"Practically perfect in every way"... We introduce you to Annette Hunter:
What do you do at Stan Sherlock Associates?
I am a senior administrator within the mortgage and wealth departments. I have recently moved to the wealth department, but I still turn my hand to mortgages. I input and process cases, problem solve and see a case through to completion.
What do you enjoy most about being a member of the business support team?
I really enjoy working closely with our fantastic advisers, being supportive and efficient to ensure cases go through as smoothly and as quickly as possible. I love being part of our clients' journeys and helping them secure their financial needs and desires is truly rewarding. Having worked at SSA for almost 17 years, I have encountered a wide range of hiccups and problems that can occur when processing a case; using my skills and knowledge to solve these problems and help a case make progress is a part of my job I also enjoy.
What has surprised you the most about working in Financial Services?
How incredibly different every client's circumstances are .There are no two cases that are alike and each one requires a slightly different approach, whether that be lenders/providers or products. I have also been surprised by the complexity of financial services and how it is an ever-changing environment. An expert eye really is required to help you achieve your specific needs.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Organised, caring and loyal.
Would your family use the same three words?
Yes they would, although they consider my level of organisation and planning to be fussy!
If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
A Kindle, with plenty of books pre-downloaded to keep me occupied. I would also take a tent for shelter, whether that be protection from rain or sun – I am prone to burning easily! However, if we can class people as items, I would take some family/friends for company.
If you could choose any super power what would you choose and why?
A Mary Poppins style tidying up super-power.I would love to be able to click my fingers and all the boring household/DIY chores are magically done, leaving me with extra time to enjoy life with family and friends.
How can you help me?
My aim is to help you in any way I can to the best of my ability.Clients are at the centre of what we do at SSA, so it is very important to us all to give you the best experience possible. My wealth of knowledge and experience gained in this industry can help to process and progress your case efficiently and smoothly, making your journey stress, and hassle free.
