It reiterates commitment to 'educational approach' for brokers
VAS Valuation Group has become the latest member of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB), the largest independent trade body for commercial finance brokers in the UK.
Covering both VAS Panel and VAS Assurance divisions, which have jointly completed over £8 billion worth of valuation reporting in the last 12 months, the company said it is committed to giving brokers a complete, transparent overview of the processes so valuations are not a stumbling block to completing more deals.
As it joined NACFB, VAS Valuation Group vowed to continue its “educational approach to ensure brokers better understand and control the valuations process.”
“We already work with many member brokers on behalf of our lender clients and work hard to provide the best possible education, valuation and service, which means more deals progress through to completion,” Stephen Todd (pictured), chief commercial officer and co-founder of the VAS Valuation Group, said.
“We have invested heavily in our technology, but it is our team that truly makes the difference. With over 40 staff, including internal chartered surveyors, we are the largest panel and assurance valuations business in the UK, and with everybody dedicated to the customer, our outcomes are second-to-none.”
NACFB, which was launched in 1992, is comprised of over 2,000 commercial finance brokers covering the whole of the UK.
“We are proud to welcome the VAS team to our growing intermediary-led lending community,” Norman Chambers, NACFB managing director, said. “I am confident in the value they can add to many transactions between our membership cohort, and look forward to seeing our relationship strengthen.”
