First Complete increases mortgage volumes by 66%

First Complete has increased its mortgage completions by 66 per cent and life sales by 69 per cent in August, compared to the same month last year.

Brokers from the firm completed almost 3,500 protection cases and almost the same number of mortgage cases with a value of more than half a billion pounds worth of lending in a month that traditionally sees volumes dipping.

First Complete reported it had a record month, despite the fact that the previous August was already up 35 per cent on the year before.

Bosses said this month was not a one off either and follows a number of record months for the network, which has continued an upward trend almost every month over the last two years.

Toni Smith, sales operations director for First Complete, said: “The results achieved this August are outstanding and full credit goes to all of our ARs who continue to outperform the rest of the market month after month.

“While the CML figures demonstrate that we are in a growing mortgage market, First Complete brokers have taken this to a whole new level, demonstrating the calibre of the firms that we have in our network and what can be achieved with a combination of the right support in the right culture.”
