3mc is an award-winning specialist mortgage desk for mortgage intermediaries and a packager of Residential, Buy to Let, Commercial and Bridging mortgages.
2018 is 3mc’s 22nd year of trading within the business to business sector. During 2017 3mc processed over £2.3 Billion of specialist mortgage enquires. 3mc deals with lenders on a volume basis that intermediaries would not normally deal with on a regular basis utilising their knowledge and skills assisting intermediaries from enquiry through to completion.
When dealing with 3mc you gain access to lenders with restricted access along with access to 3mc exclusives. The customer remains the customer of the intermediary and the intermediary is the customer of 3mc. The intermediary receives the market procuration fee as the lender pays 3mc a gross packaging fee which includes the intermediary’s market procuration fee. In 2017 3mc launched a new introducer service for portfolio landlords where you can pass the client to 3mc and 3mc will take over the advice and recommendation process in return for a percentage of the gross commission received.
3mc prides itself on its independent status working with directly authorised intermediaries and appointed representatives of all partner networks. The 3mc mortgage desk has a wealth of experience assisting mortgage intermediaries in the placement of their cases across their entire specialist panel of lenders.
