Brightstar Financial – Secured Loan Broker nomination

Our Second Charge Team

Whilst our Second Charge team is not the biggest team compared to some in our market, it is the quality and expertise of our team that helps set us apart. They provide a hands on, specialist personal service which uses the benefits of sourcing technology to complement the work of the advisors when working on any application. This level of specialism ensures that our intermediaries and clients alike receive the level of care everyone should expect and deserve.

We have focused our application processing to make the customer journey as easy as possible, ensuring that process doesn’t prevent our advisors from concentrating on the important role of making recommendations and giving advice to clients which is easy to understand. Overall our approach delivers the highest possible standards of TCF. This is something that has been endorsed by lenders across the sector. This team currently sits as winner in our fiercely contested ‘Customer Service Division of the Month’ competition, consistently achieving outstanding reviews and achieving the ‘triple win’ over the last 3 months. Added to this, they converted 100% of their completed business loans into 5 star Trustpilot reviews: an outstanding achievement.

Our team has the expertise, knowledge and understanding to deliver expectations for our customer at every step of the journey. This is something that sets us apart.  We have the widest possible panel of lenders and are constant recipients of feedback from our partners on the quality submissions of our cases. We are champions for the second charge sector, helping to showcase the positive impact and growth of the sector.

Throughout the turbulent times of 2020 we have remained positive about our sector and supportive of all the key partners during their own difficulties as we all work together to succeed and provide the vital specialist lending solutions for our clients. We have been proud winners of this award before and would be delighted to do so again.
