Insider Insights: John Foster

A new update from Boris Johnson this morning explained that the country pulling together to tackle the crisis seems to be working, although we aren’t quite out of the woods yet… With so much uncertainty about the future, we have been catching up with local business owners and market leaders, to get their take on the whole ordeal. With this in mind, here are a few words from John Foster, Managing Director over at Foster’s Financial:

‘’I am eager to get back to some kind of normal. I have spent the last few weeks reflecting on our strategy and how we are going to come back stronger than we left. I have been speaking to potential candidates and planning our return to market, I am excited to get back behind the wheel and steer the ship back to where we were. We will get through this and out of the other side.

Who knew at the beginning of the year we would find ourselves in such complex and uncertain times? But it’s not all doom and gloom despite what you might read in the press. Lenders are re-thinking the way they do business and so are surveyors. We have seen them move to a more virtual based methodology and the FCA has also now approved electronic signatures.

Times of uncertainty bring with them opportunity and in the mortgage world, this has created the opportunity to reflect and bring the industry into the 21st century. When we are back to normal (which I cannot wait for) the industry will be significantly improved and quicker.


Kind Regards ‘’
