The Bottom Line February 2017


Ramsbottom is a small but fiercely proud market town. Businesses and customers show loyalty through ‘buying local’. This does not just occur in the Butchers or Bakers (are there any Candlestick Makers?), it also manifests itself in the ‘professional’ sector. To this end Northern Star have established great relationships with Solicitors, Accountants, Insurance Brokers, etc. not only for mutual benefit through referrals and recommendations, but also to provide the end customer with joined up, coordinated services.

As Sarah Buckley, Practice Manager at Northern Star, puts it, “Trusting in another business to deliver the same high levels of service as we do is critical to these relationships. We recommend on the basis that our customers are going to be delighted with the introduction – not just satisfied!”

Bea Couzens, Executive Assistant at Barber & Co. Solicitors, agreed, “We are relatively new to Ramsbottom, but we can already see the advantages of good business relations. Our colleagues at Northern Star, Cowgill Holloway, Munro Greenhalgh, Weale and Hitchen have all made it easy for us to collaborate and join forces to provide end to end advice and great customer service. We all know our roles and how we can work together and really enjoy being part of Ramsbottom’s professional circle.”

“I have recently been in to see Leigh after my personal circumstances have changed. I presumed that our conversation would centre around one specific financial situation but, in fact, due to Leigh remembering a chat we had over two years ago, was entirely different and ultimately life-changing. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Leigh for not only understanding my personal financial needs, but also for being proactive enough to advise me not on what I was asking for but on what was most beneficial to me.”
