Meet the team
Ivona Lord established Independent Mortgage Solutions in 2004. Having worked in banking and mortgage broking for many years, Ivona was keen to be able to provide an independent and unbiased service with advice tailored to her clients’ individual circumstances.
“Everyone deserves the right to great advice and we are incredibly proud of the service which our friendly and knowledgeable team provide. The majority of our business comes from referrals from satisfied clients, which speaks volumes.”
Sarah Lister joined Independent Mortgage Solutions in 2006. Originally from an estate agency background, Sarah has an in-depth knowledge of the housing market and is an expert at guiding clients through the entire homebuying process.
“Quite often we see people who have been turned down or been told that they cannot borrow what they need by their own banks. They come here expecting us to say the same and are often pleasantly surprised when they find out that we can help them.”
Minisha Kirkpatrick has worked within the mortgage industry for many years for both small businesses and banks. As a fully qualified adviser, Minisha enjoys helping people to achieve their goals and she is currently specialising in re-mortgages and protection.
“A mortgage is often the largest financial decision in life and therefore it is vital that you understand the product you are committing to, as well as getting a good deal that works with your circumstances. The market is constantly changing, so this is equally true whether you are a first time buyer or re-mortgaging for the 10th time.”

She enjoys helping clients understand the advice given to them for their mortgage and protection needs. In her spare time, she can be found in the kitchen baking lots of tasty treats.
“I think its really important for everyone to understand what’s available to them and not to get overwhelmed with lots of jargon, having an open space to not be afraid to ask questions and been guided through the house buying journey confidently.”
