You wish to advise your client but use the services of Brightstar to manage the process with the lender on your behalf.

Giving you access to a huge range of specialist mortgage solutions.

Straightforward mortgage applications are becoming increasingly rare, which is why we are seeing rapid growth within the specialist residential lending industry. We know that many people do not fit mainstream lending criteria for a variety of reasons and our objective is to meet the needs of your clients through our strong lender partnerships and a range of innovative products, via our comprehensive lending panel.

It can be more timely to search a market you’re not familiar with to ensure you’re getting the best deal for your client. We understand our market and the lenders criteria intimately, so we can take the time burden off your hands. Additionally, we have access to lenders that you may not be able to deal directly with, as well as some of the sectors leading exclusives, including our very own products under our Private Label brand.


What is a specialist mortgage?

A specialist mortgage is when the deal makes sense but rigid automated decision systems used by many mainstream lenders are not able to take a view, so the client falls foul of a ‘computer says no’ situation. We partner with lenders who are able to judge each case on its own merits and price for the risk applicable to your client, enabling us to provide tailored solutions to fit individual circumstances.

What our brokers say.

Georgia and Simon are amazing!!  They managed to place a case no one else could and not only that but deliver a offer in a record breaking time frame!! They were persistent and communicated regularly. Myself and my client couldn’t be happier with their service – if I could give 10 stars, I would!! Thanks again to the both of you 🙂
