Honest, Practical


Bath Mortgage Search was set up in 2000 by Chris Nicholson and his partner Sarah.

Their aim was to give honest, practical advice on the maze that is the mortgage market.  Initially focused on the Bath area, the company has since expanded to serve homeowners and first time buyers across the country.

Chris grew up in the village of Blagdon on the Mendip Hills, and now lives and works in Weston village on the outskirts of Bath, with Sarah and their seventeen year old twins, Jack and Anna.  Chris became a independent mortgage broker after completing a degree in Business Administration at Plymouth University, and working several jobs with companies in the financial sector (Barclays, Allied Dunbar, Prudential).

Bath Mortgage Search has gone from arranging 10 mortgages in its first year, to doing 144 mortgages in 2023.  Its success can be attributed to Chris’ work ethic and his down-to-earth, friendly approach.  He treats all clients equally, offering everyone the same level of high quality service.  When he is not glued to his laptop, Chris enjoys dog walking, gardening, music concerts and watching UCI road cycling on TV.  He also runs the Weston Litter Group and is a member of the #NoPlaceForLitter Steering Group with other Litter Groups, Councillors and Senior Council Officials.  In 2023 he organised the second “Great Avon River Pick” with over 150 bags of litter collected between Brislington and Bradford-on-Avon.
