An independent mortgage broker in East Anglia is celebrating winning one of the most prestigious national awards in the mortgage industry.
Boon Brokers, which is based in Bungay, has been awarded the title of the Best Small Broker of the Year (Southern regions) at The Mortgage Awards 2021. This award recognises the best broker firm with less than 10 mortgage advisers that have displayed examples of excellence in the mortgage space.
Boon Brokers beat off stiff competition from hundreds of entrants and 10 other shortlisted brokers, located across the whole of the South of England including London.
The award ceremony, which is run by MoneyAge, was hosted on Grosvenor Square at the London Marriott Hotel in London and was judged by a panel of experts from across the industry.
Boon Brokers is an independent mortgage, insurance and equity release brokerage, founded by father and son team Michael and Gerard Boon. Its aim is to offer a fee-free service whilst simultaneously providing the highest quality of advice in the UK market. With a team of eight staff, the company has over 4,500 clients and over £800 million of loans have been arranged since its establishment.
Despite the backdrop of the global pandemic, the company has had an exceptional year. Not only has the business grown but it also launched exciting new technology to help deliver an even better level of service. The investment, along with the team’s hard work, has paid off with a Trust Pilot review rating of 5.0 out of 5.0 and 99% of reviewers rating them as excellent.
Gerard Boon commented: “We’re thrilled to have won this award, which is a very prestigious one in the industry. Obviously the last 18 months has had its challenges for everyone, and in the first lockdown our work slowed right down as the property market ground to a halt.
“But we used that time to develop technological solutions we knew would be beneficial to our clients and for our own working practices and developing interesting and useful educational content for the website. Our Guide to Mortgage Broker Fees gets hundreds of reads every week. Once the property market got back on track we were then in a great place to work efficiently and find clients the best possible deals. It’s been hard work but we’ve enjoyed getting stuck in – and winning this award and getting positive feedback from our customers and peers makes it all worthwhile.”
A spokesperson for MoneyAge said: “Boon Brokers welcomes change to match the evolving needs of clients, focusing on making the mortgage process simple for the client to understand, whilst being as efficient as technology will allow. Congratulations to all the Boon Brokers team for an outstanding year.”
