Catherine Collar

Mortgage and Protection Adviser


WIBN Groups


My career has span over 17 years in the financial industry, as both an estate agency based and bank-based mortgage adviser, in the last 8 years within mortgage compliance. I live in Essex with my husband, our 6-year-old son and 2-year-old adopted daughter. Towards the end of my adoption leave I decided to launch my own business, Collar Mortgage Services, putting to practice my skills acquired over the years and my love of meeting people and helping them to achieve their dreams.

I am a whole of mortgage market adviser and have access to a selection of insurers for protection. My aim with every client is to ensure they are fully aware of the mortgage process and ensure they understand the importance of keeping their home and their lifestyles protected. I will liaise with all third parties, including estate agents, solicitors, lenders, and providers. I also see the whole process through from start to finish. I ensure with my knowledge of compliance and my mortgage experience that any mortgage application is packaged correctly at the outset saving time and money for all involved.

Last year one of my clients whom I had helped to negotiate their offer for their first home rang me up simply to tell me I was her ‘guardian angel’. If I could replicate this level of satisfaction in every client, I know that I have made an impression and I have done my job well.
