A great financial adviser. Paul has helped us to re-mortgage and enable us to release capital from our residential property. It wasn't straight forward as it also involved foreign income. Paul had the knowledge and the patience to deal with our complicated situation and was always available to inform us of our progress. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to any of our friends and family and I am sure that in the near future we will use his expertise again. Thank you.

Paul helped my wife and I remortgage our house. He made everything as easy as possible and was always available when we had a query at a very reasonable price too! We had issues with the lender due to my wife being on maternity leave but despite them being very difficult, Paul made it very easy for us and dealt with it all. Speaking from experience of dealing with other financial advisors I can say Paul is top drawer and we'll definitely be giving him a call again next time round.

Paul was extremely efficient, he would always get back to me the same day with paperwork and with answers to my queries. He kept on top with chasing the mortgage company as I have a short time frame for completion.

Following an unfortunate change in my personal circumstances I urgently needed to remortgage. Paul was highly recommended to me by a mutual friend and I was delighted with the service I received from start to finish. I found him to be professional, patient and clear, ensuring I fully understood every step. After making the urgency of the situation clear to Paul during our initial consultation I can't say how impressed I was with his dedication to help me within the challenging time frame I'd set. The biggest compliment I could pay would be that I would definitely use his services again in future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Thankyou!
Ben, St Austell
Fantastic advice given and top notch knowledge of the whole mortgage market. So much more affordable than I expected, all I need to do is find a house now! Would highly recommend!
