DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

12

We joined TenetLime, exiting PTFS as an AR due to their change of management and direction. We looked at a number of Networks and nearly joined Sesame, but ended up with a very good result! Why? 1. Not on a superficial level, but in a genuine way, the team at TenetLime took an interest in our business and wanted to help us move forward. 2. Communication is really good – whether we have had cause to talk to sales, training, compliance, authorisations, the people in finance that guided us through the nightmare known as novation or anybody else in the organisation – they are friendly and helpful. 3. Compliance procedures and documentation are different; but it all falls into place and the processes work. In summary, TenetLime wants to support their brokers and from our perspective this is really good! Michael Minter, Mortgage Steps Limited

As one of the UK’s largest mortgage and protection networks, you could stand a lot to gain and achieve additional value and income if you switch to TenetLime. Don’t just take our word for it though; here’s what some of our existing members have said about their experience of Tenet. Sea Sense joined TenetLime having looked at several different networks. We were reassured with the financial strength of the Tenet Group, which offers us the peace of mind that Tenet won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. We find TenetLime to be extremely helpful in all areas, whether it is a compliance issue or help and advice with marketing. They take a real interest in our business and we are looking forward to a period of strong growth with a network that is there to support us in achieving this goal. Rick Fuller, Sea Sense Mortgages Ltd

We have nothing but praise for the entire team at TenetLime, from our initial contact with our Recruitment Manager through to the ongoing business development support we receive. With their guidance and support our transition from Sesame network was both smooth and efficient. All our contacts with TenetLime have been dealt with in a friendly and effective manner and we feel that we are now a member of a network which has its member firms’ best interests at heart. Helen Marks - Residence Mortgages & Financial Services Ltd

Following our previous network ceasing trading and sold to Sesame unexpectedly, we found the transition to TenetLime very painless and was kept up to date with the progress of the switch. They are very easy and helpful to deal with and I can’t see myself ever moving again as the support I have had so far is second to none and they let me get on and earn my money, which is key. The other good thing is that TenetLime are constantly developing new systems and arrangements with companies to help us earn more and offer more in terms of products. Overall, I would recommend TenetLime to any mortgage, protection or financial adviser without hesitation. Mathew Kind - Kind Financial Services
