Our story so far…

Easyswitch Mortgages was founded back in 2007 by three directors with long and flourishing banking careers.

Why on earth did we leave these established roles to start a new business, we hear you ask? Especially on the brink of recession?

Because we spotted a need in the market for mortgage brokers who really care about their clients. Home movers were crying out for brokers who will stop at nothing to ensure they have everything they need to realise their dreams. They wanted to work with advisors who promise to see the process through from enquiry to completion, and who have the knowledge and experience needed to find the right finance solutions at the right prices, regardless of the obstacles they are presented with.

Our vision was – and still is – to make the mortgage process easy. We cut through the red tape, and we take full ownership of every mortgage application to give our clients complete peace of mind. Our model is straightforward. You deal with your dedicated mortgage broker from the moment you enquire with us, to the moment you get the keys to your new home. Your broker is your first and only point of call, which means you receive care that’s specific, focused, and fully tailored to you.

our team

Peter Burke


I’ve been involved in the financial services industry since 1988, and I’ve seen the sector go through countless changes during this time – not least the evolution of mortgage regulations. I can safely say that the level of advice and professionalism in our industry is at an all-time high. This is why I am proud to be a member of the Society of Mortgage Professionals, part of the CII.

As I specialise in larger mortgages, insurance and the Equity Release market, my work is always varied. I love helping my clients turn their dreams into reality by helping them source affordable, sustainable finance agreements. When I’m not at work or with my family, you will normally find me on a tennis court. I am convinced that this pastime is destroying my back, knees and elbow – but I am addicted!

Having worked in the finance sector for over 30 years – and at Barclays Bank for nearly two decades – I know just how important it is to have high attention to detail. I focus on doing the ‘right thing’ by my clients, which involves fully understanding their needs before providing the most appropriate mortgage and insurance advice.

I invest time in my clients, no matter what stage they are at. I love working with first time buyers, who are often trying to understand the scary world of property ownership – but I equally enjoy assisting homemovers and more seasoned property investors with wider portfolios. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and I am a passionate football fan (although I won’t disclose ‘my’ team for fear of offending!).

I have been helping people get on the property ladder since July 1977. My job still gives me the same buzz as it did all those years ago, because there’s no substitute for helping my customers achieve what they want to achieve, regardless of whether they’re trying to secure their first home or simply need to rearrange their finances to make their ideas happen.

I strive to deliver a great service with that all-important personal touch. I go the extra mile for my clients because I know just how daunting a home move can be; my role is to provide excellent advice and a much-needed helping hand during what can be, for some, the most stressful time of their life.

I have been married for over 40 years, and am lucky to have two children and three gorgeous grandchildren. I am a county standard football referee (although not all the players I referee would agree with that!), a school governor, and I also enjoy reading and listening to music.
