Julie has been absolutely fantastic in dealing with our remortgage and looking at our borrowing options when we moved homes. She is not only professional, knowledgeable and brilliant at what she does, she is really friendly and a pleasure to work with. She is always punctual and has always responded to any queries promptly. We have recommended Julie to a few of our friends who have also been extremely happy with her work. She has always found us the best rates available to us and explored all our lending options. Julie also assisted us with our life insurance policies which has given us peace of mind, that we have good cover in place if the worst ever were to happen. We will definitely be using Julie again in the future. We couldn’t recommend her enough, she’s brilliant! Thanks again Julie.Sara Goldsmith (November 2020)
Julie has been the light in the darkness, that is the madness of house purchasing. I truly believe we would not have been successful without her. Julie – was able to speak in a jargon free way which ensured we could understand processes that where alien to us. Julie excelled in managing the multitude of parties involved, constantly ensuring that we progressed. We have no hesitation in recommending her services, and will ensure we do so when renewing products in the future. Thank you Julie.Andrew Kimberley (October 2020)

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can you explain how mortgages work?
Yes. That’s what we’re here for! Your home may be repossessed if you don’t keep up the repayments on your mortgage, so it’s vital that you understand the commitment you’re making.
- Do we have to buy insurance?
The lenders will ask you to put buildings insurance in place, before they’ll release their funds. And we’ll encourage you to put a ‘people policy’ in place – to make sure you and your family have access to money that will help pay that mortgage – if the unexpected happens to you.
- Which type of mortgage do we need?
Let’s find out. We’ll find out what your current situation is – your income and your outgoings – and we’ll look at the deals available for a range of mortgage types, too. Don’t worry, we can explain how each mortgage would work in detail.
- Why use a mortgage advisor?
When you want a mortgage, it’s good to get impartial advice and MAPIO can provide this. Any mortgage advice service, York-based or anywhere else, should start by helping you to understand how much you can afford. At MAPIO, one of the first things we’ll do is go through a thorough cost of moving exercise with you.
This way, we can give you the mortgage advice that is right for you. It’s mortgage advice that has real value – getting you a mortgage that suits your needs. If you have a long term relationship with your bank, you might look at their mortgages – but you won’t see all the other mortgage deals available, and bear in mind we have exclusives deals not available direct or on the high street. If you get a mortgage without mortgage advice, it’s called an ‘execution only’ application – which we don’t recommend. At MAPIO we advise you on what is best for you now and what is best for you moving forward.
MAPIO is a York mortgage advisor that believes your future happiness depends on your family being secure, financially and we are here to help, guide and support you on that journey.
