Valerie Weeks

Mortgage Adviser CeMAP, Managing Director

Hello I’m Valerie, owner and founder of OPS Financial Advice.

I started my career in financial services in 1980 with Barclays Bank. I began in retail banking looking after personal customers, then became a small business manager and finally moved to Barclays Wealth Management.  I really enjoyed those times and gained fantastic experience in helping all types of customers in varying situations.

After 26 years, I knew that I could provide a much more personal and financially bespoke service on my own, so in 2005 I said goodbye to Barclays, became self-employed and started to help customers source the right mortgage and protection services.

16 years later, how time flies, I’m now helping the young adult children of some of my very first mortgage customers.

I’ve had experience in buying residential homes, development projects and properties to let. I know what a tense, but exciting, time it can be.

With my knowledge you can be assured that you will receive the best and most cost-effective arrangements for your own house buying projects.

Call or email me and let’s start talking.



Chris Lewis

Senior Mortgage Administrator

Chris has worked in financial services since 2007 helping to look after clients’ mortgage applications. Chris really is the backbone of the team. His knowledge of lender processing is invaluable in helping to provide an efficient service. When he’s away from the office Chris has a beautiful young family to keep him fully occupied. Oh and he does have a second love… football.


David Turnbull

Protection Advisor CeMAP

I have a solid background in all types of protection requirements, with 10 years of experience helping clients.

I’m here to guide you in making the right choices for you and your loved ones and to give you peace of mind in knowing that you’ve made the right choices.

I offer a personal service to suit you, whether that’s face-to-face, via email or phone calls.

When I’m not working I love going to the gym and taking the dog out for long walks.
