Company description
We are the longest standing Independent Mortgage company in the West End of Glasgow. Established in 1998, we have arranged in excess of £500 million worth of mortgages for a predominantly west end clientele. Our advisors will search out the best deal for mortgages and insurance from a wide range of lenders. They will pick the one which is best for you not which gives us most commission. We cater for every client - from University professors and stage and screen actors to first time buyers and students. The West End is a diverse and exciting environment to work in but we also have clients across Scotland and the UK. Advances in technology mean that we can deal with all your financial matters by email and over the phone although we always prefer the personal touch and face-to-face contact.
Any consultation is COMPLETELY FREE. We only charge you when we carry out work for you and our rates are extremely competitive. Paul McGowan attended Earnock High School in Hamilton before completing an honours degree in Cell Biology at Glasgow University. After a major review of his career options he chose to move into the property market which he had always been interested in and joined Roy Slater Estate Agency in 1987 just after Roy had set up the company. During his 10 years within the group he played a pivotal role in ensuring that the company became one of the dominant Estate Agencies within the west of Scotland. After working in a number of the company branches he became based in the West End branch on Byres Road in 1990 where he remained the company's top mortgage broker for 7 consecutive years.
In 1997 he was offered the position of Director, however, turned this down to start his own company McGowan Financial Management. The following year he obtained his own commercial premises on Byres road and the Independent Mortgage Store was born. He remains the longest standing broker on Byres Road having been based here for over 26 years. Office Manager Laura Carson attended Kings.
