Mark has now arranged 3 mortgages for us – but with this latest one we really gave him something challenging!
I really believe we would have had a lot of difficulty finding a mortgage without Mark.
His attention and ability to handle my numerous questions was truly superb. As was his encyclopaedic knowledge of the mortgage market and lending criteria. Many thanks Mark!
I purchased my first house in 2014. Mark was my mortgage advisor and he was wonderful.
I have just bought my second house and decided to purchase a buy to let property half was through the sell process. There were many hiccups along the way (I won’t bore you with details) but Mark has been totally amazing.
I would strongly recommend him & his team. 10 out of 10 from me.
Mark’s communication and advice was clear and straightforward at every stage, and his patience appeared to have no limit.
Not to mention that he managed to secure us a mortgage that was far better than anything we could find elsewhere after exhausting countless other avenues.
I have never felt so confident in a financial service and doubt I ever will again.
