If I Were You – part of the Shepherds Direct Group – and comparethemarket.com have been partners since 2010.

The partnership has been extended for a further period allowing the brokerage to continue as the sole national partner for the provision of mortgage advice to comparethemarket.com’s customers seeking guidance on remortgaging, house purchase and buy to let.

In the three years since the partnership commenced If I Were You has serviced enquiries from tens of thousands of comparethemarket.com customers and as a result, large numbers of individuals have secured the mortgage finance they were seeking.

The provision of this end to end mortgage advice and processing service is operated out of Shepherd Direct’s group offices in Glasgow and Nottingham, providing advice to consumers right across the UK.

Sarah Tuck, head of mortgages at If I Were You, said: ”The relationship between If I Were You and comparethemarket.com goes from strength to strength and we are very pleased to be announcing an extension of that partnership.

“Both partners are committed to working together as is evidenced by the fact this new agreement is for a longer, extended period than before.”

Rob Clifford, group commercial director of Shepherd Direct, parent company of if I were you, added: “This working relationship is a terrific example of two businesses staying completely focused on what’s right for the consumer and delivering a combined service which works seamlessly.

“Thousands of comparethemarket.com customers have been helped by our mortgage advisers at If I Were You and I know that we will continue to deliver a quality advice service for future comparethemarket.com customers seeking impartial guidance.”
