Here is a little more about Duncan…
Duncan joined the team in April 2018, following a decade of experience in the mortgage sector, having previously worked as a mortgage consultant for companies including AWD Home Finance, Countrywide and most recently Barclays Premier team. These roles have garnered Duncan an insight and knowledge in all areas of the mortgage world, estate agencies and high net worth banking, not surpassed by many. Duncan has a commercial, business minded approach to all his endeavours for the business.
Duncan is friendly, knowledgeable, straight talking when needed, but easy to chat to. His expertise means that he is well versed in dealing with all complex requirements for investors and he will not only find you the best deal, but the best solution for your entire portfolio thinking creatively about how to structure your borrowings for the best outcome for you.
Revered by his clients, Duncan has been integral to the growth of the business and paired with his dedicated case manager Nick, clients can be confident that they are getting world-class service.
At weekends, Duncan occasionally hits the green for a round of golf and is said to play a mighty game (despite his technically ‘below par’ swing!). He also enjoys the odd tipple, with gin and whiskey being his drinks of choice.

We’re biased…so here’s what our clients’ say about Duncan…
Note sure I can say more than I have in the title. They were prompt, kept me updated, didn’t bother me unnecessarily, and most importantly didn’t waste my time. Got me a great deal, answer various queries I had thoughtfully, and when they didn’t know an answer they didn’t make one up but went back and responded once they had found out. I will use them again. I dealt with Duncan, Nick and Abby and they were very helpful.
Great Service, Short Response Times, Easy-To-Use, Great Price
This will be my third mortgage with The Buy To Let Broker and I cannot fault them. Matt & Becky have worked miracles to find the best deals, even after two lenders fell through. I didn’t blink when I heard that their fees were slightly higher this year as the amount of work they put in before the invoice arrives is nothing short of remarkable. Great company & people, only ever a phone call away; highly recommend.
The team I dealt with have been amazing – they have worked tirelessly to ensure I’ve got a mortgage offer which I am happy with. From the outset when I searched for Buy to let brokers and came across the company, Duncan was kind enough to give me a call on the Monday morning and discuss my case in detail and most importantly understand my situation and clearly explain what was the best for me. Duncan was always available for any questions I’d have either via email or telephone. Duncan, clearly explained all the steps to me throughout the process and explained to me there will be other important members of the team who would help us get to the stage where we are today. They are Nick (the case manager & Abby the assistant) who both once again introduced themselves to me and made themselves available in case I had any questions either via email or telephone. No question that I had was too silly for them and for that I am eternally grateful. Nick was very clear from the outset what documents I had to get ready and Abby was making sure all the documents were correct and in the correct format as well as chasing the lender multiple times looking to accelerate the process as per my request due to the tight deadlines to complete the purchase of the property.
I have to say, I’ve dealt with other brokers and case managers however no one comes close to this team of Duncan, Nick & Abby. I am eternally grateful for their hard work, support and working so quick due to the deadlines I had to get a mortgage offer. Not once did the team say no this isn’t possible or ever not work as fast as they practically could and for that I can not pay the guys highest respect. I sincerely hope Duncan, Nick & Abby are rewarded by the firm for their amazing hard work. I can’t wait to work with the dream team once again in the future.
Duncan, Nick & Abby are the dream team!!
Fantastic Service. I’ve used the BTLB a few times now and they really are head and shoulders above the competition. Duncan and Nick provide a truly exceptional service, replying to my messages pretty much straight away, and always managed to produce a result (regardless of the challenges). I would give them 10 stars if I could. Thanks so much!
The service from the buy to let broker was excellent and a big thank you to the team for sorting our mortgage so quickly. I have used them a number of times for both personal and buy to let mortgages.
Speedy, professional service
Nick and Duncan at the B2L broker were fantastic. Lots of vendors don’t understand the limited company buy to let lending process but Nick & Ducan both took the time to explain this not only to me but also to the vendors. They go above and beyond, I’ve used them three times and will continue to do so.
Great personal service
I have no hesitation in recommending The Buy to Let Broker’s services. Whilst arranging our mortgage, they took the time to understand our needs, offered expert advice and provided an excellent service. Taking the stress out of the process with great communication every step of the way. We look forward to using their services again in the future.
Outstanding Service… Great Team!
Great service, would certainly recommend them. High performance team with outstanding customer service, with outstanding capacity to resolve problems and to be proactive. The best mortgage advisory firm I have worked with.
Duncan and Nick at The Buy-To-Let Broker have been absolutely fab!. I did 3 mortgages (one residential, one BTL on personal name and a BTL using Ltd Company) with them almost simultaneously. Duncan understood my requirements well and able to find 3 different lenders to suit my individual circumstances with his professional, constructive, friendly and in a timely manner advises, help and support, updating me all the time how the process goes. Nick has dealt with the lender side, prepared and submitted my application diligently, right first time. Both Duncan and Nick complement each other and a good team to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team and the services they offer. It has taken all of the stress out of choosing the best residential and BTL mortgages and they are always available for help and advice. Brilliant! I cannot recommend this company highly enough.
