I am head of sales for bridging & development finance, I have been with West One for 6 & a half years, I have been in financial services for 17 years, so I have a wealth of experience and knowledge.


I am passionate about being able to see a deal complete, from end-to-end, and be able to move quickly to get it over the line. It gives me great job satisfaction to play a role in making that happen. Our industry is built on existing and new relationships, so this is key for me.



Matthew Watson

Head of Sales, Buy-to-Let & Bridging - South (City & South West London, Berks, Surrey, Hampshire) +44 (0)7584 165 082

Region: South and East London


My first role in the financial services part of the industry was through Enterprise Finance as a BDM (part of Enra Specialist Finance). Overall, I have now been working in the property industry for 9 years and in property finance for 6 of those.


I love being able to help people achieve their goals, be that moving home or completing development for investment reasons. I love doing deals and there’s no better feeling than being able to call my introducer or client to give the good news and let them know their loan has been completed.


Fun fact - In 2019 took part in an organised “banger rally” for Charity driving from Cornwall to Morocco in fancy dress, raised over £2000 for Alzheimer's UK.
