What our clients say
We were struggling to find a mortgage.
Nic helped us find a fantastic mortgage. She made sure all options were understood and really helped us with what we needed and I couldn't be happier!
Nic was professional and helpful, but most of all she was really adaptable to our tricky situation. We've used her again since and I'd like to think she will be our financial advisor forever.
She was flexible and adaptable and had options for everything we had problems with!
Victoria B, Halifax
Nic managed to get me an amazing rate for my mortgage. I was surprised at how low it was.
She was patient, helpful, communicative and supportive. She arranged my new mortgage and gave me advice on life insurance, wills and critical illness cover.
Kate W, Manchester
A change in my personal circumstances meant myself and my new partner were largely starting from scratch with what can only be described as a very modern family setup and all the interesting quirks that come with that!
Nic helped us with a variety of services from applying for finance to considering our longer term positions. Nic was always there when we needed her and brought a very welcome human touch to her services, meshing with our existing lives and commitments.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nic to anyone regardless of their background as she is diligent, organised and adaptable.
Adam H, Halifax
Nic Jones has provided the most attentive and professional service you could wish for. Her commitment throughout the stressful process of moving house has been quite extraordinary. My wife and I can recommend Nic unreservedly and should anyone need a mortgage you will do no better than to let her source this for you. Thank you Nic for all your help and support.
Malcolm C, Denholme
Nic at Green Beans supported me in securing a mortgage for my first property in early 2020. I cannot praise Nic highly enough for the quality of her advice, the extent of her knowledge and expertise and her understanding of the complex and daunting market. Above all, as a service provider Nic was totally attentive, consistently responding to enquiries within hours as opposed to days and always keeping my needs and interests at the heart of all decision-making. I could not recommend Nic highly enough to anyone looking for high quality independent financial/mortgage advice. Thanks Nic!
Matthew M, Cleckheaton
Nic has been absolutely phenomenal with her assistance and valuable advice. She's become a trusted advisor in the time we've spent with her and she's been a god send in helping us with the mortgage for what turned out to be a less than straightforward home purchase. She was available for us every step of the way and far surpassed our expectations. Nic played a huge role in helping us through this stressful experience, and we can't speak highly enough of her! Thank you Nic
Gaurav C, York
I can't recommend Nic Jones more highly. Totally on the ball, never once had to ask her to do anything - she worked really hard for me and I got the result I wanted. She was thorough in explaining everything in a friendly and sincere manner.
Angela C, Norfolk
Financial guru, therapist, life coach, absolute whizz-kid. Not only is Nic exceptionally knowledgable about her products, lenders and the market as a whole, but her ability to come up with creative solutions to help you achieve your house buying dreams is truly mind boggling and something rarely seen, not only in the financial industry, but really anywhere. As we were considering our next house as both a family home and business opportunity, Nic worked tirelessly with great patience and sensitivity to help us formulate a plan of action that was practical, affordable and what we actually wanted out of life, rather than settling or over-reaching. Now very happy in a goldilocks-style balance, who knows if we would have even made it without Nic!
Mel C, Richmond
Nic helped myself and my husband secure a large mortgage during the pandemic which was not easy. She was clear in her advice and what was required of us. Gave helpful feedback and kept in constant communication with us throughout the entire process. She was on hand to help with any last minute hiccups and was a pilar of strength when the stress of purchasing a home in lockdown began to hit. She is a wonderful FA and I recommend her to everybody for her professionalism and compassion in each individual case.
Vicky M, Halifax
Hi, I'm Nic Jones. Welcome to Green Beans Financial. I'm an independant mortgage broker, with access to the whole of the market, including lenders that you won't find on the high street, and because I'm also an advisor, I can help you make sense of the options available and make the right choice. I love connecting with my clients and I love to solve problems. I'm a natural born fixer, and as a mortgage advisor I get to build brilliant relationships with my clients and solve their problems every day of the week. I take pride in my work because life is better that way. It feels good to get recommendations. It feels good to know I’ve helped make a family secure. It feels good to do the right thing.
I care about my clients and take pride in going above and beyond. I look for ways to add value, I work hard to earn my fees.
