“We undertook a review of our financial services offering in 2012 and concluded that we needed a partner, who was an expert in financial services for estate agents, to help us develop.
“Over the next six months we met a number of potential partners before choosing MAB. It is always difficult when choosing a partner to know whether they will really make a difference. However, throughout our first year with MAB, they have worked very closely with us and helped to achieve a significant improvement in our financial performance.
“MAB have been particularly helpful with recruiting high calibre advisers which fit the culture of our business. Not only that, they have given us the confidence to try new ideas, leading to increased productivity per adviser.
“The direct support we receive from Gareth, Simon, Barry, Sharon and Bridget, has been really well received by our advisers. With their help I am sure that we will continue to grow the business and I would suggest to anyone thinking of partnering their financial services, to talk to MAB.”
“We have worked with Mortgage Advice Bureau for over 2 years, the modern transparent marketing that MAB supply, enables our in house mortgage advisers not only offer great whole of market advice but also market themselves as the voice of mortgages in our area.
“It’s a winning combination and our sales teams love the support that MAB offer.
“Having worked with other mortgage companies over the years it’s great to work with a forward thinking business that mirrors our own philosophy of business…simple things done well.”
“We have been licensed with MAB since 1st March 2013 and we have been delighted with the close attention that we’ve received from our Regional Sales Director, Lee Smith and our Business Development Manager, Adam Naylor.
“They have helped us turn our Financial Services business around. We are a six branch Estate Agency chain, with four consultants based in Essex and have never charged fees in the past. The monthly training and guidance has helped us generate fees, between our four consultants in the first three months, of £37,618, whilst increasing our Life Penetration from 40% to 47%.
“Our average case size has risen by almost £500 and our pipeline is bigger than it’s ever been.
“I am very confident that with MAB’s continued support, our profits will increase by approximately 35% after a full years trading with them.
“We would strongly recommend MAB to any Estate Agency/Financial Services business.”

“DB Roberts has been introducing to Mortgage Advice Bureau for a number of years and we have been continually impressed with all areas of the support provided.
“New and unique initiatives, such as Mover Protection, provide real value to our customers and the ability to offer all schemes in the marketplace, including direct and exclusive deals, gives us a tangible edge over our competitors.
“I can’t recommend Mortgage Advice Bureau highly enough!”
“The move to MAB for our company has been a breath of fresh air in the way they understand the needs of an Estate Agency based Financial Services company. The ‘off the shelf’ marketing is fantastic and has allowed us to use a strong brand to promote our business from the Deal of The Week in the branch windows to the bespoke brief your market emailing.
“The tools that are now integrated on our property website are extremely user friendly and will give a potential purchaser a great indication of what the property they are looking at will cost them on a monthly basis and what their borrowing potential is likely to be as well as the costs involved in purchasing a property.
“We have a strong synergy with MAB in our passion for protection and have always had a big focus in this area, this has been supported with MAB providing a protection strategy which is a series of workshops with Advisors which has seen our protection sales increase even further.”
