November Talk with Chris Blackwell
It's November and the month is drawing to a close. What has the last few weeks brough for you and your business? Today we're talking to Chris Blackwell who is a mortgage broker for TED Mortgages providing independent and fee free advice to anyone that needs a mortgage.
What’s your business highlight for November 2021?
November is a busy month with people completing house moves having started them with the intention of being in before Christmas.
So far all of my clients that had this aim are on track to have achieved it which is great to see.
It’s also a time in the year moving into December where the market can start to quieten down so we can start to make plans for next year and have some time to reflect on the year that has been.
So far in November we have put some really exciting plans in motion ready for 2022.
And what about a personal highlight this month?
From a personal point of view November is always the time when my wife and children start getting excited about Christmas, my wife in particular.
Although I pretend to be a grinch I always enjoy this and will look forward to my Christmas tree being up before the end of November and starting to watch Christmas films as a family.
This was the month for Bonfire Night - does this hold meaning or memory for you?
I always enjoyed Bonfire Night as a child and now I enjoy it with my family. This year in particular my 5 year old son Freddie has been learning about Guy Fawkes at school and I have enjoyed listening to him telling me all about Guy Fawkes and the Houses of Parliament.
It was Black Friday last week which is now quite mainstream – do you participate in this within your business or at home?
It’s not something we get involved with as a business and personally I am not a big shopping fan, I leave that up to my wife as she is much better at it than I am!
Have you got any events planned for December you’d like to shout about?
We will be announcing our charity partnership for 2022 in December so keep an eye out for this. I will also be supporting the Swindon Christmas Toy Appeal which I think is a brilliant cause.
Have you got any services or special offers you’d like to mention?
Our service is the same all year round but at the moment we want to help as many people as we can save on their monthly mortgage cost.
The rates available now are some of the best we have ever seen and we know that there are people out there missing the saving because they choose not to look.
We want to reach as many of those people as we can in December. Also please consider a 're-mortgage' to save money on a monthly basis.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.
