Success stories

A Bridge to Happiness

Published by Nicholas Shepherd, 2024
When the client of a local broking firm needed finance to purchase her dream home, traditional lenders declined as her funds were held up overseas.

Start Point Finance is a fiercely independent, local brokering firm. Founder Tim Jones has over 30 years’ industry experience from both a broker and a lender point of view having worked at Merrill Lynch, Standard Chartered Bank and Abbey National.

Tim explains: “Our client wanted to purchase a property in Plymouth but as her funds were tied up overseas, traditional lenders weren’t interest despite the significant security on offer. Refreshingly, Bricks understood the bigger picture.”

Nick Shepherd, Bricks Loan Officer said: “Tim and I worked seamlessly together to provide a regulated £650K bridging loan in good time for his client to complete the purchase of her new home.”

Tim said: “The process was fast and well managed. We will use Bricks again.”
