We are delighted to introduce our new sister brand Aspire Property Finance. APF specialises in Auction Finance and sourcing and tailoring finance for complex property transactions across the UK.
The Team were interviewed by Anita Jaynes from The Business Exchange and you can read the article below:
Growing Corsham firm South West Business Finance (SWBF) is branching out with the creation of a new sister brand Aspire Property Finance to support businesses and individuals nationwide with their property finance needs.
Dan Smith, Co-Founder and Co-Director of SWBF explained, “As SWBF has grown, we have found that the clients we work with have been less geographically restricted to the South West. In order to continue this growth and development, it was important for there to be a brand which could be taken nationwide that also supported the increase in property transactions that we expect to see following the expansion of the team.”
The new Aspire Property Finance brand offers buy-to-let mortgages, property finance for single unit builds through to major mixed use sites, commercial mortgages, bridging finance and auction finance.
Heading up the Aspire Property Finance team is Rich Manning and Nicki Cholefko. Rich and Nicki know each other well having worked together previously. Rich has been a specialist mortgage broker for 10 years and has worked in financial services for over 20 years. Nicki has worked in financial services for six years and has been a specialist broker for the last four.
Rich Manning said, “I specialise in complex buy-to-let, bridging and commercial property finance, with a focus on auction purchases and completions within 20 working days.
“I hope that my skills and experience will add to the nearly 300 years (yes, I added it up!) that SWBF has served in finance and will help to take the business forward.”
Nicki Cholefko added, “I’m really looking forward to building the Aspire Property Finance brand across the UK and getting us known as the go-to firm for property investment finance.”
Since Rich and Nicki joined the team Aspire Property Finance has already built new relationships. The team are now working with Clive Emson Auctions who operate across the whole of the south of the country and plan to expand this with other national auctioneers over the coming months.
