We have never been Mortgage Brokers, and whilst I can add an additional category, and indeed have, I do not get the option to edit the Primary Category. Can you advise please?

@Steven G

have two questions:

1# what would be an appropriate category

and

2# since the listing is a verified listing: what do you see actually in your dahboard as specified category?

Can you please provide any screengrab showing the category as in your dashboard?

How to change your Google My Business Primary Category:

-Click the "Edit" button top-right of your business page.

-Click the "edit" pencil icon next to your category name(s).

Now here's the secret I couldn't find in Google Support pages:

-Click on your Primary Category name, and then...

   Hit the "Delete" key on your keyboard...

   You can now use your keyboard to delete/backspace/replace the old Primary Category with a new one.
