The Mortgage Mum is delighted to announce that they are launching into the Specialist Finance space, with the creation of their brand-new Sister company, The Mortgage Mum Specialist Finance, an Approved Representative of New Leaf Distribution.

The team will deal with development finance, commercial buy to let, short term bridging finance, complex buy to let and adverse credit as well as being able to access other finance for businesses and individuals that are considered high net worth.  Whether supporting people to play out their self-build property dream, grow their portfolio, up level their business or enable a multi-million pound housing site, The Mortgage Mum Specialist Finance will be on hand to help. 

With a focus on aspirational investors and providing educational content in line with their main brand, The Mortgage Mum feel they can offer a unique, and much needed service in this growing sector of the market. 

With the recent expansion of The Mortgage Mum brand extending to National television and radio, combined with their offering of a Nationwide team of female brokers, they have noticed more and more requests from clients across the UK expressing that they would love this service to be offered in-house.

Sarah Tucker, founder of The Mortgage Mum said “We have noticed aspirational investors and experienced developers coming to us, looking for our company to nurture them through the process. They want more of a 1:1 service, and more education wrapped around their advice, and feel comfortable to approach us to ask for this. They trust us ultimately, which is wonderful. We have always taken great pride in providing a bespoke VIP service, completely tailored to the client, and it’s a core USP of ours alongside the fact we are an all-female team that deal with things a little differently. The female touch is needed in all areas of the mortgage market, but as with all our new ventures, we’ve been waiting for the right time. We’ll always be led by the needs of our broking team and our clients, and we’re thrilled that the right time is now. We are all really excited about it!”

The division will be led by Shelley Walker, who has been appointed as Director of Specialist Finance alongside her Senior Mortgage Broker title. Shelley was one of the founding members of The Mortgage Mum in its launch in 2019 and has been at the centre of the company’s growth and meteoric rise. She has a rapidly expanding client base, particularly in the specialist sector, and has developed close relationships that made her the ideal woman to take this division forward. “We’ve always known Shelley would be the one to do this when the time was right, and she’s already providing herself to be brilliant!” Sarah and Jamie said.

Shelley said, “I’m so excited about this and it feels like now is the right time! Many female clients have been approaching us recently, openly looking for other inspirational women in the development space, and they haven’t found many. This year The Mortgage Mum has become a Nationally trusted brand, and clients in this space are looking to work with a company and a team that they can completely trust. Someone who can guide them through every aspect of their goals and work with them on an ongoing basis. We build a uniquely strong bond with our clients, and as an active investor myself, we bring a lot of life experience, and passion to every single project. Every case and client feels very exciting and very personal.”

Jamie Lewis, Co-Founder and Director of The Mortgage Mum, and Managing Director of The Affinity Group is excited to be working on and facilitating this new company, having extensive experience in this field through his own specialist business. He said “We at The Mortgage Mum have always offered something different in the mortgage space, bringing with them a service that is unique, fresh and ultimately needed. And this new venture is no exception! I am thrilled to be part of the next stage of the company’s growth and movement and am looking forward to creating another Mortgage Mum success story. This team of women are fiercely passionate in their client service, and I am sure they are going to bring a fantastic new energy to the specialist space.”

Daniel Hobbs, Managing Director of New Leaf Distribution, “We are really proud to support The Mortgage Mum venture into specialist finance. This is a company and brand that we have been really impressed with watching grown and the culture of the firm aligns with our network. The support they give to new advisers in particular is vital for our industry. As a network, it is fantastic for us to be able to offer firms like The Mortgage Mum the ability to move into markets where they would usually face restrictions and to help them achieve their business goals but also the goals of their clients.”
