Financial advice from the heart proved a winning combination for Disley-based mortgage adviser Nicola Smalley.

Nicola, of Sphere Financial Services Ltd, was named Best Protection Advisor - North at the recent Pink Service Awards.

The 37-year-old said the driving force behind her business ethic was a passion for ensuring customers had access to the best possible advice to protect their homes and mortgages, as well as a family-led focus.

“I won the award because I stuck to those principles,” said Nicola, who founded her business on both her previous financial sector experience and the lessons learned from the trauma of losing her father to cancer four years ago.
