Paul SmithPaul Smith, Business Owner & Financial Adviser
Paul started his career in estate agency in the summer of 1988 and quickly became a manager in a local branch. He then qualified as a mortgage broker in 1999, working locally for a national company until, in 2003, he opened up Town Centre Mortgages. 

He felt that working and living in the local community gave him the opportunity to offer expert mortgage advice in the Basingstoke and surrounding areas. Paul prides himself on not only offering quality advice but on the house-moving process as a whole.

He understands that taking out a mortgage is likely to be your biggest financial commitment and that it is important he listens to your needs and understands your requirements in order to be able to offer the right mortgage deal for you. 

His premier mortgage service involves a 10-step process where, as an expert adviser, he will take care of everything for you. His service involves a full mortgage and protection review providing advice not only on which mortgage to choose but also on how to best protect your home, family and income should the unexpected happen.

In his spare time, Paul likes nothing better than gardening, looking after his chickens and walking his dog, Leroy.

Jo Murphy
Jo's career has always been within a client service-based environment. Previous to working at Town Centre Mortgages, she worked at Sun Life Financial of Canada for a number of years as a team leader and within the IT area of the company. 

 In later years, she worked for a small brokerage firm in Basingstoke which gave her an insight into underwriting and lender  requirements. 

 Her excellent communication skills and her friendly, approachable and enthusiastic attitude ensures that Town Centre Mortgage  clients are looked after in a professional manner.

 Jo is originally from Andover and when she is not working enjoys  keeping fit and spending time with her family.
