Countrywide announces acquisition of Mortgage Bureau

Countrywide PLC  the UK’s largest property services and estate agency group announced on their website yesterday that it has aquired Mortgage Bureau, by doing so it has further enhanced its focus on the residential development mortgage market.

With a team of 50 professional consultants and with access to a broad spectrum of the UK’s mortgage market, Mortgage Bureau works alongside national housebuilders as well as a wide range of respected estate agents.

Mark Clouston, Director of Mortgage Bureau said: ‘’Mortgage Bureau has been growing strongly over the past few years and in order to take our business to the next level we needed the support of a larger organisation with wider geographical spread, extended resource and deep industry knowledge. Countrywide was the obvious choice as it shares our passion for exceptional client service and putting the customer at the centre of all it does. The whole team are really excited about embarking on the next stage of the company’s development.”

Peter Curran, Managing Director of Countrywide Financial Services, said: “Countrywide has a clear vision of ‘bringing people and property together’, so a focus on providing an exceptional customer experience is central to our values. Mortgage Bureau is not only a great strategic and cultural fit in this sense, but also has established relationships with some of the biggest names in housebuilding and the wider property market. The impressive growth that the company has achieved over the past four years is a clear illustration of the quality of the business and the exceptional customer service that its people provide, and we very much look forward to welcoming them into our group.”
