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’re here when you need us and are more than just 9-5. We want to be your long term, go to guys for mortgages and want to be with you from your first mortgage until you’re mortgage free. 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.

Barry has a relaxed demeanour and feedback from clients say that he makes the mortgage and buying process easy and understandable.  Outside of work, it’s all about Family, with three children he doesn’t get much spare time but when he does he likes to play with anything with an engine and has an interest in classic cars and motor racing.  Past fundraising has included cycling, a parachute jump, a European road trip and running away from charging bulls in the Pamplona Bull Run.

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!

Hayley is simply brilliant and clients love her upbeat attitude and willingness to go the extra mile and never give up on helping clients into their dream, homes! She’s been in financial services for over 15 years and has a real depth of experience ranging from working in a high street bank to later specialising in helping clients with credit blips, missed payments and CCJ’s.

When away from work Hayley loves being a mum and with 3 girls to run around after she’s always super busy although loves the odd spa break or weekend away for some well-deserved “Hayley time!” Hayley is always upbeat, has a smile on her face and an absolute heart of gold, we’re proud to have her as part of our team!

Sarah Horne

Mortgage Office Manager

Sarah is always smiling and upbeat which is surprising as she has to work with Barry! With her years of experience managing many brokers, she easily manages to keep the team organised. She is brilliant in assisting clients with getting their mortgages offered, negotiating underwriters, surveyors, solicitors right through to exchange and completion of their property promptly and efficiently.  Outside of work, Sarah’s priority is her family. She is a proud mother to a couple of energetic kids who keep her very busy being Taxi to tons of different clubs! She’s a family Hide & Seek champion, the children usually find her hiding from them with a large glass of wine!

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!
