The elevator pitch. Going up…

Moving Experience offers objective, clear, coherent, mortgage advice, and protection solutions, tailored to suit your personal needs and circumstances. We’re proud to be a Bristol based firm, but we welcome and enjoy working with a broad spectrum of clients from a wealth of different backgrounds, professions, and roles – from across many parts of the UK.

Matt Colley

Following over 7 years working in the financial services industry (more than 2 years in a mortgage underwriting centre and almost 5 years with an I.F.A. firm) Matt decided to launch Moving Experience in May 2007.  The business has since gone from strength to strength … not bad for a bloke who wanted to be a professional musician.

When he was once asked about the change of direction Matt remarked “Compared to a drum kit, a laptop & calculator are much easier instruments to carry”, and describes his work history as “not so much a career, more a series of happy accidents! ”.

The favoured part of working life is “drinking tea and chatting with clients”. After hours interests are described on Twitter as “Proud Dad, Drummer, Music lover, enthusiastic skier (more speed than talent), & F1 geek!

“I am always confident that Moving Experience will find the best product for me, and they do as much as they can to make it as easy as possible for me, helping to ensure everything progresses smoothly. They offer a personal, yet extremely professional service, and there is simply no reason to turn to anyone else.”

Will O’Hara

Will joined the business as an apprentice in November 2014, and subsequently attained both his CeMAP qualification and completed studies for the Mortgage Administration apprenticeship.

In addition to providing advice on Buildings & Contents Insurance, his primary roles now are to liaise regularly with providers, update clients, and to provide support for Matt.

Support crew

At Moving Experience we rely on our outsourced ground support crew, that assist the team with areas such as Marketing, HR, Coaching and Finance, and leave us to concentrate on doing what we do best.

They’re an essential and trusted part of the business!

It Could be You

Our first Apprentice Yvette joined the business in 2013, after A Levels. We enjoyed working with her for 3 ½ years, before she took the rucksack we purchased as a 21st birthday present and went to see the world!

Will joined us in 2014, and the knowledge, qualifications, and experience he’s gained in the last few years mean he’s a key man in the office today.

Having successfully recruited and worked with Apprentices before, and with an understanding of the benefits that Apprenticeships offer for both the young person and business, we’re in the process of recruiting again.

Quick Taster Studies

Starting again

A couple that were left facing some financial challenges, following a redundancy and the birth of a new baby. Once Mr Client had found a new role, and the family had taken large steps to achieving a more stable financial position, we were able to obtain a 90% ‘mainstream’ mortgage from a high street lender, enabling the couple to purchase a new family home.

The Business partner

A professional person who was offered the opportunity to purchase a share of the business where he worked. We found a lender, offering a great product, that allowed remortgage including ‘capital raising for business purposes’.

The Newly-weds

Young couple, recently married, looking to buy their first home. Mrs. Client is a UK citizen, & Mr Client is a foreign national who moved to the UK following the marriage. Although Mr C had not yet been granted ‘indefinite leave to remain’, we identified a lender that (after considering their circumstances) was prepared to provide the loan.

What our clients say about us

“Straightforward reliable advice, with a friendly and easy approach to make getting a mortgage/re mortgage less stressful an experience.” 9/2017

“I always feel that my best interests are at the forefront of any advice given and I have benefited hugely from that.” VD 10/2017

“Matt is absolutely AMAZING. We had an unpleasant experience with the bank, but Matt was fantastic with us! He recognised how important purchasing our first home was, and explained everything clearly and simply.” BP 3/2014
