Equity Release Specialist


Responsible Life Ltd


Equity Release

I am a wife, mother of 3 grownups and a grandmother to 4 beautiful children. I enjoy watching sports especially Rugby, Netball, women’s football, and UFC/Boxing. I played competitive netball for 40 years and in my head I still can, but my body keeps saying no, no, no!
I am very passionate about my work having helped my own parents go through this process over 15 years ago when seemed less regulated than it is these days. I love that I can help people. There is nothing more rewarding than a customer saying thank you it has changed my life.
I also run a B&B called Finch Cottage in the Woodford Valley here in Salisbury and was very fortunate to be on the TV Show "four-in-a-bed" in 2020, which was great fun. Thankfully, the other B&B'ers were lovely, and we all keep in touch since being on the show.
I am a great believer in self-development, so I ensure that I keep improving myself. Having just completed a mental health first aid course, not only to ensure I am looking after my own mental health but also so that I can help my friends, family, and my customers.

Thank You Dee and Stephen”.(Trustpilot review).

I offer an initial meeting/discussion either by telephone or face to face without obligation and without charge. Together, we would work through the following: Whether equity release is a suitable route for you now or possibly later.
I’ll explain in full how equity release works and its impact on you & others.
Discuss all alternatives and provide access to these options if needed.
My recommendation will be based on your needs.
If the recommended route is to proceed with an arrangement, then you will be presented with a Key Facts Illustration (a client specific illustration).
If you are fully happy to proceed, I will help you with the application process.
When an application is completed, you will receive a suitability letter that will fully explain why the Equity Release product has been chosen.
Please feel free to call me for a non-obligation informal chat to see if equity release is right for you or not, as it's not right for everyone.
