Success stories

Clear Skies Ahead

Published by Nicholas Shepherd, 2023
The challenge was to renovate a part finished house, that had been empty for 12 years, and find a funder who would understand.

The first thing Bricks did was to meet face to face on site with the developer BluSkye – it might seem a little old fashioned but nothing beats a cuppa, a chat and a keen eye to get to know the team and understand the project.

Director Jonathan Blake said: “The loan facility was simple and easy to navigate, with straight forward conditions, and no jargon. Drawdowns were a breeze. The rules of engagement were easy to follow – once we’d hit planned milestones, funding was quick and painless.”

With funding from Bricks, BluSkye was able to pull together a team of individuals and businesses to save a part-built home from being demolished – and revive a small part of a picturesque Cornish village.

Although a relatively small loan for Bricks, it represents our core lending business, simple small secure loans to local people in local places that brings benefits to many.

Jonathan said: “Supporting each other is the key to our success and we’re hoping that Bricks is now firmly part of our journey.”
