Clive Read the Mortgage Broker has been providing financial advice to clients for over 30 years now. In this time he has built up a wide range of experience that his clients can benefit from when they are looking for assistance with their mortgage planning.
Prior to focussing purely on mortgages, Clive provided general financial planning advice both in the UK and internationally. This experience has given him a broad understanding of many different types of financial planning scenario’s which he brings into play when advising his clients on their mortgage needs.
In 2003 Clive began to specialise in providing mortgage advice, initially with a large well-known Brokerage based in Central London where he assisted High Net Worth clients and Professionals. This gave Clive exposure to a wide range of mortgage scenario’s from the most simple to the most complex.
Although Clive enjoyed his experience and achieved significant success in this organisation he felt frustrated by a corporate culture which failed to focus exclusively on the customers journey from first contact to completion.
Clive firmly believes that its essential that clients feel valued and treated to the best possible service.
Clive has always firmly believed in the provision on quality mortgage advice and he is passionate about delivering the highest possible level of customer service throughout the mortgage journey.
In 2009 Clive established Goldmanread in Essex to provide high quality, personalised mortgage advice to his customers. Over the years since establishment Goldmanread has assisted 100’s of clients with their mortgage requirements.

We are able to provide advice on all aspects of the mortgage journey from dealing with Estate Agents and Solicitors to offering advice on those all important details that make your life easier when arranging a mortgage.
Clive holds the full CeMap qualification required by the FCA to provide regulated advice.
He has also completed a number of courses offered by lenders to cover all aspects of Specialist Lending Services.
Perhaps the most important qualification he has is the experience of the variety of mortgage scenario’s he’s encountered throughout his career from First Time Buyer’s to complex multi-million pound semi commercial deals.
