Managing Director

About Andy
I started Response Mortgage Services in June 2005 following on from a period of being a Financial Adviser for one of the large national insurance companies. At Response Mortgage Services we have always had the ethos that customer service is key to our success and this is still our major strength. I am lucky to have a great team of staff around me who are all at the top of their game.

I look to personally get involved with all kinds of financial enquiries, (normal residential mortgages, specialist buy to let mortgages, commercial & development finance as well as making sure all our clients are fully protected against the worst happening too). Away from work I love any kind of sport (more watching these days than playing!)

My 2 boys (Josh & Alfie) play rugby – which dictates what we do with our weekends (and we are massive Leeds Rhinos fans). I am married to Lesley and as well as my 2 boys I also have a teenage daughter (Georgi) who is also growing up too fast.

About Grace
I joined Response Mortgages in 2018, bringing with me numerous years of experience as a Mortgage and Protection Advisor in an estate agent environment.

The main focus for me is the customer’s journey; from start to finish I want to maintain and ensure customer satisfaction so that my customers can buy their dream home stress-free!

As well as spending time with my husband, family and friends, my time is filled enjoying music concerts, festivals and travelling to new places.

About Samantha
I have worked with Response since 2008 and done various roles along the way.  I qualified to be an Independent Financial Advisor in 2010, and since then have been specialising in financial protection for the last few years.  I can’t imagine working anywhere else, as I love the ethos here at Response of putting clients’ needs first, no matter what – it enables me to sleep at night!

My husband and I have a little dog that we dote on and enjoy taking for walks.  We also love travelling, reading and cooking – and eating!

About Josh

I started working for Response Mortgages after finishing High School in 2019. Since then, I have learned a lot from working at Response Mortgages part-time on a weekend as well as full-time during the school holidays and this has given me a good start in the Financial Services Industry. I will continue to work at Response Mortgages whilst studying Sports Coaching at Leeds City College as well as training and playing for Leeds Rhinos CAT 3 Academy.
