Our fascinating guest on this edition of MI Talk is Sam Whittlesea, from Whittlesea Mortgages. He shares how, through client referrals, he has built a business that’s proud to be smaller; to offer a more personal service. His was an unusual journey into the world of mortgages, from a background working with disadvantaged young people. But Whittlesea believes there’s a connection between his earlier and present jobs. “They’re both advisory roles, they’re both mentoring roles, they’re both helping people move forward with their lives in different ways,” he affirms.
