Lisa Harrison

Mortgage and Protection Advisor

Lisa has worked in Financial Services for more than 20 years. She started her career in pensions at Sun Alliance aged 16 and after facing redundancy at aged 18, she moved into mortgages at Yorkshire Bank, where she first trained as a mortgage adviser at the tender age of 19. People questioned whether she would be successful at it so young. Would she be taken seriously? Having bought her own home at 19, she knew the process and quickly showed that she had the maturity and problem-solving expertise to go on to be very successful. After taking a year out to travel South East Asia, Australia, and the South Pacific, Lisa joined Leeds Building Society and completed her CeMAP qualifications. She then realised that working for a single company had its drawbacks, as it limited her capacity in securing best deals for her clients. So, at just 25 years old. she set up her own mortgage brokerage, working alongside local independent estate agents and by word of mouth in the Yorkshire area. Lisa then took a break from advising, opting to teach the next generation of advisors whilst she got married and had her two children, Dylan and Megan. She returned to advising in 2015, where she met the rest of the team at a large estate agency network. Lisa has a wealth of knowledge in all areas of mortgages and the house-buying process, as she also advises on and arranges both personal and property protection products.

How did you get into the role?
I had been working as a retail manager for some time and really wasn’t enjoying it anymore so when the opportunity arose for me to take voluntary redundancy I embraced it with the aim of studying for a new career. I had been interested in the Financial Services Industry and had several friends who worked as Mortgage and Protection advisers and having talked to them about what the job entailed I decided to take the jump onto this new career path.

What do you love most about what you do?
The people, I love meeting new people and finding out what they do, what their hobbies are, what their goals are and it’s a great feeling knowing that you can help them get there.

How do you describe your job to your family and friends?
Its never boring and so far no 2 days have been the same, which is a good thing.

What ‘powers’ you through the day?
The team around me, they are so supportive and really funny. If there is anything that I am unsure of or need a second opinion on they are always there to help, usually with a funny anecdote alongside.

If you weren’t a mortgage adviser, what job would you love to do?
Travel writer, being paid to go on holiday and tell people about it would be amazing 😊

What’s an ideal weekend for you?
Going away with my husband and exploring somewhere new, especially if there is a cheeky cocktail involved.

The one tune that motivates you?
Candi Staton ‘You’ve got the love’

One thing on your bucket list and why?
To travel America, I’d say backpacking but I think I’m too old for that. I love the parts of America I have seen so far but there is so much more I’d love to see.
