Gareth's Daughters

our company

Isla Grace Mortgages was founded in 2019 by Gareth Walsh. As a family-orientated business, Isla Grace is built upon the foundations of creating a legacy for Gareth’s daughters. The vision behind Isla Grace is to help people reach their dreams of home ownership, whilst making the process as smooth and least time consuming for them as possible.

Gareth Walsh - Company Director

Gareth has worked in the financial industry for over 15 years and in 2019 decided to open Isla Grace Mortgages. Away from the office Gareth can be found drinking a Negroni while spending time with his one true love… music (his wife is happy as his second true love). Gareth’s claim to fame is that he was actually a runner-up on a National Lottery game show called Break The Safe, 10 points if you can find the footage!

Steph Porter

Steph Porter - Head of Operations

Steph joined the Isla Grace Family in Autumn 2020 and works mainly on the administration side of things (emails, filing, and more emails!). In an ideal circumstance Steph would be by the pool with a Passion Fruit Martini, but most of the time she is in her wellies at the local park. Steph’s claim to fame is that she is a published artist on Spotify under the name ‘Stephanie Rose’.

Joella Sharples - Head of Content Creation

Joella joined the Isla Grace Family in Autumn 2021 and is leading the way with all of our social media, campaigns, and collaborations. If she's not sipping away at a Clover Club Cocktail with book in hand, you'll find Joella on a city break exploring new coffee shops and taking photos. Joella's claim to fame is that she was in a Bob the Builder magazine at the age of 6.
