More than just a mortgage company

“You’re not like a normal advisor, you’re more like a mate who knows about this sort of stuff.”

That’s what a client once told our founder, Matt Colley. That statement became the vision for Moving Experience – a mortgage and insurance advice business that puts customers first, aims to build long term relationships and where we support our clients as we would our friends.

Since 2007 we have been offering objective, clear and coherent mortgage advice and protection solutions tailored to suit the personal needs and circumstances of our customers. We’d love to do the same for you.

Meet the Moving Experience team

Matt Colley

Director and Principle Consultant

Matt got into financial services to pay the bills whilst he tried to pursue a career as a musician. It’s now 20 years later and he’s discovered he’s even better at helping people find the right mortgage and protection cover for their needs than he is at playing the drums. After working for a mortgage lender and within estate agency offices, he launched Moving Experience in 2007. Matt wanted to break the “shiny suits, pointy shoes” reputation of mortgage advisers, and prove you can put customers first and still be successful.

Will O’Hara

Client Support Manager

Will joined us as an apprentice and was so good we decided to ask him to stay. Today his knowledge, qualifications and experience make him a key member of the team. As well as providing advice on buildings and contents insurance for our clients, he also liaises with clients, providers and solicitors, and generally makes sure Matt stays organised.

Support Crew

At Moving Experience we rely on an outsourced ground support crew of specialists to assist us with everything from marketing and accountancy, to HR, graphic design, and coaching. We’re also proud to be part of the PRIMIS Mortgage Network, which helps us with compliance, training, and regulatory requirements, and it’s beneficial for our clients too. All of our partners are an essential and trusted part of the business, allowing us to concentrate on doing what we do best: building relationships, providing the right advice, and serving our clients.

“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.”

Apprenticeship Awards Micro-Employer of the Year 2015 & 2016

Based in Bristol – but reaching far beyond!

Although we’re proud to be a Bristol based firm, we welcome and enjoy working with a broad spectrum of clients from many parts of the UK.

Since March 2020 we have been exclusively working with clients remotely, which we’re happy to do using video (Zoom & MS Teams) phone, post and email – subject to the usual financial services identity verification procedures, of course. Feedback has been really positive, with clients telling us that they enjoy the convenience of speaking to us from their choice of location, and couples are able to join the calls when they’re in different places. We can also share our screen which helps clarity of information.

Now then, how can we help you?
