About Us.

Hi, I’m Aaron.

I’m the founder of Smart Mortgages. Over the last decade I’ve helped thousands of local families realise their dream of home ownership, securing the finance needed to buy their own properties.

I bought this business (formerly Paul O’Keefe Associates) in 2016 and with your support, I’m now going to help thousands more realise their dreams too. Because a mortgage isn’t just buying a home – it’s investing in the future.

These are strange, uncertain times. Lenders are more stringent than ever and we face tough economic challenges on the long road ahead. But it’s my job to know this terrain and guide you through it. I am helping clients navigate it every single day – ensuring they can access the best products and services on the market

If you are considering mortgaging or remortgaging – my team and I are here to help. Not just now – but in the years ahead.

If you have any questions or queries, feel free to use the Facebook chat feature, which will directly put you in contact with our advisors for advice and information.  Else, feel free to call us on 028 7131 1103.

Make the Smart Move and give us a call on 028 7131 1103 to start your journey home.
