As a broker, packagers can be a scary thought.

Brightstar were the first ones to get back to me with a great lender and rate. Yiannis was fab with dealing with the initial part and then I was allocated Billie Cox as my case handler. Billie was so communicative and kept me up to date so often I felt like we had become friends haha! It was fab. hands down the quickest app to offer with a packager I have ever dealt with. When there were certain criteria points to hit, she would get exceptions with the BDM and work with them closely so we could get a bespoke journey.
I have another client I am looking to place with them and I have already requested Billie as I have had such a good experience.

Savannah Banks-Gould, Mortgage Broker

Richard and Jacqui and the team at Brightstar were superb.

Rally great experience for us and our client, will certainly be calling them again. And have already done so. Thanks to these guys we got a very tricky case over the line, during a very fluid time in the financial markets.

David Griffith, Eden Hawk Financial Solutions

I had a unique case and the Brightstar team were incredible in helping to get this one placed and over the line.

The client was over the moon to complete and move into her new home. Rachel was excellent and her communication and speedy responses were very much appreciated. I would certainly recommend them and will use their services again if required.

Nick Fisher, PIA Financial Services

Had a very complicated and hard to place case with no extension available on his mortgage offer.

Cannot praise highley enough the good work that Chantelle Haley of Brightstar did on this case making sure the client secured his dream property.
