Client Testimonials

  • An outstanding service that went the extra mile to get our quite complicated and time sensitive mortgage plus other services. Any problems always came with solutions & recommendations. I cannot praise you enough!

    Client Matthew & Sarah – Isle of Wight
  • Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Went far beyond the service I expected and nothing was too much trouble. Ie: we changed houses, mortgages an caused issues re deposit being in Euros.

    Client Simon & Nuria – Isle of Wight
  • "Very prompt service throughout, very professional."

    Client Mr & Mrs Martin – Isle of Wight
  • Jon & the team went over and above to help us get our mortgage – so responsive & knowledgeable

    Client Mr Darling – Isle of Wight
  • Jon was able to offer us products that were unavailable on the High Street, and was very helpful throughout the mortgage application. He explained to us effectively and clearly what was happening, and we can both say we’ve learnt a lot about mortgages from him. His communication skills are second to none, as he was able to communicate quickly and efficiently with us and the lender, which helped us get our mortgage offer.  We would definitely recommend Jon to anyone and hope to work with him in the future.

    Client Sam & Yasmin – Isle of Wight
  • As first-time buyers, Jon helped us and explained everything really well. We didn’t feel rushed and felt able to ask him all the questions we had. Compared to the experience we had with another mortgage advisor Jon was 11/10!. Have been, and will continue to recommend.

    Client Garrick & Levi – Isle of Wight
