Colleen Sykes

Mortgage Broker | Fareham, Hampshire

Leaving banking in 2019 with the intention of retiring to spend time with her new puppy, Colleen soon found that she wasn’t quite ready to stop helping people with their financial goals and aspirations but didn’t want to commit to commuting and long hours away from home again!

With over 30 years of experience in several aspects of the mortgage industry having passed CeMap in 2000, her career has been predominantly in relationship management and leadership.  For 14 years she worked closely with the mortgage brokers and their networks educating them extensively on products types and policies.  For the last 5 years Colleen led a team of relationship managers specialising in the Premier customers servicing all their financial needs.

Colleen decided that she wanted to use her expertise to give mortgage advice but wanted to join a company that supported her through her journey and allowed her the flexibility to continue to enjoy some of the elements of retirement combined with continuing to help people achieve their dreams.

“I loved the ethos and culture of The Mortgage Mum, not only does it support women wanting to train to be a mortgage broker and have flexibility around their careers but it also has a fantastic internal support network of wonderful women!”

Colleen has a grown-up daughter, a stepson and a gorgeous cockerpoo whom she loves to take on long country walks. Whilst not working Colleen enjoys travelling with her husband, experiencing different cultures and lifestyles both here in the UK and abroad. She also gives up her time to help build classrooms in the townships of Cape Town and volunteers with a local charity.
