Quantum to join Home of Choice

Quantum Mortgage Brokers is to resign its directly authorised status by applying to join the Home of Choice network.

The decision to apply to become an appointed representative came after months of deliberation and at a time when the boutique brokerage is seeing a growth in business.

Jonathan Burridge, managing director of Quantum, says: “We are entering a period of growth for our business and we looked at options that would enable us to enhance our client offering and also provide us with access to new markets.

“Home of Choice’s refreshing attitude toward its network members, its depth of offering and the strength and enthusiasm of its management team makes it a natural fit.

“In addition to the improved products we will be able to offer our clients through Home of Choice, we have been able to devise a remuneration package that will reward the exceptional performers we are hoping will join our company in the future.”

Gerry O’Brian, sales director of Home of Choice, says: “We are delighted that leading mortgage businesses such as Quantum are applying to become appointed representatives of Home of Choice because of the strength of our proposition.”
