Andrea initially started working life with an Accountancy Firm in Warrington, after which she was offered a job working for First National Bank (which later became Santander) and spent 14 years living and breathing second charge mortgages.
Moving down South, Andrea was introduced to a packager who at the time was one of the country’s largest second charge mortgage packagers.
She decided that the need for a change in direction had arrived based purely upon that introduction and subsequently left the bank to set up stall as a packager. She and the bank became business partners and enjoyed 8 successful years and experienced the opportunities from her time on both sides
Talking to a lender one afternoon about short term finance following the chaos that was late 2008, she decided to find out more about this sector.
Falling in love with an industry that is so varied, she found then and still finds today that the challenges of completion deadlines and the thrill of pulling everyone together to meet clients’ requirements is very rewarding.
At Only Bridging, she is fortunate to work alongside a very strong team of people who are as passionate about what they do each day as indeed is she.
