Dave Johnson

Managing Director

Dave is the Managing Director of Suitable Choices and has been in the industry since 1999. He wanted his existing and new clients to have honest transparent advice with no confusing jargon. That is what he believes Suitable Choices is all about.

Dave started off as an administrator and worked from the ground up. He has also worked in the city, retail banking and estate agency, so his knowledge is second to none.

Dave is married to Ashleigh and has two children Lucy and Charlie. His best part of being in the mortgage industry is knowing that he has helped someone achieve their goals.

He loves a good old fashioned steak and a glass of red wine and his favourite song is ‘for once in my life’ by Stevie Wonder.

Neil Buckley

Mortgage Adviser

Neil is the newest member to the team and has joined as an experienced mortgage broker.

Neil started as a mortgage adviser in 2005 for Nationwide where he transitioned to an independent broker in 2015 where he has been one for 6 years.

Neil is with his long term partner Lynsey and has 2 children. Neils favourite part of being in the mortgage industry is getting his clients to realise their dreams in owning a property whilst giving them the best possible advice.

When eating out Neil loves a good curry and his classic song is come together by the Beatles.

Janice Jane

Business Manager

Janice is our Business Manager and she began working in mortgages 12 years ago doing mortgage administration, then started training to be an accountant.

She qualified whilst doing Payroll and Accounts in a large estate agency and worked there for over 7 years.

Janice has been with her partner Dan for many years and they have 2 children together Samuel and Freddie.

Janice’s Favourite part of the mortgage process is being able to help people and build a rapport with them throughout their mortgage process, from application stage right through to when it completes.

Mortgages can be extremely stressful and letting the clients know that they have someone there they can contact with any queries and concerns, no matter how trivial they think they are, can help turn a stressful situation into something more manageable for them.

Janice isn’t fussy at all where food is concerned, but if she had to pick a meal it would have to be a rare Steak with lots of red wine. Janice’s Favourite song is ‘Lovely Day’ by Bill Withers as it reminds me of my sons and always makes me smile.

Chloe Gibson

Mortgage Paraplanner

Chloe is our mortgage administrator who has worked in the financial industry for over 10 years and has thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

She is fully Cemap qualified, ensuring all cases are packaged to the highest quality.

Chloe is with her Partner Dave and she has 3 Children.

Chloe’s favourite part of the mortgage process has got to be receiving the offer and being able to share the news with the client! That’s when you know all your hard work has paid off. 

When eating out Chloe loves a roast dinner as you can’t beat a carvery and her favourite song is Calvin Harris, Summer as it’s the best part of the year!

Jakob has been in the industry for several years now and is a fully Cemap qualified adviser. Jakob has a wealth of experience in retail banking and estate agency based financial services.

Jakob lives with his partner Emily, and he is soon to become a father for the first time which he is excited about.
