    Russell Hailstone

    Director / Mortgage Adviser

    Russell started his career in the mortgage business over 25 years ago with Constables Estate Agents. He was head hunted by Fulfords Estate Agents and, after several successful years working for Fulfords, he decided to set up his own mortgage business – and hasn’t looked back!

    Russell prides himself on offering friendly but professional advice to all clients, whilst providing impartial and expert mortgage guidance from the whole of the mortgage market.

    Out of work he loves playing golf, walking his dogs and, most importantly, holidays!

    Rachael Hailstone

    Protection Adviser

    Rachael Hailstone, Russell’s niece and Becky’s sister, left her career in the travel industry and joined Dart Mortgages in August 2016.

    Starting from scratch, Rachael attended many courses and studied hard to pass her protection exam which qualified her to recommend the most appropriate policies to protect clients, their families and their home.

    Rachael is happy to discuss all areas of protection in detail to make sure Dart Mortgages clients have the right protection plan in place.
     
    Rachael was born in Sidmouth but spent many days in Teignmouth visiting her grandparents, who lived here for many years, creating very many happy memories. Rachael and her partner had their first child in May 2017 and she is currently working part-time, offering flexible hours to suit clients’ needs.

    Her hobbies are looking after her young child, walking, baking and, of course, holidays!

    Protection Adviser

    Becky Hailstone, Russell’s niece and Rachael’s sister, joined the Dart Mortgages team in June 2017 as a self-employed Will Writer and progressed in to the Protection side of the business. Currently training to become a Mortgage Adviser, Becky hopes to join Russell on the mortgage side of the business in the near future.

    Working with the mortgage admin team is giving Becky a great insight to the whole mortgage process and keeping her to date with the latest requirements from the lenders.
