MEET THE TEAM

Expert Mortgage Solutions

Raja Raval

FINANCE DIRECTOR

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. The one area he has always felt lacked in his previous roles was the level of direct human interaction, so he was extremely proud to join Max and fulfil the other 50% of Harding and Raval and bring the agency to fruition. He has a keen eye for finding solutions in all types of situations and his role focuses heavily on ensuring that as an agency, we are at the cutting edge of both financial and technological solutions to ensure all our beloved vendors, buyer, landlords and tenants experience an agency that has the more to offer than just a simple right move advertisement. He strongly shares Max’s ethos on aiming to deliver an exceptional service to all who work with Harding and Raval. 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 Davis

SENIOR MORTGAGE ADVISOR
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 Johny

SENIOR MORTGAGE ADVISOR
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.

Syed Ahmed

LEAD ADMINISTRATOR
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 Shaikh

ADMINISTRATOR
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.
