On the back of that, we've had an interview with the Mortgage Strategy panel.

And, when they announced the longlist results earlier this week, we were overjoyed to see our name on the shortlist!

We're not counting any chickens yet. We're up against five other specialist brokers of varying sizes and who serve various markets.

The winner will be announced on the 25th of May during the Mortgage Strategy awards ceremony at London's Grosvenor House hotel. We'll let you know how we get on but, until then, many thanks again. We couldn't have progressed this far without your support. #Legends!

Why you might want to vote for Freelancer Financials

Since its inception in 2004, Freelancer Financials has devoted itself to changing lenders' attitudes towards the flexible labour workforce (the Gig Economy). Today, that means working hard for: contractors on fixed-term contracts, freelancers, CIS-, and Zero Hour Contractors.

Contracting Awards 2020 Best Contractor Mortgage AwardWe've developed underwriting criteria with many lenders, often holding their hands through pilot programmes.

By educating lenders on the nuances of contracting, they now understand how to assess a contractor's true mortgage affordability.

Our reward is the implicit trust from both lenders and the contracting community alike.

In 2020, we won the "Best Contractor Mortgage Provider or Broker" Award at the Contracting Awards 2020, the most prestigious award for service providers to the Freelance/Contracting community.

We've also received 'Top Executive Partner' award from Next Intelligence for seven years running, including 2021. We would dearly love to add a Mortgage Strategy Award to those successes with your help to get us over the line!

Due to our hard work, contractors today have the opportunity to get a mortgage based on what they're really worth.

In helping others, we've become one of the largest, most authoritative UK contractor mortgage specialists and one of the largest specialist mortgage brokers outright.

All this whilst remaining a family-owned, independent mortgage brokerage of just 35 people.

We would be extremely grateful if you could spare us a moment to vote for
