He assisted, guided, and went to great lengths to ensure the process was as stress free as possible. We felt well supported and we surely hope to make this new venture a big success."

Christie Finance utilised their in-depth understanding of the care funding market to successfully secure a competitive deal. Stuart Pawelczyk, Director at Christie Finance who worked with Mr & Mrs Sandhar throughout the process said, "I am very pleased to have assisted Mr & Mrs Sandhar in successfully raising the finance required to purchase their first care home. Glenthorne House is the perfect home to acquire, a great opportunity to continue the legacy of their predecessors. I have no doubt the home will continue to flourish in the future under their ownership."
