“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 decade’s 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 would absolutely recommend The Buy to Let Broker’s services. I have completed several remortgages and BTL deals with them and the service is always second to none. Angela’s knowledge of the BTL lending market and understanding of the complexity around financing a BTL portfolio, means she is adept at navigating the increasingly complex criteria from lenders to get the very best deal available, each and every time. This, coupled with Fran’s ruthless efficiency in ensuring the admin behind each deal is managed through in the shortest possible time, means the whole process is fast and completely hassle free (it comes as no surprise Fran won an award for this at the British Specialist Lending Awards this year!). And on top of that, they’re lovely people! Well done and thank you both again!
Excellent service, lovely people!
A very thorough and professional service from Gary and Amy throughout a challenging financial period. Our mortgage was a complex one and the team worked tirelessly to get us into our ‘forever home’. A huge thank you.
Very pleased with the service provided by both Rachael and Becky. Rapid efficient easy communication through the whole process and I was kept informed without needing to chase.
After initially discussing our 2 buy to let mortgage options I was delighted to discover Adam was able to source a 5yr fixed rate mortgage plus allowing us to raise a further £8k for improvements. More importantly, allowing us to reduce our overall payments by £175pm!! which we were delighted with. I thought the service levels given by Adam and Katie the Case manager were fantastic and I would not hesitate in recommending The Buy to Let Broker. Thank you.
Really impressed with the professional advice given by Adam and Katie.
Team at The Buy to Let Broker prep my case upfront meticulously which saves us a lot of back and forth efforts on a latter time and helped a lot to expedite the application process. As a result it actually saved us time and money.
Excellent service well worth it
The service was highly professional – the broker took the time to understood my needs and delivered a personal, tailored solution that I am extremely pleased with. Throughout the processes I always received timely updates on the status of my mortgage application and the team went the extra mile to ensure I secured the product I wanted. An excellent broker that I would recommend to anyone and will be using again in the future.
Having used The Buy to Let Broker a number of times in the past, I didn’t hesitate to give them a call when I needed another B2L mortgage. My case was particularly complicated due to my personal requirements and the current situation with the pandemic. Tom Headey was exceptional throughout the process, very knowledgeable, always available and an excellent communicator. He actually listened to what I needed and simplified a decision making process that is often unnecessarily complicated by many.
Becky Cringle was responsible for getting my offer over the line and she managed to pull it off in a relarively quick time considering the circumstances. Her updates were prompt and her effort takes so much pressure off you as a client. Brilliant communicator and excellent customer service. Couldn’t be happier with the service.
Thank you again Tom and Becky for all your help. Look forward to dealing with you again in the near future.
Excellent Service from the team
This is the second time I am using the Buy to Let Broker. Both times they have been incredibly efficient at securing me a fantastic mortgage deal.
Excellent broker, super efficient!
Amazing service, really helped us to find the right product for our BTL mortgage in the Ltd that we were setting up. Talked through in detail each of the products that were available and which ones suited our needs. Ensured a smooth process from beginning to end, with excellent communication throughout.
