Stoke firm joins mortgageforce

Mortgageforce has added Stoke-based brokerage Brian Alcock & Associates to its growing list of franchisees.

The brokerage completed around £100m worth of business in 2007.

Mortgageforce managing di-rector Kevin Duffy says his firm wants to increase its number of franchisees. He adds that brokers like mortgageforce’s lender referral programmes, such as its efforts to relocate Bradford & Bingley’s £14bn mortgage book.

Duffy says: “This brokerage is experienced and will help us dev-elop our presence in Staffordshire.”

Rob Alcock, senior mortgage consultant at Brian Alcock & Associates, adds: “We were looking for security and mortgageforce can provide that.”
