The UK’s Elite Property Finance Master Broker

Our philosophy is to enhance the broker experience as close as possible to dealing with the lender direct


When we are presented with a lending application, we always strive to get to know the detail of what is behind the project so we can play our part in making it a reality. If this happens, we are rewarded and so too is the client, their professional advisors, and the lender.

However, if we feel that the proposal is unlikely to attract funding support in its current format that is where our expertise comes into play.

We will either provide the guidance and support necessary to get the proposal funded or provide early notification if we feel that the deal is not going to attract support.

On a daily basis, we hear anecdotal stories of clients who have been led down the garden path and incurred fees and costs only for the deal to fall away later on in the process.

If a funding deal makes sense and stacks up, we do all in our power to make it happen. Equally, if we can see pitfalls ahead we anticipate them and ensure that the client and broker are aware of them thus saving time and money all round.
