What our clients say
I have recently just completed my purchase of my first home, every stage was made so easy with the help from Peter and Ben, great service!
Dean S, Cardiff
Peter has been helping me for years with my mortgage needs, and has also arranged brilliant life and critical illness insurances to protect me and my family. Straightforward guy, very trustworthy, couldn't recommend more highly.
Neil S, Swindon
Great professional service! Having been in the property game a long time rare to see such a committed team
Dean W, Swansea
Completed today on our remortgage which was expertly arranged through Four Square Financial, or rather by Pete and James to be more accurate. Fantastic personalised customer service. Excellent communications throughout. A thoroughly professional job. I would not hesitate to recommend these guys to anyone needing help and advice on mortgage and property related matters. Not all mortgage companies are the same; thankfully Four Square go 'above and beyond'! Thanks again chaps; it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Jon T, Bristol
Never met nicer people. Helped us with everything and made everything so understandable would highly recommend this company. They done a brilliant job very pleased.
Adrian C, Thornbury
Pete was really helpful when it came to buying my first home. He explained the different types of mortgages I could have and what product would be best for me, and simplified the whole process. The team overall are a pleasure to work with and are quick on getting back to you regarding any query. I highly recommend them.
Victor M, Bristol
Really happy with the service that Peter and James offered us. Very helpful and always on the end of the phone to help this process along. Found the right product for our needs too.
Sue M, Trowbridge
Pete was able to help me out at very short notice over the Christmas period with a remortgage. Pete came up trumps and his customer service was impeccable. Thanks for all your hard work.
Rob T, Nailsea
Fantastic service - mortgage, life insurance and home insurance sorted in minimal time. Having never undertaken these commitments on my own- Pete and James were informative and reassuring. The whole process was smooth and stress free. Thanks Pete and James.
Linda H, Bristol
Pete has been a total superstar! He’s approachable, professional, polite and honest with no question or query unanswered! Not only has he helped us with our mortgage application and related process, he has also assisted us with insurances and similar bits and bobs. He’s really made our moving process as smooth as it could ever be. Definitely recommend to anyone and everyone!
Molly D, Bristol
Faultless from start to finish. Could not have completed the moving process without Pete, he was our night in shining armour on many occasions and helped us every step of the way. Also had answers to our questions and offered great advice. Definitely, defiantly worth doing and highly recommended
Charlotte W, Bristol
Foursquare Financial Ltd went above and beyond to help with our recent move. A brilliant service, that I would recommend to anyone. James and Peter provided a depth of knowledge and incredible support at every stage of the process. A pleasure to do business with. Thank you both.
Jonathan C, Trowbridge
Excellent service and advice, after trying the high street banks and my local brokers I was still £5000 off of my goal until Foursquare Financial started looking for me, and then when the first choice mortgage provider changed their minds about my disabled benefits they had a second choice ready and waiting to go with the full amount I needed. not only did they find me the mortgage and work with the companies on my awkward income situation, but they also guided me through the buying process and helped me find a good inexpensive honest conveyancer that actually stuck to the original quote. Thanks again James for all of your help, I would recommend you to anyone.
Andrew M, Trowbridge, Wilts
James and Peter took the time to understand my financial requirements and came up with a solution which has allowed me to increase my current property portfolio. As a landlord, I cannot recommend James, Peter and all the team at Foursquare Financial highly enough.
Andrew G, Bristol
