Just Mortgages has given the green light to further expansion of its specialist New Build division. The team is set to reach 23 brokers by the end of Q1 2020 – up from eight at the start of 2019. On the back of a successful year, there are now plans for the broker force to more than double in size over the next two years.
The Just Mortgages New Build division works directly with developers to ensure prospective purchasers have access to face-to-face advice from a fully-qualified broker. This differs from other leading broker firms, whose offering is predominantly telephone-based.
A Just Mortgages broker will meet with buyers to discuss their circumstances, help them identify their mortgage and protection needs, and work with them to find the most suitable financial solution on an individual basis.
This ensures that customers are getting the advice they need. Through brokers’ relationships with developers, it also gives them peace of mind that purchases are moving to completion as quickly as possible.
There is no contract and no obligation to use Just Mortgages brokers. Liability remains with Just Mortgages and an introduction fee is available.
The further growth of its New Build division will enable Just Mortgages to offer this service to a wider range of developers and prospective purchasers.
Alongside the growth in broker numbers, the division has also taken on new business development and managerial staff. Most recently, Rebecca Ferguson has joined the team and will be supporting developers in the north-west of England, working closely with divisional sales director Ciaran Wilkinson.
John Doughty, financial services director for Just Mortgages New Build, commented: “There is strong demand for new housing but it’s important that would-be buyers get the right mortgage deal.
“We’re committed to working with developers to help purchasers access the finance they need.
“It’s important that Just Mortgages brokers deliver our service in person. This enables us to build a strong relationship with developers, estate agents and with potential purchasers.”
