We believe that mortgages shouldn’t be scary! We aim to ensure that you’re hand held through the process and feel comfortable enough to answer any number of questions you may have. Our advisors will get to know your individual circumstances, we’ll look at what your goals are and then advise you on the way to get there ensuring the right mortgage and protection arrangements are made for you. We want you to be comfortable with us, so we’ll explain a little about ourselves and the way that we are structured.

Ultimately we just really like helping people, it's why we do what we do… We like nothing more than receiving thankyou’s from the clients that we’ve helped, it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy and it’s good to know that we’ve made a difference.

Mike Nankivell

Mortgage & Protection Advisor

Mike has been a great addition to the team, he’s gaining tons of valuable experience and sorting all types of mortgages and protection. He’s always upbeat and takes the time to really explain all the questions a client may have.   Outside of work Mike is keen on two main things – Football (Long term Spurs sufferer) and all things fast and BMW. Being a true petrolhead, he regularly attends shows, track days and car meets. Mike is passionate about charity and supports the Rooprai Spinal Trust. Mike has tried to kill Barry! Almost 10 years ago he drove him off a cliff (Thelma & Louise style) in the Italian Alps near the Swiss border, it’s all OK though as he landed it in a tree – very skilled driving! No-one was hurt thankfully and someone in the Alps has a highly unusual Lexus tree house!

Leonie Grieg

Mortgage Administrator & Trainee Broker

Leonie has been in financial services for over 6 years and started on an apprenticeship scheme. She’s a key member of the team and without her the admin side would fall apart!   Clients love her as she hand holds them through their journey to mortgage offer. She also assists the team on gliding through paperwork, mortgage submissions, compliance and is the most organised member of the MM team. Sometimes she needs help getting the rest of the team (mainly Barry) organised which isn’t too hard as she’s the most feared team member - the brokers are a bit scared of her!   Outside of work she’s a busy Mum, loves a bit of trashy TV, the odd beauty treatment and likes socialising with friends! We’ve also learnt the hard way that she can outdrink the rest of the team!
