From property seller to novice writer

With original intentions of creating a career within an Estate Agency, Lucy followed that path for a couple of years while exploring her own literary projects as a hobby. However, with doubts that her skills could be taking her further, she sought and succeeded in completing a degree in English Language.

Lucy pursued her love for writing by seeking journalist positions which she held for several years, writing publications for various well-known companies as she gained further experience within the industry.

Lucy would describe herself as a well-read, meticulous writer and editor, having specialised in a range of subjects over the years, from beauty to travel and entertainment.

The return to property

Lucy was able to combine her previously obtained knowledge of the property industry with her recently acquired skills in literacy when she landed a staff position at a popular home and property magazine in the south of England. As her work continued to impress, she flourished into an expert journalist for the industry, writing regular features targeted at the residential sector while attending industry events, which exposed her to the corporate business aspects of the sector.

Joining the Online Mortgage Advisor family

Working as a home and property journalist exposed Lucy to the world of mortgages and encouraged her to pursue new challenges in this sector. She started at Online Mortgage Advisor as a Content Writer to support the company’s content output.

Lucy has gradually progressed her way up to the position of Content Editor and supports the Chief Editor of Content in producing and monitoring the department’s article output for the company website. Her eye for detail, industry knowledge and determination to produce only the best content makes her an invaluable member of the team, and a vital cog to the Online Mortgage Advisor works when creating the best website experience for visitors.
