“Having worked closely with our loyal broker network in the North for several years, we have listened to what they want from a lender,” said Chris Timms, head of sales for the North at Octopus Real Estate (pictured above).
“We have responded by opening an office in Manchester to fully support them.
“This has been something we have wanted to do for several years and it’s exciting that our doors are now officially open.
“Both the commercial and residential property markets are moving quickly in the North, and opportunities continue to arise making investment an attractive choice.”
