Ex-R&SA personal lines director Steve Broughton and his other half Jill Pengelly, formerly Aon's marketing director of personal lines, have gone into business together.

For those who enjoy a sunshine lifestyle, the two household experts have started a web-based free service to help people find their dream home in Spain.

Broughton said: "We can save people a lot of time, effort and money and make the whole process simple and safe. We will happily pay £500 for any introduction that leads to someone buying a property through us."
