Meet the Team


Jules Held
Managing Director

Jules set up Maytree Mortgages with the clear mandate of putting every single client and their needs first. She decided to begin her journey as a mortgage adviser after a muddled and underwhelming experience buying her own first home in 2005. 

After a lengthy spell as a credit assessment manager for a major global company she embarked on her mission to shake up client service in the mortgage industry. After several years working for a leading London mortgage brokership, she launched and begun developing Maytree Mortgage’s unique bespoke service. At weekends when she’s not on call, you’ll find her tidying up after her two energetic dogs Hugo and Silvio, driving fast cars or devouring The Sopranos box set for the 26th time.

Sean Held
Director: Brand, Marketing & Communications

A Maytree Mortgages co-founder, Sean’s background is in sports journalism and construction.

As he enters his forties his creaking bones still allow him to play competitive vets football for Imperial College and cricket in the spring and summer months. After hours and at weekends you’ll often find him at the golf course or driving range, but rarely with clubs in hand. Sean’s job is to chaffeur his daughter - her game continues to soar while his stagnates.

One key role of Sean’s is keeping Jules, the lifeblood of the business, in coffee and promoting her unique skill set as a leading female broker in a predominantly male dominated market.

Jo is excited to join the Maytree Mortgages team and brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise. She provides a personal, reassuring service, offering high-quality and ethical advice.

Justine Cook
Mortgage Adviser

Justine is a newly qualified mortgage and protection broker with a background in Account Management and Customer Relationship Management. She took a career break to enjoy her kids for 5 years and now the youngest is starting school she is excited to get back to business. 

A black belt in Excel spreadsheet formulas, Justine has always enjoyed providing excellent customer service and loves meeting new people. She spends her free time socialising, reading and – before the births of her kids – travelling. Now she looks forward to the occasional well-deserved early night and converting her garage into a state of the art playroom.
