A FAMILY business of brokers is celebrating beating some of the biggest names in lending to win awards at this year's Bridging and Commercial Awards.

The awards, held at the picturesque Hurlingham Club in Fulham, celebrates success and growth over the last 12 months in the bridging, commercial, development and alternative finance industries.

The winners were decided by two judging panels of experts who met in May to discuss the contenders.

Adapt Finance is a small family business of six people based in Radcliffe. The team is made up of ex-local estate agent and finance broker Mark McBriar, aged 52, his son Jordan, aged 26, Luis McBriar, 23, 51-year-old Stephen Burns, Danielle Beswick, aged 29 and Graham Ball, 54.

Following the recession, Mark establish the Adapt Finance brokerage in 2014 providing funding to the property profession throughout the UK. The company is located in Hollybank Street, Radcliffe.

Luis said the firm is delighted to have beaten tough competition to win in two categories, 'Best Bridging Broker' and 'Best Service Excellence'.

The service excellence category was only introduced last year and it is the second time that Adapt has won it.

"It is attended by all the biggest names in the bridging and short term lending world," he said.

"Another reason why our small family business from the north of England is proud to win.

"These awards are highly prized and competed for by nationwide large and small business alike.

"We are relatively new to the market only, with my father and brother, Jordan starting the business in April 2014 and to now be competing and coming out on top of huge businesses who have been trading for many years is highly rewarding and we feel extremely honoured."
