The packaging and commercial arms of SMS will start to distribute Commercial First’s range of products immediately via its network of supporting mortgage brokers.

“Solent Mortgage Services is a strong brand that is well respected within the mortgage industry,” commented Stephen Johnson, sales and marketing director of Commercial First. “It’s got an excellent management team and a clear idea about where it wants to be in 12 months time. Offering a new concept in commercial mortgages is a key part of the SMS strategy going forward and I’m delighted that the company has chosen to form a close alliance with us.”

The decision of SMS to join forces with Commercial First follows hot on the heels of similar deals that the lender has negotiated with other players including Black and White Mortgage Group, ICMG and the General Finance Centre.
