2017 and brings a wealth of experience from local journalism and customer support roles most notably at the Newtownards Chronicle. Visitors to the office will meet Kerrie on the front desk where she is kept busy managing new property listings and negotiating sales on behalf of our vendor clients.
She holds the National Association of Estate Agents technical award in the Sale of Residential Property and has already proven herself to be a valuable and indispensable member of the team at Grant Estate Agents.
Mark joined in early 2010 as a full time mortgage consultant and holds the higher level 4 Diploma in Mortgage Advice and Practice so clients can be assured of his superior knowledge and professionalism in all matters relating to their mortgage and protection needs. He offers advice on mortgages from all lenders and insurers under our NIMortgages brand.
A full initial assessment of our client's needs enables Mark to tailor a personal solution to each individuals circumstances and help make their purchase or remortgage a reality. He can also assist buyers in determining an appropriate budget for their move and provide a Mortgage Agreement in Principle to strengthen their position when property hunting.
Lyndsey joined us in June 2016 and moves easily between Estate Agency and Mortgage Administration roles.
She has an extensive knowledge of lenders processes and criteria and is central to keeping NIMortgages clients fully up to date with the progress of their mortgage and insurance applications supporting our mortgage consultant, Mark Bell
Lyndsey also holds a level 3 Certificate in the Sale of Residential Property through the National Association of Estate Agents.
Grant is the most recent addition to the team at Grant Estate Agents having joined us in January 2018 but he has already obtained the Level 3 Certificate in the Sale of Residential Property from the National Association of Estate Agents.
Grant has his finger firmly on the pulse of the local property market and provides accurate valuations and selling advice to our clients in addition to being a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor who creates our Energy Performance Certificates.
Despite the name he is not related to the company owners but, given his drive and ambition for Estate Agency, I wouldn't bet against his name being above the door someday.
