Jack also shares ideas for how lenders could make the most of a difficult situation.
Jack shares his advice for brokers around gaining knowledge and stresses the importance of using technology to stay up to date with what is happening in the world of brokers. As an advocate of adding value to help clients, Jack hosts a YouTube series rife with tips for clients which can be found here. You can also follow Jack on Instagram.
