LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2013) - At the What Mortgage Awards ceremony held at the Minster Exchange, London, on August 14th, the Bower Retirement Service's team of equity release advice specialists received the latest award to be won by BRS, voted by readers of What Mortgage Magazine the best equity release broker in 2013. The annual What Mortgage Awards are especially valued in the industry as they represent direct feedback from consumers.
In 2013 What Mortgage Awards achieved the landmark of 20 years of rewarding and celebrating the very best businesses in the UK's mortgage market and this year saw one of the highest numbers of votes cast to date, with over 19,500 votes received for the best in the UK consumer mortgage, insurance and loan markets.
Geoff Charles, Managing Director of Bower, commented: "Bower Retirement Services are thrilled and flattered to have been voted Best Equity Release Broker 2013 at this year's annual What Mortgage Awards. This is an important award voted for by consumers directly." He expressed his thanks both to everyone who voted for Bower, and to his team, for their work in ensuring that BRS delivers the highest level of customer service. "This award is a testament to their efforts."
The quality of Bower's customer service was underlined by Bower's Business Development Director, Nigel Scott, who also voiced his delight at winning the award. "Bower strives to provide the highest levels of customer service," he said, "We offer impartial advice to consumers considering equity release, and winning this award is very much appreciated by every member of the Bower team."
The What Mortgage award is just the latest in the accolades to be awarded by consumers and the industry to Bower Retirement Services, who also recently won three prestigious awards at the annual industry awards ceremony hosted by The Equity Release Council (previously Safe Home Income Plans, "SHIP").
Through their highly trained team of specialist advisers Bower Retirement Services offers impartial financial advice on equity release plans, and provide access to all the Equity Release Council recommended plans, incorporating the SHIP guarantees. BRS advisers provide free initial consultations, visiting customers in their own homes, and helping them decide whether or not releasing equity is the best option for them. Given the range of schemes on offer, and the critical importance of the decision to the individual's financial circumstances, the choice can be a daunting one for the consumer. Bower's customers obviously appreciate not only the face-to-face consultations that they can benefit from, but also the on-line guidance that is on offer, including a free equity release calculator.
