What is the best thing about being in the bridging finance business?

Having a passion for property, finance and sales means this industry ticks all my boxes. I really enjoy building relationships with our customers and learning something new every day.

What keeps you focused?

Focusing on team and individual targets keeps me focused. I love to hit targets and try to exceed them, highlighting my value to the company.

What qualities do you look for in your employees or colleagues?

The most important quality I look for is being a team player. We are all working towards a shared end goal so if we can work together effectively, I believe we succeed together.

Being friendly and enthusiastic are also great qualities, as they can make the work life environment positive for everyone around them.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I would say I am more optimistic than pessimistic although I would describe myself as realistic. I always try and remain balanced in life and that is probably why I see myself this way.

What did you want to be as a child?

I wanted to be a stuntman. I am not sure why; it must have been all the action films in the 1980’s that inspired me.

What will be the greatest challenge facing the bridging finance industry in the coming months?

The uncertainty caused by Covid is the biggest challenge for most industries, however, we have already survived the worst of it and I am looking forward to the rest of the year.

Who or what makes you laugh?

I love a bit of banter with friends and colleagues.

I think the funniest stand up I have seen, is still Eddie Murphy’s Delirious and Raw, they are hilarious and if you have not watched them, I would strongly recommend them both.

Do you dread Monday mornings?

I like Mondays; it is the beginning of a new week and I organise weekly 7 a side football on Monday evenings which I look forward to.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would take people for granted less and appreciate what I have more.

With whom would you most like to have dinner?

I would love to have dinner with John Barnes, he was my childhood hero and inspired me to support Liverpool football club. He seems down to earth and looks like he could recommend somewhere amazing to eat.
