Two leading Bangor firms join forces

Northern Ireland’s Estate Agency of The Year Pinkerton Murray and multi award winning mortgage advisors One Stop Mortgage Shop have collaborated in an effort to make moving home as hassle free as possible.

Pinkerton Murray has seen continued success since opening their doors four short years ago, and within this time have been awarded Best Estate Agent in Northern Ireland, thrice awarded Best Letting Agent in Northern Ireland, all awarded at the UK Estate Agent and Letting Agent Awards, and more prominently named as Northern Irelands Estate Agency of the Year by the Sunday Times. Pinkerton Murray is a company with unprecedented commitment to excellent customer service at its core, and it is with this concept that Pinkerton Murray is delighted to announce it has extended its services by partnering with another dedicated local company One Stop Mortgage Shop.

One Stop Mortgage Shop, who are into their fourteenth year of business, are no stranger to awards themselves having been awarded ‘Northern Ireland’s Top Mortgage Network Firm’ in 2008, 2009 and 2010 with their advisors scooping the cherished accolade of ‘Northern Irelands Top Mortgage Advisor’ each year since. These awards have been awarded to One Stop Mortgage Shop by the UK’s largest mortgage regulator Sesame and are only awarded to the industry’s elite.

This collaboration of services offers Pinkerton Murray’s clients the opportunity to have their financial needs met by Northern Ireland’s leading independent mortgage advisors as well as knowing their property needs are being looked after by a team of experienced professionals. Stephen Murray, Director at Pinkerton Murray enthused “What better way to ensure that people can see that your home is for sale by advertising it in a shopping centre which has over 100,000 visitors each week. With a unit beside unarguably the most frequented shop in Bloomfield, Marks and Spencer, and with our head office on Bangor’s High Street means that no other Estate Agent is better positioned to market your home than Pinkerton Murray”.

Victoria Pinkerton, Managing Director of Pinkerton Murray commented “Meeting the current needs of our clients in an efficient, effective way is paramount. Being able to provide a busy, eye-catching second location for our vendors to showcase their properties and offering excellent independent financial advice all under one roof means we can meet and exceed those needs”. John Todd, Director of One Stop Mortgage Shop continued “It is suggested that moving home is one of the most stressful things that you will ever do, yet on average people move home every three to five years. Joining forces with Northern Ireland’s leading Estate Agent was an excellent way for us to assist those looking to move home as both an Estate Agent and a Mortgage Advisor are integral parts of one being able to do so”.

Jonathan Robb, Director of One Stop Mortgage Shop said “When the opportunity of a joint venture presented itself, the Directors and I all instantly agreed that there was only one Estate Agent that we wanted to align ourselves with. We wanted an agent who is highly respected and puts the needs of their customers first, as do we, and for us Pinkerton Murray was the only option.

As Bloomfield Shopping Centre is open seven days a week why not pay One Stop Mortgage Shop and Pinkerton Murray a visit to see how they can help you move.
