Richard Burley has been in financial services for over 25 years, providing expert mortgage and protection advice since 2000. His early career was in management at Woolwich Building Society where he also gained valuable underwriting experience.
His decision to specialise in mortgage and protection advice resulted in a move to London broker John Charcol in 1999, based at their Guildford office. This gave him a perfect grounding to join Oakwood in 2006, where he was a founder member, later taking up directorship in 2008.
Richard offers mortgage advice in Woking and the surrounding area to a wide cross section of clients providing high quality affordable and tailored advice.
With financial advice in Woking being widely available Richard and Oakwood are different by having the backing of Openwork, the largest adviser network in the UK, who guarantee the advice that Oakwood provide. This together with a high level of integrity and helpful client-focussed advice, means he is well equipped to deal with most scenarios.
Richard tells us
“In an increasingly complex financial world it is particularly satisfying to help clients to achieve their goals in a professional and stress-free way. With so much new build in Woking it’s very important that clients get the right advice first time to ensure they can take advantage of options such as shared ownership and the government Help to Buy Scheme. The process is often challenging and clients absolutely need a top quality adviser to help them through the many potential obstacles, and most importantly to ensure they get the home that they desire.”
