You already managed it. I searched for NAIRASIEZT MORTGAGES and your site was the top one! In fact, it was the top-three all on its own.

It's more difficult if you only search for MORTGAGES. That gives 25.800.000 hits. They all want the top position, of course, but only 1 can have it. And that's not you, at the moment. In fact, it's quite unlikely you will reach that in the foreseeable future, I'm afraid. But with the right SEO you might be able to go from #20.000.000 to #15.000.000.
