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 spent time 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 to 2012 Grant Estate Agents are now firmly established in as 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 clients 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 and she is kept busy ensuring that all the "i's" are dotted and "t's" crossed when it comes to our property listings, client files and all aspects of sales administration.
She is currently studying towards the National Association of Estate Agents technical award and has already proven herself to be a valuable and indispensable member of the team at Grant Estate Agents.
Mark Bell joined us in early 2010 as a full time mortgage consultant. Professionally qualified with the Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice, Mark offers advice on mortgages from all lenders and insurers under our NIMortgages brand.
A full initial assessment of our clients needs enables Mark to tailor a solution to each person and help make their purchase or remortgage a reality. He can also assist buyers in determining an appropriate budget for their move and is currently studying towards his Diploma in Mortgage Advice and Practice with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
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
Grant is the most recent addition to the team at Grant Estate Agents having joined us in January 2018.
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 of a successful agency someday.
