Meet the Team

Lee Adams – Independent Mortgage Consultant and UK & Overseas Mortgage Specialist

Lee brings professionalism, unwavering energy, and an unfailing commitment to provide the best independent mortgage advice to his wide portfolio of UK and worldwide high net worth and expat clients.

As a key member of the deVere Mortgages team, Lee also brings over 20 years of top level financial services experience, garnered through leading names in the financial services industry.

Along the way, Lee has backed up his expertise with industry-recognised qualifications in financial services, financial planning and the provision of independent financial advice. deVere Mortgages helps thousands of people to purchase and re-mortgage properties overseas and it was the company’s global client base that enticed Lee to take up his position within the organisation.

Lee explains: “Previously I’d been servicing UK based clients but the opportunity to join one of the world’s leading financial advisory companies and service a truly worldwide client base was irresistible.

I’m proud to say that with 20 years of experience in the financial services industry my opinion is now valued and sought after by a unique high net worth and expat client base that extends to each continent.”

Key to Lee’s professional work ethic is to be able to provide advice that is truly independent, something banks and building societies often find difficult to do. Through deVere Mortgages, and drawing on a database of some 200 lenders, Lee is proud to be able to truly deliver the most effective bespoke mortgage solutions to his clients.

Away from work, Lee likes nothing more than spending time with his wife Esther, daughter Iris and son Jonah – a commitment that ensures he’s always got two feet firmly planted on the ground.
