Sean has been a financial adviser for over 20 years and is a founding Director of Vista Financial Management. Down to earth and direct, Sean combines his technical ability and concise approach, providing a clear and honest financial planning service for his clients. This is borne out by the simple fact Sean still looks after many clients now that he looked after over 20 years ago.

Out of the office, Sean is a keen sports fan, taking trips skiing in Europe and playing cricket and watching rugby of both codes. He also is a keen supporter of Leeds United and The Rhinos and loves Mallorca.

John Mallinson, Independent Mortgage Adviser
Tel. 01943 871788
Mobile. 07711 420481
I have been a mortgage adviser since 1991 and pride myself in treating every client equally, always offering the best advice for their personal circumstances and helping them through the whole complex process of sorting a mortgage out. I think it is essential to have rapport with the clients which I do by asking “open” questions.

I pride myself on getting many referrals from existing clients, even dealing with some client’s children who were very young when I first started. I always provide what is best for the client, and recently I have been doing a lot of first time buyer mortgages, where the clients are wholly dependent on me offering sound professional advice throughout. I am always looking to offer what is best for the client and recommend a lot of long term fixed rates if that is most suitable. This is done by both extensive research of the whole market and personal experience.

I can also put clients in touch with conveyancers and general insurance brokers. I can help you if you are wanting a purchase or a remortgage on a residential or buy to let basis.

I am also able to provide independent protection advice for both individuals and corporate bodies. I particularly specialise on life plans with and without critical illness and also income replacement.
