“MHBS is a well-regarded, successful lender so I’m excited to be joining the team.

I’m looking forward to getting out and about, meeting new brokers and reconnecting with familiar faces. Having worked as an intermediary, I know they work with lots of lenders who all have different ways of working.

I’m here to make the MHBS journey as smooth and straightforward as possible.

Brokers place their trust in us every time they give us a case and I’m passionate about taking any pain out of the process to deliver the best possible outcome for them and their clients.”
