What differentiates Sirius is our understanding that every deal requires an element of craft and artistry. Every deal is unique and each finance package skilfully structured to deliver a bespoke solution.
We provide specialist debt advisory for real estate finance transactions. Born out of our Essex based parent company, Brightstar Financial, we have a heritage of experience across investment, short-term, mortgage and development property finance. We strategically based our head office in the heart of the City of London; allowing us to easily access the financial institutions we work with and form closer relationships with decision makers. Four years ago, Sirius solely consisted of co-founders Nicholas Christofi and Robert Collins. We have since assembled a team of 25 consisting of arguably the most experienced and talented collection of real estate debt advisors in the market.
What distinguishes Sirius is our ability to balance the needs of the lender and the borrower. To create a deal that works for everyone is a complex process. It requires a firm that is strategic in its thinking, transparent in its communication, and highly connected. We have credit managers and underwriters from key lenders sitting in house on a weekly basis (weekly zoom catch ups during lockdown periods). This amplifies speed of decision making and problem solving for our client cases and further cements the strength of our relationships with the lenders.
Our years of experience have given us access to a plethora of contacts and ensure we receive the best possible level of service and expertise for our clients. We work hard to maintain strategic relationships with London’s leading professional teams including Valuers, Quantity Surveyors, Lawyers and Monitoring Surveyors. This allows us to leverage these relationships and ensure the entire development or acquisition process runs smoothly for our clients.
Most importantly to us, we have created a workplace culture second to none. Staff wellbeing is at the core of Sirius, confirmed by our group’s ‘The Sunday Times Best Small Company to Work For’ award in 2019 and 2020 and high staff retention. We have a team of incredible people living across London, who have the upmost respect for each other, are proud brand ambassadors and view Sirius as an extended family. This success filters through every other aspect of our business and makes working with us a positive experience for staff, lenders, clients and professional teams. We have maintained this camaraderie during the pandemic with regular zooms and, where permitted, an attendance rota for our Moorgate office ensuring everyone gets the opportunity to spend time with and continue to learn from and assist each other safely.
We are immensely proud of our 5* excellent rating on Trust Pilot with over 200 reviews praising our team for being well connected, diligent and going the extra mile. Successful client outcomes and long-term relationships built on trust are our hallmarks and for these reasons we believe we are the best London broker.
We would be proud winners of this much coveted award.
