MEET THE TEAM
DHARAM “RAJA” RAVAL
Raja has a wealth of experience and expertise having been in the financial services industry for over a decade and a qualified Financial advisor, Mortgage broker, Equity release advisor and chartered accountant. He has a keen eye for finding solutions in all types of situations and strongly believes his drive and focus come from a genuine love for his work and the service he provides to his clients. When he isn’t working at the office, he likes to put his feet up with a Costa Chai Tea Latte and a good Marvel superhero movie, being a self confessed movie buff.
Lee has worked with Expert Mortgage Solutions since qualifying as a broker, so he is a real company man and prides himself in delivering a high standard and excellent service, representative of the company he loves. Lee deals with a lot of high net worth clients, a field he specialises in and he even has a lot of personal contacts within the respective higher lending departments at various banks, building societies and lending institutions. Being a real family man, when Lee isn’t busy brokering deals, you’ll often find him on an outdoor adventure with his kids.
Jamie is the youngest member of our team, but don’t let the age fool you for a second, he likes to think he is also the most hungriest pulling out all the stops for his clients and never shying away from going the extra distance when needed. He takes a very methodical and systematic approach to his work leaving no stone unturned, this comes from his background in software engineering, a career in which he excelled before joining the world of brokering. We are actually lucky to have him here in the UK at all being our most well travelled member of team, visiting over 30 countries in the last 3 years.
Brendon has over 20 years experience in financial services, serving as a senior compliance manager in the City before deciding to get involved, hands on, with clients and brokering. He takes a very thorough and detailed approach, as with his level of experience he is quick to identify solutions and potential opportunities for his clients. Brendon is a real work horse and often has to be told to take a break due to the sheer volume of hours and work he puts into every case he does, and on these rare occasions you’ll often see him supporting his beloved West Ham at the London Stadium (don’t hold it against him!).
Syed started with Expert Mortgage Solutions on a government granted apprenticeship scheme, and quickly impressed everyone with his incredibly diligent work ethic. He then went on to be the lead administrator based primarily on feedback from clients who always appreciate his communication and regular updated, ensuring everyone is well looked after from the very beginning of the process to completion. Syed is an extremely active and energetic individual, so when not at work, he is most likely at the gym pumping iron or playing football or cricket in one of the county teams he represents.
Sam joined us after working for another large central London mortgage brokerage. After seeing the ethos at Expert Mortgage Solutions being a very client-focused one, rather than trying to automate large parts of the mortgage process to cut costs, she decided she too enjoyed the more human approach to mortgage broking, after all it is the largest financial decision one makes in life, so we advise and recommend. Sam is a qualified broker so fully understands the mortgage process, what is involved and how to keep life for clients stress free.
