Meet the Founder & Director

Chris Vernon

Chris has always wanted to run his own business, and thrives on the chance to let people achieve their dream of owning their own home or realise their mortgage goals.

Having achieved his CeMAP qualification in 2016 he has been in the industry since, gaining a wealth of experience before taking the steps to start his own business.

Outside of work he has always been a keen cricketer, having represented Kent as a junior, and still plays regularly for Sevenoaks Vine in the Kent league. He is also an MCC member which has taken him to Costa Rica and Mexico on tour and has ECB level 2 coaching qualification, and can often be found coaching in his local area.

Cricket aside, Chris also has a great love for outdoor pursuits, in particular golf and walking, with many days spent on the fells in the Lake District. He also enjoys a game of cards and is a avid Liverpool supporter!

Buying your first home, re-mortgaging or taking out life insurance are all life changing decisions and Chris and the Kentish Mortgage Company are committed to providing a thorough, clear and professional service that is tailored individually to suit each clients personal need and circumstances.

  • Chris has helped us with our mortgage, re-mortgage and life insurance policies now and we couldn’t wish for a more trustworthy person to deal with these for us. He’s been endlessly helpful throughout and has been honest with his advice which has been really appreciated. Chris came highly recommended to us and in turn, we’ve recommended him to our friends when they’ve needed mortgage advice too.

  • When stamp duty easements came in 2020 I had a finite window to get on the proper ladder at a beneficial time.  I needed to structure the deposit in a complex manner.  Chris worked with me proactively to find a solution that made this acceptable to lenders.  We executed at strong market terms and secured the Stamp Duty easements.  We also met my wife’s timetable of being in by Christmas! I would highly recommend the services of Chris and his firm

  • I came to Chris with a number of reservations about what was possible, how much help he might actually be, and a not an awful lot of faith that I could find a mortgage deal that I’d feel reasonably happy with. He responded with an open and pragmatic approach, demystified elements I initially struggled with and guided me through the application process. I ended up with a situation that, over a year later, I’m still satisfied with – I’m happy to recommend his services in this area
