The whole business of dealing with anyone at CMS is a huge pleasure – they are unique – and we would certainly recommend their services without hesitation.”

Maggie & Mike

Laura & Stuart

“Julie and her team worked tirelessly to help me through my finances following separating from my husband. Julie found the correct mortgage to enable me to stay in my family home with my children. Without the support and advice from Julie I would have given up and sold my home and I would not be in the situation that I am in now. I cannot thank her enough. The service provided by CMS is outstanding. I highly recommend them for their honest and caring approach.”

Ms Chester, Carterton

“We are VERY happy in our new home and wish to convey our thanks yet again for the advice, expertise and hand-holding given to Mike and I throughout the whole process. I have already recommended yourself and CMS in general to many friends and to our family. Thank you again.”

Julie Wilson

Julie is director of Cotswold Mortgage Solutions, managing the team as well as being an adviser in all aspects of mortgages, including Equity Release, Buy to Let, Shared Ownership and Help to Buy. Over the years, Julie has built a strong relationship with accountants, solicitors, surveyors and estate agents throughout the country to offer her clients a seamless service. 

I pride myself on offering a personal service to all of my clients ensuring that the minefield of the complex mortgage world is on my shoulders and not theirs. All areas are covered but with your best interest at heart.

The mortgage world is always changing and I have recently obtained a higher qualification in mortgages which I feel offers my clients a wider angle and have been able to help with the more complex mortgage matters. I am also qualified in Equity Release which means I have a wide range of options available for my clients.

I’ve always referred to myself as, ‘The One Stop Shop’ so why go elsewhere when I will hold your hand the whole way through.

I have worked in a number of opportunities in my working career. I started off in a travel agency which I really enjoyed but with internet bookings becoming easily available I decided to make a change and moved into retail where I stayed for the next 7 years, after which I went on to become an administrator at a PR agency where I found I could put my organisation skills to good use. Having known Julie for over 15 years when I saw the job vacancy at CMS I jumped at the chance to work with her & the team and am looking forward to learning more about the mortgage and protection side of things.

Beyond office life, I have been enduring home & garden renovations and enjoy the occasional Netflix binge.

Tanya Kloppers

I have joined the team at Cotswold Mortgage Solutions after moving up from London, having advised clients holistically for many years. I have chosen to specialise in providing Mortgage and Protection advice as this is where I feel I can add the most value to clients.

I believe that my skills and experience in the industry can help clients have a smooth experience, in a process which can become complicated if not navigated properly.

My aim is to bring the personal touch to financial services and ensure that my clients feel that they have an adviser that they can trust who help them through the mortgage process, getting their home and protecting it. 

What’s the most satisfying thing you’ve done recently and why? 
Relocating from London to the Cotswolds. Beautiful surroundings. Lovely People. What more could one want.
