Sara Reed CeMAP
Property Finance Adviser

Sara is a Property Finance Adviser. She joins Phil Moore in guiding clients through the mortgage and protection maze.

Sara knows nothing beats knowledge gained from years of graft – her career path has led from reception work for a firm of London-based solicitors via the corporate ladder in retail banking to being a branch manager for TSB.

Fifteen years in this role meant not only having general managerial responsibilities, such as looking after her team, but also hands-on experience with customers looking for mortgage and savings products. She holds the Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) and the Certificate in Retail Banking Conduct of Business (CertRBCB). She now adds this wealth of qualified experience to the team at Rouse.

She didn’t get where she is today by being soft and Sara always applies a professional but friendly approach to her roles. Customer service is paramount to her work ethic. Fashion and music genres might have changed dramatically since she first entered the world of work but Sara’s ‘can-do’ attitude remains robust.

When she’s not attending to customers’ needs Sara loves a music festival, particularly the handily local IW Festival. For quiet times she’s happy curled up with a good book.

An energetic soul, she also likes nothing more than a refreshing swim, or perhaps a bracing walk in the south of the Island around Ventnor and Bonchurch. Another of her favourite spots is the enigmatic Steephill Cove where, she says, looking out to sea you can imagine yourself anywhere in the world.

But she’s not content with armchair travelling: looking to the future she sees herself discovering the delights the UK has to offer before perhaps heading further afield.

Sara’s caring side clearly runs deep as in another life she thinks she might have been a counsellor, helping people to find their path again. In this life we’re very happy that she’s joined the team here at Rouse where we help customers every step of the way.
