OUR TEAM

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.

My career been focused on financial service, from being an Independent Financial and Mortgage Adviser, to being Network Mortgage Manager for TSB.
