Hello, my name is Raquel, I am based in Kent and one of the independent, whole of market equity release advisers with award winning Equity Release Supermarket.
I have been in financial services since 1995 and completed full financial planning certification with the Chartered Insurance Institute. I elected to specialise in mortgage lending from the outset and this wealth of experience and genuine interest in forging great relationships with clients has led to much of my business being built from referrals, something I take a great pride in.
It is a great pleasure to be able to help clients navigate the equity release process so they can enjoy their retirement and achieve the best possible financial outcomes.
Taking time to understand my clients’ goals and aspirations, thoroughly researching options available and presenting a bespoke solution in a ‘user friendly’ way is extremely rewarding, particularly when I see the enormous difference it can make to the quality of people’s lives.
The transformation of later life mortgage products in recent years has given people more opportunities to access property wealth at competitive and affordable rates and it’s increasingly being viewed as a key component of modern retirement.
With a vast array of later life lending options, features and flexibility, it can be daunting, so expert advice and ability to research the whole of the market is essential.
Outside of work, I am a DIY enthusiast and have enjoyed many property renovations. I love the outdoors too, gardening and long walks with my partner and the hound in glorious Kent countryside. As a fully qualified yoga instructor I enjoy keeping fit with my own practice and helping others regain movement and build strength and flexibility.
Whatever stage of your equity release journey, I welcome the opportunity to assist, so please do make contact and we can look at the best solution to suit your personal circumstances.
Thank you for taking the time to read my page and I look forward to hearing from you.
