Skipton International celebrates a successful first anniversary for its Mortgage Centre last month with purple icing on a cake as the icing on the cake. The office in Waterloo Street has welcomed hundreds of customers old and new through its doors since opening in April 2017, helping over 200 applicants find their way onto the property ladder. Since the launch of the Centre, Skipton has experienced a rise of 37% on completed mortgages, evidencing the value of the Centre to the local community. Having provided mortgages in Jersey for over 13 years, Skipton made the decision last year to move their operation to a more convenient town location, allowing them to better cater to the increased demand for their services. Through the Mortgage Centre they have become more accessible to their customers, welcoming passing customers with queries or scheduling appointments for those looking to have a more in-depth chat about their lending requirements. Skipton’s aim is to make the purchase of property in Jersey as easy and simple as possible, passing on their knowledge of the local property market through a team of friendly and experienced advisors. Skipton has completed over £500 million of loans in the Island!
