Nicola Bentman

Nicola Bentman

Director/Mortgage and Protection Adviser

I started working in August 1997 at First Direct as a customer services representative, before making the decision to become a mortgage adviser. After completing the relevant training, I joined Mortgages Direct in June 1999. I was keen to develop my skills in the protection market and liked the culture within Choice Mortgages so I joined the firm – and never looked back!

Out of hours

Playing taxi for my two children! When time allows, I love long walks in the outdoors.

Director/Mortgage and Protection Adviser

I joined the financial services industry in 1993, starting out in insurance, investments and pensions. I later went on to specialise in the mortgage market, working as a mortgage adviser for six years within an estate agency, before finally settling at Choice Mortgages.

My main hobbies are golf, snooker, squash and my lawn.

Tony Senior

Tony Senior

Director/Mortgage and Protection Adviser

I have been working in the financial services industry since 1989. During this time I have worked for various companies in both advisery and management roles. I was attracted to Choice Mortgages because they offer a friendly, professional and customer-focused environment. Being an independent financial services company ensures I deliver a first class customer outcome.

Out of hours

I enjoy spending time with my wife, children & grandchildren (I know I don’t look old enough). I also enjoy travel and watching football.

Grace Kettle

Grace Kettle

Mortgage and Protection Consultant

I started working as a customer services representative in 2007 for an electronics distribution company, which then progressed to a role as an account manager. It was after having my little girl that I decided to embark on a career change. I started working for Choice Mortgages in March 2018, alongside studying for a CeMAP qualification. I am in the office Thursdays to Saturdays, specialising in home insurance for our clients with the aim of taking the hassle of searching for quotes away from them. I am really enjoying working in such a friendly office.

Out of hours

I enjoy spending time with my little girl Ellie, with our favourite activity to do together being swimming. Eating out for Sunday lunch with my husband, family and friends is also a regular occurrence. I also try to find time to go to the gym but often find excuses not to go!

Rob Trevor

Rob Trevor

Mortgage and Protection Consultant

I have worked in various roles before deciding to pursue a career in the mortgage sector, taking a job as a trainee mortgage adviser in July 2014 within an estate agency. I then had the opportunity to join this fantastic company to further my career. I love working for a company with the client at the centre of all they do.

Out of hours

I love spending time off with my wife and children, whether that may be a fun day out or staying at home with a film. I’m very passionate about my football and music too. If I’m not with my family or watching football then I will be with my band, gigging around the local areas.
