What our clients say
We couldn’t recommend Flex Financial enough. Throughout our whole process beginning to end Steve gave us an amazing service. Steve gave us all the advise we needed to know from when we had just started saving right through to getting our mortgage accepted! Steve got our mortgage application submitted so quickly and was always there to answer any questions we had. We couldn’t thank Steve enough for how easy he made the process of buying our first home!
Jade F, Essex
Stephen was our first mortgage advisor when we bought the house. We were first buyers that time so everything was new for us and it was almost nerve recking to do everything by ourselves considering our hectic work schedule. From day one we met, Stephen was very professional, thorough with his advice and helped us to secure a nice deal which were merely possible doing it ourselves. Now, without any hesitation we contacted Stephen as our current deal were about to expire. Despite of the pandemic situation, Stephen helped us to secure a much better deal and extremely faster than we could imagine. There are no words to express gratitude to Stephen and anyone in the situation that we were two years ago should contact him for stress free life.
Jotsan, South Ockendon
What can I say, Steve is very professional and went above and beyond what I thought a mortgage adviser would do, supporting me from start to finish with getting my mortgage. He Always explained everything simply for me to understand. He listened to my needs, and got the best mortgage that suited my situation perfectly, always ready to answered any queries I had, and ready to reassure when I was nervous. He made what would have been a daunting experience simple, giving me complete confidence with him. I’d definitely recommend this company highly!
Suzanne Kay, Rochford
Following our mortgage, Steve at Flex Financial arranged our protection cover. He gave up his Friday night to arrange this as it was the only time I was available. He understood my priorities, fully explained all my options, costings (including working to my budget) in a friendly and professional manner. Would 100% recommend to all my family and friends.
Hannah Louise, Hockley
With my own business, I was concerned what options I’d have available for re-mortgaging. I’d heard horror stories about self-employed mortgages, but Steve was able to secure me 7 viable providers that would probably accept me. Then bingo, we were accepted with our 1st application and went through in about a month
Andrew M, Hockley
We have used Flex Financial as our mortgage advisor for both getting our first mortgage and our remortgage and have been very happy with the service on both occasions. Steve always ensures that we are getting the best deal possible and gives lots of honest and helpful information during the process. Steve really goes out of his way to ensure it is an easy process and that we fully understand. We never feel silly for asking lots of questions! I would definitely recommend Flex Financial and wouldn’t go anywhere else for this service!
Alex, Southend
Steve went above and beyond through every single step of the mortgage process. He was always very quick to respond and nothing was too much to ask. Being first time buyers it was a daunting process but we couldn't have asked for anything more than the service we received to ensure we understood the whole way through.
Ms K and Mr A, Hornchurch
