Each week Mortgage Solutions and its sister title Specialist Lending Solutions looks back at the week's most thoughtful, thought provoking and controversial comments to single out the Star Letter.
This week our Star Letter goes to Des Platt for his comment under the article: Lender: ‘We don’t want to feel like cash cows for trade show events’.
He said: “As a broker, I nearly always come away with a contact who turns out to be useful for the future at this sort of event; in particular with mutual building societies.
“It would never put me off trying a new lender, not having met them – to me that is one of the elements of variety that makes it a great job. However, it is a help to have met at a seminar before ringing and discussing a case.”
