Phil Days

I am the owner and director of Progress FS and have been a mortgage and protection advisor for over 33 years. I specialise mainly in the commercial loan market, which has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years and with Michael concentrating on the residential market, we have a perfect complement of skills that is split across the company. With Laura heading the administration with Ann and Zak we have a really strong team to advise and look after all our clients.


Michael is a vastly experienced mortgage and protection advisor with a passion for helping first time buyers get onto the property ladder. He really enjoys educating people on all things mortgage related through his highly successful and popular Tiktok and Youtube channels. Away from work he is most happy spending time with his wife, Danielle and daughter, Isla. They like to travel and he enjoy his regular holidays, whether that be abroad in the Sun or Camping in the rain.


I am a young and ambitious admin acting as one of the first port of call for our clients up until the keys to their new homes are in their hands. Currently, I am furthering my existing knowledge by studying for my CeMAP exam to one day be a mortgage advisor myself.


Ann joined Progress FS in January 2022 and is a point of contact for clients, lenders and conveyancers with any queries regarding mortgage applications. She is responsible for processing cases and ensuring they progress from application to completion in a smooth and timely manner. She also ensures that regulations with the FCA are up to date.


Laura’s role as sales administrator means that she works proactively on all aspects of the mortgage timeline, from initial enquiry to completion. She ensures that our clients are kept fully up dated at each stage of their journey with us, aiming to make the process as easy as possible. She works with Phil on all our commercial applications.
