Director – Matt Hardman
“Having built The Buy to Let Broker from a one-man band to the respected brokerage that we are today, has been an incredible journey. The daily challenges can be fierce but I genuinely wouldn’t have it any other way. With such an incredible, heavily experienced, proactive team on hand to take care of our loyal clients, as a director here, I am truly spoilt.”

Here is a little more about Matt…
A connoisseur of customer service and our chief problem solver, Matt founded The Buy to Let Broker back in 2013 from his home – armed only with only a clunky laptop, a rudimentary website, a desk phone and the desire to help landlords get the best mortgage with honest straight-forward advice.
Having now clocked up over two decades of expertise in the financial sector, Matt was well versed in the tenacity and entrepreneurial mindset needed to build a brokerage based on integrity, passion and drive. It was with this pioneering vision in mind that Matt set out in his humble attic office to slay sub-standard mortgage advice and deliver a service that the team could be proud of. He joined forces with Matthew very soon afterwards and they have never looked back…
Fast forward seven years and two major office upgrades, The Buy to Let Broker is now a powerhouse of mortgage expertise with a 20-strong team of Buy to Let specialists. Highly regarded for its exemplary service and pragmatic approach, under Matt’s committed leadership, the company has gained a hoard of awards, a dedicated client base of happy landlords and the full respect of the sector.
Happiest when tackling client challenges head-on, Matt thrives on ever pushing the boundaries of what is possible for both the team and clients. Always striving to improve service, he has never been one to shy away from an obstacle and is hands-on in all areas of the business including strategy, marketing, recruitment and service.
Embracing the latest in technology, Matt’s forward-thinking nature has helped design and build the company’s in-house state-of-the-art CRM system that gives every client access to check the status of their application 24/7 for 100% peace of mind and all-round seamless client experience. It’s still a work in progress to this day to ever improve and evolve the human based tech approach, the business prides itself on relationships that transcend business, so the human element will always be there, no matter how good the tech gets.
Matt is keen to get back to raising charity funds having spent the last 6 months steering the business through the tough trading conditions of the pandemic, so he’s keen to get back to these noble ways to give a bit back and at the same time knowing the team will benefit from helping these causes.
Never one to sit still, when he’s not entertaining his two beautiful daughters or spending time outdoors with his Boxer, Bruno; mainly running on the beach, Matt winds down from a long day in the office with a spot of mountain biking, challenging Matthew to a (not always 100%) friendly game of pool or a well-deserved Guinness or two.

What Real People Say About Us…
I’m so pleased with Buy to Let Brokers – they consistently have provided excellent service – Angie, Chris and Fran are all extremely responsive, helpful and lovely to speak with. They made the whole process so easy, and were very clear in talking through what exactly was happening and next steps, as well as what is required from me. We have now used them a couple of times, and will definitely continue to go back because of the excellent service. Thank you all!
The best mortgage brokers around!
Amy Baxter and Louise Noble at the Buy to Let Broker have done a fantastic job helping me secure the best residential mortgage deal on our dream family house. Louise has helped me before on a Buy to Let a few years ago which has made things easier this time round as she already had a lot of my details.
Amy and Louise are very experienced, have always provided clear information and took the time to find me the best deal while keep me posted of progress. Louise even advised me when found me a better rate midway through the process as this became available.
They always returned calls and took the time to explain the process in detail and there was no pressure at all to use or commit to their product as is often the case with other brokers.
Purchasing a property can be very stressful if not done through the right mortgage broker, and I can’t recommend Amy and Louise enough at the buy to let broker. I will certainly be using them again in the future and have been recommending them to friends and family.
Thank you for allowing us to get our dream home!
Adam excels at finding suitable BTL mortgages with great rates at speed. Becky is very efficient and always keeps me updated on progress. This super duo really made the mortgage process a breeze and I highly recommend…so much so I came back!
Superb service. Adam and Becky super duo!
I have worked with Louise Noble and Amy Baxter for two buy to let projects and have found them both to be absolutely excellent. I cannot recommend highly enough, they are both efficient, knowledgeable and always available for regular communication. I also have found them to be able to help me get a better mortgage deal than elsewhere.
My “go to” buy to let broker
Matt and Becky are thorough professionals who are well versed with the intricacies of the buy to let finance market. They used their skills and experience in achieving results for me by getting me offers on 2 properties even though there were lot of obstacles such as minimum income requirement. What I admire about them is that they did not give up on my case until they achieved results. They were able to navigate my case which a lot of lenders were unwilling to take on through the market until I finally obtain 2 offers from a Lender.
Amazing and Knowledgeable Team
I have used Louise Noble (and latterly her with Amy Baxter) at the Buy To Let Broker since 2013/14 and have in that time executed a total of 9 mortgages and re-mortgages – residential and buy-to-let. Although I am financially astute and can navigate the mortgage process myself, I don’t see the point of bothering when Louise and Amy can do everything faster and more efficiently. The rates I get from Louise are always the same or better than the best rate I can find myself and when there’s a snag in the process, e.g. a lender taking too long Amy chases everything up really swiftly. They have a sense of urgency about them and are very empathetic with their clients – frankly, I’m surprised they still talk to me because I can be demanding but they are always enthusiastic and polite and I expect to be using their services for many years to come. I strongly recommend them.
Fast, efficient, friendly and best rates every time
Friendly and efficient. Guidance and help given in how to obtain documents given with great patience! Would recommend.
Friendly, knowledgable service
The Buy to Let Broker team are amazing. Patient, helpful, thorough and completely reliable – they made the whole process simple from start to finish. Louise, Amy and their team are very knowledgeable and could not have been more professional and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended for whatever mortgage, bridge or remortgage you may need. You will find it hard to beat the BTL Broker service.
Excellent from start to finish! Highly recommended.
We received great service from Angie and Fran. We are really pleased with the advises and mortgage options, and support we have received from Angie and Fran, throughout the process, both have been brilliant. Not only they worked hard to find the best deal available on the market, what I think makes them really stand out is the transparency and speed they have dealt with my cases. They have always immediately replied to all our queries, and throughout the process we had a clear idea about the process and the next steps. We couldn’t be happier with their services, in fact we have used them for two different properties. And we will be using them again. keep it up. Many thanks
