It’s time to talk turkey!

We are all about straight talking, and the festive season – with all its distractions – is a good time to just get to the nub of things: a time to talk turkey.

When asked to talk turkey about our offering to brokers, Laura Sneddon, Head of Mortgage Sales, responded with a single word: “Flexibility.” Referring to the Society’s open-minded approach to complex cases, Laura continued:

“We’re incredibly flexible for people whose requirements are non-standard. We remove barriers for clients with complex incomes, adverse credit, and those who need a x5.5 income multiple – with no minimum income requirement.”

Asked for a word, Christopher Holmes, Senior Products Manager, said: “Tailored.”

“We specialise in bespoke mortgages, including tailored products for buy-to-let, multiple borrowers, and for self-builders. That we were awarded Best Self Build Mortgage Lender at the Build It Awards 2023, shows how focused we are on the specialist market.”

Lizzie Atkins, Internal Sales Team Leader, offered her word: “Service.”

“I lead a fantastic team that’s dedicated to answering brokers’ calls and emails promptly, and to dealing with all cases with lightning efficiency. We’re really nice people to do business with, and we’re all about straight talking and getting things done.”

Carolyn Thornley-Yates, Director of Mortgage Proposition, gave her word: “Yes!” Explaining this, Carolyn said:

“Our Mortgage Referrals Committee has been a gamechanger for brokers. Feedback from our monthly ‘MRC Live’ events shows that brokers really appreciate our manual approach to lending. Our flexibility means we can say ‘Yes!’ more often – and to cases that many lenders generally cannot.”
