The continued upturn in the residential and buy-to-let property market has prompted a Derby-based mortgage consultancy to forge ahead with expansion plans and team up with Marketing Derby Bondholder Burnthebook to provide the digital platform to achieve this goal.
Derbyshire Mortgage Services in Allestree is an independent family-owned company headed by long-established mortgage consultant Michelle Woolley.
Burnthebook has designed the new website for the company which focuses on clear information for clients including purpose-built mortgage and stamp duty calculators to help work out finances.
Mrs Woolley explained: “Finding the right mortgage and insurance products can be very stressful for clients – not least having to take time of work to visit high street lenders during office hours.
“As an independent, local business, we offer a personal service which, as well as being free to the client, means that we are available at times to suit them.
“This approach has resulted in incredible growth across the business which has led us to start recruiting for more staff.
“Alongside this, we realised we needed a website that properly reflected the quality of our offer as well as the personal service that supports our clients through the mortgage and insurance process.
“We were keen to work with Burnthebook who have a great reputation and really understood our business.
Burnthebook Director Jackie Clarke continued: “We took Derbyshire Mortgage Services through our usual rigorous strategy and analysis process to fully understand the operational side of their business and establish their growth ambitions.
“Our primary aim was to ensure the website delivered the best possible user experience, thereby converting enquires into sales and achieve the business growth that our client wanted.
“We are now working with Derbyshire Mortgage Services to deliver a digital campaign to drive enquiries to the website, as well as a continued program of SEO support.
