How it works

We know that as a mortgage broker or estate agent, the dream is to have more control over the transaction process and to get to completion quickly… but it’s challenging when there are so many variables and obstacles along the way.

So, here’s a little secret – order a survey upfront via Optimus and reduce the risk of a transaction falling through. Not only that, but you can earn an additional £135 per transaction. Everyone wins!

How we do it
