Learn more about David Bird

As our digital marketing guru, David is an expert in SEO, PR and content. His principles-based approach to marketing has been instrumental in helping us position ourselves where we need to be to attract customers and deliver the best possible experience.

When David met Pete, they found that their talents, although at opposite ends of the spectrum, complimented each other beautifully. The pair taught themselves web development and built an early version of Online Mortgage Advisor in Dave’s spare room.

After training himself up in internet marketing, Dave worked with Pete on the first wave of content for the website, focusing on helping customers with bad credit and self-employed professionals in the early days, before branching out into broader mortgage niches.

Since co-founding the business from his spare room, Dave has watched Online Mortgage Advisor grow over the years and helped us assemble a network of more than 150 brokers, launch an accredited training academy and invest in technology to further our expansion.

Some types of buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the FCA. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. As a mortgage is secured against your home, it may be repossessed if you do not keep up with repayments on your mortgage. Equity released from your home will also be secured against it.
