Best Mortgage Adviser – Mortgage Advice Bureau

Best mortgage adviser

The Best Mortgage Adviser category was closely fought with the judges deliberating long and hard over a decision.
But this year the gong goes to Mortgage Advice Bureau for its overall contribution to the mortgage market, knocking last year’s winner London & Country Mortgages off the top spot.

Another said: “Peter Brodnicki has positioned himself as a leader in the industry – and not purely for the benefit of his own firm, which showed through.”
