Day-to-day life at McCreas
My day is usually filled with meetings with new and existing clients. Aside from myself we have the mortgage administration team who are on hand to process the new mortgage applications and keep the clients up to speed with the progress, ensuring that everything happens as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
Life before McCreas
I spent a couple of years travelling the world on my own and carried out my studies; I have a BA in Information Management and Marketing, and an Msc in Management Studies. I then went onto work for a major high street bank and ran the mortgage department for an IFA in the West end of Glasgow for over three years.

Outside the office
Walking my dogs. I enjoy listening to the likes of Eric Clapton and Dire Straits, spending quality time with my family (especially during road trips) and I'm a bit of a DIY guru!
