Meet the Team


Hi I’m Samantha, and I run Sandpiper Mortgages.


Why choose Sandpiper? Because we make it personal.

At Sandpiper Mortgages you are not just a number. We like to get personal. Get to know you, get to know what you really want and how we can turn your dream into a reality. I set up Sandpiper mortgages to help people navigate their way through the system effortlessly, and I’ve made it my mission to make it easier and make it happen.

I’m not just a mortgage expert with a proven track record of success. I’m a mother, a home-maker, and a seasoned professional with an astute understanding of how much it means to buy the home that makes your heart sing. I listen, I communicate and I get results.

Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage

We charge fees between £250.00 and £995.00 dependent on complexity and Mortgage type payable on completion.

So why call it Sandpiper?

Why are we called Sandpiper Mortgages?  Well, Sandpiper was the name of my first property in Farlington, a two bedroom flat for which I scraped up the deposit by having a full-time job, an evening job and a Saturday job.  Purchased for £40,000 (it was the 90’s) and sold for £70,000 this set me up for a move to a little two up and two down in Southsea so I could be by the sea… or was it the pubs?

I have only ever had three proper “grown up” jobs, one in engineering (where I regularly held the drawings upside down to read), one selling tea for the best tea company in the world (Twinings) and finally Abbey National/Abbey/Santander where I spent 14 very happy years advising on pensions, investments and mortgages.  However, mortgages have always been my favourite financial service, as buying a house is so much more than a financial investment, it’s the cornerstone of a happy home life. Having the best mortgage for you and your family is where it all starts.

Call us, and let’s get started.
