Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates

Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
Lower interest rates in some cases
Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.
