Enness Private Clients teams up with Benham & Reeves

Enness Private Clients has signed an introducer referral agreement with independent London estate agency, Benham & Reeves, to handle its clients’ mortgage enquiries.

The partnership will see Benham & Reeves introduce all mortgage and finance enquiries it receives from customers to Enness, the Central London-based advisory practice.

Benham & Reeves has offices in four North West London real estate areas – Hampstead, Highgate, Dartmouth Park and West Hampstead – which ties in with Enness Private Clients’high net-worth demographic.

James Morton, director of Benham & Reeves, says: “This strategic partnership allows us to cater for all of our customers’needs, from finding their dream home to sourcing the finance to help them realise this aspiration.

“Despite what is often considered a fairly flat market, we continue to achieve strong volumes and expect that to remain constant throughout 2012.”
