Complete FS achieved its best month for new business since 2008 in March – with £50m of new applications.
Buy-to-let applications were up 14.2%, secured loans by 29.4% and bridging by 31.6% from Q1 2016.
Tony Salentino, director of Complete FS, said: “Complete FS has traded through three major recessionary cycles in its 25 years servicing the intermediary community.
“Our experience has shown that our long term success is not built on the product offering, however good that might be, but on the quality of the service we offer.
“Maintaining our high standards means that we aim to ensure that we have the personnel who share our belief in serving our customers.
“Our expansion is controlled and in that way we can constantly strive to improve our service while bringing new people into the business when we need them.
“The March figures were particularly satisfying as this was the best month’s trading we have had since the credit crunch and is a testament to the dedication, professionalism and commitment from all our team members.”
