What our clients say
“John did a thorough review or our current circumstances and investment position and came back with a comprehensive review that made sense for us. He also reviewed our mortgage as part of the process and found us a much better deal than our current one. Our annual charges are now significantly lower and our pension is easier to review and manage. We have also seen good growth in the last year so his advice was sound.”
Paul Rubens, Bedfordshire
“John found me some excellent mortgages and explained all the options clearly in layman’s language so I could make an informed choice on the best product for me. He went out of his way to fill in all the forms and visit me at home (as my partner was ill) and made the whole process as stress free as possible. John also opened a new pension scheme for me and found an excellent alternative to move existing, fragmented, pension pots under one scheme. All costs were explained and the admin and hassle was reduced to an absolute minimum. He met me at a time suitable to me and there is very little John could of done to improve his service.”
Craig Langley, Buckinghamshire
“I'm not sure John could have done anything better as I found him very patient and understanding - repeating things when asked so as to afford an understanding. Summarising and checking my understanding was important to me.”
Maureen Spencer, Hertfordshire
"John has been exceptional and always helpful."
Maureen Spencer, Hitchen, Hertfordshire
"John has advised us on mortgages, pensions and investments. John has always acted with integrity, he is honest, trustworthy and 100% reliable. We have no hesitation in recommending John, in fact we have recommended him to our family and friends."
Lynn at A Fitter Life Ltd, Milton Keynes
"Allie and I appreciate your input and dedication and perseverance in getting us a mortgage and thank you for your efforts on our behalf."
Shirley Rozee, Boston, Lincolnshire
